Reliable, lots of options (sftp etc). Cumbersome at first, efficient and safe then.


I love this app.

If you know what a dual-panal file manager is, you probably will too.

Lets you specify and external editor for the 'edit' command, but the internal one is good enough for basic text manipulation or viewing.

As of this posting, it doesn't support FTPS, unfortunately, but it's still being actively developed, so hopefully...


It supports sftp via a free plugin

That's correct!.. It's got plugins and for Google Drive, too; with which it's possible to upload folders, btw. :)
