Reviews From google play store

Alhough not consistently, this is the ONLY app that has allowed me to write without issues in the external SD card with Android 6.X. Yup, it needs root, and sometimes it doesn't launch properly... but whe it launches it's a smooth run FTP experience not even paid options match.

Very limited - poorly constructed. I purchased this app being advised that I could upload data via FTP to the /mnt/extsd/ folder. This actually works but seems to struggle with transfers from windows 8 windows explorer. It tends to freeze while calculating the time to transfer, and when it does work, the text files i transfer seem to be cut off at exactly 4kb. Most importantly, I am very dissapointed that there is no way to set a password for the user account so i have found it to be completely useless. This is a very limited application, with no options to keep alive on restart. A word to the wise: Consider alternatives. Not acceptable.

Great This app is amazing and works like a charm on my Samsung Galaxy S7Edge. I advise those rated 1 star to read and understand the use of ftp server first.

Works I use it with Filezilla and it works great. Maybe lacks options, but nothing I would need anyway. I am happy that this app exists because it can serve files from root directory with no ads.

Basic and enought Install, run and that's all. Just same as other user: add password setting :-)

Works great but only once. If you turn off the server it doesn't work again until you reboot the phone.

The only FTP server that enable me to delete file from computer. Very good. Although all tutorials about RFTP has been removed from the internet. It does still work very well.

Works with Filezilla. Couldn't get it to work with 2 other clients.

Simple but works as it should. Few clicks and commands on my NAS and I can make FULL Android backup thanks to this app.

Genius. It help me a lots

Very clean, nicely reliable.

Did not work

Ugh 😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠 Doesn't even work.i can't even start the app

Where is settings ? Port, root dir ?

Clean and simple, works like a charm.

great but will be better with password

fake app

Worked Great on my Xoom I have a rooted Xoom Wifi with ICS. This software has worked both with WiFi and USB transfers, great app, easy to use. Note @Dev, please be more explicit in the Market about requiring some extra files to be downloaded from your website. I have no issues with this, but many could find this confusing.

Excellent app, does what it says!! :) I will reccomend this to a lot of my friends, they wanted something just like this. And this totally works. I love how easy it is, only if you read and figure it out. then its pretty basic. i tried to COPY all my system files to my computer to keep, i was doing some work w/ them to try something out and it gave me an error of copying all of them, but when I copied 4 at a time, it worked. I would love it, if you could make it where you could password protect the FTP server, that would be great. Thanks a lot DEV for you hard work, and awesome app. worth $4.99. This is the only app on market, that I have found that will actually copy system files of the phone to computer, no other ones will that i found. i couldn't do it w/ Root Explorer or any others. thanks again :) ~Rooted Samsung Exhibit II 4g

The Only One That Got Access to My Actual SD Card This works. I have a rooted Captivate running Cyanogen 7. For long time, I've been wanted to transfer files wirelessly. I tried maybe 6 other apps before this Root FTP Server, but none of them could access my external SD Card which is where I store my mp3s and videos. This app however, go in effortlessly and is worth every penny.
