This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
**You must own a Synology NAS to run this app, and have upgraded to DSM 5.2 to get the complete set of features**
DS file is ideal to manage files stored on your DiskStation, upload or download between the NAS and the iDevice itself, or do basic editing tasks. And always securely with HTTPS support. Besides file management, DS file is also a useful tool to do anything from browsing pictures, watching videos or checking work documents when you are on the go.

- Fixed an issue where HEVC videos might fail to be played when launched from DS photo
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.
When remembering credentials I frequently need to sign in again (details are saved, but needs 3 extra taps), "open with..." functionality missing for DiskStation files (works for offline files), "image auto convert" only working in iOS 11 and photo backup feature needs user selection to "free up space" rather than everything.
Works fine but would like iOS Files integration
This app does what it says, but it would be much more useful if it fully supported the new iOS 11 Files app. You can access files from within the Files app but it’s not been optimized for it so it behaves more like it was tacked on.
