CloudVault: Instant Photo & Video Upload From Android To Google Drive
Google services are usually quite widely acknowledged; however, there are a few drawbacks in certain key areas that leave even the most loyal Google users longing for a lot more. For instance, take the company’s recently-launched cloud service, Google Drive, that currently lacks a very important feature of instant photo uploading from mobile devices.
CloudVault is a free Android app that supports automatic uploading of photos and videos from your mobile device straight to your Google Drive cloud storage under a custom folder. All files are uploaded in their original size, and there are several other subtle features that make CloudVault a safe and handy tool in its own respect.
The best thing about CloudVault is that not only it works out of the box, but also complements the overall Google Drive functionality substantially. Apart from serving as a very useful automatic backup solution for your fresh photo and video captures, the app supports automatically uploading local (supported) media files present in in the DCIM or Camera folder on your SD card. Another good thing about CloudVault is that it lets you control availability of its service on your Android device. Like the official Dropbox and Google+ Android clients, it lets you enable uploading over Wi-Fi only. Better yet, it also provides you with the option to upload content while roaming, and allows selection of the preferred Wi-Fi network for all upload tasks.
CloudVault has been successfully tested on Galaxy Nexus (running Android 4.1.1), and if any thing, we’d like to see the app display name of the file that is currently being uploaded. So, till Google decides to incorporate the instant upload feature within their own offering, you can safely rely on CloudVault to have your Android photos and videos automatically backed up to your Google Drive.
