Great Pic App

Able to do cool things with the app.
Horrible app
Chubz62 on 6/22/2017
I wish o could give this bad app 0 stars. While in Mexico I took over 100 pictures and when i got back into the states I uploaded all my photos to google photos and when it finished I saw that it said finished backing up so I deleted the originals from my iPhone and now when I go and try to see them it shows a white screen on them and I cannot see the again and now all my memories are gone thanks to this horrible app. Next time fix your stupid bug where it shows that photos done uploading. I hate your stupid app google photos my memories are forever gone.
Better than the cloud

I get to save every thing until I finally get around to printing some out. And I love the collage feature.

Every time I came across my kids' old pictures in the assistant, I thank the product.
Why doesn't everyone have this?
Breelife on 6/22/2017
I don't know how I went this long without this. Uploading photos to iCloud is a nightmare and they make it impossible to get them anywhere else. This is amazing! Unlimited space, so it's better than Dropbox! Way faster that Shutterfly! And it's easy to organize your photos and save hem back to phone to post or edit. Moving to a new phone was the easiest thing I've done all year because of this. LOVE IT.
Some problems....
llcriswell on 6/22/2017
Backup takes forever. It usually stops backing up before it is finished, and has to start all over. Repeat.

Must have

Jason1Jenkins on 6/22/2017

Love this app!
Lagurly on 6/22/2017
It makes it so much easy to download and find your pics. Love that I will never loose my pics... my phone won't be out of data and love that it shows you pics from exactly a year ago. Would recommend this app definitely!
Wow this is one of the Best Apps

Delete Duplicates
NikkNaym on 6/22/2017
The app is great, however, it could use a feature that gets rid of duplicates. You guys claim that Google Photos avoids uploading duplicates, but my friends and I have seen no evidence of that. Every once in a while I'll run into a a photo I knew I saw earlier when scrolling through. It's very frustrating and annoying to have to dig through your photos to find them. What would be great is a feature that identifies duplicates and allows you to choose which you want to delete.
The Best!
FitProSF on 6/22/2017
The best photo app and storage service!
Great app
yonny622 on 6/22/2017
Great app to store all your photos with unlimited space. So far I've enjoyed this app. I particularly enjoy the automatic animations. Needs improvement in some areas like renaming photos.
The best...
Margypants on 6/22/2017
Google does the job once again!
Best thing Google ever did
justralph on 6/22/2017
Best app ever! It solves the where, how and who of a generation that takes thousands of pics a year. Bravo Google! It's all in one place and the added tricks of creating gifs and collages etc is icing on the cake.
La 07 on 6/22/2017
Love This App! It Really Saves Up All Your Photos And Videos And It Also Helps You Save Some Space On Your Phone.

3rd time is indeed the charm (Picassa, Google+) with this awesome, helpful app. This app nicely complements the outstanding Google Photo service. Simple. Efficient. Helpful (cleaning up space)
Best app ever!
Playa_no10 on 6/22/2017
Best of the best! Thank you google photos! You saved me a lotta space
Love google photos
jmb7714 on 6/22/2017
Why spend money on iCloud when you can have google photos for free? Absolutely love it and recommend it to friends and colleagues all the time.
No! What have I done?!
penguins.are.awesome on 6/22/2017
Let's just start out by saying I'm upset, to say the least. The app told me that all my photos were backed up and everything was fine, but when I deleted every photo from my phone and looked back into google photos... everything was gone. So that's how I lost every photo I had.... I don't recommend this app!
Love it
Jonedan19 on 6/22/2017
So convenient and great
Pbro123 on 6/22/2017
Sick of apple trying to sell you more iCloud storage space? Get this app. I got that notice dozens of times and finally got fed up and looked for a solution. Ran into this gem. The assistant immediately and automatically backs up all new pics on your phone since the previous back up when you open the App. You don't even have to push a button to get it to start the backup. Today, I have zero pictures and videos on my phone, but can retrieve any pic I want quickly and conveniently whenever I want from google photos. The icing on top is the collages it automatically puts together, which isn't something I would demand or expect but are actually pretty sweet.
Great app!!!
