What's New in Version 4.2.0
Enhancements and compatibility updates
Nothing exciting but helpful
I back up my media storage drive with crash plan and it would be great if I could view my photos and videos on my mobile (or desktop) device without having to download each fine individually. Sort of like a cloud media viewer (even including thumbnails of the photos next to the file name would be helpful) but really, flicking through my old photos that, currently, I can only access at home when I plug in my media drive, would be a huge perk to the app and make it more useful.
Love the crashplan service. The website is fresh and updated but ALL their software is outdated looking and slightly archaic. Not sure if there's much more functionality the app needs but it's nothing to write home about. Let's you access your stuff (biggest perk) but can't seem to see what else it lets you do as far as manage your backup system. Maybe some more specs, graphs, or a history log of what's been backed up and when?
Complexity Hidden Inside Simplicity
I was very surprised that this "no frills" App was able to provide the level of functionality it does. Too often we see apps that are artfully done but offer looks without utility. After uploading my entire computer filing system into Crashplan's database using my MacBook, I discovered that this App gave me mobile access to every (and I do mean every) single file I have ever created or owned.
The app organizes the files exactly as they are in my computer. Additionally, I can download files directly onto my mobile device and can open them as long as they not not a proprietary file type with no apps to open them.
Personally, I really appreciate how easy it is to use this app and feel that its greatest strength is its minimalistic and direct approach.
If you have CrashPlan, you should have this app. That being said, if you are deciding to use CrashPlan and are weighing your decision based only on this app, please realize that you are only seeing a fraction of the whole picture. The real service exists via your computer and that service is awesome!
Lacking in security options
This does the job ok. However, I think it is lacking in security options. It would be safer and more convenient to have PIN number protection. At this time, if you are concerned about leaving access open, the only recourse is to not remember the login info and type both the login and password each time to switch out of this app. That is very inconvenient. I would think that for a backup software that makes security its big selling point, several security options should be available.
