Poor app There is a lot of scope for this app but your company is doing nothing about it. Can't delete multiple photos together, loads really slow even on WiFi direct.
Watch out - unauthorized data usage drain Violates permissions - used up 0.5 GB of my mobile data plan in one day even though I set it to back up on wifi only!! Make sure you disable this under "restrict background data" under "data usage" in your Android settings.
Uses wrong account and is public As others mention, if you auto upload photos to mybooklive it asks which folder to upload to and then ignores you and uploads to public regardless. It then creates a folder there for the first Google user account it finds on the phone not necessarily the one you are using so the filing system is useless! Use another sync option until they fix it - but it's been like this for a couple of years at least.
Ugly iOS port that does the job I've only opened this app a few times, mainly to set it up to auto upload my photos and that's it. Otherwise its a horrendously ugly iOS port that barely functions for viewing the photos from your hard drive. But all my photos end up on my hard drive at home automatically an that's worth a couple stars.
Latest update - Battery drain but reason found. Since last update battery sucked dry way quicker than before. I only have it set to WiFi upload, last full charge last night at 10pm and at 4am ish lollipop went into battery saver mode which is set at 15%.Battery useage is at 58% for WD Photos.I haven't taken any videos or photos since the update. **UPDATE** one (already uploaded) photo would not 'upload',once this deleted problem went away. Seems infinite retrying sucked battery life. Found this by manually uploading all files again and it got stuck.
Problem with multiple accounts When connecting to the drive the first time, it always connects to your first Google account on the smart device, the problem is that it might not be the primary account. it was not like that before. No good.
