Photos Companion user reviews :

Works absolutely fine! I don’t know why people are saying it doesn’t work or that all photos are automatically chosen. Careful: use the Photos app on the pc, not any photo file. Only thing I wish it had was to transfer also from PC to mobile. And a little bit faster loading of the avatars or the ability to chose specific albums to work with and not the whole gallery of the phone.

Works perfect. For anyone saying it doesn’t work your not doing it right. It simple. 1) connect phone and computer to the same wifi. 2) open photos app, go to photos app settings, scroll down and turn on “show additional preview features”, back out of settings 3) click on import choose “from mobile over wifi”. 4) open Photos Companion, scan the QR code on your computer screen, choose which photos you want to transfer, tap done and they transfer. It’s that easy and works perfect. The import from mobile over wifi only shows if you turn the show additional preview features setting on.

I really like this idea. But for the first time use, I selected few photos, and many other photos are automatically selected by random patterns and unable to send my selected photos without other photos selected automatically. So I haven’t tried further and uninstalled the app. Please fix this app and I like this idea to copy photos to my PC. Give an option to select folders.

I hate transferring my photos through Bluetooth or USB cable. With this app, I can easily transfer my photos to my Windows 10 laptop quickly and hassle-free.
