No rival. The one and only.
Great obviously ITS GOOGLE! But seriously it's the best editor photo and gallery app EVER. Cool things I wouldn't even have thought of before. The editor can make my photos look amazing and the assistant is very clever with collages and movies and animations. It backs up my photos and saves them when I accidentally deleted them. Plus you get loads of free photo storage FREE.5 stars totally recommend. Keep improving. Good job.
Just auto uploaded all my phone and desktop pics going back years which seems to be great. However after using for a while the app is taking up 580Mb of data storage on my phone. I've cleared the cache and emptied the deleted photos from the app, but still takes 580Mb, not too clever considering it is supposed to store everything in the cloud. Only 3 stars until this is fixed.
I didn't know I had this app pre-installed on my phone until one day just recently I got a notification on my phone that I had a new movie available. I clicked on it because I had no idea what it was about and I was blown away by the movie clips it put together. I had a 90-second movie showing my kids from about the past 2 years, sound from the clips (love hearing their voices from way back), and music in the background! It made me tear up while I sat in my office at work. Made my day. I still watch the same movie about 3 times a day. Lol. I showed the movie to everyone I know. Truly an amazing app. I love it!
Google Photos is a wonderful photo organiser app. Using it on my Pixel 2 XL and loving it. Auto backup option is very useful feature which helps free up space from your phone storage. If you have Google's PhotoScan and Snapseed Apps installed in your phone, you can launch them right from the Photos app. Also, you have the options to crop and add various effects to your photos.
This app is good for automatically offering stylized versions of your photos, creating collages, and movies of your recent work. My reason they it's not 5 star is if you save these movies etc they are not accessable to post on Facebook etc ( which is the only reason I save them). I don't care to share a Google link. Also if you free up storage on your phone, you cannot access those photos through Facebook or Instagram anymore, but I constantly need to refer to old photos and the storage on this phone was THE reason I bought a Google pixel XL. Please FIX this!
