Reviews From google play store

Needs a 'print' folder available. A folder you can add pictures too that you wish to print at a photo booth or online so it makes for easy effortless transfer/print of photos rather than scrolling through the 9000k photos that are currently in my album to find only the ones I wish to print!


The app continuously runs in the background and makes the processor performance get slow. Whenever I'm done with the app and close it still it runs in the background and unless the phone is restarted, it doesn't get stopped. Kindly fix the bug.


As of late is very very slow to load photos. Also after watching a video it likes to scroll all the way back to the top. One has to then refined there content


Generally a good app but constantly says album running in the background. I don't have the app open in the background, any help on how to fix this would be appreciated :)


Generally slow. Please disable all animation effects according to the user's Settings/Accessibility/Remove Animations... no app should override system settings. Animation effects slow down the phone making useability annoying. Thx


It's an okay app Would be nice to have easier multiple selection for the photos such as a hold and swipe Also the hidden album part could include a password Other than that it's pretty smooth


Unable to delete pics from sd card.. Sometimes it is not at all deleted Sometimes the pic is deleted for once then after reboot it reappears..


Photo analyzer seems unstable, it's active by itself eventhough it has already been disabled.


This app is fine or it would be if that annoying checking for updates sign in the status bar. 😖Ahhhh get rid of it,...... It drives me daft!!


Constantly tells its checking for updates for the relevant apps, other xperia users post same issue on xperia forum that Sony just ignore.


Constantly displays "Checking for the updates of the related apps" in the notification bar. This cannot be removed and is extremely annoying.


Keeps showing as running when I close the app since the last few updates, don't have this issue with other apps


Solid and high quality gallery app, possibly the only one that supports native Bravia and X-Reality engines' image enhancement features.


Hei, it is now possible to see video thumbnails, great work! Thumb up


it's… OK, there are much better apps and you can't do much with it, but good job :)


Album is better than other gallery but recently updated is not good, sometimes images are not showing in Sony xperia Z2


Asks for Photo Analyzer permissions every time it's launched, there is no option to disable it.


Really love the interface and easy to use.


The new update seems to have fixed the crashing apo


Removed Places view, arguably the most useful feature. It seems like this is going to turn into yet another generic image viewer. Why should I use Albums when MS OneDrive has this feature, and more, built in? STOP removing features that set you apart from the competition. I just uninstalled all updates of the app and will keep using the original version that came with Android 9...


Sony XZ3 I have been quite happy with the app for a very long time, but estremely disappointed after this update the location of the photos has been discontinued.... Why....? Also tried to change the date for one foto takes ages, why not an option to change collectively instead one by one? As it stand, looking for alternative app....


Please add animated & transition in slideshow.


Has been fine until now but I accidentally accepted a request by it to store all my pictures on a cloud system and now is horrible. I don't have fast enough broadband to upload anything at home and I don't have enough data provision anywhere to do this without it costing me a fortune. It won't let me cancel the option and if I block it by turning off storage permissions it keeps trying and each day it overrides my choice, switches on the permissions and starts uploading again!


This app has been working fine until today , not sure why im now getting a notification saying "checking for the updates of related apps ' this notification wont swipe away off my screen and I'm not sure what it means .ive never seen this notification before and ive had this app on my sony xz2 phone for over a year. Ive had to switch off the notification for this funtion in the app settings ,but im worried about what it means and what its doing


Can we get back the search photos by "PLACES" option??


App consistently runs in the background really annoying need to sort this out 😡


Never ending update of related apps which is something I have never seen previously. Never seems to do anything and notification is just there and no setting to turn off this functionality which doesn't seem to do anything. Even restarting phone wll normally not end the "update"


Please improve loading and deleting pictures time


"Support for viewing of photos with the Places view has been discontinued This function will no longer be available after updating the application." Why? Which is the last version to have it?


I would appreciate if you include an option to hide folders or albums. That's what is missing I think


As usual Sony appear to be removing from their updates the functions that made their apps stand out; with Album, it is the places feature. As upgrading would reduce the functionality, I will be running the factory installed version of the app until Places is added again.


This is a great app to keep media organized. My 4 stars are just because this started to gave me an error, it affects if I need a screenshot of one of my videos, takes just a black screenshot. Fix this please. 😔


Constantly trying to update.


Why the F did you remove places and NOT WRITE IT in the change log? It's 2019. We have GPS. This is just rediculous . PS : The screenshots still shows Places. Classy. Edit : my guess, removing a working function without mentioning it has to do with licencing, specifically map data. Sony is saving money by not paying licence and thus cut the functionality from the app. And, what is up with all these fake reviews?


