Pretty nice auto backup with room for improvement
Auto backup is pretty fast, and I love the simplicity of creating and adding to albums. But there are a few things I'd where I hope to see improvements in the future:
1. If a photo is deleted in the main backup folder, it is deleted from albums as well. I did not find this out until I lost my daughter's artwork. Fortunately, I still have the original in iPhoto, but this brings me to the second issue...
2. If a picture has been deleted and you want to add it back manually, you can't unless you go in and change the title of the photo so auto back up doesn't see it as already having been uploaded, which is a huge pain if you need to do it to a huge swath of photos. If you want to add a photo manually, you should just be able to...think about how often you might edit a photo in another app. You can't upload these unless you change their title.
3. The family sharing album is really cool, but it would be great to see expansion of its organization capabilities. I've also not been able to add a family member, and I've called support, and they still don't know why it's not working.
Good app but somewhat cumbersome
I like this app especially because it's free and provides a lot of much needed storage for my large collection of family pictures. I find that it's not as intuitive or user friendly as I would like because uploaded pictures not only takes a lot of time but it's also difficult to tell if I am uploading duplicates which I want to avoid. It's a little confusing to understand how the different albums interface with each other as well. I also don't like that every photo taken by either my wife or me is automatically uploaded to our common album. I would like to see a more user friendly sorting interface and to be able to determine if I have uploaded duplicate pictures. Otherwise, this is a great way to consolidate all of our pictures in one place and have them backed up at the same time.
Very Happy with Prime Photos
When I found out this was available for free for Prime subscribers I immediately switched from the previous backup system I was using. I love that it is unlimited storage of full size photos. Others usually offer unlimited storage for reduced file sizes. With Prime Photos I also sprung for the $60 per year for unlimited video and file storage. I just really enjoy the peace of mind that everything is backed up in one place and accessible anywhere. Also super cool that we can view our photos on TV with our Fire Stick! There are a few things they can do to make Prime Photos a little more sophisticated, for example the ability to hide certain "people" - like the strangers in the background of photos - but overall I am very happy with this service and would recommend to anyone.
