Comments and Reviews from users:

Dawn Cole: “Update: I cleared the cache and maybe even uninstalled and reinstalled and it worked for like a day, and it's back to the old behavior. When I download something, I have the icon to add to drive. I choose a folder and then have a persistent notification that it's uploading for days, and can't cancel it. It never ends up loading. Nothing I do gets PDFs to print to drive. I have turned off the requirement for WiFi and still have documents from months ago trying to upload” – 2/5 in Play Store

William Denham: “It is way better on desktop. It works on mobile, but it takes longer to upload, open, and share documents, which kind of makes sense. Also, in order to create a doc, slideshow, drawling, etc., you need to have that app downloaded, while on desktop, you can do it right in the browser. Why must you download an app for everything when drives organization is clearly superior? There has to be a way for the developers to embed the other apps into drive, or make it open the webpage like a desktop would” – 4/5 in Play Store

Craig Hopkins: “Google photos is my favorite app. Rather than play on social media I go to Google photos and and manipulate share and take pictures that I can download later. It comes complete with a complete editing functions. They make my pictures look good although touching them up sometimes feels a little like cheating. It helped me get some decent pictures of old pictures that were in a photo album from the 70s and was able to reprint them on canvas. Boy was I impressed” – 5/5 in Play Store

Crystal Grubb: “Need more free space. But for real though, I am so happy for the invention of Google Photos' app because without it, I would not have access to the many memories I do. And I wouldn't take a thing for my pics and videos. And thank you for the added benefits like your collections and creations. And you guys do offer plenty of free spaces and access to cheap extra space, if needed. For people like myself. Lol!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Cons Limited cloud integration, may not be suitable for advanced users.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Samuel Santaella: “Finding and managing files is inefficient, but recent updates have begun to address this. The tabs within each "Categories" view are now sorted alphabetically; finding the folder you want is now better! But, when you move files, it always takes you to the start of the hierarchy. It should keep you in the current folder so that you can more easily move what you want to a closer related folder. The entire hierarchy is already available up top when moving, so people can always use that and tap.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Brooke Upchurch: “The Google Files app is okay, but it doesn't offer much beyond its core functions of cleaning up storage and giving access to trashed files. I find the app's overall performance to be lackluster, and I find the interface is straightforward, but not very exciting. The suggested files/apps to delete feature is helpful, but I sometimes question its accuracy. I only install this app when I need to free up space on my device, and then I uninstall it right after.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Joshua Bartleson: “Works great, no major issues. On a galaxy tablet, there's no back button to go to the previous screen. You actually have to go back to the beginning of the file chain and start over to get to the file you want if you screw up. The constant syncing is problematic if you're renaming multiple files. You may be changing part of a file name but the sync will wipe out the entire name. You can pause it, but an option to specifically define a sync interval between 1 and ten minutes would be awesome!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Javone (Von): “I enjoy the features it brings but irritates me with one problem. It syncs photos that's that we're not chosen and automatically syncs photos of new albums I make without asking. I'm not fine with that. When you select folders and it still backs up everything is an issue to me. I have everything in separate folders, I don't feel I should have to re-separate everything all over to put them as I have them already.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Edward Zimmer: “This app is wonderful, I don't really have much to say about it besides that it's great with friends and not everything is as incognito as regular messaging. The only thing I'm "ehh" about is that when you post a video longer than I believe 20 seconds, it sends into a seperate video. For example, if you send a video that is 2 minutes long. it will be sent as 6 seperate videos. Overall. it's a great app, good job devs!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Stan O'Connor: “Today is March 4. Since March 1, Dropbox on my Samsung phone has been very difficult to use. On March 1, I opened it and the files appeared different. Pathways have changed. Photos appear and disappear from their frames. When I gather some photos for transfer to another folder, get asked TO WHICH FOLDER?, choose the 'transfer to' folder... and then Dropbox disappears! I reopen it and have to start over, again and again. Do I need to change something? Dropbox worked great until 2/29.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Kent Ernst: “Latest update has changed the appearance of the file folders and added features. Might be good but the problem is the picture thumbnails now disappear, reappear and disappear randomly. If I'm selecting pictures to download, the first picture that I select makes all the thumbnails disappear. Still no file duplicate software and moving more than 50 pictures from one folder to another often fails or causes the application to freeze up. About ready to give up paying for Dropbox.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jayce: “It's a really great gallery app, and i enjoy using it. My biggest problem is i try to make a new folder/album — but it glitches and won't let me. By that I mean the new folder page pops up for less than a second then disappears. As an artist, it would be really nice to be able to sort my characters and reference sheets! Please fix this 😩” – 4/5 in Play Store

