I've been using this for a long time, and have generally liked it a lot. However, recently I tried using the FX Connect feature, and it would not work correctly, although it worked in the past. I sent a support email, with no answer after a week or so, so I resent the same email, as a forward, so they'd know I already sent it once. Still no reply after another week or two, so until I get a reply, I will rate them at one star. I don't expect perfection, but I do expect some response to a bug report. Sorry FX Same problem months later with another bug report. Uninstalled FX, installed Solid Explorer - much better, easier to use, and no errors so far.

Unable to transfer to external network storage. Support is basically non-existent --so you're on your own! Samsung Galaxy Note 8 & 9. I took my time writing to ask if there was a way to circumvent this problem and I never heard back from them... Probably never will. I can do this with all other operating systems. The circle spins "Can read from sources" I love the app. I actually preferred it to the Android because it's more intuitive. However, not responding to your customers is not acceptable

Instantly wanted to purchase but waited to test more. Be sure to try the trial. This developer makes some great apps. Always room for improvement but it's definitely on par with the best. I'm coming from ES Pro, so I'm missing some of my old features, but this brings things to the table I didn't have before. I really miss my swiping between windows the most (the current isn't as fluid/natural)...
