allaababyy - Great app!
Such an amazing app!!! Only cons i can even think of which I really shouldn’t consider cons, but I’ll mention them anyways is I wish I could have THE OPTION to sort my photos the way they are in the photos app that comes with the iPhone and the fact that there is no like premade albums for your photos and then one specifically for your videos and then just a separate one for them both, which is what they have now, them combined. I get that you can make your own albums and do that yourself but that takes time..... especially when you have a ton of photos!! But ya if it could have the option -just like the iPhone photos app again.... haha but yeah this app saves me soooo much storage!!! Especially if you have a prime account! It would also be amazing if they could add a feature to help you delete any duplicates of photos, I know they’ll tell you if you’ve already uploaded a specific photo onto the app already if you’re trying to re-upload it by accident or whatever, but sometimes the same picture gets uploaded by a different phone.
LunaVolt - storage could've improved since the photobucket days
k Its been real helpful so im sharing my thoughts, Ive been moving plenty since I was 15 y/o and I tried to keep storing on different platforms, and still the softwares seem to not take in account that is really thin percentage of world population that can afford the devices and web speed that u need to navigate all the options for this function of the internet(storage) desides thst. yeah it is a tiny bit less frustrating than apple and clud n so on. also remember that if you get account canceled ull lose ur stuff, but u can share a family vault so u got a backup and also two account with prime so u do get a sorta sense of privacy wich is pretty good. so yeah four stars.
WoodyKib2000 - Great app. Needs a couple of changes though...
In albums there should be a feature where you can change your most recent uploaded pictures to be at the top on the album. It used to be this way. It has changed. Now all my recent pictures are at the bottom in the albums I’ve created and its a pain to scroll down 200 pics all the way to the bottom to see if I added it to the album. Please change this feature or at least add a feature for date taken or uploaded within the albums created. I know there is a feature like this under all the pictures taken but not in the albums. Please add this feature. Also, I’ve noticed when I add an article that I have screen shotted with my phone and add it to my albums of saved articles, it uploads in the album backwards. I get the last page of the article 1st in the album instead of last. The first page is at the bottom, not at the top. This feature definitely needs to be changed.
CiaraSebecke - Love this - Please add multi-select option!!
As a photographer I love that this allows me to store high quality RAW files from the camera without having to pay for expensive cloud storage outside of my Prime membership!! Really awesome as other services do not store the full quality images. I also love the faces features and ability to search by what’s in the picture.
I edit most of my photos on iPad so its great as I can just import them from camera and back them up here and my hard drive.
There is ONE THING that is super annoying and should be fixed- the ability to multi select or select all. I dont want to back up every single item in my photos just the RAW photos and edited versions. So I have to manually select each photo which is so many when I do a shoot with 400 images for example. If I could hold and drag to multi-select or create albums in iPhone photos and choose “select all” it would make using this app a million times easier.
Yuls24 - Still have to use iCloud
* 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.
stclair77 - Solid mediocrity
So far, it is difficult for me to properly rate the app. I have been trying to back my photos up for a couple of days. I have just over 12,000. I left the app open overnight last night and woke up with 491 photos remaining to back up. I needed to send a quick text message, so I switched over to messaging, sent my message and promptly returned to the photo app. The count went back up to over 12,000 and the app now is “checking for backup”, counting down in the same fashion as when I started the process last night. As an added service to something I already pay for (Prime), it’s tough to complain but it isn’t doing what I need it to yet, so I need to maintain middle ground until I have some indication that it will ever back up my photos. It doesn’t do any background uploading, wifi or not, and I can’t just leave the app open all day. Each time I go back into it now, it starts over.
Jsanch224 - Only a few minutes and bugs are showing
I’ve only use the app literally like 15 minutes and I am so furious with this app. You’d think something with great ratings will be good but I am so disappointed. Let me tell you why.
1st as I was trying to upload photo for my Echo Show, the app decided it had to notify me through mid selection that it needed to update.. I lost my progress of selecting 30 photos.. okay no biggie I can reselect it.
After it did what it did, I tried to reselect the same photo.. well where is the upload section? It’s hidden in settings.. why is this the location for such an important function? I had to google where it was FYI.
Upon finding the upload section, I can’t access my favorites... at this point I’m starting to pull my hair. Desperately trying to get my favorites folder to show up, I close the app, delete some folders in my photos app, and kept trying to find a solution. To my surprise.. nothing worked.
At this point I am desperate to add photos to my echo show because I have a party to host.. so here I am selecting photos with over 11k photos without a way to narrow it down...
But the last thing, the very last thing that is making me frustrated.. is how much the scrolling jumps.. I’d be scrolling then all the sudden it jumps all the way down near below the center of photos.. this happened at least 4 times, until I need to write this review. I’m done with this app. Complete disappointment. ughhh I am so frustrated..
SushiCamiChar - Impressive App; Needs 1 fix
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!
Bjc1234 - Hard to complain when it’s free
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.
Casual skeptic - Comvenient And Easy To Use
I use prime photos to back up all my photos from all devices. This app makes it easy to view my whole library from my phone or iPad. It is also very simple to upload photos directly from my devices. Several years ago there was a sync function on the app version of prime photos that could make it easy to accidentally delete pictures from prime photos when you deleted them from your phone. That sync feature, as far as i can tell, has been removed from the app, so you can use prime as a simple backup rather than a mirrored drive like iCloud or 365. The sync version still exists when accessing prime photos through your browser, such as you would on your computer, but even there i turned it off.
Crazy71234 - Great app til recent update, keep accidentally adding favorites to whole albums as I make an album
I really love your app except two things...one is a long-standing complaint, that exif info including time&date&location, does download with pictures. The second is a new development since recent update. The “add to favorites” is right above the “add to album” tab. I’ve been careful only to hit add to album, and for some reason, it makes the whole album “add to favorites” and I can’t figure out how to remove that designation for one photo, let along a newly created album that has over 1,000 photos&videos...also, why isn’t the “add to album” on the top but you put it on the bottom? I don’t know who designed this specific change, but it’s not user friendly, especially it adding yo favorites when I’ve been careful to ensure I hit only “add to albums”. Please fix.
Jinni9141 - What a great thing.
I am in my 70s and realized that I had so many online photos between my phone, computer and tablet and I knew I should move them to a flash drive or something for my family but dreaded how long it was going to take me. Then I learned about this program. It is so easy because it does all the work. You don’t have to sit there saving pictures from one source to another. I told it to save the pictures that were on my tablet and within minutes it saved over 1000 pictures while I watched a movie. It adds any new pictures you take them automatically and you can edit pictures you have duplicates of etc. I think you’ll love it.
Jaii7875 - Best cloud app
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!
