    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.

    FX File Explorer features a Material Design UI and new ways to transfer your files between devices and computers:

    * SMBv2 support.
    * New "FX Connect" transfers files from phone-to-phone with Wi-Fi Direct. Supports NFC to connect two phones by physically touching their backs together. (requires FX+)
    * New "Web Access" enables transfer and management of files and media from your computer's web browser. You can drag-and-drop entire folders to your phone from your computer, or stream your phone's music playlists to your computer over Wi-Fi. (requires FX+)

    FX is a file explorer built to make working with files and media on your phone or tablet as easy as it is on your computer:

    * Productivity-oriented "Home Screen": Directly access your important folders, media, and cloud storage
    * Multiple window support, with dual-view mode to see two windows at once
    * "Usage View" mode shows the total size and content makeup of every folder, as you browse and manage files
    * Support for most file archive formats

    FX protects your privacy:

    * No advertisements
    * No tracking of user activity: FX does not ever "phone home"
    * Built by NextApp, Inc., a US corporation founded in 2002; all proprietary code was developed in-house

    The optional FX+ Add-On module enables more functionality:

    * Access networked computers, including FTP, SSH FTP, WebDAV, and Windows Networking (SMB1 and SMB2)
    * Connect to cloud storage including Google Drive, Dropbox, SugarSync, Box, SkyDrive, and OwnCloud
    * Manage installed applications, with support for browsing applications based on their required permissions
    * Create and explore inside AES-256/AES-128 encrypted zip files
    * Browse audio content by artist/album/playlist; manage and organize playlists
    * Directly browse photo and video folders
    * Encrypted password keyring (use one password to access network and cloud locations)

    FX includes a number of built-in editing/viewing applets:

    * Text Editor (with undo/redo history, cut/paste, search, and pinch-to-zoom)
    * Binary (Hex) Viewer
    * Image Viewer
    * Media Player and pop-up Audio Player
    * Zip, Tar, GZip, Bzip2, 7zip archive creators and extractors

    I love this app. It does everything you want in a file manager: connects with Dropbox and Google Drive, transfer files by sftp, allows one device to manipulate files on another device of yours, allows multiple tabs for easy navigation. The only thing it doesn't have is the ability to set a default sort order when listing the contents of particular folders, like, say, your Downloads folder (because it's very rare that I need to sort my Downloads folder by anything else but by date).

    Outstanding. No cache build up!!! No ads. No unsolicited internet action. Wh I see, "No ads," I can count on my firewall being blown up by an app that surfs the net more than I do, sending who knows what info to God who knows. Even simple calculator apps do this. Not FX. This app has never even made an attempt to use the net except when i linked Dropbox. Without root access, I can still view root files. Works very well. These are the devolpers everyone should routinely support. ...I think I love you

    Excellent app! But, PROBLEM: Using the Translucent style, the Custom Wallpaper doesn't stay put once the app is closed, next time it's open, the background is full black.
