There are android and iphone apps to control the player remotely. It's not about original intent of the machine but it serves much better as music server IMO.

Good At First, A Few Headaches After

I own a PogoPlug and though it does what they advertise, what they don't advertise is what's causing me trouble. For example, you'd think that browsing your files through their web interface would be as easy as using "finder" or "windows explorer" on your computers. Unfortunately, it's got a lot of quirks that make it tough (like inability to check folder sizes; sorting problems, etc.) to use.

my 2nd Pogo

By

from Fayetteville, AR  -  Business Professional

This is the second pogoplug device I have purchased. I flashed the firmware of the older device and lost the ability to use the pogo service. Even though I reinstalled the cloud engine software, the NTFS drive attached to it was basically readonly in their interface. Long story short, i couldn't have my cake and eat it too.. so I bought this newer model and attached a different drive to it for the sole purpose of backups, both do the attached drive and offsite to the cloud. It works, simple to setup and even at the expense of buying a second device and drive for this functionality I find it a great value.. both of them. I highly recommend this product. The smartphone app is the only real disappointment.. you can't direct WHERE you want your backup to go (straight to the cloud, not your own hard drive). Not to say it doesn't work, you just don't have as much control as I would have liked. NOTE: the instant upload of photos can be directed to the local drive, in settings there is a backup option for your entire camera roll that ignores your target directory and goes to the cloud. Not a huge deal breaker, just a slight ding in my opinion.

Perfect mobile back up for students

By

from Columbus, OH  -  Freelance Video Producer

My student uses it to back-up her photos and important files...So inexpensive, and easy to use...just add your own HD...back-up doesn't get any easier than this.

Very useful, simple, and affordable.

By

from Massachusetts  -  Practical

The pogoplug was very simple to set up with an external drive, and the interface for various devices and platforms is easy to use. For instant, personal cloud storage without any monthly fees, this is the best solution I could find. I find this great for all-around use...perhaps not up to streaming high quality video, but one can download videos stored on the device at full resolution and play them locally. As I said, the interface is great, and it's possible to share folders with other people via a link, but creating secure (password protected) folders that others may access requires an additional subscription. Pogoplug offers backup software for (free, I think) download to be used with this device, but I prefer to keep full backups on a device that's not networked.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  does this only work with iOS?
ELVIS-REY A  not sure, I bought it for my friend, I would suggest you google it and find the answer there! Sorry!
Shopper  what type of plug goes into the tablet from the device?
SCOTT S  THere is no plug it is an app that can be downloaded from the app store. This is the best personal cloud product around. Love and use mine daily.
Shopper  how many gigs?
DAVID G  The unit does not have internal storage. You supply your own. It accepts SD cards and USB 2.0 devices of any size. I have a 1.5 terabyte USB drive in the USB slot and a 8 gigabyte SD card in the SD slot. The unit itself is simply a stripped down processing device that handles the file transfer process. It is simple to use, but the simplicity imposes some limitations. I suggest you read some reviews to get a better idea if it is for you.
