It's a well-used saying that the best camera in the world is the one that you happen to have on you at the time you need it. Which for most people probably means a phone. Which is why we all have so many photos on our phone which, if it was easier, we'd probably transfer to a PC for safety and for a better viewing experience.
To that end, Microsoft has just released a new app for Android and iOS that makes photo transfer easy, so long as the phone and computer are both on the same WiFi network. Oh, and you'll need to be running Windows 10 on the PC.
With the app installed, choose the photos you want to transfer, and then your computer will display a QR code. Use the phone to scan the QR code, and the transfer takes place. No cable required.
The app is called Photos Companion so you can search for it in your app store or the Play store. Or, the Android app is at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.PhotosCompanion and the iOS one is at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photos-companion/id1322187844?ls=1&mt=8
My thanks to Lex Davidson for telling me about this one.
