BitPim

With my old phone, from the Dark Ages, there was no way to transfer pictures I had taken to any other device without emailing them... which is both convoluted and costs money. Hence, being the intrepid internet explorer that I am, I asked the Google to find a solution. BitPim was the Internet's unanimous answer; home-brewed code that allowed you to interact with the inner workings of your cell phone data, providing you buy a cable from some shady internet dealer to connect your phone to a computer.

That was several years ago. My brand spanking new phone comes with a USB cable.

And yet, BitPim is still the best way to transfer pictures to and from my phone!?

WTF indeed.
