    Description

    Ghost Commander is an open sourced dual-panel file manager (as well as a FTP, SFTP, SMB, WebDAV, Drive, BOX, Dropbox client!) which will let you to manage your files locally or remotely as well as tweak your system in the root mode.

    This is an open source software (see http://tinyurl.com/gc-source) and does not show any advertisement!
    The project exists only because of your donations.

    The main idea behind the user interface is classic: copy and move files from one panel to another. Simple.
    Also, to not overload the display with extra checkboxes, file selection is made as follows: each file row is divided by two zones: tapping on the left you open files and folders, tapping on the right you select multiple items. If you are left handed, that could be swapped in the settings.
    Writing access to external sdcard drives and USB OTG is provided through a special "Storage Access Framework" mode. Native mode can give only a read-only access to external drives.
    Ghost Commander supports FTP and SFTP servers and Windows network shares, as well as Google Drive, BOX and Dropbox cloud storage (plugin required), plus it can create/extract ZIP archives and work with as it was a regular folder.
    For advanced users, this file manager also supports root (superuser) mode, which is essential to work with protected system files on a rooted devices, like to change file permission attributes/owners (chmod/chown) and even execute your own shell commands (busybox required).

    This file manager is very customizable and comes with a lot of options which allow you to adjust its appearance and behavior to your personal tastes and habits.

    Here's a list of the file manager's features which include, but are not limited to:
    * easy sorting by name, extension, size or date
    * customizable multiselect (by tapping, or select by wildcards)
    * root / superuser (su) mode: remount partitions and make changes in system files
    * change file owner and permissions (in root mode only)
    * working with files via the MediaStore perspective (which allows writing access to external SDcard on Kitkat)
    * ZIP archive support: create and extract ZIP files, view inside a ZIP without extracting
    * built-in FTP client: upload to/download from your own site or a public one
    * favorite shortcuts for folders and locations
    * calculation of file and folder size and MD5 and SHA-1
    * file search by content and other properties
    * text editor (built-in or external)
    * text and picture viewers
    * sends files via email, Bluetooth and so on
    * personalization: colors, font size, interface language, custom toolbar, etc
    * Windows network support via an optional SMB plugin
    * Streaming audio/video from a remote location to a player app (VPlayer is recommended)
    * Access to the Google Drive, Dropbox and BOX or any WebDAV enabled cloud storage (with plugins)

    Requested permissions explanation:
    INTERNET - to make FTP and other network plugins be able to connect to the servers.
    No connection is established without your command to do so.

    Can't delete / cut files / folders without root? Didn't have this problem in old phone / older android. Stock file manager is cripled by ads but is able.

    No gain over Total Commander: Access to SDCard using stock file manager is awful. Total Commander provides its native interface for that too (so it's quite obviously possible).

    That's a perfect two panel file manager for both local and network file systems. Also my favorite ftp manager.

    I have tried plenty of other file managers but this one has them all beat with the amount of customization you can have. I was even able to apply a custom font I made of my own handwriting with no root(note 5) The addons make everything so convenient having all the necessities in one app. I move lots of files from my phone to a ReadyNAS and this app makes it seemess. I had an obscure problem so I emailed the dev and he was on it instantly. Couple emails later everything was squared away, user error lol. Give this app a try if you're looking for something new, a change of pace from your current or just compare it to what you're using now and don't be suprised if it's the other app that gets checked under your disabler!
