Are there any free iOS applications that let us browse LAN devices, so we could access files from devices in same network.

I use ES File Explorer to do the same in Android phone but I didn't find any free application on iOS. Most of the file explorer for android mobiles include this functionality.

Any such free app?

    There are tons of such apps in the App Store. Maybe you can add some details about specific functionality/protocols you are looking for or list the apps you've tried but didn't like?

  • I tried few of the applications like File Explorer, but it required paid/ full version to access those functionality. As I mentioned I only want to access shared files from the devices on same network (LAN)

ES File Explorer is now available for free on iOS and it support LAN Wifi transfers:

I was able to upload from an Android phone (Chrome) to iOS (ES File Explorer).


iFileExplorer may be what you need. It is free on App store. I am using it.
