Local Cloud Pro - App Review



You know the feeling... you've diligently prepared everything, gone out and, sure enough, there's a file you need that's on your PC.

For those of you, like me, who have experienced this scenario, another bit of help is at hand.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
In order for this to work, in addition to the App, you will need to download some, free, software on your Mac or PC from here.

Once the software is installed, copy the url (looks like 192.168.x.xxx) into the App, together with the user name and password that you set at your desk.

On the App you will now have a folder called, as expected, 'Local Cloud'. Within this folder are all the files/folders that you authorised for access earlier.

At its most basic, that is all to setting it up and then moving files from/to the folder.

Cost
The App costs $7 from the App Store... probably considerably less than a return fare or fuel, let alone your valuable time.

Indispensability
Just wait until you need a file you left in the office (or wherever), and then you tell me.

Dependability
It's straightforward and works, just like we like it.

Security
When setting the server (on your PC), you decide how much you are going to share... this is, as ever, a double-edged sword. The more you share, the less likely it is that you forget something but, the more vulnerable you, potentially, become.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Very simple, very effective.

  1. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 2.6 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    This update provides full support for the new 64-bit processors.

    In version 2.2 we've added:

    • A new revolutionary audio player. Enjoy your music directly from Local Cloud and your cloud folders. It supports MP3, M4A, AAC, WAV, and even FLAC. It perfectly integrates with iOS--you can control it from the Lock screen, Control Center, and through headphones and docking speakers.

    • The ability to save directly into the internal storage the files and folders in your Dropbox, Google Drive, or Local Cloud. Enjoy your files anywhere, anytime. Even offline.

    • A new option to open URLs received in the clipboard directly in Safari.

    We also increased the timeout to allow the sharing of folders containing many large files even on slow computers, and we've fixed some problems you reported.

    A special thanks to Yuri for the brilliant suggestions.
