About this app

Solid Explorer is a file management app inspired by the old school file commander applications. It will help you:
🗄️ Easily manage files in dual pane layout
🔐 Protect files with strong encryption
🖥️ Manage files on your cloud storage or NAS
☁️ Backup apps and files to any desired destination

Explore your device
Solid Explorer lets you navigate to files stored on your device and automatically organizes them into collections. You can view, delete, move, rename or share any files. It also allows you to quickly find the files you need through indexed search with filters.

Keep your files safe
Solid Explorer can protect selected files with strong AES encryption and put them in a secure folder, which contents are unreadable for other apps. The file manager will ask for password or fingerprint confirmation when you browse the folder. Even if you uninstall Solid Explorer, the files stay on your device and are still protected.

Analyze Storage
Although this file manager doesn’t feature a dedicated storage analyzer, you can find out which files take up most of space by going to folder properties of internal storage or SD card. You will find the information about the percentage of space each folder takes and the list of biggest files. You can also use search with a file size filter.

Organize remote files
Solid Explorer supports major network protocols and cloud providers to let you organize multiple remote file locations in one place. You can easily transfer files between cloud locations/servers just by dragging them from one panel to another.

I enjoy this app, but I purchased it years ago, and every few months it randomly resets the license & puts me on a trial period. "Restore Purchase" just results in an "Unable to restore purchases. Please try again later" notification. FAQ advises to uninstall and reinstall, which works, but loses all bookmarks, cloud storage configurations, etc. This happens on a regular basis; this is maybe the 10th time over the years. So, so frustrated; treat your paid customers better!

I've been using the paid version for years, I used the free trial for a short time and quickly bought it. Everything is intuitive, turn your phone to landscape and you have 2 folders side by side so you can quickly move or copy files. Nice customization, I have never found anything I didn't like about it. Edit 05-04-24, if it acts like you didn't buy the license, tap fresh trial then question mark, has instructions to restore purchase. Still love this app.

great app with some recent bugs I've been using this for some time now and I love every feature of it. the only issue appeared recently. before, if I changed the view options to a specific folder, the app would remember the change and always show me that folder with the changed view. the app no longer does this! I have to set the view every time I go back into that folder! even if I just go up one level and then go back to said folder, it's sorting is back to default.
