I was living the full-storage life. You know...when anytime something important or special happens, you try to take a photo but you can’t? I even cheated the system frequently and took photos through the Instagram app and saved them to my phone so that I could still take photos. Yeah well...my phone started crashing (#toomanyphotos) so I had to figure out a different solution. In waltzes google photos. Blessed assurance, y’all! I deleted two apps to make room for this one on my phone. As soon as I had backed up enough photos, I re-downloaded the two apps and then continued backing up my photos. -which happened to take about 5 minutes of backing up before I could download those apps again. THEN, I downloaded another app to look for plane tickets to São Paulo (guys, this storage is FREE!!) and checked the progress of the backup between comparing flights and learning Portuguese. True story. I was delighted to find that I could delete several thousand photos off of my phone, yet still access them quickly through this easy to use app. BLOWN.A.WAY. Guys. If you’ve deleted the “Stocks” app, every text message and attachment, and have resigned yourself to drawing photos of your friends and family on special occasions because your phone is out of storage and you don’t want to pay $100...GET THIS APP. 👊🏻 Tso good.

It’s a bit confusing but what they are storing for me is pretty adequate for my needs. It would be nice to know I was storing the original quality but I don’t need another monthly bill besides Google Drive. It’s awesome the way they rotate some of the photos for you or give you that option. I wish they would do more in terms of the facial recognition so that you can correctly date some of your photographs were the dates were stripped in the uploading process which for me was a bit of a hellish experience because it crashed while uploading. I got past all that and everything I own is in my Google library I just don’t have them sorted properly. I’m hoping this will be done automatically in the future using the facial recognition technology otherwise I have to spend years fixing my library. Another suggestion would be if they would show you your duplicates which are close to exact duplicates so that you can delete them on your own. Sometimes it appears to be refusing duplicates but it’s hard to tell exactly what Google is doing behind the scenes occasionally I’ll see a duplicate missing other times I find odd photos in my trash. It would be nice to know exactly what’s happening with them folders. Those are all my suggestions and why I don’t have five stars I appreciate the free storage in the meantime hoping I won’t have to go with higher quality photos in the future.

This is the first review for an app I have ever wrote in my 9 years of using Apple products from iPhones to iPods. Genuinely this is the absolute BEST solution to modern photo issues on mobile devices to date. I have all my photos downloaded to my phone, and they all download to my other devices as well. When I delete it on one device it does it on the other too. All my photos are fully HD and even Live Photo’s show up as videos/gifs. When the hopefully not inevitable day comes and I break my phone, I will never have to worry that I lost my photos, the biggest fear for first world citizens of the world nowadays, because there will always be a copy saved somewhere. On top of the convenience of this app, with it not only being full compatible with everything, but just overall simple and easy to use. It completely devours it’s competition due to its unlimited storage and functionality. Never again will I receive the obnoxious notification that my 5gb iCloud storage is almost full on a phone that has 128gb. With APPLE telling me that I have to PAY for more storage that is NOT even UNLIMITED and not nearly as compatible across non-Apple devices as google photos. Google has always been the go-to for tools online, and they outdid themselves on this one. Hands down to them. 5/5.

I am constantly taking pictures everywhere I go of everything I see. I also have a terrible habit of hoarding screen shots. I use to have to connect my phone to my laptop just so I could clear up space. Which then took up a lot of space on my laptop. Then I would spend so much time & money going through my pictures deciding which to delete and which to print off. I’ve tried many other online storage websites but they usually have a limit for the free account or they will delete your photos if you don’t log in often enough. This app not only makes uploading easy, it also hardly takes up any storage space on your phone, the upload is quick, it ask if you want to clear your phone storage once upload is complete, you can still access ALL of your photos by simply opening the app, you can access and upload your computer photos to your account easily, it has awesome tools you can utilize(collage, movie, gif, filters, etc), & if you’re like me you’ll love that you can still organize everything into albums!! Oh and did I mention it’s FREE unlimited storage with high definition?! Just finished uploading 6,038 photos/videos from my laptop & 949 photos/videos from my phone!! Download this app! You won’t be disappointed!! ♥️😍
