Ratings and Reviews
Great file manager!
I have been using this app for years. Recently I belatedly found that I could also access the files on my PC. So right in front of me I have access to my network server, my PC, and my Dropbox files. It is interesting that photos on the iPad show up as actual files within FileBrowser that can be treated as any other file instead of having to go to the more limiting iOS Photos app. FB also has a built in server which allows other devices to exchange files with you independent of platform, such as a PC. Outstanding attention to functionality!
Here is where I have been very surprised. Apple introduced their Files app recently, iOS 11. It is their first attempt at a file manager. It is limited. What is interesting is that when users want to open a file from within an app like Pages, their new file manager opens where the file can be selected. FileBrowser shows up as a selection. If you make that selection, when FileBrowser is running, you have access to all the locations for files that you have when you are in that this FB app. The locations are displayed as directories. This includes files on the PC, online storage like Dropbox, and your network servers. This is quite an enhancement for the Apples Files app. So I can open a file on my PC from within Pages or other iOS apps. This is very nice indeed!
Solves most of the file sharing problems between iOS and others
This is my go-to app for moving files between my iOS devices, PC, or cloud services. You can customize the configuration for any type of device you need to access - WiFi flash drives (Like SanDisk Connect) or other computers & drives accessible on your LAN. No need to start a background service running on the PC or in File Browser first either. Media files play or stream fine in the app and can be easily cast or to Chromecast, FireTV, AppleTV, or straight to most modern Smart TV's. I think the one feature I use the most is the "Open In - File Browser" function from Safari on my iPad. Whenever I'm at a website on my iPad where I need to download a binary file, or save a PDF document, I can immediately save it to my PC straight from my iPad without keeping a local copy. This is good for saving things like statements, forms, photos that you will need to work on or store on you PC or a network drive. Just "Open In" File Browser and direct the file anywhere you need to save it to. You can still keep a local copy if you wish to, but it's not necessary. Anyway, I keep the File Browser app on my home screen since I use it daily. Each update brings improvement and so far the authors have not broken anything in the process like many of app developers do (Google...).
Do not d/l any other but this one!
This is the best file manager to manage LOCAL files. I connect to my pc or Mac from my local personal home network. Was able to copy folder past onto iPad. From there had access to the folder.
Was able to adjust size of thumb nails of photos in the folder via pinch jester. I tried several other programs that just don’t work. This program is a MUST for file management. This program saved me in Vietnam when I didn’t have access to laptop. I had to borrow someone else’s laptop copy files professional photographers photos from usb drive to laptop then access that laptop via this program get the folders copied to my iPad. Then wipe the photos from the borrowed laptop return laptop 20 min later.
This program is a MUST have. Thank you SO much for writing it.
