Photo Space App for iPhone shrinks Photos by 85% & Fixes Low Storage Issues

by Karthik Iyer 0

iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus are one of the best flagship smartphones launched in 2015. But the only disappointing feature of this phone which stops it from being a perfect smartphone is the storage capacity. Apple decided to make their recent iPhones capable of shooting in 4K resolution but only have 16GB of storage to save those clips. It might just be the company’s strategy to make people buy the higher storage capacity variant for the extra price.

If you are an iPhone user and just own a 16 GB variant, then this might just be the perfect app for you. An app called Photo Space by Avast, can shrink down your photos efficiently and make room for more memories. Yes, there are dozens of apps that do the same thing and gives you more space, but the result is not as appealing. The quality of your photos will be lower than what it ideally should be. But Photo Space is here to solve this issue. It shrinks down your photos to the same resolution as your iPhone screen, so it won’t look like it came out of a low-end smartphone.

Also, if you like to view your images on a computer screen, or use editing software and print a full resolution shot, the app also uploads the original full resolution images to cloud storage. The best part about this app is, instead of restricting to the iCloud service, it is flexible and lets users choose what cloud service to use for the storage like the Dropbox or Google Drive. The app also comes with a camera mode which allows you to click pictures and store them on the cloud and shrinking the resolution of your iPhone screen which is stored locally on your device.

The app is available for iOS in the App Store free of cost. It is not available for Android, but because most of the smartphones running Android have microSD card expandability or comes with higher onboard storage capacity starting from either 32 GB or 64 GB and so on it is not of utmost necessity. In fact, even the new rumored iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is expected to launch with a minimum storage capacity of 32 GB and will go up to 256 GB. Also the new iOS 10 update for which the company released the beta version, will let you shoot images in raw format.