Kricket35077 - A great alternative for extra storage
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
treugnhipe - Love this App
I love the ease of use, the features offered have wonderful quality and as above are again easy and fun. I like that it backs up when you open it...and theirs so many ways to organize photos and videos and many options of what to do with them. Size of storage is reasonable and I have so many gigabytes of media not even close to maximum and I’m in the double digits. I do wish that when you’re uploading a lot of photos and such that you could do other things. Apparently you have to leave the application open for uploading. But the WONDERFUL QUALITIES of the app make up for it undoubtedly. I love this app and DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WHO LOVES PHOTOS AND VIDEOS AND NEEDS A NO FUSS PLACE TO STORE THEM!!! Kid friendly...
Elwood_37 - Essential features missing
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.
FoodForThought! - Good, but needs work,
Overall, this is a pretty good photo app for those looking for an alternative photo App, which also contains decent editing and storage features. It does have annoying aspects to it as well, such as not being able to default to a selected Album, nor the ability to lock individual Albums. (Unless all pics are placed in the Hidden Photos section, which somewhat defeats the purpose) A few annoying bugs when it comes to storage or organization. E.g..Pics selected as Album covers are lost the moment you move new photos into that particular albums. Tech support is a little disappointing. Quick to respond, however not quite attentive to questions, issues or problem solving. Kinda felt like Robo Support. My suggestion would be to try before you buy!
Tvasilik - BEST app to backup photos!
This is the best app I’ve ever used to backup my photos. I take about 10-20 pictures every single time I’m taking a photo. I also take tons of worthless screenshots. By using this app to backup my photos I’m able to keep every single one archived and then keep my photo library on my iPhone cleared out. The initial backup took about a day. I had 31,000 pictures. Excessive I know! But now it takes only a minute per day to backup the new stuff. Love love love! I hate backing up with iCloud and tech support suggested google photos as an alternative. I hated that app. It also doesn’t keep the pictures full resolution. Try this out, you won’t be disappointed!
Obsessive Consultive - No worry no cost photo archive
I’m a hoarder. A digital hoarder. I have files from the early days of DOS I don’t throw out. So pictures yeah I have a few. A few thousand. I have filled up 3- 20 Tb drives-yes terabyte. Don’t judge me. I keep seagate paying those fat dividends. So the idea of being able to archive all my photos in the cloud for free-I’m in. Easy and mostly automatic uploads. Easy to browse. Kind of fun blasts from the past. As I am still not over the loss of thousands of pictures from an accidental repartition if a 20TB vault a year ago ( deep deep sob) this is a balm on my damaged psyche. Privacy? Over rated. If somebody wants to browse my dogs and trips to Europe and secret prototype robots ( ok not the robots) then it’s fine.
Sir3nsong - Easy to use, but lacking some features
I really appreciate the ability to easily backup my photos. I also like the idea of it recognizing people; however that feature definitely needs work. The app routinely ‘recognizes’ non-facial things as people. If I go in manually and remove whatever name it has attributed it to, it simply chooses another person. There really needs to be a way to tell it that isn’t a person. I would also love a way to categorize photos by subject matter (places, pets, etc), so I could easily find a photo I was looking for. Most other apps I’ve used have these abilities. All that being said, I can’t complain too much, as it’s unlimited photo storage and comes included with Prime.
Wealth Creation - App times out often ...
I wasn’t even aware that I had this feature from Prime which is a cost saver & bonus. I use an iPhone that really needed more space so I just wanted to store them easily rather that purchase additional cloud space. This task became so laborious. My app timed out several times. It really could not cope with uploading, verifying & deleting more than 50 pics at a time. I went to bed leaving it to upload only to become more confused as to which pictures I could delete off iPhone🙁. I’m still doing it 3 weeks later because it keeps timing out. So now I have to keep going back & forth between app & pics b4 deleting. As one reviewer commented “it’s FREE”. Oh, I forgot, the above comments does not include uploading videos. I am too scared to start if pics took so long.
gpelican58 - Needs some work.
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!
emyopdx - Really really great photo storage but...
This app works wonderfully 90% of the time. Open it up, it automatically scans phone and saves all photos and videos, then you have great access to your entire library wherever you go! However every once in awhile it will get stuck. Like really really stuck. Will need to delete app and re-download. This is an excruciating process because then it needs to scan the whole photo library again. Another issue is it will "miss" videos (usually not photos) in the auto scan that you will have to manually upload. Overall I love the ease and functionality. My husband and I log onto the same account and can see all our pics in one place.
DeeQb - Keeps all your photos safe
This app keeps all your photos safe by uploading them to the cloud so that if your device is lost or destroyed, you won’t lose them. Your photos are available through the app at any time you have connectivity, so you can access ALL your photos from your phone at any time without using up your storage space. My favorite features are the automatic upload from both my phone and desktop, and the ability to search by person, subject (like “dogs”) or date. I would like for it to be easier to save a set of pictures to a folder or album on my device
ALGP081613 - GOOD BUT NOT THE GREATEST
decent quality prints . . . invites arrived a day earlier than expected, but overnight delivery cost nearly 1/2 the cost of the purchased product, and the difference of one day made ALL of the difference without knowing what time to expect the delivery . . . I wasn’t particularly thrilled that the invites were only sold by increments of 25, and disappointed that I was short shipped [received fewer than 25] upon arrival. The convenience of the service seemed attractive to me when I started the project, but I think I expected the turn around to be a little faster since I took care of the “type-setting.”
I would use the service again but do realize that I would need to start any project well in advance . . . with the understanding that card designs and layouts are limited . . .
bob423 - Great app
I have all my photos stored in the cloud with this app. It syncs without a problem with my desktop and I can access all the photos with any device - very handy.
Recognition of faces and objects is is a key feature for organizing photos and for finding that one photo you’re looking for.
Only one thing is missing - file structure. The folders need to be organized to replicate the file folders on the PC. There needs to be folders and sub-folders. Otherwise it’s hard to find the one folder labeled, “cropped” when it could be a subfolder of Bob or Tom or Vacation, e.g. All the “cropped” folders are bunched together and you can’t tell them apart without looking. Fix that and it’s a 5 star product!!
D-n-V - Love it!
Amazon/Prime photos is fantastic! It’s unlimited photo storage with customizable settings.
I have my account set to automatically sync every time I open the app while on Wi-Fi. Pictures sync on all of my devices, as well as my wife’s, allowing us to retrieve photos anywhere there is Wi-Fi connection. This includes viewing them on TV (smart TV).
This also allows me to share with other family members. Although video storage is not unlimited, the space is still significant enough for us to record our childrens middle school/high school concerts and send & share with family living out of state.
