    I'd like to be able to sign in to two FTP servers and send files between them without having to pull them all to my phone first. A lot of times this is called FXP on desktop clients. Since there are already FTP apps, I would think this would be pretty easy to write in?

    You and a friend have computers and are savvy enough to have FTP servers running. You are out on the town, or at dinner, or whatever, and talking about some video or picture or program. Wouldn't it be great to be able to pull out your phone, connect to your home FTP server, and upload it straight to his FTP server so it's there when he gets home?

    Is there an app that does FXP?

    Cool idea. But couldn't you just remote desktop to your server at home, then FTP to his? Just a thought.

    Well, for one that wouldn't be nearly as simple (lots more steps), would be a lot more reliant on the phone's connection speed, and none of the current apps really care for playing nice with Windows 7 Professional as far as RDP or VNC go.
