    File Explorer (Plus Add-On)'s review

    Published: 2016-02-12, by .

    File Explorer brings a ton of customization options, cloud support, multiple window viewing to the file exploring scene

    • Material Design
    • Supports popular cloud services
    • Highly customizable
    • Issues with last update

    "Manage your device’s files"


    Made with the power user in mind, File Explorer lets you explore your device’s files along with the option to send files to another user via Wi-Fi or if you device has it via NFC. You can also open up multiple windows within this app, and if you happen to transfer files that are zipped with RAR or ZIP file extensions, you can extract them. If you also love saving everything in the cloud, File Explorer lets you upload important files to the most popular cloud storage services.


    File Explorer features Google’s beautiful new Material Design, making for a clean, sleek, and intuitive experience. File Explorer currently supports Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, SkyDrive, and a few other cloud services. It’s also relatively lightweight and it’s highly customizable.


    The last update has brought issues with useful features like multiple window support and writing files to the SD card.

    This app is crazy good compare to other file managers,as far as I've ever used.And that's why I expect being added a function of resizing icons and sumbnails on ChromeOS for this app's creators.

    Best File manger I've found and this add on makes it perfect for Cloud and networking. Only file manager I've found that handles SSH FTP connections using key pair extremely well. Highly recommended. This developer/s also completely respects your privacy and is forthright regarding permissions used