Nurse that Sings - Not Quite There
You have so many well-written reviews by people that value this app, but also have valuable suggestions as to how to make it better. Have you paid attention to your customers and taken note of their critiques? Many of them have already mentioned things I would change and those reviews are from months ago. Right now, my biggest issue is the time it takes to download my photos. I will keep using it because the storage is free with prime. I would suggest listening to your customers in order to make this a better app and you might actually get more customers that don’t just use it because it’s free with prime. 🤷🏼♀️ Just sayin’.
morfit - Almost Perfect Photo App
Great value all around for Prime Members. Two problems keep it from being my go to photos app (Google photos still has it beat unfortunately) 1) It needs to work in the background to auto upload photos...don’t understand why it can’t because Google photos does perfectly 2) In order to make Family Vault work we need to absolutely be able to see each other’s people tags and places otherwise it is half a solution (or at least make that an option to check off if privacy is a concern). Right now only I can see the people tags for my photos and wife can only see hers in our own accounts and not in the Family Vault.
Taintedheart - Life saver
I love having the ability to share with family, having everyone’s first grandchildren and twins. I was always having to send so many texts and emails. Now I can send out one group texts to check the app. Family can buy their own prints or whatever other custom item they want. They one reason I would give it four stars and not five would be, my husband and I share the same account so that we have each other’s pics and their is some lag on my iPhone vs his Samsun. He can instantly see my downloads but it takes a bit longer for me to see on my phone his adds even though if I go on his phone I can clearly see them their.
David in LA - Excellent - now works with Live Photo’s, too
This is an excellent way to back up your iPhone photos, which will otherwise quickly eat up your 5GB cap on free iCloud storage.
I suggest setting automatic backup of pictures BUT NOT videos, as videos count against your 5 GB cap on free storage. Not so your still pictures, or even Live Photo’s! Save individual videos to Prime Photos to manage that 5GB cap.
Back up is not automatic; you have to have the Prime Photo app active on your phone, and “Auto-Save” enabled in settings, for the backup to take place. Again, in settings, I suggest you keep the “Videos” switch (for auto-save) set to off.
Photos can easily be moved to an album and filtered by date; the date of a photo (say, that you download from something someone else posted) can be edited to match the date of the event. The only major feature missing is the ability to add a short caption to a specific photo in your collection or album.
User8K! - Lightroom Doesn’t Recognize iPhone photos in Prime
After I turned on Prime Photos on my phone, I connected my iPhone to my computer and tried to import my photos into Lightroom. Lightroom did not recognize any of the photos for import that had copies saved in Prime Photos. It was like my phone was empty, even though my photos still show on my phone. So, while Prime Photos sounds like a great idea for cloud storage, it will screw up any photographer’s workflow who uses Lightroom. Now I’m trying to find instructions for downloading my photos from Prime to my computer, so I can import them in Lightroom. All kinds of tips on putting photos into Prime, but still looking for how to retrieve the full res copies. That should be a basic function of cloud storage: retrieving your photos from the cloud.
Lovelyreading11135 - Unable to move complete folders to app
Unable to transfer a previous folder directly to the app. It has the ability to sort the photos by the date taken, whether or not there are people in the photos etc. But for some reason if you have an album created on it, it does not recognize it. Therefore the ONLY way to recreate an existing album is to manually add every single photo individually. Which in some cases is almost an impossible tasking, sifting through thousands of photos to recreate something that already exists and can be transferred by a click if they enabled that function. It seems like a simple tool as most photo apps sort the photos by the albums they’re already in, not the current date. Also the app does not save the photos when it is not open.
PJ Lawrence - Great way to back up photos!
I love this app as a secondary backup for my photos. However, due to the limitation on video (all non-photo files in fact) space, I still need another backup method and keep another copy at home on my hard drive. In addition, I wish this app would not rename all of my files with completely different and very long names! I understand the need to avoid duplicate file names caused by the standard systems used on devices, but it would really be nice if the original IMG-xxxx name could be kept with just a short addition to make it unique. This is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 on my rating.
donaldsonh - I like the storage- wish it was more versatile
I like that all my pics are instantly backed up and stored and I never have to worry about losing them. I do wish you could order prints and i wish searching for a specific pic was easier. Also, it seems to take longer for my pics to download to prime photos than my other photo app, in which pics are instantly dropped in. I got the prime photo app so I could access the photos instantly from anywhere as long as I was on my prime account, but i haven’t been able to figure that out yet. All in all, I have better luck with my other photo app- i just keep this app for extra back up for my photos and for video storage
SusieQ 71561 - EXCELLENT
I have never used an app that has had the capabilities to keep all my photos thru my many different changes of iPhones, computers and iPads. I don't have to save to cloud it must do it automatically . I would love to purchase one of the albums but never seem to have the time to organize my thoughts but that is a great option also . Also other ones that if you take a quick look you will see they have several different things to choose from. Updates seem to be done on a pretty good frequency which I like also.
As de corazones - Could be so much better
I have found Prime Photos incredibly frustrating to use, for the following reasons:
1. It offers the ability to place photos in albums, but there is no way to click on a given photo and quickly check what, if any, albums it already belongs to. You have to go to the album and look through it to check. This makes the album feature useless as far as I'm concerned.
2. I have not been able to set this app to automatically back up photos in external storage on my phone. Apparently the automatic backup feature only works if you save your photos to internal storage.
I like that Prime Photos provides unlimited cloud backup, but as a photo management app it has some serious deficiencies. I will come back and give it five stars if they are fixed.
JMS1 - Great extra backup with Prim free photo
Nice belt and suspenders backup for camera roll and in between manual backup syncs to local storage.
I don’t pay for the iCloud photos backup due to a 1.5 Tb library of Raw photos from DSLR’s and videos from iPhone. The time between manual syncs leaves a gap of potentially lost data in case of damaged or lost phone. So, letting this app pickup the captures in between is value added piece of mind. Plus the extra screen captures and daily snaps of deposits or grocery lists don’t need to be saved in the roll once this is synced but can be useful if needed later.
LovaTkay - Great App but needs a little more tweaks!!
This is a great app considering now more than ever we take photos of everything. With that being said the unlimited amount of photos that can be uploaded is as plus+++++. However, the time it takes for them to upload isn't as great. Also I'd like the idea of not having to have the app open in order for them to upload, that prevents me from multitasking which is a major minus-----. Also, it would be nice if the app once downloaded and recognize the faces of the ppl we have already set to a folder, would go to that folder automatically if that photo is a single of that person. Other than that this is a great app!!!
Joe.a.m - Wonderful unlimited storage for photos
This Is the primary storage for all of My family’s photos across phones, cameras, and computers. Seamless automatic uploads, Flexibility with downloads including full native resolution that photos were taken (alternative services like Shutterfly do not let you download the native resolution of the photos in order to force you to order prints through them). Finally it syncs across devices quickly, So I can take a photo on my SLR camera on loaded on my computer and sync the photos to my phone in a matter of minutes.
Odder_or - Only 4 Stars For One Reason...
