Review from John Georgiou
Nice but... the ability to save files from Android is essential, until then... three stars :)
Never gets updates and really needs them. This app needs a ton of work. Multi-file upload with thumbnails is a start. It also needs sync. Thumbnails on photos would be great. It's hard to find a photo on a remote folder when all you have is a file list to pick from.
So far so great It's been working great, it even sync offline. The only setback is Version History, which cause a few files missing so far.
Perfect so far I have tried many DIY for sync and share programs. Passed all initial tests with flying colors.
Solid concept but not mature aero FS works well in the enterprise. The concept would work well with mobile devices but presently goes from computer to mobile not mobile to computer. Version 1.1.8
Solid Idea, but not fluid. It's for enterprise, not a dropbox replacement. I've been using AeroFS for awhile now, and it's pretty decent. On the desktop, it's very solid. I have three computers in two separate locations that are "serving" for AeroFS. They all automatically sync great. It's basically like a geographically distributed RAID Array that's remotely accessible. The mobile app, for android at least, is functional, but not optimal. The latest update has created this ridiculous security feature that requires devices to scan a QR Code from a web browser to sync to an existing AeroFS "server". I have a nook, with no camera, I'm hesitant to update it for fear I won't be able to connect. I also have a Nexus 7 and a Note Pro. I was trapped in a situation where I only had the tablet and needed to log in, but couldn't after the update, even though I had the password for the account. Definitely consider this a flaw-billed-as-a-feature. I can only assume it's aimed exclusively at enterprise. It's not good for a regular end user. Also, the inability for this app to write to the "server" basically breaks it as a cloud service. You can pull from the existing AeroFS servers, but you can't add to them. It's a service that's coming along, but not there.
Needs password authentication The QR code authentication is cute, but it won't work for my tablet -- which does not have a camera. I am a photographer and decided that I had enough cameras with me that I wouldn't need a camera on my tablet. But, your app provides no means of authentication on devices that do not have a camera. Please add a basic password authentication mechanism as an option. It also needs an integrated photo viewer.