D P: “Just short of being good. Folder support is a need, but it does not allow nested folder views. My pics sync with my pc, and they are in logical order, like folder "Family" has subs for specific members, trips, events, etc. With this app, all of hundreds of folders are displayed on one screen. Instead of 3 or 4 clicks to what I need, well, it's just not helpful. Seems so simple. That's the killer, but the other missing feature is to take a camera pic right in to the active folder.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Clotea Snugy: “A very useful app for storing my files. I just wish that maybe you guys can return the video uploading function back to the phone and still instill the duration limit. I also have an issue with signing in recently. I can't seem to click on my Google account and it seems to not respond when I click on it. I also have privacy concerns. Otherwise, good app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

SOURAV PAUL: “Too much ad. Too much. As u have replied I think I wouldn't express the issue properly. I mean by too much ad is that there is bug most of the time ad is not completed and the download screen show up while the ad is running on the background. In the download screen can't do any download cause ad is not completed. So have to go back all the way to start. And this happens 5-6 times for a video. We can watch one ad for downloading one video. It shouldn't be 5-6 videos. It's irritating.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Unfortunately, it does not include video storage, which isn't a huge deal since I move all my videos to an external hard drive anyway. But, the constant push notification on the app about my videos not being able to be backed up is really annoying. I swipe it away and then it reappears again quickly. Ugh.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Works well auto uploading photos from phone. Love that I can store uncompressed, even raw, pics. Downgraded to 3 stars due to lack of some basic features. When adding pics to folders you can't arrange folders alphabetically so you have to look until you find it. Pics won't auto rotate when you rotate your device. Basic info isn't readily available (location, what folder it is in, etc). No option to delete pics from your device when deleted from this app. Just not well thought out.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Not a replacement for a printer/scanner, but if you can place a photo in bright light (don't use flash!), without too large an area of glare, you can make a pretty nice, quick scan of a photo anywhere you happen to be. Nice for dropping in on relatives and looking through the family album. Might take one or two tries to eliminate glare and haze.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Great app when it comes.to.recaliming.old photos. I am currently using it to gather parents' albums so we can have them of anything was to happen to them. Also tested against a variety high gloss pictures with my Note9 Of course, it is not perfect; in which there would be slight smudging around hair and blending colors. I felt the app is user friendly with quick cropping (framing) tool. If you would like to truly edit the photo, I used Google Photos and Samsung photo editor to spruce it up.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Edward: “Edit #2: Fixed review layout and typos. Edit: Dropped to 2 stars because app cannot view all videos so it only adds a small portion of what is selected. For now will only use for pictures. Review: Works well and quickly. I like being able to set a picture to each vault as the one to view. The reason for 3 stars is the default Main Album cannot be deleted or renamed. Once we are able to do one of those things, I will change my rating.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Sav Ash: “It's a good app, but a basic feature like more albums shouldn't be locked behind a pay wall. If they're going to be locked behind a paywall, at least make it a reasonable one time purchase. You used to be able to pay $40 to upgrade your account, and before that, it used to be $5. Now it's $36 PER YEAR for a basic feature. No one-time upgrade option severely holds this app back, especially when other competitors offer unlimited albums for free.” – 2/5 in Play Store

There is a couple of things that would be such a great upgrade to make it even better. The news feed type of button would be awesome to make it more user friendly. More social media type of userface would be really nice and easier to navigate through the app. Also if I could put captions with the group/single photo when I post them that would be very helpful” – 3/5 in Play Store

