Note: This app requires the Corsair Voyager Air or Corsair Voyager Air 2 drive. It is necessary to update the drive firmware to 2.0.0 or above. The Voyager Air and Voyager Air 2 can stream up to five 720p HD videos at the same time, and have a battery that lasts up to seven hours between charges.
I've had my Voyager Air for several years now and it's still going strong. I have no idea why so many people are rating this app one star. If your device isn't being detected by the app, it means you have a first generation Voyager Air drive (like mine) and you need to update your firmware. This is very easy if you have a computer (which you must if you've put files on the drive in the first place) and if you can read (which you can also do because you're reading this). Once you update it, you will be ready to go. The app itself is very straightforward with a nice, clean interface. It recognizes folder structure so if you have a lot of files grouped by series or years, etc, this makes locating them very quick and easy. It's true to its claim that 5 devices can stream at once. While it's not possible to sync devices together, it's easy to start the same movie on multiple devices so you can watch the same movie with others on your own screen. The more common occurrence, at least in my family, is that all are watching their own thing. With 1TB, you have plenty of room for all the movies and TV shows you could desire and certainly more than you can watch on one vacation. We drive to Disney World every year, 4 days out and 4 days back in the car. Get some iPad holders for your vehicle and you'll have a much happier ride with kids!
Works perfectly. If you have an older Voyager Air drive, you may have to update your firmware for this app to recognize your drive. New firmware and software is vastly superior so its worth it. Google how to update and you will be good to go.
Software works as advertise. You need to update to Voyager Air firmware to work with this version of apps. Note, your password will reset after the update.
The upgrade to the new version is a disaster! It doesn't recognize the drive, it doesn't allow update the firmware, it's just a dead piece of software. I know it's software since other apps connect to the drive seamlessly. What a shame for Corsair! The app is here for more than half a year, customers are complaining, but Corsair does nothing to fix the problem.
DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!!
When i first bought this drive i was so excited. Worked like a charm. Now with their own app its rendered useless. But wait, theres another option. Download filebrowser and everything will work again. It's not as detailed as the air app, but you can easily access all the content with ease. Don't waste your time with this app until they update it. Use filebrowser!
Okay first I will add that if the drive is updated, hen he app version 2.0+ May work. Having said that I had to update the drive first. Luckily I had an old app on an old iPad which I didn't update the app yet so it could still recognize the drive. Then I followed he instructions to update the firmware on the drive to 2.0 and then to 2.3. Then I ran the new version of the app and it worked to connect To the voyager drive. What a mess I have to say since there was. I way to connect to the drive if you updated the app. There manufacturer should have corrected this to connect to an old drive with the 2.0+ version of the app so hat you could update the firmware. Now things are running smoothly and I can connect to the drive.
It was working just fine until iOS8 came out and now it doesn't work at all. I even dated the firmware and the app - still doesn't work. What a total waste of time and money invested. Do NOT BUY!!
What a shame. Used to be a great app with an awesome piece of hardware. Still works with my computer but the Apple apps are now totally worthless.
My phone connects with hard drive thru the wifi but the app does not recognize it.
