    Simply, this app is essential to my life. I can't imagine my phone or tablet without "ES file". I can't use the default or any other file manager other than it. I've been using it since 2012. You can manage, search easily, copy, cut, and move files in a magical way. You can upload files to the net, "YES" it acts as an "FTP client". You can browse your files on PC so easily.. and many many other features.

  2. guest-avatar apk Disappointed. I've used earlier versions on various phones and tablets. Those were fine. 1. Unable to stop logger. can select the apps, remove them from logging, but at that point cannot "confirm" or save the choices. One is required to log at least one app. 2. Cannot find a search function to find a file with unknown extension that could have been placed by an app anywhere on my phone. Not going to open every folder.

    v1.1.4.1 When ES File Explorer was just a simple file manager, it was great! Over time the app has added unnecessary "features" and ads that clutter the UI and make it really difficult to use since I usually don't have time to wade through all the extra junk. There is also some "space use" report that shows up in my notifications every couple of days. Tapping on it does nothing and I have found no way to disable it. Fortunately, there are a lot of file managers out there! If you need something simple, quick, and lightweight, try some of those.

    es file explorer manager pro apk Have had this installed for at least 7-8 years as my go-to and it has seen me through at least 5 didn't devices. ES always did its job but slowly, ads and unasked-for notifications ("weekly space report" etc) became more obtrusive. I recognize that you need the ads to keep running, though they have gotten worse lately. As of the most recent update, it crashes constantly - at least once per minute. Had to force stop but it turned itself back on. Can't figure out how to make it stop crashing, so I guess it has to go.

    es file explorer manager pro I would have rated this app five stars until today, when I discovered it could not read and write files to an external hard drive connected via OTG with an NTFS file structure, despite mounting it. What is exceptional about this app however, is its ability to read, copy and paste files to or from a remote external hard drive over a Wi-Fi network (but it doesn't enable you to save to such a drive from an application). It is apps such as this that have well nigh made my need for a pc or laptop a thing of the past.

    es file explorer manager pro download I have used this for several years and never had the following problem. I use it for viewing offline maps which I have grabbed from Google. These are basic jpg screen shots. I often want to 'blow up' the view (zoom) with my fingers to read details better. Recently that function is not at all reliable. Only about 30% of the maps will zoom. I have tried them all on 2 other viewers, and they worked fine. The problem appears to be totally random in the map selections that won't zoom in this viewer. Powering off/on, reinstalling software and maps, etc. does not help. It worked at least through last November, I now cannot use this app because of this new issue.

  7. guest-avatar

    apk download ES file explorer used to be amazing. Network drives, FTP, it had it all! Then it started taking over my phone. Popping up constantly telling me to optimize my files, how I'm running out of space. Even after disabling the pop-ups outside of the app, whenever a new "feature" would come out they're all back. The app itself was almost unusable with all the bloatware. The final straw came today when I saw a new icon on my home page for a "note checker" and new notifications. Goodbye ES file explorer, you will be missed.

    es file explorer manager pro apkpure Interface is fresh but it's cluttered. This is one of those apps where they feel you should pay a suscription to perform what has always been already there; support innovation, but really, how many ways are there of navigating to a file and opening it; everything else is bloat. And besides the subscription there's also paying for a never ending stream of new more "features" that no matter how many times you buy it all up to get truly rid of a little virtual price stickers that make it look that's just another cheap, ad-ridden app. Please don't support these developers, pay up front for stuff and check on the developers' ethos on their about us pages on their websites. Don't forget you can't return stuff if it's not what you wanted, be firm 'cause there's only a few minutes for that.

