Minor bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
It could be great - if only
I would have given one more star if the developers had a more recent release. Going back to 8/15 for the latest release when we're already near the end of October tells me the developers aren't trying hard enough to fix the issues this app and the device that goes with it definitely have. Why can't I stream videos to my iPAD Mini without it stopping and starting every 30 seconds (or 2 minutes if I'm lucky).
Whenever I stream video from my PBS app, I never have issues. I also have a Seagate Media app that works flawlessly (along with the GoFlex device it works with).
I wanted to give this app & device a try because it's a great idea to be able to plug in SD cards & USB drives as external storage. It gives users much more flexibility. Unfortunately, the execution of this idea didn't work out so well. What's weird is that it works much better with my new ipod touch - not perfectly but workable. So maybe they programmed this to work with only newer devices - I don't know. If the developers ever read their reviews: PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP.
Crashes between every file transfer
Every time I transfer a file from the SD card on my MobileLite G3, this app will crash when trying to transfer the next file.
And don’t tell me to reboot the app. This is 2019.
Really poor performance and frustrating.
Not much choice
If you bought a MobileLite, you don’t have much voice but to hope the app get better with time. Unfortunately history seems to show the app moving backward. As of now all video streaming is out with iOS 8.02. You can only copy five photos at time from the MobileLite to your device. This is a fix for the previous problem of it crashes with large file numbers. The app itself seems to be the problem because copying a folder with large files numbers is no problem. The thumbnail caching routine is super slow and makes the entire app laggy. Something happened at Kingston because their app dev team seems to have fallen down (and seems poised to continue to fall). I recommend to minimize use of the app and try to get by using SMB transfer apps, and Infuse to copy videos off the MobileLite.
