garbage could not transfer from iphone to ipad via bluetooth, airdrop worked as a charm, cumbersome and counterintuitive, trash, do NOT waste time
Needs upgrade
by issamewario on 2019/11/17 12:07
Wouldn’t let me transfer 9 videos without telling me I need to buy upgrade if I want to send more than 10.... so then why can’t I send 9 for free??
Doesn’t work anymore
by Matt6485 on 2019/11/15 16:39
Maybe this is an issue with the latest iOS 13 version but the app doesn’t work anymore if you go to the web address. You’ll get a xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx unexpectedly closed the connection error. I will look elsewhere for my photo transfer needs. Too bad.
Excellent. Keeps the date and time

To download from phone to Mac each pic must be transferred individually. A PITA.
The best photo transfer program
by 19 koki on 2019/10/31 17:16
This is well worth the price for an easy program to transfer photos from your phone to your computer.try to do it on windows but it was to hard.
Garbage! Don’t Waste Your Time
by irish77?!nnnn on 2019/10/19 18:00
Had my mother’s iPad right next to my iPad. Didn’t work. Could only transfer 10 pictures without upgrading to the one where you pay &7.00. It should not be this complicated. Spent an hour trying to get it to work. I will delete it. There are much easier ways to do this. I will find them
Great app.

CONSISTANTLY AWESOME

Intuitive, simple and seamless. Highly recomnend!
Soooo Frustrating!!
by RedHeadsRule711 on 2019/10/10 18:02
This could have been an amazing app. There were several things I liked about it. But there is nothing more irritating than attempting to use an app and get a feel for it when it is constantly hounding you to purchase the upgraded version! I haven’t even completed a single transfer and the pop-ups begin informing me of all of the features I cannot use unless I purchase their Pro version!! And as I continued to use the app the pestering got more frequent and more frustrating! I make it a point to NEVER spend a dime on any app that doesn’t allow me to use their product without attempting to pressure me into giving them my money. Just build a product WORTH paying for and allow people to get used to your app before even asking them to upgrade! Keep your app. There are many more that do the same thing for free. I am happy to use one of those! And if they have a good product and don’t try to force me into an upgrade, then those are the ones who are much more likely to get my money!
Kuddos !!

I came back just to write a review
by Uncle_Richard on 2019/10/08 16:17
I was looking for something that would transfer my pictures from my iPhone to my home computer because I could not seem to get windows to do it correctly... it has taken a little finagling to get where I want but this app works wonderful, download both phone and computer software, make sure BOTH devices are on the same WiFi network, open both computer software and phone software... click discover devices and pick your phone... it then lists all your pictures... and click and transfer... my phone is iPhone 8 so the files are HEIC files.. so I downloaded a conversion app on my windows PC and convert them to JPG and can use them for eBay or whatever I want... you can also delete from your phone after downloading... thanks guys... and YES I paid the $6.99 for the app considering what it does to be worth it... Thanks
OH MY GGGGGG, 2 days of trying to transfer!!!
by Theponygirl on 2019/10/08 02:54
So I never leave reviews. But I am going to for this app. I am *extremely* frustrated because this app is continuously freezing, and unable to transfer pics and videos from my iPhone to my computer. I have literally been working for two days straight to try to transfer. I have repeatedly unplugged/reset/prayed and wished upon a Star for a magical answer to simply transfer my photos and videos, without this app crashing or freezing. I am on day two (literally over 14 hours into this now) and I am ready to pull my hair out because this is SO flipping frustrating!!!!!!!! Great app, only WHEN or IF it decides to work. When it’s not working every other 5 mins or so, it’s the worst app ever. Take your pick, and if you do download it, you better have the patience of a saint to deal with this seriously glitchy app. 🥺
Best app to transfer photos
by Traderjimk on 2019/10/05 13:13
I used to use Dropbox until I discovered how easy this app is to use. Best part is that you can also send photos directly ANYWHERE from your phone also.

Phenomenal App
by Phatpype on 2019/09/30 03:32
I have nearly 12,000 pictures synced between iPhone and computer. All categorized in folders on PC. Prior to using this app, it was a GIANT pain to download new photos from camera roll and onto computer. iPhone doesn’t do well with drag and drop folder operations. With this app however, it’s easy to put new photos in camera roll onto computer into appropriate folders. And the phone doesn’t need to be connected with cable to do it.
Awesome app!
by madjesters1 on 2019/09/28 18:58
bluetooth was annoying and I couldn’t send some images but this one did it perfectly ! Its so easy to send images from my computer to my phone and to my tablet. Only problem is that you cant send psd files somethings and only ten images at a time. No pdfs as far as im aware. Good app though.
Not worth the download
by jessealexram on 2019/09/24 10:19
Takes for ever to down load and when you do. You can only download 3 pics at a time. Big waste of time. Every time I add more then three I get a pop up stating 6 photos is the max Which is unusual cause I’m downloading less then six photos
Useless unless you pay

Does what it was meant to do and does it well
by eltiomusical on 2019/09/07 23:23
I have been using Photo Transfer for several years now. I have found it to work very effectively and permits me to work with my IPhone and at the end of the day download my work flawlessly. I can highly recommend this app. It does what it was designed to do very well.

The most efficient way to transfer photos!
by FluFluR on 2019/09/01 10:47
Love this!!! I have used this app for at least a year and find it the best way to organize the transfer of my photos and videos from my phone to my PC.
Works great for me
by Mreeves3514 on 2019/08/27 20:53
I have found this app to work very well. I’m downloading from an iPhone xs onto a Microsoft computer. I have my phone plugged into the computer USB through which the transfer is done. You can also transfer by Wi-Fi but I have not used this feature. You have to open up the Transfer app on the iPhone and also open up the application on the computer. Once they are both open and you select your iPhone it shows the first 100 photos in whatever folder you’ve select from the program running on the computer. Rather than it’s attempting to download your entire photo video library from your iPhone or other device, it downloads them in a lock of 100 at a time. There is a drop-down that allows you to select groups I’m files in intervals of 100. It will let you upload to the iPhone or download from the iPhone phots and video. It’s very quick for me, although that could be a function of Internet connection I suppose. It also gives you the option to delete the photos from your iPhone, and iPhone pops up a message to confirm before deleting. It allows you to see 99 items at a time. I’d give this five stars except that, after you download a block of 100 photos it then returns you to the first photo in the folder. I’d much rather have it return me to the next block of 100 images so that I can continue my downloading rather than my having to navigate back to that particular block of photos. Overall it works really well and I would highly recommend it.

HEIC Files

All photos come as HEIC files so you need to do an additional process to convert them to something else.

This app won’t transfer photos from my pc to my iPad
by RKWFL on 2019/08/25 21:30
I downloaded this app on my iPad and my PC so that I could download photos from my PC to my iPad. Both devices are connected and I’ve meticulously followed the instructions (about a dozen times), but after several unsuccessful hours, I am unable to transfer photos as desired. My PC seems to want to upload photos from my iPad, but that’s not what I want to do. I am totally frustrated and dissatisfied with this app.

Easy as it gets

For transferring photos from iPhone to a windows PC it doesn’t get any simpler. As long as you have WiFi access its very easy.

Only allows you to transfer 10 photos at a time! Waste of my time
Outstanding app
by jheye on 2019/07/24 07:25
Why do I need this app when I can just upload photos to Dropbox from my phone? Because I take a lot of pictures and don't want to wait forever for them to upload! I can transfer 50 photos in well under a minute- videos take a bit longer but are still quick to transfer. Just be sure your computer and phone are on same vwifi network - took me a while to figure out why the app had suddenly quit working when my hubby set up a second network and I didn't realize that was the one my phone was using. Just get thisyou'll be glad you did!
Works flawlessly

by whocaresgrxjdkec on 2019/07/14 16:09
It keeps telling me I need to upgrade to transfer more than 10 photos. I’m only trying to transfer ONE. Looking for a better option than this nightmare.
Love this app
by SAK in TX on 2019/07/09 01:56
I transfer a lot of photos from my iPhone to my Windows computer. So easy to use, no cables, no fuss. Works great.
Works fine
by reconfig on 2019/07/08 18:10
I’ve had the app for years (I think that I have the paid version) and it works. It even keeps the time stamp set correctly after the transfer back to my iPhone. It would be nice to move pics over the connecting/charging wire. This would probably be faster than using either WIFI or Bluetooth.
liar
by dew222 on 2019/07/06 17:57
said i could transfer up to 10 photos at 1 time. sometimes i could do 5 but most times it was 4. when i picked 5 sometime i could send other times when i picked 5 a popup would say you are limited to 10 or you could upgrade. when i go over 5 the popup always came up. had to pick 4 to keep the popup away. took several transfer to get to the 4 number. the popup was more of an ad than a warning.