I love this app and the services that it offers. I appreciate that it exists and provides a reliable, unlimited, user friendly way to back up pictures. The one and only reason it is not 5 stars for me is that I would like to have a setting that keeps the uploading priority highest, even when I only have the app going in the background. Alternatively or in addition I would like to have a setting option that allows my phone to automatically upload my photos in the middle of the night, when by bandwidth is less taxed and in demand. In my area DSL is the fastest connection available, and since I often do not remember to turn on the Prime Photos App, often times when I am uploading it is hundreds (or thousands!) of photos at a time.
So to recap through all those run on sentences; Dear Prime PTB,
• A priority setting re: upload speed while the App is in the background
• An automatic scheduled upload/backup option
Welch Famiy - 6 - It’s a nobrainer.
If you’re already paying for prime the real question is, “Why won’t you?” Easily downloads all your photos. Not difficult to access them. Not sure if there is some degradation of quality but if you’re concerned about that you prolly should be keep them backed up on your own media. For my purposes it works great. Love it. We have over 23,000 pictures that were on a single drive. I was always afraid that we might lose them. Now they are all safe and I still have my original drive with them. Perfect!
Imkevinberry - Excited to see where this goes
I use to have folders and folders of photos saved to a computer desktop growing up. Times are changing and I don’t have time to sit down and upload them to my laptop anymore. While it’s nice to still have that option, being able to upload photos on-the-go is a lot more desirable. And my photos can stay somewhere safe rather than on my phone.
The app is nice and clean. Easy to navigate. Does the job I was expecting. I do have one suggestion though regarding photo organization.
Would there ever be a consideration to allow sub-albums inside of albums? For example: An album called “Vacations”, and inside that album could be other albums like “Disneyland 2018”, “New York 2019”, “Bahamas Cruise 2020”, etc. That way I can more easily navigate which folders I want to get to. I’ll know my vacation photos are in one album, hiking photos in another, work events in another, and so on.
So far I’m enjoying the app.
Goodstuffbutappcrashes - Alloowas you to keep your memories
Love having this app although I’ve had to remove it and add it back again to keep working correctly. Samsung doesn’t have this problem, which is my only complaint. They got better about using cellular data finally. This was our biggest issue with a family divided between apple and Samsung. If you have problems downloading your pics, just delete the app, and try again. Takes a bit going through pics, but gets it right after that. Have the same issue, do it again. Hopefully, the developers will get it right.
DDBCA - Great app for use with iPhone and iPad
I have been pretty impressed with the ease of use of the app. I have had no problems with syncing between the app, the “I” products and my Windows computer. The photos transfer very quickly. My only issue was with my videos filling up the allotted space. I know there is a fix for this but I haven’t had the opportunity to check it out yet. I purchased more space but for Prime users the price is right. I used to use Google Photos and dropped them to take advantage of this app.
mfalco11 - Eases the worry of losing pictures!
We have a 6 month old and I nearly lost all of her pictures. Thankfully I didn’t, but I starting looking for something to back up everything. This is perfect!!! It reminds me when anything hasn’t been uploaded (in a non annoying way) and the photo storage is so far truly unlimited. It automatically organizes everything and even shows you daily memories! My only complaint is I really wish it had more video storage, but the photo storage is incredible!
morgannw22 - 10/10 Recommend
I was looking for an app that I could store my pictures and videos from my phone to upload quickly. I had way over 1,000 something pictures and videos. Not only did they upload, but each file was backed up as well. It’s really easy to navigate weather it’s through the app, or via website, and you’re allowed to divide everything into albums to make everything easier. I love this better than Dropbox or Google Drive!
TeddyP55 - Great App
Worked really good with the app on the TV. As long as you have good WiFi or data connection it uploads pretty quick. I like the fact that you can choose to hide certain pictures so people can’t see them without the pin or password. Easy to use, works well . You can choose whether or not to upload photos automatically or to only send certain ones if your using the app on your smart TV or Firestick or whatever. Really great editing system as well. Definitely a 5 out of 5
xdxdwalmart - Good but the dates are completely off.
The fact that there would bea app were you could relive your memories as kids or of you or of your kids is great. The whole central idea around is great, any picture you take goes straight to the cloud which they should fix. Also the dates are off because for me it says it’s 2037😂. This could be annoying because you would want to remember these exact days and there date. Overall this app is great for the family and I highly recommend it.
🐘EllaPhant🐘 - Great app!
This app is a really great way to store photos. I was running out of storage space on my phone (mostly from pictures) so I uploaded them into prime photos and deleted them off the camera roll. I also really love that you can look at pictures from this day in the past; it’s super cool!
I do have a few ways you could make this app even better though: it would be great if you could choose your own faces to add instead of labeling the ones they give you, and it would be great if you could actually take photos on the app. Thanks and I really love this app!

bambi_1319 - Works well, reasonable device price
I wish it auto uploaded when the app was closed via iOS settings or something though. Otherwise it’s really good.
mumofzak - No worries
I use this and Google photos is I have 2 backups and will never lose photos again after Apple cloud deleted my photos and I couldn’t get them back.
DrSmash - Good way to share photos with family
Clintongould27 - Photo only
Only photo no video from iPhone camera video or photos
shivaneiker - Great app.
Waiting for the unlimited uploads option the US enjoys. Good to have the ability to view it on the Echo devices.
ChittethuSojan - Great experience
Thank you for making this
mithunedula - Great place to store pictures
Quite happy with the service.
bobbywaymack - Easy to use
Better than most
Allensimmo - Good Photo Ap
I wanted a safe ap to back up my photos. It does that and a bit more. Well priced. Good, reliable company.
😍😀🤪 - Great and easy way to share pics
Great with Firestick for slide shows on TV
Anth and Kel - Solid photo storage
Unlimited storage for family photos and videos is good. It would be great to have extra features such as rating and tagging photos.
Lampels - Love it
I ve been using it for a while an loved it.
Kasspianna - Great app!
Just nowhere near enough storage space...
Gazza666555444 - Storage Space
Wondering when the Australian version catches up with the rest of the world to increase storage for photos.
Adelaide24X7 - ITGALORE
Utilise it for our business , its simple and effective
Asanka Jayawardena - Value for money
artist55612 - Not included with prime
Unlimited photo storage is included with prime in the US- why isn’t it in Australia?

Xinimase - Unlimited photo only for US!!!!
Unlimited photo only for US!!!!
natty-aus - Love it
Pegger99 - Stay away
What started out as a reasonably good app has been updated into a nightmare. Don't waste your time and energy or money. I've been a loyal avid user for 2 months but the ugly truth has been revealed to me. Don't trust your photos to them, you lose all rights to your privacy and your photos by agreeing to their terms. Their conditions change on a whim without notice and with the new app and no upload button you must succumb to syncing your entire library or nothing at all. You can't even view your pics properly now because of the newly introduced shading and I tried to ignore that the app constantly crashes but really, it's ridiculous. And then they try to charge you 60 usd per annum when it was supposed to be free. Very dishonest. Run!
