Free up storage space on your phone or tablet by storing your photos in the cloud

How many times have you gone to take a quick pic on your iPhone only to see the dreaded "Cannot Take Photo" error message? The one that goes on to say "There is not enough available storage to take a photo. You can manage your storage in Settings." It's not just limited to iPhones either. Android gadgets are also prone to storage shortages.

As always with this type of thing, the timing is the worst. Then, you find yourself scrambling to make room for just one picture by deleting other photos and videos, or you might erase voicemails and delete apps that take up too much space. Whatever your go-to "free up storage space" method may be, it's almost a guarantee it will take a few minutes, so before you know it, that "Kodak moment" is gone forever.

Before it happens again, check out the Room For More app. With this app, you can send batches of your photos to the Cloud and store them there with just one click. This sounds like a much better option than deleting photos and videos when making room for new photos.

With Room For More, you get 1GB of storage for free, and will be charged $0.15 for each GB used per month after that. Or, you can sign up for the unlimited annual plan for $99.99 per year.

You can also easily share full-length videos along with your photos via social media and email, and have complete control over your photos. You will be able to view them on any device and on the Web, but don't worry, Room For More also states that your photos will stay private and secure in its servers.

Note: Considering the price of Amazon Prime membership is also $99 per year, ($49 for students) with unlimited photo storage, streaming movies and TV, music, free shipping and very soon, possibly drone delivery, Amazon Prime might be the better option if you have more than 1GB of photos to store. However, Prime does put a limit of 5GB on video storage. There's no video limit with Room For More, so you will have to sort through and see what option is best for you. If you've got a lot of videos, Room For More might be the better option.
