Baldur132 - More than an FTP manager
While the FTP manager functionalities are excellent in their own right, what I have found after using this app for a year ist that it fills a much needed gap in the iOS operating system. iOS has only recently added a pseudo-file manager that relies on their own iCloud service to properly work. In addition, a lot of file types/codecs are just not supported (for example: WebM, EPUB).
This app provides the ability to actually move and use files between services. As an example: Imagine you receive a WebM video from someone on Discord, that you would like to watch before uploading it to a file sharing website. With default iOS, this is not possible, as WebM video is not supported. Transferring the video into the iOS file manager does work, as well as uploading it to a website, but these processes are (in my opinion) much less transparent than using FTP manager.
The actual SFTP/FTP functionality works perfectly as expected, have never had an issue with it. All in all, this app has provided me with much more functionality than I ever initially expected. Solid recommendation.
E-BookReader - Best FTP Client I have found
Since the reviews for the competitor, “FTP Client Pro,” indicated it was superior to all of its competitors, I purchased it. But after comparing it with this app (FTPManager Pro), this app proves to be, hands down, far more intuitive than “FTP Client Pro.” Plus it has greater functionality and it cost less.
As a software developer, I find FTPManager Pro to be very intuitive and full-featured. While I continue to use FileZilla on my Windows devices, this app has the feel and ease of use on my iPad that I am accustomed to with FileZilla. Plus, it provides a WiFi connection to other devices as well as access to nearby devices on the same local network. It is clearly worth far more than the asking price (that’s not a suggestion, just an observation). I highly recommend it.
Zzyzx Oh - Best Utility at Its Price when you need SFTP
I am reviewing v7.0.4 of FTPManager Pro. My need is to be able to view and move files quickly across a series of single-board computers, such as various versions of the Raspberry Pi.
I read several reviews from years ago that were very critical of the product but it seemed to have the best balance of rating and review count so I reviewed the developer website. When I saw that it provided the iPad with its own FTP Server, I decided to check the price. I was surprised it was so affordable and gave it a try.
I am more than impressed. To create consistent host profiles is a snail, and I was surfing across a half-dozen RPi computers in minutes. Connection time seems sub-second and anything longer and I know I made a mistake.
The defaults are intelligently set, such as hide hidden files, but easy to switch.
I do wish I could keep the FTP Server running when I switched apps but that probably isn’t a bad idea to terminate it. It just means I cannot test it as easily.
All said, the best utility app investment in a long time. I am not affiliated with this developer nor did I receive compensation for this review.
ΜΟΛΩΝΛΑΒΕ - Little workhorse app
I’m a web/app developer (not associated with this app) and I use this app all the time for maintaining webpages and scripts while on the go. The keyboard is particularly great, as it provides the ability to tab/indent easily (among other things, but I use tab a lot) without messing around with key combinations. Take a look at the top row of their keyboard to see what I mean, other ftp apps I’ve looked at don’t have that. There’s a couple of only minor things i’d change about the app, but overall it’s a workhorse utility. There are seriously very few apps that I use as much as I use this app, it’s a great purchase!
JustHelp - Great App, suggestion for improvement
Finally a way to stream my music from a portable usb drive to my iPad without an internet connection. I have a TP-Link AC750 Wireless Travel Router (TL-WR902AC v1) which has a usb port to attach a portable usb drive. This FTPManager Pro app connects to the usb drive through the router without an internet connection (great for in the car, camping, etc.). The app has a player that has continuous play option for all music files in the same folder (has shuffle option). It works great. I would give it 5 Stars if the app would search all folders in the drive and then allow shuffle play of all songs on the drive regardless of folder structure. To workaround I have to move all the mp3 files into the same folder. Other than that...good job!
Mr. RAZ - Unresolved Bug Present and Reported
This is not a bad app, it actually works very good as an FTP Client and Editor.
However there is a bug that has been reported to the developer and is yet to be resolved.
The issue is present when opening a document and selecting Text or Browser view.
Once "Text" mode is selected, the choice remains active after the document is closed.
The result is that any subsequent opening of the document will Not prompt for Text or Browser view and will default to Text.
