    Few weeks old into the Windows Phone 8 world and am really surprised that there are only 2 FTP apps in the store (MyFTP and FTP On The Go).

    Has anyone used either of these and if so, would you recommend either?
    Do they work as intended. Upload / Downloading of files?
    I'm not really worried about editing a website from my phone, which sounds like what FTP On The Go is designed to do ( just a file editor that can access a file on a file server?) more so than actual file uploading / downloading.?

    Any thoughts? TIA

    Sorry, I don't have much of a use of ftp anymore.

    What are you wanting to do? Why do you need ftp?

    As about FTP Client. myFTP should do the trick. I don't have any FTP Server to access, so I really cannot recommend which one is better.

    WP8 has "Pocket FTP Server". Not a client, but a server on your phone. With Image library/Local Store/ SkyDrive and Dropbox support. It acts like an replacement for File Explorer. That is sad we have no real access to file system. Hope MS will change it in future.

    there are some http web based "ftp" file server options available, instead of using an ftp server, that would serve this purpose. Easy File Sharing Web Server comes to mind.

    I would like to add my disappointment at the lack of FTP Clients for WP8. Very disappointing but hopefully someone is able to put a decent one together at some point.

    I am currently using myftp and it is a good start. I like I can download and stream music. However, it would be much better if I could not only download videos but play them with something like moliplayer or the soon to be released vlc.

    I am also looking for this kind of App. An FTP App that can manage pictures through WiFi since there is no File Manager in Windows Phone.
