It does exactly what I was looking for

My problem - Synology NAS drive with almost 70K photos accumulated over 20+ years and no easy way to view them. Could not find any digital photo frames that could talk to local file server, so got gently used iPad and with this app turned it into very decent slideshow device.

Setup was quite straightforward (help link helped) - you need to add WebDAV package to Synology and create user for the app. It discovered all the photos and handled them just fine ( FileBrowserGO app I tried first could not handle slideshow of that size ).

As a suggestion - may be make it easier to discover network drives in future versions?

Does what it says it does

I needed an app to turn an old iPad into a slideshow / digital frame. There are a lot of photos / they won’t fit on the local storage of the old iPad. Set this app up to view the share on my nas, indexed and it worked like a champ. I am having a small issue now where the no WiFi icon is showing up but it continues to play and restarting the app seems to clear it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much Rowley! Regarding the no WiFi symbol, it might be that the iPad has a weak wifi reception and/or that the NAS doesn't answers quickly and then the app goes into offline mode.

This app is awesome!

Thanks Mischa for your creative app for Synology NAS users. I have been searching for random photo application and found your app. It has been two weeks and our family is reliving our memories for many years. I have more than 100k photos in my collection.

If any of you have a Synology NAS with lots of photos and videos, Pixette is your app!
