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.
Provides a barebones but functional experience It is a simple app that gives you a view into your backups and the ability to download files to your mobile device. There is no search, no gallery, no preview. That's not what CrashPlan is for. It's not Dropbox. It has crashed on me a few times or I'd rate it higher.
where is the ability to back up my phone????? if I could back up my phone I would have a true cross platform backup and access of all devices and os's. it would be great to have this ability to access my phone data from my desktop or laptop vs sending an email (size restrictions) with the phone file download it to PC (if size not to big or flagged as a problem) also as others have said thumbnails needed. - thumbnails & the ability to turn off. - thumbnails should have file type (movie pic or music) size and name too.
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.
Crashplan Server runs out of bandwidth The app and service used to be nice, but of late all I get is request timed out errors. I can restore a file maybe once out of 10 tries. I've got great bandwidth on my end, so something is messed up on the Crashplan side. Sad. I used to recommend this service.
