I just received the device and I'm a bit disappointed by it's features and the way it works. I know this is a somewhat new device and it's a work in progress so here are a few suggestions and questions.
Why does the device user USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0, which is faster? That's old technology. Most current external hard drives are USB 3.0. There seems to be a slight slowdown in accessing the media that's not on the phone, which I think it's caused by the slower USB 2.0 drive.
Why is the Wifi only 2.4Ghz .
If the unit is hooked up to the network, why can't I access it via a web portal. It might need an ID and password. I would like to mount it as a network drive.
I have a huge collection of photos (2TB+) and was planning to use this to catalog it, but I also want to use it to backup the photos and videos from all the phones in the family. I, as the administrator/owner, would like full access to all photos/videos, but at the same time each user has their own private section with their own controls. Right now, you can only share all pictures/videos or specific albums. I'm not sure if my wife is knowledgeable or willing to put her pictures into albums and share them in order to restrict others from viewing other pictures.
The way the desktop app works is quite confusing and makes no sense. We have a laptop that we share under a single ID. If I'm already logged into the desktop app and my wife wants to view her pictures, I have to disconnect from the unit and then re-connect by closing and re-opening the app. It will ask me for the user but it then emails me, as the administrator/owner, to verify that another user needs access to the system. I think it would be easier if there was an ID and password implemented instead of what it's currently configured.
The same for the phone app. Why can't I switch user without having the owner verify the access every single time.
I don't see a feature to rescan directories or pictures in order to update them, in case there have been some changes. i.e. picture edited, files/folders added/deleted/modified.
THere might be other issues or request, but these are the ones I can think of so far.
