Now compatible with iOS 10 and the latest iPhones and iPads (the previous version was built for iOS 3 believe it or not)!

FTP Browser is currently the only iPhone, iPod, or iPad ftp web browser available. Simple and easy to use, it looks and feels just like Safari while allowing you to browse any ftp server. From viewing pictures and streaming music, to emailing attachments and even saving files directly to your iPhone, it provides you with all the tools you need to get to the files you want.

* full-screen portrait or landscape viewing (tap the toolbar)
* auto full-screen in landscape mode
* streamlined, intelligent page rendering and formatting
* remembers your browsing path at logout or closing the app, making it easy to return right to where you left off
* ftp webpages are cached for much faster page loading and OFFLINE browsing
* just like firefox, you have sortable columns by file and directory, date, or size by ascending or descending order
* save any file to the iPhone itself to be viewed or emailed at a later time (up to ~160 MB for the 3GS)
* use your iPhone, iPod, or iPad like a USB drive - all files saved to your iPhone can be quickly and easily copied off onto your computer via iTunes file sharing
* real-time file downloading progress bar, download rate, and time remaining
* downloaded files page where you can open, email, rename, or delete downloaded files
* optimized downloaded file page for long file listings
* favorite ftp sites page for quick and easy access to and switching between frequently visited ftp sites
* included support for LAN addresses in the favorites page
* settings page for full customization! You can now set exactly how you want your browser to appear changing font size, type, colors, and more!
* quick-scroll sidebar for long lists
* path bar to keep track of your location, clicking it returns you to the root folder
* STREAM any music you want right to your iPhone (supported formats: mp3, wav)
* view iPhone compatible VIDEO (MPEG-4) from the downloaded files page (up to ~160 MB in size for the 3GS)
* view any picture in a full-screen photo viewer (supported formats: jpg, gif, tif, bmp, png, etc.)
* view any other iPhone compatible file right in the browser (text, html, pdf, doc, xls, numbers, pages, powerpoint, keynote, etc.)
* view .docx, .xslx, and any other Office 2007 formats from the downloaded file page
* email any file as an attachment
* nice quiet system sounds
* securely connect to any ftp server without disclosing confidential login information anywhere in your mobile safari browser

If you want a simple, easy, and secure way to surf any ftp server, FTP Browser is the app for you.

A good way to ensure this app will work with your server is to try connecting with Firefox. If Firefox can connect, then FTP Browser should. Check my FAQ support for more info.

Customer Reviews

Great ftp app


I don't know what some other reviewers are talking about. I have used this app with various different FTP servers without any problems. I'm sure there were some issues with version 1.x, but version 2.0 is working great for me. I don't know of many other apps that have had such rapid and incredible updates in such a short amount of time. It is very apparent the developer is listening to suggestions and requests and acting on it. I love the new features in 2.0! Keep it coming!

Works great for me


Cool FTP browser. You can log into any FTP site, and instantly browse the files, downloading them, saving them to the phone, emailing them, etc. You can even stream audio files.

It would be helpful for those that say it's incompatible with certain FTP servers to give more details about the servers they are trying to log into. Maybe the developer could then do something about it. All the servers that I use work just fine.

I look forward to seeing updates and new features.

Very close


Connects to my NAS FTP well. Views office files and gives the option to email save or open. Even streams MP3 files from the server via 3G and buffers. The only thing I would like to see is a mini thumbnail enhancement while viewing pictures. All I see are files. Other FTP programs have this option. Also a file upload would be great. Not good at all if you are looking to use it for web site updating. Great for surfing files
