Not User Friendly
I want to be clear. The WD My Cloud drive is a good or even great device. My primary complaint is that the software is not user friendly. I use computers often and have for a long time ( 30 years ). I have found the software to be complicated. This is likely at least in part my fault because I expect it should work more like the Finder in Mac or Explorer on a PC. I know I'll get used to it because I have the time to explore. Someone who is less computer literate and does not have the time available to them might be frustrated. This software is capable but really could be better. The WD drive is their usual quality product and this software could easily be a 5 with a few minor changes. Please make the software compatible for RAW files and add thumbnail view with file size.
Well designed app
This app is pretty impressive. It is the best one I've used for personal cloud storage. It's easy to set up and manage and hasn't had any bugs so far after 1 month of use.
Only one gripe so far and that is that when viewing photos, if you select one to view full screen, when you go back to thumbnail view it will take you to the top of the list. That can be super annoying if your list is long. Not a huge deal though.
It would be great if 3rd party apps had MyCloud integration like they do for Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. That's not in WD's control though and they have provided an open source SDK so hopefully 3rd party developers use it! Great app though.
Great great great app & hard drive
I've been using this app for the hard drive for a few months & it's been great! I have had very few problems with the app whether it is on my iPad or iPhone. The laptop is where I have the most trouble, but I'm not even sure if it's the software or the internet connection.
The only thing I would like to see is a recent bar instead of having to go all the way back into folders. I stream movie files I have saved on the hard drive and I have to go back into each folder to the subfolder. It's nothing major but just what i have liked on other apps.
Otherwise, it's a great set-up! Keep up the great work! ❤️😀
