Reviews From google play store

Love the unlimited storage of photos I get with Amazon Prime! Plus 5GB video storage with videos taken with my Fire Kindle. Excellent! It saves memory on my phone and on my Fire Kindle. The pictures are always clear and sharp. Unless of course my fur-baby moves lol I can make albums up and the whole family has access to the photos.


When I originally installed the Amazon Photo app it backed up all my phone pictures without issue, then after some time it stopped (I have Prime so it was not a space issue). It would hang at backing up 1 of X MB. The next time the app asked me if I like it I answered NO and it gave an option of submitting diagnostic logs. I just noticed a new update as of today (Oct 10/19) and it has now finished automatically uploading the months of photos that were stuck. Rating 3 for now, will update.


I like the depth of color even on cut, paste,. download and copied images. The Photo Editor is better than Google's but I don't think Amazon Photos has the capability to edit and set an image as a wallpaper on my tablet, phone or pc. Maybe I missed it. As is, I edit in Amazon and upload to Google Photos to select as wallpaper! I find that to be a serious deficiency but it organizes and stores images so I locate easier.


My wife and I use this app seamlessly with our T-Mobile unlimited service. Syncing the taking of photos and uploading to Amazon Prime Photos. EASY! Update - traveling with Amazon Photos & T-Mobile has been great! Take pix and up they go to cloud😉


I have never had issues with this app. I like the fact that my are safe if my phone dies and that I can go to my home computer and load up Amazon photos and all the photos I took with phone are right there. Then I can order actual photos. Love this app!


I am pleased with this app. I appreciate the memory of photos taken on the same day in previous years. It's a great back up to ensure I don't lose photos. The only thing missing is competitively priced print order options. Prints are expensive compared to other photo services.


It's great to have the option of backing up unlimited photos and videos of our daughter. I've changed phones three times this year for various reasons and I loved being able to access all my memories instantly from the system setup.


Provides security for the photos on my home and PC, if either goes wrong or is stolen, I still have my photos and critical files saved. Easy to set up and runs automatically. Came as part of my Prime subscription. Excellent.


Poorly thought out, you can't tell it which folders to exclude. So it uploads all my music album art and book covers! They tell me to select the folders to ignore, yeah, hundreds of them! Why can't you select the parent folders?


It's great. Love that it pretty much can replace the Google Photos service but there's one thing. 5GB storage? That's sad in 2019. It's sad especially when the competition is offering 3 times as much (free).;I mean, clearly this isn't about US customs but rather data collection, AI face detection and tracking, etc... but at least do it right. Put up free decent storage.


Its a great place to back up all of your photos and order prints easily. I enjoy the memories it shows you from the same day years in the past. Recently it showed me pictures from the same day 9 years ago! It was great to reminisce about the event that occured that day. Definately recommend as a photo saving/ordering app. Oh and backing up photos is a breeze!


Great application and service. I don't know what I'd do without it. Has saved me from losing photos over different phone calamities Etc. Does an excellent job on backing up and keeping your photos of nice albums. Other Futures are also nice like collage, when turned on face recognition , syncing and more. It is worth having whether you are a Prime member or standard user. Amazon great job!! 🌟⭐⭐⭐🌟


I like the app pretty much but there are a couple of things I think need to be changed. First, I don't like the fact that if you try to delete photos or videos from the app it deletes them from your device. This should be an optional choice in settings not a mandatory operating procedure. Second, it is next to impossible to bulk add photos to albums. Fix these two issues and I will give it 5 stars.


Great app. Love the fact that it keep track of the days from years ago to let you know what happened on a particular day. It also can group pictures.


It's great that prime members can upload original quality photos... but the upload functionality on the app seems to be semi broken... my internet connection is pretty fast but it seems like it will take days to upload a few photos from the phone... I'm pretty sure it should only take 1 min max per photo on a slow connection... and I would have about 10 photos but it will take a day or 2 sometimes 3 for it to be uploaded... and yes... I am connected to wifi... it's pretty frustrating


Enjoy the X- years ago today part of this app. Not the easiest to use, easy to delete a photo because it appears to be a duplicate, but it's not, then its gone forever with no way to get it back. Hate that. Can't re-sort photos, or edit date (or whatever) to group various camera uploads together. The app has great moments and is so frustrating at the same time.


