Description
Everyone else gets 5 GB for photos and videos. Use the Groups feature to privately pool and share full-resolution photos and videos. You can view and share your photos on nearly any phone, tablet, or computer, and you can set a screensaver on your Fire TV, Echo Show, or Echo Spot. AUTO-SAVE AND BACK UP YOUR PHOTOS Set the app to Auto-Save your photos and videos from your phone so they get backed up automatically. Once your photos are stored in Amazon Photos, you can delete them from your device to make room on your phone. This free photo storage app can help you keep your photos and videos safe, even if your phone is lost or damaged. PRIME MEMBER BENEFITS Amazon Prime members get free unlimited photo storage + 5 GB video storage as part of their Prime membership. They can also share their unlimited photo storage benefit with five others by adding them to their Family Vault, and search for photos by keyword, location, or the name of the person in the photo. SEARCH FOR PHOTOS BY KEYWORD Your photos are easy to find, because the app organizes your photos automatically. Prime members can quickly find any specific photos by searching for the things in their images, like "dog," "sunset," or "Seattle."

You can pool everyone’s photos together from your latest family vacation, soccer team season, birthday party, friend’s wedding, or knitting club--or just share goofy photos with a collection of your favorite people. ACCESS PHOTOS ON ALL YOUR DEVICES Once your photos have been saved to Amazon Photos, you can access them from nearly any device. Finally move those family photos from your old laptop, your phone, and your desktop so they’re all together in one safe place.

Everything about this app seems great, unfortunately, every time— every time I scroll down in my photos, I get a couple months back and the app goes black and then crashes. This is both on my iPhone and iPad! I haven’t been able to figure out a workaround (scroll down fast, scroll down slow) and recent updates don’t seem to help. Hopefully this can get fixed and I’ll update my review.

