bought an iphone for my dad who can't use windows or android.

he can use an iphone but i doubt he knows how to transfer photos to anything ...

forgetting USB to SD card etc ...

is there an app that can take the photos AND videos and store in in cloud EVEN after he deletes it on the phone to free up space?

it doesn't matter if it resizes to a smaller file but it needs to be free and have pretty much unlimited space

sorry it's very early hopefully it makes sense what i'm trying to achieve

thanks

PS failing that i could dropbox his files download them convert them and post it back to him somewhere on the internet i guess

Dropbox does not work like that I use it now and delete files on my phone and they remain in dropbox

So you want free and unlimited you really need to get your head out of the clouds (not a personal attack) but storage is not free

I was under the impression dropbox would do this for you, everytime I've installed the app it nags to auto upload photos

Note that you can connect the iPhone to the laptop, open Windows Explorer and copy the photos over as the camera roll will show up. Maybe a step by step note he can keep handy?

+1 for Flickr

Hard to beat 1TB of free storage - with full quality/res uploads : )

We have been using it for several months now and it works pretty well with our android devices + FlickrUP as a free third-party auto uploader.

(Note: I believe the iOS Flickr App has an auto uploader built in. I would suggest you will want to have it set up so it only uploads on wifi.)

You may also want to set up his Flickr account to stop sharing etc as the default position is sharing - which is no surprise given that it's designed a photo sharing site, as opposed to a storage site...
