Cannot download audio files after iOS update

This is a fantastic app but after an update of iOS I am getting following error while trying to download- the resource could not be loaded because app transport security policy requires the use of secure connection. I even tried to download from https: website but still getting same error. iOS is 13.5


Nice storage solution. Please update.

Phone drive gives me a convenient way to carry files with me. The desktop Wifi transfer mode has been reliable. The page providing the upload/download functionality could be more informative as to the status of transfer(i.e. realtime progress updates, transfer speed, etc). Overall a very nice wireless storage solution on my phone


Does not work after update.

Keeps crashing.

This issue has been fixed now in the most recent update. However PhoneDriveLite still crashes when is called form the other apps (copy to Phone Drive)

The issue has been fixed in the most recent update.


Good But Not Great

A lot of ads, and I wasn’t able to save my files to the camera roll on my phone. I transferred the files from my laptop to my phone which is good, but there’s no point in having them in PhoneDriveLite if I can’t save it to my camera roll. Also, when you listen to audio it cuts in and out. It’ll play around 30 seconds then be silent for a while, and as it’s silent the audio is running (like it’s not paused) but it just doesn’t play.


Awsome app

Use it with the document app and you can actually download files to your phone and transfer them to phone drive app to send them to your pc via wifi even if your wifi doesn't have internet access. Cool way to bypass slow or no connection.



Moved my mp3 onto my phone but it won’t play a full track unless you keep the phone open & unlocked. Other than that everything else is decent. I could complain about the slow download speed but this is the free version after all, you get what you paid for. Many other features seem like things that don’t need a fix just so much as a touch up from a couple updates.


This app needs work

I have synced problems now file transfer stop working. This update need more work. I like old update in 2020. This new update, using new iPhone 14 Pro Max and IPhone 13 Pro Max. Brand new phones PhoneDriveLite was working great until I got this update.


Good app

This is a reliable app. It opens and stores files and allows you to load files onto your phone much like a usb drive. It lost the fifth star because it doesn't offer the opportunity to enter the password on password-protected files. It just doesn't open them. It does everything else I need it to, though. Thanks!


At last!

Finally a way to ADD files easily to my iPhone from my PC. I know you can do this with a sync feature in iTunes but you cannot delete any sync files unless you are connected to the PC. PhoneDriveLite fixes that.


Disappointed with the recent update and changes

So I have been using PhoneDriveLite for years and I’m very disappointed with the changes now I can’t even play my music on my playlist as my playlist is now a document before you could set music and play them on a plate and now I can’t even do that now now I have to go from folder to folder quite ridiculous in a terrible change.


User friendly with quality sound

I use phone drive app a lot because it is simple to download and transfer music/ recordings. Excellent.


File names

Kind of hokey acting when trying to change a file name. Takes about 20 tries...and then sometimes it still won’t change it. Irritating 😠


Great app does exactly what I need

I love PhoneDriveLite. I use it often to access files that I have downloaded. It is very easy to download files from my PC to my iPad using PhoneDriveLite.


Paid 3 times for same service

I paid 3 times for updates to full version.
Each time i bought new iphone and login via icloud account, i am able to download and active all my apps, only this drive go to free version and i need again pay for upgrade. I found file browser a paid app which is 20 times better. At least never ask for money once you paid!!!


Wonderful app

I love PhoneDriveLite. It opens Excel, Word, pdf, mp3, mp4 files and more. I take my documents, photos and music everywhere. It uses WiFi to transfer files from pc to phone so I don’t need iTunes anymore.


Paid for full version stills can only do 10

What’s up with this. My purchase went through. But it still says I only have trial version. Must be something simple. But I’m not getting it. Please help. First 10 went flawless. So service is good. I even restarted both devices. And uploads always fail. HELP


All Rounder Data Storage

When it comes to the business of digital storage, you have set the pace!


Very useful

PhoneDriveLite is extremely useful for transferring photos and videos between your computer and your phone



I had the free app before and it worked perfectly fine. Now that I purchased PhoneDriveLite it doesn’t work. I’ve tried several times using transferring photos using Wi-Fi between my iPhone and laptop- it doesn’t work period! My rating may change but don’t waste your money until they have the kinks worked out.


Very impressed

Usually I'm used to apps popping up ads while using or they are glitched with bugs but this works simple and easy, no problems!