Almost the perfect photo storage app!
by Beth in Tn on 2017/11/09 15:01
With just one or two tweaks this could be the perfect way to store photos. I love the feature where it shows you photos from this date in the past. I like the fact that the photos are organized by the date they were taken, not the date you uploaded them. This takes out the step of trying to organize the photos in the correct order. The fact that this app has unlimited storage with your prime membership is such a great value and saves so much money. But where the app falls a wee bit short, is in these ways. 1. It doesn’t tell you if you are uploading a duplicate photo. 2. There is no way to rotate the photos in the app. You have to download the photo, rotate and edit it in another app, then upload to this app. 3. When you make an album, you can’t remove the photo from the main part. So you have duplicates. At least let the people who don’t want numerous copies of the same photo delete them from the main list. But it is all in all great app and I will continue to use it. None of the issues are a deal breaker. I think if you try this app, you will like it.
Still have to use iCloud
by Yuls24 on 2018/05/25 07:32
* Review updated I started using the app after several days which were necessary to upload all the photos from my phone. There are definitely nice features. I like that the app offers you to look at the pics that were taken on the same day previous years. My biggest disappointment, however, is that the app backs up pictures as soon as they are taken (if wi-fi is available) and doesn’t update them if they are being edited. I take quite a few pics a day and, at the end of it, I edit the best of them. If they were baked up some time earlier in the day, they remain unchanged. I was hoping that Prime Photo could be a free (well, I pay for prime either way) substitute of iCloud, but, unfortunately, it can’t. As soon as I get a new phone, am I supposed to edit a couple thousand pics again?! *** I haven’t really started using the app yet, but I’m already frustrated. I have lots of pictures on my phone - around 8 thousand. I know it takes time to copy/back them up, but not that much! The app was running a few hours at night and several hours in the morning, it managed to back up only a half! My phone barely works when it’s running and they want you to keep the app open for it to work faster which means I can’t use my phone at all. I stopped myself from deleting the app several times already. I hope in a few days it’s gonna download all the pics so I could finally check out all the features.
Impressive App; Needs 1 fix
by SushiCamiChar on 2018/02/07 14:16
One thing would make this a 5 star review: Would love it if the picture was removed from the main photos page when you add it to an album. OR at least, the app needs to clearly show if the picture has been added to an album. Currently, there is no way to know which pictures I have placed in albums. This is very annoying when you have a thousand pictures to organize. Otherwise, love the unlimited storage of the ORIGINAL PICTURE SIZE with Prime membership!!! It’s TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I’m just waiting for them to take that away (please don’t take it away). Was using paid Dropbox, but I don’t have enough room to upload at original pic size (although Dropbox gives you a lot of storage, pictures are large!). This is a wonderful membership perk and well worth it!
Hard to complain when it’s free
by Bjc1234 on 2018/01/06 20:06
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.
A great alternative for extra storage
by Kricket35077 on 2018/09/27 21:31
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
Essential features missing
by Elwood_37 on 2017/11/04 20:33
This is almost a great program. However, it falls short in a number of crucial ways. Firstly, there is no way to correct the many mistakes the facial recognition software makes. When it fails to recognize that an image contains a person, I can’t manually tag it. What’s worse, it frequently misidentifies two or three people as being the same person, and there’s no way to manually disambiguate. This is an essential function that must be added, and which competitor programs already have. Frustratingly, the facial recognition 'People' folders index only the photos uploaded by your own account. They leave out all the photos of the same people in the family vault. So it’s not a very useful compilation of all the photos of somebody. Thirdly, while this app allows manual album creation, your albums are stored only on your own account, and are not visible to anyone you add to your family vault. It’d be a huge bonus to be able to share albums with your family members. I’d also really appreciate being able to rotate a photo right in my account, without having to download it to my device, rotate it in a separate program, and re-upload it to prime photo all over again. With a few fixes, this can be an excellent photo storage program.
Best cloud app
by Jaii7875 on 2018/01/15 00:52
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!
Good, but needs work,
by FoodForThought! on 2019/01/13 16:40
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!
Needs some work.
by gpelican58 on 2018/09/22 17:31
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!
App times out often ...
by Wealth Creation on 2017/11/28 17:08
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.
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.
Easy to use, but lacking some features
by Sir3nsong on 2018/11/18 16:31
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.
Great app
by bob423 on 2017/12/24 13:22
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!!
Almost Perfect Photo App
by morfit on 2018/01/23 15:34
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.
Not Quite There
by Nurse that Sings on 2018/08/11 13:59
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’.
Love it!
by D-n-V on 2018/12/14 16:29
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.
Lightroom Doesn’t Recognize iPhone photos in Prime
by User8K! on 2018/01/08 18:25
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.
Unable to move complete folders to app
by Lovelyreading11135 on 2018/12/12 10:12
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.
Excellent - now works with Live Photo’s, too
by David in LA on 2018/02/27 23:43
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.
Great way to back up photos!
by PJ Lawrence on 2018/01/05 05:39
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.
I like the storage- wish it was more versatile
by donaldsonh on 2018/07/30 00:35
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
Could be so much better
by As de corazones on 2018/02/24 19:48
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.
Great App but needs a little more tweaks!!
by LovaTkay on 2018/03/21 13:42
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!!!
Only 4 Stars For One Reason...
by Odder_or on 2018/05/14 19:33
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, Please add • A priority setting re: upload speed while the App is in the background and/or • An automatic scheduled upload/backup option Thanks! —Lisa =^..^=
It’s a nobrainer.
by Welch Famiy - 6 on 2018/10/19 13:35
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!
Great app!
by 🐘EllaPhant🐘 on 2018/04/08 15:03
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!
Cannot control uploads
by LeakyLandy on 2018/12/23 16:12
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.
Been a lifesaver!
by Eericablondiee on 2018/07/20 17:29
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!
Great App! Love the photo Storage
by Shelbyluwho on 2017/10/13 12:45
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!
Generally great, but...
by thr33tw00 on 2018/09/21 10:10
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.
Decent app but constantly nagging
by jstratman on 2019/01/01 17:22
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.
Love the ease of saving pictures but printing can be difficult
by pick-mama on 2018/12/08 01:26
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.)
Great app but too easy for others to access all photos not just selected
by thawsout on 2018/02/27 00:07
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.

