Ratings and Reviews
An essential addition
Having bought Affinity Photo, I needed a way to get it to operate properly with my NAS. FileBrowser proved to be the answer. Although the ‘Save’ function on the main screen uses an API that’s only available to iCloud, I can use the space on my SMB shares through the ‘Save a Copy’ command in the image’s document menu. Filebrowser’s plug-in for the native Files app makes this possible, and I haven’t found any other file manager app that offers this functionality. This alone is worth the price of the program.
As a bonus, it includes a browser for RAW files that’s far superior to that included in Files or Photos, and I can send a RAW straight to Affinity through the share sheet.
If you have plenty of disk space on your local network and want to move large files on and off your iPad without sending them through the internet to iCloud, then this is an essential purchase.
The missing part of your iPad
This is the best app I have ever used. I am an app developer myself and this is just so well done. It’s the file browser the iPad Pro deserves. Local, network, copy paste, zipping files, drag and drop for iOS 11 as soon as it came out. Just incredible. I am hoping by writing this more people buy it as I hope this is just the beginning of pro tools on the iPad. I can now edit and manage audio files and pictures on the go. This wouldn’t be possible using the Apple files app. Ok I’ll stop now, you can tell I like it.
Brilliant product and brilliant support
I have been using filebrowser for many years and it keeps getting better. I can access files on all my cloud drives and local network. I use it to watch videos I have saved on my local network drive and the speed of loading and starting is much faster than any other product I have tried. This morning I reported a problem to their tech team and received a response within an hour. Keep up the good work.
