Great at the Start, but...


I was really excited when I first received my Bolt. The idea is great and I didn’t have to worry about immediately transferring the photos I take (for work) off my phone and put them onto my computer. They were easily stored on my Bolt. I’ve had my Bolt for 3 months - I used it at least once a week. And today, I finally decided I trusted it enough to transfer important personal photos. Instead, it corrupted all of my pictures and ruined those work photos already on my Bolt. It’s a nice idea, but certainly not worth the money. As others noted, Bolt has always been laggy and there have been times it refuses to connect with my conputer. Very bummed as this was a gift and I won’t be able to use anymore. Based on other reviews, I’m sure I will never hear from Customer Support (I have contacted). Don’t bother or find a similar product from a more trusted source.

Great But Has A Couple Flaws


The concept of this whole thing is amazing and makes transferring incredibly easy, but there’s a couple of flaws that need to be fixed in order for this app to be GREAT. I am using an iPhone 7+, the app freezes very consistently, and is very laggy when selecting and moving back and forth between screens. Also, i’d soon like to be able to manage files inside of the app. On my computer, I tried to see if I were to create folders and store them on my Bolt, would they show up in the app and they don’t, which I think is kind of a big deal. The biggest flaw for me was that it’s not letting me save images and videos from my Bolt into my camera roll. I know it’s definitely supposed to be because it’s an option, but they aren’t saving at all.

Need option to select photo folder


It has worked fine with my iPhone 6S but would like the option to select my Camera Roll folder and/ or Videos folder to select photos/videos from those folders instead all photos on my phone. Since I transfer photos from my dslr to my iPad, these photos end up in my iPhone Photostream folder and are mixed in with my iPhone photos when I transfer them to the Bolt and I don’t want that. I have to then sort and delete when I transfer them to my Windows pc.
