Synology will sell you network attached storage, and it will give you no shortage of Android apps to access it with. Recently the company has updated several of those mobile bits of software with support for DiskStation Manager 6.0 Beta. This is the latest version of the operating system you can install to one of those aforementioned NAS boxes, which you're welcome to download if you have the right hardware.

Updates are available for DS Cloud, DS Download, DS Finder, DS File, DS Note, and DS Video. Cameron provided an overview of most of these apps when he went hands-on with the DS415+.

While you're using DSM 6.0, you might as well enable the additional security Synology has provided for your account. All of these apps can now use two-factor authentication.

There are more additions than that. Plenty more. So here are changelogs and download links.