Maghts - Fantastic app!
I am very impressed with this app, it has enabled me to save all of my precious memories somewhere safe and free up space on my phone. It is very easy to use and set up. Highly recommend!!
lin.zheng - Bad update
Can't scroll to photos of a certain time and see which photo/ video are being uploaded like the older version. Being able to select what to upload is good, but I want to see which ones are uploaded already when selecting.
Like the older version better.
gsolon - Solid photo and video storage
Not as many features as other apps, but a solid offering with good storage options at very competitive rates.
Jaxboy18 - Great replacement for Carousel
Moving from Dropbox to Amazon for cloud storage and this app is the perfect replacement for Dropbox's Carousel app. Has nearly all the same features except for background uploading - this is very important so I can set and forget.
I'd also recommend an ability to make and manage photo albums via the website.
Interpolated fissure - Nice work
Very happy with the categorization features, I can only guess they will get better.
Pen pen2013 - Peace of mind
I know whatever happens, my photos are safe and accessible by using this app.
Aussie_Dave60 - Needs a Little Improvement
Nice interface could be a little more functional or plugins to do minor editing. Overall happy storing photo somewhere else apart from Apple.
Lord Hamish - Slow, slow, slow uploads for Australian users.
Terrible. Completely and utterly terrible. To upload less than 10 GIGS worth of photo's has taken days. Not sure whether it's because I'm in Australia and the servers are terrible here? But a disgrace. I even paid for extra storage. Avoid.
Mickgibbo - Constant Crashes
I have a large amount of photos in the cloud and this app constantly crashes. Reinstalled several times to no avail. The initial sync was taking 10 hours.
IJL77 - Not as good as Dropbox
It is a shame you are restricted to photos only. You cannot organise your photos on your phone with more than one level of folders either.
Mongeee - A little crashy
So this version is a little "crashy", have been able to use it once now cannot open it without it simply disappearing.
chaosboi - Add RAW file preview
If you have a lot of RAW files then forget this app, there is no support for RAW preview. Please include RAF (fujifilm) if previews implemented.
igasgeek - Useless
After update app lost most of functionality and became useless.
robro23 - Amazon Photos
Rowdy2026 - Amazon Hates Australians
Considering Amazon includes unlimited cloud space to anyone outside Australia and that products from the Amazon store quadruple if you live inside Australia, why would anyone tru blu Aussie support this arrogant US trash?
kaled1 - Photos
I love it thank you Amazon
Chris mum - amazon photos
i love it
dirtymouse - Not as robust as the Flickr app
It’s ok, but no where near as robust as the Flickr app. When scrolling through albums with 2000-3000 photos it’s Keep refreshing whilst scrolling and loading photos erratically and randomly taking you back to the start. My cache is set to 2gb and that makes no difference. Fix this and I would give it five stars.
Braveheart86 - False Advertising
States that Prime members get unlimited storage, untrue as previously pointed out. Australian Prime subscribers get the default non prime 5GB storage, does anyone in Amazon actually consider how Aussies would view having a reduced set of benefits (-despite the current reduced cost), not to mention the time we waste installing the app and kicking off a very slow upload process only to hit an unexpected 5GB limit...grr. Took 20 minutes on a call to Amazon before your support were able to clarify the issue, says quite a lot about how this market is viewed (-very sad after so many years of great Amazon service and benefits in the UK). Time to cancel my Prime subscription.
Toonman88 - Not all features available
Prime photos family vault not available in Australia, not advertised or available anywhere on amazon .. deceptive
Pegger99 - The best thank you Amazon
After spending an entire day checking out all the options, I see that Amazon thinks like I do. Great job Amazon!!! Keep improving you're on the right track! So easy to use and I love being able to select only the images I want to back up and set up folders. Google photos actually adds sharpening to your photos to make themselves look better!!! I don't want sharpening and I don't want my files altered thank you very much. Not sure what all the complaints are in these reviews. Obviously nothing better to do than conplain about a GREAT service. Yes it has crashed once on me but no big deal I opened it up again. It happens with any app from time to time. Upload is fast from Australia. No silly pixel limit on file size or altering my files or complicating and integrating to the point I fear ppl will see all my private images, it's just so perfectly simple and well laid out. This is what I've been looking for. Please don't change!!! Just maybe add raw preview and tell me what lens and focal length I shot with but I'm already happy as Larry seeing pixel dimensions (exceeding 2300 px on the wide so far, can't wait to back up real images). People have to be realistic complaining that it took a week to back up 30 gigs come on! Just back up your most precious photos that you couldn't live without and I bet you'd have a hard time finding a couple gigs of them. Awesome awesome awesome. Oh! And it access ALL my iPhone folders! Even the ones on the local hard drive!!! Beautiful! Thanks again Amazon.
Trsdy65656 - OK
I like the unlimited storage of Amazon cloud, this app does well uploading photos but really struggles with videos. Everything uploads except any videos more than around 1 minute long I repeatedly get 'network error' I have been trying for weeks to upload these videos, I hoped the new version would fix this but it hasn't.

.ValDyoM77 - So far so good
It has a great interface. I like the way it is set up. Easy to sort and share. I was trying to find easier than google photo or google drive. This is it. We shall see if they decide to charge or if the storage runs out...
TK2944 - Outstanding Photo App
Love the ability to find photos by day, week, month or year.
lpotvin21 - Easy to use
I love the way it’s sorting the pictures per year and you can search per place, person.
Definitely a must!
grizzo19 - Great app! Missing auto-tagging edits.
One of my favorite features is to be able to keep a local copy on your photos on your computer.
The facial recognition and auto-tagging work well, but it would be nice to be able to edit (AI or machine learning) mistakes, such as the wrong person tagged.
jeswah7 - I love the storage
Easy to use. It was easy to transfer all the photos over from iCloud. It took a long time. Save your photos initially to make sure that they’ve all come through. I love it because I can dump the photos off my phone and relieve space and keep them on my phone under Amazon photos!
The only PM - screen saver
Excellent as a screen saver on the smart television!
Aaimal - Super easy.

V080808 - Great app!
Wish they had larger storage for video otherwise simply great.
ABOracle - I like it a lot
In my opinion, Amazon Photos is quite good. Adjusting and correcting images are not exceptional though. Work needs to be done there. Also, GIF images don’t seem to work
NeonGirl909 - Was a great app
This is a great app indeed we have been using it for 2 years, however after update 7.7.0, we can no longer sign in. I enter the password, we get redirected to a message where we have to approve the sign in we hit approve and then it says successful and then we try to sign in again only for a message to appear that tell us there was a problem and we can’t sign in

Toxqui86 - Good app
Not so great to organize your stuff
Boscho2593 - Nostalgic
This app is great! It organizes all you photos for you and you can set it to automatically back them up every day. It’ll also send you a notification every day to look back on the pictures taken on that same date in years past. It’s super handy.

