5 Best Cloud Storage Android App for Photo and Video Backup

The cloud is no longer the somewhat empty buzzword it used to be during its infancy. Cloud is now used as the backbone of large corporations, state governments, and digital lives of individual users, who use it to store data, manage their finance, and do countless other useful things.

Among them is also the option to use cloud storage as a reliable and simple way how to backup photos and videos from your Android device. All you need is a cloud storage Android app and a user account with the particular cloud storage provider. While there are many cloud storage apps out there, these 5 stand out as the best cloud storage apps for Android for photo and video backup.

Why You Should Store Your Photos and Video in the Cloud

If you are still backing up your photos and videos the old fashion way – by connecting your device via USB to your computer and manually transferring the files – you are placing yourself at risk of data loss. You never know when your memory card or built-in storage space might become corrupted, and when it happens, it’s often too late to do anything about it.

Not only that, but having to sit in front of a computer and manually transfer the pictures and videos you want to backup takes a lot of time. Modern cloud storage Android apps for photo and video backup can do a much better job much quicker. Here are just some of their main advantages:

  • Simplicity: using cloud storage apps for photo and video backup usually requires just two steps: first you need to create an account with the provider, and then you need to activate the cloud backup feature. From there, the app will automatically monitor your device and look for any new pictures and videos. It will then upload them to the cloud, which can happen either only when you are on Wi-Fi or whenever you have any internet connection at all, depending on your configuration.
  • Reliability: storing your photos and videos in the cloud is much safer than just keeping them on your hard disk or, even worse, not backing them up at all. Cloud storage providers, such as Amazon, Flickr, and Dropbox, have huge data centers with extremely reliable data loss protection measures in place. Chances that you lose your data from the cloud are very close to zero.
  • Security: thousands of new types of malware are released every single day. You as an end user can only hope that your antivirus will be updated quickly enough to keep you secure. Cloud storage providers, on the other hand, have entire teams of security professionals dedicated to keeping your files secure.
  • Sharing: with your files stored in the cloud, you can share them with your friends and family members with a single mouse click or tap on the screen. Compare this to the standard way of opening your email, searching for the photo on your hard disk, selecting it, and, finally, sending the email with the photo included as an attachment.
  • Convenience: by having your photos and videos in the cloud, you can access them from any place with an internet connection. You will never say, “I wish I had taken it with me,” ever again.

1) Amazon Cloud Drive

The Amazon Cloud Drive app is a gateway into Amazon Drive, an unlimited secure storage from Amazon that costs just $11.99 per year and additionally includes 5 GB for videos and files. If that doesn’t sound like a good enough deal, you can choose the “Unlimited Everything” plan for $59.99 per year.  The best part about Amazon Cloud Drive is that Amazon Prime members get unlimited storage for photos!

The app itself is very intuitive, allowing you to preview photos, documents, spreadsheets and presentations; play videos and music stored on Amazon Drive; upload photos, videos and files from your smartphone, create and edit text files; or share your files as links and attachments through email, text message and other apps, according to the official description on the Play Store.

It has so far earned a rating of 4.4 stars from more than 10,000 users who have left their feedback. Users praise how effortless it is to use the app and how it doesn’t get in their way when they use their devices for other purposes.

flickr

2) Flickr

Flickr is loved by photographers from all around the world, and their Android app and 1000 GB cloud storage solution make a very compelling argument as to why anyone with a smartphone camera should consider giving their services a try.

To use it, you will need to have a Yahoo account, which you can create for free by clicking on this link. With your newly created account, you can download the app and activate the automatic cloud backup feature. What’s great about the Flickr app is that it goes beyond a simple photo and video storage. The app lets you organize your pictures based on various criteria, tweak how they look by adding creative filters, and it also gives you access to Flickr’s huge community of enthusiastic users, who are always happy to answer any questions.

dropbox

3) Dropbox

Dropbox is often considered to be the pioneer of personal cloud backup services. Their mature solution is available on all major platforms and supported by countless third-party applications and web services. Its biggest limitation is that it comes with just 2 GB of free storage space. You can get more space by inviting others to use the service or by taking advantage of various promotional deals, but it’s safe to say that you will inevitably run out of storage space, which may never happen with Amazon or Flickr.

