Great viewer. Needs "open as…"
It's a great viewer, opened all sorts of video files that I threw at it (it choked on a few too).
It needs the option to pass documents to other programs. Press and hold on an item and it offers options of where to open the item. I'm sure it would work for a document that it could grab the whole thing of (pdf, mobi, epub); but I'm not sure how that would work for a 2 GB video file as some suggested.
I wish I could copy photos to my iPhone/iPad photo library from this program. Selecting multiple photos at once would be best!
And it's only READ ONLY, you can't save items to the drive or delete them (delete items and/or folders would be really nice to have).
I didn't realize I could use this over the cellular network. I just did a quick try and it worked(!) and I'm surprised at how well video ran over the AT&T 4G, the HD video couldn't keep up, but the rest of it worked :)
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.
