Review FotoSwipe

Tariq Abdulla
9.0Excellent
Feels like magic, functions quickly, completely free, no ads
Clunky design
FotoSwipe for Android is an app that lets you magically swipe your photos between devices, without any of the faff of SD cards, email, Dropbox or instant messaging that would normally be involved.
It feels like magic. Of course it isn't really, but you have to take a moment to think about how it is working, because this doesn't need any bluetooth or anything. What the app is really doing is figuring your location, and the time that you swipe off one device, and on to another, and then sending it via satellites and servers to cross the tiny gap between the two phones. There aren't enough people around using it for there to be a risk of photos going to the wrong person. But if it freaks you out, it's possible to encrypt your photos with a 4 digit code.
You can send multiple photos in one go, but I don't think you can send videos. You can view photos fullscreen to check which ones are nice before sending them.
Fotoswipe not the kind of thing you'll use when out and about with friends, as both devices need to have it installed, and be connected to the internet. I'd be more likely to use it for sharing some select photos with my partner at home. It works perfectly Android to Android as well as Android to iOS.
FotoSwipe is fun to use, and has a huge wow factor that makes you want to show everyone. Although the interface could do with some finishing touches. They don't come much more original than this.
