If you’ve been looking for a file manager that allows you to do just about everything you can do on a desktop just about as easily, FX File explorer is here to attempt to fill that gap.
It has a really interesting way of selecting multiple files without the risk of accidentally opening them. You swipe across anything you’re selecting and it becomes highlighted.
The most useful and frequently used folders are presented at application load so you don’t have to go searching for something you use constantly.
All in all the thing just feels more like a user-oriented application than most of the file explorers out there.
The free version of FX File Explorer does not have the base functionality for network connections that ES File Explorer does, however the multiple-window browsing makes cutting, pasting, and moving so much easier than anything I’ve used on Android so far.
If you need the network functionality, you can always purchase the network add on for $2.99, however chances are that the app will do what most people want right out of the box and the free version doesn’t bombard you with ads, so there’s that.
FX can also archive files or folders in most formats, although its RAR-capabilities are limited to read-only. There’s also root support, but that is a pay option, and probably worth it if you’re needing those features.
The features list reads like Zombo.com in that it’s probably shorter to list what it doesn’t do, however usability is where this app reigns.
Try it out, let us know what you think. If you’ve been looking for a new way to manage files, this is it.
