It's a basic app. Not even 1000 downloads and only been on the store for 6 days. No thanks will stick to a more established file manager.

Grazi.
Doesn't seem to be any Network support. Can add cloud drive but not my network attached storage options. Thanks but no thanks. Have voted hot simply for the fact that is £3.49 cheaper for 4 days!

Says it has LAN, FTP and Cloud support, looks like you didn't read the blurb thoroughly...

Are you sure you aren't confused with a different file manager app?
I have downloaded this thing. All it has is a feature called PC File Transfer. Poking that and it tells you to go to your PC and open up a browser with a URL (presumably pointing back to the app). You then have a screen on your PCs browser to do file transfers, There doesn't appear to be anything on the tablet / phone.

That does not compare with ES File Explorer Pro's networking support. An app I have been using for some time and is the benchmark for all other file managers. This one falls short and will deleted in 3 .. 2 .. 1 .. gone!

No problems with the Pro version of ES, are you talking abou standard? ES is good, only issues are slight bloat of unneeded extra features and some questions on privacy but nothing really major.

It does have network support with the PC file transfer, so you can copy data to and from another device such as phone or PC (workled OK when I tried it). Granted, it's a pretty rubbish setup and nowhere near as good as the other file managers, but the option is there. I don't think anyone would seriously use this over MIXplorer, ES or TC for example, but it's incorrect to say it does not have network support.

Mybad on the FTP support, it is "coming soon".

Hahahahahahaha, I can well imagine?.

A 'File Manager', for your File Manager's anyone ... hehehehehe. ;-)
Gave up on ES file manager and tried a few alternatives. Now stick with the free version of File Manager+ . Works a treat.
Mixplorer from XDA is great. Nice and simple and does it all. ES has been awful and bloated for many years now.

Good point that, split screen File Manager's are best served 'dual-screen' technologies on Tablets and such like (where the physical viewable screen size is obviously significant!).

As opposed to that of just Mobile Phone's (which notably are obviously not?!).

But it is what it is I guess?.

Hasn't every app on the Play Store had <1000 downloads or been on there less than a week at some point (but maybe not both together)?

This app is far too late to the party, is not very good and charging £3.50 isn't going to work. Free does wonders, it's now at 10k - 50k downloads, maybe that was the plan?
If you're looking for a basic file manager, try Google's "Files Go" ... I've been using it on my Chromebook.
I used to use Asus File Manager, it was good too.

I guess, but I prefer an all in one, don't have to bother figuring out what processor you have and if you decide to switch to another app there's less housekeeping.

Mixplorer is best free file manager who beat even paid file managers


I remember the day's when pretty much EVERYTHING on Android was free! - even Whats App was free!, while iOS fan boy's were paying 69p a pop for the exact same thing! (I know, as I was having both an iPhone and an Android Phone around that time ... )

But though, those day's of inevitable endless Android freebies, have alllllllll but blown away in the resilience of the artic wind's I think?. :-(
