I upgraded from Filebrowser to FB pro, totally worth it

I was very happy using Filebrowser with a paid subscription. I noticed that FileBrowser Pro offered me the ability to locally sync files to my iPhone and iPad so that would have access, even if it didn't have a network connection. I decided to upgrade for nominal fee.

You can set up a full synchronization, or use it as a back up. It works flawlessly and it's fast. I then noticed the additional capability of writing custom scripts that can do a wide variety of tasks. These can be scheduled or you can run them manually. A couple of examples are provided. No programming language required. You simply pick which files and folders you want action taken on, select from the various actions, and it's done. You can do this across multiple clouds.

The Pro version also offers quite a few more connectivity options than the standard product.

I have to say one of the things that impresses me the most about stratospherix, the company that makes these products, is their support. If I report a bug, I almost always get a response within 24 hours. If there is a workaround, they will provide it. The fixes usually come out with additional enhancements on a regular basis.

If you need an app that allows you to comprehensively manage files and folders, while never having to leave that app, you definitely want FileBrowser Pro. From my experience as a retired IT pro, it really is a best in class product for iOS.

Love the Connectivity to PC

I had bought a flash drive to store all my procreate files on, however I quickly learned that plugging a usb c drive into the drive causes quite a few files to get corrupted. I was really upset that I seemed to lose drawings that I valued, so I checked out this app based on a recommendation from a Reddit post. At first I wondered if I should get this or the other version, but I figured I'd get this for the increased functionality.

Rather than connect my flash drive directly to my iPad, I am now able to connect it to my PC, connect to my iPad via the servers, and upload folders that way. The drag and drop is nice and the multiwindow is very helpful in saving files. At first I had troubles learning how to share PC folders and learn how to undo the read-only issue, but now that it works I'm really grateful that I can still back up my procreate pictures. Since I don't have a Mac for the apple ecosystem, this is doublely helpful.

Great app

Had the normal one for tears and planned to get the pro one but never did until a few days ago and it definitely worth the price. Amazing functionalities.
The app is the best browser app ive come across since for 10+ years. Its a great feeling to know you have a tool that can help you in every situation. Also the price is nothing compared to some other apps like Documents which has a monthly price of this app but cant compete with FileBrowser Pro.

But most important feature is an amazing support team that explain every issue as simple as they can for you to understand and help you in every way. The support team is famous for being fast and thorough. I have made some support teams angry at me for being a novice but stratospherix team take their time explaining everything which is the best support experience ive had ever.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. FileBrowser Pro supports SFTP connections over SSH but doesn't have a terminal interface.
