Used to be good. But the ads have gotten so intrusive that it's impossible to use. These are FULL VIDEO ADS AFTER ALMOST EVERY ACTION. Cut? Ad. Switch folder? Ad. Paste? Oh yeah, that's a long ad. Seems that buying pro version doesn't fix that, if you want ads gone, it looks like you must PAY FOR A SUBSCRIPTION TO REMOVE ADS. Developers should be paid for their work. But this went too far and I don't trust paying will prevent worse in the future. Sad it must go, but I just don't trust it.

Previously this was by far my favorite file browser. However, when I tried using it today, I was getting a twenty second modal ad every other time I changed folder, which also interrupted my ability to do things like move files between folders. At this point, the "free" version of the app is really just a trial to see if you like the UI. Expect to pay if you want usable software.

Its actually a great app. Only one so far with per folder specific viewing options but too many annoyi g bugs. 1. selecting a file to open often goes directly to whatsap share unless using open with option. 2. most of the time, app opens showing no folders at all. So you have to force close and reopen app to see folders 3. Files often fail to open in external apps and You have to come back and select again for file to open in externals apps. 4. While copying files, progress bar is always inaccurate and usually shows no progress even when copying is going on.
