Looks good needs access to files in the files app

It looks good but without files in the files app support it hurts it I don’t know of a way to access it locally

Basically useless as it stands

It’s functional, as in it does start a valid SMB server that is visible to my Windows XP computer. But as other reviewers have mentioned the app immediately limits your connection to almost dialup speeds (512kbps) so it will take several hours to transfer a short video clip for example.

Even if that were acceptable, to make matters worse, you cannot switch to another app or lock the screen, which granted is an Apple limitation but combined with the apps ridiculous bandwidth limit it makes this version useless and basically nothing but an ad to the premium version. Oh and the app has a ton of annoying ads too, of course.

I concur with previous reviewer that Apple should not allow this kind of deceitful practices on their App Store. And to the developers, if you’re confident in your app just make it a paid one and leave it at that. If it’s truly worth $2.99, customers will come and pay that. I, however, will not. Not after you wasted my time with this nonsense. You are directly losing potential customers due to your greed.

Does what iOS can’t

I transfer photos and videos from my phone to my Windows 10 PC as part of my job. The smb client in iOS is pretty wonky. It takes at least three tries to get connected and it won’t connect at all to my NAS. This app is solid. The smb connection is reliable and it connects to my NAS. It integrates with the Files App nicely. Plus you can create unlimited shared folders! Not to mention the smb server, which is awesome. All my shared folders show up on my PC. Amazing!
