MyCloud App

Unlock the full potential of your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad! The AKiTiO MyCloud App allows users of the MyCloud personal cloud server to access their digital content stored on the MyCloud unit from a mobile device. Open the app and gain access to your music, videos, photo libraries and other digital documents no matter if at home or on the road.

The latest version of the MyCloud App for iOS (v1.6.1) provides more control during music playback, comes with new icons for the GUI and includes a couple of minor bug fixes. As requested by our customers, the new functions for music playback now make it possible to skip to the next/previous song, choose from normal, random or repeat playback and continue listening to music in the background when switching to another app.

WD HDD

One of our customers recently came to us with a Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1 TB, External, 5400 RPM Hard Drive (WDBACX0010BBK-NESN) that he wanted to take apart and insert into one of our enclosures. He did not like, as he put it, “the cheap look and feel of the plastic WD enclosure” and wanted to remove the hard drive from the enclosure and install it into one of our aluminum enclosures featuring USB 3.0, FireWire and eSATA interfaces.

It seemed like a fine idea to us until he took apart the WD enclosure only to find that the hard drive within the enclosure was NOT a SATA hard drive, but rather a USB Native hard drive.

What that means is that the drive has a USB port connected to it rather than the typical SATA connector and therefore cannot be connected to the bridge board of a normal external enclosure or installed into a laptop. Basically, it can only be used in the WD enclosure.

File Upload Benchmark

Like with many things in life, there is always more than one way to do a thing. The same is true for file transfers on the AKiTiO MyCloud network drive.

You can choose between several differen ways and network protocols to upload, download and manage your files on the network drive. Which method to choose depends on how and where you would like to access the files as well as your personal preferences.

There is no one "best" solution, so in this article, we would like to help you make the right decision yourself.

The latest version of the MyCloud App for iOS (v1.6.0) includes many small changes to improve the overall user experience and a couple of minor bug fixes but it also comes with a new and very useful feature. You can now open your documents in other external apps! This means that if the MyCloud App is unable to display the file that you would like to open, you can download it to your mobile device and then open it in another app that is able to open that particular format.

The new functions of the latest version 1.5.3 of the MyCloud App for iOS are thanks to you and your feedback. As requested by our MyCloud users, you can now sort the files according to different criteria (name, type, date) and playback music files continuously, rather than having playback stop after every file.
