Being able to auto-upload photos and videos from iOS devices now is really useful for many people – just not for me, and anyone else who does not want to dump all their Camera Roll content into one large folder and continue doing it. I did this just once when I uploaded the complete Camera Roll of my iPhone and iPad via the My Cloud app. When that was done, I proceeded to separate photos and videos from both devices and put them into separate folders on my WD NAS. I plan further to arrange them into “collections” from my initial sorted folders.
The only way to do all this sorting and shuffling going forward is to upload new photos and videos manually and direct individual pics and vids to their respective folders, and I do just that.
So, here is my problem with doing it this way: Every time My Cloud shows me the contents of the Camera Roll to select what I want to upload, the new stuff is at the BOTTOM of the Camera Roll listing and I have to scroll down through a whole lot of previously uploaded stuff to get to the few new ones I want to upload.
Therefore, my request is for an “upload enhancement” that allows users to display the Camera Roll, not by oldest content first, but rather displayed by newest content first. A simple SORT function is I all I ask for to reverse the sort order by date (if user wants to) so newest content is shown first to make uploading new content easier.
Can we have this simple sort capability in the next version of My Cloud?
It will take about 5-10 minutes of programming time – tops!
