Not bad, but some things don’t work

Not bad, but some things don’t work. I am unable to delete photos. Nothing seems to happen when I click the trashcan. Menu lines don’t appear to work. But great idea so far.

It’s good!

Best app i’ve found for Google Photos….drag and drop is a breeze….Give it a shot, worth the small cost. Hope the developer continues to refine the app, but overall works well for my needs.

It's transparent

It's fast and works, but the entire user interface appears transparent with anything else running behind it or even so much as the background. Please fix this. Otherwise it's a great app.
