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.

Doesn’t support MOV


I use macOS and iOS. Downloaded this app thinking it would allow me to view my files on the NAS. It can view most that I have, but found that it certainly doesn’t work with MOV. It would be nice to have 1 app to review all files on my NAS without converting, or changing from my native format on Mac. If this changes, I would rate this higher. I will keep checking to see if there are any other issues.

Thank you
