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. The only thing it doesn't have is the ability to set a default sort order when listing the contents of particular folders, like, say, your Downloads folder (because it's very rare that I need to sort my Downloads folder by anything else but by date).
I used to use ES File Explorer, and I used to think that it was the best there was. Then they started introducing ads, unwanted features, and spyware and I decided I needed to find an alternative. I searched for days but nothing was able to do the things ES did. Then I found FX. FX is great. It can manage files, tell me where duplicates are, and go to the root of the filesystem, just like ES. It also showed accurate sizes, came with built-in tools, and provided easy to use menus, also like ES. However, unlike ES, it doesn't have ads, it doesn't pester you, and it respects your privacy. It also does things that ES wouldn't do, like show folder sizes! I recommend this to anyone who wants a good file manager without all the bullcrap. I would like to give this 5 stars, but I haven't seen everything this app has to offer--I'm going to buy pro and check that out too!
Great file manager, would be 5 stars except for one thing. Needs to allow encryption ssh private keys, I really dislike having to keep a clear text key on my to use the SFTP feature.
Wont lie, i am pretty much using this because Solid explorer hasnt updated and still uses smbv1 which is not secure. Its a big change in UI but it gets the job done, had to disable a fair ammount of features i didnt care for like tips and the text editor shortcut. Would probably dominate if it supported smbv3
Excellent app! But, PROBLEM: Using the Translucent style, the Custom Wallpaper doesn't stay put once the app is closed, next time it's open, the background is full black.
Ever since I found this app - that make file management that can be challenging at time, very easy for even the "noob" - I began installing it on every family and friend's device when they needed a file manager. Since then, it has been their file manager of choice! Tons I features that make a "noob" become a pro!!
