PlayMemories Online is a cloud-based photo and video service by Sony that allows you to organize your photos captured by a camera or smartphone.
By simply enabling the "All Sync" function, photos stored on your smartphone and computer are automatically uploaded to the cloud.
The service is free, and there is no limit to the number of photos you can upload.
・All in one place
All your photos are organized in one place and can be displayed in the same manner on any device.
If the same photo exists in several devices, the duplicated photos will not be displayed.
Your big collection of photos are automatically arranged in an easy-to-view layout. Not only can you sort photos by date, but you can also display your photos in a larger size.
(Notice) If an uploaded photo is greater than 1920 pixels on either of its sides, it will automatically be resized so that the corresponding side is 1920 pixels with using the All Sync feature.
(Notice) 5 GB of cloud storage is available for your videos and original size photos.

Ratings and Reviews
This is the first time in my life that I have ever gone to the trouble of reviewing an app. But this app is so terrible, and so infuriating to even try to use, that I had to write a review. You’ll find that you can’t even log on. The steps that you have to go through to “prove that you’re not a robot“ are seemingly endless. And when the program will not except the proof that you try to supply that you’re not a robot, you’ll find yourself walking out and then trying again. And then the same thing will happen. And it will drive you insane. You might even think that you’re on candid camera show, and there are crowds of people watching you to see if you eventually you’ll go crazy. It’s amazing to me that the designers haven’t fix this yet. Or at a minimum that I haven’t pulled it off the market, given how totally inoperational it is.
How many times do I have to find a street sign?
I’ve never left a review but feel inclined after trying to download this app and sign up for a Sony account. WHAT is the deal with the verification to prove you’re not a robot? I was never able to make it past the “choose every square that has a street sign” step because it continued to serve me dozens of street signs with no end in sight. After 5 minutes I just couldn’t hunt for street signs, buses, and cars anymore. This is insane.
It didn’t back up any videos or screenshots
It only backed up the JPEG photos from my iPhone 5s. It didn’t back up any videos or even screenshots since the screenshots are in PNG format. It wouldn’t be able to back up anything on my newer iPhone 7 since none of my photos are in JPEG format. They are all in the new HEIF format. Fortunately, I use Google Photos for my iPhone 7.