This new update is even worse than the last one and that is difficult to do. Lost the places and geo tag facilities it seems. This was the one thing i liked it for. I had a problem with most other things before as it didn't handle the SD folder files very well, and lately took ages to create folders as counterintuitive after last remodling of menus. And last year it started taking a long time to move files and this only worked when in foregrond. The screen saver stopped things dead!


I have a pet peeve with this app. Why is is it ALWAYS checking for updates compatibility with other apps and eating up my battery. This is a glitch that needs to be fixed.


I'm not sure what the Upload button actually uploads to... There's no selection for that.


In the recent update, the description of removing “Places” is incomplete because all geo-tagging functionality has ALSO been removed! There is very little that distinguishes this application now. Disappointing. P.S. Ironically, Google just announced that they're adding geo-tagging & map-view functionality to Google Photos soon!


What the F , I have photos dating 2012 to 2016 then decided to add them to the favorite list what F ing blunder would you change the original dates of those photos to the current date of adding them (September 2019) all them photos changed to the same date. Now you gave me the trouble to find out how to undo this blunder you made. I have been using this app eversince the release of the Sony Xperia Z1 and this is the first time this trusted app I use made this.


Been a fan of Sony phones even when it was w/Ericsson. The latest update has removed another of the best features - PLACES allowed for auto-sorting photos by geotag. This very unique Sony feature has gone the way of Sony Music App's Sense automatic Playlist generator, LifeLogs extended tracking of behaviors, and the unique and helpful mini-apps, among others (ie. Radio). Extremely disappointed in how generic & unspecial the mobile phones' apps are becoming. Who is making these poor decisions?


Sad that the "Places" function has been removed, which is one of the most useful functions and sets ut apart from the other generic album apps. Even sadder that this was not mentioned in the change log. Guess I'll have to uninstall the updates and reinstall the backup of the earlier version. :(


the spinning wheel keeps spinning at most of the time. when I use Instagram and try to find a photo in my album, not all the photos can be displayed. serious bug with this simple app, please fix it asap.


It's actually a nice photo album but the inability to sort images by name instead of the crazy jumble it does upon importing is becomming too irritating to put up with. Why is this basic feature not included?


Bring back Places please Sony! It was a great way of finding photos in a particular Place, even if you couldn't remember the time! Why impose a downgrade on your customers? Be nice and bring it back please :) Thanks


I've found a bug, If i click on the three dots and then "Display settings" "menu in Album app during playing a movie and then click back arrow Android main settings menu appears not the movie. This occurs only in Display menu. I have no problems with the other ones. Also the option for switching audio channels when play dual channel movie is missing.


Places view was removed and not mentioned in the change notes, but on app start a notification appears! Removing major features without warning or alternatives sure is NOT good customer service. For anyone relying on it: For now it's possible to disable and re-enable the app to get back to the factory version and get "places" back.


worst album app I've ever seen, after 9.0 update it has been working extremely slowly regardless of internal or external storage: takes forever to load, delete ,move ,hide or anything with picture. Wish I could just delete it and use something useful Update: now it has to load pics with "fix problems " options with each restart, which takes up to 20 min to do ,absolute garbage of app


I like this app. I've always had Sony mobiles so I've always used this app and never had any problems


Used to be a decent app for photo management /viewing, but recent updates hasve taken away or broken much of its functionality. The 'places' feature has been removed, and now playback of videos taken with the phone has been replaced by a buffering screen. Would no longer recommend this app.


Cannot get rid of the updating app notification. App is up to date and the phone is on the latest version of android. Happens on multiple different sony handsets


This album is very very good i have download the gallery but i have deleted that application and download this album


This is a great app for viewing your photos. I use it all the time. But if I could add one feature that would be really handy, I would add the ability to rename a file or photo.


Places view gone. I found that view very useful. The removal of this feature wasn't mentioned in the "what's new". It was buried at the bottom of the blurb. How do i roll back to the previous version please Sony?


Getting notification - Checking for updates on the related apps - which I can't get rid off. The app itself is OK. It's the unswipeable notification that pisses me off.


Places was one of the features I used most often. And now it's gone? Without saying a single word about it in "what's new"??? Instead of solving real problems you just remove useful features?


Constantly saying it's 'checking for updates' in notification bar. Only way to get it to dissappear is to turn phone off! Please fix!


