App Reviews

  • Almost the perfect photo storage app!

    By Beth in Tn
    With just one or two tweaks this could be the perfect way to store photos. I love the feature where it shows you photos from this date in the past. I like the fact that the photos are organized by the date they were taken, not the date you uploaded them. This takes out the step of trying to organize the photos in the correct order. The fact that this app has unlimited storage with your prime membership is such a great value and saves so much money. But where the app falls a wee bit short, is in these ways. 1. It doesn’t tell you if you are uploading a duplicate photo. 2. There is no way to rotate the photos in the app. You have to download the photo, rotate and edit it in another app, then upload to this app. 3. When you make an album, you can’t remove the photo from the main part. So you have duplicates. At least let the people who don’t want numerous copies of the same photo delete them from the main list. But it is all in all great app and I will continue to use it. None of the issues are a deal breaker. I think if you try this app, you will like it.
  • Still have to use iCloud

    By Yuls24
    * Review updated I started using the app after several days which were necessary to upload all the photos from my phone. There are definitely nice features. I like that the app offers you to look at the pics that were taken on the same day previous years. My biggest disappointment, however, is that the app backs up pictures as soon as they are taken (if wi-fi is available) and doesn’t update them if they are being edited. I take quite a few pics a day and, at the end of it, I edit the best of them. If they were baked up some time earlier in the day, they remain unchanged. I was hoping that Prime Photo could be a free (well, I pay for prime either way) substitute of iCloud, but, unfortunately, it can’t. As soon as I get a new phone, am I supposed to edit a couple thousand pics again?! *** I haven’t really started using the app yet, but I’m already frustrated. I have lots of pictures on my phone - around 8 thousand. I know it takes time to copy/back them up, but not that much! The app was running a few hours at night and several hours in the morning, it managed to back up only a half! My phone barely works when it’s running and they want you to keep the app open for it to work faster which means I can’t use my phone at all. I stopped myself from deleting the app several times already. I hope in a few days it’s gonna download all the pics so I could finally check out all the features.
  • Impressive App; Needs 1 fix

    By SushiCamiChar
    One thing would make this a 5 star review: Would love it if the picture was removed from the main photos page when you add it to an album. OR at least, the app needs to clearly show if the picture has been added to an album. Currently, there is no way to know which pictures I have placed in albums. This is very annoying when you have a thousand pictures to organize. Otherwise, love the unlimited storage of the ORIGINAL PICTURE SIZE with Prime membership!!! It’s TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I’m just waiting for them to take that away (please don’t take it away). Was using paid Dropbox, but I don’t have enough room to upload at original pic size (although Dropbox gives you a lot of storage, pictures are large!). This is a wonderful membership perk and well worth it!
  • Hard to complain when it’s free

    By Bjc1234
    I shoot a lot of pictures so I need a lot of back up space. The unlimited space provided by this app provides an additional piece of mind for all my shots. The interface is a bit clunky and is a major memory hog. The other issue I have encountered is that it is no longer recognizing my canon raw files after processing them through Lightroom (CR2 files). The problem just started in the last month so I am not sure the issue. However this would be a major negative if it can’t store canon raw files. It’s by no means perfect. The information and instruction on use is lacking which in my case lead to a major error. In one case, I eliminated a folder on prime, only to discover that that action also deleted the original file on the hard drive. Luckily I had the raw files still on the memory card. In summary, if you are a prime member, you should absolutely use it. It’s another way to back up your pics at no cost. However if I had to pay for the service, I don’t think I would, at least not with current functionality. In conclusion, I feel like an ingrate complaining about a free service that I am using! From a value perspective, I rate it 4 out of 5.
  • Life Journaling

    By Neigh23456
    I couldn’t be more please with this app. I have used this for at least three years. Probably longer but who can keep track of time without the use of this continued way to store my memories all in one place. I find it most helpful to keep my photos on my phone to a minimum as I can just download them and sort all in one place. One of the things I find beneficial is the suggested sorting and folders as I am one who procrastinates and has spent little sorting my photos to date but I am pleased to know that I can look at all of my photos in one place and have them sorted by the date taken first and then have the options to personalize the photos from my home computing system at my earliest convenience. What do you think of this app?
  • Great start, but not complete

    By NicktheRosh
    I love being able to store all of my photos here as a Prime member, but this app and the web interface seem clunky and unpolished and it is missing some features that google photos and Apple photos have already. The facial recognition is great, but there is currently no way to manually fix incorrect face matches so if two people look similar it groups them together and there’s no way to fix it. It would also be nice to fix or manually adjust the “things” tags as well, but not as important as faces. I’m glad there’s a way to fix an incorrect date/time for a photo, but you have to do it one by one and the interface is clunky. Not exactly a smooth experience using this service, but unlimited storage is great.
  • Essential features missing

    By Elwood_37
    This is almost a great program. However, it falls short in a number of crucial ways. Firstly, there is no way to correct the many mistakes the facial recognition software makes. When it fails to recognize that an image contains a person, I can’t manually tag it. What’s worse, it frequently misidentifies two or three people as being the same person, and there’s no way to manually disambiguate. This is an essential function that must be added, and which competitor programs already have. Frustratingly, the facial recognition 'People' folders index only the photos uploaded by your own account. They leave out all the photos of the same people in the family vault. So it’s not a very useful compilation of all the photos of somebody. Thirdly, while this app allows manual album creation, your albums are stored only on your own account, and are not visible to anyone you add to your family vault. It’d be a huge bonus to be able to share albums with your family members. I’d also really appreciate being able to rotate a photo right in my account, without having to download it to my device, rotate it in a separate program, and re-upload it to prime photo all over again. With a few fixes, this can be an excellent photo storage program.
  • Best cloud app

    By Jaii7875
    That’s a true statement, let me tell you why. All the other photo clouds tell you that they saving us disk space by backing up our photos and saving them all in their clouds. Not true! They copy our photos , but when we erase our original photos from our devices they also get deleted from the clouds. They are not supposed to be just copying our photos, they are supposed to be saving them after we delete them from our devices. Otherwise where are we saving any space on our devices? This is the only one that I found that actually lets you delete photos from your devices and safely saves your originals. Therefore actually freeing up our disk space. Great app!
  • A great alternative for extra storage

    By Kricket35077
    With a prime membership this app is included, it has lots of storage space, but lacks in keeping up with recent photos. I have my photos in this app to scroll across my tv screen as a screen saver and I have seen photos pop up that I do not have anymore and had forgotten all about, they are very random. In which it is nice to see surprise photos but I’m more concerned with recent photos I have taken and they are there floating around in space somewhere. It is good to have for a extra backup, especially when my iPhone is constantly telling me to pay more for storage, not this gal, I will use other apps to save my photos that I can access anytime similar to this app. All in all I would recommend it
  • Needs some work.

    By gpelican58
    I like the program overall so don’t get me wrong. I like that it can recognize faces and place those photos under the correct person you have named. The problem is that every once in a while it places the wrong photo under the wrong person. That in itself is not the issue as no software is full-proof in this regard and it is to be expected. The issue stems from the fact that that once this happens, you have NO way of moving that photo to the appropriate person’s folder and can be quite frustrating. If I’m missing something here, I would appreciate some hints on how to correct but till then that flaws appears to be this app’s Achilles heel. I would have given it a higher rating to be sure if not for this serious shortcoming!
