Smartphone photos should be downloaded from the mobile device sooner, rather than later, for security reasons – either to a cloud service or to your computer.

For those who don’t like to rely on cloud services for this purpose and find it annoying to connect the smartphone to the computer using a cable, there’s an interesting Microsoft app called Photos Companion.

Available for Android and iOS, the app transfers the images stored on a smartphone in one go to a Windows 10 computer via WiFi.

To do so, open the Windows 10 Photos app and select “Import from mobile via WiFi”. The program then displays a QR code that needs to be scanned with the smartphone. You can then select the images on your mobile device and send them to your PC. — dpa
