Update:Amazon fixed the app crash the next day via an update. So now I can review the actual app and I’m increasing it to 4 stars. It’s fun, intuitive, pretty fast, and of course, free. So why not 5 stars? Amazon has pushed for its Prime members to switch to their app but two things I find extremely frustrating. 1) No control over which pictures/videos I upload. Am I missing something? It’s all or nothing and I have 28,000 items? Even I didn’t know I had that many. Which brings me to 2) I have 28,000 items! It’s taking forever to upload. Apparently, the app has to be open and in the foreground to upload. It’s going to take weeks at this rate. I need to use my phone and I’m busy working etc. There should be a way to manage what’s uploaded. Like say the the last 2 weeks or the last 6 months or a time frame the user can set so uploads can be managed. And of course, a way to exclude items. And uploads must load in the background! For these reasons I almost gave it 3 stars, but like I said, it’s s nice format and a nice change from Photos. Previous review: Just got the Amazon offer to try the Amazon Photos App. But after installing on my iPhone XR running the latest iOS software, the app crashes after I login. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, deleted and rebooted my phone and reinstalled, and it still crashes. I’ll update my review if it ever works.
If you are a prime member, this app is a must-have. For those who are familiar with iCloud on the iPhone, this app is just like that but better since you don’t have to pay for the storage if you are a Prime member. It doesn’t upload to amazons cloud instantly like they would to the iCloud; however, you just open the Amazon Photos app and your photos begin to automatically download to your Amazon cloud. It’s very quick and easy. The best feature is the fact that you have unlimited photo storage for no extra charge. I take tons of photos with my cannon and upload them to my account. I love this Amazon membership feature.
Been using for a few months and very pleased so far. Could be a little easier to navigate, but still 5-star worthy.
Easiest way to back up photos
Would like to have more storage included for videos as well
Great app - best way to organize all your photos and videos
It’s nice to know that all of my photos are safely stored!
I love having a place to store my photos . And not take up too much space in my phone . The only bad thing is it gives you a limited amount of space for videos .
the ipad version crashes after I updated to latest version. Quick response to my complaint by support. The new update worked and I am back to being “happy”..ha!
