How to Transfer Digital Photos from the iPhone to the iPad

More Apple help!

You may remember a video I recorded a few months ago to talk about the Bump app for the iPhone. You could use it to bump two phones together and share contact information. Now, I can use Bump on my iPad in order to quickly and easily transfer photos from my phone(s) to my iPad. (Gorgeous, well-behaved dogs NOT included.)

After taking the photos, I just had to launch the Bump application on my iPhone. I chose the photo I wanted and then bumped the phone onto the iPad. The iPad asked me whether or not I wanted to accept the picture. It was saved to the pictures folder. I can do the same thing through the Android version of the app, as well.

The Android app has a couple of features that the iPhone and iPad versions do not. You can use your Android device to send and receive apps, instead of just photos or contact information.

It only takes a few seconds to transfer the photos between devices. Accept no substitutions. It’s easy-peasy… and free. If you don’t already have Bump, I suggest getting it.

What FTP Client do you Use?

Nat from Nat.tv called in during the live call portion of our show tonight. It was fun to just chit chat for once. The next caller wondered what type of FTP clients are good.

Pretty much the only recommendation I have for Windows is WinSCP. It’s free, it’s fast and it works great. It uses the same client as FileZilla. To me, FileZilla is actually ugly, and I don’t much like it. However, using WinSCP is just nice.

WinSCP is an open source SFTP client and FTP client for Windows. Its main function is the secure file transfer between a local and a remote computer. Beyond this, WinSCP offers basic file manager functionality. It uses Secure Shell (SSH) and supports, in addition to Secure FTP, also legacy SCP protocol. Its main function is safe copying of files between a local and a remote computer.

Features include:

  • Graphical user interface
  • Translated into several languages
  • Integration with Windows (drag&drop, URL, shortcut icons)
  • U3 support
  • All common operations with files
  • Support for SFTP and SCP protocols over SSH-1 and SSH-2 and plain old FTP protocol
  • Batch file scripting and command-line interface
  • Directory synchronization in several semi or fully automatic ways
  • Integrated text editor
  • Support for SSH password, keyboard-interactive, public key and Kerberos (GSS) authentication
  • Integrates with Pageant (PuTTY authentication agent) for full support of public key authentication with SSH
  • Windows Explorer-like and Norton Commander-like interfaces
  • Optionally stores session information
  • Optionally supports standalone operation using a configuration file in place of registry entries, suitable for operation from removable media

For a Mac, there really isn’t an “excellent” FTP client as of yet. But if you’re running Windows at all… it’s WinSCP FTW!