  9. guest-avatar Have used it for years on a number of tablets and was happy with it. Now have an issue that has cropped up in the past week where when opening a PDF from ES File Explorer to Acrobat Reader, Acrobat does not save changes to the file (despite saying it did). I don’t believe it is a bug in Reader as if I open the PDF from other file managers, it works perfectly fine. Have verified this issue on multiple devices. Tried removing / reinstalling, etc.

    free download I have been using ES file explorer for several years and I love how handy it is. It has a lot of useful features like it's root features, wlan file sharing, SD card analyst is great, It's got a nice image viewer and video player, can compress and decompress zips, rars and even apk files. I like how it balanced everything, but with the newer releases it feels like it's falling apart. The new design is overwhelming for me, I don't need to see all that. Things like mailbox and the constant pestering me to go premium. I get that you need to make money but if I am really annoyed by the free version, especially after using the old version for years I would not want to pay for this. But that's just my opinion

    What happened with the note editor? Tonight, I noticed the format changed and it has no function. When I clicked on it to jot down a note, the screen is blank except for a header with a back button/icon and a bottom slide type configuration (0%...) . Nothing happens when I tap on the screen, so there is no way to bring up the keynoard and leave a note configure the page.

    Adware and privacy nightmare. It was great in the beginning; however, after a few updates, it gradually started requesting more and more permissions to access nearly everything. Why don't I send you guys nudes too? If some of the features require more permissions, it can request them on a per-feature basis. I don't want a file manager app with such an extensive, yet unnecessary permissions.

    I downloaded it because I needed to put a pdf file onto a home screen on my Android phone. It can do that easily. See "Tom's Guide" for specific instructions, it's easy to do. Otherwise, it's a good file manager, does way more than I need. I wouldn't call it bloatware though it does have ads. Looks nice. Better than File Commander (came with Office Suite), and File Manager (free download). Give it a try.

    This app is by far the best file manager out there! It is very easy to manage, and works quickly. I especially love the media player, as it keeps audio running even outside the app - not to mention it pauses that audio when watching a video on YouTube. I repeat: PAUSES, not mutes. Once you've finished viewing a video, the audio picks up exactly where it left off when it paused. Besides that outstanding feature, you can extract, copy, and paste a .zip file and its contents easily. Thank you!

  15. guest-avatar

    There is a serious bug for external storage in ES file explorer. When a file gets cut and pasted from one path to another within that external storage (here, the sd card), the storage space is expected to remain the same, but here it gets increased by adding the size of the file getting moved to another location. When the device is rebooted, this problem gets solved (storage space is displayed as expected post reboot)

  16. guest-avatar

    The main purpose for this app was to access the files on my home network. The connection to those files was flakey and slow. Worse yet, when I opened an excel or Word file residing on the network PC, this program would rename the file extension so I would have to go to the PC and change the name back. Ridiculous. The people giving good reviews must not be accessing network files. I even paid for full version and reached out to support. No response. Using CX File Explorer now, way better.

    At first, I would like to complement the developers for such a wonderful app. However, I've observed that whenever I rename a folder in External SD card, it gets corrupted and shows as an unknown file of 0 byte size. As a workaround, and after trying to recover for few hours, I've found that simply restarting the phone solves the issue. Otherwise I'd almost lost a ton of pics I moved from internal memory. Still I would like to have this issue resolved. (There is no error while renaming in internal memory. And renaming in Ext SD works fine with native file explorer.)

  18. guest-avatar

    Used to be the best, but now it just turned into Bloat-ware. Way too many useless features and way too many ads. Slow to load and feels sluggish. Long time user but I can't take it anymore. I recommend trying "File Manager +". Has all the same advanced features (like remote PC access, root explorer etc.) but with a clean and fast interface. Kind of the way ES used to be. P.S. - After uninstalling my phone just runs noticeably faster overall. Apps take less time to load etc. This app was worse than I thought.

  19. guest-avatar

    A once great application has turned into a clunky tool full of bloat. The notifications, ads and useless extras make the application a pain to use. I understand the need to support development with advertising but don't hound me with ads when I am not using the application. Nor do I need a File Explorer to do anything other than let me manage and use files. I am sure I could clean up the problems within the settings, but I should not need to spend 30 minutes cleaning up the developers mess.

