Pros and cons of StreamToMe app for iPhone and iPad

StreamToMe app good for

Great application! simple, great, and with the mac version just incredible I have always looked for a simple solution to all that it does!. But one thing that would be great to add, is to be able to see .psd files. And keep adding support for more and other file formats! keep up the good work!
Very great app ! Just few issues with MKV seeking. Could you fix that please ? 5 stars when this little bug is fixed. AirPlay on apple tv works like a charm.
Au top, parfaite ... NOTE : CAN you please add a WOL Fonction !?
Could you just add a bouton like the reward 30 secs, for forwarded 30 secs... Or better with the optional timed jump settings, like 30s, 60s, 90s... As well ???? Otherwise its a good program, and the second ive used "for free" as a jailbroken app thatve bought for a regular use. Many thanks to make my life easier...
This app is really amazing ! I have a PC that I use mostly as a server, storing music, photos and videos. And for the latter, I couldnt find any app to stream them. And it is exactly what StreamToMe does, perfectly, fast and easily. I can then watch my movies in .avi or whatever on my IPad, as well as my pictures.
Ive been using StreamToMe for a month and it works as advertised. The app on the iPhone runs without a glitch and the server app installed on my early 2009 mac mini is so unobstrusive that I can barely tell it is running and performing the streaming on the fly. I think the app has room for improvement, and Ill email the developer with a few suggestions, but I give it five stars for the seamless mac/iPhone integration and ease of use. Recommended.

Some bad moments

For most of files Ive tried it hasnt worked :( I really dont recommend it. Ive found other better apps that work much better than this one.
Program doesnt show thumb ( folder.jpg, .jpg). Not sorted by type of files, all files ( jpg, avi, mkv, mp3 - all files in one folder) PLEX look very nice
After I paid for it and it installed, couldnt even run it! It keeps crashing when I try to open it.
This app is a time vampire wast of time. Save your money does not work at all.
Since last update, you cant leave the player in the background; it wont shuffle to the next song. Please fix this.
Ive been using it for over a year and while I was pretty happy with its functionalities, Im getting more and more frustrated with it. See, the makers of this app seem to consider it perfect as it is since they havent updated it in ages. And with the recent update to iOS 8, new problems seem to arise. Its getting more and more difficult to scrape the video back and forth. Ialso having problems with photo display. The proportions are wrong when you open a new picture for about 1 second and the pic resizes to its proper ration. Somtimes it changes size two times before getting it right. Its extremely annoying since I like to watch my girly pics in a diaporama style, with each picture displaying for a few seconds. I think these problems are due to the code not veing optimiEd for the last two versions of iOS. But what do I know? Im looking for a better straming app, now.

Usually StreamToMe iOS app used & searched for

media library, itunes movie, mpg player, itunes music player, itunes video player, and other. So, download free StreamToMe .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
