Good app with great features, easy file navigation, even plays videos. BUT, renaming a file sometimes makes the file disappear from the Google Photos app or from Google Files. This seems like a serious issue. Some sort of link / directory structure is being broken. Is anyone still maintaining this handy app?

!!! In contrast to all below in this post, in certain cases, instead of copying content, it creates empty files and deletes the other if that was a move op _ _ Though Samsung's FM is same _ _ The best file manager of 35 that i checked . BTW that its just the Android File Manager, it doesn't support any remoting, but has every feature that it should . Would be good to change the move and compress icons to more default/recognizable ones _ _ And would be awesome to have NTFS support for OTG X)

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!
