Well thought-out interface and feature-complete without too much bloat. Very powerful search with multi-criteria and dotfiles support. Doesn't pollute the fs with empty dotfolders like its competitors.
close, not quite. Request: Remember View. I always want Main Storage (where I was) in the left pane and Media Card (where I left off) in the right pane. Not Home, every time I run FX. Quirk: Moving files within a storge medium (filesystem), it does not simply reallocate the location marker of the file, it copies then deletes, unlike the built-in Android File Manager. Let's say I need to move a 4gb video file from Downloads to Videos on the same 'drive,' File Manager does it in a second, FX takes minutes. Can you fix that, please? Otherwise, I'm ready to adopt FX as my only file manager. It is light and quick and doesn't hog the memory with tons of useless monitoring services, like most others. Kudos.
1SEP16: Just installed this app, and it's already got a better feel to it than ES File Manager.. Will probably buy Plus. 2SEP16: Run in to my first problem transferring unknown files via Bluetooth, cannot transfer. 13JUN17: Bluetooth fixed. It would be nice to be able to manage file extensions.
CM File Manager losing root caused me to switch I'm a root user, and therefore need a reliable, easy to navigate file manager that is packed with options and power. This app successfully passes all areas for me, and offers so much more. I was so hesitant to switch file managers since I've been using CyanogenMods app for years and years, but I'm glad I did. My only gripe is that moving files/folders is kind of a pain and odd. Please check out CM File Manager and implement something efficient and intuitive like it!!
The most spectacular file manager app I have ever used, and it happens to be free with no ads. (As of April 26th 2017) As someone who's phone came prepackaged with a horrible ad riddled file manager this app is a lifesaver and the extra features and developer integrity make the pro version a worthwhile purchase. Keep up the good work.
Nexus 10 with 4.4.2 This app is great. Highly recommended. Thank you NextApp. June 2017 UPDATE Samsung S8+ new phone. This still an excellent, easy-to-use file manager. I use it throughout the day. I use the paid version. Great bargain.
Long press menu for storage/media homescreen items now includes basic usage plot.
SSH FTP improvements: opening default (home) directory. Support for services that don't allow browsing root directory (e.g. rsync.net).
Bugfix for using network/cloud connections while tethering is enabled.
