Review from Ella S
Thank you For finally syncing newly taken photos with my cloud. With this update, this is the best app for me. I have hundreds of photos on my phone and I need to make space but, never had the means to do it. Now I do..
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.
Convenient but slow This app is excellent for synchronizing our two phones across the web for backup and sharing purposes. It's also great with the Fire TV for a fun family screen saver. The drawback is that when accessing images from the cloud, it is often slow, and the app doesn't seem to cache the thumbnails, so if you want to quickly show someone a particular image, it may take forever to find it.
Awful app So I have a phone with 16gb internal storage. After installing this app it took forever to finally figure out how to back up. But I noticed after backing up and deleting the photos off my phone, I was getting the low on storage space message. I used a disk utility app to find out what is eating up all the space and to my surprise Amazon photos was using over 1gb of data. I cannot use this app on my phone and it needs a ton of interface work. Why strip the metadata? Horrible rushed app.
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...
Latest update After reaching out to customer support I finally got a fix on my android device (note 4) with the latest update, where it stopped prompting me everytime I navigated in the app about enabling auto save. However the most recent update comes with a different problem. 'This day' feature which used to load photos from previous years has now stopped working. Please fix.
