Why can not I Sync Picasa Web Albums?
Tool : T - Mobile G2 (UK)/ HTC Hero OS : 2.1
I would love to Sync Picasa Web Albums, like on this video clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIfjt3pye5c. Nonetheless, the alternative is absent - just calls, Google Reader, Google Mail, schedule. I've attempted seeing Picasa Web Albums website on my phone internet browser, and also re - beginning the phone, yet it is not there. Just how can I enable it?
Edit (28th Jan) - I elevated a ticket on support.htc.com concerning this a while earlier. Below are their feedbacks ...
" Dave": "Do you have the Picasa alternative receiving the accounts and also sync folder of Settings on your phone, please?"
" Dave" : "Can you validate you are going for the very least Android 2.1 on your mobile phone?"
" Richard" : "Christopher, your e-mail has actually been passed to myself for more activity as there has actually been no task on it given that the 22nd Jan. Picasa is a 3rd event application and also you will certainly require to install added software program from the Android Market to enable this capability. (Picasa Album Sync is not pre - mounted on your phone.)"
" Richard" : "The picasa sync is not pre - mounted on any one of the HTC mobile phones running Android 2.x. I have actually examined numerous android phones running 2.1 and also 2.2 that we have below and also none have a Picasa sync alternative. I will certainly hand down this details to the programmers and also educate them that a consumer has actually requested for this function to be consisted of on the phones. This might bring about it being applied in a future upgrade. In the meanwhile if you desire that capability after that you will certainly require to get 3rd event software program which can give it."
I'm not exactly sure why Dave asked those inquiries, when Richard is adament that the capability does not exist. Does any person have any kind of instances of Picasa working with HTC mobile phones running Android 2.x?
You require to install the Gallery 3D application. It is not readily available on the marketplace yet below is a link for the APK which you will certainly require to download and install to your SD card and also install by hand (usage Astro, or comparable).
(Dmitriy currently offered this solution yet I had the link & had not been certain you would certainly seen my comment so I've included this as a solution also)
I have a T - Mobile Vibrant and also when I was running the Stock Samsung 2.1 TouchWiz I did not have this alternative to sync to Picasa. Yet I am currently running a 2.2 ROM and also I can sync it. I would certainly claim to attempt to visit to picasa using your COMPUTER first, and also possibly post an image, create a gallery, points like that. After that return in to your tool and also see if you can sync it.
You will certainly enter to your google account in Accounts & Sync and also it need to have the alternative therein to sync. you do not need to add an additional account on the major Accounts and also sync screen.
It will certainly additionally collaborate with Google Apps accounts, if they have actually been updated to the "complete google account" by the applications manager.
There is an application called 3D Gallery. This application sustains making use of Picasa from the google account. After mounting and also releasing it will certainly ask you for approval to accessibility picasa and afterwards you will certainly surf the on-line collection as if its neighborhood with alternatives to replicate.
Here is what you need to do:
- Go right into the Gallery
- Long click an image, pick "Share" and afterwards pick "Picasa"
- On the "upload image" screen add a new cd, after that post the image (no matter what cd, you simply require to add one to create a new folder in Picasa. This is the method to connecting your phone and also your Picasa Web Albums).
- After it is done uploading (examine the internet to see to it it functioned) from the residence screen struck the food selection switch and also most likely to Settings > Accounts & Sync > Click on your gmail address that is related to Picasa. Currently you need to see "Sync Picasa Web Albums" in the food selection.
If that does not function. Attempt restarting afterwards procedure, and afterwards if that still does not function ...: o (
