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.
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.
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.
Good for accessing recent files. But, no access 5deleted files, and needs option to download whole folders not just individual files.
Bombs on run Thought I'd try to connect to my archives from Android but no go. Too bad.
App is fixed! This is app is back to being great again. Thank you for fixing. It would be even better if it had a search function on it. That would boost it up to five stars. Thank you for fixing it!
