Access Filezilla Using Android

Can anyone suggest a good app for accessing files that are on our work server.  We use Filezilla, so from a Windows PC we can type the FTP address in WINDOWS EXPLORER to get access.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would recommend Total Commander.   It is a great file app with built in FTP, WebDAV, Local Network etc.

I have been using the desktop version for years.  It automatically gets installed on every computer I work on and the Android version is pretty similar.  Just remember to also install the "Plugins" to get the additional functions like FTP and other network access.

Two ideas:

(1) I'll put a +1 on Carl's recommendation of Total Commander:

I've been using it on my Windows systems for about 20 years and on my Android devices since it was first released (more than three years ago). Fantastic software on both platforms!

(2) FX File Explorer:

As much as I love Total Commander, I installed FX File Explorer on my Android phone specifically for its strong networking support, which requires its FX Plus add-on. With that add-on, you get these network/cloud features:

* Windows networking (SMB)
* FTP (including secure FTP-S and FTP-ES)
* SSH FTP (Secure Shell FTP; password and public key auth)
* WebDAV (see help for using WebDAV with OwnCloud)
* Cloud Storage: Google Drive (incl. Google Docs), Dropbox, SugarSync, Box (, and SkyDrive (SkyDrive requires Android 2.2 or later)
* Stream video and audio media files from SMB, FTP, SSH, Google Drive, Dropbox, SugarSync, Box, and SkyDrive to media player applications
* Browse local network for Windows (SMB) shares
* Find FTP and SSH FTP local network shares using multicast DNS (mDNS) service discovery (Bonjour/Zeroconf/Avahi)
* Encrypted keyring (used to avoid entering sensitive passwords in public while not allowing access in event of device theft)
* Download and convert Google Drive / Google Docs files into Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OpenDocument, PDF, and other formats
As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with either of the companies mentioned in this post and no financial interest in them whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe
