Monument stores and automatically organizes your photos by time, location, faces and what's in them.
The Monument app on iOS automatically transfers photos from your phone to Monument.
By default, syncing starts upon connecting to your home Wi-Fi network. This achieves a faster transfer rate and relieves stress on your smartphone battery.
The SD Card slot on Monument accepts standard SD Cards. When a new SD Card is inserted for the first time, a notification is displayed in the app asking you whether the content should be imported. Upon approval, all the content is stored in Monument.

Ratings and Reviews
App Crashes when trying to use the map feature
Have the app for about two months. Love the app, it worked great until about a week ago. It crashes whenever I try to use the map feature. Would have given it 5 starts otherwise. (Version 2.12.0)
Easy access to thousands of photos
I love how I don’t have to wait for the photos to load! Easy to upload photos from iPhone. The best part is that it’s the only app I know of that CAN HANDLE LIVE PHOTOS! 💃 I’ve been using this since March 2019 and the app doesn’t crash anymore. Tagging and facial recognition is so handy. Also, being able to zoom out by month makes it faster to find photos.
Supports RAW is a big plus. Being able to download the photos easy (original or compressed) is a big plus too.
Uploading the old photos is the harder part (but it’s like that in other photo storage system anyway IMO). Easiest way for me to upload was to patiently do it by batch using a memory card. You can also do it from a hard drive but it won’t copy or reorganize the photos in a separate folder.
Don’t expect lightning speed when moving thousands of photos because that takes time even from external hard drive to external hard drive.
Yes, it’s a start up and it’s still not perfect (but even Photos app from Apple isn’t perfect). They’ve been continuously improving their apps/ software and they listen to their customers 🌟
My wife and I have been using the monument for more than a year and it keeps getting better and better! Our entire photo collection is available everywhere we go, and now live photos work as well. We got my parents one of these for Christmas this year because my mom is always getting after my dad to get his phones photos uploaded and in a place that she can see them. We set it up at Thanksgiving and now she has access to their entire photo collection, it's up to date, and it's really user friendly!

Hi there! That is really great to hear. I'm glad that you and your wife are both able to take your own photos and back them up while on vacation. You can also share content between users - here's how: https://help.getmonument.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001547613-Sharing-Between-Users
