Smart move. They did the same thing after they bought Picasa. Now it's abandonware. Frown Google sucks.

It's unlikely that will happen. It's a pretty core part of several of the products. They don't have to live forever on Google either you can download them and do as you wish but it's really well built into andorid.

By your logic that Samsung storage device and web servers your using. I also wouldn't trust my photos to a device that has only one hard drive in it that's several years old. Seems like a good point of failure.

Thanks,that's a good point.Relying completely on that may not be good as well

I have been using on my S3 & for the last two years NEXUS6P, this app called "Sweet Home!" that can be setup to transfer automatically to a share (assuming your Sammy can present itself as share). IIRC, there's a free version to make sure it works and then you can go to the donate version. Her's the link in PlayStore: https://play.google.com/store/app...home&hl=en
