Utterly broken. does not work. after finally setting it up , which took an age. clicking on pictures to share from your gallery via this app. you are presented with a screen of no devices. Its a real shame because netgears hardware is very solid, but there software and apps are what leaves them far behind QNAP AND SYNOLOGY . they should really hire some better software devs for there nas products
Offline completely as of March 31,2017. Unable to access my drives at all from app or web. Many clients in the same situation as per online search. Complete let down. Not impressed. Accessing my files by connecting drives via sata to another computer directly. NAS is now useless and netgear hasn't reached out in any way to explain or comment on the situation. 😤
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?
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.
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
The reason I put 2 stars is, this app can be frustrating to use. Constant issues with trying to access device remotely. Missing features include: - Ability to create a folder share link to easily share contents of the folder - ability to quickly download all contents of a folder with a simple tap, currently requires user to individually download - for some reason I was able to access my device though the app today, but was unable to visit via the readycloud website, but was able to access via the app to show some photos, however due to being unable to easily share the photos folder as a link, was forced to show through phone which took ages to load each photo. - another feature request would be to long press folders, and give reasonable options to manage the folders Thank you.
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.
