Seems to work fine for me


It saved my userid and password for use with TouchID. Allowed me to download a spreadsheet, an .mp3, and a 5MB .pdf file. No issues. Allows sending to other iOS apps. Backblaze is not a Cloud Sync’ing service like Dropbox. It’s a backup protection service. This extra feature that they provide access too all my files while on-the-go is really appreciated. They don’t stream large files like movies, but, that seems like a lot to ask of a backup provider. Use your own Plex server if that’s what you want. I was forced out of CrashPlan like a lot of fellow users, and honestly, I did like CrashPlan a little better. But, I also know they didn’t feel like what I paid them was worth it for the service they thought they provided so they exited the business. Not much I can do about that. Backblaze is adequate and at a reasonable price. And this app, while not feature rich, works fine for accessing my files on the go and in an emergency.

Does its job, but...


Is there any chance there could be a way to save your login info so you don't have to re-login every time the window closes? #1, it's annoying, #2, half the time my finger recognition doesn't work and I'm there typing it all in. If I want to get to a filed, I'd like to open up the app and find it quickly. Also, is there a way to be able to simply view or listen to the file (for a document or song for example) without needing to download the file similar to other back up programs? Like on Dropbox or google drive, you can click the file and view it within the app rather than needing to download the whole file.

Can only download files up to 30MB


I was also one of those unlucky few that flocked to this service because crash plan decided to abandon us non business customers.

I've been a member now for a couple of months. Seemed not so bad until I wanted to download a file on my phone that was 1GB. The app wouldn't let me do this on my iPhone, crash plan would let me do this all the time wherever I was. So keep in mind that this is an inferior service with an inferior iPhone app right off the bat. I'm still looking for another company for regular consumers that is as good as crash plan.
