I have my external NAS hard drive set up to share with ftp so with the app I was able to import images easily onto my iPad for editing. When viewing large images it did tend to take a while to go from image to image, even giving an error message on occasion. Unfortunately you can't use the app to access your music or videos stored on your iOS device via your computer. You can add images from your photo albums to your folders but only one at a time. If you have two iOS devices, you can use the app on both to share between them.