Love Amazon, so naturally I'm sure I'll love this, a ton, but I gave 4 stars because I haven't used all of its features yet. It has been taking quite a long time to download a ton of photos from the past, but, it's quite a bit. It's been like two weeks, its downloading like 14,000+ photos, but seems to only get a handful in per day, and I have no idea where it's pulling the photos from! I can see they are mine but 🤷‍♀️. I'll update as I use it.


I love the App but do not know if I can do the things you asked in the survey. I haven't tried to do any of this. I printed out pictures and videos on my other phone. But not this one


Love knowing that my pics are getting uploading almost as soon as they're taken. I made the mistake of eliminating some videos bc I thought they were uploaded as well but VIDEOS DON'T GET UPLOADED. So be careful not to delete videos. Otherwise it's great. Does anyone know if photo quality is just as good as camera photos? Can I print photos from amazon photos or is resolution minimized?


I have never used an app for photos that is so easy to use. anything you want to do is right there. Thank you! It has been 2 days since I left that above review. Yes, the app is way cool & easy to use, but after I made 3 Albums with around 25 pictures it told me I was out of space and had to purchase more space. It said 10.99year but didn't even say how much space I would be purchasing. So...I deleted app?


Place a file named ".nomedia" in any folder you don't want backed up. It's a Linux/Unix thing. .nomedia without the quotation marks, if you didn't know. This will keep other apps out of this folder, as well (audio, video, and photos.) Make a blank text file and name it this. If it disappears in your file manager, you probably did it correctly. Google Linux hidden files for explanation. Hope this helps.


Many ways to find your pictures. ( people, places, dates and albums ) Great sharing with family and friends!


It does the job it was assigned to do and it does it well. I would give 5 stars if they included unlimited video storage at no extra cost which would set them above all others and would gain them tons more customers just from the convienience factor of having free unlimited video storage included in ones prime subscription. When & if this dream comes true ill go with a 5 star review and recommend them to everyone I know and my customers as well. I am in the media business and need unlmtd video


Everything is great but there is one thing I would like to see. I have many pictures to put in albums. When I do that, it also stays in the main stream. This makes it difficult to find where I left off the next time i want to add to my albums. It would help if the photos that were put in albums were also moved to a different area at the same time or tagged somehow.


Love it. Easy to use. Just set it up and it will upload every photo... only problem is it uploads EVERY PHOTO... so beware... but yeah it's great.


I upload photos of my daughter to an album on this app so they'll display as the screensaver on my firestick. Album has over 900 photos in it, but firestick will only display the last 40-50 pictures added to the album. Amazon seems to be aware of the problem (from other posts I've seen) but do not have a fix and don't seem to be working on one. Disappointing...


DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP IF YOU ARE NOT CONNECTED ON WIFI. After downloading the app, it had the initial question of asking me if it could have access to my photos. The second I hit yes, it instantly sucked nearly 6GB of data, uploading all my pictures and videos. This app should have a question on WHEN such a huge data upload can occur. When I called Amazon, all they said was, "you should know better". The app should know better and give me the OPTION of WHEN this amount of data is transferred.


*Edit* this app used to be amazing at photo updates. But over the past year it has pretty much stopped working. I have unlimited storage back-up, so I haven't exceeded my space. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. that takes weeks to sync. and sometimes doesn't sync at all, resulting in having to start all over again. I'm unsure what changed, but this used to be an amazing app. i still love the "this day" from previous years" where it shows past memories. that resulted in 2 stars.


It's really bad. Here it is 12 hours later and my photos haven't uploaded yet. Meanwhile on Google Photos as soon as I got cell service back ALL my photos were uploaded in less than 10 minutes. Then when they do upload it's painfully slow. 1 simple pic per hour. When it works it's great, but it mainly doesn't work on ALL of my multiple devices.


