PlayMemories Online

PlayMemories is another free app on the PlayStation store. It uses the images and videos on your Cloud to organize them on your PS4. This also makes viewing screenshots and video clips that are already saved to your PlayStation that much easier! While you can not upload media files directly to this app, it will make it a lot easier to show off home-videos of last Christmas during the next family gathering!

Not just that, but it has this adorable feature of displaying a new photo from your drive at the top of the app daily. This way your photos are never forgotten and you are able to see pictures of your kids from when they were babies and relive that glorious moment.
