Is there any way to do these without plugging the iphone into the PC.

1) Copy photos AND videos from iphone to PC.
2) Copy music from iPhone to another iphone.
3) Copy music from PC to iPhone

I have a app called Local Cloud Pro - so that's a start, but I think it only allows (3)

Thanks.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

For photos try the Photosync app.

For music you may want to look into iTunes Match, but it's not necessarily suitable for everyone because it incurs an annual fee, disables the ability to sync music with iTunes, and it has some syncing problems under certain conditions.

Bittorrent Sync should do all of that and is free.

Apple uses AirDrop (similar to Wifi-Direct) to transfer files between devices. Its requires IOS 7 and I think Lion (on macs).

AirDrop is in the notification centre and works on iPhone 4S and newer, not sure about iPod touch etc

I guess i was a bit ignorant

I find local cloud the easiest to use, but perhaps bittorrent sync is more powerful i haven't figured out how to bypass the 40 character code ... What the?

My issue is there is no way to transfer music wirelessly!

Might have to take out the darn cable ...

There are tons of Apps that do this. AirSharing, iFiles, Docs To Go, QuickOffice, and FileMagic. All use WiFi and many you can drag and Drop entire file folders.

You do not have to JB or use SSH to use any of these Apps and they are all in the iPhone App Store.
