ONE OF APPLE'S shortcomings is the company's steadfast resistance to sharing content between devices and that weak area causes headaches any time the extended family comes together with photos to share.
Fortunately, there are apps that help circumvent Apple's failure at Bluetooth. I have set up sync settings into shared cloud services with the family iPhones, Galaxies and Lumias. We share OneDrive and Flickr albums which means each handset owner can see photos and videos snapped and recorded by others. The weak link in this whole synchronised setup is data services. Some of the family use their smartphones without any mobile data and depend upon my Huawei MiFi to give them free and open internet access for sharing in the cloud. That is alright with me.
