The app is very easy to work with. It is just a single screen app. So, there’s no hassle of jumping between different screens and getting confused. I liked the fact that the app provides instructions at the initial point, when you launch this Windows 8 bulk photo uploader for Facebook app.
Although I got a bit confused at the second time photo uploading. Because uploading photo for the first time using the app is straight simple and easy. All you have to do is login with Facebook credentials, and choose a folder to upload it’s contents, and click on Start Upload; the app does the rest. But when I tried uploading second time, it was bit confusing, because it’s no-where mentioned in the instructions that you have to right click in the photo uploading screen, and click on change folder to select another folder from your system, and then press on Start Upload. This needs to be mentioned in the instructions.
But once you know the steps, the app becomes fast and easy. Now, for every next upload; all you have to do is: right click on the photo uploading screen, click on Change folder button, select the desired folder from your system, and finally click on Start Upload button, present at the center of the photo uploading screen. That’s all! but before any uploading, you need to login with Facebook credentials. In order to login, simply click on the Login button at far top right corner in the first screen that you’ll be with, after launching the app for the first time.
Also, in order to upload photos in another Facebook account. Simply click on SignOut button in the aforementioned flyout. Doing so, the app takes you back to the very first screen mentioned above.
I liked the sync that this Windows 8 bulk photo uploader makes with Facebook. Just after few seconds, the moment you upload photos from the app, the photos appears in Smart_apps Photos album in your Facebook account. All though you can’t add photos in a specific folder in Facebook. This can be a big limitation of the app. So, as an advice, get all the desired photos in a folder first and finalize it, and then upload the folder.