Great for collating all my photos from all my devices in a single location. Easy to use and access photos.


Sync is very slow, when it even works. Sometimes the app needs to be restarted a few times to keep the sync moving for only a hundred or so photos. Same on WiFi and cellular. Hasn't been able to sync for over a week now. Also, a bit lacking on features. Not just the app, but the platform in general. No way to fix incorrect face matching that I have found... among a lot of other basic features.


Not fit for purpose Google 'Amazon photo app doesn't upload', and you'll find many users are unable to get the app to back up photos. Sometimes it's starts , but then randomly gets stuck (mine has been on uploaded 0.4 mb of 5k mb for days. Shut down clear cache uninstall app it doesn't make a difference. Cant trust this app to back up your photos. Never had a problem with Google photos which works away quietly in the background


I hate how it backs up everything indiscriminately on my phone, I want to be able to curate what gets backed up. I also tried accessing my Amazon Photos account on my laptop, and it said I have none despite them being visible on the app. And if you delete a photo in the app, it deletes it off your phone. What about photos you want to keep on your phone but not on the app? Uninstalling, since having 0 control over which photos get uploaded (even after changing settings) is way too creepy for me.


The only issue is that face recognition isn't quite where it needs to be, and I'd like to be able to change the date the photo was taken.


I wish this was on the main app because this one is lacking. I wanted to create a second order of prints to ship to my grandmother and even though I ordered my first set without issue, when I try and order the second, I go to checkout but then receive a message "Oops! This page is only available at checkout." um.... that's what I'm doing.... I'm guessing it's a bug or system downtime or something because I tried restarting my phone, making a brand new order. nothing seems to work.


I don't use any Amazon figures. Rather not even have on my phone. Tired everytime u get a phone theres Apps on phone go to uninstall it doesnt then u force stop. It still there and comes up to update later. Annoyed and Grrrrrr with cell phones. Gettimg were i just want incoming and out going calls with talk only. Fine company that they dont have all this garb. I make Albums and is all on one page and I dont have all the extra bull in my face. please dont contact me on any of this matter. Thxs.


If you have Amazon Prime it's a must-have. You can upload your photos and they keep their quality. It's also really easy to use. There are other options like Google photos but Amazon photos is much better and has more options. Also if you need any help you can always contact Amazon.


I've had the app for about two years. It's a great idea, but leaves a lot to be desired coming from a giant like Amazon. The andoid app doesn't let me drag select in bulk, like I can with my native Android gallery. Considering its an excisting feature on base photo apps, that's a big negative. 2nd, the PC app is garbage. Nowhere near the same functionality as the Android app. You forced to use the web browser, which allows things down considerably and is inefficient.


Outstanding Application that allows me to store pictures at high resolution, and then scale them down as needed for and from different types of devices. Having fourty five thousand high resolution images storef on the application, and then being able to search by type, name, location, date range, etc... Fantastic application, and makes for great usage across IOS, Windows, Chrome, and Android based devices so that i can have a central repository that can be managed and accessed anywhere...


I Love how it saves everything I take photos of , save from my family and friends , and everything I upload To my phone ! I Love how I can Share with my Family , Friends , and Social Media ! I Love how I can get Rid of items that I don't want to keep ! I'll keep my Amazon Account for years to come for all that comes with it ! So easy to Manage All My Awesome Amazon's Account Items Included in my Paid Account ! The Prime Offers Awesome Movie Options ! Best Apps Ever 💯 !


It's absolutely bloody rubbish. Useless. I lost all my lovely.memories. Over 2750 photos. I was on the phone, for over half an hour. I sill haven't got them back. I want my photos, backed up by Google. I can't do it. I pay for Google backup. Amazon have taken them all. It's uploading 1 f****** photo a day and we've got rapid broadband. I'm fuming. I have lost my memories, I cannot get them back. Amazon don't care. I have the onslaught of dementia and I will not be able to remember.our holidays an


Didn't realise you got this when you sign up to prime. I am very impressed. I like the ease of use for photos taken on my phone. You can edit s photo on the move. I will stick to GIMP for photos taken on my DSLR but for normal stuff this is great.


