Syncomatic will transfer your Photos and Movies to your Mac it runs in the background and automatically syncs/transfers your Photos & Movies to your Mac, and can import them to iPhoto & Aperture.

No need to remember to sync or open the app and choose what to sync, Syncomatic knows what to sync and when.

Amazingly simple - setup and forget. All your Photos & Movies will be automatically synced to your mac ready for you to view and use.

Automatic syncing - app sleeps in background syncing Photos & Movies as soon as possible

Knows what to sync - Syncomatic knows what it has synced and only sends un-synced Photos & Movies.

Preserves all Photos & Movies Meta data, such as photo location.

Direct import into iPhoto & Aperture - The companion software can save Photos & Movies to a folder of your choice and/or import to iPhoto & Aperture

Shows the number of Photos & Movies to sync on its home screen icon badge.

Low system load - Uses very little battery or processing power when sleeping.

Syncomatic uses your location and network connectivity to determine when it can sync and to keeps its battery usage to the absolute minimum.

Recent Reviews:

WIRED - I like the app a lot so far, mostly because it just works. That and the fact that it is a way faster, and way more reliable that my sucky Eye-Fi card.

TUAW - I like Syncomatic. It does what it is designed to do, all without my even having to think about it. I've added it to my photo app folder, and expect to use it quite a bit.

GIGAOM - After only a few days use, Syncomatic has already become one of my most-used apps, since it lets me keep my iPhone’s camera roll clear and uncluttered, while also making sure I don’t lose a worthwhile clip or snapshot in the process.

alittlephotoshop - I love its simplicity and I hope the team that make it keep that simplicity in mind with future upgrades. If you want seamless hassle free syncing then go get yourself Syncomatic.
