Ratings and Reviews
Two years later: still the best, universally useful tool, and! 1. They've now cleaned up most of the glitches in the file dates; and 2. You can now move and up/download entire subdirectories. It's even easier and hence even more useful!
Excellent app, works like a charm via WiFi with my external RAV FileHub power/hub gizmo. I can make backups, transfer data files, photos, etc in and out of my iPad, to and from a thumb drive, SD card, etc mounted on the RAV Filehub. Unbeatable way to back up and exchange files quick and easy, to and from my iPad. No need to fool around with another computer and iTunes and all that jazz. The thumb drive shows up as another "file" on the list-window in the Remote Files app, and I can just upload or download anything between the iPad and the thumbdrive. Fantastically useful!!
Works Perfectly With TIME CAPSULE & Other NAS
Works perfectly with Time Capsule and all other NAS. This is the ONLY app I have found to work with Time Capsule…. I could not be happier with this app as both a way to connect to my Time Capsule, but also as a file manager and media player. I have been using this app for years now and absolutely love it. Highly recommended, especially if you want to transfer files to and from your iPad or iPhone to your Time Capsule WIRELESSLY to archive videos and photos to free up space on mobile devices. The Dev is also timely responsive...thanks Jane!
Very Handy Tool
I've been using this app for about a year and find it to be very handy for moving files around on my LAN. Their are lots of tools, lots of apps to do this and I use several but for simply getting a few files from one location to another, Remote File Manager works best for me. Setup was quick and straight forward (about 12 devices) and use is intuitive (if I can ever keep "upload" and "download" straight). The only nits I've discovered involved transfers to and from a couple of Epson Workforce AIOs and an apparent file size issue with the viewer.
All around, I'm a happy camper.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