This app has improved so much since I last reviewed it back in October 2018. Now almost one year later everything I had complained about has now been a feature and a whole lot more bonuses. There's face recognition so I can see all pictures with me in it, or my friends' faces so I can organize it that way. It's very intuitive. Not only that, if you're a Prime member you can store pictures unlimited. Very easy to use and user friendly. Highly recommended.


For pictures from years ago, it shows several copies of the same picture. But if you delete one of them, the app DELETES ALL COPIES. I just lost a picture I really liked, and the info showed their names with 1, 2 and 3 afterwards, but as I deleted 3, 1 and 2 were GONE. No recycle bin that I could find! This sucks!


Works great, love the sorting features and option to order prints. UPDATED 8/12/19- The app is buggy now, and will only upload my pictures when the app is open, and not automatically like it used to. UPDATED 10/12/19 I am still only able to upload my pictures and videos with the app open, but at least the app stays connected to the internet now.


Always having problems with upload. Amazon says its my internet, but even if I only have one device running on the network, Amazon Photos still has problems uploading. I also keep experiencing a problem with checking out. Once I select my photos to checkout, the app tells me my cart is empty. I've used the app many times and it usually works but this is a new issue I can't figure out. It's super annoying.


Not user friendly. Its takes too many steps to add photos to family vault. I have to look up the steps everytime, and end up wasting a lot of time. When deleting photos from the app it deleted all the photos from my phone. I would love to use this more because the family vault slideshow on my show, and fire TVs are nice. Unfortunately I dont because I dont want to lose all my pictures again.


This is the slowest app, it's almost comical! Google photo's will automatically sync photos in my gallery as soon as I get wifi. I find this extremely important as i use the cloud to back up family photos. I decided to download this aa a free alternative.. Y'ALL. I've had this app for over a week and it's still struggling to sync photos. I was connected to wifi all day today and it hasn't been able to sync ANY photos for the past 4 days. Don't bother using this to back things up! Not worth it.


This app doesnt allow you choose what pics to save or send to certain device's:/ , Automatically syncing all your photos to all your devices. ( Will take up storags on all devices) For example "We should have a choice of what photos,videos we want send to each Fire stick" I'm just trying to make a slideshow screensaver with 100+ ,


I love the fact that all my pictures are backed up on Amazon photos. I had a phone that crashed and I lost everything on it. With Amazon photos I don't have to worry about losing photos of my granddaughters. The uploads are super fast!


Asked me if I wanted to back up my photos and I selected no, proceeded to back up all my photos. Had to go and individually select each one to delete. Waste of 20 minutes of my life to try to get the app to start working as intended before uninstalling it.


- currently it is not possible to add/edit the location where the image was taken - i would like to have a map with all the locations viaualized in some way - the ui needs improvement. currently the bottom navigation bar doesn't include the "Places" option. you need to open "more" to find it. i am sure that there's a more elegant solution to that. - when you activate auto upload it starts straight away. the behavior, however, should be that you first define the folders which are to be synced


Absolutely horrible. Backed up all of my photos. When it said backup complete, I checked and it looked like it had backed them up successfully. I then deleted about 2,000 photos on my device. A day later, I go to get some photos to make an ebay listing and half of the pictures I needed were not there. I then start looking through and most of the photos are gone. I look how many are in there and of all of the photos, only about 60 of the photos from my camera are in there. Lost so much.


really enjoy seeing my pictures on the big screen. i would like maybe a bit more time to view them even on slow its sbout 6 seconds10 is a good average. also a few more transitions between frames. just to help with the interest. but i love the ease of use and all my family csn connect there devices and share all for FREE!!!. 5GB of video. but you can buy more if you need it .. well done Amazon. like it! many thanks . Derek


Another great way to save your pictures, and not worry about loosing wonderful memories! Whether you've had a problem with your phone, or buying a new one, your photos are safe either way! You can also set your photos as your Fire TV screensaver with a slideshow format!


