    My iPhone's 32GB is quickly running out, as I discover new music. I do already downconvert it to 128kbps AAC, so what I would like to do is unload my Camera Roll somewhere.

    Now, I do know that flickr and Google+ and Dropbox can do this, but I store a lot of unnecessary crap in my Camera Roll, so what I'm wondering is if there's any way to continuously back up my Camera Roll in a mirrored state, i.e. the photos I delete from my Camera Roll would also be deleted from the cloud service?

    I'm thinking it might be possible with IFTTT maybe?

    IFTTT has a trigger to upload all new photos from Camera Roll to, say, Google Drive. But it can't delete them from Google Drive automatically (as in a trigger "every photo deleted from Camera Roll, delete from Google Drive").

    A little workaround I do (so I don't have EVERY photo uploaded to my Google Drive) is to have the trigger: "every photo added to Album 'Keep' upload to Google Drive." This way only the photos that I think are truly worth keeping get uploaded. Then I periodically clean out my entire Camera Roll, knowing all my "keeps" are backed up.

    I hope IFTTT adds support for Mega soon, as then an additional 50GB of free "cloud" storage would available! :D

    If you don't already know about it, box is currently offering 50 GB for free with each newly registered free account.
