Quick and easy setup, works right away. Only problem i'm having is changing the root directory and it not clearly indicating the effect in the app. Update: problem seemed to be on the pc client side--closing the client and reconnecting updates the change in directory on connect. I do have some periodic timeout issues if i don't leave the app open and on screen. Great app otherwise.

App is great for viewing phone files on PC without wires. I’m having a problem with file properties though. The date and time of files (created, modified, etc) differ between a wired connection to my phone and the FTP connection. For file viewing or drag and drop operations, this isn’t an issue. But using the FTP server for wireless backups between my phone and PC isn’t working because the backup program wants to overwrite all files on phone due to the time offsets. Any help is appreciated.

Good if you don't have/feel like using a cable to transfer files, but in my experience, it will randomly disconnect you from your client. I noticed when that happens, it killed my WiFi connection (for clarification, my WiFi doesn't turn off, the status changes to no internet), saying there was no internet, even though my connection was fine before. My WiFi works fine from where I use it, with a very good signal and minimal noise. Edited slightly for clarification.

The Pro version is same as the free version except that the pro version does not show ads. Regarding the connection loss and wifi issues ... the app does not turn on or turn off WiFi. If the WiFi connection is lost (due to environment/noise or distance to router) the FTP connection will be lost. It is not the other way around.
