Logging in is slow and confusing
Login authentication is slow. Clicking on "Web Interface," which seems to be the only option for managing the device, asks you to authenticate over and over again. Actually, the management interface may have opened in a browser window, but the app fails to take you to it.
Config changes are slow to take affect but I think it's due to the device, not the app.
Not impressed & it’ll cost ya
OK Netgear, people actually use their iPad horizontally not vertically. And some actually type either on the screen or with a keyboard and the keyboard is horizontal. OMG if its designed for iPad, at least test it on an actual iPad. Or even an iPhone for that matter. Think horizontal. My second issue is: REALLY? You are going to charge per device? OMG just another way to extract money from your loyal base. The third issue is the extreme labor intensive way to add each device. Seriously there is no option to have it search an existing, functioning network and you simply supply the password for all or each device? Unbelievable. And create another account/password and alternately use Facebook credentials as an alternative? Please think about IT security. On the positive side, the interface is very pretty. The layout from what I saw before I gave up was clear and appeared easy to work with. But I suspect very few will have the time/patience to set this up and then find themselves with another yearly/monthly $ draw from their assets. Netgear makes great products and this app, if fixed, should be FREE as it would encourage more purchases of their products.

Thank you for your input. We are working on improving the tablet support and the device onboarding flow for future versions of the app.
App review - hard to use
This is NOT a renew of the hardware but rather the software and the installation/setup process which was rather like watching Scotland trying to qualify for the World Cup: disappointing and irritating. First the app forces portrait mode rendering my iPad Pro with a keyboard rather useless.
The setup is not very intuitive and perhaps confusing if things are done in the ‘wrong’ order.
I purchased a NAS214 and four 12TB disks, the max configuration for this device. Putting the disks in before configuring the device maybe made things more difficult. As soon as I put the disks in and power on the device it started syncing the data. I let this run for about 5 hours and then powered down to get this app and configure the device.
After configuration was done the device was recognized, on my LAN with an IP. Status showed it configured as RAID5 giving about 37TG. With about 12 hours of resyncing the formatting is about 1/3 complete. With RAID5 there is no need to write 48TB of zeros. You can write the control structures only. No real validation of the ‘health’ of the disk is accomplished by this as its almost certain the the controller with ‘eat’ bad sectors with no errors until the free pool is exhausted.
You only to a setup once so if the hardware is reliable I would probably get a bigger one of these if all goes well.

Thanks for this valuable feedback. We will definitely work on improving the NAS setup process. For further clarification please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you resolve any issues.
