FileBrowser ($4.99) is like having Windows Explorer or Mac Finder on your iPad/iPhone to access network folders on Macs, Windows, Linux, and NAS drives.
AT HOME: Stream movies and music over WiFi direct to your iPad/iPhone. View a slideshow of photos from your computer. No need to sync or copy to your iPad/iPhone. Access your NAS without needing to turn your computer on.
AT WORK: Browse file servers over the Internet using the iPad/iPhone’s built in VPN. In the board room or on site, retrieve and view documents from company servers.
Unlike other file sharing apps, with FileBrowser everything is done from your iPad/iPhone instead of sitting at your computer and uploading to it.
View every document type that iOS supports. Pass files to and from other apps – for example, store email attachments in FileBrowser for later use with an editor app.
FileBrowser requires no additional software on the target computer/network drive – just check that file sharing is enabled on your computer and connect.
Use an iPad/iPhone-compatible VPN or SMB port-forwarding to connect to your file server or workstation via 3G or from the Internet.
