What's New in Version 2.18.1
Fantastic for a free product
Google Photos is just one of the best options for storing all your photos on the cloud. At least for me, since my university has an agreement with Google for which I have unlimited storage. So, once my photos are processed (I use other packages for editing) I store them there. Also, the editing of properties like the date makes really easy to have them all in chronological order, even for some old scanned photos, for which I adjust the date to the one when the original photo was taken.
I have read so many unfair reviews for Google Photos, perhaps they wanted to be something else. But for me it has become my definitive photo collection.
Useful and easy
Before downloading this app, I had over 3,000 photos on my phone taking up space that I could've been using for apps or new memories. With the app, I was easily able to back up my entire photo album (unlimited space) by just signing into my Google account and pressing a few buttons. It took a while because u was only allowing it to back up on wifi, but within a day all of my photos were secure in the cloud. Google photos also made it easy to get rid of the photos on my phone in one step. I highly recommend this app, especially because too many photos seems to be a very common problem.
Comprehensive but too automatic
It takes care of a lot of things, but I wish it would allow you to back things up selectively. I have some videos that I don't want to delete but that I also don't need backed up. But every time I connect to wifi it tries to back these things up, and doesn't finish.
Also, the app needs better music choices for the videos it makes out of your photos. I have pictures of people playing the violin and cello and it gives them a background of some silly jazz-ish or pop-ish music with totally different instruments. I usually don't save or share the automatic videos because of the inappropriate background music.
