Copy That 1.1 has been released. This includes the following changes:

  • Added the ability to filter source media by date. This includes several presets (“Today”, “Past 2 days”, “Past week”, “Past 2 weeks”), and the option to set a custom date range.
  • Added the ability to group copied media into folders on the destination disk. The user can select any combination of a custom folder name, grouping by iOS device name, media content type, and media creation date.
  • When choosing a destination disk, we added a link to an online article about connecting external storage to help answer common questions
  • Improved feedback and options if the user’s media & date choices result in no files being copied.
  • Fixed a crash that happens when the user denies access to the Photos library, then starts a copy.
  • Misc. UI improvements.
