    So I prefer the Gallery app to the Photos app, and I just upgraded my phone. So my pictures backed up to the Photos app, is there any way to move them to the Gallery app?

    I have never tried this....but you could probably try coping the photos from the Photo app, which I think it cloud based, to your phone memory or sd card...after that they should show up in the gallery.

    I am not sure exactly.....I am seeing on my Note 4 you can select a picture, press the three dots in the top right corner and then select download. This should download the picture to your phone. There should be a way to view those pictures in your gallery app as well. Which phone do you have?

    Do you have a file manager app? If so then just go into the photos app folder select the pics you want and move them to you DCIM folder.

    I just looked, there's no photos folder. I never used the app. So nothing shows in your gallery?

    Absolutely nothing. Plus while were here, my contacts were taken from my google account, but they were very incomplete. I see all of my contacts on the verizon cloud app on my phone, how do I move those to my "people" app (contacts)?

    For contacts you should be able to sync to phone then sync to Google

    And when I open my gallery app, all it shows is a button to open the camera. On my old phone it was in certain albums I believe.
