Well I'm on board with Google Photos. I used it in the past when it was buried in Google+, but I didn't like using that network. Now that Google has set it free, I'm back. And I must say it feels next generation, compared to Apple's offering. After using Apple Photos, I have to say, I'm not even sure why they ditched iPhoto. I feels the same, and does the same. Other than the full iCloud integration, all I see is a Facelift. I still have to manually make albums, tag faces, etc., just like in iPhoto. Google however, feels next generation of photo management. It nails faces automatically. Some things I'd like to see added: 1) Adding names to faces. I should be able to search by a name, then Christmas and pull up all Christmas photos with that person in it. Or name 1 + name 2 and pull up all photos that have me and my wife in them for example. 2) Google+ had a Highlights feature would automagically showed you the best photos you have (based on some composition algorithm) and hide the "lesser" photos. I'm sure this is coming. 3) Snapseed editing. I'm not sure why this is missing, but they just have some very basic editing and some filters to start with. I really do like Apple Photos magic editing where you change one slider and the other slides compensate. 4) A way to print photos, make a photo book and slideshows. (edit: slideshows are there, just in a weird place). 5) Flashback feature. Resurface my old photos daily using the Highlights feature. 6) Apple TV support, but I'm sure that's a long shot. Out of the box Google feels more robust out of the box. It's clean and fast, and of course, they understand the cloud much better than Apple has ever done over the last decade. Mulitselect is brillant as photos are files that are in great number and selecting them one by one is a pain in the butt. Why Apple insists and making everything a "tap" when a mobile device is a touched/gesture based platform is beyond me. It's like they don't ever think about how to get more out of a touch based device. I think I'll be letting Google handle all my family & friend photos, instead of my Dropbox+Carousel method. Dropbox is forever slow to bring new features and functionality to the app, but it was the best solution for the time. I still use Flickr solely as an offsite backup and Apple TV screensaver.