Easy to use, easy to share with friends . Only issue I have is that it stops loading when your phone goes off.


I love this app because all my pictures automatically upload to the cloud and even though I'm on my third phone this year, don't ask, it saved all my photos. I also like the feature that you can look up photos by a specific person that you want to check your photos of all your photos of of the one person you can go back and look at your photos like that and then re-download them as many times as necessary. But take comfort in the fact that they are always there.


I love that this app automatically backs up my pictures. In the past I have lost so many precious pictures on phones when transfering or because the sd card failed. I love that the photo storage is unlimited with Prime. Unfortunately the video storage is not unlimited. I've been hesitant, but I think I'll just have to buy the extra storage for my videos. I love amazon!


I like the app & photos come out great. The #1 problem by far is the storage with backing up.. Shouldn't have to bye more, not with the technology today. It's actually a negative, ESPECIALLY with such a successful company such as Amazon. Not just for products. Numerous services that require monthly payments & I'm talking 3/4 tiers of $ amounts. But I guess that's how they stay _$$$$$$_. The big stay big & keep growing & the low just stay low & keep dropping!


Great app from Amazon and very reasonably priced considering what you get for your money. Big storage for your pix & vids plus all the goodies included when you join Prime. At £7.99 per month you get Films, TV, Photo storage, Kindle books and so much more. Try it, there's no contract so you can stop payment and leave at anytime. Simples.


It stopped backing up my pictures 4 months ago. Every time i turn it on, it backs up a few. I contacted support and they said to reinstall, which I did. Then the app took over 30 mins to "load" pictures. It did start bacjing up eventually but I was not able to change the folders for backing up. I deselect folders but they appear selected again when I tap on manage folders. It didn't back up all the pictures in my camera folder but backed up my screen shots. I am pulling my hair out!


I take pictures using two phones and two tablets and I love that they're all synced together on Amazon photos. All I have to do is pull up the photos on Amazon photos and everything is right there. No more losing phones getting new phones and losing pictures. All the photos are all in one place forever and I am so happy I did this.


I have different cloud storage solutions. However, Amazon prime offers so much for only 10 dollars per month, films,twitch,games, and also get an amazing photo editor and THAT is why I'm writing this review; I can't believe how good the photo editor is!! Amazon photo editor is like Photoshop and Canva mixed. Google "360fov give it to me" for a VIP invite to prime, up to 90 days free and 20 Amazon Vouchers, guaranteed! This NOT paid promotion, im just sharing info that many are unaware of.@360fov


Very disappointed considering this is from Amazon! Clunky interface and inconsistent in how it functions. Will not upload all photos and videos all of the time even though I have auto backup turned on. It gets hung up for no apparent reason. Even after restarting the phone and reinstalling the app, it's not great. This is really the only option I have for autobacking up my husband's and my phone photos to one location but I wish It were better.


I've had this app for years. It used to work well. Not anymore. It seems to only want to upload and back up my photos when it feels like it. I've had so many photos NOT backed up when I've need them to be backed up. I even pay for extra storage and it still won't work. Not worth it. I'll use smugmug.


I love the idea of this app, yet I discovered that if I delete a photo on my phone, it also disappears here. The whole reason I decided to use this was to free up space on my phone. I contacted Customer Service and was told I would have to actually move photos manually for them to stay here so the three days it took to move things here via auto was a total waste. Once I manually move things it looks like this will be a good thing though.


It is sooo easy for you to accidentally delete your whole album of pictures. I had no backup or anything, and accidentally moved my photos to trash..... and I went to go check it and didn't have trash turned on.... so it's just gone. Forever. I know it's my fault, but for real.... just one click and boom deleted 1000+ photos. I'm highly upset and in distraught.


Pretty easy to use but 5 gbs fills up fast. I have some videos stuck in limbo so I bought an upgrade for a year but they are still stuck waiting for upload. Menu selections do not have any tools to clear them out of the que.


