icloud

Apple has updated their iPhoto app to ‘Photos’ and included some pretty cool iCloud syncing.  All your photos are available everywhere all the time.  It keeps smaller copies of the photos on your iOS device while allowing the larger original ones to stay in the Cloud and it can download the larger files to your computer if you want.
