Price Category Version Released Last Updated Size Compatibility Age
Free Photo & Video 5.3.0 May 09, 2013 May 21, 2018 129.2 MB iOS 9.1 or later 4+
New in version 5.3.0

- New Groups feature - share photos and albums privately with friends and family.
- General bug fixes and improvements.


Safely store all your full-resolution photos on Prime Photos from Amazon. Use this free app to back up, organize, and share all of the photos and videos from your phone, computer, and other devices.
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.

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 Prime 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.

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.

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."

Collaborate and share photos and albums with your friends and family by inviting them to a private, invitation-only Prime Photos Group. You can pool everyone’s photos together from your latest family vacation, soccer team season, birthday party, friend’s wedding, or knitting club--or just share goofy photos with a collection of your favorite people.

Once your photos have been saved to Prime Photos, you can access them from nearly any device. Finally move those family photos from your old laptop, your phone, and your desktop so they’re all together in one safe place.

- Auto-save photos for easy back up and to free up memory on your phone.
- Back up your photos and videos securely with Amazon.
- Share photos and albums via SMS, email, other apps, or privately with Groups.
- See your photos on your Fire TV, tablet, computer, or on the Echo Show, where available.
- Prime members can search photos by keyword, location, and more.

Prime Photos from Amazon offers secure cloud storage and online backup for your photos and videos. This free online storage app lets you upload, view, and share your important photos right on your phone.