Amanda Delgado: “Kind of love this app.. but it needs some improvement. We love being able to share pics with our family and friends in a specific app that they have to be invited to! Love that they're able to comment on the pics. My biggest issue is with the recap books - I love the idea of getting a monthly recap book! But there is no way to edit or even just crop the pictures as you're creating the book. Therefor you have to edit your pics before uploading to the app.. and who has time for that with a baby” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Update: After using the app for awhile now, it's starting to grow on me. The file sharing is a nice touch that comes in handy when you need to share multiple or large files. I was informed by app support that music files will not sync between files, which is a bit of a bummer. My first attempt to get my music library uploaded was very frustrating. I tried it again the next day and all my music uploaded without issue (Spectrum Router - their firewall caused the issue, which I disabled) The included music player within the app is a very nice touch. Currently, I'm trying to find out more information about the synced folders in this app in regard to my phone and PC, in that what happens to a file deleted on one device and what happens to the file on the other device, or if syncing between devices will result in files being added/deleted to the other device.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I'm going to uninstall the app. Copied some mp3 files from Google Drive to folders on pCloud. The operation copied most files, duplicated one and didn't copy one other. Tried the operation on a different folder, same result. I don't know if this is a new bug or just a compatibility issue with my device - but until worked out, the service and app are practically useless for my purposes.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Griffen Sander: “Overall, it's a nice app and does everything you need it to while being fast and stable. There are quite a few areas that could use improvement though: The camera portion should definitely have manual controls and the option to shoot in a raw format. The editor should be improved. Something like lightroom mobile would be awesome. It's design hasn't changed in several years and IMO could use a visual refresh. Dark mode would go a long way. Needs the ability to order prints from within the app.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Richard Chaplin: “This app is frustrating and it is gradually getting worse. Uploading photos on my tablet using this app has always been hit or miss, but in the last couple months it's basically not uploading at all. When I try and upload the app just grinds to a halt. The little "upload in progress" arrows will sometimes spin, sometimes not - but the photo rarely uploads in either case. I thought it was maybe my internet connection but judging by other reviews it seems like it is a common issue.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “A very simple gallery app but nonetheless feature rich and completely customizable. Respects your device by not loading it with annoying ads or asking for unnecessary and/or sketchy permissions. Now with a Pro version to help generate some revenue for the developer which is well worth the ultimate purchase price. Whether you go with the Pro version (supported) or the Free version (not really supported) you can't go wrong here...” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “App works great, NO ADS! Does everything I want and need. Only problem I have discovered is when I used a thumb drive hooked into the usb port, using the phone's file app (LG G8 ThinQ), it listed both sets of files. However when I ejected the thumb drive no matter what I did it still listed both sets of files just the thumb drive albums were blank.The only way to get them to go away was to uninstall and reinstall the app.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Features Icedrive is a secure cloud storage service that offers end-to-end encryption for your files and cross-platform syncing.
Pros Easy to use, secure, and affordable.
Cons Storage limits may be too low for some users, and there is no option for two-factor authentication.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “One of things bad i have to say about it is that you can only download 30 (really 29, for some reason) items back from the cloud, which is kind of confusing, since i can upload more than that amount. Another thing is that even if i set the download location to SD card (if present, which there is.) it will still download to the system memory, It's a good app, either way. Edited due to another problem surfacing.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “This is by far my favorite cloud storage company. The mobile app and desktop software are easy to use and extremely modern. The ability to mount Icedrive makes the software very useful. The only problem is with a free account you get 1tb of bandwidth a month but with a 1.99 150gb account you only get 250 gb of bandwidth. That is probably the only reason I haven't upgraded my account. Also the dark theme needs to be revamped. Overall and amazing app!” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Amazing app. Started out by simply testing it one afternoon. After I got it set up on all our devices, I never felt the need to go back to lightroom! Just figured out how to get it to sync over the net to our vault at home and WOW. I now can categorise photos whenever and wherever I get a spare moment. Even the wife uses it it to show off photos to her friends. A word of advice to the Mylio team, please do not change it too much from here. Try to ignore the bad comments.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Nathan Filz: “Mylio is AMAZING, the Android version, needs love. I can't recommend the Mylio service highly enough. Finally there is a company taking the issue of cross-platform photo collection and management. These guys are onto something big and have an amazing product. Works great on Windows, Mac and iOS, but the Android app needs some serious work. As other reviewers mentioned, the display size looks microscopic on lower resolution devices, rendering it almost useless. But it will get better !!” – 3/5 in Play Store
