Ratings and Reviews
Very useful addition to my “cloud storage” systems
This app (and its companions running under iOS) provide a simple but important capability: accessing files on a local computer that aren’t already being shared via another cloud-based solution. I use OneDrive and iCloud . . . but I also have over 5 Tb of images stored on RAID drives attached to my iMac. These are not shared in the cloud and because I use Lightroom (and Lightroom mobile) for image editing, the RAW files and scans are not in Photos. This solution is PERFECT for me because I can now lounge on my couch, iPhone 6 Plus or iPad Air in hand, grab large RAW files on my computer downstairs, and edit to my heart’s content.
Unlike another reviewer, I didn’t find installation difficult at all . . . the directions were clear and once set up, it works flawlessly. No surprises.
The one item I would suggest for the developer is that you provide an error message when the user creates their password and uses a special character. It was only through trial and error that I discovered that you don’t accept special characters (e.g. !,@,#) as part of the password string. Other than that . . . easy, peasy.
I've been looking for an Air Video for files kind of app for ages, and this is very close to that. It's easy to set up, links to my iPad with minimal effort, and I was able to pull files over wifi without having to fiddle with iTunes or cables. There's only one thing I'm hoping for in the future, and that's to be able to set more than one shared folder. I've got things I want to get at stored all over my hard drive, and while one folder serves most of my needs, one or two more would pretty well take care of everything I'd ever need. I don't think the app should only get four stars for that, because it still does exactly what it's supposed to do, and it does it extremely well, so five stars it is. Thanks!
Easier than dropbox
The set-up literally does take just a few seconds - just read the guide on the ipad app before you start. Does just what it says — whatever you put in your shared folder on your mac pops up instantly on the ipad. Fantastic way to sync files.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
