I love this app. It does everything you want in a file manager: connects with Dropbox and Google Drive, transfer files by sftp, allows one device to manipulate files on another device of yours, allows multiple tabs for easy navigation. And now they've made a way to set individual default sorting-orders for any directory. This had previously been my only complaint, that the current sort-order setting became the default sort-order for any directory you viewed thereafter. But now my Downloads folder sorts by "most recent" even though my Documents folder sorts by "name".
I've owned this for about a year. Absolutely superior to everything else I've tried. This is one of very few apps I've thought enough of to pay for. Works flawlessly, and the nicest interface ever. Color, icons, menu layout... Beautiful! Update 1/12/2018: Sideloaded to Nexus Player, unfortunately doesn't work with standard remote, as the "other" most popular, and most annoying file explorer does. Time to invest in an air mouse for the bedroom TV. Sure would like to see an Android TV version of this apk!
There are so many excellent file managers available for download from the Play Store. Suffice it to say that FX File Explorer is very close to the top of the list. My only lament is that FX does not recognize mov files. When FX is used to identify video files, mov video files are absent from the list even with the FX Plus Upgrade installed. Perhaps a future update might address this.
Still unable to add Dropbox account. No response from developer. Dropping review score accordingly. Unable to add a Dropbox account. Awaiting feedback from an email to developer. Other than that issue it appears to be a solid app. Found a fix (without developer help). It seems that you need the Dropbox app installed in order to be able to add a Dropbox account permission to the file explorer app. Once added you can uninstall Dropbox.
It's really good and worth it! The only problem I'd have is that the picture viewer doesn't play Gifs. Other than that it works wonders! Much better then the one my phone has preinstalled which I can't remove. Also can the new "sort by" menu be removed? Or maybe made so I can turn it off to the old setting and on if I want it to be there?
Dark theme. Great performance. Transfers well over wifi. Love FX. Colors, features, feel, everything the Best. Update; here it comes. Fugly "Free" Icon, and if you update you lose cloud features that were free before. Bait and switch has arrived at FX.
Icon and aesthetic updates to home screen, audio, apps, and cleaning tools.
FX Widget now supports adding any home screen icon to launcher desktop.
Improved thumbnail rendering performance and caching.
"Storage Overview" plots show disk usage in top-level folders, including local storage, cloud, and network shares.
Sort order and icon can be customized and saved for individual folders.
Display-as-icon now shows size/date overlay when sorted by size/date.
