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!

Needs some tweaking

Ease of use(5/5): search for your NAS. Offers saved Log in for easy access. You can go through your files pretty easily.

Upload: (2/5) this is where the problem is. I am uploading almost 1000 photos and videos. It keeps getting stopped or some stuff won’t upload. Finally on the 5th attempt, I kept the phone plugged and app open. this seems to be the only way for it to upload without any problems.

Why are there like 10 different Synology apps that can do roughly the same thing? They should pool it all in one app and focus updates on one app instead of specifics. But so far, I like the NAS servers.

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.
