Great service. Weak App.

I really like the Backblaze service, but the app is terribly limited in at least two ways that impact it's usability for me:

1. The app is incredibly reluctant to grab updated summary information from the Backblaze servers. I have a Mac Mini with a large external drive that's still trying to finish the initial upload after a couple months. Consequently, while away from home on business I like to pull up the app to check my upload process (not to mention occasionally retrieve files). Unfortunately, I find the upload total rarely updates. After a week or so of refreshing the app or killing the app using the multitasking/app-switcher/app-killer function then re-starting the app. I'll finally see a new total and it'll be a couple dozen more gigabytes. Clearly the uploads continue but the app just isn't gathering/reporting it well at all.

2. The second is short and sweet. I don't believe there should be a bandwith cap on downloadable files. Is there a necessary or unavoidable technological limitation causing this? If it's just a proprietary business decision, drop it. More often than not I've needed a file on mobile while on the road yet been unable to access it for download because it's size is reportedly too large.

It Does What it Claims to Do

I use Backblaze B2 as my primary backup destination for both my servers and my desktops. There are some files in there that I might need in an emergency, and this app makes it easier for me to get to them from any of my Apple devices. That’s all I need it to do, so I’m happy.

Love the service, hate this app

I can never get this app to fully connect to Backblaze, making it absolutely worse than useless.