Photo Transfer App
by GlobalEco on 2019/06/12 17:16
New version seems to scramble nos.?That can be managed, but -asking for 0001-0999 and getting the slides out of numerical order AND inclusive of strays outside the requested selection means an extra step- put directory in order and transfer incorrect numbered slides. REMARKABLE ! It performs precisely as promised AND THE DIRECTIONS ARE ACCURATE. Entirely functional for moving critical data and pics. KIK, Ph.D.
Why
by Perris8 on 2019/06/05 18:23
I paid for a pro account.You are saying that u keep quality of photos to original.However,when i send the photos via wifi to my mail, they are not 4mb as the original,but just 200kb . So this is a big scam and apple doesn t allow you to get a refund. I want my money back

Photo Transfer
by calindbl on 2019/05/22 13:38
I really liked this app. But when I Purchased the upgraded version to transfer more than 10 pictures at a time, it would not work after 100 photos. After I selected pictures on the second page and tried to transfer them it came up with a communication error and I could not get it to work after that. I uninstalled it and requested a refund, but I was denied.
Doesn’t Work As Advertised
by LBerardi318 on 2019/05/18 14:21
I was hoping this would work so I wouldn’t have to spend $9.99 a month on my iCloud storage. It gives me an error code 2032 something pertaining to iCloud photo can’t be retrieved. I’m upset I spent $6.99 on this when it doesn’t do what I need it to do. Wish I could receive a refund for it. It says if transferred over 16k photos to my computer and upon checking it only transferred 500. Very disappointing!
Outstanding App!
by Toptiger39 on 2019/05/11 15:30
Seldom do I write a review. But this time and this app are an exception! I have to say that it is seldom an app far exceeds my expectation. But, after many months of active use I have found Photo Transfer by Bitwise Software to be the best if you need to get your images/photos quickly and easily transferred from one device to the other. The app loads quickly, navigates easily, and transfers speedily. Give it a try!
Great app

They are easy to take your money but are difficult to contact and correct over charges. Their contact email doesn’t work. They charged me a yearly subscription then told me I need to upgrade. I was not upgraded after paying and was asked to do it again.
Works feat
by oakiephonokoe on 2019/04/17 00:19
Works for me from my iPhone to my PC. I’ve used this app for s couple of years now. You need to make sure you have the two devices very close to make the transfer work. Just wish it converted HEIC to JPG.
Awesome

The more I use it, the more I like it
by FrameShooter on 2019/03/19 22:36
[Here it is 2019 and I’m still happily using this app. The latest spectacular find is this: On the road I transfer RAW photos from my cameras to an iPad. If I use iCloud to later move them to my desktop PC, Apple first converts them to JPEGs. This app, however, down loads the RAW file. Bravo!] [Update for latest v 5.0 - new feature to allow deleting photos on iPhone and iPad makes this app spectacular!] I hardly ever give five stars to anything. As said in my title, the more I use the app the more I like it. I transfer to-and-from a PC running Win7 Pro using the Photo Transfer App for PCs. It's seamless. It even backs up single or multiple folders to the PC. It does such a good job of looking inside iPad photo folders, that I wish it could act as a file manager so I could delete garbage photos that have accumulate easily from my desktop. [WISH LIST!] .... Since my previous review (above) I still can't find anything wrong. How often can u say that in life? ..... The app keeps asking me to rate (which is getting annoying). This is still one of the best apps of any kind on my iPhone and iPad. It's the only 5 star I've given. (6/14)
Great way to transfer photos

Talked me into 4.99 for no reason
by BullCrapYouLyin on 2019/03/18 05:46
Do not pay the money! This app had me pay the 4.99 for no reason. It said it could only transfer 5 pics at a time and I had thousands. So I paid the money to only be able to transfer 10 pics at a time. I found better, free apps to transfer the things I needed with MUCH less hassle. Very disappointed.
I UPGRADED NOTHING CHANGED

by AmeliaEtherose on 2019/03/11 14:02
Update: Customer service contacted me quickly and shared a solution (it’s in the app settings), and now it works better than I could have asked for. SO delighted with this app! Every time I attempt to transfer photos, they appear on my computer as HEIC and I can’t actually view them. I can’t find a way to change this in any of the settings. I’m hopeful for this app because I desperately need a solution for photo transfer!
School computers
by user=anonymous on 2019/03/11 03:29
I have not tried this yet, but I’m sure it works great. I tried the contact thing to bring this up but “email is not set up”, I am just wondering if this will work on a school monitored chrome book. I mainly got this to transfer memes but I need to know if it will work.
Of course more money to make it useful!
by HarleyMan234 on 2019/03/09 13:45
I purchased this app prior and it worked sloooooly but at least it connected. I just went to use it this morning and it refuses to connect with my other device? So I tried a “new” feature the USB transfer and low and behold it hooked up immediately except that it won’t work unless I pay another $2.99. If you enjoy being ripped then purchase this app!
Transfer photo and video without Airdrop
by Patawaker on 2019/03/02 09:06
Airdrop does not work with a few of my computers. This app solves the problem for me. The interface is pleasing and intuitive and speed at which both photo and videos transfer. This app has skyrocketed to my loved app list. How exactly does it work, for example on a 2010 Mac Pro sending from an iPhone 6splus? First connect the phone and computer via Bluetooth. You download the app to both your phone and computer. Launch the app on your computer and on iPhone. The computer app will ask you to find device. Once it does you can do things such as upload files from your computer to phone, from phone to computer, delete files, etc. This app is useful since I do not use iCloud. I am glad to have it! Two thumbs up to the developers.

Have used for years but no longer works. Cannot stay connected to iPhone. Drops connection in the middle of a transfer. Have to start all over then drops connection again. Deleted app.
😐

It’s terrible !
Fantastic Program

I have used this program for several years and value it more and more.