  20. guest-avatar

    JUST BUY IT NOW. JUST BUY PRO - NOW. BUY IT. BUY PRO. Yes the newer "free" versions are more annoying than the older free versions but the Pro version is low-cost. So buy Pro and get on with life. If you have any technical knowledge of computers and tablets, the Pro version is a no-brainer, and you will be very happy with the tons of features for less than 5 bucks. I would pay twice what ES is asking for Pro. This is excellent software. You will be finding more and more useful features as you go. I just set up my tablet as an FTP server and am running my backup software thru the door that ES File Explorer opened. That's just ONE of dozens of capabilities. You can access anything on your PC network via your phone or tablet. Just Buy It and give ES Global some credit for good work.

    I can't figure out what is going on with my Microsoft OneDrive Account? I've been using ES to access my onedrive account for years and never had any issues, but in the past 2 weeks I've had nothing but connection issues. My hotmail account stopped working on 1/7. Then It worked briefly again on 1/8. I had no luck until today 1/22. It worked all day today but I just got the same "Not Found" error message again tonight. Any ideas on what is going on? Is this something you are working on?

  22. guest-avatar

    Too nosy. Too many unnecessary permissions requested. Anytime I do some stuff on the phone this app suddenly fires up momentarily. The developer may respond to this message and explain how everything is for my convenience, but I'm not convinced until I truly know what is going on inside the app, how much data is synced to your servers, what data, and why. And how you will use the data. Hence uninstalling

  23. guest-avatar

    Bloated and over extended. Used to be great but now outs trying to do too many things and basic features don't work like LAN file exploring. Nags you about things you download and things you install. Tries to get you to install other apps to unlock features. In response to the developer, the adds aren't why I uninstalled the app. Even the baiting to install other apps for features aren't what pushed me over the edge because I've been using this app since I had my Galaxy S2 and loved it. It.s that things just don't see to work as well as they used to when you had fewer features. The tipping point for me was that the app can't find anything on my network and others can.

    From 5 stars to 1... Es swipe is the one and only reason I am uninstalling es file explorer. Please don't try to force a widget to your users. Even when I turn it off, it says "on" as if I didn't just do anything. So annoying. Moreover it didn't even go after uninstalling the app. Shame on you people. I loved ES File explorer. Never downloading again. You lost a very old (since gingerbread) user. I am saying as if you care. Good bye.

  25. guest-avatar

    There are several great features from this app. The ones I like are access to the trash bin (deletes can be restored from bin), record phone calls,easy to find files, option to delete several things at one time, able to listen to music in the ES app also this app analysis and clean for more space. In addition to showing a percentage of how much space is used up on my phone.

  26. guest-avatar

    The app is amazing in every way. It helps a lot when it comes to sorting out space and deleting duplicate files and temporary files that are no longer needed. It is a very helpful app for me as someone that works with large files that are mostly compressed. To be able to extract info on a phone is really special. I just wish that it was a bit customizable in the sense of themes and wallpapers. Other than that, a perfect 5...

  27. guest-avatar

    The best file browser I have ever seen so far. I mean, it has sooo many cool features that helped me a lot and I don't think they will be available in other file browsing apps. Such as selecting an interval of files, moving freely every where, supports root explorer, including a package of file opening applications (edit note, photo browser... Etc), allowing to change the type of file or even it's name not only 1, BUT A GROUP OF FILES AT THE SAME TIME! .

  28. guest-avatar

    lots of ads. lots of unnecessary functions. and subscription model. rly? subscription for file manager? upd: its not about money, guys. I'd love to buy es fe in some previous ui version, without unnecessary functions (or with an option to hide it deep inside), and for a fixed price. but now i've tried to "hide ads" and it offers me a subscription. why? what functions of file manager could be improved so much, regularly, so I need to pay every month?

    Used it one time , yesterday but it uses so much data when it's not being used and it's constantly sending data at the end of every morning in the early morning it makes me feel like it's upto something shady. Why would it be sending 12,999 kbs of data when it's not being used exactly? And why does it eat 26%of my battery when it's not even in use, sounds to me like this app is actually stealing information about what I'm doing more than anything else. Well it won't be able to do so anymore as I'm trashing it. I'll just use androzip it doesn't do this nonsense and only uses stuff when in use.

