TL;DR - Get it, it's simple, it works. Consider buying the pro version.‏‏ ‏‏‎This is a nice little FTP app. I've never had any issues with it so far. Seems pretty stable! :: :: (My only gripe is that it's not open source, but that's my personal opinion.) :: :: I've transferred tons of files to and from my OG Xbox, NAS, routers, Windows & Linux desktops, you name it. Other apps I tried in the past had issues with authentication or non standard port numbers, and this one doesn't.

This has to be one of the best tools out there - it's lightweight, as simple as it can get and it creates a solution for something you may have had no idea you'd want until you had it. No more connecting cables, no more random disconnects - just start and go - absolutely stellar and thank you!

This has to be one of the most convenient apps out there. I find myself downloading a lot of files on my phone, and I'm too lazy to dig out a cable to transfer them to my PC. Now I can pop open an app like FileZilla on my computer and pull those files off my phone without any hassle. Plus, there doesn't seem to be a cap on speed, so there are times files transfer faster wirelessly than they do over USB.
