One of the things Android users love is the ability to customize their phones according to their preferences. Since many Android devices don’t have a file manager, you can pick the one that works best for you. One of these seven apps definitely will provide you with the capabilities you need.
Tetra Filer is relatively new compared to other file manager software, and it offers a free version and an upgraded version for under one dollar. This app doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of its counterparts, but it does allow you to quickly and easily manage all types of files, and it allows you to access parts of your SD card on your Android smartphone for even easier file management.
Use the 14-day free trial period to decide if it’s worth the cost, but chances are you will like Solid Explorer enough to spend the $1.99 on the app. Solid Explorer offers basic file management functions and allows you to manage multiple files in cloud software like Dropbox and Google Drive. Solid Explorer works with many file types enabling you to work on Word files and audio files, and it even allows you to open zip files through the app. Although aesthetics aren’t a top priority for everyone, it also excels in this arena.
X-Plore File Manager
X-Plore File Manager is one of the more unique file manager applications available for users since it’s essentially a split-screen app, meaning it allows you to see two screens side by side. This innovation makes it easier to copy and paste files, or to move files to different folders without having to swipe between two separate screens. The app is free, but you may need to buy an in-app purchase for the file manager software to work best for you.
Amaze File Manager
If you’re looking for a free file manager app, look no further than Amaze File Manager. Although it doesn’t have all the features of paid apps, it’s perfect for those who are looking for lighter file-management software and apps for their Android device. Amaze File Manager allows you to download and access files, uninstall apps and includes Material Design. You also won’t get bogged down with a ton of ads and messages when using Amaze File Manager, which is rare for free apps.
ES File Explorer Pro
ES File Explorer Pro paved the way for Android users to access and manage their files. Although you can get a free version of this app, you have to deal with a lot of ads, and other annoyances. It’s worth the $2.99 price tag to manage your apps easily without worrying about ads and other disruptions. ES File Explorer Pro has every feature you could want from a file manager and is intuitive and easy to use for all levels of Android users.
As the name suggests, Root Explorer was created specifically for those who want to root their Android phone, and it doesn’t offer much more features than that. These root-related offerings include text editors, permission changing, XML viewer, and SQlite database viewer. For $3.99 you get an app that is regularly updated and offers SMB support and cloud support. If you’re looking for a comprehensive file manager, you won’t find it here, but if you’re looking a root access, you’ve got one of the better ones with Root Explorer.
Total Commander is an impressive and powerful app, even though it looks a little dated compared to newer, more stylish apps. What it lacks in design, it more than makes up for with ability. This app offers bookmarking, text editing, cloud storage support, network storage support, and plenty of other tools that makes this app desirable. The best part about this app is not just that it’s powerful — it’s also free, and it doesn’t bombard you with ads while you’re using it, either.
Whether you’re just looking for basic file managing software, or you want something more complex, there’s an app that can help you with all your file managing needs.
