Let’s Get Ready To Rumble! Drop Snap VS. all Competitors!

Recently, good friends of Android Guys, Chris Soyars and Martin B. (chrissoyars and optedoblivion) released a handy app called Drop Snap.  The app automatically uploads images taken on your Android phone to your dropbox account with no muss and no fuss.  Take a picture and BAM, your photo uploads for safe keeping.  Kind of like an eyefi for your Android device.

We have loved the Drop Snap app, and how it makes uploading photos, well, a snap.  But how does it stack up against other similar competing apps, such as Sugar Sync or Drop In?  Another one of our good friends, Chris S. (wootroot) decided to create a video to illustrate how Drop Snap is head and shoulders above the rest.  Check out the video af ter the break, as well as our handy dandy download box so you can get Drop Snap for yourself!  NOTE:  The video shows as yet unreleased functionality to Drop Snap that is coming in the very near future.  Enjoy the preview!

Sony Ericsson Jumping on the NFC Train

NXP, the company that manufactured the NFC chip found in the Nexus S, has just announced their latest partner: Sony Ericsson. It’s surprising to me that SE didn’t announce this on their own, but that’s another story for another day. The big news here is that good ol’ Sony Ericsson has beaten several of the major manufacturers by using NFC chips in future Android devices.

Rumor: HTC Pyramid Coming to T-Mobile

It seems that every other cell phone provider in America is getting some 4.3″ HTC love expect for T-Mobile. Well that is about to change according to a rumor that was first published on Android And Me and also independently reported by TmoNews. It seems that a previously unnamed HTC phone is in the works for T-Mobile, and it is going to be big, literally. The rumor as it sits right now is that is it going to be a 4.3″ qHD display, with HSPA+ capabilities, and running the first Qualcomm dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz (MSM8x60).

    sugarsync has an option to automatically sync your photos so you don’t have to manually start the sync each time.

      as showed in the video. yet regardless of which option you choose, sugarsync was so slow that it was /still/ syncing photos well after the video was finished while dropsnap finished almost instantly.

    I like it but wow, it could eat up a lot of my Dropbox quota in no time. I’m looking for a feature that would upload automagically to my more generous PicasaWeb storage.

      not really… just prune the folder occasionally, it’d take quite a lot of pictures to fill up your dropbox quota.

    Picplz has a similar feature– not for every photo you take, but for every one you share via picplz.

      well yeah, but this was designed for people who want every one of them instantly uploaded, not to mention with the added features of this release it can sync much more than just your pictures folder

      not to mention, if i wanted to take the time to share the pic, I could just use the regualr dropbox app…….

        Fair enough. I was just observing that another app has a similar feature, not trying to impugn Drop Snap.
