*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.

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.

Needs to support native HEIF/HEIC aka Live Photos

This app works very well except for one thing: lack of support for Live Photos, or HEIF/HEIC format that Apple has used since iOS 11. Currently, DS Photos converts these files to JPG and a MOV for the movie. This isn't ideal and the native format should be supported. With HEIC this app would receive 5 stars.
