Could be great I like the somewhat ease of use. Make sure you're pictures are well organized in folders before uploading. My major problem is that it's taking my photos, which are uploaded in the viewing position I want them in i.e. either landscape or portrait, and displays them properly in the thumbnail but when you click to view the image it rotates them in the direction you don't want. Can't fix it on my own and it's kind of a major issue since I bought the cloud storage to view photos on my phone on the run.
Media server unreachable So far i have not been able to remotely connect to my personalcloud. My account is setup properly and local network access works fine, but the media app says the media server is unreachable when on 4G rather than wifi. I have essentially bought a standard hdd. Expected better after returning a WD product to buy this........ EDIT. YOUR OWN LINKS TO YOUR SDRIVE DESKTOP SOFTWARE DONT WORK!
Buggy Photo thumb nail don't show on my Samsung phone. Casting to lg smart tv also didn't work for photo slide show. While transiting between photos in the slide show, the tv will switch back to tv programs instead of showing the photo slide show. The app can't access personal cloud private folder. It would be nice if this function can be added
I can use it but It really is a lot of effort to use this device via android samsung s2 tab. I can't access the personal drive on the segate device, just the public drive. Can't access via personal cloud. Access screen for media is not easily read. It probably deserves a higher rating than I've given it, I just expected full seamless, fast access via internet and home router.
Been waiting months...they still don't care!!! Going back to Western Digital...they care about FULL remote access!!! The whole point of a cloud drive is to be able to access your files. Lots of people want their content to be private and not giving us access to those is FALSE ADVERTISING! You claim that I can access my files and the only files that can be accessed are files in my public folders. Being in IT I don't see where the problem is with your developers and not giving your consumers access to whatever private folders and files that ate on the cloud drive. IT IS SAD THAT I HAVE TO USE SFTP SOFTWARE TO ACCESS MY FILE
Works well for the most part but... The app works well. It is easy to use and configure. There is one major feature that I'd like to see. I'd like to be able to play my music and videos while the app is in the background so I can still be listening while playing a game or browsing Facebook. If I could do that it would bump the rating up for sure. I'd also like to be able to access my files from another player I have so that I can create playlists on that. I wasn't able to find the path to my music from that player.
