Best photo/video vacuum ever

Google photos automatically backs up all your photos/videos to one Google account for free. On the iPhone/iPad, it's not completely automatic in that you have to occasionally open the app and tap assistant to see that the backup is started, but it's not a big deal to open it here and there. On my iMac, the plugin does it automatically. Pretty much unlimited storage (2 pentabytes or something like that?) It also makes deleting them from your phone a piece of cake. Automatically finds out which ones have been synced already so you don't have to worry about deleting something that hasn't been backed up (this is a awesome feature...hate that other services make you keep two copies, one in the cloud and one on your device...I want to free up space from my device, not have to buy more) Another feature I like is how it automatically does a lot of organizing for you. This isn't the best app for type A ppl who like to organize their photos in folders and sub folders. You can easily create albums, which is useful for grouping photos from an event, but if you're looking for a super organized folders within folders within folders, you won't get it with Google Photos. This app does a lot of the organization for you surprisingly well. It's easy to search by face, date, or random keywords like mountain. My cousin has been using it for 3 or 4 years and for me hooked last summer. Excellent app.

It’s a scary kind of amazing!

I initially got the Google Photos app so that I could backup all my photos across all devices to one central location. It works great as a backup device... install it on your phone and any picture you take is nicely backed up to the cloud. Photos on your PC? No problem, a little app install and then everything is going to your google photos page. Amazing things: it catalogs tons of stuff... faces (which you can attach names to), your pets, places, objects, etc. Want to see pics you’ve taken that contain mountains? Just type mountains and you’ll see any photo you’ve taken with mountains in it. Want to see all the pics you’ve taken of your friend Bob? Click on Bob’s face and they are all there in chronological order. The scary amazing: it will take your pics and vids and do stuff with them... it will stylize photos, it will stitch photos together, it will put photos together and animate them. It will make a movie with your photos around a theme and add music. It will even take clips from your videos and make a movie out of that. Recently I opened my Google Photos app and there is a new movie it made called “They Grow Up So Fast” (yes, it gives the stuff it makes titles too) and it was short clips from a bunch of videos I’ve taken of my son from when he was a newborn until now at 15 months old... it literally brought a joyful tear to my eye. Get this app, you won’t be disappointed!

Phenomenal

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.
