Unusable on S2 You cannot access root directory to go to external sd card. Also buggy, cannot open folders in transfer mode. Works flawlessly on my Nexus 7 but useless on Galaxy phones.

No access to SD Card in S3 App seems to be hard coded to only allow access the local path /sdcard, which on many modern devices is actually internal memory, not the actual SD Card. This means there seems to be no way to transfer anything too or from an S3, and presumably other devices, to/from the MiniStation unless you only use the internal storage. :-/ Oh yes, and clicking on a mp3 on the MiniStation just causes the program to exit, nothing plays. Movies seem to be fine though, but they use a proper app. Please use allow the use of the music player of our choice, rather than your internal one.
