Great app I love the apps capabilities, and what it and the hardware (Wi-Drive) have to offer. I just wish that it could get updated to fix some bugs that have been persistent, like crashing upon launching it, and sometimes freezing during video playback. Thx for your hard work!
Ok, but not great The android software is a good start but has some glaring omissions that need addressing. multi select, transfer resume, success/failure notifications, join existing networks as NAS (SAMBA shares), support 3rd party file browsing apps The wifi range is good but it is far from an infallible link. The drive is only visible through this awful software, it gets the job done but is a bare minimum solution.
Spartan. Regardless of limitations of and frustrations with the capabilities of the device itself, the app is functional – but only barely. It's fairly clear that nobody on the development team bothered to attempt to apply any of the Android UI design guidelines, as the interface is visually out-of-place and interactively unintuitive. It's extremely unfortunate that this is the only way to transfer files onto the device over Wi-Fi, as it's the largest stumbling block in front of an otherwise acceptable product.
No I bought it (of course) but it crash every time I open it, plus super slow! Galaxy Nexus JB stock rooted!
Rubbish App just blows. Can't do anything except read from the device - how do you write to the thing from your tablet? Other file managers can't see the wi-drive, and the stupid app only reads the wi-drive and local storage, doesn't even recognise that there is a micro-SD card inserted. I bought this PoS to transfer videos and photos from my GoPro's micro cards via the tablet (Asus Transformer) while I'm out in the field and without a laptop. Not much chance of that happening. The wi-drive runs Linux, why on earth does it not run a simple samba server instead of this fixed IP address BS? And when connected to a PC via cable, the drive is slower than slow - 10 minutes to copy 2.5G. Geez. Expensive PoS. Not recommended. Oh yeah, the app crashes if active when the tablet sleeps and you wake it back up. Just fantastic coding fellas.
Needs some tweaks I got the wi drive and love it. I recommend it constantly. That said, app needs some work. Personally hate the dark theme. The other issue comes from the app never properly closing, this is great while you are using the drive, but if you disconnect and try to reconnect, it will search for the drive until the end of time. We need a refresh our exit button. Right now I have to go app management and force close. And please stop handling files. Let other apps do it.
- New GUI
- You can also access your files through a web browser. Simply open your browser, enter the IP address of Wi-Drive into the URL box, which is 192.168.200.254 and press Enter.(4)
- Video playback may require the use of a 3rd party video player that can be downloaded from the Google Play.
(4)Not all of the functions and features that are found in the application will work within the Browser
