Faster Uploads - Accelerated Global Uploads

June 14, 2022

Fotaflo recently released new versions of both the iOS (version 1.24) and Android (version 2.1.12) mobile apps. Along with other bug fixes and feature enhancements we've also included a change to accelerate photo and video uploads in regions outside North America. The new mobile app versions now use a better routing strategy to send your photos and videos to Fotaflo data centres more quickly to be processed and stored for delivery to your guests.

Since North American users have already enjoyed the fastest routing to our data centres they shouldn't notice much of a difference, however, users in Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa should notice faster uploads if the devices had strong internet connections to begin with.

Mobile-friendly web application coming soon.

One piece of feedback we've heard consistently is that you want to be able to operate all aspects of your photo solution directly from your mobile devices.

Fotaflo Android app update

May 14, 2021

We've been working on a major update to our Android app. It includes several changes that we hope will make it even simpler and easier to provide the best photo marketing service possible.

Android and iOS Improvements

January 28, 2020

We've released updated version of our Android and iOS apps to fix some issues and add new options.

Android App Reminder: Turn Off Power Saving Mode

December 14, 2019

Fotaflo helps you streamline your photo solution by automatically uploading and organizing photos from a smartphone. 

The Fotaflo Android app has come along way the past 10 years when our clients first started using it on the dustproof and water resistant Motorola Defy's that had an impressive 5MP camera. Now coming into 2020, we have both an Android app and an iOS app and our clients can use devices that supports those operating systems.

How does the Fotaflo Android app work?

The Fotaflo Android app works by finding photos taken on the device and moving the those files to folders managed by Fotaflo. To get the photos uploaded as quickly as possible a smaller version of the original photo is created. All of the smaller files will upload first and then the full size images will upload into the catalog and replace the smaller file. This way if you are displaying your photos to your guests after their experience they will have photos to look at and by the time they access their photo album online the full size photos will have uploaded.

Automatically Upload Photos by turning Monitoring ON

To have your photos automatically upload and organize your photos in the catalog you need to have Monitoring turned ON.

Turn Power Saving Mode OFF - Android Devices

Android Power Saving mode restricts the background data management on the device. Meaning Fotaflo cannot manage the photo files on your device.

If Fotaflo cannot manage the photo files the following two errors will occur:
  1. photos don't get monitored for uploading
  2. already uploaded photos don't get deleted and your device will run out of space

You will see a notification warning you that Monitoring is blocked because Battery Mode is enabled.

Power Saving Messages

Android QR Code Improvements

November 19, 2018

We released an update to the Fotaflo Android app to improve the reliability of QR code scanning for those of you who are using QR codes to organize your photos and videos.
