can someone please explain this to me?
i understand what it is but it doesn't seem to be working.
i have photostreaming "on" on both my phone and ipad.
i take the pic on my phone and it should automatically go onto my ipad?
how long does it take? or do i have to sync the units to make the transfer?

I think a lot has to do with the condition of the Apple servers. So far I have tried it a couple of times and it has taken as short as a few seconds and as long as a couple of minutes

One particularly annoying thing to note...it will only connect to photo stream to upload or download if you're on wifi.
