No user manual in app--Exercise in futility

Everything is trial and error. No manual with reader. No manual online. Cannot access user manual in app

Would like to amend to one star. After four attempts, finally got a response from Transcend which referred me to the absolutely useless Support page.

Rough Around the Edges

Core functionalities work.
However, sharing files directly from SD card to Apps will fail.

Also, Google Drive integration no longer works and needs and update.

No RAW photo support

Can’t handle raw photos. I bought this to transfer photos from my camera, but there is no way for me to use them.
