It's OK but could be a lot better. I'm a photographer and love being able to access all of my photos on the go. However I have a couple of complaints. Why are there no thumbnails? I have to download the whole folder to find the specific picture I want. If there were thumbnails I could select the picture I wanted. Also, when I do need a whole folder why can't I download it in one, I have to download each individual file. Its poor and sitting in the past, definitely in need of an update.
Good but unreliable When it works, it's fine though rather limited in functionality. ("Unfortunately, CrashPlan has stopped.") This app probably needs work if not a complete rewrite. On the Windows side, CrashPlan is outstanding, better than MozyHome, but this app brings down the whole product. Worse still, it appears that no one at Code 42 is minding the store.
It could be better I wish there was a search feature, because navigating the folders is such a huge pain. Accidentally click the wrong folder? That sucks, because hitting the back button will just take you to the home screen, and so will the back icon at the top left of the app. I'm happy to have peace of mind that my files are backed up, I just wish it was easier to access them as promised.
Too basic Just about fulfils the ability to restore files. What about other key features like how much has been backed up? Any issues or problems backing up? Last back up etc.
Not totally a chocolate teapot PC backup service is good but this app has its ups and downs with sporadic phases when it won't download files from the backup. When it's working and I need to access a file that my computer has backed up then it's very handy indeed.
I got the app for when I am out-and-about and want a file from my computer that was backed up to CrashPlan's server. Once the file is downloaded, one can edit with the appropriate app. The app has worked perfectly for me on each of the several dozen test runs, plus a couple of real-life downloads. It is quite intuitive to use and required no Studying of any User Manual (Yay!) Drilling down to the desired folder is just about the same as on the computer version, so there was no new stuff to learn. (Again- Yay!) Two things I miss are being able to restore the deleted files and restore past versions of files. An e-mail to Code 42 support provided a fast reply with a perfect solution: Use CrashPlan's Web Restore feature with your browser. Easy Enough. One thing it can not do that would be spiffy: If you download a file and edit it, the changes are not sent back to CrashPlan. But, you can put the file on your computer later and CrashPlan will catch it on the next backup. I suppose if they added a feature to backup changed files from this app the app would be larger & I'd write a review saying the app is too large.
