Microsoft lets iOS App transfer photos to PC

Microsoft's new photos app for iOS and Android lets you quickly transfer pictures to a PC

"This would enable students to transfer media to their own computers ... or to a shared, project PC ... without worrying about network speeds or mobile data charges".

It is important to note here that while the new Microsoft app provides you a way to move your memories from mobile devices to a Windows 10 PC, it is not really worthy if you already have the option to back up your photos and videos to a cloud service, such as Google Drive, iCloud, or even Microsoft's OneDrive.

Download the Photos Companion app on your iOS device from App Store, or for your Android device via Google Play Store. Click "Import" then "From mobile over Wi-Fi", which then presents a QR that the user scans, finally select the photos or videos for transfer and voila!

The app is developed as a part of the Microsoft Garage project. Announced under the Microsoft Garage program, the app links with the Photos app on a Windows 10 PC to make the transfer possible. Anyway, Windows Insiders who keep their Windows phones on the Fast Ring should continue to get early access to app updates, and we'll continue to keep an eye on the OS this year.

Do not you will have to be connected via same WiFi network on your smartphone and Windows 10 device. There you will find a preview option at the end - "Help Microsoft Test the mobile import over WiFI feature". Plus, it eliminates the requirement of using the same Wi-Fi network on the mobile device and PC to transfer content that is mandatory with the Photos Companion app. Being all wireless, the photo-sharing app frees users from the hassles of connecting USB cable. So, for some users, the app might not be their cup of tea.

The photo-transfer app, dubbed Photos Companion, is purely for sending photos and videos from an Android or iOS device to Microsoft's built-in Photos app on Windows 10.
