It’s OK but ….

It is a real pain not being able to sort the files by date or have a “recently added” area. Often when I am out and about, it is the file that I was just working on that I want to access and read/send and it is very time consuming going through the list alphabetically. A search function would also be really helpful and the ZipCloud app is a good example of the iPhone interface to an online backup done really well.

Looking good for the iPhone but not the iPad Air

Started using this yesterday and working really week, backing up is straight forward. I downloaded the app onto my iPhone 5S and signed in, up it came and all is fine. I haven’t tried recovering a file yet, but can’t see why it will be a problem. I can’t see the app for the iPad Air, although it says it is compatible?

Great service but the app is a bit lacking

I've been using Backblaze for about six months now and I'm enjoying not having to worry about backup anymore. This app is very simple. This is a good thing in some ways – I'm glad they didn't cram in millions of features. However, three things would convince me to give it 5-stars: iPad support, passcode, and a toggle to hide hidden files.
