iFile is the best utility application that you can use to manage the iOS files. Using iFile we can edit, move, delete any iOS files and for the moment there is no other application to offer a similar functionality, at least not in Cydia.
Because iFile is so popular, the developer of the application is constantly working on improving it and in the video below we can see a demo of the new FTP client that will be implemented in the 1.7 version of iFile.
The iFile developer says that the 1.7 iFile version will also include other new features besides a new FTP client.
Basically, very soon we are going to be able to access FTP servers using the new client and we are going to be able to easily manipulate everything we find there.
iFile is available in Cydia however the application is not free. However, before deciding if you should purchase iFile you can try it out for a few days.