I love the idea that my photos are all in the same place on Amazon. If I download from any device I know where to go track them down. In the past I would have the on disc and thumb drives and then have to take them to be uploaded this is so so much better. Win win for me


Shirtly after install the app started uploading and I paused it. It had only uploaded one photo, but some of my photos that were not uploaded were missing from both the gallery and file manager. Theres no reason it should be messing with my files like that. I lost pictures within a few minutes.


Love the sugestions & year to date back photos... don't understand all of the things I've recieved to check out and not sure I like them accessing my photos all the time. Leaves me feeling a little invaded privacy wise... thats the downside. So BEWARE ALL!


Love the ability to categorize and label people by name. Wish it had the option to create collages or to share multiple photos on social media. Sometimes I have to redownload the photos in order to do so.


Nothing updates timely. I looked yesterday, no photos have been backed up since July even though my settings are correct. When I logged out after trying to backup it couldn't even find my photos. I pay for this service and I'm getting nothing :(


Best thing ever to store memories! are computers don't work can't connect the camera so Amazon photos has saved my day time and time again I came back anyting up open and on my tablet or my cell phone. It's helping me save wonderful memories that I wouldn't be able to. Super easy to backup pictures all so wonderful to get print pictures to use.


I wish there was more of a distinction between my device photos and what's already backed up or some way to exclude all the photos I've already backed up so that I can continue backing up the rest. I have four years worth and so an auto backup was not feasible. So I do a couple hundred photos at a time.


So far, I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! although i hope soon itll have more options for prints, but seriously this app is exactly what I've been needing! Automatically backs stuff up and I can order right from there. Yesssssss! Thank youuuuuu!


really enjoying the Amazon photos app. I love getting reminder each day of photos that I have taken years and years ago. also use the app to order several photo books to share with family members. Great idea for Christmas!


I love being able to see pictures I just took and now they are on your tv. I have had this for about 3 or 4 yrs and when friends come over and see the pictures as well they love it too. So I show them how to set it up they love it as well. ; )


❤ the photo app. My photos are always backed up. ●Make sure select the Wi-fi option to upload your photos when get this app or when you get a new phone.● ~They will automatically upload at anytime if you Do Not select the Wi-fi option.~


Horrible app & service. Won't upload photos when it's supposed to. Gets thousands of photos behind & won't do it automatically eventhough I've already called support & dealt with their run around & re-downloaded the app. It's not a problem with my phones. Paying extra $ for extra storage & I can't rely on this to upload. It is selective & only uploads SOME of the photos, for the first bit, I thought it was uploading everything so I deleted them off my phone & lost priceless pictures. 🖕 Horrible


Amazon Photos is an app that I quite like to use it does cause me a few crashes and pregnant pauses to be fair, I wasn't quite sure how to rate it fairly. I have leaned over the cusp of four, perhaps I should have stuck as the app often does to a leaner three? My opinion wavers with Amazon as I have bought at least partially into the brand although they are so prone to generating 💰 money, that I often feel they provide poor value by trying to be all encompassing.! Enough said. You decide.


Lost my pictures! Had the same issue as someone else here. Had a good 3,000+ pics in my phone. Figured I would store them here for safe keeping. Now memories, my taekwondo tournaments tracking my progress... ALL GONE!!! Thought letting the app erase pics after IT SAID it was uploaded would be okay. NOPE!!! Now, no way yo get them back!!! Highly disappointed😭


Simply doesn't work. Always says uploading. In the entire time I've had the app (about a month) it has uploaded 1 file out of over 1000. Our wifi works great and I even turned on the option to upload over mobile data to see if that would help. Still nothing.


Absolutely no problems in the 2 months I've been using it. It automatically uploads my photos, all i have to do is snap the picture. Downloaded photos come back as clear as when i took them. Everything has printed up nice. Have regained alot of memory not having to store the photos on my phone. Deleted Google Photos.


