Google Photos

Unlimited cloud photo backups that are magically searchable

Google Photos

Search your entire photo library

For those who have lots of photos and no way to organize them.

Google Photos is a Great way to store and manage all of your images and videos. Everything is automatically uploaded from your Camera Roll, and everything is automatically organized and searchable. Along with iOS devices, you can also access everything on the Web. And best of all, you'll receive unlimited storage for free. After uploading everything, the app makes it easy to find what you're looking for. One of the more unique features is the visual search capability that allows you to search the people, places, and things in each photo - no tagging required. Along with managing images, you can also edit your photos.

Why we love it

Google Photos is dead simple to use. You literally just open the app and it does everything. The backups, the organizing, the searching, etc. You do not have to tag anything, Google just knows. It even has a cool "Assistant" feature which creates little recap videos, animated gifs of your photos, and albums of events. Google Photos also groups all the photos of the same person together. So you can click on one image of a person and see all their photos. If you want to go ahead and tell Google that person's name, you can even search by their name. So for example you can search for "John at the beach" or "John and Mary" to see all the photos that have both John and Mary together in them.

Flickr has been around for a long time, but it's still up and kicking. The Flickr app makes it easy to upload your photos to the service as a backup or when you just want to share with the community. All of your photos can be saved on Flickr as high resolution, and you can download copies whenever you need to. The community is also great with groups, and you can leave comments and show that you "like" a photo from someone else too. It's a old and traditional photo storing service, but it's lasted this long for a reason.

Screeny 3.0

Screeny is for those who find tons of screenshots in their Camera Roll and want to get rid of them.

Screeny is a simple app that anyone can use. If your Camera Roll is constantly cluttered up with annoying screenshots that you may have taken before and don't need now, or they were just by accident, Screeny makes it a breeze to get rid of them all. The app will scan your Camera Roll for any screenshots (iOS device or even those from the Apple Watch), and you can manually select the ones you want to get rid of, or just choose All Screenshots or Just Apple Watch Screenshots. Once you have the screenshots you want to remove selected, just tap on the trash can button and they'll be erased automatically. The app tells you how much space you saved. It's fast and convenient, and a great way to remove unnecessary screenshot clutter from your Camera Roll.

Why we love it

We take a lot of screenshots here at AppAdvice, and tend to forget about them later. Screeny makes it super easy for us to go and remove those screenshots without a second thought.