But aside from the space, the app itself is a pleasure to use. The user interface is polished, photos and videos are automatically backed up as soon as they are saved on your device, and you can even edit Microsoft Office files from your phone or tablet.

files-anywhere

4) Google Drive

Google and their vast range of cloud services probably don’t require any introduction. Google Drive is their online storage service, which gives users 15 GB of free space and allows them to purchase extra 100 GB for $1.99 per month or 1 TB for $9.99 a month.

Just like other cloud storage apps on this list, Google Drive safely stores your photos and videos in the cloud, allowing you to access them from anywhere. The app is tightly integrated with Google Docs, Google’s suite of office apps, and has a very handy feature for turning paper documents into digital scans using your device camera.

onedrive-1

5) Microsoft OneDrive

To compete with Google and other big players in the cloud hosting game, Microsoft has come up with an excellent online storage solution, called OneDrive, with 5 GB of free space and 1 TB of storage for customers who purchase their OneDrive + Office 365 plans, which start at $6.99/month.

The OneDrive app helps users be more productive by giving them an easy access to Office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Employees can sign in to OneDrive for Business and continue working even while on the go. Important files can be accessed even when offline, and, unless the feature is turned off, all pictures are automatically tagged with appropriate information for effortless organization.

Conclusion

If you are unsure which app is right for you, consider whether you are already using any other products from the company behind it. Gmail users can easily try out Google Drive, people shopping on Amazon and reading on the Kindle have already one foot in Amazon’s ecosystem, and just about everyone nowadays has an account with Microsoft.

But don’t think that you need to limit yourself to a single app, either. Unlike with antivirus software, two or more cloud backup apps can happily live next to one another without causing any issues. So don’t be afraid to experiment to see which app suits you the most. After all, you can always uninstall it.

Over 70 million Dropbox account log-ins were stolen back in 2012

Dropbox

Remember the 2012 hack which was believed to have compromised a few #Dropbox accounts? Well, it seems like the hacker managed to get his hands on nearly 70 million account log-ins back then, putting several customers in a state of worry. However, you’re safe if you have changed your password since then. If not, we recommend you do so right away.

A senior level Dropbox employee managed to confirm this, but decided to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. Further, a Microsoft staffer has already mentioned that he found his and his wife’s account credentials in the leak, so regardless of what you hear out there, the leak was pretty real. The solution, as we mentioned above, is pretty simple.

The problem appears to be with about half of the compromised accounts which use an older encryption system called SHA-1, while about 32 million of them were encrypted with bcrypt, which is considered to be among the best going around. Dropbox has started sending out password reset notifications to people since last week.

Dropbox 3.0 comes with a Material Design makeover

Dropbox Update

Dropbox Update

The Dropbox app on Android has just received an update which introduces a handful of Material Design changes. It also comes with a new search bar that is visible at all times on the app, but nothing much apart from that.

The app has received multiple UI updates in the past, but this is quite significant as Dropbox tells us in a new video. In the midst of Google Drive, OneDrive, Box and several other cross platform cloud storage services, Dropbox has managed to remain relevant in the industry thanks to its vast number of users.

And the addition of features like these go a long way in striking a chord with the existing users. There are several tiers of storage services offered by Dropbox, including the widely popular Dropbox Pro which is available for $9.99 per month or at a one time payment of $99.99.

The update should be live on the Google Play Store anytime soon, so make sure you’re on the lookout for the all new Dropbox.

Update to the Dropbox app finally lets you export files to the SD card

Dropbox Update

Dropbox Update

Dropbox for Android is getting a new update today which introduces support for exporting files directly to the smartphone or tablet’s SD card in addition to the internal storage. This will give users the versatility of adding files wherever they please rather than having to worry about the internal storage filling up. These features are packed into the update (version 2.4.5) and should already be live on the Google Play Store.

Exporting files to the SD card will require users to individually select files and there’s no multi-select option, which can be a little time consuming. The update also brings increased support for Android L and better file searching within the app. It’s quite a major update considering what it brings to the table. Make sure you download the updated version of Dropbox right away to make full use of this new change. The developers have kept the UI unchanged, so don’t expect any other changes on board.

