I was able to use the web interface to upload, download, and (after ticking the right box) remove files without trouble. I was also able to mount read only on MacOS. However, I was not able to mount read/write, I presume due to a lack for LOCK support. If the app supported LOCK I'd be all in; as it is, it's mostly useless for my purposes.

Hi, Windows and Mac OS first upload an empty file and then overwrite it, so you need to allow overwriting as well. Locking is supported in a very simple form just to support mounting from Windows. I've heard from some people that it works Mac OS too.

For quite some time, I have been looking for a reliable way to locally host a website on my phone so I can have a self-authored home page for my browser containing the links I use on a regular basis without resorting to shortcuts and/or book marks. All of the other apps I have tried are geared towards hosting on a LAN or the web itself as opposed to being limited to just my phone. This app finally allows me to host my home page just to myself. Yippee!

Crashes, authentication does not work I paid for the PRO version, but have not been happy with it's reliability. Enabling https and authentication allows files to be browsed but download fails. 'Confirm each connection' also does nothing, leaving the client waiting forever. Also, it crashed during 500MB download from the device. Works for unsecure download of small files, but I'm uninstalling this app.
