My Most-Used App

I'll admit, I was annoyed a couple of months ago when they kept bombarding me with a rating nag, but even with that little snag noted, I cannot deny that this is the most-used app that I have, and indeed I launch probably 30% of my actions from FileBrowser. This is a quality, polished piece of software, and I'm grateful that there are companies like Stratospherix to bring desktop usability to mobile devices.

Makes the iPad much more useful

App does what it claims and makes the iPad much more useful for me in a business setting. I was easily able to connect to our LAN. and SharePoint sites to open PDF files, pass them to PDF Epert or Bluebeam Revu, mark them up with the Apple Pencil and save them back to their original location. This is exactly the workflow I was hoping to achieve with the iPad Pro. FB makes it possible.

AD Auth No Problem

This works fine accessing file shares requiring Active Directory/Kerberos authentication. It’s a very capable application with plenty of features, and definitely the one to buy when you need, for example, to access a file share at work over a VPN using your AD credentials, hint hint. I wish it supported NFS, but that’s neither a complaint nor a feature request.
