7 thoughts on “PicRemote and PicRemoteX Remote iPad Camera

      • Mike,

        I work for Apple as an elevated support rep for iPad and iPhone.  I downloaded the picremote for iPad and iPhone last night and was able to transfer a few pics but not the way it shows in the screen shots in the app store. The iPhone would say it will show on your iPad shortly but never appear in the application. They did however show up under all photos in my photos application. Now I would like to delete them but there is no way that I can find to be able to delete them. I have tried connecting to iPhoto to see if it allows to be imported and then delete originals, I have tried while viewing all photos tapping the share button which would give you delete/share/cancel but delete is grayed out and not an option, there is no trash can when viewing the photos individually, and there is no way to do it from within the app, I also tried deleting both apps and downloading again but no change and they wouldn’t connect. Please help me I do not want to restore my iPad just to delete 5 photos when I have 40 GB of content on here and all my settings. BTW I’m using my 3GS with 3.1.3 software and my 64GB 3G iPad is up to date as well.

        Thanks,
        Jason  

      • Hi Jason,

        I’m sorry you’re running into this problem. My initial thought about this is; if the picremote app didn’t display the image(s) on the ipad, (due to a bug in my app…I’ll try to get a patch up for that when I have a chance), then the code to save the images to the ipad photos app would never have executed. Did you by any chance do a sync from iTunes as well that could have put the images onto the ipad? I dug around a bit and found a discussion thread where people are running into a similar problem. The solution given in the thread seems to be that photos synced through iTunes need to be deleted through iTunes as well. Try deleting them in iTunes from the ipad section after connecting your ipad and see if that works. Here is the thread: http://www.everythingicafe.com/forum/ipad/deleting-images-on-ipad-64120-2.html and here is another post that explains deleting ipad photos: http://tipsneeded.com/remove-delete-photos-ipad/ Let me know if this doesn’t work and I can try putting together a small utility for you to delete photos from the native photo app’s storage (although I’m not sure if that is even possible with the api, but I can look into it if your still stuck).

  1. Mike,
    Thanks for the response but those threads are for people that have no idea what they are doing and don’t understand how to use iTunes to sync photos. When syncing photos if you want them off, you simply unsync them. These are not synced photos and therefore should be in the saved photos album which would give you the option to delete directly from the iPad, however the only place they show is in all photos view and as I stated before no way to delete them. I guess I’ll just restore my iPad today. You may want to try updating the app to support over WiFi instead of Bluetooth for better connectivity and try to get that bug fixed. Great idea for the app in theory as long as it works correctly. Get it fixed and I’m sure you would have a winner you could charge several dollars for. Good luck man.

    Jason
