App needs additional features The Wi-Drive hardware itself is excellent, however the application needs more features. For example, it doesn't even provide the option to create folders, select and copy multiple files at once and cannot be used to access and copy the files from the SD card to the Wi-Drive. The network options are pretty basic, but have everything needed to setup and use the Wi-Drive, which is excellent. The network config options work flawlessly and so should the app. The picture viewer and other options have flaws.
Won't connect to internet on Nexus 4 - UPDATED Just received my Wi-Drive. Can connect to Wi-Drive itself without issues. Play movies and music perfectly. When I try to use the Wi-Drive app to reconnect to my wifi network, I get an error and ultimately lose my connection to Wi-Drive (but can use my home wifi connection). Hoping this is just a bug. Please let me know if anyone has a fix. UPDATE: Make sure you visit the Kingston website and download the updated for the device itself (not the firmware update option in the APP). This fixed my issue. Updated to 5 stars.
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!
Works great! Love the app and with drive. Only thing I wish is to add option to choose what player you want to use from settings since android media player doesn't support many types of files such as avi
Can't connect on Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 The app crashes as soon as I try to connect to the Wi-Drive on both my phone and tablet. Just a massive waste of money and really disappointing for me. It's been weeks and still no word on if a fix will even be made available.
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.