Great application. Easy to use.
I paid to upgrade, didn’t work
by phlebotek on 2019/02/06 05:16
I paid to upgrade this app but I can still only transfer 10 photos at a time.
A real tool!!!
by eLnorteIII on 2019/02/04 18:18
Excellent tool to transfer photos from various different media sources
Transfer from iCloud Drive???
by pintofguinness on 2019/01/29 01:38
I wish I could transfer from photos on my iCloud Drive to my iPad photos app. I can transfer from Dropbox but not iCloud Drive. Why not???
Slow
by byefb on 2019/01/25 23:15
I uninstalled after I could only transfer 1 video at a time and it took over 5 min to get 34% on WiFi between an iPhone and iPad.
I came back just to write a review
by Uncle_Richard on 2019/10/08 16:17
I was looking for something that would transfer my pictures from my iPhone to my home computer because I could not seem to get windows to do it correctly... it has taken a little finagling to get where I want but this app works wonderful, download both phone and computer software, make sure BOTH devices are on the same WiFi network, open both computer software and phone software... click discover devices and pick your phone... it then lists all your pictures... and click and transfer... my phone is iPhone 8 so the files are HEIC files.. so I downloaded a conversion app on my windows PC and convert them to JPG and can use them for eBay or whatever I want... you can also delete from your phone after downloading... thanks guys... and YES I paid the $6.99 for the app considering what it does to be worth it... Thanks
Didn't work the way I was hoping
by Diamondmond on 2019/01/16 00:19
So I got this app because I wanted to transfer some videos from my Google drive to my photos so I could edit them iMovie. The only problem was they wouldn't show up when I went to the folder they were located in. So then I decided I would install the application for my PC and transfer them that way. Turns out that didn't work either so I then assumed that the reason they wouldn't transfer is because the file name extension was wmv. So now at the moment of writing this review I am C meeting these files from wmv to MP4 so I can finally transfer them to my iPhone because the video recordings on my phone are MP4 so I believe that this will finally work because this entire process I have been doing has taken two days and probably going to take a third of this doesn't work. So that is why I am rating this app the three Stars. Please respond to this and tell of any ways I could've avoided the hassle I went through, such as reading the description of the app. If you can prove to me this is an user error and that this is my fault for not paying attention, I will change my review (if I remember that I wrote it) to five Stars. Thank you for reading
Best system on the market so far, still needs some work.
by Zander R. on 2018/07/12 08:06
With multiple previous iPhones full of pictures and my current one slammed full as well, I needed and efficient method of transfer. I purchased an eReader for about $15 that never wanted to work, so paying for the full version of this app was a no brainer. I transferred from a 4, 5s, 5c, and 6, to a flash drive on Windows 8. It struggled some with my mass of pictures and the back up/save & delete feature never worked for me, but overall still performed mostly as advertised. Both apps were easily accessible and communicated well with each other. My main complaint is that use of the app is locked to one specific Apple ID instead of a log-in based system. I have used and created several IDs over the years but can not use the app I paid for to transfer from those. The ability to provide proof of paid full access and use on other devices would have bumped me to 5 stars, even with the issues I ran into. (Considering it could've been user error, of course.) Overall satisfied and would (and have) recommend.
Works great for me
by Mreeves3514 on 2019/08/27 20:53
I have found this app to work very well. I’m downloading from an iPhone xs onto a Microsoft computer. I have my phone plugged into the computer USB through which the transfer is done. You can also transfer by Wi-Fi but I have not used this feature. You have to open up the Transfer app on the iPhone and also open up the application on the computer. Once they are both open and you select your iPhone it shows the first 100 photos in whatever folder you’ve select from the program running on the computer. Rather than it’s attempting to download your entire photo video library from your iPhone or other device, it downloads them in a lock of 100 at a time. There is a drop-down that allows you to select groups I’m files in intervals of 100. It will let you upload to the iPhone or download from the iPhone phots and video. It’s very quick for me, although that could be a function of Internet connection I suppose. It also gives you the option to delete the photos from your iPhone, and iPhone pops up a message to confirm before deleting. It allows you to see 99 items at a time. I’d give this five stars except that, after you download a block of 100 photos it then returns you to the first photo in the folder. I’d much rather have it return me to the next block of 100 images so that I can continue my downloading rather than my having to navigate back to that particular block of photos. Overall it works really well and I would highly recommend it.
The more I use it, the more I like it
by FrameShooter on 2019/03/19 22:36
[Here it is 2019 and I’m still happily using this app. The latest spectacular find is this: On the road I transfer RAW photos from my cameras to an iPad. If I use iCloud to later move them to my desktop PC, Apple first converts them to JPEGs. This app, however, down loads the RAW file. Bravo!] [Update for latest v 5.0 - new feature to allow deleting photos on iPhone and iPad makes this app spectacular!] I hardly ever give five stars to anything. As said in my title, the more I use the app the more I like it. I transfer to-and-from a PC running Win7 Pro using the Photo Transfer App for PCs. It's seamless. It even backs up single or multiple folders to the PC. It does such a good job of looking inside iPad photo folders, that I wish it could act as a file manager so I could delete garbage photos that have accumulate easily from my desktop. [WISH LIST!] .... Since my previous review (above) I still can't find anything wrong. How often can u say that in life? ..... The app keeps asking me to rate (which is getting annoying). This is still one of the best apps of any kind on my iPhone and iPad. It's the only 5 star I've given. (6/14)
Soooo Frustrating!!
by RedHeadsRule711 on 2019/10/10 18:02
This could have been an amazing app. There were several things I liked about it. But there is nothing more irritating than attempting to use an app and get a feel for it when it is constantly hounding you to purchase the upgraded version! I haven’t even completed a single transfer and the pop-ups begin informing me of all of the features I cannot use unless I purchase their Pro version!! And as I continued to use the app the pestering got more frequent and more frustrating! I make it a point to NEVER spend a dime on any app that doesn’t allow me to use their product without attempting to pressure me into giving them my money. Just build a product WORTH paying for and allow people to get used to your app before even asking them to upgrade! Keep your app. There are many more that do the same thing for free. I am happy to use one of those! And if they have a good product and don’t try to force me into an upgrade, then those are the ones who are much more likely to get my money!
Reliable way to transfer photos
by dkapellen on 2017/10/01 12:34
I have struggled for years to transfer and store photos with iCloud. Sometimes it seems to work. Most times it doesn’t. When it did work, the transfer was slow. Transfer worked immediately to transfer photos from my iPhone to my Windows desktop where I prefer to organize and process my photos. Transfer is also fast. The only downside is that I have to manually open and run the program on both devices simultaneously. It is not automatic. But, then again, I was unable to even get iCloud to run manually. Reliability wins the day for me.
OH MY GGGGGG, 2 days of trying to transfer!!!
by Theponygirl on 2019/10/08 02:54
So I never leave reviews. But I am going to for this app. I am *extremely* frustrated because this app is continuously freezing, and unable to transfer pics and videos from my iPhone to my computer. I have literally been working for two days straight to try to transfer. I have repeatedly unplugged/reset/prayed and wished upon a Star for a magical answer to simply transfer my photos and videos, without this app crashing or freezing. I am on day two (literally over 14 hours into this now) and I am ready to pull my hair out because this is SO flipping frustrating!!!!!!!! Great app, only WHEN or IF it decides to work. When it’s not working every other 5 mins or so, it’s the worst app ever. Take your pick, and if you do download it, you better have the patience of a saint to deal with this seriously glitchy app. 🥺
Best App for this use!!!
by Hardcore Trek Tek on 2018/04/04 22:14
My reply. I don’t run beta software on my only working and work-related Mac. Get out that USB support for Macs ASAP and my app rating will return to 5 stars. I have been waiting for your team to release USB connectivity support for this app for many years, now! Now that you have this, PC users get this right away and we Mac users STILL have to wait! Update review for this new update. Mac users have to wait for wired USB transfer connectivity. You chose PC community to get this USB feature before Mac users? Not cool! You just lost one star for not having this USB connectivity for both platforms together. I might put the star back when Mac USB connectivity finally arrives, whenever “later this year” is. But, then again... This is the only photo transfer app that I use for a long time because it is the only photo transfer app that has ever consistently worked! This app is great at what it does and the developers keep making it better!!! Forget the also rans and use this app for easy back and forth transfers of photos and videos between your IOS devices and your computer.
Outstanding app
by jheye on 2019/07/24 07:25
Why do I need this app when I can just upload photos to Dropbox from my phone? Because I take a lot of pictures and don't want to wait forever for them to upload! I can transfer 50 photos in well under a minute- videos take a bit longer but are still quick to transfer. Just be sure your computer and phone are on same vwifi network - took me a while to figure out why the app had suddenly quit working when my hubby set up a second network and I didn't realize that was the one my phone was using. Just get thisyou'll be glad you did!
I generally don’t rate apps, but ....
by CLH3 on 2018/10/21 06:44
This is an awesome app. If you’re tired of emailing important pics to yourself, worried about loosing pics on your portable device, this app is the one that I’ve found to be the easiest, most straight forward, and does it with ease. I have around 8k pics on my iPhone and I really want on a device that I can’t drop in a storm drain. I can move massive photo’s each evening to a NAS, or various other places like Dropbox, etc. while I sleep. Optionally I can purge them from my portable device. Easy & functional. Good job developers.
Great photo transfer app! Recommend 100%
by tortmom on 2019/01/05 07:03
I’ve been using this app for a year now. I use it to transfer pictures from my IPad Pro to my pc and my droid to my pc. I purchased the pro app and I think it’s great. I download 100 pictures at a time. It’s fast, easy, and I don’t have problems. I can connect by WiFi or usb. Both have worked great for me. I think it’s so stupid Apple doesn’t give you a way to get your pictures unless you own a Mac. If you don’t own a Mac, this software is your answer. I highly recommend it.
Did what I needed!
by hpmachining on 2018/11/04 16:52
I was in a situation where I had synced some pictures on my old iPad with iTunes on my old PC. The old PC hard drive died and I was unable to transfer those pictures to my new iPad, or anywhere else for that matter, from my old iPad. Apple Support said I would need to look into 3rd party software. I found this program and was easily able to transfer the photos to the new iPad and maintain the album organization easy enough. Transfer speed was very fast with WiFi.
Can Transfer Albums from iPhone!
by sydfb on 2018/05/22 23:26
I had an album full of photos of my kiddos playing soccer that I needed to download to my PC. Who knew that would be so difficult! Couldn’t find a way to do it via my phone, iCloud, iTunes, etc., so thank goodness for this app. I can select any album off my phone to easily transfer photos to my laptop via WiFi or USB. I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed an app before, but I had to give this one 5-stars because it really was a life saver!
Transfer photo and video without Airdrop
by Patawaker on 2019/03/02 09:06
Airdrop does not work with a few of my computers. This app solves the problem for me. The interface is pleasing and intuitive and speed at which both photo and videos transfer. This app has skyrocketed to my loved app list. How exactly does it work, for example on a 2010 Mac Pro sending from an iPhone 6splus? First connect the phone and computer via Bluetooth. You download the app to both your phone and computer. Launch the app on your computer and on iPhone. The computer app will ask you to find device. Once it does you can do things such as upload files from your computer to phone, from phone to computer, delete files, etc. This app is useful since I do not use iCloud. I am glad to have it! Two thumbs up to the developers.
