Love this app!

I absolutely love this app! It does exactly what I need. I can upload all new photos from my phone to a dump file, then work on filing them where they need to go at my leisure. I love that I can see dates, file size and file names, which makes organizing so easy. I can easily view any file, change file names, send files, download back to the phone if needed, and so much more. I don’t know why this app doesn’t have better ratings. I love having a Synology NAS, and this app makes it super easy to interface with my cloud drive. It is a simple app but it does everything I need, and is easy to use. Perfect!

Does what I need pretty well

I use this to, duh..., access files on my NAS. For that it works well. This includes general app data as well as photos and videos. It does a good job streaming videos, though with few bells and whistles. I use Plex for that.

It can save files from apps like Safari. It is also able to download files from the NAS to local storage on iOS. I really like this feature as I can copy videos I want to watch onto my iPad for offline viewing, then delete them when I’m done.

I can’t recall having the app crash.

Serves my purposes

I just needed a way to access, share files and save to iPhone. This offered that which is great. People complaining about video playback pick odd choices for a video player however it does offer to download video into VLC player which is a better player. Just click the vid and VLC choice will be offered if installed.
