Quickly view screens from your iPhone or iPad

  • April 06, 2012

Transferring screens from an iPhone or iPad for review on a Mac used to be a multi-step process. My old process involved the following steps:

  1. Manually capture screenshot (simultaneously press Home / Sleep buttons)
  2. Open Dropbox app
  3. Upload image to Dropbox from Camera Roll
  4. Open Dropbox folder on Mac and locate new image

So archaic.

The new way is far easier and less involved thanks this handy tip via Shawn B. This new method requires Photo Stream on all devices and a saved Finder search on your Mac. Once setup, screenshots captured on any one of your iOS devices will auto-magically appear on your Mac for review.
