The storage on my iPhone has been taken up by the vast amount of photos and videos on my device. I’ve been paying for Apple iCloud storage for a few years and didn’t realize that I simply don’t need to. I use to pay £2.49 a month for an extra 200GB of storage. That might not seem like it’s a lot but over a period of 6 years, I’ve paid out £180. I’ve discovered that being an Amazon Prime member, I am entitled to free unlimited photo storage with their app Amazon Photos App.
The Amazon Photo App not only includes unlimited photo storage for its customers but you also get 5GB of video storage. If you’re not an Amazon prime member then you get 5GB free to store photos and videos. You can view and share your photos from nearly any device you are logged into with your Amazon account. The app can automatically save any photos and videos you take on your iPhone. Once the photos are all backed up on the app you can delete them from your iPhone to save space. won’t be getting the annoying “storage almost full” alert on your phone every time you want to take a photo or video. Because the app offers free unlimited photo storage you won’t need to worry about running out of space or being asked to take out a plan.
The app has a nifty search feature whereby you can search for anything within the image and find the specific photo for that search.
- – Auto-save photos for easy backup and to free up memory on your phone.
- – Back up your photos and videos securely with Amazon.
- – Share photos and albums via SMS, email, and other apps.
- – 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.
The app is relatively easy to use. Once you download it you are given the option to sign in with your Amazon credentials. You will then be able to immediately sync the photos and videos on your device, to the app. This does take some time depending on the number of photos you have. So it’s best to do it over Wi-Fi even though using mobile data is fine. It took around 30-45 minutes to sync over 1500 photos. The app does have a number of features. One I particularly like is image recognition. The image recognition feature allows you to easily find and organise your photos. Moving all your photos to the Amazon Photo app doesn’t compromise on quality either. All the photos I transferred still looked amazing. Even the ones that were taken in the dark or low light.
Everyone gets 5GB of storage and prime members get free unlimited photo storage. Not a Prime member? There are plans that you can purchase, such as 100GB for £1.49 or 1TB for £7.99 per month.
Try the Amazon Photos App and get free unlimited photo storage just for being an Amazon Prime member at no extra cost.