Great wireless photo transfer!
by RinaMamaSoph on 2017/10/28 19:01
I was able to transfer all the pics from my iPhone to my laptop, wirelessly, using this app! A few months back there were some glitches, and I emailed customer service. They responded very promptly, let me know that they would fix any bugs that were coming up, and really seemed to care about helping me. Issues I was having were resolved and the app works great! This is a very useful app and a great company!
Phenomenal App
by Phatpype on 2019/09/30 03:32
I have nearly 12,000 pictures synced between iPhone and computer. All categorized in folders on PC. Prior to using this app, it was a GIANT pain to download new photos from camera roll and onto computer. iPhone doesn’t do well with drag and drop folder operations. With this app however, it’s easy to put new photos in camera roll onto computer into appropriate folders. And the phone doesn’t need to be connected with cable to do it.
Just what I needed!
by AmeliaEtherose on 2019/03/11 14:02
Update: Customer service contacted me quickly and shared a solution (it’s in the app settings), and now it works better than I could have asked for. SO delighted with this app! Every time I attempt to transfer photos, they appear on my computer as HEIC and I can’t actually view them. I can’t find a way to change this in any of the settings. I’m hopeful for this app because I desperately need a solution for photo transfer!
Unreliable
by Red Coyote7 on 2018/05/07 21:39
I used this photo transfer tool for about a year to copy (sometimes large) photo files from my iPad Pro to my laptop with no problems until recently. Over the last several months, the process “stalls” during the transfer, then I get a message saying that I’ve lost connection with the internet even after verifying both devices clearly are connected to the internet and my wi-fi is working. I then have to reboot both devices and start over. What used to be a relatively smooth process has become cumbersome and frustrating. I’m now looking for an alternate method of transfer.
Big improvement!!!!
by Coastaldog on 2018/02/25 19:37
The revised app in conjunction with the computer app has made transferring photos back and forth a lot easier. Feb 2018....Found a minor bug. When done transferring photos from my iPhone to my computer and I’m backing out of Photo Transfer; when I get to the screen that has “send on Wi Fi” and touch the X, the SAME SCREEN BOUNCES RIGHT BACK UP. It didn’t do this prior to some recent updates. Developer needs to fix this bug.
It WORKS!!!!
by GWD4 on 2017/09/17 18:33
There is only one thing to say about this program: it works! It works well, It works easily, It works quickly, It works perfectly. I have tried many other apps, but this one is by far my choice. I'm happy enough to keep singing it's praises, but that adds nothing. Download it, upgrade to pro immediately to save hassle. If your time is worth only $0.10/hr, it'll be well worth it. An app that REALLY does what it says. Wow!
Outstanding App!
by Toptiger39 on 2019/05/11 15:30
Seldom do I write a review. But this time and this app are an exception! I have to say that it is seldom an app far exceeds my expectation. But, after many months of active use I have found Photo Transfer by Bitwise Software to be the best if you need to get your images/photos quickly and easily transferred from one device to the other. The app loads quickly, navigates easily, and transfers speedily. Give it a try!
Does what It Said It would
by the man with 3 first names on 2018/03/03 23:04
Love this app. I have another app that is meant to do the same thing, and I have a lightening to USB drive to transfer pictures & videos too. Of the 3 I choose this app because it works well and is fairly easy to use. Every now and then it crashes during a download, but it doesn’t stop me from choosing this over and over to transfer my media.
Finally found a solution to NOT using iCloud! And an easy way to delete photo’s!
by Toddler heaven on 2018/01/26 22:45
This app is great. I’ve struggled for years to find a way to download my folders as I organize photo’s on phone a bit and haven’t wanted to lose that when downloading. This app does it!! Plus if wanting to free space deleting photo’s is super easy from desktop app as opposed to iPhone which takes forever!
I never volunteer reviews
by Walter, BS on 2018/08/26 19:57
I have been using PTA for at least several years now. It has always been good but it continues to improve. It does a lot of things that I have never looked into but it does what I need consistently and reliably. I use it at least several times a week and sometimes more. I hope I never need to be without this one! This app is definitely worth breaking my pattern.
Works fine
by reconfig on 2019/07/08 18:10
I’ve had the app for years (I think that I have the paid version) and it works. It even keeps the time stamp set correctly after the transfer back to my iPhone. It would be nice to move pics over the connecting/charging wire. This would probably be faster than using either WIFI or Bluetooth.
Terrible
by Fmoszhjurcbnmxfoo on 2017/11/05 00:58
This app is honestly terrible, I tried to use it to see if it could help me with my portfolio review in 2 days yet I can’t even find more than 1 freaking file from my drive, are you kidding me? I saw the real reviews from real people, 6.99 to be able to do something simplistic is a waste and I’m not going to keep this app at all, even in my app download history. Why would I pay for a “full version” of the free one couldn’t show me more than 2 of my files? Don’t reply to this as I don’t want your garbage excuse and unrealistic response of “wanting” to assist me with messages of the issue to fix it, I’m done.
Buy it!
by Coös Ken on 2017/10/26 12:36
One of the most practical apps that I have bought. I have always had problems transferring photos from my IPad to my IMac. This app allows you to transfer any format with full resolution to the folder of your choice through your WiFi quickly with the option of deleting the IPad files. Worth every penny.
Works for Me
by pen_rick on 2018/01/26 20:10
I use the app to send photos from my iPhone to a PC for Photoshop Elements fine tuning of my images. Works well. You do have to have the app open on both devices and both have to be on the same wifi network. Also, I now need to select an option on the phone’s app which converts HEIC (iOS 11) to JPG format during the transfer.
Easy - great app, no need to carry a cable
by Expect perfection on 2018/09/03 02:23
I have been using this app for years. It does what it said. Transfer photos to from my other iOS products and Windows computers without a hitch. Only if the Windows side can find my iPhone faster, it now takes about 10 seconds to discover it. it maybe the WiFi issue.
Does what it was meant to do and does it well
by eltiomusical on 2019/09/07 23:23
I have been using Photo Transfer for several years now. I have found it to work very effectively and permits me to work with my IPhone and at the end of the day download my work flawlessly. I can highly recommend this app. It does what it was designed to do very well.
It works with no muss no fuss
by Humptybump on 2019/01/15 23:57
This app has really grown since I first used it! Today it totally saved my bacon. As others have found, transferring photos and video from an iOS device to a Windows PC has become a PITA. This app does it effortlessly! I love that it can handle HEIC conversion and can even transfer originals and edits of photos! Caveat: with 400 images at a time it can get buggered so it’s wise to use folders when downloading. Way back when: I wanted this app for transferring iPhone photos to iPad for viewing and editing and it works great. It also works for transferring to my PC without needing software on the computer. I've gone ahead and deleted all the other apps I had for these tasks. This one "just works"!
When it works....
by Jackfloss on 2018/03/29 22:35
The app is great when it works. However it doesn't always "recognize my device ". When that happens I turn it all off and restart. Sometimes that solves the problem and other times I just wait for a couple of hours before retrying
Simple
by NGTCPA on 2018/05/13 16:59
Works great but this is what it need. 1) the ability to skip a file that won’t download for some reason without having to start over. 2) the ability to download all files without having to break the up into slacker groups. I had 2500 picture and the most I could do was 400 at s time. It took quite a long time to finish bush.
Easy!!
by Ellehuny on 2017/09/19 19:27
I tried several apps and this is the only one I could get to work easily. You will need to download the software to your computer but after doing that it is so easy to make this thing work and transfer pictures from iPhone to computer.
The answer to your prayers
by ChrissySimsen on 2018/02/24 02:28
I have used this app for YEARS! Well as long as it’s been around! I have struggled so much with finding a FAST and EASY way to transfer my photos. I transfer 200 photos in less than a minute from my phone to my Mac. Seriously, I would be lost without this app.
Great transfer app
by Mike-mn on 2018/04/05 13:52
This app has been working great for me. Very in frequently it won’t be able to find my phone, all I do in that situation is turn off and then on again Bluetooth on my computer. Very infrequently needed. I wish it would transfer files created by other apps like voice recorder. Maybe future releases will have that capability.
Easiest Pic Transfer App There Is
by AMateToTalkTo on 2017/09/04 09:44
Love the simplicity of this app. Load on your cellphone, and your Pc or Mac, open the apps, and identify each, and you're good to go. Simple click and go to transfer your pics, videos, files, etc. If you're looking for a very, VERY good file transfer app, you've just found it
Awesome app!
by madjesters1 on 2019/09/28 18:58
bluetooth was annoying and I couldn’t send some images but this one did it perfectly ! Its so easy to send images from my computer to my phone and to my tablet. Only problem is that you cant send psd files somethings and only ten images at a time. No pdfs as far as im aware. Good app though.
Copies pics to my PC preserving edits
by TomChatt on 2017/09/05 00:36
I had been frustrated with other programs (e.g. Dropbox) that copied photos to my PC, but would lose any editing I had done on my iPhone. This app preserves all the edits, so that if I've gone to the trouble to crop/edit the pic on my phone, I don't lose my edits when copying to PC. That's just what I wanted.
Savior, transferring from Apple products to PC
by Kiln Time on 2018/10/05 03:18
I really wanted something to transfer photos from my IPAD and IPhone to my windows PC. Setup in a few minutes in all three devices. I bought the upgrade for 6.99, once. It was good for both Apple devices. Transferred quickly and easy.
The App works and the developers are great.
by Don't pause the horse on 2018/04/02 14:12
There are a number of photo transfer apps, but not only is this one of the best, but the developers are continually making improvements and are extremely responsive to user feedback. Very impressed with the app and the customer service provided!
Amazing App
by Drummerd99 on 2018/03/20 19:15
It just works! The images transfer seamlessly and quickly. As a professional photographer I don’t have time to wait for my images to transfer from my IPad to my IMac. This app does it quick and pain free. And my files are big - 42mp each. Get the app. You. Won’t. Be. Disappointed.
Exceptionally Useful App
by Brcal69 on 2017/10/26 19:30
If you use multiple cameras and store photos in several places, this will be one of your most useful apps. It allows you to quickly transfer large batches of photos between devices on a wide variety of platforms. I use it all the time.
Great app! Life saver for pc users with photo albums stuck on their iphones
by i1256 on 2018/09/24 20:37
Great app that transfers photo albums on iPhones to your pc device. Bridges the difficult gap between apple and pc life! Thankgoodness this app is amazing and great quality (original quality) kept for all the photos. It works. It actually works!!!💕 🎉
Better than iTunes by far!
by Kelvington98765 on 2019/01/09 21:05
This program works so well at home or at work, no wires needed. It sends and receives photos and videos easier than any thing out there. I hope in future they add music and ringtones. Then I’ll never need iTunes again.
It has potential
by Tambi Traveler on 2018/01/18 07:32
The concept for the app is great. However, the reliability of the actual file transfers is moderate. I often have errors or hangs during the transfer of large batches of files. When it happens the application has to be restarted since it can’t recover on its own. It would be great if the app also worked via a wired connection if it is more reliable.
Best Transfer Ever
by Tech Consultant on 2017/10/18 18:36
For transferring photos between phones, tablets, Computers and other devices this product beats all others hands down. It is self intuitive and easy to use. I needed customer support and they got back to me immediately with the solution. My best app purchase ever.
Very good app but.....👇🏽
by 1st-time reviewer on 2018/05/02 02:56
Okay... now the April 30th update of Windows 10 has screwed up my app... it won’t recognize my iPhone or iPad 😛 This is by far and a way the best way to transfer things between your computer and iOS devices, but it’s not working now. Is there a fix????🤔

