Very Handy Tool
I've been using this app for about a year and find it to be very handy for moving files around on my LAN. Their are lots of tools, lots of apps to do this and I use several but for simply getting a few files from one location to another, Remote File Manager works best for me. Setup was quick and straight forward (about 12 devices) and use is intuitive (if I can ever keep "upload" and "download" straight). The only nits I've discovered involved transfers to and from a couple of Epson Workforce AIOs and an apparent file size issue with the viewer.
All around, I'm a happy camper.
The best app since iCloud - or even better!
Absolutely essential app for storing, saving, managing, organizing, and especially transferring stuff on and between my iPads and desktop. On the desktop, a thumb-drive is all you need. BUT - on the iPads, there's no way to save or back up or transfer anything except by handing it over to the Cloud - or, by using an app like *Remote Files* to transfer them to a file-hub device and a regular thumb-drive! And, along the way, to save them in the app's built-in file system, for "further study". An indispensable app!!
This app has been great for browsing through folders of images, but lately it has started to behave strangely when scrolling through a folder where all the thumbnails are not yet built. It looks like it’s stretching the entries and jumping around. Basically, it doesn’t scroll smoothly any more, until all the thumbnails are built.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