boskoandhoney - Best Photo App!
Love it! All my photos in one app and on all my devices! Option to auto upload! Photos organized by date. Great features like search, filter by type, name, video or photo and by year, and month. Every morning I look forward to opening up the app to the daily “memories” to view photos from several years prior of today’s date! Sharing photos was never easier. And no more maxing out space on my devices! This app hugely simplified managing my photos! So happy I finally got on board!
A guy called Zeph - Great App for forgotten archives
Do recently one of my hard drives went haywire and it seems I’ve lost most of my daughter’s first year pictures. I was upset. However, I’d forgotten that some of my images get backed up automatically on this app. Today I got the notification that there were images from this day a year ago that it wanted me to see. I go on and scroll past dates and there are a lot of the images I lost. Granted they’re lower quality than the originals but they’re there. Love this app for that alone
Eericablondiee - Been a lifesaver!
I seriously am in love with this app! You can set for it to upload when opening the app. The only downfall is that you can’t close the app till it’s done or it will stop the uploading but if you have quick enough WiFi it only takes a minutes. I personally prefer it over icloud for the sake that if I delete the photos from my phone, the items stay in the app and you can have the app downloaded on multiple devices to access the pictures!
LeakyLandy - Cannot control uploads
As others have pointed out, the app uploads photos as soon as they are take but not after they have been edited in your computer or other device. This makes the app pretty useless for anyone who does more than just take snapshots.
It would help if there were just a switch to turn off that auto upload feature. That is not a hard thing to do from an engineering point of view. But, of course, it is possible users will then flip on that switch and start loosing their snapshots. The cries of dismay!
So, I may have to reconsider my cloud storage options. There are no free lunches.
Shelbyluwho - Great App! Love the photo Storage
Absolutely love this app, great way to back up the (way to many) photos I take. Love that it has a shareable feature, my husband takes pictures that I don't, and it's great. Only thing I don't like is that I have to open it and let it sit there to sync up, even though I have that enabled. When doing that, I can't even switch to another screen. It occasionally spazzes out and says that it's uploading -- photos when it's done, but it's a free app, that sorts photos! I can't complain!
semanticunseated - All around great
Unlimited full res photos is an awesome deal for prime members. This is the prime benefit I tell everyone that they have-and-probably-didn’t-know. Besides just storage, it has all main features of Google Photos. I think it might be missing some of the artistic creations though. I also like that you can install and use app without giving permissions to your photos if you want (to just view), Google Photos requires access to local photos or else it won’t even open.
Fun travels - Love it!!
I love being able to have another place to store photos and also easily order prints. The other amazing thing is that I have it as a screensaver for all our TVs in the house with the fire stick. So we get so see our amazing family photos on our big TVs. Waking in a room and seeing my adorable granddaughters photos is better then walking in a room and seeing the television on some stupid commercial! We find ourselves not turning a program on until the slide show is over!! Lol
jstratman - Decent app but constantly nagging
The app itself is reasonably easy to use and reliable, though should offer more control of the uploading process such as selection of which photos rather than mass uploading. The worst part of the app is the huge number of notifications turned on by default, practically taking over my phone. The worst experience of all was the pop up of whether I liked the app or not with only a Yes or No option, freezing my experience in the app until tapping through an annoying series of interactions. I would not have provided a negative review if it were not for this prompt that interrupted my time in the app.
emaliag - Would like to love it
Super convenient to access all my photos and sync all my devices from anywhere with an internet connection but the facial recognition feature needs attention. Currently it is unable to unassociate incorrect facial recognition, unable to tag, and unable to bypass people in the background. The search also works well for the items picture but not for the pictures info such as basic file attributes. So, I really like the app but would like to love it if these features were better developed.
D1V10000 - Best Cloud service for photos!
I love Prime Photos! I use iCloud as well, but don’t feel confident that it’s backing everything up, even though I pay for additional storage. Prime backs up without fail when I open the app and am connected to Wi-Fi. I love the ability to sort and search too, also the ease of downloading and sharing. Very user friendly! I also love the unlimited storage for photos. Hands down, this is the best cloud storage for photos and videos. I highly recommend it!
CaththeCath - Easy and highly functional
I love this app. What an easy way to organize all of my photos! Plus it saves so much room on my phones memory. One thing I’d like to see, is a notification pop up that lets me know I’ve already added a photo to an album. It’s hard to keep track if you do a lot. For instance.. I’m currently undergoing an exterior home reno and created an album. I’m constantly taking pics and can’t keep up whether I added it to album or not. Something like “You’ve already added this to album: RENOVATION”. But regardless.. it’s a great app !!
thr33tw00 - Generally great, but...
I use this for my big storage of photos, but I wish I could save all my videos! I still pay Dropbox for that. My daughter is a singer, so I have every performance of hers saved on video. There isn’t an option to upgrade video storage here, either, which is unfortunate.
Sorting & storing photos is better than it used to be, but searching is a bit clumsy. I have just gotten to where I use this as my “set & forget” backup for photos... it backs up daily & I only use it for photos. I have to manually back up my videos to Dropbox, but at least I have that organized better.
Top score tastic - Prime member must have
It’s not the most elegant photos app, but it integrates well with your Echo Show display and has unlimited free photo backup from your phone. Use it with the 8” Echo Show, the 5” Echo Show is not as good (dark screen, small screen, poor microphone pick up). Wait for a sale on the Echo Show 8” to pair with this, I’ve seen two for one deals on it. The best part is having these photos pop-up on your device so you can relive forgotten memories from years past. If you have years and years of photos this set-up is a delight. My wife loves it ♥️
EJames9029 - Quite close to perfect
I have three sons with very, very similar features, and their sister does as well. The facial recognition of this app was correct about 75% of the time, which you would find incredible if you scrolled through pictures of the 4 of them from birth until today when they are respectively 21, 19, 17 and 14.
My only wish would be for some expanded functionality when accessing this app on a Smart TV, but I’m entirely delighted with this version right now.
pick-mama - Love the ease of saving pictures but printing can be difficult
I spend a lot of time preserving memories and I’m grateful for the ease of saving pictures. However, printing can be frustrating at times. The edit/crop/rotate doesn’t always work. Also there is a check mark in the upper right hand corner and a done in the bottom right corner. There have been times I clicked on “done” thinking it meant I was done with my selection/editing or by accident and I lose all of the pictures I just edited. (But that is partially user error.)
thawsout - Great app but too easy for others to access all photos not just selected
The quality and quantity of photos stored is excellent! It is easy to access and forward, email or share. Perhaps too easy to share as usually others can access all your photos whether you select and remove the qualifying hashtags to see all Photos, or not! This can
Be a privacy issue so check what you're doing and where you save the photos; it is better to send from separate albums you create.