This can be quite frustrating when switching between Text ( Editing ) and Browser to view results of edits.
There is a workaround that entails closing the document in question, then going back one level to another folder or file and then returning to the desired document which then will again prompt for Text or Browser.
The developer/s have been informed of this issue and promised to have it resolved.
There was also mention of having the ability to switch from Text to Browser view, right from an open document.
Resolving this issue and or adding the ability to switch from within an open document would certainly warrant a Five (5) Star review.
Webberto - Works perfectly for quick html, etc edits
There are a couple really good “editors” for iPad, but it can be a pain for quick edits. This app connects very easily to sftp and AWS Lightsail instances and lets me very easily find my file and edit that file on the fly. Interface is stupid easy to use. Adding my pass key file was very easy using the Music app file transfer. Overall, just crazy easy to use for those very quick edits. Haven’t really used this for anything else. 2.99 is a steal, I’d pay a lot more.
Ohio guy! - Went from excellent to poor
I have used this app for several years. It was used to view home security camera footage that resided in my home FTP server. About 1 - 2 months ago after an upgrade, the app will fail to sequentially open up video clips periodically (1 in every 5 video clips) and hangs. Time to dump this app and look in the store for something else.
A.Kinng - This is by far the best FTP client for iPhone.
I’m a developer, paid apps like Panic Transmit or FE file manager didn’t worked out. Ftp management is a part of my daily routine, it’s more than a need. The only app that works great, open enough to achieve any task and never crashed or failed is this beast, right here. The King of FTP managers. Hat’s off.
Tallskys - Excellent Utility
Great app, been mainly sending songs (mp3) recorded on PC to my iPhone for review. Like the retro vinyl image used for the mp3 files. Easy to use..thanks!
Still loving this app...if you’re looking for an FTP manager with all the options and security features, you won’t go wrong with this one. Easy to move/transfer entire folders...nice!
Scottbomb72 - Fantastic, worth every penny
I was looking for something that allowed me to stream music directly from dropbox without stopping after each song. I got a lot more than I bargained for with this bad boy, especially being able to connect my own servers with SFTP. Pretty cool, thank you for making this.
Beachboy1962 - Used to be good/poor support
I used this app for a long time with no problems. It used to be great until recently it stopped seeing any of my folders in iCloud, where they’ve always been.
Something has changed and support has been no help.
GrapsterJunior - FTPManager Pro works great
After buying FTPManager Pro and using it for about a week, I am happy that this application is available in the App Store. It takes iTunes aside and provides an SFTP connection that is uncensored and reliable. I would recommend this app to other DIY users, for sure.
Chief BowWow - Overall A Decent FTP Client
Overall this is a decent FTP client, but needs some fine tuning of several UX bugs (small stuff but I can live with them). It has decent Dropbox and iCloud support, however it lacks support for Google Drive; hence the 3 stars.
0thgen - great app; but might as well use their other one
they have another app “FE Explorer” that has essentially the same functionality plus lots of extra. Probably worth using that instead :)
Jpiszcz1 - Best SFTP client I’ve found!
Hands down the best client I’ve found supports previews of text, images and can play media files as well!
Rurdy2b - Access Denied: 530
Ever since I updated my iPhone to OS v12.0 the FTP Manager Pro app has been intermittently not allowing access for accounts that have access. This is very frustrating and it has been hindering that aspect of my company. No one has changed any credentials. Will there be a fix? If so, when will the next version of this app be made available? Once this issue is resolved, I will change my rating, if iTunes allows me to do so.
GnnBroadcasting - One star why connected but nothing is seen in my ssh
How can I review what I do not see my website, files, data, but say I am connected ssh. Where is my data, files open folder empty, took about 1 hour before finally it worked connected. But never get anything but spinning wheel whereas I am assuming is downloading my data on brands new iPad Pro 12.9 inch of 512 gigs storage space. So what am I missing here?
Cambron - Can’t upload files
Can’t upload files.
I bought pro version. Connected to my ftp server. Wanted to basically copy and paste an image file to another directory. I duplicated the image file. But there is no option to move the file. So I downloaded the file, went to the directory that I wanted the file to be but there is no upload option.
