Folks - is anybody using Photosync as their primary photo organization tool instead of Apple photos and what lead you to that choice? I'm talking about using it for everything - copying photos either using the lightning cable or wifi, browsing photos, etc

I use Photosync as a photo transfer tool, not an organisation tool.
Why use Photosync?
1) Because you don't want your photos to be synced via iCloud (or only via iCloud).
2) Because you don't want to use Photos app as your DAM (digital asset management) tool. E.g. you want to use Lightroom or just Finder.
3) Because you want to establish a robust backup for your photos which is easier to do once your photos are in Finder on your Mac.
4) Want easy transfer to Windows.
5) You want to use other cloud services.
1, 2 and 3 apply in my case.
