I tried this solution because of concerns over privacy with the known "big" providers. Sync among computers works fine, as well as with the iPad. But the android app really sucks. First of all there is no option to "refresh", trigger sync. Files I have added in another computer seem to get synced whenever they want or never. I have tried everything without success, after digging in the settings. Just FIX IT and make it as functional as the iOS version.
Can't believe Synology is not making an effort on this Long story short : this app doesn't accept to sync folders from the external SD card (where most of the people have their file/pics). Also I can't see any sync direction. This app puts a bad name on Synology. Come on guys!
One day it'll be good. (We hope) The choice between up, down or two way sync is a big improvement. Problems start for me when the .cloudstation folder at the root of the internal sd becomes to large (if it gets above 256mb ((not counting log files)) the app won't open but if you delete these files a full resync is necessary. I think this app should have a better way of trimming thease files. (i think they have made big progress in this however as the same sync task once created a few GB of data)(yes I'm syncing TB with an Android device)
Was working great It was a great app, allowing you to have essential files always available even without any Internet connection. However it stopped to sync my files properly, making it useless and even dangerous for the integrity of my files. Synology, please react or comment at least!
There is something wrong with the updates by Synology. Now DS Cloud cant sync subfolders both on my PC And S7 And Xperia Tablet. I am forced to reinstall and link again to the diskstation numerous times. Very time consuming and totally vexing. You have to key in DS details, ID, password every single time! Feel like throwing out the whole NAS. Subfolders sync is also not working...! The previous versions work better. Please do your coding and testing properly before rolling out your updates. The quality control is terrible. Nov 16 - discovered it cant connect to S7...Usable... Connection errors everytime, forcing me to key in the password time and again. Sync subfolders are also not working.
Just doesn't seem to work on Android. We've been using it fine on Windows. So I was excited to try it on an Android tablet we have (Galaxy Tab A) I first tried to sync to an external SD. But after pulling my hair out due to repeated permissions issues, I then tried to move the sync'd file store to to the internal storage. Permission issues went away, but it just doesn't sync changes. It seems to get some changes, but not all. And I have yet to see it sync back any changes I have made locally on the tablet (modified Word files and PDFs so far). Very flaky. Very disappointed.