Otherwise useful photo storage app.

Libeanbean - Love everything except some bugs
Things work exceptionally well until I found two bugs.
1. It kept showing xx photos left for backup even though I have enough video storage left. Not sure if this is related with IOS 11 as those photos were taken with my new iPhone 8 plus.
2. The combine faces feature does not work for me. I could select faces to combine and was asked to enter name for the person. However, the “OK” is not clickable so I have to click cancel to go back.
Not sure if anyone has either of the same issue.
Flappys Wingless Uncle - Good but needs work
The app is nice. It could be nicer with a few improvements. I have pics on several different devices, so not sure what I’ve uploaded and not. I upload entire folders and unless they are named the same it cannot detect same pictures. It would be nice if it could... I mean it can recognize same faces why not entire images. Maybe it can and I just haven’t found the feature idk. Also, lately I have been getting a lot of ‘unable to download’ messages when trying to download a photo to my phone.... its annoying, please resolve it. Otherwise, great app.
Travlin Coastie - A bit slow from phone
Basically I like the app as long as I have an internet connection (I don't have unlimited data and don't want to use it to upload photos). Being able to upload photos when I'm traveling gives me a sense of security and let's me keep my phone clear for taking more photos. Too slow to download to the phone though so I wait till I get home to pick out those special pics. And, since it comes with Prime I may as well use it rather than pay some other service.
WolvemanX - Latest update removed memories for family members
The title says it. We use this app for family photo storage going back decades. The next additional feature is the "this day in history" where you see photos from prior years. It used to be such that all people h hooked in to the account could use this feature, but a recent update made it so only the primary account holder can see it. Mom and grandma are not impressed. I’d raise my review back to five stars if they added the feature back in. Beyond that I’m not convinced it’s any better or worse than any other photo storage app.
_[wolrah]_ - Broken, needs work
The memories section just stopped working and won’t load anymore. I get a loading error message every time I try. Also the this day in the past also always fails to load for me. I tried to go into the help and feedback section of the app, but only a blank white screen will load. Fix all of these things and I will give it a five star rating.
Update: logging in again fixed the problems.
brYsturr - Facial Recognition Buggy
Considering that this is a free way to store your photos at full resolution, I've got no complaints. The facial recognition needs a bit of work to get going. You have to add pictures to family vault first or it doesn't seem to activate the facial recognition. Be careful also, once you set someone's face to a name, there seems to no easy way to edit. Overall, free and unlimited storage deserves 5 stars. All the "negative" things are really not big deal.
Tony Zapata - Love it
I have prime through my student discount and it's honestly the best thing ever. Years ago I used to use Photobucket to save pictures, but that was a huge hassle. I'm all about inconvenience and what makes my life easier. I don't even have to do anything, the photos in my photo album automatically back up to this app. I don't see how you can rate it anything other than 5 stars since it does what it says it'll do. Unlimited photo storage, how can you beat that?
Schorrgirl - The Best
Don’t know what I’d do without Prime. It keeps all my photos available quickly with much less space taken up in my phone. It’s holding 4 years of photos and I shoot a lot. It’s much much better than iCloud that takes ur photos and takes forever to re download them. Prime is a continuous photo album of the photos u choose taking very little space! None of this low resolution copies or forever downloads...it makes life easy and better
JohnRWms - Wonderful App
I LOVE this ability to organize & archive our photos in the cloud. A couple of suggestions would get you my 5th star . . .
• Thank you for allowing me to have my family join me. It would be better if ALL of us could see, share, & organize the albums. (I was shocked when we couldn’t.)
• If we could edit the date & location info on photos. Everything comes in as today where I currently am, but we’re often converting old photos to digital & it would be great if we could change the data to what it actually was.
• Along the same lines, it’d be great if there was a way to attach a note to a photo - like the notes my mom wrote on the back. Some of the notation would be accomplished by tagging who’s in the photo & editing the date & location. But a note field would allow us to capture things like “ready for the race” or whatever.
Taya82 - Definitely a useful app
We use this app all the time. I love the facial recognition that automatically groups my photos by person. I wish there was a way to change a grouped picture to another person. Multiple’s run in my family and they are too close for facial recognition. Free photo storage with prime membership plus easy availability to order photos. Hopefully photo books & calendar projects will be available one day.
Phil_Mediator - Good App, but Needs Added Features
I like the unlimited photo storage for Prime members. The app is fine for that purpose, but it could use a number of features to really make it a useful tool. A bulk uploaded would be nice for uploading directories of photos and keeping the structure within albums. That is, the album retains the directory name. A lightroom uploaded would be sweet. Also, album sorting options would be great beyond the two offered. Reverse chronological order, reverse file name, etc. drag and drop sorting would be nice, as well.
Yoly1968 - Memories
This app has given my family cherished memories that at times we have forgotten and then on certain days it reminds us and brings a smile to our faces and floods those memories back to us and we sit and talk about that day or that moment, we would like to say thank you for helping us to remember to slow down at times and just take in the moments that we have and hold them a little closer and keep them in our hearts.
JavsandCass - Think long and hard before you do this...
I got the app because what’s more tempting than displaying your favorite pics on the big screen, right? Think again. The app is somewhat complicated and in no time you have it downloading thousands of pics from your phone. If you use them for your screensaver they will gum up your fire stick. After downloading pics I had that darn little circle going round and round and could not get anything to work. After a couple of calls to tech support they had me reset the fire stick to factory settings. Lost all my favorite settings including Kodi. Now I have to start all over again... think twice before getting this app
Pjmorris05 - Works perfect with our Fire stick!
Love how we can instantly download all our pictures anywhere! And make an album just as quick.
I'm not a tech person, so I'm easily pleased when it comes to getting my photos on my TV to use for my class presentations (history teacher). I find images, photo-shot them, download them, put them in an album, take fire stick to school, and use my remote to show pictures as I teach! Love it!!!
stbneana - Love the yearly calendar and month to month!
The fact you can use multiple devices “my phone, iPad, pc” I have pictures on all three and it’s wonderful. You can use up to 6 I think not sure on that but it is nice. This program was recommended to me by an expert of sorts and it has been great. I strongly recommend it to anyone that takes a ridiculous amount of pictures each month. Oh did I mention you can make albums! Love it!
War2d2 - Bare bones, but very good
It’s not as feature-rich as something like Flickr, but if you’re already paying for Prime it’s a no-brainer to use this to backup your photos. Unlimited photo storage is the draw, though you have to pay extra for video storage. I wish it had a setting to prevent it from uploading videos, which is why I took off a star. Other than that it does what it advertises and I ha w no complaints. The “on this date” feature is fun, to see what you you were doing on this date years ago.
