    Hey all.

    I've been messing around with my Droid and I stumbled upon the Files app which lets you add a server. Is this for FTP servers or like a local computer connected to Wi-Fi? I have an FTP server I'd like to connect but it says it cannot be reached, even though I'm 100% sure the details are correct.

    And another thing: what is the best File Manager/Explorer app? I found like a dozen of them and honestly, I don't feel like installing them all to find out which one is the best.

    Thanks :)

    The Files app is only for locally available servers. If you are using wifi at home and the ftp server is connected to the same network you should be able to access it.

    Another vote for Astro here as well..

    Thanks. That's a real shame -- it would an excellent default app if it could access an FTP server.
