I downloaded and installed AntTek on an Asus Tablet. Also installed the SMB add-in and it all works. Scanning the network didn’t work as expected – I had to manually configure the connection, after which it worked beautifully. Drag and Drop is great – I was able copy files from the server to my tablet with ease. Recommend this app as one to try – it’s definatley up there with the best of the file managers.
