QuickShot with Dropbox by GUI Cocoa is a photography app that makes storing, sharing, and backing up every moment you capture simple and seamless. In QuickShot v2.0, the convenience goes even further with the addition of a secondary camera shutter button, profiles, and enhancements to uploading.
Not only is QuickShot about streamlining the aforementioned tasks, the app provides flexibility by allowing you to select upload location, photo quality, video quality, file name, and whether to save a copy to your iDevice’s camera roll. Adjusting these settings hasn’t been difficult, although, it can be tedious, and that’s the next process GUI Cocoa is going to simplify.
Introducing Capture Profiles, a way to save preferred setting combinations for quick selection in the future. QuickShot v2.0 includes three example profiles, but the idea is to create your own. For example, you could add a profile called Web with the upload location being /Public/Web, and choose lower quality output settings for reduced loading times.
To manage profiles, go to the Settings area and then enter Capture Profiles. When you just need to switch the active profile, tap and hold on the Settings button in capture mode to display all stored profiles. This replaces the previous behavior, which only offered upload location modification.
Another change within the capture mode is the addition of a second shutter button. Following the footsteps of a few other photo app developers, pressing the volume up button on your iPhone activates the camera shutter. Note, however, this option isn’t present when using the app on an iPad, nor does it start and stop video capture.
After taking a photo or recording a video, it is automatically uploaded. QuickShot has always displayed an indicator at the top of the screen for the number of active uploads, though v2.0 adds upload status details. Tap on the upload indicator to view the progress of all files in the upload queue. Once a file is uploaded successfully, it is removed from the list.
Other improvements consist of more efficient uploading, a fix for network status checking that could cause uploads via a cellular data connection whether the authorization preference is set to on or off, and a fix for queued camera roll write fails when multiple photos or videos are captured rapidly.
QuickShot with Dropbox is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $1.99.