  30. guest-avatar

    This has been a huge help! I've been using it since 2 years and honesty it's better than the default file explorers. Last night, i got pop up ads on my home screen and i wasn't able to see the app's name as it was hidden. I couldn't even find it in the app drawer. But using the es app, i found it and uninstalled it. :)

  31. guest-avatar

    It is a powerful file manager application. It has those features which were beyond my expectations. But this app runs in the background without any reason. Please correct this behaviour. The Note Editor stops responding while opening large text files, if I delete files from Google drive, it generally goes into trash, but by this app, files are getting permanently deleted. Please correct these annoying things, then I will give ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. Other things are OK.

  32. guest-avatar

    Nowadays, the interface is very bloated with chunky assets, and a few useless features, but this has more useful features than many standard managers. As you get a decent amount of tools and functions for reading your files. Which are mostly supported. The notable tools would be the text editor, movie player, and music player. You shouldn't rely on any of the bundled in tools if you have more convenient options. You can also extract RAR files which is something over an average stock file manager.

  33. guest-avatar

    WARNING. Installs SPYWARE that displays continuous, persistent, intrusive advertisements even after you uninstall the app. Google "congratulations you won" and "es file explorer" for proof. Avoid unless you want to reinstall your system to get rid of the SPYWARE. These problems have been happening since at least 2016 with issues in 2017, 2018 and 2019. There are also reports that the app is constantly sending data to China about phone usage. Lots of evidence online about the shady nature of this app. AVOID

    This was one of my most used apps which became better with the addition media player etc. Some months ago my tablet began slowing down . (I have infinite patience having cut my teeth on the blue screen of death of early versions of Windows). However, the boundaries of infinity were extended by the constant slllooowwwing down locking up and rebooting. a I did a factory reset and much, much more and now my most used apps will not re-install . Uninstalled es file explorer and magically my tab was back to NEW performance,and has stayed that way for 3 weeks ,but my most used apps will still not re-install. I now use another file manager which is ok. NOW this pariah has re-installed installed itself from somewhere. Is there no escape from this pestilence or is infinity about to implode into the infinitesimal?

    Do not, i repeat DO NOT ever download this app !! unless you want data loss. i was moving files to my usb flash drive and all of a sudden.. it DELETED EVERYTHING.. everything was gone. over 50 gb of personal files and backups just gone and can't be recovered.. this app is a poor, poor excuse for a file manager and I will never use it again. Doesnt deserve a single star.

    This is a great app but the recent versions have one downside which have made me stop updating it: When opening an image, ES File Explorer only opens that ONE image and no previous/next files are sent to the viewing app (like QuickPic). So when you want to browse a folder of pictures you have to tap on the first one, watch it, tap back and then tap on the next one... You can't just tap on one image and in the viewer app (like QuickPic) just swipe left or right to see the previous and next image

    Hello, your client does not support TLS session resumption. Not requiring session resumption allows session stealing attacks. The problem with FTP is that the data connection does not authenticate the client: Imagine you a want to upload a new version of your website. To initiate the transfer your client sends the PASV command followed by the STOR command. The server opens a port and waits for the client to connect to it and upload the file. Now an attacker comes along and figures out the port the server listens on. He connects to the port before you can and uploads a piece of malware to your website. TLS session resumption prevents this, it acts as a form of authentication. If the TLS session of the data connection matches the session of the control connection, both the client and the server have the guarantee that the data connection is genuine. Any mismatch in sessions indicates a potential attack. Possible to fix this with the next Update from ES Files Explorer ?? Kind Regards Ralf

    The app does a great job at managing files, but is obsessed with being your all-around tool and making you see advertisements, even going as far as adding an unnecessary "messages" page, which literally takes news for other sites like yahoo news just to put ads in-between, making the app annoyingly bloated. Oh, and if you want to remove ads, use a night theme, use smb 2.0 or chech system-hidden files you need one dollar per month.

    This is the best file explorer I have ever used, I always put it on every device I have. The wireless file sharing & LAN file exploring features are very useful; you can send your friend an application if they can't find it anywhere, or you could copy your favourite music from your desktop. You don't have to sort through your big box of cables to find the right one anymore, just put both devices on the same network or connect them with Bluetooth. What happened to ES Task Manager though?