Love everything except some bugs
by Libeanbean on 2017/09/30 13:26
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.
Good but needs work
by Flappys Wingless Uncle on 2018/09/21 00:12
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.
Latest update removed memories for family members
by WolvemanX on 2019/01/01 15:22
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.
Quite close to perfect
by EJames9029 on 2018/02/15 16:07
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.
A bit slow from phone
by Travlin Coastie on 2018/04/22 12:53
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.
Love it
by Tony Zapata on 2018/11/28 05:36
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?
Wonderful App
by JohnRWms on 2017/12/20 18:39
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.
Facial Recognition Buggy
by brYsturr on 2017/09/27 00:52
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.
The Best
by Schorrgirl on 2018/02/24 21:32
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
Think long and hard before you do this...
by JavsandCass on 2019/01/10 03:44
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
Bare bones, but very good
by War2d2 on 2018/10/30 17:47
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.
Excellent App
by CM18! on 2018/10/15 16:04
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!
Almost perfect
by KatieH987 on 2019/01/04 21:33
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.
Mostly fine
by moonhunt18 on 2018/04/02 19:47
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.)
Easy and no glitches like google
by Pierce Home on 2018/02/13 02:01
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.

Everything about this app seems great, unfortunately, every time— every time I scroll down in my photos, I get a couple months back and the app goes black and then crashes. This is both on my iPhone and iPad! I haven’t been able to figure out a workaround (scroll down fast, scroll down slow) and recent updates don’t seem to help. Hopefully this can get fixed and I’ll update my review.

Almost the perfect photo storage app!
by Beth in Tn on 2017/11/09 15:01
With just one or two tweaks this could be the perfect way to store photos. I love the feature where it shows you photos from this date in the past. I like the fact that the photos are organized by the date they were taken, not the date you uploaded them. This takes out the step of trying to organize the photos in the correct order. The fact that this app has unlimited storage with your prime membership is such a great value and saves so much money. But where the app falls a wee bit short, is in these ways. 1. It doesn’t tell you if you are uploading a duplicate photo. 2. There is no way to rotate the photos in the app. You have to download the photo, rotate and edit it in another app, then upload to this app. 3. When you make an album, you can’t remove the photo from the main part. So you have duplicates. At least let the people who don’t want numerous copies of the same photo delete them from the main list. But it is all in all great app and I will continue to use it. None of the issues are a deal breaker. I think if you try this app, you will like it.
Still have to use iCloud
by Yuls24 on 2018/05/25 07:32
* Review updated I started using the app after several days which were necessary to upload all the photos from my phone. There are definitely nice features. I like that the app offers you to look at the pics that were taken on the same day previous years. My biggest disappointment, however, is that the app backs up pictures as soon as they are taken (if wi-fi is available) and doesn’t update them if they are being edited. I take quite a few pics a day and, at the end of it, I edit the best of them. If they were baked up some time earlier in the day, they remain unchanged. I was hoping that Prime Photo could be a free (well, I pay for prime either way) substitute of iCloud, but, unfortunately, it can’t. As soon as I get a new phone, am I supposed to edit a couple thousand pics again?! *** I haven’t really started using the app yet, but I’m already frustrated. I have lots of pictures on my phone - around 8 thousand. I know it takes time to copy/back them up, but not that much! The app was running a few hours at night and several hours in the morning, it managed to back up only a half! My phone barely works when it’s running and they want you to keep the app open for it to work faster which means I can’t use my phone at all. I stopped myself from deleting the app several times already. I hope in a few days it’s gonna download all the pics so I could finally check out all the features.
Impressive App; Needs 1 fix
by SushiCamiChar on 2018/02/07 14:16
One thing would make this a 5 star review: Would love it if the picture was removed from the main photos page when you add it to an album. OR at least, the app needs to clearly show if the picture has been added to an album. Currently, there is no way to know which pictures I have placed in albums. This is very annoying when you have a thousand pictures to organize. Otherwise, love the unlimited storage of the ORIGINAL PICTURE SIZE with Prime membership!!! It’s TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I’m just waiting for them to take that away (please don’t take it away). Was using paid Dropbox, but I don’t have enough room to upload at original pic size (although Dropbox gives you a lot of storage, pictures are large!). This is a wonderful membership perk and well worth it!
Hard to complain when it’s free
by Bjc1234 on 2018/01/06 20:06
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.
A great alternative for extra storage
by Kricket35077 on 2018/09/27 21:31
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
Essential features missing
by Elwood_37 on 2017/11/04 20:33
