    Default Will Photo Burst and iCloud Photos be synced to other devices in iOS 8?

    Hi,

    I love the iPhone 5S' Photo Burst feature. It organises all the pics from one burst into 1 folder, and you can choose to keep them all or only your favourites/best photos.
    With iCloud Photos in iOS 8, will these "folders" be synced to other devices?
    It would be very convenient to be able to choose the best pics of them all on the larger screen of an iPad or Mac.
    Currently, all photos from one burst can be uploaded to Photo Stream, but they all become separate pictures. No "folder" which you can open and browse through.
    Does this change with iOS 8?

    That would be great if that happens. I'm only running the beta on my 5S so I can't test it out. I'm sure someone running the beta on multiple devices will chime in.

    If it's burst I believe it will only be stored on the device. It may pick the best overall photo of the burst and add that to other devices in iCloud.

    It works how you want it to! I just tried it between my iPhone and iPad. Didn't try with my Mac but I'm guessing that doesn't work until the new Photos app comes out I early 2015. Probably won't work with iPhoto.

    Awesome! Thanks for trying!
    No, I don't believe iPhoto will be updated to work with photo bursts. But I'm hoping (and expecting) the new Mac Photos app to support them, now that I know that iOS syncs them, including those handy "folders".

    Oh, one more thing: Are you also able to view the iPhone 5S' slo-mo videos on your iPad?

    I'm at work now. I'll try to remember to test this out later today at home. Feel free to PM me if I don't remember.