YanceMaster - Best FTP APP
Do not waste your time trying out the others, simply put this app is great, and integrates well with many, many other apps.
Nick O'Name 98765 - Works well but UI is not very intuitive
Should be easier to choose files to send. Should remember destination folders.
Radiofonakias - The best!
I have to give you guys credit!! This is a great FTP. Client! I am I audio and video production and this app work great uploading/downloading and listening/viewing the files !!! Keep it up!!!
Fredyonnet - Fav app period
This is the app I use the most. Makes every other file sharing app obsolete. Quick, clean and easy. Better than dropbox imo
Pressurized Firkin - Great FTP client for iOS
I use FileZilla for all my FTP needs when on my computers. FTPManager Pro is as easy to use on iOS and it has been a welcome addition to my iPhone and iPad. I highly recommend this app.
Partsace - It works!
I’ve tried a bunch of FTP programs for my iPhone/iPad and FTPManager works! Easy to transfer pictures and files from your iPhone to server.
Mister Raze - Excellent!
Love it and been using it for many years with no problems!
MalahovKS - One of the top s/ftp-clients with Photos library backup feature
Recently buy this app and use it as a backup app for my Photos library.
It would be great to see further development of backup capabilities such as:
- backup versioning ;
- encrypt backup feature;
- backup in background with ability to specify time and date (every day at 12pm for example);
It may be in app purchase features.
Aynsleyswims - File upload
Could we get a way to save files such as from photos to the FTP servers?
The.Big.O - Good app, missing key feature
If you're in a WiFi network, this app works beautifully. Connecting to an ftp site using cell data just doesn't work though. That is a key reason I bought the app.
If they would fix the ability to connect via my phone provider network, this would be a 5 star review.
Dragonbase - Very easy to use
Great product for uploading phones pictures to your personal cloud
Andrew.Gauld - Download options disappointing
Would be bette rig i could download more than one file at a time.
123JSB - Works for me
When we travel, I take only the IPad and and use FTP to update our travelogue website. Give it a try.
TSADEV - Probably The Best Thing I've Paid For On The App Store!
This Is The Best Thing BC It Fits My Needs!
If I Need To Upload, Edit, or Move A File On My Server I Can Go On The App While I'm At School & Do That!
Jmack1234 - Easy
Easy to use recognized my hard drive on my Arris Cable modem USB port right off the bat. So easy to transfer files.
WEDWAY - Buggy
I like the app in general. It’s easy to us and fairly intuitive. But it’s buggy. Can’t transfer more one file at a time. Each time I transfer a file, I have to close the app and then restart to transfer another file.
Blk07ShelbyGT - Used to work
Worked awesome forever. Most recent update crashes the app every time you open a file and go to edit the file or use the search feature. I’ll change my review once it’s fixed.
Gav_99 - Great app for media sharing..
Until your phone screen turns off. Super annoyed that the FTP servers don’t stay active if the app is open in the background.
Dudeman3333333 - Decent
It is a decent app. It does what I need it to do and it is cheap. Definitely room for improvement but I have no regrets with the purchase.
iPad 4th generation on iOS 10.
Usbreaks - FTP
Simple & to the point when it comes to files.
Bill Lynch Jr - FTP pro is excellent
This is an excellent program. I use it for accessing a usb drive on the internet for photographs. It works great
Mcgeo52 - Don’t waste your time or money
This app is a bad joke.
I needed an app to take files out of Auria, the digital audio workstation app, and load them up to an online folder. Should be stupid simple. Not with this app. It cannot find the files in the Auria folder.
I contacted the developer and was told this is not a bug, that I had to move my files outside of the Auria folder. Why? Just because this app is a bad joke? Really?
On the other hand, FTP Client Pro does a great job.
As the title says, don’t waste your time or money.
ClintCarter14 - Used to be feature rich, now it’s been stripped.
You can’t access anything beyond FTP. This app used to connect to my SBC’s with no issues. Now I have to install FTP Servers to use this app. It’s ridiculous. Avoid this dev and find a different app.
Zolly99 - Excellent
Great time saving tool.
