haven\'t had any issues at works

Faster than using the Wifi https transfer apps I have and faster than using bluetooth to transfer files. 2 👍👍 up!

Easy connection to my PC from my phone (local network).

Perfect FTP server for Android. Within seconds one may configure a 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!

FTP functions fine even behind a firewall and is stable. Haven\'t tried FTPS yet. Reasonable footprint. Like multiple-user feature. More settings than other FTP apps I considered. Eliminates cable for file transfer between devices. On PC, access phone files either through browser or FileZilla client. Developer appears helpful.

It was a little tricky to figure out setting up on my Nvidia Shield but works great once it\'s configured. Plugging a KB/Mouse into my Shield made it much easier.

This has to be the best FTP server for Android without question. Great job.

Best FTP server I\'ve used on Android. Recommended.
