    Default [Review] Stream Video to Your iCloud Photo Stream

    Apple's Photo Stream only allows you to stream photos via iCloud.

    As Apple introduced iCloud for the first time this year, they also showed us Photo Stream. The idea behind Photo Stream was that when you took a photo of any kind, it would be sent to iCloud and then pushed to all of your other devices so that you could view them on something other than the device that you took it on. You could see the photos on your iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, Mac, and PC. No matter what device you took the photo with. Windows users can designate a specific folder to stream the photos to, while Mac users are condemned into using iPhoto or Aperature, which are paid applications (iPhoto comes for free with a new Mac). I see this as a downfall because Windows users can actually delete photos whereas Mac users cannot (without completely killing their Photo Stream and starting over). But, that's irrelevant.

    So we know that Photo Stream can stream photos. Well, if you upgraded your iCloud storage, what else can you do with iCloud? Backing up your devices and using a photo stream isn't anywhere near enough data to fill up to 55GB of storage. Well, Apple had a backup plan with their cloud system. Developers are allowed to use iCloud for their applications. Thanks to this feature, one company has released an application that allows you to have a Video Stream.

    The application is in the App Store for 99 and it's on sale for a limited time only. It's called Video Stream for iCloud and can be downloaded here. The application has been featured by Apple and Wired as the application that lets you upload video to your iCloud. From the app itself you can choose the quality of the video to upload (high/medium/low). Obviously, higher quality will take longer to upload. I recommend doing this over Wi-Fi only because of the nature of video media files to be large. Another thing to note is that the iPhone 4S has a 1080p camera, so video media files will be much larger than the iPhone 4's 720p camera. After you upload it, you can download it to the camera roll of any iDevice that has this application installed on it.

    Name: Video Stream for iCloud
    Price: 99 (limited time)
    Developer: KendiTech
    Version: 1.0.1

    This is cool and i'll definitely be buying it, but one thing said isn't entirely true, at least for me. It says "Windows users can actually delete photos." This isn't entirely true because while i can delete them from photo stream on my computer, it doesn't effect the photostream on any of the other devices at all. There's really no benefit what so ever.

    Yeah. You can delete them from your folder. Us Mac users don't have the option to delete the photos from Aperture or iPhoto

    I guess that sucks. I just wish when I deleted it from my folder, it would delete it from all of my photo streams. Apple needs to let you delete photos from photo stream. It's so stupid that you can't.

    Agree +1
    Having to clear them all out or none at all sucks!

    The article says the app is on sale for $.99 as of Thursday, but right now, Friday noon central it is listed at $2.99. EMust have been a really limited time sale...

    Update: I looked at the wrong "video stream" app. The one in the article is "Video stream for icloud" and it on sale for $ .99
