5 stars for the service, 3 stars for the app. I like having original copies of my photos backed up so I appreciate unlimited uncompressed storage (including RAW) of photos with Prime. However, the app is a bit slow and uploads don't always seem to happen. It also lacks many photo management features. I use this for backups only and Google Photos (unlimited but slightly modified) for actually managing and looking at photos.
Not free! If you want unlimited space you have to PAY, 59.99 a year.. Someone posted it was "free" it's not. Dropbox holds more pictures than this app before you pay for more space.... ...BUT NO thank you I have Google photos,thats free and unlimited. I'm sticking with Google. Good try Amazon. Lol
The overall concept of this app is good as long as you are a Prime member. However there needs to be more control in the app settings. by default your photos are uploaded to the could using the device model of your phone. if you happen to have 2 identical phones and intend to use this app for photo backup, it will intermix the photos from both phones into the same folder. It would be simple enough to use the device name, which can typically be customized in the phone settings...
Slow and not syncing properly Firstly we are forced to use this as it's the only app that will sync with Amazon Prime (Drive). My S7 runs very warm when it is syncing, which is OK if it worked; I deleted some pictures from my S7 but this app didn't pick up on that even after a reboot and kept trying to upload them and wouldn't move past that to upload any others. In the end I had to reinstall the app to get past that.
I liked this app till this morning. I had to uninstall it because it wasn't working properly. Now I can't download it to my phone because it says already installed. What a mess. Maybe amazon was reading my review as I went back and was finally able to reinstall it. Hoping that clears up the problem as my smart phone does not have a lot of storage ability.
The app is a dog... On my Note 4, the app takes all resources during the upload, turning the phone into an unusable brick. Also, it crashes quite often and operates very slowly when looking at the pictures. I expected better from a company like Amazon.