I’ve been using it for years and it’s my goto iphone “putty”
Apple TV - iPhone 3G - Amazing SFTP Client for my RPi
This SFTP client is perfect for file transfer directly from raspberry pi to iphone and offcause other ftp tasks👍😊😎
MarcThomas on business - This app HYJACKS other file associations
I use this to upload files to a company drive and the app has taken over some file types that it cant open.
Works for TRANFER but HYJACks the file extension.
DWG files are a common file that is associated with AutoCad
FTP Manager Pro has “claimed all DWG files” as FTP manager Pro files. The FTPmanage icon is now on all DWG files.
Not appropriate and now the association is making it difficult to open or find files on my cloud drive WRONG logo and FTP manager will not open this file type.
Atoomic - Does not work with sftp
This does not work for me, I wasted my money purchasing this app… useless
go away and purchase a different one, does not work with nas…
I can connect with any other software
TMartin1 - FTP Pro - File Explorer ?
An excellent File Transfer Protocol app that blends with some other apps nicely. For the FTP Pro app (WAN) to directly access the File Explorer app (LAN) would be great.
Gdxilla - doesnt work with dropbox
Can't transfer files from dropbox to the connected server. Must download to icloud or my ipad then transfer. Too many steps. If you fix this or explain, I will update my review.
Swiftouch - Needs a little refining. Save before exit would be nice
Love this app. Especially for the shortcut characters at the top.
It needs 2 things.
-Save on exit. Too many times Ive exited the page instead of saving first.
Qwsddrrfffv - Good but only works on WiFi
I don’t know if it’s a bug or not, but it doesn’t work on cellular. You get a Network error if you are cellular. Too bad.
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
1J4CFW1W3 - Fantastic
Spent all day finding something that could serve my needs efficiently promised myself if this works I’d leave a review did everything I needed was worth paying for, thanks for the hard work!!
Ortsinim - Very Useful
Handy and very functional.
Arsene Lupen - Flexible and easy to use
It really did worth to purchase the non-free version. This is a very handy app.
Dee J Bee - It just works
Yep. It just works. Brilliant.
Darth Jon - Ftp - Top Drawer
Use it all the time on the iPhone, comes in so handy, I use Joomla and this enables me to see and edit files quickly and easily.
There isn't a search function for the files content (like find color:red;) so I just copy and past it all into my daedalus app and go from there.
I did buy iEditor pro but that doesn't have a search feature either (you can search for files, but not the content) Now that's crazy!
It is not ftp's job to be a text editor so I am cool with that.
ftp manager - Nice!
Tqk1997 - .
When I pay for an app I expect it to work, I can’t even upload
Knobby007 - Please ignore
IShrewd - Terrific simple FTP app
Of all the FTP apps I've tried, this one is so far the best. Simple to set up and use. Gives ability to emergency maintain your FTP/website while on the road.
Great feature is that transfers can occur in the background, including while your iDevice is asleep.
Adding a few features would make this even more powerful, like displaying ownership and permissions of server files and directories.
Damien teeeeee - Served me well
With the 4+ years I've been doing programming directly to servers, this app has made it possible. There are many Alternatives yet this has come to #1 in my eyes.
Millymeister - Great app. Developer support awesome.
Updated to v2.0.1 and now my FTP downloads abort after 2mb. Any file less than 2mb works, but nothing above. Contacted developer and issue identified quickly, same day and fix is being written. The Support from the developer is brilliant.
Kyran Gostelow - Great App for Web Devs
This is a great app for web developers that want to edit their websites while away from their computers, definitely worth the cost.
The only downside is the lack of an auto save function.
Banshamike - Excellent value
Works extremely well. The instructions provided are concise and easy to follow. Very happy customer !!
DesiRe EffecTz - Money Well spent!!
Well worth the money! If your a web designer like me then this is for you and it's very handy!
Olly102344 - Easy to use. Works well.
Black Duck - Excellent program
Works really well and easy to use.
Chris2kari - Good client
Integrates nicely with iOS. Frequent updates. Reliable. Worth the money.

Works a treat !
Oliodoliva - Tg
Works well, no problems .
Rex From Darwin - Good
Does what it said it would do.
