Just the job Does exactly what I need and is easy to use. After installation just browse your WIDGETS and you'll see 2 new ones. One for files and one for folders. Tap whichever you want to use and then specify the path to the file or folder you want it to point to. Give it a name, then just drag it to your homescreen. To use it just tap on it and the file or folder you specified will open. Very useful. Thanks for a very nice little app!
Exactly what I was looking for | Samsung Galaxy S4 This simple widget pack is exactly what I needed to create links to files and system folders, such as my downloads folder. Now I don't have to sift through my main system folder for things I want and no more downloading then moving to desktop folders. It's also non-invasive in that it does not need access to seemingly unnecessary stuff, as some apps are today. A+!!!
So far, so good.. I like it! Prolly won't be using it now coz Media Shortcut just gives a better look.. so I would say that this app still needs a lil more work on the appearance... Don't get me wrong.. I like how it's all done... (^_^)/
Good app It is a very good app...but I can't organise my file widgets into a folder...also the folder widget opens a file manager and one can browse through all the folders...thus there is no security please solve these problems...otherwise its a great app... I add the 5th star after the above problems are solved :)
Almost perfect An excellent idea as many android files are in strange locations and hard to find. Being able to create shortcuts to files and folders makes finding them later much easier. One missing feature is the ability to edit shortcuts later if the edit box was not selected initially. This forces users to delete shortcuts and start again.
Doesn't link properly to folder All my files in the folder are listed but when I click one (in this case saved emails) it says I can't open it. I don't have this problem when going directly into my files and doing it from there so something is missing in order to be able to open it thru widget.
