FileBrowser - Access files on remote computers
By Stratospherix Ltd
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
FileBrowser is like having Windows Explorer or Mac Finder on your iPad/iPhone to access network folders on Macs, Windows, Linux, and NAS drives and now Box, Dropbox and SkyDrive are also supported
AT HOME: Stream movies and music over WiFi direct to your iPad/iPhone. View a slideshow of photos from your computer. No need to sync or copy to your iPad/iPhone. Access your NAS without needing to turn your computer on.
AT WORK: Browse file servers over the Internet using the iPad/iPhone's built in VPN. Retrieve and view documents from company servers. Edit and update files on the server (requires additional doc editing app such as Pages). Choose where to keep your data and control how files are shared. Migrate to Cloud storage at a pace that suits you.
All browsing and file transfers are performed on the iPad/iPhone so you don’t need to sit at your computer to upload files to FileBrowser.
View every document type that iOS supports. Pass files to and from other apps - for example, store email attachments in FileBrowser for later use with an editor app.
FileBrowser requires no additional software on the target computer/network drive.
Connect to your servers over the Internet (3G or WiFi) with appropriate software/router configuration. See support page on www.stratospherix.com

FileBrowser requires iOS 5.1 or later.

FileBrowser is an essential app but it's not magic and it doesn't bypass network security. It will not be able to access your files on your home computer from a remote location over the Internet without your computer being accessible FROM the Internet and SMB file sharing being enabled.
■ Connects to Windows 2000 and above, MacOS from 10.5, most variants of Linux, and most (but not all) NAS drives. Try our free FileBrowserLite app to test connectivity.
■ Does NOT support AFP or FTP.
■ To stream AVIs with DIVX or XVID codecs requires a third party app that is able to play these formats.

Very useful tool that works well
I have a NAS server at home with all sorts of files on it. This app lets me quickly and effortlessly browse all these files. Best of all it does a preview of photos and will launch video files just by clicking on them and can view pdf, word, or txt documents just fine. It can even automatically do a slide show of a folder full of photos. The app never crashes and caches login info, so it's always there when you need it. If I could give this app six stars I would.
I have iPad 4 with 64 GB storage and about 50 apps installed so far.
The File Browser and the DejaOffice are the only apps I keep on Quick Access ribbon with Settings and Safari. All other apps are in their folders.
File Browser does what it's promised to do and does it very well. My only wish is that developer would add support for more file type (especially MultiMedia) and more Cloud-based storage support.
Still, it's a great tool and a must have for any serious iPad user.
For access to my local NAS and Dropbox, this app is great. I use it constantly to move files between the NAS and my iPad or iPhone (copying movie files before extended travel), and as a better file management tool than the Dropbox app (copying and moving to different folders within Dropbox and between Dropbox and iOS device or the sever).
This all enables a bunch of workflows that would otherwise require a computer or significantly more work.
