What's New in Version 5.5.14
Majority of my files are gone...Forever!
I hadn't accessed my files since end of January 2016. Then on April 9th I started noticing I couldn't retrieve my photos, then pdf's, then just about everything other than the files I touched in January. Support told me "some" users' files were on hard drives that crashed. At first I did not panic, said to myself "They've gotta have backups, right?" Boy was I wrong! They offered a refund of all money I paid them in the past year -- better than no compensation, but I too, had files that I did not back up elsewhere, thinking that the "cloud" would keep them safe for me. Could this happen with other cloud storage services? Maybe! Would I trust Pogoplug again? If your babysitter lost your child, would you use them again? I have learned my lesson!
Gotten steadily worse and cheap isn't a substitute for functional
I've been using this service for a couple years and like other users I've found overtime it has gotten less and less functional. Remote Access only seems to work if I'm at home and on the same network and only then about half the time. When I'm on the road, which is often I've never gotten it to work.
For about the last 3 months nothing on my iPhone or iPad seems to have backed up at all so I've given up and switched to other services.
Yes Pogoplug might be cheap for unlimited storage but no price is worth it for something that just doesn't work.
I'd also note that the Pogoplug backup apps on my iMac wreak havoc with my home network. Even worse when using one of the Pogoplug docking stations. It worked initially but last time I tried after 11 weeks (I'm not kidding) it had backed up only 8% of my 2.5TB hard drive. I could have done better with my old modem. Not having to mention causing endless problems with my home network connection.
Sadly I simply cannot recommend any spend money for this service.
How can an app get worse over time?
I am a fan of the price of the storage part. However the music player on the app and video player for that matter gets worse and worse every release. What upsets me is I know it's not a file issue because the file played historically and it played even on this version. I have heard "delete and reinstall" and "hard reboot" and all the other level one tech garbage. End of the day they need to fix this ASAP or the company is going to fail. Don't waste money until more people give this a higher rating. Otherwise the developers are going to keep telling people it's on your end. Like they did to me :(
