An OK alternative to Google Photos

I understand that nobody can beat Google’s AI but the UX of the app is not that great either.
As a backup service it’s plenty, but no dark mode, no backup only while charging, adding tags and manually tagging faces is cumbersome within the app. I would also like an option to delete the photo from local storage if deleted within the synology app! Very cumbersome to remember delete a photo in two places… make it work like Google photos!
I bought a NAS for photo and video backup! I would love to recommend more folks to get a synology, but it’s difficult when even a tech savvy person like me finds it hard to use.

Great, but needs “moments”

I LOVE that this app auto backs up my photos instantly, but one major feature it’s missing is something similar to iOS moments. I really like seeing the moments the iOS photos app creates with the photo collages with music. My phone is almost out of space from all the photos and videos but I’m hesitant to hit the free up space in this app because it’s gonna wipe everything off my phone and I’ll no longer get the occasional moments from iOS photos. Or even integrate this app with iOS photos so it can read the pics off the nas and do all the leg work just have the nas as the source folder. Another nice feature would be if we could choose to only delete photos from our phone that’s older than 6 months or a year.

The auto backup did save me a few months ago when I lost my phone. It has ALL my pics with my kids and I hadn’t looked in a long time to see if the auto backup had been doing it’s job, so I panicked and jumped on my computer right away and lo and behold, all my photos were there on the nas like they were supposed to be. That changed my situation from losing priceless photos to only being out a few hundred bucks for my phone.

Love this App. But it needs more love

The “Enable Sleep time Back up” doesn’t really work. Put it on for 45 min & it only uploaded 2 pix. I like one stop shop apps, so I hope Synology fixes/upgrades all this sooner than later…
..Google Photos I admit loads way faster, but you catch more faces (which I prefer) but both still makes you try to figure out (like more than half results) who the faces are/belong too& names. The Synology People facial recognition album takes longer than I expected.. just takes ages. But once it works I can see it’s freakin awesome. I’ve tried multiple apps & I still want to use this synology app. It’s just the things I mentioned just keep me waiting for them day they fix & upgrade these things.
