God Bless You!

You can’t imagine what this means to me! I do design work but was disabled a few years ago and can no longer sit at a desktop computer without severe pain. Even laptops are a pain because I still have to sit up a bit. Now I can use my iPad Pro to do most or all of the work required, and be able to grab files as needed and store the projects back on my desktop with perfect ease. I can minimise the amount of time sitting up at my desktop workstation.

So THANK YOU SO MUCH for this app!! It set up easily, the price was very affordable, it performs beautifully and you have allowed me to work so much more comfortably.

No Privacy Policy

No Privacy Policy here in App Store or on the website. Notice that they have a “privacy policy” page on the website that DOES NOT contain information about how your data is collected and used. Here in the App Store: “The developer has not provided information to Apple” …

Users need assurances that the Helper App does not expose their computer to a security concern, and that none of their personal info or files are sent out to others or accessed without consent.

If this app or Helper App on computer collects any kind of data, please say so. Post the policy.

If it can be remotely accessed, or calls home for instructions, or otherwise serves the developer or anyone else, that would be of great concern.

The website also contains no info on the developer other than Twitter and email links. Even the “As seen in press” section is blank.

Is this app safe to use? Does it encrypt the networking link with computer? Does it respect privacy and not send data out? Why isn’t there any info about its privacy policy and security designs?

Update: poor response from dev. Commit to a privacy policy HERE ON APP STORE, commit to a policy to APPLE, be accountable, be clear!

After initial evaluation, looks like this dev is untrustworthy and this software could open devices to a security risk. No info is provided on how security has been implemented for this server/client link.

Developer Response ,

1. I do have privacy policy - and the link is available on the app page on the AppStore, and on my website.
2. The app collects some usage data that's not linked to your identity (also shown on the app page on the AppStore).
3. My website includes About section with info about me.
4. The app uses standard security practices, and it doesn't call home or sends any of your data to anyone.

It’s good and not good

I mean for what I’ve found so far it’s the best of the apps I can find ... they have a tv version and phone and it plays almost any type of file which is nice but it gets stuck a lot and then it doesn’t seem to do anything without closing the whole app and reloading and it’s just buggy - it needs far more error checking and when playing an audio or video file it needs better controls and it needs to create a non-rigid buffer with previews meaning it lets you go past the point of what’s in the buffer but obv plays smoother if it is. Thumb previews of image or video files would be nice too - other than that it does what it does and if the apps that claim to do this it’s the best I’ve found so far
