It’s gotten a lot easier to swallow the Amazon Prime membership fee of $99 per year now that the online retail giant is throwing in free unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos.
Unveiled Tuesday, Prime Photos taps Amazon’s Cloud Drive service to allow Prime subscribers who are Apple users to upload photos from their mobile devices using Amazon’s free Cloud Drive Photos iOS app and have them stored for free in the Amazon cloud, in their original resolution.
Because the service keeps your snaps saved in full resolution, they aren’t compressed and no quality is lost. The Cloud Drive Photos app has a handy Auto-Save feature to automatically back up your photos.
Needless to say, Prime Photos is also accessible on Android devices, Amazon’s Fire tablet and Fire Phone series and through the web via Mac and Windows computers.
