    I just use AndFTP, with SSH. Works fine for local and remote file system navigation. I use it to move files android<->various linux machines at least weekly.

      It is good that such app works for you, but from what I’ve seen AndFTP is only available in Google Play store, and with bundled ad in the free version and paid otherwise. In comparison, LocalSend is none of that, and it is available on FDriod as well. LocalSend is also FOSS from protocol to the app through and through, and although SSH technology itself is secure, the security of the client depends. These are all the reasons to answer your question of “I need something more than scp”. I use SSHFS myself too in the case of file backup, but also LocalSend for different scenarios such as “I need this video to be sent to my computer ASAP”. If you are not convinced, feel free to overlook the project, that doesn’t mean the app has zero use case
