You know that feeling of dread that you get when a pop-up on your iPhone lets you know you’re just about to run of storage? Worse: when that pop-up appears just as you’re about to take an important photo or video?

There’s an app that can help with that.

Most apps provide the opposite service — they sap your phone of more storage. But this is the one app you should download right now if you never want to run out of storage again.


Some apps are naturally going to rob you of phone storage faster than others. But, while it’s easy to delete the Facebook app and access the social media site via your browser, there isn’t much that can be done about your phone’s amazing camera and photo app.

Your iPhone takes amazing photos and videos — and that isn’t something you probably want to limit. But if you’re saving all of those photo and video files on your device, you are also costing your phone major storage.

This app can help.



The truth is: there are a number of apps out there that will store images and videos so that you can delete them from your photos app and will, in turn, give you back major storage space. But you don’t have to spend a lot of money on apps — one of the best is an old-school app that’s completely free: Dropbox.


Dropbox is a free iCloud storage app that’s available on iPhone and Android. It’s free up to 2GB and syncs across devices. It’s also the perfect free app is you just want a simple solution and don’t want to jump through hoop to figure out how to store your photos.

According to Expert Photography: “It is a rather simple platform, which is perfect to avoid confusion. It’s best for those photographers who store their images in folders, as DB works in a similar way.”


You can download Dropbox to run on any device. Free photos and videos from your photo app by dragging and dropping them to Dropbox.

That’s it! That’s all it takes to move images over to a safe storage space and boost your phone’s storage space ASAP.