This is almost a great program. However, it falls short in a number of crucial ways. Firstly, there is no way to correct the many mistakes the facial recognition software makes. When it fails to recognize that an image contains a person, I can’t manually tag it. What’s worse, it frequently misidentifies two or three people as being the same person, and there’s no way to manually disambiguate. This is an essential function that must be added, and which competitor programs already have. Frustratingly, the facial recognition 'People' folders index only the photos uploaded by your own account. They leave out all the photos of the same people in the family vault. So it’s not a very useful compilation of all the photos of somebody. Thirdly, while this app allows manual album creation, your albums are stored only on your own account, and are not visible to anyone you add to your family vault. It’d be a huge bonus to be able to share albums with your family members. I’d also really appreciate being able to rotate a photo right in my account, without having to download it to my device, rotate it in a separate program, and re-upload it to prime photo all over again. With a few fixes, this can be an excellent photo storage program.
Best cloud app
by Jaii7875 on 2018/01/15 00:52
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!
Good, but needs work,
by FoodForThought! on 2019/01/13 16:40
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!
Needs some work.
by gpelican58 on 2018/09/22 17:31
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!
App times out often ...
by Wealth Creation on 2017/11/28 17:08
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.
Really really great photo storage but...
by emyopdx on 2017/10/04 00:16
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.
Easy to use, but lacking some features
by Sir3nsong on 2018/11/18 16:31
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.
Great app
by bob423 on 2017/12/24 13:22
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!!
Almost Perfect Photo App
by morfit on 2018/01/23 15:34
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.
Not Quite There
by Nurse that Sings on 2018/08/11 13:59
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’.
Love it!
by D-n-V on 2018/12/14 16:29
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.
Lightroom Doesn’t Recognize iPhone photos in Prime
by User8K! on 2018/01/08 18:25
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.
Unable to move complete folders to app
by Lovelyreading11135 on 2018/12/12 10:12
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.
Excellent - now works with Live Photo’s, too
by David in LA on 2018/02/27 23:43
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.
Great way to back up photos!
by PJ Lawrence on 2018/01/05 05:39
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.
I like the storage- wish it was more versatile
by donaldsonh on 2018/07/30 00:35
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
Could be so much better
by As de corazones on 2018/02/24 19:48
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.
Great App but needs a little more tweaks!!
by LovaTkay on 2018/03/21 13:42
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!!!
Only 4 Stars For One Reason...
by Odder_or on 2018/05/14 19:33
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, Please add • A priority setting re: upload speed while the App is in the background and/or • An automatic scheduled upload/backup option Thanks! —Lisa =^..^=
It’s a nobrainer.
by Welch Famiy - 6 on 2018/10/19 13:35
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!
Great app!
by 🐘EllaPhant🐘 on 2018/04/08 15:03
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!
Cannot control uploads
by LeakyLandy on 2018/12/23 16:12
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.
Been a lifesaver!
by Eericablondiee on 2018/07/20 17:29
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!
Great App! Love the photo Storage
by Shelbyluwho on 2017/10/13 12:45
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!
Generally great, but...
by thr33tw00 on 2018/09/21 10:10
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.
Decent app but constantly nagging
by jstratman on 2019/01/01 17:22
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.
Love the ease of saving pictures but printing can be difficult
by pick-mama on 2018/12/08 01:26
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.)
Great app but too easy for others to access all photos not just selected
by thawsout on 2018/02/27 00:07
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.

Love everything except some bugs
by Libeanbean on 2017/09/30 13:26
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.
Good but needs work
by Flappys Wingless Uncle on 2018/09/21 00:12
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.
Latest update removed memories for family members
by WolvemanX on 2019/01/01 15:22
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.
Quite close to perfect
by EJames9029 on 2018/02/15 16:07
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.
A bit slow from phone
by Travlin Coastie on 2018/04/22 12:53
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.
Love it
by Tony Zapata on 2018/11/28 05:36
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?
Wonderful App
by JohnRWms on 2017/12/20 18:39
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.
Facial Recognition Buggy
by brYsturr on 2017/09/27 00:52
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.
The Best
by Schorrgirl on 2018/02/24 21:32
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
Think long and hard before you do this...
by JavsandCass on 2019/01/10 03:44
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
Bare bones, but very good
by War2d2 on 2018/10/30 17:47
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.
Excellent App
by CM18! on 2018/10/15 16:04
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!
Almost perfect
by KatieH987 on 2019/01/04 21:33
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.
Mostly fine
by moonhunt18 on 2018/04/02 19:47
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.)
Easy and no glitches like google
by Pierce Home on 2018/02/13 02:01
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.