garbage could not transfer from iphone to ipad via bluetooth, airdrop worked as a charm, cumbersome and counterintuitive, trash, do NOT waste time
Needs upgrade
by issamewario on 2019/11/17 12:07
Wouldn’t let me transfer 9 videos without telling me I need to buy upgrade if I want to send more than 10.... so then why can’t I send 9 for free??
Doesn’t work anymore
by Matt6485 on 2019/11/15 16:39
Maybe this is an issue with the latest iOS 13 version but the app doesn’t work anymore if you go to the web address. You’ll get a xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx unexpectedly closed the connection error. I will look elsewhere for my photo transfer needs. Too bad.

The best photo transfer program
by 19 koki on 2019/10/31 17:16
This is well worth the price for an easy program to transfer photos from your phone to your computer.try to do it on windows but it was to hard.
Garbage! Don’t Waste Your Time
by irish77?!nnnn on 2019/10/19 18:00
Had my mother’s iPad right next to my iPad. Didn’t work. Could only transfer 10 pictures without upgrading to the one where you pay &7.00. It should not be this complicated. Spent an hour trying to get it to work. I will delete it. There are much easier ways to do this. I will find them
Great app.

Soooo Frustrating!!
by RedHeadsRule711 on 2019/10/10 18:02
This could have been an amazing app. There were several things I liked about it. But there is nothing more irritating than attempting to use an app and get a feel for it when it is constantly hounding you to purchase the upgraded version! I haven’t even completed a single transfer and the pop-ups begin informing me of all of the features I cannot use unless I purchase their Pro version!! And as I continued to use the app the pestering got more frequent and more frustrating! I make it a point to NEVER spend a dime on any app that doesn’t allow me to use their product without attempting to pressure me into giving them my money. Just build a product WORTH paying for and allow people to get used to your app before even asking them to upgrade! Keep your app. There are many more that do the same thing for free. I am happy to use one of those! And if they have a good product and don’t try to force me into an upgrade, then those are the ones who are much more likely to get my money!

I came back just to write a review
by Uncle_Richard on 2019/10/08 16:17
I was looking for something that would transfer my pictures from my iPhone to my home computer because I could not seem to get windows to do it correctly... it has taken a little finagling to get where I want but this app works wonderful, download both phone and computer software, make sure BOTH devices are on the same WiFi network, open both computer software and phone software... click discover devices and pick your phone... it then lists all your pictures... and click and transfer... my phone is iPhone 8 so the files are HEIC files.. so I downloaded a conversion app on my windows PC and convert them to JPG and can use them for eBay or whatever I want... you can also delete from your phone after downloading... thanks guys... and YES I paid the $6.99 for the app considering what it does to be worth it... Thanks
OH MY GGGGGG, 2 days of trying to transfer!!!
by Theponygirl on 2019/10/08 02:54
So I never leave reviews. But I am going to for this app. I am *extremely* frustrated because this app is continuously freezing, and unable to transfer pics and videos from my iPhone to my computer. I have literally been working for two days straight to try to transfer. I have repeatedly unplugged/reset/prayed and wished upon a Star for a magical answer to simply transfer my photos and videos, without this app crashing or freezing. I am on day two (literally over 14 hours into this now) and I am ready to pull my hair out because this is SO flipping frustrating!!!!!!!! Great app, only WHEN or IF it decides to work. When it’s not working every other 5 mins or so, it’s the worst app ever. Take your pick, and if you do download it, you better have the patience of a saint to deal with this seriously glitchy app. 🥺
Best app to transfer photos
by Traderjimk on 2019/10/05 13:13
I used to use Dropbox until I discovered how easy this app is to use. Best part is that you can also send photos directly ANYWHERE from your phone also.

Phenomenal App
by Phatpype on 2019/09/30 03:32
I have nearly 12,000 pictures synced between iPhone and computer. All categorized in folders on PC. Prior to using this app, it was a GIANT pain to download new photos from camera roll and onto computer. iPhone doesn’t do well with drag and drop folder operations. With this app however, it’s easy to put new photos in camera roll onto computer into appropriate folders. And the phone doesn’t need to be connected with cable to do it.
Awesome app!
by madjesters1 on 2019/09/28 18:58
bluetooth was annoying and I couldn’t send some images but this one did it perfectly ! Its so easy to send images from my computer to my phone and to my tablet. Only problem is that you cant send psd files somethings and only ten images at a time. No pdfs as far as im aware. Good app though.
Not worth the download
by jessealexram on 2019/09/24 10:19
Takes for ever to down load and when you do. You can only download 3 pics at a time. Big waste of time. Every time I add more then three I get a pop up stating 6 photos is the max Which is unusual cause I’m downloading less then six photos
Useless unless you pay

I have been using Photo Transfer for several years now. I have found it to work very effectively and permits me to work with my IPhone and at the end of the day download my work flawlessly. I can highly recommend this app. It does what it was designed to do very well.

The most efficient way to transfer photos!
by FluFluR on 2019/09/01 10:47
Love this!!! I have used this app for at least a year and find it the best way to organize the transfer of my photos and videos from my phone to my PC.
Works great for me
by Mreeves3514 on 2019/08/27 20:53
I have found this app to work very well. I’m downloading from an iPhone xs onto a Microsoft computer. I have my phone plugged into the computer USB through which the transfer is done. You can also transfer by Wi-Fi but I have not used this feature. You have to open up the Transfer app on the iPhone and also open up the application on the computer. Once they are both open and you select your iPhone it shows the first 100 photos in whatever folder you’ve select from the program running on the computer. Rather than it’s attempting to download your entire photo video library from your iPhone or other device, it downloads them in a lock of 100 at a time. There is a drop-down that allows you to select groups I’m files in intervals of 100. It will let you upload to the iPhone or download from the iPhone phots and video. It’s very quick for me, although that could be a function of Internet connection I suppose. It also gives you the option to delete the photos from your iPhone, and iPhone pops up a message to confirm before deleting. It allows you to see 99 items at a time. I’d give this five stars except that, after you download a block of 100 photos it then returns you to the first photo in the folder. I’d much rather have it return me to the next block of 100 images so that I can continue my downloading rather than my having to navigate back to that particular block of photos. Overall it works really well and I would highly recommend it.

This app won’t transfer photos from my pc to my iPad
by RKWFL on 2019/08/25 21:30
I downloaded this app on my iPad and my PC so that I could download photos from my PC to my iPad. Both devices are connected and I’ve meticulously followed the instructions (about a dozen times), but after several unsuccessful hours, I am unable to transfer photos as desired. My PC seems to want to upload photos from my iPad, but that’s not what I want to do. I am totally frustrated and dissatisfied with this app.

Outstanding app
by jheye on 2019/07/24 07:25
Why do I need this app when I can just upload photos to Dropbox from my phone? Because I take a lot of pictures and don't want to wait forever for them to upload! I can transfer 50 photos in well under a minute- videos take a bit longer but are still quick to transfer. Just be sure your computer and phone are on same vwifi network - took me a while to figure out why the app had suddenly quit working when my hubby set up a second network and I didn't realize that was the one my phone was using. Just get thisyou'll be glad you did!

Love this app
by SAK in TX on 2019/07/09 01:56
I transfer a lot of photos from my iPhone to my Windows computer. So easy to use, no cables, no fuss. Works great.
Works fine
by reconfig on 2019/07/08 18:10
I’ve had the app for years (I think that I have the paid version) and it works. It even keeps the time stamp set correctly after the transfer back to my iPhone. It would be nice to move pics over the connecting/charging wire. This would probably be faster than using either WIFI or Bluetooth.
liar
by dew222 on 2019/07/06 17:57
said i could transfer up to 10 photos at 1 time. sometimes i could do 5 but most times it was 4. when i picked 5 sometime i could send other times when i picked 5 a popup would say you are limited to 10 or you could upgrade. when i go over 5 the popup always came up. had to pick 4 to keep the popup away. took several transfer to get to the 4 number. the popup was more of an ad than a warning.

