Best photo app out there, by far.
This app is absolutely amazing! It's smart even! Face recognition, photos by date, filters, collages etc. Fun part is when I've taken a ton of photos at one time (like a B-Day party) it will suggest I make something special, for example, a mini movie! What I love about Google Photos is that I will never loose my images ever again. They are easily accessed on any device through my Google acct! All this for FREE!! Thank you Google!
Solid und useful gallery app and good replacement of the stock gallery app on non Google phones. Love the intelligent search algorithm with image auto-tagging. The assistant that occasionally creates edited images of already existing ones is also a sweet and interesting feature. Also it is integrated with Googles photo cloud and syncs as soon as you take new pictures, so everything is save and ready to be accessed from other devices and the web. The Google Drive integration is also a nifty feature. One contra: If you use the built-in feature to delete the pictures from the device and only keep them in the cloud (to free up space), they will no longer be organized in the folders like downloads (if you have decided to back them up as well), but will be lost in the stream and therefore hard to find. If Google could back up the folders or relations to them as well, it would be awesome. Besides of this one contra, i really recommend this app. It really does way more you would expect from a gallery app, but still excels on the core functionality as well.
This is a really terribly designed app. It's very surprising it's a made by Google a company with so many resources! First of all its a total mess that cannot be organised. Secondly there is no ability to just have folders and most important EXCLUDE locations! Seriously? What's even worse pictures are mixed with videos and since I have loads of music, all my album covers are there too since you CANNOT EXCLUDE MUSIC LOCATIONS! Imagine instead of using a wardrobe you just throw all your clothes in the middle of your room. That's how it feels to use this app. Truly awful!
Things and Places folders have lots of photos wrong. Labelling groups of trees as jungle. Car folder where most of the photos aren't cars. Fence listed under boats. Literally hundreds of wrongly labelled photos. Too many to manually fix. Photo recognition is surprisingly really bad. Update: when it creates stylised photos or panoramas it only let's me save some of them. Photo recognition is still poor.
In short , this photo video storage app ... for 1 has FREE UNLIMITED photo and video storage.. AWSOME!!!😁 for 2 keeps as many if not by far more videos and pictures taken from any and all you android devices.. and for 3 , its very easy and simple to use for an app with such complexity.. so a meaningful great job. And hopefully more good works to come .. thanks Google 🙂😏😎 🙄 you are definitely Cool.
