    Does anyone know of an app that will let me manage files on a network (SMB) share (locally, over wi-fi).

    I'd like to be able to view and move/copy/delete files on the share by way of an iPad interface. I don't need to save the file to my iPad.

    Stratospherix FileBrowser looks like it comes close, but I don't think it lets me move/copy files from folder to folder on the network share.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If nothing like this exists, the easiest thing I can think of would be to run an FTP server on the destination machine and just FTP from the iPad.

    Remote File Viewer should theoretically be able to do that. It's currently free, but the reviews are quite bad due to frequent crashes. The last update came out two days ago, so it may be less prone to crash by now.

    Just bought file browser I was able to connect to a work server from VPN, and then copy from the server to my home pc from the iPad

    Good 3 bucks invested

    I cannot move items from the iPad to a pc unless I transfer it from a pc first
