[Shiloh the Golden Retreiver (sic) placed an advertisement in the Buy/Sell section of the Forum, announcing a pending firmware upgrade to the Aries. A discussion ensued, on-topic, but he indicates he would prefer not to have it take place on his ad thread - so here it is.]
It is great the Aries will now be able to access a USB drive directly, without an intervening need host PC or NAS drive. This is a big upgrade.
Have they yet expanded their control app to allow use of anything other than just an iPad? (As I recall, they do not even offer an app for iPhone, and no Android yet.)
