Listening to our users: Serious Update 2

Ha, we all love to say we listen to our users, but that most often doesn't show obvious from the software. In this case I believe we can say this second serious update is all about listening to our users, i.e. solving their problems...

We have prepared a first makeover of the user interface ànd fixed a couple of important issues.



The user interface update is mainly a reshuffling of the top buttons, but we also added a couple new ones. These will allow the user to invite people to share data, ànd to add new folders or volumes as zones. Quick and easy. For more advanced stuff, the management GUI remains your friend.

The fixes we included are solving less obvious situations, but those people who love to experiment with the software may have run at least into one of them... You can find the details of the fixes in the release notes.

Enjoy!

I disagree that we're reinventing the wheel.

Freevo looks like a great product but the focus is defenitely different: freevo is a solution for home networks while at iNuron we concentrate on the online aspect.

We want to offer a solution for situations where you're not at home and you need your data (these could be media but also work related files) .

Or how about someone you work with needs to get access to your data but is not in your LAN (or not even in the same country).. Freevo isn't build to solve these kind of problems, our solution is.

kind regards,

Maarten

Dear Maarten,
Who said its solution for home networks? first UPNP support is on the roadmap, second u can use ssh tunnels and samba servers and Bang!! u got a complete LAN/WAN solution ;) "even more secure, I guess your product is vulnerable to many security risks".

Second it works on all "commonly used OS" like Windows, Linux, and Mac..

Third its open source ;)

Thanks

Dear Anonymous,

I'm afraid the genuine consumer is not looking for a 'Bang!' type of solution that requires you to install ssh tunnels and samba servers to get to something called a complete LAN/WAN solution (even though it may be workable)...

"I guess your product is vulnerable to many security risks" is not much of a concrete argument, is it? We are pretty confident about our solution, but will the consumer feel the same if he personally has to install and configure ssh tunnels and samba servers?

What does open source mean? That it is good and secure by default? And the opposite for closed source by accident? Let's not start those debates here...

It is kind of a pity that you seem to miss the opportunity both products offer separately and could have together. We are able to offer rich functionality remote (so even UPnP wherever you go if you want) as opposed to the current state of the GeexBox. I wish them all the best, and if they are interested to find out more, they know where we live... :-)

Kind regards,
Jorre.

Jorre,

What with Leopard coming out possibly on the 26th and products like Freevo you guys must be pretty worried about how to make yourselves stand out.

For a start your interface is clunky and confused, hardly the simple approach you are claiming to take.

Good luck with the future.