Ubique1964 - Save your money

The Gigantesque - Real good FTP client
Not only this FTP client does everything it should do , I have setup 6 x servers connections on it and everything works great;
Also , as a value added, it is a very good :
- music player ; with cool features not even found in ITunes
Also playing in background
- picture viewer; with diaporama
I am super happy with it
Disooqi - Fall in love with this app
This the best and most efficient FTP software I have ever used in my entire life. I am a software engineer and I can say with trust that people who worked in this app had passion to work.
Delaurend - Great App
Best app for transferring files to and from iPad.
Dabonz1965 - Great FTP Application
Question to any when configure for FTP I’m using explicit FTP over TLS but it’s not prompting me for Certification Authentication I’m using SFTP which shows it’s that I’m Authenticated but FTP doesn’t show a lock like SFTP does
Syltre57 - Excellent
Facile d utilisation, on ne s'en passe plus.
ADPatt - Changing ports doesn’t work
Custom port set to 5000 but app still tries 21.
Jay112222 - Good
Mynicknameistaken123 - 5.1 update no longer plays avi files
Don’t upgrade if you need to play avi files.
Ricardo Canada - The best uploader for my website!
Mizmellyjelly - Wasted my money
It was working fine at first but now I can’t access any of my servers. I’ve waited for an update that would hopefully fix this but it’s been months now and it still doesn’t work. Waste of money.
Vinnybarbarini - YouTube artist
I have no problems whatsoever with this app. I use it on my iPhone as well as my iPad and have been able to keep on top of site edits on the go. Nothing feels more rewarding than being able to advance your work in brief down periods where otherwise you would have simply done nothing. You are in full control with this app.
Xrmarcis - Great little app
I use several Linux servers and this app works great to move copy rename files as well as upload all from my phone.
Dakwonhee - File transfer error!
I am using iphone 5c..I cannot download my 1.4 mb avi files from mt ftp server....file transfer error always...
Santina Studio - Nice and quick
Great for ftp picture files, gives you a thumbnail of the image. Quick and easy user interface. Best one for my use. Highly recomend.
BCHMJ - Great app
Excellent for making quick updates to websites from anywhere.
Blazemonkey - A good FTP/SFTP File Manager
It works great.
I'm able to rename & move large files around the server without transferring them through the iDevice. Also shows hidden (.)files on the server.
It includes a built in text editor that makes it easy to modify config files on the server.
Does everything that I need it too.
10/10 Would buy again!
RunningMan84 - Good. Could be better.
When you go back to the main screen after being connected to a server it should ask if you want to end your FTP session rather just ending it.
Other than that, transferring files is simple and fast. Support for SFTP is a bonus for the corporate environment.
SergeCouture - Use as my backup solution while travelling
I use it to connect to my server to save my pictures when I'm away for a long time.
Easy to use, efficient & clear.
T. Orlando - FTP Manager
I'm super happy with it!
No bugs what so ever, i acces my ftp from my phone at anytime with no problem.
If you have a bit of experience with compuers and ftp server accessing you are going to love it..
Sergag57 - Good app.
If only it can read external hard drive I would have give it 5 stars.
El esdrasgc - Rating
Great App easy to use and very complete for my needs
Mywakohana - Great app. So simple to use.
I use this app to upload files on my website. It's so quick and easy. I previously used FileZilla on my Mac but this app is much quicker because it has less steps and I can do it on the go since I run it on my iPad.
MMathab - quick remote access to you computer files
Try the free version to see if you like. I use this instead of itune to move files to my phone, download mp3 and read comics. You can batch download and manage folders very quickly. Read files online or offline. I'm impressed.
Alltwin - Great program
I like it
One feature I would like to ask for
"Search" within and PDF file and multiple bookmarks if possible
TheWhite147 - Bugs and crashes!
Lot of bugs and crashes! Do not buy this.
Waosao - Useful
I found it useful for my purpose.
Needs more instruction in the help file
OCI100 - Cannot delete
Great App but can't delete files on server. I sent error logs and after few weeks still no fix. Problem should be addressed since we did pay for the App. Hopefully soon!
Clay B - Blank Screen on Slideshow
When I start slideshow to play my pictures, the screen remains blank (black). Waste of money.
