    LOVELY! Works JUST like I expected. Their WP Support is only going to push me to recommend these to more clients and friends!

    The WP app doesn't support HTTPS so it can't be used securely over the internet.

    Requires DSM 4.0 or higher. My DS107+ is only supporting DSM 3.1. :-(

    It's great to have Synology support on Windows Phone! This app does exactly what it says - and it gives me a MUCH better way to get notifications from my Diskstation instead of emails and standard SMS. Great little Synology Diskstation monitoring and notification app!

    This app presents sparse information about my Synology unit. But, it's basic, good info. And the basic commands like restart and shutdown work perfectly. I like the beep command, it freaks out visitors.
