    Is anyone using Google+ for photo backup with iPhone? The pain is on my iPhone (and my wife's) I have to remember to go into Google+ and manually push them to Google+. It won't automatically upload them, even though I have it set up properly. Is everyone else's experience the same with G+, or am I doing something wrong?

    I just email Google on it. Curious to hear what they have to say.

    I'm thinking I may need to use something else for backup. It worked perfectly on Android as you'd expect. Also a shame because I have unlimited Google Drive storage through my job. I used to use Dropbox but I used up my space and don't really want to pay 10 bucks a month for the 1TB plan.

    Yes, my google + was auto backing up pictures before and after the update to the iPhone 6 plus version was even released, still working fine.

    kind regards

    Yes, actually. Works wonderfully. We use it to keep all of our photos shared between three family members (mom, my wife, and me). You can set it to use wifi only or wifi/cellular. I have ours set to wifi. I can;t say when exactly it does the uploads. It isn't the moment you hop on wifi. But it does happen without me having to mess with the app.

    The only drawback is videos... they can only be 90 seconds long and those will not auto-upload. Considering the vast amount of storage, it is something I am ok dealing with.

    I don't trust Google for my personal photos.
    I'm using iCloud ...
