I never thought I would be writing a review for an application in android. But this one was so beautiful and elegant, that I felt compelled to write one.
I have always craved for a file manager in Android that lets me treat my mobile device, not so mobile.
The mobile methodology of file browsing through trees or lists was not effective in managing files effectively. I found it cumbersome to use and tried my best to avoid file browsing in the phone.
Why can’t Android have a traditional file manager like Windows Explorer, or like Linux file managers (Thunar, Nautilus, Nemo etc.), which would make file browsing a lot easier on a mobile device?
And thus came FX file explorer, on a search in Google Play.
Boy was I happy.
Traditional window management, zoom in and zoom out of icons to make them bigger or smaller, built in text editor, bookmarks at the top, search bar for instant file search, script runner and root file browser, were all the things that made this application so intuitive and useful.
They even have made the root access plug-in free, and there are no ads. The file manager is free with root browsing capabilities. Apparently, you’ll have to buy the network plug-ins to use network services in the file manager (at the time of this post, network management plug-in costs 169.14 INR).
Hey, thought I’d let all the android users know. Enjoy!
