No one home

Stopped working some time ago and no support from whomever owns Retrospect these days. Too bad really, this was great when it worked.

Reports are not showing up

I have used the Retrospect iPhone/iPad app since I found it last year. It gave me the basics that I needed. It was a lot quicker to check the status of my backups from my iPhone than my laptop. Now I see they have upgraded it so it gives you the Report feature, too. This is handy to have. It looks nice in your screenshot but it does not show up on my iPhone or iPad.

This is s great app. I will give it 4 stars because the Reports feature is not working.

I've had Retrospect in my business and home network for almost 10-years and LOVE that I'm now able to roam the halls at work and check at home to confirm not only that backups have been done or are in progress, but I can start one if I feel the need to do so.