Kayleh2 - Awesomeness
love that i can back up all my precious memories of my son FOR FREE! There’s even some storage for videos for free. After I used all of my video storage, I was excited that I could pay once a year for more video storage than I will ever need for an affordable price. AND I can order pictures in the same app. Although, quality of the printed photos could be better. It’s easy to maneuver but is timely when ordering prints. Overall, 9.5 out of 10!
CM18! - Excellent App
I love this app for storing all my photos and I especially like the ability to create photo albums to sort all my photos for easy access. The only feature I would like to add would be the ability to upload from your “favorites” folder on your iPhone instead of only camera roll or collections. This would be nice for quick access to my best photos in one place. Other than that though, love the app!
marinomiami - Great app and convenient
This app is excellent because it makes frequent updates into your photos storage and if you loose your phone you’ll most likely not loose any pictures. It’s very easy to navigate and you can track back to a particular month of location when or where the picture was taken so you can navigate through your picture history easily and on the go..
chandlerflannery - Good but...
This is a great app for storing photos, however I wish there was a way to import albums already on your phone directly from your phone into the app instead of having to upload the photos into the app and then again into a “new album” within the app. A lot of the albums in my phone are made up of pictures with drastically different date/time stamps and it’s very difficult to track them down in prime photos to put them into an album (essentially re-creating the album that’s already on my phone).
KatieH987 - Almost perfect
I really enjoy the ease of use for this app. Four stars only because there is no way to sort albums chronologically by when the photos within were taken. I would like a sort feature that looks inside the albums to check when the photos were taken, then allow me to sort by that. Or, I would like to be able to sort the albums reverse-alphabetically/numerically so that if I make an album 2019-January, it will appear at the top of my album feed.
Juice197147 - Photos
Can’t seem to get it to help carry bags into the house but it still works! Lol it’s an app to VIEW my photos! How can It be BAD or GOOD?? You OPEN the app and if you can VIEW your photos, BOOM 5 ✨’s , if you TRY to OPEN the app and , O wait, I can’t rate it if it DOES NOT OPEN😂😂😂 having WAYYYYYY too much fun with this REVIEW! Lol hope it makes WHOMEVER reads this review, I hope it brings you a refreshing, real quick, chuckle and SMILE for the day ! S.N. did I use WHOMEVER correctly??? I been in QUARANTINE wayyyyy to long it seems like!!!
Pierce Home - Easy and no glitches like google
Tried to upload about 28,000 photos and videos to google photos with months of it erroring out, trying to backload the whole 28k photos over and over again...
Downloaded the prime photo app on my desktop and phone. It loaded all 28k photos and videos with only 3 errors and it’s been great ever since.
It did take a while to load it all, probably a few days and via desktop.
moonhunt18 - Mostly fine
Really there’s only a couple things I’d like that others already mentioned.. it would be good to be able to correct the face recognition when it’s wrong. This happens often. And it would be nice to be able to rotate the image from the app. (Great if it, like google, actually pointed out the pics that might need a flip). To delete pics from the main area when making albums. And to alert to duplicate photos being stored/about to be stored.
The one thing I don’t see others mentioning that really is my biggest prob with this app, is the having to leave the app open fir it to store/upload my photos. That’s a real PITA. Can’t it happen in the background? As a pic is taken?
That would be nice.
I use this because I get it with prime. But it is my backup of a back up. (Google photos is just a better app at this point.)
AlainaP13 - User Friendly!
I choose to use Prime as my mail means of photo back-up & storage. It’s easier for me to locate a photo quickly w/n the App to show a friend, share to social media, etc. otherwise, I’ll be scrolling thru tiny thumbnails forever thru 100’s of pics to find what I’m looking for. All picture storage services usually have great formats for optimum organization. I personally like Prime Photos best & will
continue to use their services.
Jane Apfel - Always, Always, Always Back Up Your Photos
Life is made up of memories, and photos are one of the best connections to those memories. As such, it is so important to protect your photos. This app is one of a few I use to make certain that my photos are not lost. It’s perfect for the function I need it to perform — background back up with virtually no effort. I highly recommend you make certain your photos are backed up today.
mmeecase - Stores my photos
I’ve been looking for photo storage for awhile and even though I have prime, I thought I had to pay for it. Turns out I don’t for photos but I did have to buy extra storage for my videos (reason for 4 stars). Other than that, I think it’s a great app. It stores my photos which is exactly what I need. I also like how it automatically backs up the photos in my phone. I haven’t tried to do anything else on the app so can only rate that it stores photos well.
tcrotu - Great Free Storage W/Prime
Don’t have anything bad to say about the app. The app helps free up space on all my devices. Loading photos is easy, and the app is really user friendly.
I wish my photos would load automatically (w/o having to open the app), I thought this option was available when I originally downloaded the app. I can see how people wouldn’t like this option if the pay for data, I have unlimited though.
Hollie Jean - The future of photo storage!
I have over 20,000 photos so it can be overwhelming organizing them all. With Prime Photos I can search my archives by date, place and even person (with facial recognition). When our beloved family dog died recently we were able to use the animal search option and find every photo of her over the past 14 years in seconds! I can’t say enough wonderful things about Prime Photos!
JackieNoff - Don’t change my view settings!
If I’m on my iPad and viewing in landscape mode, don’t change it to portrait. I used to love looking back at the memories for each day, but since I use my iPad like a laptop (with attached keyboard) this feature is now useless. Please either keep the view settings I have or allow me a way to select it.
Used to be a five star app.
Edit - thanks for fixing the view! Back to a five star app
Memory M - Very Helpful
We don’t own a home computer, so having a place that collects all of the photos I take with my phone and storing them for me gives me tremendous peace of mind. I am also not tech-savy in any capacity, so I appreciate this app’s simplicity. It pairs well with my Fire Stick and allows me to organize my photos & video as well as create slideshows for our TV.
Ordering prints was very simple and they arrived quickly. The prints were great quality.
Love this app.
mikeinbako - USEFUL AND CONVENIENT
I love being able to automatically upload photos from multiple devices and view them later from any device. I’m able to save a lot of memory on phones and tablets. I just wish it was easier to download or transfer these files later because I like to back up a year’s worth of photos to an external memory device. That is very tedious because you can’t filter photos and transfer through one action for some reason.
JCS in Atlanta - Convenient image and video storage.
It is a convenient storage system. In my short experience it has several short comings either by current status of developing, my lack of experience with it or need for development improvement. My top-mind needs: slow downloading photo & video files, having to keep the app open to speed downloading and limited video file store and how to resolve the video storage issues. I don’t know where to look for help?
