When you’re at home, you might use the Gmail app to access your email.
But sometimes, when you’re away from home, it might be a good idea to check your Gmail for the most up-to-date photos and other useful info, like contacts and calendar entries.
If you’re not interested in these things, you can get them all through the Gmail photos app.
There’s no real-time syncing, so it’ll take a while to sync photos, but you can always view them in Google Photos or any other online photo service, like Instagram.
You can see some photos and videos in the Google Photos app and they’ll automatically appear in the photo album of your Google account.
The photo-sharing app has its own set of filters that you can use to tweak the way your photos are shown to others, like adjusting the colors or brightness of the image.
If that sounds a little too much like Instagram, you could also view photos in a separate app like Picasa.
The best part about Google Photos is that it’s a free service.
If, like me, you use Gmail to access photos and your email is a little less cluttered, you’ll have no problems downloading the app.
