Amazon Cloud Drive Photos for Android

The Good Amazon Cloud Drive Photos looks good, has a dead simple interface, and performs reliably.

The Bad It doesn't let you choose a destination folder, or rename photos or albums. Bad at organizing content within your drive. No auto-upload.

The Bottom Line While it may not be good for organizing or sorting items on your drive, Amazon Cloud Drive Photos, is still a fantastic app for storing your photos in the cloud, especially since it comes with 5GB of storage space for free.

Transfer between phone and Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos has hit Google Play, and it's giving Android users yet another simple way to access and store photos in the cloud. The Photos app joins Amazon's existing MP3 app in an apparent effort to get users even more integrated with the company's storage service. In case you're not familiar, Amazon Cloud Drive is similar to Dropbox and Google Drive, and it even gives users a free 5GB of storage space just for signing up.

If there's one thing I can say about the Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app, it's that it's easy to use. Its dead simple interface makes it a snap to view photos, share to other installed apps, and, of course, transfer between your cloud-based account and your mobile device. It performs reliably, and even shows newly uploaded items without refreshing first. If you are already an avid user of Amazon Cloud Drive, then this app is absolutely a must-have. If you're not, then it's certainly worth a look for the free 5GB of storage alone.

Once you download Amazon Cloud Drive Photos and sign in with your Amazon account, all of your albums will be viewable from the app. If you don't have any items stored on your account yet, you can simply toggle to the Device view (button at the top of the screen), and upload any of your locally stored photos to the cloud with a long press. It's worth noting that while you can upload entire albums at once, the app does not let you pick and choose multiple photos to upload in a batch, which is frustrating.
