Android Nougat has an internal file manager but unfortunately it is buried deep in the Settings which make it not very easy to access.
This application makes it possible to access both the File Manager and the Storage Manager from the Quick Settings and your launcher home screen.
If like me you think the stock file manager is more than enough just give it a try because it will make your life easier. Explorage is lightweight and free with no ads nor in-app-purchase.
- Quick Settings Tiles
- Optional Application Launcher Icon
- Quick Access To Storage And File Manager
- Launcher Home Screen Shortcut (from Settings)
For obvious reasons, this application is only compatible withe Nexus and Pixel devices running Android (7+) Nougat or later.
There may be a few bugs here and there.
Please report them to me instead of down rating the application.
