Importing Files - file extension gets cut off & unable to rename

Great app! The UI feels clean and intuitive on both the phone and browser and everything just works beautifully.
However transferring files with long file names is kinda buggy at the moment. There seems to be an arbitrary filename character limit which cuts off the file extension after anywhere from 30 to 50 characters. Attempting to directly rename the file in the AirDroid file browser results in a pop-up window that prompts "A file name with the same name already exists" and you'd need to use another file browser to rename the file along with the file extension.

Importing multiple audio files like radio show/podcast mp3s with different dates is a bigger problem because subsequent files after the first are appended with "-copy" at the end and overwrite the previous copy.

I'm using Chrome with Win 7 and XP.

Hi cozfest,
We looked into transferring of files with long filenames and found no error. Would you mind providing us the filename of the file which you tried? Please note that after imported only the first 30-50 characters of the file name is shown in the files list.

When importing files, if a file with a same name already exists in destination, subsequent files will be automatically renamed with "-copy" after the previous one and will NOT overwrite the previous copy.