Great as redundant pro photo backup! As a pro photographer I love that Amazon Photos is true to its word on unlimited photo storage by not counting anything uploaded with a photo format. Even RAW! The RAW format recognition in combination with unlimited photo storage makes it super competitive in my humble opinion. Simply switch off video upload to take full advantage of unlimited photo backup by allowing it to target only photos for auto-upload, if you're ok with that feature.


If its not for the free unlimited photos, i would have just never ever installed it. This is a terrible app. The photos never upload directly from my Note 10+ gallery or even from the app itself if I have selected more than 50 pics. You cannot upload directly into folders. The interface is just terrible. Microsoft one drive is far more better than this app. It is a shame how Amazon never spend anything on which it gives for free.


I have no idea whether this is good or not. I can't get by the gatekeeper. The nix/robot characters are cut off so that I cannot see the second line. I have tried the audio prompt 3 times without success. Guess I'll stick with Costco.


Easy to use and easy to order pictures through. I was shocked they came so quick


I've been using Amazon Photo since it was first offered to Amazon Prime members as a new benefit. Years later I still use it primarily for backing up my photo's and video's. Unlimited storage is one of the many benefits, in addition to the ability to edit both video and photos.


I am very fond of the Amazon Photos app because it is a great way to organize the photos of my grandsons, which I am addicted to taking. Especially my 2 month old grandson. =) I get reminded of the photos I took the year before, and I can peruse them at my leisure. The photos are uploaded automatically and I don't even have to pay attention to it! It's quite a joy to be able to share the photos with my family who live in California because I live in Kentucky, 2000 miles away from them.


Love that you can edit pictures! I use this app alot! I just wish Amazon would give more free space and not charge you for it! That's the only bad thing wrong with this app!


It's my pleasure Amazon to use your Amazon photos the beautiful things I have created using Amazon your always give us the best I give them 5 stars because they prove the capabilities their structure and development is very professional on this app you can't go wrong I love it I never had not one problem with Amazon Photos for yrs. Thank you Amazon Photo app


Easy to use. Works well overall, but doesn't seem to upload all my photos for some reason. I still need to upload some of them manually. If that gets fixed, it's a 5 star app.


I love the peace of mind that Amazon Photos gives me by automatically backing up all the photos of my children to my cloud storage, whenever my phone is charging. Making sure that I never forget to backup my photos, and that I don't ever have to worry about loosing a single snapshot of the precious moments of their childhood. Thank you Amazon Photos ♡♡, Mom


Great app!! Backs up photos and videos without any issues. You as get periodic emails with Amazon creations made from your photo for your use and enjoyment. I know this is a photo app but I wish Amazon had a way to backup your contacts protect them as well. I recommend the app and know others will like it as well.


Very good photo storage across all devices - laptop, ipad and Android phone. I switched from DropBox bc I have Amazon Photos as part of my Amazon Prime membership. I love that Amazon Photos gives you much more photo storage space and that you can edit photos in Amazon Photos. It is easy to save photos to it and to download photos from it to whichever device I'm on or for Instagram.


Auto sync with my family means the family photos survive when the phones don't. Have been using this for years. Super easy to scroll through the timeline to find pictures at specific events and to create albums. Face recognition is also makes it easy to scroll through pictures of a particular person.


Love having this app! On dates from the past that I have taken pictures, this app ask me if I like to view them... it's awesome to see pictures I've taken in the past that I have forgotten about!!


I really enjoy having the Amazon Photo app because I no longer have to worry about important memories being lost or deleted. You can stote screen shots of important docs as well, like insurance cards or what ever paper doc you may need to keep hand without having the actual paper itself. Thank you Amazon for helping us out. Precious moments or documents are now secured thanks to this app.


compare this to google photos, amazon photo is developed by a group of amateurs. when I upload pictures from computer, why the pictures take forever to show up in my cell phone app? why there is no refresh button in cell phone app to tell the app go check with the server and show me the? latest uploads? when you upload the same picture twice, say after some edit, the app will end with error saying duplicate file name, why it can't give me an option just to overwrite? google photos is way better.
