About the new permission "SuperUser":
This permission is now requested to make Total Commander work better on rooted devices. It tells the SuperUser app that Total Commander suports root functions. It has no effect if your device is not rooted. Root functions allow Total Commander to write to system folders like /system or /data. You will be warned before anything is written if the partition is write protected.

Functionality wise it's a 5. But user interface it's a 3. For example, turn your phone sideways and you can get a split screen. This has limited use as there is no drag and drop feature. Searching a drive for a file name is hit or miss. Mostly miss. It's a very crowded user view. Note to Total Commander: most people using your app are going to be ok without all of the bloated fonts and pictograms and graphics that crowd the screens. Use simple fonts, skip icons or graphics and streamline the UI.

USE THIS APP! I think TCmd is very good. I've been using it for years. It is incredibly robust but not entirely inuitive, in my experience. The help file could be improved by better search matching. It seems to currently be a simple text search. I discovered 'drag and drop' by mistake; it did not appear when I searched for 'move file'. Adding images to help will also be useful for users. Also, including a quick link to Help as a '?' icon on the top nav would be a time saving shortcut.

Great app for file transfer from Android to PC via wifi. Does way more than most of us need. Small learning curve to understand syntax/icons. Suggest a few videos to help newbies get started with the app. Update: Like the fact that it maintains file date/time integrity. As I mentioned before a video or other help feature to clarify icon function would be helpful.
