3.0 out of 5 stars Free version has ads, a security risk January 30, 2012
By Snavvy

The program works well without problems. However, FTP is a bandwidth intensive endeavour, and constant ads not only interrupt the downloads but also pose a security risk. I uninstalled this and got the free (and ad-free) AndFTP (or the open source SwiFTP) instead, which both work nearly identically (but no ads). Both AndFTP and SwiFTP can be downloaded directly from the developer, without using an App market, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well and easy to use November 18, 2012

Downloaded this when I was vacationing in Mexico, only had my Kindle Fire, and had to update a website. Very easy to use; worked perfectly. The harder problem to solve was finding a text editor that recognized html files. I found Amoeba Text Editor, which I also wholeheartedly recommend.

While I normally use scp to do one off transfers on a system, sftp via this little app is great for the Archos 43 that I have. It handles keys, saved passwords, or prompted passwords. After a brief look, I got the Pro version.

Oh, and kudos for the foresight to provide import/export so you don't lose all your setup when you go from the free to the paid app, etc.

I have this app on my phone and my kindle because FTP transfer is so much easier than bluetooth. My router came with an ftp site so I can access recorded shows at work for the drive home

I've used this app a number of times since installing it. It's easy to use, and doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. I definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome but needs improvement
This application will be the closest FTP client you will find on a stocked Kindle Fire. I am only giving it four starts because I am unhappy on how there is no text editors.

Excellent app. Just what I needed, I was running low on space and needed to move some movies from my Kindle to my Seagate Home network drive. This did the job quickly.
