If you’re looking for a new approach to online storage, read on to find out more about 123Friday, and how to sign up with my special access code.
A little while ago Belle and I were on our final outing of the summer holidays, doing a spot of archery. (As you do.) Belle was poised, bow in hand, and I reached for my phone to take a picture.
‘Sorry,’ said my phone, (not out loud), ‘but you don’t have enough storage for that.’
And then of course you can’t just delete one photo to make room for another one. Oh no, that would be way to easy. Apparently to make room for just one photo, I have to delete 49 existing photos, and two apps. Grrr. Doesn’t my phone know who I am? I do interesting things phone, I need to be able to capture exciting shots at a moment’s notice.
When you’re in Paris and it’s 38 degrees for example, your ice cream just isn’t going to wait.
Plus, even though my phone photos are supposedly on stored at the moment on iCloud, they still seem to take up masses of room. You’d think that if they were backed up, that would mean they wouldn’t take up any space? I’ve always found that hard to get my head round.
If this all sounds like you, 123Friday might be worth having a look at as an alternative.
123Friday backs up your phone to the cloud automatically, and stores everything for you – photos, videos and contacts. Unlike iCloud, which is more of a mirroring, 123Friday stores them safely, so you can empty your camera roll, and take as many photos and videos as you want, forever. Boom. It’ll probably take a little time to do your first backup – try setting up the App to do the transfer over night – but once set up it’s dead simple to use. You can see everything and restore it to your phone any time you want too.
Here’s a little video about 123Friday from Tigerlilly Quinn – I definitely wasn’t swayed by the cute pictures of Mabli and Wilf. (Okay, just a little bit.)
If you fancy giving 123Friday a go, you’ll need to follow my link and use the code JO17, as access is by invitation only.
Here’s to lots more photos, and no more annoying ‘out of storage messages’. Don’t forget to look after your phone or camera, including keeping them clean. Additional reading here.
Disclosure – this isn’t a paid feature, but I will earn a referral fee for every sign up. (Everyone does who refers friends.)
