CNET News Video: Photo app stores memories in the cloud

1:01 /

Having a new and improved camera on the iPhone 4S is a blessing and a curse. More pictures means less storage space. Until now. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi shares the details of a new app that frees up that precious space, no matter how many photos you take.

The new iPhone app called Cold Photo let's you (figure?) photos to the...you guess it to the cloud. Here's who it works. After downloading the 99 cents app you'll be able to connect your camera roll library to drop box. You can create drop box photos by capping the button in the lower left corner. To snap a picture tap the camera icon button at the bottom of the app. The photo were the photo will be saved is also listed in the lower left corner. Keep in mind that text uploaded to drop box won't show up in your camera roll. The apps saves a large thumbnail other image that reportedly only takes up (one 40th?) of the space as an original photo. You can easily move and copy photos and an entire folders making it easy to transfer photos from drop box to your iPhone and vice versa. Keeping your memory in the clouds could be simpler in San Francisco. I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
