Ratings and Reviews
Don’t understand the hate...
PhotoStation has been long in the tooth for a while now. Moments is a clear path forward for those who refuse to pay Apple or give up everything to Google. Compared to Apple it supports more platforms giving you future mobility. Unlike Google the files are in your house not some magically “free” cloud. You can literally pull the plug and destroy the drives if you feel the urge - but therein lies the rub. You need to treat your Disk Station like the holy grail it is. I may go a little overboard but in addition to parity RAID you’ll want an additional physical backup and an encrypted cloud one too. Throw your DS, router, and modem on battery backups and you’ll be good to go!
It’s a toy for now
Not a serious purpose built app. Doesn’t upload photos in the background. Get stuck when uploading a video in a format it doesn’t like. I have been keeping my phone on for a few nights now to get my photos backed up. Will probably cause burn in on the oled screen.
Other apps from competing services will prefetch data from iCloud and upload several photos/videos in parallel. They are much faster and handle errors in a user friendly way. This app is clearly built by people who are too abstracted away from actual users. Bad product team!
Always been amazed and impressed with Synology. We use the bigger ones in our corporate offices holding over 100TBs of data.
This review is based on my personal DS412+ I have at home. My entire family has been using photos but always wished we had something that would read the exif data and organize it. Well now it’s hear and I am happy to say so far it works really well, especially for a beta.
They even added a way to mass delete all the photos and videos on your phone after they have been backed up to free up some space! Yes finally!!!
The only things I hope they do fairly soon although certainly not a priority is to make the screen adjust correctly on the iPhone X.
