Quick and easy and does exactly what it says. I had a file widget app already but it took up 28 MB! There's no reason such a simple function should take up that much space. This app only shows 3MB as installed. I uninstalled the other app. Also, I prefer the sizing of the home icon on this app because it's the same size as my app icons. The other one put a big icon on my home page.

This app saves me a great deal of time. Rather than always searching for a file, I can simply use it to find a file I need (like a PDF document) and make a shortcut to the home screen. So instead of the frantically searching and continuous clicking, I can access the file I need with one simple action. It is an ideal time saver. I use the older version on my old devices and the new version [V2] on my newer ones. Top marks to the developers.

This app used to work well for me on my Samsung S8, but now installed it on my oppo A9 and it's not working, I have uninstalled and reinstalled it, but no change. When I find the file I want to create the shortcut to, and select it, and click "open", it just goes back to the home screen.
