Review from Daniel Najar
Excellent Application Would be perfect if I could move photos to another folder otherwise great app
they recently goofed the app up by making it impossible to view or download your photos in full resolution. they get recompressed to like 10% of the size and look bad. There should be an option to enable the full resolution preview again and download should always be full resolution
I like the app but I use it heavily in conjunction with photos I have on Amazon drive. The ability to have a smart folder is amazing. The implementation of how you find that folder is the most niece and poorly implemented file system yo have made it into this millennium. Just have the navigation of Amazon drive already. That's what you are browsing. Same comment for desktop app and website. Browsing by all folders is ridiculous as you would have to have completely unique names for every single folder. Utterly unusable. And the most recent update removes the display of folder meta data. Without date created shown it removes the slightest shred of chance of finding the folder you need.
What a great benefit for being a Prime member. Love the Family Vault. All of my daughter's pics from her phone are uploaded there automatically. Pictures are easy to find with the face recognition. Haven't used the print service yet. Hoping it is as good as Shutterfly.
I manage all my photos on my phone with this app. Love the backup to the cloud and that I can delete pics from the cloud, my phone, or both depending on my needs. BUT, I find the app really glitchy, especially lately. It frequently gets the date wrong for photos - pics taken within seconds of each other show up as days apart. Not a big issue since the pics show correctly in my photo gallery, but still a bit annoying. What I find REALLY frustrating is that the delete function isn't working. I will select to delete pics from both cloud and device and it won't do it. It works on some but only deletes from one place on others and it won't show that there is an issue right away. So I have to wait, recheck, and then re-delete (multiple times in cases) to get the pics to go away. If I don't, they get synced up during auto sync so they keep reappearing - I can't get some pics to go away (there are some particularly unflattering ones of me that keep coming back. Highly traumatizing. Make it stop!)
This app no longer handles my collections well. Slideshow and other features constantly crash the app. It used to be useful.
Just accidentally deleted the entire 'camera' album on my phone. 120 pictures would have just been gone. The auto-upload feature just saved me!
