It could be great - if only
I would have given one more star if the developers had a more recent release. Going back to 8/15 for the latest release when we're already near the end of October tells me the developers aren't trying hard enough to fix the issues this app and the device that goes with it definitely have. Why can't I stream videos to my iPAD Mini without it stopping and starting every 30 seconds (or 2 minutes if I'm lucky).
Whenever I stream video from my PBS app, I never have issues. I also have a Seagate Media app that works flawlessly (along with the GoFlex device it works with).
I wanted to give this app & device a try because it's a great idea to be able to plug in SD cards & USB drives as external storage. It gives users much more flexibility. Unfortunately, the execution of this idea didn't work out so well. What's weird is that it works much better with my new ipod touch - not perfectly but workable. So maybe they programmed this to work with only newer devices - I don't know. If the developers ever read their reviews: PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.
Good but app still needs work
I just got back from a trip where i used this to back up my photos from my DSLR. I backed up the files to two different hard drives each time. It was slow, but worked. It wasn’t until i got home that i discovered a few photos had not transferred. Granted it was around 5-10 maybe out of about 4,000, but it was still stuff I would never get back. The biggest problem with the software is that it doesn’t tell you how many files are in a folder so when you try to verify that everything is there, there’s no good way to do it. You have to guess based on the last file in the folder and hope everything else got through. Aside from that, it worked nicely and pretty reliably. With some updates, it could be really solid.
Great idea, could use some fixes
Fantastic concept, I love being able to have accessible data from SD cards and flash drives, but the execution leaves something to be desired.
The app doesn't process other video formats (.avi, etc) and the speed between device and storage is sluggish, too slow to really stream. I pick the stuff I want to watch well in advance and move it to the offline files. Even that takes a very long time.
If they can play all video formats and kick the data rate up by 1000%, I will give this 5 stars!
