Broken and Abandoned


Like many others have mentioned, this app was great a few years ago. I fired it up last night though and it was unable to connect to any SFTP servers. I think the reason I switched from FileBrowser to this in 2011 or so is because the former did not support SFTP (or maybe SSH key authentication, I don't remember which exactly). Now that SFTP is broken I have no reason to use it anymore. Deleted. I'm now using FileBrowser again, which is still being developed and pretty great. No SSH key authentication, but I've created some workarounds for that.

I think it's a shame that Apple allows developers to sell apps like this that no longer function correctly.

No Support, No updates… Stay away!!!!!

Used to be a great app, and still is if you are running iOS 5 and your Mac is Running OS X 10.7 or lower
The ONLY feature that separated this app from the rest was the ability to create a SMB share from the iOS device, that would show automatically in finder via Bonjour, unfortunately this feature is broken in Yosemite due to changes in the SMB protocol.
The support is zero, the documentation is nonexistent and it was last updated more than one year ago.
Do you still want it??

Files connect fixed


Latest update fixes screen problems with IPhone 4. Looks great.
