Ok, sorry, I missed the part about (from our website).

That has the ability to do a multi-select...   very good.

That solves it. The app does not have that functionality yet.

So i need to go to wireless, then to my Devices, then to My Cloud and Media contacts, then PHOTOS or videos, and then i see what you are talking about.   Good stuff. Learned something new here.  You have to do it on your site..not on your phone. Phone app isnt there yet or i cant find a way on the device.  Thanks!

We want to get that space freed up right away, gmopro1. If you access Verizon Cloud from our website, you can first select Photo to bring up the backed up content. Once everything has loaded, in the upper right corner under the storage meter of the cloud you will see a box with a check mark. Selecting this icon allows you to select multiple items to be deleted. http://spr.ly/6584Bcofk

Ok, this is on my cell phone that I am doing this.  Android phone with the verizon cloud app.

So I went to the Cloud. I then clicked on the 3 lines on upper left and went to photos.

Then i hit the 3 dots and there is a Select Content choice. I hit that. Then i can select multiple photos to delete, but i cant do like  a shift and select thing where i can select one and then another 25 photos away and delete all. Is there a fast way to delete several photos instead of selecting each one by one?

i dont see the thing you are talking about wih the storage meter. Under the storage bar, i only see an Add space choice. Anyway, i dont think u can do the shift select thing and do a string of photos.

I also have to remove photos on the device itself for the next load to cloud so that works.  This is pretty involved and will take a while.

For over 2,000 photos and videos, we need a fast way to delete.  need a delete all and then a way to select a range quickly.  How do we get that information to the developer. It is pretty important to have that functionality.