Since the latest update, the geotag and places and globe view have been disabled. That sucks. Because that is one of the quickest way to find an old photo. Kindly put it back.


This app just keeps getting more and more disabled. You'd get 0 stars if that was possible. Why remove the "Places" function? It was one of the last strengths of this app!


They dropped support for the view showing the places where you took the pictures using the geotag information. The new updates are removing features instead of adding more things. That's bad.


Was good, then Sony starts expiring apps linked to album, which lags opening or crashes all the time.


Unique feature of Sony album, "places" discontinued in latest update. This is really shocking. I don't know what cause Sony to remove such excellent feature. Other companies are trying to improve their apps and Sony want to degrade . Totally unexpected 😠😠😠


Please add the places view back, it's the only reason I'm still using this app but not google photo. To someone who loves travel this places view is the best way to review all the places I've ever been.


It's an ok app, but I used to have the widget in which you can see the pictures on your home screen. Was that feature removed for the xperia XZ2 or what's happening?


"Checking for the updates of the related apps"? Great apart from this constant message. Tried updating etc. No luck.


Sony xperia xzs back to the original album is the only thing that can be found on this site that you can 🥫 to find a new one or a good time to read it in the next few days and send you a link to a great site that you can use as a web site that you can beam app content with your site and you can 🥫 your web site to find the right 👉 for you and your business is a great idea for your business site and your business is the best way to go about creating your business and your marketing business


It struggles to delete more than 4 pictures, u have to select them again until they go away.


Excellent app,this application very helpful and easy to access and control .


Im having problems with my app, when i open it , the screen go's fuzzy and i cant see anything. Is there a fix for this problem??


Viewing photos is stuck to 4:3 aspect for both orientations. Not sure why.


Love the app but all of a sudden I'm getting a blue circle next to the app icon and i can't get rid of..


Rubbish update Have gone from viewing videos and photos to now seeing only a loading screen .What a disappointment and seeing this is quite common in the reviews yet no fix from Sony. Unacceptable .


Places gone, the Value of this app has halved. such a shame. I have found "photo map full gallery" the best alternative. or just un-install updates 👌😂


Used to be great but now you have discontinued the places view and didn't warn us before updating! very disappointed. Please bring it back


A frustrating lack of features in an app that I can't get rid of. I hope your paycheck was as mediocre as your program, dev.


Bring back the PLACE view!!! It's so useful when I want to find a photo if I can only recall where I took it but forget when.


There's something wrong with my album, it checking for the updates of related frequently and nothing happen, I'm using xperia XZ Oreo


"Places view" is one of the most important feature. Why did you remove it? Put it back at least for the single picture selected


Best album app on the market in my opinion. Please just add support for playing .GIF files


It would be great to add an option to choose default category other than all content Otherwise good app


After update when i open menu there just blank


Why has "places" view been discontinued? That was the best part of this app!


Awful! App would not stop, using the processor continuously unless you force stop.


how can you get rid if the best feature of the app... Places was the best view for me to manage my thousands of photos with!!! bring it back please!


This is built into my Sony Xperia mobile it is OK but do not know why I keep getting a notification about it needing an update.


It is a nice app, but I would rate it 5 star if I had the ability to exclude media from some of the folders.


Folders are not arranged correctly !! Please fix it, it's been some time now


Takes ages to open, and load pictures, most just show a broken link....


My album app ceep on saying checking for updates even if there aren't any and it make that notification mark so i have to restart my phone but as soon as i open it it is back


Good app but it would be nice to filter out certain folders and casting doesn't seem to work.


Fantastic gallery app! iOS 13 stole some of it's features!


Bring back places view, was a great way to find photos quickly.


It will be better if we could sort our photos by creating our folder only in the app, of course, we need RECYXLING STATION!


Removing geotag and associated features has ruined what was once an excellent app. Not worth using after the June 2019 update.


Keep getting a push notification about "checking for updates" that i can't get rid of,switching to Google photos


Another update, another feature removed. What possible reason was there to remove Places?


I really like the app, it's easy to use and the features are great 👍🏾


Would prefer being able to view all Folders each time I open the app, instead of all photos like a default. Unless there is but ive not seen it?


It keeps attenpting to update but failing! I also cant select photos in instagram mode


one reason of using this app is "place" now they suddenly remove this funtion. No point of using to slow photo viewing app anymore


It works fine . Never had an issue . Greatful for those who put hard work into it.
