This app is a necessity if you want to sort through thousands of photos on an iPhone. DS photo is horrible when you’re trying to find a phone from years ago and you don’t know exactly when it was taken. But the ability to look through lots of photos easily is one of the only good things about it. You still need DS Photo to actually organize your photos into folders.

What Moments Needs:
PASSWORD PROTECTION - This is an absolute must and it’s the only Synology app that doesn’t have it. This needs to be added immediately to protect the photos.

Ability to separate photos by albums. Having all photos lumped together is great until you have multiple family members saving photos which leads to lots of viewing redundancy.

Facial recognition needs a lot of work. It doesn’t recognize people from different photo sets.

Ability to change the “badge photo” for people. It chooses the absolute worse photos and there’s no rhyme or reason. I don’t want an infant photo to display for a child that’s now ten years old.

You need to run both DS Photo and Moments for full function on an iPhone. If it wasn’t for the fact that I can easily search through photos I wouldn’t use Moments at all. It makes a mess of things in general.

Missing one key feature

I’m generally pleased with the app and the integration with my NAS, but it fails to auto-backup the camera roll unless you open the app. This makes me have to think about my backup. Would love to see this just happen like so many other photo backup apps do. I often go weeks before I remember that I’ve taken photos and that I haven’t opened this app.

Otherwise it’s been great for viewing and getting media off my phone and iPad.

Don’t understand the hate...

PhotoStation has been long in the tooth for a while now. Moments is a clear path forward for those who refuse to pay Apple or give up everything to Google. Compared to Apple it supports more platforms giving you future mobility. Unlike Google the files are in your house not some magically “free” cloud. You can literally pull the plug and destroy the drives if you feel the urge - but therein lies the rub. You need to treat your Disk Station like the holy grail it is. I may go a little overboard but in addition to parity RAID you’ll want an additional physical backup and an encrypted cloud one too. Throw your DS, router, and modem on battery backups and you’ll be good to go!
