I can't tell you how many times I have been at work and wanted to get a photo I had saved on my iMac at home. How I have handled it until now is through LogMein. I love the app and how it lets me access my desktop from away, but here is a free option that will let you scoop photos from your desktop/laptop iPhoto library and put them right onto your iPad. The app is called Cinq. The app is free and all you need to do is register with them, download a free app to your desktop/laptop and be on wifi. What happens then is almost magical. Simply open the Cinq app on your iPad, log into your account and before you can say holy toledo, you will be looking at your iPhoto library. Choose a photo and tap the share folder icon at the bottom right and you can share it on Facebook, Twitter, email it, print it or save it to your photos app.
But that's not all. Load the app onto your iPhone and have the photos you take, load directly to your iPhoto library on your home computer and then be available on your iPad.....all through the web.
If you connect to your Facebook account, you can see all of your friends' photos and save them to your iPad as well. Don't worry, your friends have to be sharing photos for you to be able to access them.
This is a no brainer for me.....and if you are like me....just download it.
