The copy function on Photo-Sort is quite easy, its not an internet connection thing. Start Photo-Sort it will give you an FTP URL which you just enter into your Windows Explorer address bar and you can them then copy. Its wifi but I will have to try connecting my iPhone cable to see if that will work via cable.


Any success? Hm, just tested nothing happens when I try to use Photo-Sort when having my iPod Touch connected via a cable and trying to transfer the photos. At least this works with the copytrans Photo application.

The Photo-Sort FTP transfer still seems a bit creepy - my photos are indeed hosted on their servers so that the transfer is made possible.

 I understand this is an FTP address which cannot be accessed publicly (if you don't know the address) however, just having my personal photos uploaded on some server doesn't seem very privacy-oriented for me =(.

I will stick to the copytrans photo for now.

The FTP address is the iPhone/iPod internal IP address, you can check that in your modems DHCP page. All you are doing on your PC, is entering the iDevices FTP address into the PC so the PC will connect to the iDevice, there is no cloud type offshore server involved
