**Welcome to Shady**

Shady is the supreme file manager for root users. Shady is the only root file manager, other than Root Explorer (File Manager), that has full support for the elusive /data folder!!

Shady is the ONLY Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich graphically optimized file manager available! With cool graphical graphical tweaks Shady is an attractive new competitor to existing file management applications.

Shady has several root features including folder creation, file/folder renaming, delete, multi select delete, root editing of text files (build.prop, etc...), and you can even paste files/folders to root directories! Simply press the up icon in the action bar to navigate to root directories.

(Only for Phones!) Shady is the only secret file management application on the Android Market. With powerful AES/ECB/PKCS5Padding encryption you can hide and secure your files with the longpress of any file. Shady incorporates dial to launch technology pioneered and perfected in my Shady SMS line of products; with no icon and no open button you can use Shady File Manager to encrypt your files and use the dial to launch technology to prevent access to the app thus securing the decryption of your files.

    It can't follow links in the file system. Ex: /mnt/shell/emulated. It's very handy for browsing protected folders though.
