- Login fixes

Need multiple-file upload capability!
The app is fine to view what I have on my home NAS. But what I really need is the ability to upload multiple files to my GoFlex. It's not uncommon to be disconnected for long periods of time, and then need to upload multiple files. I was recently on a vacation trip, and found this to be the case at the end of every single day When I wanted to upload my photos to my GoFlex Home.
Additionally, the app should not rename the files based on the timestamp of when the upload occurs. I would want to be able to upload my iPhone photos with the same name they have on the iPhone. Then when I return home, I can easily compare what has already been uploaded with what is actually on my device. When you change the filename, that makes it impossible to do!
Fix this one flaw, and you will have a fan for life (even if you limit me to a certain number of files at a time, this would be a tremendous improvement)!!!
I want to love this app
But I can't help but disappointed that there is no easy way to create a playlist for files. Also THE LACK of play when the app is minimized (background play)OR the iPhone screen goes blank is a major flaw. How can I enjoy my files (music) when the tracks stop playing when the screen fades? This could be a very useful app, but it falls short. So if you plan to only view this app and keep your screen lit up, you will love this app. For the 99% of users that don't work that way, you will be annoyed much like myself. The physical drives that this app is associated to is great, but this App lacks the well thought out integration that the PC software has.
Well see if seagate improves functionality. If they do, I'll update my review.
Update: Still no meaningful updates. This is very disappointing seagate. I would think it would be a somewhat easy fix to address the majority of complaints on your reviews. Reducing the rating in hopes that you make changes.
I like it that it is nicely organized and I can view my files, photos, music, and videos on the go. However, it seems to be limited to only older version file formats of Office product. The videos have to be supported by Apple. The most disappointing of all is not being able to download the files I need on the go or not being able to email a file- at least I couldn't figure it out or saw a way to do it. The app said that we can share files with others but there was no way of doing that either. My purpose of this app was to be able to access my files on the go and download or email files when I need to. If the app does have these features that I am not aware of or am clueless of, then this app needs to be more user friendly. Is there a tutorial out there?
