Ratings and Reviews

The idea is there but.....


UPDATE- the drobo is not updating to the new 3.1.6, if that’s the current version available. It tries then get stuck. As for this app, as of Jan 2018, 98% of all pics backed up are corrupt jpegs and can’t be viewed in any program out there. Rendering this app, USELESS. Still looking for a solution. Will keep you all posted.

Original review -
You never realize how many photos you have on these phones with their ever growing storage... I have over 8000 pictures on my iPhone 7. 😒. Setup as everyone says is simple. But as stated; the phone screen was on all night to backup pictures and videos. The app doesn't backup videos very well. There is no status bar so you don't know what the phones doing if the number of photos left doesn't move. It took over 7 hours to backup pictures. I hit the refresh button on the computer screen and I see its last backup was 4 hours ago. So I think the process is finished to its best ability. I'm going to mess around with this app and uploads a bit more. But I would have to say, All the ideas are there.... yet the technology is not yet up to par for the more simple people out there.

I already had to start over backing up my computers cause of a registry error... now problems with this picture backup app. 🤕🤕🤕🤒 not a good streak for drobo and I.

Not ready for PrimeTime


It just doesn't work. It'll work for a short while, but if you leave the wifi area, switch your wifi off on the device, and try and enter again? Good luck getting the app to work consistently. And since there's no manual "sync" function, there's no way to get it to function. And detecting the app and reinstalling it every time is absurd.

I've had my Drobo for years, and have been waiting for the kinds of apps that they're far behind in releasing. And now, we get these ridiculous, and dysfunctional apps that swallow up more time? Dumb. In fact, neither this or the "Drobo Access" app works. Complete waste of time & money.

Duplicate photos and videos


Recently we were uploading all our pictures from a trip. It worked great uploading all the pictures however when it uploads all the pictures it does it twice while renaming the pictures putting them in a completely different order than taken. This makes it very difficult to "sync" pictures. As now we have 1000s of pictures to go through changing names and deleting duplicates to save space.
