A -5 Stars
Unfortunately there is no way to show -5 stars so I had to give it just 1. It is completely useless unless all you want to do is backup to their cloud. I installed it on my desktop and downloaded the app for my iPhone. I can't view any picture or file on my phone that was backed up from my desktop to the cloud. I can only view them on the desktop. If I upload a picture that I took on my phone to the cloud, it looks REALLY BAD!!! It is very blurry.
Their description of the app specifically states you can view and share any file or picture from desktop and any mobile device. NOT TRUE! If all you want is to backup files and pictures then it does that. To upload, view, share and good quality pictures or files you are better off using Dropbox or iCloud.
Very Flawed App & Awful Technical Support
I first reported issues with this App on March 31, 2015. Cox Cloud Drive support admitted that the recent revision to fix an existing problem had produced unintended consequences, the issue I reported of blurry images when these uploads were viewed on an iOS device. Over a month later, that ticket is still open, along with 2 other Cloud Drive tickets. I have had multiple contacts with Cloud Drive Support, Level 1. I set up a time for Level 2 Support to call back but they missed a promised call. I have escalated my complaints to Cox Corporate offices and will persist until all issues are resolved. Please continue to report your own experiences here in reviews. This may help to get these issues resolved.
Cox took away our personal webspace for THIS!?
Cox used to be halfway decent. For a reasonable amount of money you could get a broadband connection and up to five personal websites for your usernames.
Now, they keep on nickel and diming your service price up and up and up, while they reduce the amount of things you used to be able to do.
This online cloud storage fiasco is supposed to replace our personal websites. Well that's bogus! If you think this app is bad, try using their user interface on the website. This cloud storage they give us is absolutely worthless, it is difficult to upload things to it, and it is way too difficult to access it.
