    Avast has unveiled a new app, Photo Space, which is designed to enable you to free up space on your iOS device. The app works by optimising photos in order to reduce the amount of storage that they occupy by seven times, creating photo and storage space.

    The app works by lowering a photo’s resolution to device screen values, and the original, high-res version of the photo is sent to your cloud account. This ensures that the quality of the original photo is preserved, but you now have more space on your phone and an easily accessible version of the photo even when you’re offline.

    Avast Photo Space includes a camera app that automatically transfers, optimizes, and syncs photos via personal cloud accounts, which can shrink 7GB of photos down to 1GB.

      Well l'm giving it a try. It offers to use my dropbox or google to as a store. Even telling me how many photos l can store in them. Sadly l only have space for 11,507 in google.

      This app optimizes photo storage on your device exactly like iCloud Photo Library does, without a third party app like this one.

      If I want to load images to Dropbox or Google, I do that directly, without using another app. It's possible to upload the images to these apps automatically, so I don't understand why I should use Avast to get them there.

      Not that I was planning to use the app (have other easier alternatives), I was curious - first issue is that the app is optimized for the iPhone (although 1X expansion on an iPad is possible w/ poorer resolution vs. the smaller image) - second issue, selection of Dropbox or Google Drive, brings up the 'requests' by Avast shown in the screen capture below - I was not about to give permission for those items, so deleted the app. Dave :)

      Since this app merely duplicates the already existing capability of iCloud Photo Library, I don't see the need for an app like Avast Photo Space as it gives us nothing new.

      I suppose it could be useful for thise who don't want to purchase extra iCloud storage. For me, the extra hoops you would have to jump through to use this less itegrated solution isn't worth the small savings in cost.
