Worked great at first then I noticed my TimeMachine backups had stopped. Took me a lot of digging then finally matched dates to changes on Mac and TM last backup. TM still would not work until I brought up a fresh external drive. TM works now on the fresh drive and figure Amazon Photos somehow corrupted old TM external drive for updates. Like Amazon Music, Amazon Photos is removed

The whole service is a joke. Anything you want to store in their cloud must be also in your main HD. I can't even sync my 2nd HD files without keeping a copy in my main HD.

Similar to others - terrible piece of software. You can't resume uploading. I have 20,000+ photos (Amazon Prime member so supposed perk is 'free' unlimited photo storage) and this takes time...It freezes and you have to start over...and freezes...repeat ad nauseum. Can't synchronized folders so if you make changes to more than one or two photos on your Mac you'd have to remember this and manually over ride previously uploaded photos. Given resources that Amazon presumably has at their disposal it's surprising that this kind of rubbish is all that is available. Won't recognize certain file types (wouldn't upload any dng images the first time I tried but haven't tried again to see if repeatable). All around waste of time. Nice of Amazon to offer a free but completely useless service.

This is not the same app as the old "Amazon Cloud Drive.app". This is "Amazon Cloud Drive App.app". The distinction is subtle, but significant. The old app was a menu bar app that allowed automatic synchronization of a folder to your Cloud Drive, as Dropbox does. That app has not been distributed or supported by Amazon for over a year. The current app is little more than an interface to the Cloud Drive web site—with fewer features and capabilities than the web page itself. It is worse than useless. Note that this is not a review of the Cloud Drive service itself; that has its own set of issues. I am addressing just this app here. Even if you are someone who finds Amazon's new Cloud Drive pricing scheme suitable and appropriate (and I am not such a person), there is no value to be had in installing and using this app. If you have the earlier app, I recommend you continue using it until an OS update permanently breaks it (assuming you are satisfied with the service and will continue using it). Otherwise, just use the Amazon Cloud Drive web site—there's nothing you can do with the app that you can't do with the site, and lots you can do with the site that you can't with the app.

I'm excited about the unlimited storage for $60/year, but being forced to use this app to take advantage of it is painful. Like others have noted, it is slow - very, very slow. There doesn't appear to be any simple way to have it monitor the folder(s) of my choice and update them in the background. Nope. I have to initiate updates manually. Shame on me, but I mistakenly thought that by sending all my thousands of photos, videos, documents, etc from my private archives would mean they'd be as easy to access as they were from Dropbox or my iMac, but truthfully, they might as well be on the moon. The only thing I can say about Amazon's rollout of their new, consumer-geared unlimited storage is that it is a potentially incredible thing that is throttled and ruined by it's awful software. I'm looking around and contacting 3rd party software makers to find out if they intend to support uploading and downloading from Amazon new service like they do for Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. So far no answers, but I'm still hopeful.

I have to agree with others. Awful. It may be stable, but essentially it only allows for file upload to the root of your account. You cannot (at least as far as I can find), select a specific folder to which to upload, that can only be done via the web interface in a browser. If an upload fails then it does not appear possible to resume the upload, recover from where it left off or anything approaching convenient. It's basic beyond belief, anything beyond upload gets deferred to a web browser. Without resumable uploads and error recovery, the concept of using this to store all photos, or everything, is completely impractical.

A really poor excuse for an app Amazon. Not much more than a browser launcher. I really preferred the old menu version. As a mac user, this really turns me off to want to use this service.

The 2 GB limit for maximum file size is simply ridiculous! Wake up we are in 2015.

What is very perplexing to me is that Amazon says they do not have a Mac program yet for Amazon Cloud but this says Amazon is the developer. Soon after I installed this I had my Amazon account compromised and someone tried to open up a case on the most expensive item I've ever purchased and then had Amazon send it back out to an address that turned out to be an international freight forwarding company. This program is the only thing I can think of as the source of our account being compromised--has anyone else experienced their amazon account being accessed by a third party after installing this app???