Buyers of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will get 50GB of Dropbox storage for free

Galaxy Note 4 - White

Galaxy Note 4 - White

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 going official earlier today, Dropbox has just announced that it will be offering 50GB of free cloud storage to buyers of the smartphone. This will be valid for a period of 2 years from the date of purchase. So if you’ve been impressed with the hardware offered by the Galaxy Note 4, this is an added incentive to get the phablet. The Galaxy Note 4 will also come preinstalled with all of Dropbox’s apps.

Dropbox is giving the likes of Google Drive, OneDrive and iCloud a run for their money by being one of the most popular cloud storage services in the world. And a deal of this magnitude with Samsung should increase user adoption drastically for Dropbox. HTC offers free cloud storage from Google Drive for customers of its smartphones, so there’s no reason why Samsung shouldn’t team up with Dropbox to offer something similar.

For those unaware, the Galaxy Note 4 is packing a 5.7 inch QHD resolution display, a 16-megapixel OIS camera, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Android 4.4.4 KitKat and a 3,220 mAh battery. The smartphone is expected to be sold through Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile starting October.

Dropbox for Android updated with document previews and much more

Dropbox Update

Dropbox Update

One of the most popular cloud storage apps, Dropbox, is now getting an update to its Android version bringing along some key new features. One of the most notable additions is the ability to view documents right within the app, rather than having to navigate to a different app or PDF reader. This will save a lot of time for the users, thus proving to be more convenient for document reading on the go.

Searching has been improved as well with the ability to search within individual folders. With search getting smarter, users can now type out a file name and the app will predict what they’re looking for and provide precise results. Lastly, app users can now set shared folders as view-only, which is a privilege previously enjoyed by Business subscribers of Dropbox. So there’s quite a lot with this update to be excited about, so make sure you’re on the lookout for an update if you use the app. If not, make sure you hit the link below to give it a go.

Dropbox brings Mailbox app for Android

Mailbox Android

Mailbox Android

Popular iOS email client Mailbox will now make its way to Android via the Play Store. The app which was an exclusive to iOS since its launch is now expanding to other platforms thanks to Dropbox which acquired the app last year.

This is your standard run of the mill mail client really and is unlikely to replace Gmail for Android, but it’s certainly worth a try since good email apps aren’t exactly available in abundance. The app is yet to arrive in the Play Store since it has only been announced, but we expect to see it in the coming days.

Dropbox has also announced a desktop client for Mailbox, but in a closed Beta as some of the features of the service are non-functional at the moment. It’s good to see an app which was confined to one mobile platform now making its way to other rival platforms as well as desktops. While Mailbox will not convert loyal Gmail users, it will definitely serve as a decent alternative to Android users.

Update: The app has finally made its way to the Play Store and can be downloaded for free.

New Chromecast app allows streaming from Dropbox

chromecast

chromecast

The Chromecast SDK is still in beta, leaving app developers sitting on their app, incapable of getting it onto the Chromecast or Google Play store. For developers to get apps onto the store, they need to contact Google, who may or may not allow it.

Koushik Datta has created another application from Chromecast, after previously showing a way to play local files from a mobile/tablet device onto the TV. This time, the app allows the user to share via Dropbox, something that could be implemented by the Dropbox team.

Essentially this is just another sharing option, the user goes onto the Dropbox file, presses the share button and then it will go onto the TV. It has a little bit of lag, around five to fifteen seconds on the demo by Datta, but an official app should work smoothly.

Dropbox works across almost every platform and users can take videos from the laptop or desktop, save them in Dropbox and then play them on the TV. This could be a simple workaround, since Chromecast currently does not have support for local media players, like Quicktime and VLC.

We are seeing lots more support from application developers, including Pandora, Vimeo, HBO Go and Hulu all pledging to work on a Chromecast button, for most of their platforms. We believe Amazon Prime, Spotify and local media could be next on the list.

Android vs iOS Part II: The Cloud

If you are on the fence about an Apple iPhone or an Android phone, and have read the first part of the Android vs iOS series, you are probably no closer to making a decision. There I discussed that despite the convergence in the elements of the user interface of the iOS operating system found in Apple’s iPhone, and Google Android smartphones, underneath the skin, the two are rather different. One is a smartphone, the other a computer trapped in a mobile phone. I know what you are thinking: “That’s all he wanted to say. The freaking author wasted my time.”

