Great as a Remote Music server
I use the MyCloud app with my WD 16 Tb only to serve up music, which is stored as FLAC files. Connections via WiFi are great and provide easy access to all the files through all my mobile devices (iPhone and iPad). The user interface is simple and straightforward. Using VLC to play the FLAC files, the MyCloud app is doing everything I want right now, giving me far more music than I can drag around on a mobile device. I can't speak to other functionality needs (movies, pictures, etc) so refer to other reviews for those pros and cons.
It work but needs some added features
This app does backup your iPhones data quite nicely but it backs up too often. If you have kids you know you have to take a ton of photos to get 1 good one then delete the bad ones. This app backs up so often that all pictures get saved to the cloud and you have to delete all those unwanted photos from both your phone and the cloud. It would be nice to be able to specify backup frequencies. I'd like to set it for once a day. My other gripes are with the My Cloud itself but isn't reflected on this review's rating.
The update that allowed multiple file support was a priceless addition. Kudos. It works seamlessly with VLC Mobile. However the MyCloud app is still buggy with playback of the usual MP4 files. Was playing a movie for my daughter on her iPad mini and it kept freezing and crashing. Passport had 80% battery life and moved it to within 2 feet of her and still happened. Fix this issue and it's a 5 star product. Don't stop improving (app/firmware updates) Thank you!
