Critique

  • It keeps crashing
  • Some of the icons are empty so when u click on them they open a black transparent screen with no way to exit. As show in the image below
  • Phone call interrupts the connection. So if you get a call while connected to the ftp server, it does not stay connected
  • Only uploads photos. For a mobile ftp client, it should be able to upload more than pictures. There is music, videos and documents that it should be capable of uploading
  • It lacks all the major key components E.G resume support, audit logs, text encoding and passive mode
  • It lacks security. You can only connect through FTP. There is no way to connect through SFTP or FTPS which means transferring through the client is not secure.
