X-plore allows you to see inside of your Android device. And also outside.

This is a dual-pane explorer, there are two folders shown at same time, and common operation such as copying files are done from one pane to another.
And X-plore shows folder hierarchy in a tree view for clear orientation and fast switching to other location.

You may explore internals of the device, and if you're power user and have your device rooted, you can make changes to system data - backup files, remove unwanted applications, etc.

If you're standard user, you may choose to hide internal memory from view and be sure not to mess with system.
You can comfortably see contents of mass memories on your device, or possibly attached USB memory stick.

Simple app manager allows to see, run, copy, share, uninstall and further explore installed applications.

WiFi file sharing
Access files on your Android device from other Android devices over WiFi.

Access from a PC web browser
Manage files on your Android device from your PC.

Access to FTP and FTPS (secure FTP) servers is supported.
Multiple servers may be configured.

X-plore can display shared folders on other computers in LAN.

X-plore can access various web storage "Cloud" servers, and access their files.
You need to have account in supported web service, then you can access your files stored online through X-plore.

Supported is also SSH File Transfer (SFTP) and Terminal shell emulator.

X-plore contains music player that can play music tracks from any available location.

With Vault function, you can encrypt sensitive files, even by your fingerprint.

Main operations are related to managing files and folders - viewing, copying, moving, deleting, compressing to Zip, extracting, renaming, sharing, and more.

SQLite database viewer
X-plore can show SQLite database files (those with .db extension) as expandable list of tables, each table containing list of rows and columns with database entries.

Main interaction is done by touch screen, clicking on folders or files to open files, or long-click to open context menu which contains options which can be done on particular clicked item, or multiple selected items.
Multi-selection allows to do operation on more files at once.

Opening file may mean to use one of built-in viewer for most popular file types: images, audio, video and text.
Or you may configure X-plore to use system application for opening files, in which case system-predefined application that can open particular file is launched.

Archives (currently supported are Zip, Rar and 7zip) are displayed as other folders.

I have been using this app for a while with good results. Suddenly, it's infested with ads. I understand the need for money, and I would have been happy to pay for it under normal circumstances. But the sudden and jarring appearance of both banner ads and interstitial ads - without warning - has completely killed it for me. It's not like they eased into it. It's gone from no ads, to a horrible experience. I'll find another app, even if it means giving my money to someone else.

Wow. Blown away. At first I thought it was just a slight improvement. Quickly realized it was very simple and fast to customize the app to my exact needs and change them for diff circumstances. Insanely intuitive, powerful, and customizable. A must have for anyone who spends any amount of time working with files. My one slight issue is it would be so nice to be able to turn off move/delete confirmation. But can't do that in native android anyways. Huge time and life saver! Thanks!

Slow file transfer speed. When copying files with the same name, it doesn't tell me the size of the conflicting files. Attempting to open files from a LAN connection in an external application doesn't work. Not sure if it's because I'm impatient and the application was still copying the file over, but there is no reassurance that anything is happening. Despite the issues, I've never seen a file explorer that runs so stable.

What's new

Version 4.30:
- Android/data access on Android 13
- Two-pane bookmarks
- Ads: X-plore now contains ads. This was a hard decision, however this is a way how to keep the project alive.
Nothing changes for existing paying users, and they won't see ads at all. Also it's very simple to get rid of ads forever by purchasing at least the cheapest item: one beer.
Thank you for using X-plore.
