I would like an application that detects when I take a photo with my phone and then uploads it to my FTP storage. All this automatically in the background. The idea would be something like that the application creates a database of the names of all the pictures on the phone, if it finds a new one, it uploads it. (I have my own VPN server, I always have internet, so I can always access the SSD on my home NAT) (I'm at the beginner level of app inventor, but it's going pretty well, English language skills are lacking)
Thank you very much!
Just like Google Photos?
About yes, but I want to send it to my own home storage
Well, I've made it this far. I think that the result obtained should now be saved in a database, which is actually the path to all the .jpg files in the DCIM folder.
Thank you very much!!! Where can I download the FtpClient extension?
Search the forum for "FtpClient":
The point is not that you upload the .jpg when I take it with the application, I take the photo with the mobile phone's own application, and then e.g. at night, my "own" application would upload the new pictures.....
The idea would be something like that the application creates a database of the names of all the pictures on the phone, if it finds a new one, it uploads it.
So, my application should make a list of all the pictures on the phone, and then e.g. search for new photos at night, if you find them, upload them. (sorry for my english)
/DCIM folder & sub-folders:
Of course you can do it with all folders, because you can access media files from any location on all Android versions.
So you can also list all JPG files from the root dir of the external storage & all sub-folders in just one step (the same way as I've shown). Of course the app need
READ permission on all Android versions.

Thank you very much!!! You are very big!!! I did it with another extension. I don't know why, but the application stops with the error "index too large" or "Select list item: Attempt to get item number 1 of a list of length 0: ". What have I done wrong?
The FTP extension: http://kio4.com/appinventor/274_extensiones_clienteftp_hora.htm
Learn to debug your project
Check, if there are files in the file list before trying to upload
Are you sure, you like to copy all images into your ASD? Your device storage might be full soon...
Well, that's almost good. It automatically connects to ftp, automatically prepares the file list, and automatically uploads it. But, if a new image is added to the folder, a new list is not created, so it is not uploaded. And if I generate a new file list, it starts uploading all of them again, not just the new images. The extension I'm using doesn't have a GotUploadResult method, would using FtpClient automatically solve my problem above?
