It seems to work fine on my mobile & tablet but not attempted to use away from home yet so can't comment on distance communication. My only negative experience so far is that it fails to find 1 or 2 videos that are on the Personal Cloud & for some reason, holds and maintains old file names that have been amended on the cloud, even after cache cleaned & even after app uninstalled then reinstated. On the laptop, the filenames are correct. Other than that, I'm happy with the app.
The Seagate media app and my Seagate drive enables me to view my media easily without a computer. I love it!
Some functions need updating here and there which I'm sure Seagate is always working to constantly improve. Other than that I love this app and I love all my seagate and Lacie products! My personal cloud is a dream as it simplifies keeping a backup of all my files and anything important! Some of the best parts of using a device like this is that you never have to connect it with a cable to transfer files & content and also you could be sitting on the other side of the world and still be able to access your content!
Its great when it works. I use it for storing my movies and music and streaming it wirelessly through the house. Downside is the laptop is the only one with a strong connection to it and the mobile app can see it but wont connect on many occasions. Have tried reinstalling but still having problems
Ok for photos and videos but I need to be able to remotely access pdf and doc files on my mobile which this app won't let me do. Can't find another app to do this. It's a bit of a disappointment to be fair. Seagate website says to use sdrive app but this is either not or no longer available on android. Sent message on Facebook but got no reply
It's fine but only when it's working. Mostly it says my phone is not connected to Wi-Fi which it always is. Haven't explored most features as app won't work when not connected!! Needs a LOT of effort and work to fix. Edit 9th Sept '17 - have the latest versions of everything and this app is still flaky as anything. Just isn't reliable or particularly fast or overly intuitive. Seagate, take some inspiration from Google and spend some serious time and money overhauling this cumbersome app
Bug fixes and improvements.