The long introduction will become more relevant as we go further along this series of articles. Like any serious decision, it should be made slowly and patiently, but for maybe about 5% of the readers of this article, your decision will be made today. I said Android was a full-fledged computer. It is time to put my money where my mouth is. For brevity, I will just look at three notable examples.

Dropsync

Android vs iOs: The Cloud

The Cloud is a beautiful thing. All our files are within reach wherever we go. The typical productive basic use of the Cloud goes something like this: Late at night, and you are finishing a long report on your laptop. You are tired, so you save the document without a good proof reading. Your computer uploads the latest version of your document to a server from your Cloud service provider.

The next morning after breakfast, you commute to work. On the way there, you carefully review your report making some edits along the way. When you open the file from your Cloud service, your phone has downloaded the file and opened it on a word processor on your phone. When you save the file, the word processor saves your changes and uploads the document back to the Cloud, which in turn updates the copy of the document found in your computer at home. Having discussed the contents of the report with your boss, you turn on your office desktop, and after it boots, the latest version of the document you are working on is downloaded into your office desktop, and you finalize the report.

In this Cloud based system, all your files are hosted on your home computer, office computer and a server. Your smartphone is a bit player downloading and uploading files as needed.
If your phone is an Android, that need not be the case. Apps like DropSync will allow you to perform real time synchronization of all your files on an Android phone. As files are edited or added on your laptop or desktop, the updated and new files will also be downloaded to your Android phone. Can the iOS operating system on an iPhone do this? Probably, but since Apple does not allow it, then the simple fact is that at present, iOS devices cannot.

If this type of functionality is important for you, then your decision has been made.

Torrent

Real time two-way Cloud sync is not the only aspect which makes Android more PC-like than iOS. I would think a lot of users do not spend a lot of time preparing documents, spreadsheets or presentations. However, these users still keep a personal computer around for other purposes, like downloading file over the Torrent network.

Now, Torrents have gotten a bad name, mainly because a lot of pirated material is exchanged via Torrent. But there is a lot of legitimate material exchange over the Torrent network. If you are a Torrent freak, and have a hefty data plan, you can carry on your activities on an Android device with apps like uTorrent or tTorrent, and may find less and less use for you laptop or desktop.

Apple does not allow this kind of activity on its iOS devices. You would have to jailbreak an iPhone in order to download Torrents.

Tasker
Android

Maybe the most extreme example of how Android really is a powerful operating system is Tasker. Tasker allows you to automate almost all of your smartphones functionality, making an Android smartphone really live up to its name. Tasker allows Android to execute command based on certain triggers like time, location, handset orientation, connected hardware among others.

Tasker can be configured so that your Android phone will automatically take certain actions on your behalf. When you leave your house in the morning, your phone detects that it has left home and disables WiFi conserving battery power that is otherwise wasted when it is left on scanning for WiFi networks. While driving to the office, your phone detects you are moving, and Tasker sends out SMS replies to all SMS and missed calls saying, “Sorry, I am driving, I will get back to you later”. As part of your daily habit, you stop by a coffee shop for a cup of Joe. Tasker powers on WiFi and launches Flipboard, which you browse when you take you morning coffee. Later in the office, you attend a meeting and place your phone on the table face down. This alerts Tasker to send out SMS replies to all SMS and missed calls saying, “Sorry, I am at a meeting. I will get back to you later”. This kind of user-customized automation cannot be achieved on iOS, even if you jailbreak it.

For some of you, one of these is a must have, and your decision is made. I would think the vast majority, would say, “But I just want a smartphone.” With the uber power users now in our wake, we will look at more mundane tasks in Part III of the Android vs iOS series.

Dropbox Partners With New Yahoo Mail For Attachments Of Any Size

One of the limitations of Yahoo Mail is that attachments are only limited to 25 MB. This means that if you’re going to send a huge file you either have to cut it into parts or just use another email service altogether that allows for sending of huge files. This is about to change as Dropbox and Yahoo have partnered to allow users to send attachments without any limits.

ymail dropbox

The partnership allows users to easily send and receive large attachments using Yahoo Mail. Once you try to send a file that’s over 25 MB in size it will automatically be shared through a Dropbox link rather than attached as a file on the email. If you already have a Dropbox account then you can start right away otherwise you still have to create one, which by the way is easy to do.

