Google Photos is an app where you can back up and browse your entire photo library from almost any device. Many people have drawn similarities between Google's Photos app and Apple's Photos app, which was introduced in iOS 7 and subsequently arrived on the Mac, so we're going to compare the two and see exactly how similar they are, and which is the best for you. Google Photos is a free download for iOS so you can run it on your iPhone or iPad - it's not just for Android users. For some related comparisons between Apple and Google products, take a look at Apple Maps vs Google Maps and Apple Music vs Google Play. Organisation and search The way that both the Apple Photos and Google Photos apps organise your photos is very similar. Apple organises your photo library using smart groups based on time and location called 'Moments', 'Collections' and 'Years'. Moments are groups of photos all taken over the course of a day (occasionally you'll see a day split into two Moments). … [Read more...] about Clash of the tech titans: Apple Photos vs Google Photos

Zahrawy (Posts: 10; Member since: 22 Aug 2012) Actually, there is already 128GB xtreme capacity MSD. So, 128 + 64 = a whooping 192GB. 39. sheik (Posts: 249; Member since: 12 Sep 2012) The galaxy note II can accept memory cards with capacity up to 64 GB only. posted on 16 Oct 2012, 03:22 6 20.

People expressed their wish on how much storage would they want (hypothetically), while the really interesting poll was to see the percentages of paid vs free users. So two simple questions like "I don't pay, I am fine with whatever they offer for free" and "Yes, I pay for … [Read more...] about Comments for : Results: do you pay for extra cloud storage?

posted on 03 Aug 2017, 09:22 2 1. LilJokr (unregistered) For me, 64GB would do just fine. I use cloud storage for the most part anyway. posted on 03 Aug 2017, 10:34 1 6. sgodsell (Posts: 5799; Member since: 16 Mar 2013) Well realistically some apps and games have become ridiculously hugh. I notice VR/AR apps on average are around 100 MB, and a few are around the gigabyte range. It doesn't take a lot of those apps to fill up your storage. Plus movies are around the gigabyte range. But that is only if you store them for offline viewing. posted on 03 Aug 2017, 15:03 2 12. k4ever (Posts: 238; Member since: 08 Oct 2014) It's weird that people don't learn anything from history. I remember having this exact same conversation 10-20 years ago about storage on personal computers. 20MB was the sweet spot, then 100MB, then 1GB, and now it is 500GB/1TB. It's not the user that decides how much storage a device will need, it's the app developers.

posted on 22 Nov 2016, 04:21 0 1. AlikMalix (unregistered) Happy with 64gb. I honestly think that if I had more storage - I'd be extremely disorganized - this forces me to offload all the photos and videos periodically, and clean up the storage - and I like that. posted on 22 Nov 2016, 04:28 6 2.

Google Photos, an amped up cloud-based photo storage service, organizer and editor, was one of the big unveils at the Mountain View, Calif. company's I/O developer conference last week.Reviewers raved about it. Bloggers bragged it up. Analysts applauded it."Google Photos looks amazing," wrote independent analyst Ben Thompson, on his subscription-based Stratechery.com last week. "And, I might add, it has a killer tagline: Gmail for Photos. It's so easy to be clear when you're doing exactly what you were meant to do, and what you are the best in the world at."The mainstream media gave Google Photos enough coverage to turn faces an off-shade-envy green in Cupertino (Apple), Menlo Park (Facebook) and Redmond (Microsoft). Maybe Cupertino most of all: Apple likes to think it owns photos. Heck, one of its current ad campaigns relies on striking photographs taken with its iPhone 6 smartphone's camera.But envy -- of the unlimited storage space Google tossed into the Photos pot, of the … [Read more...] about Google Photos: How big a threat to Apple?
After two massive password breaches, the precise future of Yahoo is uncertain from a couple of different angles. Reports indicate that its buyer, Verizon, may have second thoughts or be trying to renegotiate the multi-billion-dollar purchase price. But even if all goes ahead as planned—at whatever final price—Yahoo’s current set of businesses are unlikely to survive as they stand.The most vulnerable and best loved, besides Tumblr, is the long-running Flickr photo-hosting and sharing service. Once a glimmer of a social network before such a term had been coined, many users have left for Google Photos, Apple’s Photos apps combined with iCloud, Amazon Cloud Drive, and others. Flickr didn’t keep up with other photo services and never quite got the full-on social religion, even though it received a refresh a few years ago which came with 1TB of free storage per user.Given that Flickr could morph into something else or shut down, if you have photos that remain … [Read more...] about How to download your Flickr photo library and transfer it to Google Photos or iCloud Photo library
Last week at the Google I/O developer conference, Google announced a raft of forthcoming additions to its Google Photos service. Since Google Photos runs on iOS and in any web browser, it’s a serious photo-storage option for Mac, iPhone, and iPad users—and in many ways, it’s way ahead of Apple’s Photos apps and iCloud Photo Library service.Then again, WWDC—Apple’s own developer conference—is in just two weeks. It’s an opportunity for Apple to declare where it’s taking Photos and iCloud Photo Library next. In the meantime, though, it’s worth pointing out where Google Photos is beating Apple’s offerings, and where Apple’s ahead—and how WWDC could be poised to change both sides of the equation.I’ve spent an awful lot of time with Photos and iCloud Photo Library. You could say that I wrote the book on it, because I have. Spending that much time up close with any product makes you appreciate its features and … [Read more...] about How iCloud Photo Library matches up to Google Photos
Google Photos is trying to streamline group photo albums by allowing anyone with a link to contribute their own pictures.With the latest Google Photos update for iOS, Android, and the web, users can create a shared album from any cluster of photos. This generates a link, which can be copied, pasted, or shared to other apps and social networks. Once someone else has that link, they can upload pictures and add the collection to their own Google Photos library.Compared to other image sharing platforms, Google’s is decidedly bare-bones. There’s no way to comment or “like” an image, as you can with Facebook or iCloud Photo Sharing, and there are no options for face tagging beyond the automatic (and private) image recognition that Google Photos performs automatically.But maybe that’s the point. Compared to the Google+ version of photo storage that preceded it, Google Photos is not so much a social network as it is a private repository. If people are adding … [Read more...] about Google Photos keeps it simple with shared albums
