Absolutely great app! You can select multiple folders for a single user, a feature other apps don't have. Only minor gripes: (i) the app doesn't support landscape orientation, and (ii) the app doesn't handle system-wide font scaling well; a bunch of text gets cut off.

Was working great but when I upgraded it to the latest version. I could no longer transfer files. I uninstalled it and reinstalled. I could then transfer files but found that it was not listing files correctly. Only recently transferred files are would be listed partially. Some file types are shown but not others. Listing files works fine when using SSH Server by this company but sadly the transfer speed is about half of what I get when using this app. Hopefully these issues will be fixed.

Perfect FTP server for Android. Within seconds one may configure an user account, and what is the most significant thing: EXACT ACCESS TO STORAGE. I've tried several servers, but here choosing between internal storage or external SD Card causes no problems. Finally I may quickly download photos and upload music to my device, without using scripts in Termux!
