Creates duplicate img files on backup Netgear, please fix a bug: I was surprised to see depleted storage on my NAS. After searching for large dirs, I realized that all my images were backed up 14 times (14 copies each) with 15th round in progress! Otherwise, very useful app in conjunction with ReadyNAS device. I love Netgear product line and use a number. I will set stars to 4-5 once this bug is fixed.
Wont let me do what I bought it for :( It won't let me connect if I am not in my personal wifi. I only bought it to backup Fotos on the go from mobile phones but it does not let me sync. If I loose my phone on a holiday all moments of my family are lost and that s..ks. Very disappointed that netgear customers get treated like this when they bought a product having trust it'll work.
Pretty useless so far Actually worked for a day. Then either won't connect or refreshing forever. Fiddling around for couple hours unregistered device, re-register device, complete uninstall on all devices, caches cleared, etc on and on with no resolution. Just a waste of time.
Cannot connect App works when I connect from local network. Not when I go outside. It keep saying "disconnected". There is no option to reconnect. Update2: after 1.2.10, I can no longer connect from outside. It keeps saying "refreshing".
Previous users R right... this APP sucks Had my Netgear r7000 for almost 2 years. Finally decided to use the Ready cloud and add my portable hard drive to access anywhere over the net. I upgraded the firmware, then downloaded and reg the app. Took me at least an hour to understand the directions, create an account. It worked for about 2 hours. Walked away for a couple hours, came back, it no longer sees my hard, and the FAQ has no info on the problem. After reading all others negative reports, my hard drive now has triple copies of everything, and
Battery hog Given all the reviews complaining about getting connections to work I was surprised how well it worked connecting to my phone or tablet. I am not using it to upload anything to my NAS just the occasional download from it, so why does it have to sit running in the background using huge amounts of battery? -- EDIT -- Been using it for a few days now and it's using 54 percent of my battery if I could find an alternative this would be uninstalled.
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.
