*You must own a Synology NAS to run this app and be running the latest Photo Station 6.6.0 package to get the complete set of features**

DS photo allows you to browse through the photo collection on your Synology NAS server on the go, as well as interact with friends using the comments in real time. Organising your photos is easy: with traditional albums, using tags to create virtual albums or with a simple tap with the timeline mode! Better yet, download albums to the iDevice to view them even when no network connection is available, and use the Photo Backup to effortlessly upload your photos taken with your iDevice onto your own personal cloud.

Videos over 4GB bug

There is an issue when you try to upload a video that’s over 4GB. It will start uploading and when the progress bar reaches the end it will start again. But if you check the folder using the file explorer, you can see the video was uploaded correctly but the will keep trying to upload it again and again... my wife uploaded a 4.5GB video 10 times without noticing. Fix this please.

Missing Many Simple Features

- This app seems to stop uploading content in the background for unknown reasons, even though background app refresh is on. I will leave the app and come back to it a while later to find it is still close to where I left off for uploading.
- It can’t upload slow-mo videos unless you keep the original file name.
- It doesn’t offer a quick retry option for files that fail to upload due to what is almost always an “unknown error.”
- You can’t drag to select a group of photos, you can only select all or one at a time.
- There’s no pause/retry button if an upload stalls, only the option to cancel; this means you have to close and reopen the app if it stalls.
- The app doesn’t keep the screen active when it seems to need to have the screen unlocked and the app on screen.
- Similarly, you have to keep your screen active and unlocked while it prepares photos to upload or it will stop and freeze.
- Has a “preparing” pause before EACH PHOTO that is uploaded. This pause can be longer than it takes to upload the photo.
- Can’t seem to simply select an album and start a slideshow for that album.

Overall, this app could use some attention to get some simple additions and changes made. Not sure what separates this from using DS File, for example.

okay but needs more functions

My family has a Synology so we use this for photo backup. As a general photo storage app it’s OK, but it’s not great for searching and viewing photos on the go (takes forever to load photos on both WiFi and data). Photo uploads are also very, very slow.