Photo Transfer App
by GlobalEco on 2019/06/12 17:16
New version seems to scramble nos.?That can be managed, but -asking for 0001-0999 and getting the slides out of numerical order AND inclusive of strays outside the requested selection means an extra step- put directory in order and transfer incorrect numbered slides. REMARKABLE ! It performs precisely as promised AND THE DIRECTIONS ARE ACCURATE. Entirely functional for moving critical data and pics. KIK, Ph.D.
Why
by Perris8 on 2019/06/05 18:23
I paid for a pro account.You are saying that u keep quality of photos to original.However,when i send the photos via wifi to my mail, they are not 4mb as the original,but just 200kb . So this is a big scam and apple doesn t allow you to get a refund. I want my money back

Photo Transfer
by calindbl on 2019/05/22 13:38
I really liked this app. But when I Purchased the upgraded version to transfer more than 10 pictures at a time, it would not work after 100 photos. After I selected pictures on the second page and tried to transfer them it came up with a communication error and I could not get it to work after that. I uninstalled it and requested a refund, but I was denied.
Doesn’t Work As Advertised
by LBerardi318 on 2019/05/18 14:21
I was hoping this would work so I wouldn’t have to spend $9.99 a month on my iCloud storage. It gives me an error code 2032 something pertaining to iCloud photo can’t be retrieved. I’m upset I spent $6.99 on this when it doesn’t do what I need it to do. Wish I could receive a refund for it. It says if transferred over 16k photos to my computer and upon checking it only transferred 500. Very disappointing!
Outstanding App!
by Toptiger39 on 2019/05/11 15:30
Seldom do I write a review. But this time and this app are an exception! I have to say that it is seldom an app far exceeds my expectation. But, after many months of active use I have found Photo Transfer by Bitwise Software to be the best if you need to get your images/photos quickly and easily transferred from one device to the other. The app loads quickly, navigates easily, and transfers speedily. Give it a try!

They are easy to take your money but are difficult to contact and correct over charges. Their contact email doesn’t work. They charged me a yearly subscription then told me I need to upgrade. I was not upgraded after paying and was asked to do it again.
Works feat
by oakiephonokoe on 2019/04/17 00:19
Works for me from my iPhone to my PC. I’ve used this app for s couple of years now. You need to make sure you have the two devices very close to make the transfer work. Just wish it converted HEIC to JPG.

The more I use it, the more I like it
by FrameShooter on 2019/03/19 22:36
[Here it is 2019 and I’m still happily using this app. The latest spectacular find is this: On the road I transfer RAW photos from my cameras to an iPad. If I use iCloud to later move them to my desktop PC, Apple first converts them to JPEGs. This app, however, down loads the RAW file. Bravo!] [Update for latest v 5.0 - new feature to allow deleting photos on iPhone and iPad makes this app spectacular!] I hardly ever give five stars to anything. As said in my title, the more I use the app the more I like it. I transfer to-and-from a PC running Win7 Pro using the Photo Transfer App for PCs. It's seamless. It even backs up single or multiple folders to the PC. It does such a good job of looking inside iPad photo folders, that I wish it could act as a file manager so I could delete garbage photos that have accumulate easily from my desktop. [WISH LIST!] .... Since my previous review (above) I still can't find anything wrong. How often can u say that in life? ..... The app keeps asking me to rate (which is getting annoying). This is still one of the best apps of any kind on my iPhone and iPad. It's the only 5 star I've given. (6/14)
Great way to transfer photos

Talked me into 4.99 for no reason
by BullCrapYouLyin on 2019/03/18 05:46
Do not pay the money! This app had me pay the 4.99 for no reason. It said it could only transfer 5 pics at a time and I had thousands. So I paid the money to only be able to transfer 10 pics at a time. I found better, free apps to transfer the things I needed with MUCH less hassle. Very disappointed.

by AmeliaEtherose on 2019/03/11 14:02
Update: Customer service contacted me quickly and shared a solution (it’s in the app settings), and now it works better than I could have asked for. SO delighted with this app! Every time I attempt to transfer photos, they appear on my computer as HEIC and I can’t actually view them. I can’t find a way to change this in any of the settings. I’m hopeful for this app because I desperately need a solution for photo transfer!
School computers
by user=anonymous on 2019/03/11 03:29
I have not tried this yet, but I’m sure it works great. I tried the contact thing to bring this up but “email is not set up”, I am just wondering if this will work on a school monitored chrome book. I mainly got this to transfer memes but I need to know if it will work.
Of course more money to make it useful!
by HarleyMan234 on 2019/03/09 13:45
I purchased this app prior and it worked sloooooly but at least it connected. I just went to use it this morning and it refuses to connect with my other device? So I tried a “new” feature the USB transfer and low and behold it hooked up immediately except that it won’t work unless I pay another $2.99. If you enjoy being ripped then purchase this app!
Transfer photo and video without Airdrop
by Patawaker on 2019/03/02 09:06
Airdrop does not work with a few of my computers. This app solves the problem for me. The interface is pleasing and intuitive and speed at which both photo and videos transfer. This app has skyrocketed to my loved app list. How exactly does it work, for example on a 2010 Mac Pro sending from an iPhone 6splus? First connect the phone and computer via Bluetooth. You download the app to both your phone and computer. Launch the app on your computer and on iPhone. The computer app will ask you to find device. Once it does you can do things such as upload files from your computer to phone, from phone to computer, delete files, etc. This app is useful since I do not use iCloud. I am glad to have it! Two thumbs up to the developers.

Have used for years but no longer works. Cannot stay connected to iPhone. Drops connection in the middle of a transfer. Have to start all over then drops connection again. Deleted app.
😐

It’s terrible !
Fantastic Program
by Manito77 on 2019/02/08 14:29
I have used this program for several years and value it more and more.

