      Flickr vs Google Photos opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Flickr is still a legitimate alternative to Google Photos, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Flickr isn't a photo-storage app but more a social network for photographers.

      Main selling point of Google Photos is its cloud sync and storage, which Simply Gallery does not feature.

      Piwigo vs Google Photos opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Piwigo is a great alternative to Google Photos.
      Piwigo has come a long way since I first tried it. It’s great alternative method of storing photos in a cloud. It it is open source and can be self hosted. However, if you are not capable of managing your own LAMP stack, it appears you can get a hosted service at piwigo.com

      skvintett Today Google Photos replaced the stock gallery on Android phones. If you need a more classic replacement for the Android Stock Gallery, F-Stop is good enough and has nice organization features.
