This app seems to take several goes to connect but after getting it going, seems to work fairly well and find it improves with each update. Find it doesn't recognise many sound formats (flac for instance) so if I want to stream my music to my phone it tends to download them instead which is a nuisance. Why doesn't it understand all music formats my phone does?
This build is always on and add's itself into the system startup as a result will impact your data utilisation and cpu which totally destroyed my battery usage.. Ive since killed the auto startup and only run this when I need it.. Might want to consider changing how this app behaves in the background
In contradiction to what is written down in some reviews, this app does let you upload files. It is under the share function. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, with an option to do an automated media backup per household device in a dedicated folder. Very cool personal cloud service.
So far so good, didn't register properly first time but all ok now with my nighthawk router. Has backed up fone albums pretty fast. Working well Shame app doesn't have an upload feature, but desktop version does so not all bad.
Works well, but... (((NETGEAR TEAM - PLEASE ADD ENCRYPTION!))) This app works well, but make sure the hard drive attached to the router has auxiliary USB power. The netgear Nighthawk does NOT provide enough power to run a 2.5" drive on its own. Without extra power you'll notice this app does not connect or sync properly. The same goes for Netgear ReadyShare Vault desktop app. This can be solved by connecting a USB Y cable to the hard drive, with one branch connected to a USB AC adapter, and the other connected to the router.
Firstly it doesn't connect. Secondly it give me "Unfortunately Ready cloud has stopped working" great app (not). You would think they would test these apps before making then available to the public. Waste of time.
The app now uses MyNETGEAR single sign-on accounts instead of ReadyCLOUD accounts. When you first sign on after upgrading, you are guided through upgrading your account.
