what happened? this is or was 5 star, hands down. totally awesome as no root required to rename file extensions like .jpg etc not sure if update issue or I'm just not on lollipop yet but this function has stopped working. I can't even delete files now. definitely back to 5 stars if this can be addressed. apologies to the dev if it is my device. I'm on galaxy s4. thinking of changing to nexus 6. cheers.
Right-hand app (Samsung s3) Totally dependable (free version, 3 years of use, currently purchasing pay version). DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP IF YOU ARE CARELESS! It is so easy to use that it is also easy to, say, delete a file unintentionally if you are inattentive. But otherwise this is a low-footprint, high-reliability means of finding and managing files on your device including storage card. I was about to install the very fat ES File Manager today when I realized that - while Andexplorer doesn't explicitly support the folder-shortcut capacity I was considering - all I had to do was to make its "Home Location" option the only folder to which I really needed a shortcut, anyway, then stick an AndExplorer shortcut where I can get at it easily.
Reliable This is a reliable, easy-to-use file manager with an intuitive interface. It also does not ask for a lot of un-necessary permissions.
Functional However, the search feature is worthless... so stick with the free version.
The best When I switched from Windows Mobile ™ to Android ™ the sales guy downloaded this without even asking. I'm very happy he did as this was / is an app that's very helpful and essential when beginning and using an Android device.
I can't believe that I've not rated this before! Indispensable. I don't think I'd be able to use my Nexus 7 without this app: it is so vital that I think of it as being built in, forgetting that I actually had to download it from Play Store! It has been on all my Android devices, from my very first phone and downloading it is part of my setting up process for a new device. I bought the paid version just to support a good developer.