  40. guest-avatar

    Used to be a nice app but now it is full of useless and irrelevant features like file log notifications, sender, etc. Also, many of its features like accessing system files, theme used to be good but they needs to be unlocked by installing another third party app. If one installs them and unlock the features to find that they no longer work as in earlier versions. I wanted to access ringtones and wallpapers but I can't, I tried the same in many smartphones but doesn't work as it used to be.

  41. guest-avatar

    Could not function without this device. As a quadriplegic I don't get to just get out of bed to manage files on my pc. With this app I can easily manipulate files, stream movies, or synchronise files on my network. There are NO annoying pop up adverts or ads you have to watch to access much needed features. Well worth the download.

  42. guest-avatar

    One of the best file managers on Google Play, but that doesn't say much. Like most software, or "aps", on Google Play there are ads and popups asking for reviews and UI space take up by "paid features"... I finally discovered F-Droid, a repository of all free and open source software and now FINALLY got to uninstall this horrible commercial spammy thing and have installed "Simple File Manager" which is just that... no annoyances, ads, and certainly no "Paid Features". Glad to finally be free of this "Ap".

  43. guest-avatar

    If you are looking for an app that helps you to organize your smartphone files and data perfectly well to your taste. Then this very app is the best ever created for that purpose and even lot more cool things... Honestly, if there is more to 5 Stars..., say 10 stars, I would hit it for this app. I recommend this for any CEO or heavy office freak! Developer, please keep the well articulated good work coming!

  44. guest-avatar

    After years of using this app I've decided to uninstall it. It has become too heavy, too big, too slow with too many intrusive adds and "features" that are more annoying than useful. I really don't need my file manager app to scan my system or run additional threads in the background slowing my phone down and displaying useless popups. Thanks.

  45. guest-avatar

    The description shows a lot of great features and at least one review states that it is a full-featured app. LIES. You have to pay for the premium version to get the best features. Now I don't have a problem paying for a good app but I do have a problem with bait and switch tactics like this. Don't describe a full-featured product but deliver a stripped down version with telling us.

  46. guest-avatar

    Best file explorer I've found. Worst price. The second star is only because the app works very well, otherwise I'd rate 1 star because of the subscription model just to get rid of ads. This is greedy. If you want to charge for major revisions/features, that's fine; but don't charge a subscription just because you want a recurring revenue stream to fix bugs and work on your app. I refuse out of principle. Too bad, it used to be a great app.

  47. guest-avatar

    I always use this app as my backup Root File Explorer. I never quite like its interface. I need a simple interface like windows PC file manager. Sometimes my main Root Explorer failed to show SDCard content depending on the Android version and device model, but this app always do but I am not switching to use this app exclusively due to its interface. There is a danger lurking in this app. In the background it always try to connect to the internet for God knows what reason. My AdBlocker is always asking for permission to block or allow it to connect. I configured my AdBlocker to always block.

  48. guest-avatar

    Back in the earlier days of this app, it was well and truly the best file explorer available for android. Over the last couple of years the devs have run it into the ground, adding bloatware and ads galore, such as their fast charge thing, plus leaving your phone wide open to anyone who can use port forwarding. Ads on your lock screen that will take you straight to Google Play Store on unlocking, needing all sorts of permissions it shouldn't (why would a file browser need to make/recieve calls?)

    Totally the BEST. MUST HAVE APP FOR ANDROID USERS!! I had a stubborn file virus that refused to be deleted from my phone, I plugged my phone to computer but the file hid the entire folder it resides, I downloaded Android Avast, AVG, McAfee Antivirus to remove it but it will not listen. Then I downloaded Es file explorer manager , deleted the folder of the corrupt file and it ran to recycle bin. I chased it there and deleted it finally. This App is absolutely the Best I recommend it, it manages everything and take care of corrupt files and folders. I will certainly use it each time I buy a new Android phone.

    Downloaded to see if it can handle network, but it demanded me to install some 3rd party trash apps to even let me try. Way to go, loosing a pro-version purchaser in less than 5 minutes. Following the answer from dev team. Look, ads are fine by me, if i end up using an app - i buy PRO anyways. What is not fine is requiring me to install other unrelated apps, possibly viruses, on my device.

