This really needs an update (including the WebAccess), connecting to the NAS is a hit & miss experience, it will take time to connect on your local network and I wasn't able to connect even once remotely (internet).

I was hesitant about loading the app based on the reviews to date. However I went ahead and downloaded the app after already setting up the NAS from a home computer. The first test I performed was to take many pictures from my Google Pixel 3 XL and load them to the externally accessible folder after logging on via the app. One thing I will look into doing is accessing this folder from my Google hub Max to display the pictures on its display.

worked perfectly. my Buffalo NAS dropped its ip on the network. this app is the only way to find it, and reassign the ip to get it back online. way better than the desktop version. I don't think this works for all of the Buffalo product lines but it seems tonwork really well for my LinkStation NAS drive. this is a must have app.
