I’ve had my iPhone for about a year now. There are two technologies that I don’t quite understand: autocorrect and autofill.
When I first got the phone, friends told me that the more I used certain words, however made-up, the autofill technology would recognize those words over time. Now when I type in “amaz,” an autofill bubble pops up with the word “amazeballs.” Great! That, in itself, is amazeballs.
Most of you know that I walk dogs. What you might not know is that after every walk, my clients get a “report card” via email on how their pup was on the walk. This always includes a poop and pee report. It sounds gross, it’s important that they know this stuff. And anyway, dog walkers can talk candidly about doggy diarrhea without flinching. It’s our job.
Anyway, I type the words “poop” and “pee” enough times a day that any time I type “po” or “pe,” I expect autofill to do at least offer to do the rest. And if I type “piip” or some other close derivative of “poop” or “pee,” I expect autocorrect to recognize that as a nonword and to offer to autocorrect it to “poop.”
Am I asking too much? Because this does not happen. I finally got my phone to recognize fuck and shit as words. Yet poop and pee are what? Too offensive? Too giggle-worthy? I don’t get it.
So I’m tired of having so many logins for stuff, particularly for my photos. I have accounts with Shutterfly (that I haven’t used in ages), Google+ (mostly as a backup for pictures and videos taken on my phone) and Facebook.
Help me out computer nerds! Is there a way to link my Facebook photos to my Google+ account? When I take a photo with my iPhone, my Google+ app automatically uploads the image to my Google+ account. Any way to get Facebook to do the same? How about Shutterfly? Or even move my Shutterfly pics to another photo account?
I did a bare minimum of research about it and came up with an article about a program called Social Photos. It’s a third party app that asks you to log in to the two accounts you’d like to link. Once you authorize the logins, it’s a simple drag and drop function. The article provided a link. I clicked it and it gave me an error page. Oops.
Has anyone used anything like this? I’d really like to avoid doing it manually.
I saw it Wednesday night and set it up Thursday morning. It took a while seeing as I had 417 files to upload to my Google+ account but totally worth it. And I’ve set it up so that all future photos will upload instantly.