  51. guest-avatar

    just plain bad. relies on file extensions for file type and is filled with useless bloatware. would not recommend. edit: i do not mind ads, however i DO mind the useless bloatware that just takes up space, and makes annoying notifications every time you install an app. this is advertised as a file manager, and therefor should not have some useless "file cleaner" or "task sleeper"

  52. guest-avatar

    Its a good app and id only give it less than 5 if there were things wrong with it that it could do better. Which there are. For example its kinda tedious to move stuff from an sd card to the internal memory, alot of navigating involved. A shortcut to each drive could solve that. Also the Logger is useless for identifying new activity from app updates to find out where the extra 200mb came from for instance, which is the only reason id want to use a logger.

  53. guest-avatar

    There is a reasonable amount of function which is unhindered by ads. There are ads, and you can work around them. It is well coded and hasn't been rendered useless by the marketing yahoos. With that essential info passed on... Flat out one of the best i/o apps out there, especially if your on many heterogeneous networks. Hooahh

  54. guest-avatar

    In the current version the developer boasts about the new feature of identifying all music files in memory and add them in the playlist automatically even if you play one single song. What they don't get is it's not a feature of glory rather a drawback. Now I am not able to select few songs and play just those without creating a new playlist. If I need to listen to particular songs in any order earlier I could just choose and pick and add to currently playing list and listen which is impossible.

  55. guest-avatar

    So I'm at 3 starts. I love this app BUT! I combed through the other one-star star reviews. EVERYONE is super upset about the ads?! I haven't seen this yet, I'm returning because I'm reading great things. Es is always been a great application I'm going to move my three stars to 5 because I'm excited will return if I find the ads disappointing. FYI.. 25y making a living as a Net Admin / electronics technician & touring musician.

    I installed this app looking for some tool to help connect via smb2, later on after watching some ads I realized that's a commercial feature, meanwhile I tried other features and found it to be an actually very useful and nice app. So here is a revised review. Very special thanks to developers for their awesome job. One suggestion: Please specifically write down in the introduction of the app which features are not available and which are for sale only, so that one such as myself wouldn't waste time on something that is not there.

  57. guest-avatar

    Works well and gets the jobs done. It let's you dive into the files of your phone, delete pictures, move files, and even suggests things you should to delete to free up storage. I sometimes use it to move some of my pictures to a Micro SD Card, although sometimes moving things don't work. The ads aren't disruptive at all. In short, it's a great app that does what it claims, but there is room for improvement.

  58. guest-avatar

    It's a neat app... Allows otg transfer from phone to pendrive and vice versa. Easy to use. Hassle free. And allows me to visualize the redundant data files, new data files and helps me manage space better. It even has a clean up function... I don't usually write reviews but this app is exceptionally good!!! Nice work developers!

  59. guest-avatar

    This is the best app. It has and will foreva be the only one I use, when I say it has like, it damn sure has been the ONLY ONE. Every time I get a new phone this app is already saved to my SD so then book out comes the EZ FILE EXPLORER, FOLLOWED BY THE EZ MEDIA PLAYER! I just cannot even start to talk about the EZ SENDER option via my app mngr either... Like somebody has to get the word out on that, for me being in the age of the computer hacker I know using the SENDER is a huge relief for me whenever I need to send anything to anyone it's a gimmie that they are gonna get to downloading if they don't already have it bc I don't want to turn on my btooth in public.. So bravo sure an ma'am's, talk get 5 *starz*

  60. guest-avatar

    This app is pretty amazing for my needs. I have used other similar apps in the past, but for the last couple of years I haven't needed to try anything else. Oh, and this app keeps getting better, which tells me that the minds behind this app take their work serious enough to provide this more than adequate tool to the masses. 5 STARS!

  61. guest-avatar

    This app use to be my favor app with all kinds useful feature but now it is too intrusive and running like a malware. It has three service running at background using 190MB memory and battery at all the time. Place additional app icon without my knowledge. I expect an app terminated and release all memory back to the system but it did not. I'll update this review if they correct it. To developer: may be you can put it in setting so user can control when and how this app runs.