Great application. Easy to use.
I paid to upgrade, didn’t work
by phlebotek on 2019/02/06 05:16
I paid to upgrade this app but I can still only transfer 10 photos at a time.
A real tool!!!
by eLnorteIII on 2019/02/04 18:18
Excellent tool to transfer photos from various different media sources
Transfer from iCloud Drive???
by pintofguinness on 2019/01/29 01:38
I wish I could transfer from photos on my iCloud Drive to my iPad photos app. I can transfer from Dropbox but not iCloud Drive. Why not???
Slow
by byefb on 2019/01/25 23:15
I uninstalled after I could only transfer 1 video at a time and it took over 5 min to get 34% on WiFi between an iPhone and iPad.
I came back just to write a review
by Uncle_Richard on 2019/10/08 16:17
I was looking for something that would transfer my pictures from my iPhone to my home computer because I could not seem to get windows to do it correctly... it has taken a little finagling to get where I want but this app works wonderful, download both phone and computer software, make sure BOTH devices are on the same WiFi network, open both computer software and phone software... click discover devices and pick your phone... it then lists all your pictures... and click and transfer... my phone is iPhone 8 so the files are HEIC files.. so I downloaded a conversion app on my windows PC and convert them to JPG and can use them for eBay or whatever I want... you can also delete from your phone after downloading... thanks guys... and YES I paid the $6.99 for the app considering what it does to be worth it... Thanks
Didn't work the way I was hoping
by Diamondmond on 2019/01/16 00:19
So I got this app because I wanted to transfer some videos from my Google drive to my photos so I could edit them iMovie. The only problem was they wouldn't show up when I went to the folder they were located in. So then I decided I would install the application for my PC and transfer them that way. Turns out that didn't work either so I then assumed that the reason they wouldn't transfer is because the file name extension was wmv. So now at the moment of writing this review I am C meeting these files from wmv to MP4 so I can finally transfer them to my iPhone because the video recordings on my phone are MP4 so I believe that this will finally work because this entire process I have been doing has taken two days and probably going to take a third of this doesn't work. So that is why I am rating this app the three Stars. Please respond to this and tell of any ways I could've avoided the hassle I went through, such as reading the description of the app. If you can prove to me this is an user error and that this is my fault for not paying attention, I will change my review (if I remember that I wrote it) to five Stars. Thank you for reading
Best system on the market so far, still needs some work.
by Zander R. on 2018/07/12 08:06
With multiple previous iPhones full of pictures and my current one slammed full as well, I needed and efficient method of transfer. I purchased an eReader for about $15 that never wanted to work, so paying for the full version of this app was a no brainer. I transferred from a 4, 5s, 5c, and 6, to a flash drive on Windows 8. It struggled some with my mass of pictures and the back up/save & delete feature never worked for me, but overall still performed mostly as advertised. Both apps were easily accessible and communicated well with each other. My main complaint is that use of the app is locked to one specific Apple ID instead of a log-in based system. I have used and created several IDs over the years but can not use the app I paid for to transfer from those. The ability to provide proof of paid full access and use on other devices would have bumped me to 5 stars, even with the issues I ran into. (Considering it could've been user error, of course.) Overall satisfied and would (and have) recommend.
Works great for me
by Mreeves3514 on 2019/08/27 20:53
I have found this app to work very well. I’m downloading from an iPhone xs onto a Microsoft computer. I have my phone plugged into the computer USB through which the transfer is done. You can also transfer by Wi-Fi but I have not used this feature. You have to open up the Transfer app on the iPhone and also open up the application on the computer. Once they are both open and you select your iPhone it shows the first 100 photos in whatever folder you’ve select from the program running on the computer. Rather than it’s attempting to download your entire photo video library from your iPhone or other device, it downloads them in a lock of 100 at a time. There is a drop-down that allows you to select groups I’m files in intervals of 100. It will let you upload to the iPhone or download from the iPhone phots and video. It’s very quick for me, although that could be a function of Internet connection I suppose. It also gives you the option to delete the photos from your iPhone, and iPhone pops up a message to confirm before deleting. It allows you to see 99 items at a time. I’d give this five stars except that, after you download a block of 100 photos it then returns you to the first photo in the folder. I’d much rather have it return me to the next block of 100 images so that I can continue my downloading rather than my having to navigate back to that particular block of photos. Overall it works really well and I would highly recommend it.
The more I use it, the more I like it
by FrameShooter on 2019/03/19 22:36
[Here it is 2019 and I’m still happily using this app. The latest spectacular find is this: On the road I transfer RAW photos from my cameras to an iPad. If I use iCloud to later move them to my desktop PC, Apple first converts them to JPEGs. This app, however, down loads the RAW file. Bravo!] [Update for latest v 5.0 - new feature to allow deleting photos on iPhone and iPad makes this app spectacular!] I hardly ever give five stars to anything. As said in my title, the more I use the app the more I like it. I transfer to-and-from a PC running Win7 Pro using the Photo Transfer App for PCs. It's seamless. It even backs up single or multiple folders to the PC. It does such a good job of looking inside iPad photo folders, that I wish it could act as a file manager so I could delete garbage photos that have accumulate easily from my desktop. [WISH LIST!] .... Since my previous review (above) I still can't find anything wrong. How often can u say that in life? ..... The app keeps asking me to rate (which is getting annoying). This is still one of the best apps of any kind on my iPhone and iPad. It's the only 5 star I've given. (6/14)
Soooo Frustrating!!
by RedHeadsRule711 on 2019/10/10 18:02
This could have been an amazing app. There were several things I liked about it. But there is nothing more irritating than attempting to use an app and get a feel for it when it is constantly hounding you to purchase the upgraded version! I haven’t even completed a single transfer and the pop-ups begin informing me of all of the features I cannot use unless I purchase their Pro version!! And as I continued to use the app the pestering got more frequent and more frustrating! I make it a point to NEVER spend a dime on any app that doesn’t allow me to use their product without attempting to pressure me into giving them my money. Just build a product WORTH paying for and allow people to get used to your app before even asking them to upgrade! Keep your app. There are many more that do the same thing for free. I am happy to use one of those! And if they have a good product and don’t try to force me into an upgrade, then those are the ones who are much more likely to get my money!
Reliable way to transfer photos
by dkapellen on 2017/10/01 12:34
I have struggled for years to transfer and store photos with iCloud. Sometimes it seems to work. Most times it doesn’t. When it did work, the transfer was slow. Transfer worked immediately to transfer photos from my iPhone to my Windows desktop where I prefer to organize and process my photos. Transfer is also fast. The only downside is that I have to manually open and run the program on both devices simultaneously. It is not automatic. But, then again, I was unable to even get iCloud to run manually. Reliability wins the day for me.
OH MY GGGGGG, 2 days of trying to transfer!!!
by Theponygirl on 2019/10/08 02:54
So I never leave reviews. But I am going to for this app. I am *extremely* frustrated because this app is continuously freezing, and unable to transfer pics and videos from my iPhone to my computer. I have literally been working for two days straight to try to transfer. I have repeatedly unplugged/reset/prayed and wished upon a Star for a magical answer to simply transfer my photos and videos, without this app crashing or freezing. I am on day two (literally over 14 hours into this now) and I am ready to pull my hair out because this is SO flipping frustrating!!!!!!!! Great app, only WHEN or IF it decides to work. When it’s not working every other 5 mins or so, it’s the worst app ever. Take your pick, and if you do download it, you better have the patience of a saint to deal with this seriously glitchy app. 🥺
Best App for this use!!!
by Hardcore Trek Tek on 2018/04/04 22:14
My reply. I don’t run beta software on my only working and work-related Mac. Get out that USB support for Macs ASAP and my app rating will return to 5 stars. I have been waiting for your team to release USB connectivity support for this app for many years, now! Now that you have this, PC users get this right away and we Mac users STILL have to wait! Update review for this new update. Mac users have to wait for wired USB transfer connectivity. You chose PC community to get this USB feature before Mac users? Not cool! You just lost one star for not having this USB connectivity for both platforms together. I might put the star back when Mac USB connectivity finally arrives, whenever “later this year” is. But, then again... This is the only photo transfer app that I use for a long time because it is the only photo transfer app that has ever consistently worked! This app is great at what it does and the developers keep making it better!!! Forget the also rans and use this app for easy back and forth transfers of photos and videos between your IOS devices and your computer.
Outstanding app
by jheye on 2019/07/24 07:25
Why do I need this app when I can just upload photos to Dropbox from my phone? Because I take a lot of pictures and don't want to wait forever for them to upload! I can transfer 50 photos in well under a minute- videos take a bit longer but are still quick to transfer. Just be sure your computer and phone are on same vwifi network - took me a while to figure out why the app had suddenly quit working when my hubby set up a second network and I didn't realize that was the one my phone was using. Just get thisyou'll be glad you did!
I generally don’t rate apps, but ....
by CLH3 on 2018/10/21 06:44
This is an awesome app. If you’re tired of emailing important pics to yourself, worried about loosing pics on your portable device, this app is the one that I’ve found to be the easiest, most straight forward, and does it with ease. I have around 8k pics on my iPhone and I really want on a device that I can’t drop in a storm drain. I can move massive photo’s each evening to a NAS, or various other places like Dropbox, etc. while I sleep. Optionally I can purge them from my portable device. Easy & functional. Good job developers.
Great photo transfer app! Recommend 100%
by tortmom on 2019/01/05 07:03
I’ve been using this app for a year now. I use it to transfer pictures from my IPad Pro to my pc and my droid to my pc. I purchased the pro app and I think it’s great. I download 100 pictures at a time. It’s fast, easy, and I don’t have problems. I can connect by WiFi or usb. Both have worked great for me. I think it’s so stupid Apple doesn’t give you a way to get your pictures unless you own a Mac. If you don’t own a Mac, this software is your answer. I highly recommend it.
Did what I needed!
by hpmachining on 2018/11/04 16:52
I was in a situation where I had synced some pictures on my old iPad with iTunes on my old PC. The old PC hard drive died and I was unable to transfer those pictures to my new iPad, or anywhere else for that matter, from my old iPad. Apple Support said I would need to look into 3rd party software. I found this program and was easily able to transfer the photos to the new iPad and maintain the album organization easy enough. Transfer speed was very fast with WiFi.
Can Transfer Albums from iPhone!
by sydfb on 2018/05/22 23:26
I had an album full of photos of my kiddos playing soccer that I needed to download to my PC. Who knew that would be so difficult! Couldn’t find a way to do it via my phone, iCloud, iTunes, etc., so thank goodness for this app. I can select any album off my phone to easily transfer photos to my laptop via WiFi or USB. I don’t think I’ve ever reviewed an app before, but I had to give this one 5-stars because it really was a life saver!
Transfer photo and video without Airdrop
by Patawaker on 2019/03/02 09:06
Airdrop does not work with a few of my computers. This app solves the problem for me. The interface is pleasing and intuitive and speed at which both photo and videos transfer. This app has skyrocketed to my loved app list. How exactly does it work, for example on a 2010 Mac Pro sending from an iPhone 6splus? First connect the phone and computer via Bluetooth. You download the app to both your phone and computer. Launch the app on your computer and on iPhone. The computer app will ask you to find device. Once it does you can do things such as upload files from your computer to phone, from phone to computer, delete files, etc. This app is useful since I do not use iCloud. I am glad to have it! Two thumbs up to the developers.
