    Hi. I have a Samsung S4 on Verizon. I take several pics a day at work. I am looking for a way to get the pics that I take to immediately go to my laptop over wifi. I want it done automatically with no user involvement. I have the google plus service where my pics get sent to a cloud, but I am trying to minimize the upload time and the download time. I am always on the same wifi router. So when I take a pic, I would like a copy of it to be immediately placed in a folder on my desktop.

    This app looks like it is everything I want, but I cant get it to work. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sweesoft.sweethome&hl=en I am having the hardest time trying to get the phone to find the laptop.

    Any sugestions or help getting this thing to work would be really appreciated.

    My best suggestion would be DropBox. It can be set to auto upload every pic only on WiFi and it would be available on your desktop.

    If you want to not upload and/or download you may want to look at some apps that will sync with a folder on your desktop. Look at Syncplicity.

    I use FolderSync. Has desktop, dropbox, google drive, etc sync support.
