I've done a lot of googling and I can't find an app other than ES file explorer (terrible for what I want to do) that will allow me to view and delete photos sitting on a network computer.


I just want to sit in my chair with tablet in hand...flick through and view/sort/delete photos sitting on a network pc.


I've finally resorted to asking for help in finding one.


Please... Is there one out there? Or is there a way to add a network folder to Gallery (on the tablet)?

You can try Solid Explorer, it allows you to view, add and delete networked files.


You'll have to add the shared folder in the settings, and add the user/pass for the shared folder/drive, but it works just fine for my NAS deleting files. It also doesn't have the spammy BS that ES does.

Another vote for Solid Explorer. ES has just gone to utter dodgy crap.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.
