Best of the best

Interface, security, and options are what make this app a standout in its class. I bought this, and three other similar apps at the same time to try and solve my storage mess. After using all four, I can say this without a doubt is the most superior file browsing app on the market. I’ve tied in my iCloud, NAS, and four other cloud providers, which was kept me so much more organized than I’ve ever been before. Not to mention the time and multiple apps I’ve eliminated. The detail that went into every aspect of the app, the updates, and the developers website is truly exceptional. I even reached out to them via twitter, and the response was great. Can’t recommend this enough, thanks!

Life saver!

This app solves so many problems!

• Moving files around your phone from any app or folder when no other onboard means is available. (No need to hop files from app to app to get them where you need them.)

•The ability to create folders and organize a variety of file formats very easily.

• CORRECTLY reflecting contents of network drives and moving files between those and your phone.

• Making any file, from any app or drive, available to an iPhone flash drive. (Example - saving recorded GPS tracks to a flash drive, from the Gaia app, for Search Management to upload to their Search and Rescue software at base.)

• Eliminating the need for that stupid iTunes app.

But one has to ask... if FileBrowser Biz does all this so incredibly seamlessly, then why does Apple make it so hard/impossible to move anything around an iPhone and/or drives?!!

Generally works great on my iPhone, but occasionally crashes. iOS 13.3 currently.

We are quite impressed with FileBrowser for business. We are using it to connect to our wireless LAN and via VPN out in the field to allow our users to access certain Windows file shares on a server. It allows us to precisely control what the users can see and do by tweaking the settings and permissions and them locking them in with an admin password. For the features that we are currently using, it is working perfectly. Tech support is email based and is the best I've ever seen, hands-down. If you have an issue or question they will stay with you until that issue is resolved.
