mFTP is a native FTP client application made for Windows 8, with basic features you will find from a normal desktop version of FTP client. It will be a good useful app especially for Windows RT tablets, since none of the desktop version of FTP client will work on RT.
Frankly, it’s a very basic FTP app with very limited features. You can connect to a FTP server via default or customized port, and you can browser through the files and folders on the FTP server. You can also download any folders or files to your local computer as well as uploading to the remote server. But it lacks some of the advanced features like view and update the files on the fly.
mFTP now only scores a slightly over 2 stars on Windows Store. It doesn’t really mean the app is very bad. As matter of fact, even though it’s quite basic it still works and can get work done. It just needs more features to be added. It has the potential to be a good Windows 8 app.
FTP client isn’t a hot type of tool developers like to spend time on. That’s why you don’t have many choices finding one on Windows store. Actually, if you are looking for a good working FTP client for your Windows RT machine, the chances are mFTP might be your only choice. Personally, I am quite disappoint seeing not many developers are interesting in developing a traditional utility like FTP client for Windows 8.
