@Peter: Time machine shows same week from last year by design, not all pictures. For obvious reasons, that's a dynamic list. But it has created confusion, and we are looking into a better approach.
Also, we are working improving the facial recognition. Video guides are presently being made as well.
@J.G. Auto upload issue on the iOS is not related to sorting, but instead it is related having photos show up at all in a timely manner. Regardless, sort options are coming.
@J.G.: We will be bringing in new sorting options hopefully next week. Regarding your point 2, we are wondering if this is also related to having to auto-upload toggle, that you mentioned elsewhere. Also, we do have an issue with iOS throttling and energy managing interfering with the upload process, that is difficult to overcome.
@Monument Labs: When browsing the forums I see a lot of users having one (or both) of these issues:
1. Sorting of photos in the Photo overview is not possible. As a user of any software tool, you need to have the possibilty to sort stuff. Either based on upload date, picture taken date, size, name, etc. This is very basic functionality and would (in my opinion) give you guys a lot of credits and time to develop the features that you have in mind (time machine, etc). I would like to ask you to consider this.
2. Newly uploaded photos are not visible in the photo overview (or so it seems): I also have this, I cannot see many of my newly uploaded photos. As stated in a different forum topic, I think it has to do with the facial recognition, because many of the pictures that contain recognised faces are not visible on top of the photo overview, but all the way at the bottom (which is a lot of scrolling when you have many pictures). I think this is not the intended behaviour and want to ask you to consider fixing this (maybe also solve my first point).
@Marco: Android does not have it yet, and the reason why we have been dragging our feet with it is the user response on our particular implementation on the iOS has been less than lukewarm. By design intent, it is supposed to show this week last year, but most users expect to see all pictures on timeline. So, we are trying to figure out a better implementation, which is why we did not copy and paste this problematic implementation to Android. We will either improve and make it more usable and understandable, or transform to something different.
@Ian: Monument sees it, but the time machine shows same week from last year by design, not all pictures.
