Accessing qfile shared folder from any android app?

Post by sweetman »

Hello all,
I can easily access all my files using Qfile on my android device.
But how can I access all my files (on shared folder) from any other app on android?
I have an app to read ebooks but I can't access qfile shared folders.
I need to download the content on my phone and then I can read it.
But this is a waste of space and time.
Is there a way to access qfile shared folders using other apps phone-wide?
TIA
tony

Get a different app.
On android, I use FX explorer, map a network drive to an existing share, then associate the file type to whatever app I need.
Keep in mind some apps do require local access to the file (don't work with shares), but that is an app issue, not a QNAP issue.