Still no heic support
cbDejaVu on 5/24/2018
This app is useless until amazon gets around to supporting the native format the pictures are stored in. Nobody wants their photos blown up to a larger size for long term storage. Every Operating system supports heic now so it would be nice if amazon gets with it and allows photos to be backed up in their native format without converting it to the legacy jpg format increasing its file size and losing the features the native format brings to your photos.
Great and useful
monrec on 5/23/2018
This is a great and useful app. Easy to use and always comes in handy. I love Amazon’s priducts and services and I love the way they integrate with each other. Good eco system and excellent apps.
I love using this app
Vicker S on 5/22/2018
Each morning I can go into My photo app and see what has happened on this date for previous years. It makes it fun to see what I have done. Something as small as a photo of a flower I had taken or a trip to the beach. It brings back good memories. I have not had any problems downloading or viewing my photos.
Great photo storage
EnriquezHome on 5/22/2018
Easy to share
Another positive for having Prime
Nbrekalo on 5/22/2018
I am glad that Amazon backs up my photos for when my device tanks.
Awesome photo organizer
DDKns on 5/22/2018
I love how it can sort by date and place and even give you alerts to take a peek at photos from “this day” X number of years ago - helps keep the fun memories alive and fresh.
Great app!
Plphoenix on 5/21/2018
Useful app
Nice backup program
General_AL on 5/21/2018
Nice automatic back up program.
Great unlimited storage
pauladebrosse on 5/20/2018
I love that it sorts by day taken. Would’ve great if it removed from main list when you put in an album. Highly recommend.
Missing Critical Features
gburgalum01 on 5/19/2018
This app is so behind the times. It doesn’t even let you add captions to photos.
GR8busdriver on 5/19/2018
Great place to store your pictures and videos. So you delete your pictures on your phone and return to amazon to retrieve them. Your phone will be faster.
Trusted App
CJ_AR on 5/19/2018
I am very happy to use this app as the photo backup on my phone. This brings exciting features when coupled with Fire Stick and makes it easier for viewing the pictures on big screen.
Working great
Gunisettys on 5/18/2018
Very useful to me
John Linehan on 5/17/2018
Love it
So far frustrating - it’s too slow
Yuls24 on 5/17/2018
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.
Great app works with these
flyboymark on 5/17/2018
Absolutely love this app it downloads in the background. I thought I lost a bunch of pictures of my hard drive. However I found out soon enough then Amazon photo save the day With a back up. well done Amazon.
My Review
ScottFerriss1964 on 5/16/2018
My only critique would be the option to display photos in alphabetical order instead of the date options, which seems to be the only options available. Otherwise great app.
As brilliant as it says
Brightangi on 5/16/2018
I am constantly filling up my storage and getting messages about it- due to photos. This app has saved me
Almost perfect
mchj85 on 5/16/2018
The only thing that would make this better, IMO, is if it had a feature where you could ask it to delete the photos from your phone that are already backed up. Google Photos has this feature and it makes everything so easy and you don’t have to second guess if a specific photo really got backed up or not!
Great App
Joel1273 on 5/15/2018
It’s very user friendly and a great organizer. It’s wonderful and there is no regret.
Need to select multiple photos
Mike&Ruth on 5/15/2018
I am so happy to have discovered this service for backing up photos. My kids have a habit if taking my phone and taking dozens of pictures of basically nothing. It would be nice to have the ability to select multiple photos at once with a swipe instead of individually clicking each. The native photo app on the iphone has a click and drag ability which would be nice to be applied here too. Otherwise nice app!
Prime photos
Doozie104 on 5/14/2018
I think this a fantastic app! No issues with it at all!
Only 4 Stars For One Reason...
Odder_or on 5/14/2018
I love this app and the services that it offers. I appreciate that it exists and provides a reliable, unlimited, user friendly way to back up pictures. The one and only reason it is not 5 stars for me is that I would like to have a setting that keeps the uploading priority highest, even when I only have the app going in the background. Alternatively or in addition I would like to have a setting option that allows my phone to automatically upload my photos in the middle of the night, when by bandwidth is less taxed and in demand. In my area DSL is the fastest connection available, and since I often do not remember to turn on the Prime Photos App, often times when I am uploading it is hundreds (or thousands!) of photos at a time. So to recap through all those run on sentences; Dear Prime PTB, Please add • A priority setting re: upload speed while the App is in the background and/or • An automatic scheduled upload/backup option Thanks! —Lisa =^..^=
Love this app and everything that comes with Amazon Prime
GTR2013Nate on 5/13/2018
We have over 24 thousand photos saved on Amazon. We obviously love it.
Stop begging for a review
The toto on 5/13/2018
This is beyond pathetic.
Great app
tmathison on 5/11/2018
Really like this app. It always uploads the new pics and nice to have another way to save the pics
Getting worse
Flaury88 on 5/10/2018
As a Prime member I’ve been very satisfied with the various Amazon services. This app was great when I first started using it. Lately it started not automatically saving my photos and it has progressively gotten worse. Step up to the plate Amazon. There’s competition out there!
Savior for my phone’s storage
Chocolate Chip Kelly on 5/9/2018
This app does wonders for keeping my phone’s hard drive from filling with photos. It’s great that the upload can be scheduled, and set to only happen on WiFi. And the unlimited storage is immensely preferable to the 5GB limit to Apple’s iCloud backup. I wish there was a more intuitive way to mark photos as ignored by the backup, e.g. for work materials that I don’t want on my personal Amazon account. Other than that, I’m entirely pleased.
I agree...almost perfect!
Lil.missy6 on 5/9/2018
I think this app is AWESOME everything is backed up with little to energy! And there’s no limit?!!! That’s the best feature of all! The ONE thing that stands out is I find that if I also use my PC/laptop my iPhone automatically syncs and also downloads all my new my Amazon Drive (along with One Box which is a joke compared). It doesn’t recognize that a photo that has already been updated on my phone into PRIME PHOTOS. I end up with duplicates and sometimes more. I know I can turn off the drive or this app but I would prefer to have access on my phone to same pictures that are on my pc. Maybe it’s user error but deleting duplicates is no fun!
krdmld on 5/9/2018
I wish if you put picture in a folder it would take them out of All Photos. Otherwise I love this App.
Game Changer
MsLeahJean on 5/8/2018
Wow! What a time saver.
Great so far!
Mirieine on 5/8/2018
Very easy to use, and love knowing that my photos are all backed up!
Almost beats Google with one HUGE exception
Andru A on 5/7/2018
Storage of full resolution photos? Not with Google, but yes with Amazon. Ability to upload and just sync photos? Not with Google, yes with Amazon. Limit on upload size of photos? 75mb with Google, none with Amazon. Here is where Amazon FAILS and is deal breaker: Limit on upload size of videos? 26gb on Amazon, 106gb on Google. So if you shoot 4k resolution on any modern mobile device, you can’t back up those videos.
Great app
Injun17 on 5/7/2018
Have recently started using this app. So far it has been extremely user friendly and a great added benefit I didn’t know I had with prime.
Missing quite bit basic features
globalhunter2018 on 5/5/2018
Would be a five star app if catch up some basic features that Google Photos has, such as notation box for every pic/ video & Geo data display.
Great photo save option
JoCRobles on 5/4/2018
Takes a little to move pics from phone but once complete, places pics in chronological order.
No print utility
Ordway2000 on 5/3/2018
It is beyond me that they do not have a print utility for iPad. I get that they are trying to drive people to print services bit they also sell ink and printers. Give me a break!!!
Love it!
Jmeezyy on 5/3/2018
Everything I need. Perfect!
Nice app
Nassifawwad on 5/3/2018
It’s a great app. I just wish it had more video storage
Error encountred
Bob’s Mac Pro on 5/2/2018
I attempted to delete an accidental 5 times, program prompted me to try again...5 is my limit. Before this error I would’ve rated this app five stars...
Love it
music=happiness on 5/2/2018
Easy to use and better storage than one drive.
Support for live photos
nstar728 on 5/2/2018
Finally supports Live Photos! Still needs to work on HEIC though.
Could be one of the best!
Rach3775324780084 on 5/2/2018
I love this photo app! I would normally give it 5 stars but I can’t. I COULD give it 5 stars when they add an option to allow you to get prints or add them to a CD/Drive.. But you will love this app! For its convenience, storage, and organization!!
Reloads photos you just deleted.
Rimms04 on 5/1/2018
Maybe I’m an idiot and just don’t get it. I deleted photos through APhoto and the next time I opened the app, the photos I just deleted were right back. Thought this app had smarter algorithms to fool proof that. That’s my only complaint. Other than that, great filters on the app. Categorizes everything chronologically and you can chose what you are looking for so better narrow your search for specific photos.
Doesn’t allow favorites upload
Drewsonian on 4/30/2018
I only want to upload my favorites so they sync up to my Fire TV screen saver, but there’s no way to see what photos are marked as favorite in the app.
Thank god!
M.S. Rainey on 4/30/2018
To have unlimited photo storage with prime I save a hell of a lot of space on my phone! I love being able to create and buy print work of my photos too! I’m pleased.
Sending pics to iPhone messenger
Nessie301 on 4/29/2018
I don’t know if I don’t understand how to do this or it doesn’t exist. My prime Photos won’t allow this it appears. Tried several different ways still nothing. So had to keep my IPhoto’s. Is there confluence? Not good. Love it otherwise.
auger500 on 4/29/2018
Work pretty well
Keeps crashing. Won't even open
Tbone4325 on 4/29/2018
Please update.
Simple to use
Dr-wayne on 4/28/2018
So far, this is the leading photo capture/backup/view app I’ve used. I don’t have much to describe because it just does ‘It’ and I’m done. Thanks guys for keeping it simple.
