Samba/CIFS Android client for Nexus 7

With USB cable, the efficient way about transfer data is to connect your Android to computer. If you have Windows PC running Samba/CIFS file share server, you can mount SMB share on your device over WiFi network.

AndSMB (samba client) by LYSESOFT is the best Samba client for Android, which let you access shared folders hosted on Windows or Samba servers over Wifi/3G. After configured and mounted the shared things with authentication, the file browser allows you to rename, delete, create folders, open, download and upload local and remote files, even synchronize folders.

I have tested AndSMB on my Nexus 7. When I copy or sync movie files from SMB to the tablet via WiFi, I note that the speed is very slow and it randomly fails. It is not very good but works.
