High Performance Photo Map for your Google Photos

I use Google Drive sync because Google Photos doesn't provide the location data in their API.

Play Store:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d..._google_photos

This looks great!

Although, it's not currently working for me. Are there any specific setup steps I need to take?

Hello, normally you should simply follow the instructions. Google photos sync has to be enabled in the Google drive app.
Please contact me via mail using [email protected].
I will support you.
Thanks

For all who are facing problems: the sync process can take some time. If photos are missing, please switch the sync off and on again.

Here is the local storage version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....instagram_map

I can provide support by mail if you want. Thanks. Denny

I just wanted to let you know that I don't use ANY analytics or home servers. Your files are safe and ONLY ON YOUR DEVICE! Only this app has access to your files. ONLY PHOTOS (ONLY your "Google Photos" Folder) are queried to get the following information: id, name, size, mimeType, fileExtension, imageMediaMetadata/location, createdTime, webContentLink, thumbnailLink

Hm - Photo Map shows me only my pictures from before 2015, and if I check Google Drive from a browser, it also only shows these photos. Iirc, 2015 was when Google introduced the cloud sync with reduced "optimized" quality (rather than original quality). Photos synced with "optimized" quality are not counted against the Drive quota, but also seem to not show up in Google Drive at all, and I guess this is why Photo Map also does not see them.

I would suppose (just guessing, of course) that this is also the reason for others not seeing their photos: "optimzed" quality sync?

Cheers

My app is in the Top 10 TRENDING of photography!!

The newest version also supports a mode where the whole drive is used and not only the Google photos folder
You can enable it in the settings.
