I just installed the latest firmware (1.3.5.015) and the latest Android app (126.96.36.1993) onto my Samsung Galaxy S II phone and can't find a way to wirelessly upload from my phone to the GoFlex Satellite. I have tried both the app and via the phone's built-in browser. Does this remain impossible? Or, am I missing something?
Thanks in advance,

Thank you. Unfortunately, I'm not seeing the "upload" option.
Using a desktop browser I do. I am directed to
and see the following buttons:
[Select All] [Download] [Upload] [Options]
Using the built-in Android on my Galaxy S II, I get directed to:
and only get the [Options] button.

I did a bit more experimenting with a friend's Android tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Here's what I found:
The ability to upload from smaller screen devices (i.e., phones) seems to be the problem.

I thought the only way to upload to the GFS was through USB.
I've got an ASUS Transformer (tablet) using the stock browser. I've looked everywhere for the upload button and can't find it. If you have managed to do an upload over WiFi I would be interested how you did it. Seagate have not really explained how the new WiFi facility works and what it achieves.

Here's how it works on an HP TouchPad running CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) using the Dolphin browser (not the Seagate 1.3 Android app):
Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for that. It worked out brilliantly. The only difference I have is I can't use the IP address, I need to use "goflexsatellite" and that gets me in. The interface is smooth and once you get use to the slightly different operating practice its probably better that the Seagate Media App.
Incidentally I can upload from the Video, Picture and Documents tab but not from the Music or Folder View tabs. The document upload is the handiest one. All I would need to complete this handy tool would a means of deleting redundant files over WiFi after uploading. I'll need to play with it a bit more to appreciate what capabilities we now have. Again Rich many thanks, your digging around has helped a lot.
