Wow! When I saw that this app hasn't been updated since 2006, I was ready to give it one star, but WOW. This is a great TWO-WINDOW explorer and it is very, very FAST! So if you're tired of slowness of, say, Solid Explorer, you must try this app. The app's footprint is small (only 35 MB), but unfortunately you can't move it to the SD card. Also, the app does not give access to any cloud storage. I'm still giving it 5 stars for its speed, simplicity, two-windows, and comprehensive operations.

Clean and lean implementation. No BS, no wasting of resource, no background process and can handle most file formats, even ZIP files. The UI is clean and very easy to use. One can even define shortcuts for quick access in the library. MK Explorer doesn't have the ability to connect network devices, though. Maybe an plugin for connect network devices would be a nice addition for users who need it.

Really good app with beautiful UI, customisable. I would give it five stars, but one issue: if the file's name starts with the author's last name, and you write it in the search box with the first name followed by the last name, or vice versa, the app search results will be "0". This is an important issue that should be fixed. I work with books, so, this issue is of first priority. The only File Manager that does it correctly is the Samsung My Files app. Please fix this issue. Really great app!
