WAPFTP – Mobile FTP File Manager
My first big project was this online file manager designed for mobile phones in 2005. Even though it’s hard to imagine how one could access the internet, not to mention work with files or text from a small screen, it was considered innovative. This file manager was used by the continuously rising number of mobile users on the Russian speaking web who were interested not only in surfing but also creating mobile sites, yet didn’t have a personal computer.
It has been hosted as a stand-alone service but also installed by some hosting providers of that time. The file manager had a full functionality to edit and manage files: compressing multiple files into an archive (ZIP or TAR), extracting archives, editing text files with different layouts for simple text and a special highlighted layout for HTML and CSS, even modifying ID tags of MP3 files.
