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

    8.1
    • Material Design
    • Supports popular cloud services
    • Highly customizable
    • Issues with last update

    "Manage your device’s files"

    THE VERDICT

    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.

    THE PROS

    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 CONS

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

    Description

    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

    * 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)

    Still unable to add Dropbox account. No response from developer. Dropping review score accordingly. Unable to add a Dropbox account. Awaiting feedback from an email to developer. Other than that issue it appears to be a solid app. Found a fix (without developer help). It seems that you need the Dropbox app installed in order to be able to add a Dropbox account permission to the file explorer app. Once added you can uninstall Dropbox.
