Great app to backup and organize preservable quality photos even with the free storage option. This is the only place where I backup my photos taken with my phone. I also backup photos from my desktop taken using my DSLR. The desktop uploader needs improvement though. It often fails to backup some photos. Also I use Lightroom to edit my DSLR raw photos, but the there is no ways to upload the photos with Lightroom edits, the unedited raw photos get uploaded and you have to either edit those again using the photos app or you have to export from Lightroom and then edit. Lightroom integration would be great. I love the auto organization, album and gif generation features of the photos assistant. Overall like the app. Lightroom integration will make me love the app.
Good app, love it for sharing with family and friends. I wish it allowed you to cache an album on your phone (i.e., a "Make available offline" feature a la Google music). I've blown through my cell data 2 months running by showing people vacation photos on my phone over cellular network.
Never lose a photo again! No matter if your phone is stolen, broken, anything.... Google has earned my trust in many key aspects of life where apps continue to replace things like checkbooks, personal/ career planners and so many others. When choosing apps, I always check Google to see if they have what I need & in most cases they do plus things I haven't even thought of yet. Everyone has had to adapt to technology taking over, Google makes it simple, easy to understand & navigate. Highly recommend by me!!
Right now giving it a 1 star. My photos keep duplicating on the app but when looking on computer they aren't duplicated. If I delete one of the duplicates in the app it deletes the whole photo from the computer but leaves one on my app and the original device(my phone). I don't know what is happening!
I love this app! Someone told me Google was doing away with it and that ruined my day! It is awesome! Make great movies, collages and albums without telling it to. I hope it is around forever! Plus, I am a big Google fan! I love all of their products! I can't say enough good things! Yay Google photos!
