Decent, but buggy
The Olive app offers basic playback and browsing functionality, but crashes rather often. For example, the album list cannot be scrolled if any album has a name of only two characters or less, as it will crash.
The app almost seems an afterthought compared to their otherwise excellent media server devices.
This product has the worst customer service I have ever encountered in my 48 years. After the first hard drive died in less than a year, they finally replaced it after months. We have since bought two more hard drives on our own. The system is a good concept. Really has good sound quality when it works. This app is also buggy.
Buggy not working w ios8
Paid a bunch for this device. Software and firmware way behind where it was promised. But if a brick In out system until the remote and firmware solved. Wish it supported basic upnp functionality.
