    What is everyone using?

    I'm looking for an app that'll automatically back-up photos & videos I take.
    Whether it's OneDrive, Flickr, SugarSync, Google Drive... etc

    iCloud Photo Backup isn't what I thought it was going to be. I thought iCloud Drive would store the photos to alleviate space on my device, but I was wrong.

    I use Dropbox to automatically backup all photos and videos. Then I take a copy of each and store it in a separate location on my MBA (I'm unreasonably paranoid about losing all of my Dropbox content). Then I sync them back to my iPhone albums. I also take an external disk backup of my MBA, although I don't quite manage best practice by keeping it in another location separate from my MBA.

    Dropbox is for me the most seamless solution, but I don't rely on it always being there.

    I thought Dropbox had more than just 1 pricing option. Assuming you pay the $10 bucks a month, do you find it worth it?

    I also use Dropbox for my photos. Once I am infront of my computer, I download them to iPhoto.

    I have a rather large amount of storage that I have worked up (all free) so I don't really worry about storage limits for my devices.

    I use the free option. With the various bonus space gifts they've given out over time I have 7.4 GB, which is sufficient for my most important files and photos.

    I use a OneDrive account and the iOS app. 30GB free.

    Bad part: It changes the names of the photos for some reason.

    About a month ago I abandoned DropBox and PhotoStream and went all in with OneDrive and it's 40gigs of free storage. I moved my whole 15gig photos folder to OneDrive. Turn on iOS background photo sync in OneDrive and you're all set.

    OneDrive for sure. Dropbox...yes...I'm almost positive.
