Cloud Commander icon

Documents By Readdle FTPHere’s my review about the best file manager and FTP apps for iPhone and iPad. iPhone and iPad file manager and FTP apps are essentials tools to manage your private Cloud / private iCloud in your home network. Even more, home network access via VPN is getting more important. Since my last review on the best file manager and FTP apps for iPhone and iPad, dated April 14, 2013, a lot happened: File Explorer was updated to version 4 and a new file manager, called Cloud Commander, was published. Last, but not least, Documents 5 by Readdle‘s release on February 27, 2014, is a big step forward to make the file manager app to a kind of ‘control center’, called ‘Add-Ons’, for certain other Readdle apps. Up to now, this ‘control center’ is only available on iPad.

Update: iStorage 2 HD 2.4: Universal File Manager and FTP App for iPhone and iPad
iStorage iconIn contrast to that I wrote some days ago, FTP on the Go isn’t still the best app for managing my private iCloud / cloud to me. Yesterday I found something better: iStorage! There are two apps, one for the iPad (iStorage HD, version 2.0) and one for the iPhone (iStorage for Cloud, version 1.5.13, version 2.0 coming in August this year). What impressed me was that I’m now able to manage my NAS together with Dropbox, box (not yet iStorage for iPhone) and WebDav-Access in one single app.

FTP On The Go icon

20120520-215718.jpgLast week I faced the problem with ‘Open in’ documents like pdf-files with my favorite app FTP On The Go. Some minutes before I installed some HP printer apps and after that I wanted to open a pdf-file with FTP On The Go, but this app was missed in the ‘Open in’ select menu!

As you may know in this menu up to 10 apps could be shown. Why exactly ten, nobody knows…