The integration with Dropbox starts rolling out today and is available for Yahoo Mail for Web in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

David McDowell, Senior Director of Product Management on Yahoo! Mail, had this to say on the partnership “Starting today, Dropbox is available within Yahoo! Mail. This integration allows you to share and store files more easily, whether they are vacation photos or important documents like tax returns and research papers. And, because files can be stored in your Dropbox account online, it’s easy to find the files you want even when you are away from your desktop. Dropbox is available within Yahoo! Mail for the Web in English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. For those of you new to Dropbox, you can quickly create an account from within Yahoo! Mail.”

Yahoo Mail is currently the third largest email provider in the world just behind Gmail and Hotmail. They however hold the number one spot in the United States.

Future Samsung Devices To Come With Free Dropbox Storage

Dropbox

Dropbox is an outstanding cloud-based application. The service keeps your files synced across all of your difference devices. Not only that, but Dropbox serves well as a backup service too. Samsung liked what the company was doing and began integrating the software when they released the widely popular Samsung Galaxy S III and gave users a free 50GBs to start out with.

Just yesterday Dropbox announced a stronger partnership with the Korean tech giant by adding Dropbox integration into future Samsung devices. Not just smartphones, but smart cameras and computers too. Dropbox said that this integration will begin two months from now in March 2013. This makes me very curious as to how this will tie in with Samsung’s announcements at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. There’s no doubt that Samsung would leave out the mention of their stronger partnership with Dropbox.

I’m speculating here, but SwiftKey recently announced via email that they are “working with some really big companies to bring the power of SwiftKey to new device owners, straight out of the box.” Since Samsung has a strong partnership with Dropbox, it would not be a far-fetched idea if Samsung is or will be partnering with SwiftKey. It would make sense, as Samsung’s own predictive keyboard is not nearly as good as SwiftKey’s.

If you’re a Dropbox user and a Samsung-lover, now might be the time to think about what Samsung device you’ll be getting next! Who doesn’t love complimentary Dropbox storage space?!

 

Dropbox to be embedded on new Samsung GALAXY Grand and Samsung SMART CAMERAs

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – January 7, 2013 – Dropbox, a free service that lets you bring your documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily, today announced a deep integration with several new Samsung devices, including the upcoming Samsung GALAXY Grand smartphone and SMART CAMERAs .

This marks the next step in the partnership between Dropbox and Samsung, which began in 2012 with Dropbox integrations on the Samsung devices, including Samsung GALAXY S III, Samsung GALAXY Note II, and Samsung GALAXY Camera.

“Dropbox and Samsung share a common goal when it comes to connectivity across devices. We believe that the things that matter most to people should be accessible at all times,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox. “Extending our successful relationship with Samsung from mobile phones to cameras gives users more opportunities to access and share photos, videos and documents, regardless of what device they are on.”

Beginning in March 2013, Dropbox will also be integrated on Samsung PCs and a number of Samsung SMART CAMERAs being released throughout 2013.

The GALAXY Note II was the first Samsung device to launch with Dropbox deeply integrated in the photo and video gallery. Every photo or video users take on their Samsung device will be automatically uploaded to their Dropbox folder. This eliminates the need to hook up cables or remove SD cards to transfer photos to a PC, making it even easier to access and share content across devices and furthering Dropbox’s mission of simplifying people’s lives.

Dropbox For Windows 8 Now Available

The Dropbox app for Windows 8 is finally available for download over at the Windows Store. This app was submitted to Microsoft last month for review and is now fully certified to run on Windows 8 and Windows RT. If you’ve been holding off upgrading your current operating system due to lack of Dropbox support on Windows 8 then now is the time to do so.

dropbox windows 8

The app now adopts the familiar tiled user interface and comes with Facebook sharing as well. Some of its key features include.

  • Browse and preview all of your files and photos on Dropbox
  • Open, edit and save files from other Windows 8 apps
  • Share any photo, file or folder with the Share Charm
  • Find your files with the Search Charm

The company has recently reached the 100 millionth user milestone and has announced that they will be opening their first office outside of the U.S. which will be located in Ireland.

Those familiar with cloud storage solutions will definitely be familiar with Dropbox. This service allows you to upload files to the company servers (cloud) and access them through any device as long as it is connected to the Internet.

There are various accounts to choose from starting with Free, Pro and Business. Regular users prefer to use the free account which gives 2 GB of free storage and can go all the way up to 18 GB which you can increase by getting referrals (500 MB space increase per referral).

Those looking for a much larger storage space might prefer to go for the paid Pro account where you have the option to choose from 100 GB, 200 GB and 500 GB of online storage space. Pricing for this starts at $9.99 per month.

Businesses on the other hand can choose the Business plan which not only provides an online storage solution but a way for you to share files easily with your team as well.

Bitcasa Gives Infinite Cloud Storage To Android

You must have heard of DropBox, Box or even SugarSync when searching for a cloud based storage solution. But have you heard of Bitcasa? Just like the previous named services, this service also offers a cloud based solution for anyone who wants to have a secure place to store their data. The only difference is that while other services impose a limit on the amount of data you can save, they don’t.

bitcasa

Yes, you read it right. There is no limit to the amount of data you can store on Bitcasa servers. The great thing about this is that it is  free as of now. You can go ahead and register for an account and download their Android app on Google Play. This will allow you to upload all your photos and videos on your phone to your Infinite Drive. There’s also a client made for Windows based PC or if you are using Google Chrome you can get its extension. This allows you to access your data from almost any device be it a PC, smartphone or a tablet.

Some of the features of Bitcasa include

  • Instant streaming, access everywhere
  • Infinite storage
  • Safe backup
  • Easy content sharing
  • Automatic data organization

Bitcasa CEO Tony Gauda said that “With our mobile app releases, we are now making all of your data easily available from mobile and PC/Mac clients while taking the security of that data very seriously. By announcing our cross-platform support today, we are offering our global users secure access on all computers, mobile devices, or Web browsers by streaming from the cloud while allowing them to keep the data they access more often localized on their hard drive.”

One of the interesting features of this service is that your data is stored in encrypted format. This means that the system itself will not see what data you have uploaded. This is actually a great way for the company to protect your files from unauthorized access.

For a limited time only this service is free to try out but will eventually cost  $10 a month for unlimited storage. This is actually a cheap price to pay compared to what other services are offering.

Dropbox had Released Update 2.0 with New Features and UI

dropbox

Dropbox had released their latest update 2.0 for the iOS with a fresh new look and new User Interface (UI). Their boast? They refined photo experience in the iOS.

For those who are not familiar what Dropbox is, here is a brief summary. Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that offers cloud storage, file synchronization and client software (ref: Wikipedia). This service was highly appreciated among mobile users especially that you can store not only your documents but also your photos and just anything else. This works by downloading the app on your iPhone, installing the app in your Mac or PC or access to Dropbox website so you can upload the file from any of the apps. It will then be synchronized to all your devices that use the same account.

The latest update of Dropbox gave the both the iPhone and iPad a massive change in the way thet they upload, organize and display photos that are better. Focusing in photos is their priority in the new interface giving a smooth and powerful gallery browsing so you will not have problem flipping to hundreds of photographs. In the past 2 updates, they have introduced also the automatic uploading to your Dropbox app after you took a photograph so you can have a back up anywhere you go. Of course, internet connection is required to use this service.

Here’s the official statement from Dropbox released in their blog:

“Now all of your photos are right at your fingertips with the brand new Photos tab. With just a tap, you’ll be able to scroll through a timeline of all the photos you’ve automatically uploaded (including the pocket-dialed ones too). And since Dropbox is a one stop shop for all your memories, you can also check out the photos you’ve uploaded from everywhere else!

Also, when you select a photo, you’ll be able to view it in full-screen glory with nary a button in sight. This means you can get maximum real estate when you’re flipping through puppy photos, or those pics of your bare feet. And to make things even better, our new speedy scroller will help you navigate all the way back to time immemorial (or your earliest photos) in seconds. Even if you have “Billions and Billions” of them.”

Have you tried using Dropbox? You really have to check it out if you haven’t. I can’t have my iPhone without.
