You can access all your photos on nearly any device, and share a single photo or a whole album with family and friends, however you choose: publicly via social media or privately in a Group.
AUTO-SAVE AND BACK UP YOUR PHOTOS
You can 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 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."

Ratings and Reviews
Unnavigable and Years Behind Industry Norms
The prime photos app continues to lag behind other major photo and video storage competitors. As a paid account holder I have nearly 100,000 photos and nearly 1,300 videos stored in this system – and I am doing so simply because of the price for the storage volume. My greatest disappointment came when I realized that it was actually easier to review my photo and video collection on the Fire TV interface then it is on my mobile phone (which snaps many of the pictures) and on my desktop computer. Even when I know which specific photo I want to find, such as knowing the date of the photo or who is in the photo, I have to wish myself luck every time I begin the search. “Search” must also be used in quotes, because “searching” actually involves endless scrolling and waiting for images to load. It is impossible to type in an exact date, or month and year combination, and see only the photos from that specified timeframe. In fact, I have no idea what the results are that are actually returned when you enter a date or a month–year as a search term because the results are nonsensical.
So, Prime Photos—good for storage volume, mediocre at photo management. This service desperately needs further development.
Almost the perfect photo storage app!
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
* 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.
