PhotoSync is a free Android app to wirelessly transfer photos, videos from Android phone to PC and PC to Android phone. The app lets you bulk transfer all media files. The app has a clean interface which lets you easily navigate through app, look for desired photo/video, search for particular album, etc..
The most important feature of the app is that it remembers all the photos and videos shared by you. It means that when you will sync any folder again, then this app transfers only those files which have been added recently, instead of transferring all the files of the folder. This feature speeds up the transferring process and also saves you from going through multiple copies of the same file and then deleting them.
Other notable features of the app are: it preserves original metadata of photos, maintains photo quality and doesn’t compress it. According to app description, all the transfer of files take place on your local Wi-Fi network, instead of internet, to maintain your safety and privacy.
Note: The app also has a iOS version (Paid) which lets you transfer files between Mac and iOS device, and iOS to Android device.
