    I hate when they say "The main downside is not having the convenience of keeping a copy of documents stored in a third party server that?s accessible anytime, anywhere, just in case your home connection is down or the power goes out." um pretty sure if your internet goes down you can't access the cloud anyway?

    The Iphone app works ok but the android app almost never connects to any of the File Transporters that I have. If I keep banging on it for about 20 minutes it might connect, but by then I am so pissed off that I really do not care. Once it connects it works ok. While you can actually open a doc within the iphone app, in android all you get is a very basic file manager. And there is no method for which to store locally cached copies. Piss poor implementation of what should have been an awesome product!