Great wireless photo transfer!
by RinaMamaSoph on 2017/10/28 19:01
I was able to transfer all the pics from my iPhone to my laptop, wirelessly, using this app! A few months back there were some glitches, and I emailed customer service. They responded very promptly, let me know that they would fix any bugs that were coming up, and really seemed to care about helping me. Issues I was having were resolved and the app works great! This is a very useful app and a great company!
Phenomenal App
by Phatpype on 2019/09/30 03:32
I have nearly 12,000 pictures synced between iPhone and computer. All categorized in folders on PC. Prior to using this app, it was a GIANT pain to download new photos from camera roll and onto computer. iPhone doesn’t do well with drag and drop folder operations. With this app however, it’s easy to put new photos in camera roll onto computer into appropriate folders. And the phone doesn’t need to be connected with cable to do it.
Just what I needed!
by AmeliaEtherose on 2019/03/11 14:02
Update: Customer service contacted me quickly and shared a solution (it’s in the app settings), and now it works better than I could have asked for. SO delighted with this app! Every time I attempt to transfer photos, they appear on my computer as HEIC and I can’t actually view them. I can’t find a way to change this in any of the settings. I’m hopeful for this app because I desperately need a solution for photo transfer!
Unreliable
by Red Coyote7 on 2018/05/07 21:39
I used this photo transfer tool for about a year to copy (sometimes large) photo files from my iPad Pro to my laptop with no problems until recently. Over the last several months, the process “stalls” during the transfer, then I get a message saying that I’ve lost connection with the internet even after verifying both devices clearly are connected to the internet and my wi-fi is working. I then have to reboot both devices and start over. What used to be a relatively smooth process has become cumbersome and frustrating. I’m now looking for an alternate method of transfer.
Big improvement!!!!
by Coastaldog on 2018/02/25 19:37
The revised app in conjunction with the computer app has made transferring photos back and forth a lot easier. Feb 2018....Found a minor bug. When done transferring photos from my iPhone to my computer and I’m backing out of Photo Transfer; when I get to the screen that has “send on Wi Fi” and touch the X, the SAME SCREEN BOUNCES RIGHT BACK UP. It didn’t do this prior to some recent updates. Developer needs to fix this bug.
It WORKS!!!!
by GWD4 on 2017/09/17 18:33
There is only one thing to say about this program: it works! It works well, It works easily, It works quickly, It works perfectly. I have tried many other apps, but this one is by far my choice. I'm happy enough to keep singing it's praises, but that adds nothing. Download it, upgrade to pro immediately to save hassle. If your time is worth only $0.10/hr, it'll be well worth it. An app that REALLY does what it says. Wow!
Outstanding App!
by Toptiger39 on 2019/05/11 15:30
Seldom do I write a review. But this time and this app are an exception! I have to say that it is seldom an app far exceeds my expectation. But, after many months of active use I have found Photo Transfer by Bitwise Software to be the best if you need to get your images/photos quickly and easily transferred from one device to the other. The app loads quickly, navigates easily, and transfers speedily. Give it a try!
Does what It Said It would
by the man with 3 first names on 2018/03/03 23:04
Love this app. I have another app that is meant to do the same thing, and I have a lightening to USB drive to transfer pictures & videos too. Of the 3 I choose this app because it works well and is fairly easy to use. Every now and then it crashes during a download, but it doesn’t stop me from choosing this over and over to transfer my media.
Finally found a solution to NOT using iCloud! And an easy way to delete photo’s!
by Toddler heaven on 2018/01/26 22:45
This app is great. I’ve struggled for years to find a way to download my folders as I organize photo’s on phone a bit and haven’t wanted to lose that when downloading. This app does it!! Plus if wanting to free space deleting photo’s is super easy from desktop app as opposed to iPhone which takes forever!
I never volunteer reviews
by Walter, BS on 2018/08/26 19:57
I have been using PTA for at least several years now. It has always been good but it continues to improve. It does a lot of things that I have never looked into but it does what I need consistently and reliably. I use it at least several times a week and sometimes more. I hope I never need to be without this one! This app is definitely worth breaking my pattern.
Works fine
by reconfig on 2019/07/08 18:10
I’ve had the app for years (I think that I have the paid version) and it works. It even keeps the time stamp set correctly after the transfer back to my iPhone. It would be nice to move pics over the connecting/charging wire. This would probably be faster than using either WIFI or Bluetooth.
Terrible
by Fmoszhjurcbnmxfoo on 2017/11/05 00:58
This app is honestly terrible, I tried to use it to see if it could help me with my portfolio review in 2 days yet I can’t even find more than 1 freaking file from my drive, are you kidding me? I saw the real reviews from real people, 6.99 to be able to do something simplistic is a waste and I’m not going to keep this app at all, even in my app download history. Why would I pay for a “full version” of the free one couldn’t show me more than 2 of my files? Don’t reply to this as I don’t want your garbage excuse and unrealistic response of “wanting” to assist me with messages of the issue to fix it, I’m done.
Buy it!
by Coös Ken on 2017/10/26 12:36
One of the most practical apps that I have bought. I have always had problems transferring photos from my IPad to my IMac. This app allows you to transfer any format with full resolution to the folder of your choice through your WiFi quickly with the option of deleting the IPad files. Worth every penny.
Works for Me
by pen_rick on 2018/01/26 20:10
I use the app to send photos from my iPhone to a PC for Photoshop Elements fine tuning of my images. Works well. You do have to have the app open on both devices and both have to be on the same wifi network. Also, I now need to select an option on the phone’s app which converts HEIC (iOS 11) to JPG format during the transfer.
Easy - great app, no need to carry a cable
by Expect perfection on 2018/09/03 02:23
I have been using this app for years. It does what it said. Transfer photos to from my other iOS products and Windows computers without a hitch. Only if the Windows side can find my iPhone faster, it now takes about 10 seconds to discover it. it maybe the WiFi issue.
Does what it was meant to do and does it well
by eltiomusical on 2019/09/07 23:23
I have been using Photo Transfer for several years now. I have found it to work very effectively and permits me to work with my IPhone and at the end of the day download my work flawlessly. I can highly recommend this app. It does what it was designed to do very well.
It works with no muss no fuss
by Humptybump on 2019/01/15 23:57
This app has really grown since I first used it! Today it totally saved my bacon. As others have found, transferring photos and video from an iOS device to a Windows PC has become a PITA. This app does it effortlessly! I love that it can handle HEIC conversion and can even transfer originals and edits of photos! Caveat: with 400 images at a time it can get buggered so it’s wise to use folders when downloading. Way back when: I wanted this app for transferring iPhone photos to iPad for viewing and editing and it works great. It also works for transferring to my PC without needing software on the computer. I've gone ahead and deleted all the other apps I had for these tasks. This one "just works"!
When it works....
by Jackfloss on 2018/03/29 22:35
The app is great when it works. However it doesn't always "recognize my device ". When that happens I turn it all off and restart. Sometimes that solves the problem and other times I just wait for a couple of hours before retrying
Simple
by NGTCPA on 2018/05/13 16:59
Works great but this is what it need. 1) the ability to skip a file that won’t download for some reason without having to start over. 2) the ability to download all files without having to break the up into slacker groups. I had 2500 picture and the most I could do was 400 at s time. It took quite a long time to finish bush.
Easy!!
by Ellehuny on 2017/09/19 19:27
I tried several apps and this is the only one I could get to work easily. You will need to download the software to your computer but after doing that it is so easy to make this thing work and transfer pictures from iPhone to computer.
The answer to your prayers
by ChrissySimsen on 2018/02/24 02:28
I have used this app for YEARS! Well as long as it’s been around! I have struggled so much with finding a FAST and EASY way to transfer my photos. I transfer 200 photos in less than a minute from my phone to my Mac. Seriously, I would be lost without this app.
Great transfer app
by Mike-mn on 2018/04/05 13:52
This app has been working great for me. Very in frequently it won’t be able to find my phone, all I do in that situation is turn off and then on again Bluetooth on my computer. Very infrequently needed. I wish it would transfer files created by other apps like voice recorder. Maybe future releases will have that capability.
Easiest Pic Transfer App There Is
by AMateToTalkTo on 2017/09/04 09:44
Love the simplicity of this app. Load on your cellphone, and your Pc or Mac, open the apps, and identify each, and you're good to go. Simple click and go to transfer your pics, videos, files, etc. If you're looking for a very, VERY good file transfer app, you've just found it
Awesome app!
by madjesters1 on 2019/09/28 18:58
bluetooth was annoying and I couldn’t send some images but this one did it perfectly ! Its so easy to send images from my computer to my phone and to my tablet. Only problem is that you cant send psd files somethings and only ten images at a time. No pdfs as far as im aware. Good app though.
Copies pics to my PC preserving edits
by TomChatt on 2017/09/05 00:36
I had been frustrated with other programs (e.g. Dropbox) that copied photos to my PC, but would lose any editing I had done on my iPhone. This app preserves all the edits, so that if I've gone to the trouble to crop/edit the pic on my phone, I don't lose my edits when copying to PC. That's just what I wanted.
Savior, transferring from Apple products to PC
by Kiln Time on 2018/10/05 03:18
I really wanted something to transfer photos from my IPAD and IPhone to my windows PC. Setup in a few minutes in all three devices. I bought the upgrade for 6.99, once. It was good for both Apple devices. Transferred quickly and easy.
The App works and the developers are great.
by Don't pause the horse on 2018/04/02 14:12
There are a number of photo transfer apps, but not only is this one of the best, but the developers are continually making improvements and are extremely responsive to user feedback. Very impressed with the app and the customer service provided!
Amazing App
by Drummerd99 on 2018/03/20 19:15
It just works! The images transfer seamlessly and quickly. As a professional photographer I don’t have time to wait for my images to transfer from my IPad to my IMac. This app does it quick and pain free. And my files are big - 42mp each. Get the app. You. Won’t. Be. Disappointed.
Exceptionally Useful App
by Brcal69 on 2017/10/26 19:30
If you use multiple cameras and store photos in several places, this will be one of your most useful apps. It allows you to quickly transfer large batches of photos between devices on a wide variety of platforms. I use it all the time.
Great app! Life saver for pc users with photo albums stuck on their iphones
by i1256 on 2018/09/24 20:37
Great app that transfers photo albums on iPhones to your pc device. Bridges the difficult gap between apple and pc life! Thankgoodness this app is amazing and great quality (original quality) kept for all the photos. It works. It actually works!!!💕 🎉
Better than iTunes by far!
by Kelvington98765 on 2019/01/09 21:05
This program works so well at home or at work, no wires needed. It sends and receives photos and videos easier than any thing out there. I hope in future they add music and ringtones. Then I’ll never need iTunes again.
It has potential
by Tambi Traveler on 2018/01/18 07:32
The concept for the app is great. However, the reliability of the actual file transfers is moderate. I often have errors or hangs during the transfer of large batches of files. When it happens the application has to be restarted since it can’t recover on its own. It would be great if the app also worked via a wired connection if it is more reliable.
Best Transfer Ever
by Tech Consultant on 2017/10/18 18:36
For transferring photos between phones, tablets, Computers and other devices this product beats all others hands down. It is self intuitive and easy to use. I needed customer support and they got back to me immediately with the solution. My best app purchase ever.
Very good app but.....👇🏽
by 1st-time reviewer on 2018/05/02 02:56
Okay... now the April 30th update of Windows 10 has screwed up my app... it won’t recognize my iPhone or iPad 😛 This is by far and a way the best way to transfer things between your computer and iOS devices, but it’s not working now. Is there a fix????🤔
