AndFTP -- A very clever FTP client

Authored by: Jay O. — Jul 30, 2011

After reviewing all those games a few days ago I am back with a more techie app for all you clever Android fans out there. AndFTP is a FTP, FTPS, SCP, SFTP client software for Android devices (SCP is available in the pro version only). It has three main features: it manages FTP Servers and it has a FTP file browser as well as a device file browser. More details about what else it can do for you below.

Features & Use

Oh AndFTP, you handy little thing you.


It can manage several FTP configurations. It also provides a local file browser, an FTP file browser as well as options to upload, download and sync with support. What else? It lets users choose, rename and delete files, update permissions as well as create folders (folder synchronization is another pro version feature). It supports both FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and SFTP (SSH’s safe File Transfer Protocol).


AndFTP supports: FileZilla settings import, MLSD command and Dual SSH authentication.


Once a FTP server has been set up transferring data is a cinch—it’s fast and easy. Files that are to be transferred are highlighted and then sent.


Bottom line:

AndFTP is a useful app for all IT professionals as well as anyone who has an FTP account (bloggers, web developers, etc.)
 

Screen & Controls

AndFTP has a good UI and the touchscreen accuracy is great. Lists are a bit small, but I would say that most smartphone users and/or FTP client software users are used to squinting a bit every now and then.

Speed & Stability

AndFTP has been tested thoroughly by several of the AndroidPIT team members, and we all agree that performs pretty well. Its performance overall is quite impressive.

Price/Performance Ratio

AndFTP can be downloaded for free from the Android Market.