  62. guest-avatar

    I did not give a 5 because on my S8+ and then S10+, if you select a folder of jpgs, while you can slide from photo to photo you cannot pinch zoom on some of them. It's a hit and miss. They can all zoom in the default gallery app. This needs to be fixed. I have the latest update and still having the issue. I'm a photographer and many times when clients send photos I cannot zoom in. It's a bit annoying.

  63. guest-avatar

    2/4/2019 Update: No fix, no update from Dev, 1 less star. 1/16/19 Update: This was a terrific file management app, with access to the device, external SD card, network, and cloud. But the Microsoft OneDrive link broke. Here is the email I got when I reported the bug: "Sorry, the onedrive network disk api expires, you need to re-access the api, this may take some time, please be patient. very sorry for the inconvenience! - With regards, ES Support Team" When fixed, I'll restore my 5-star rating.

  64. guest-avatar

    Great for backing up apps and moving them to other devices using different Play store regions. Can move data over just about any type of connection, including CIFS shares over wifi, so usually much faster to copy wirelessly than bluetooth. Many features, all reliable and useful! I've used this app for years, on many devices over many versions.

  65. guest-avatar

    ((This is the best manager app you can fine, I wouldn't go without it)), Edit, app crashes when opening some game files in the note editor. Also I have been subscribed to premium for months now, I accidently uninstalled es file explorer but reinstalled right away but the app seems to think I'm not a premium member even though Google play store confirms in my subscriptions, everything was fine at first I had no problems what so ever, but now there are problems like crashing, causing my device to lag, not cleaning my cache at all... among alot of others as well....

  66. guest-avatar

    Sorry for late reply. As I said before; after installation (updating to v4. it shows 2 options : "Uninstall" & "Enable" (NO APPS showed this before). Choosing 2nd option makes Playstore crash. Each time device (v8.1.0) restarts app gets disappeared, uninstallation takes much more time. Also it doesn't show up in All Apps Settings (also not in App drawer after device restarts). Thanks for being concerned & for the tempting offer, but I just want the problem gets fixed. Please help me out.

    Useless icon appears on your home screen every time you open the app. Always getting notifications that the app has closed even when not directly in use. Controls fairly easy and may be good for a single job, but if you plan to use it a lot, the reappearing icons after you've deleted them and notifications it stopped working gets very annoying.

  68. guest-avatar

    Fantastic app. I think after the last update that there is a problem accessing lan networks. I can no longer access my shared files on my android devices. Please rectify this. Edit. Update, I only have the problem when I have my debian based linux machine plugged into an ethernet cable. The problem doesn't appear when I use a wireless connection for the same machine. It's a really strange bug, I haven't tried other linux OS.

    Well, been using this app for quite a time now but it sometimes has some very important issues. This is the last time I let them happen. Was moving my camera videos from the Internal hard drive to my SD card, which already had a folder called camera. Asked if I wanted to overwrite, and the answer was not to. It deleted the entire folder from my storage, and further, didn't even put it in the bin. The media with my family from the last weekend, all lost. Can't accept this.

  70. guest-avatar

    This app eats storage space. This app is good at helping out with finding files but if you look around inside it, you're going to find that it creates random screenshots and images of ads and stuff and it will eat up storage inside your phone. You need to get Malwarebytes or something else to remove the part of the part of the app which does that and you'll be good. The devs of the app may remove this review but I'll repost just in Case.

    A few days ago I started to download rom files for GBA games and it was working well. Today I wanted to expand my game collection so I went and downloaded a few more. However, as I was extracting files over to my sd card, all of my photos, downloads, and game files (including save files) were all deleted. I hadn't pressed the delete button and I've checked the recycle bin about ten times and they're nowhere to be seen.

  72. guest-avatar

    I had this application almost from the start when it came out. I found that features that i used to like on this app are now not available anymore, freely. Why should i download junk to my device to use feature in your app (main reason for 1 rating). As if screen full of ads was not enough. For basic feature default file manger is sufficient. Hence deleted the app. bye bye ES, not going to miss you at all.

  73. guest-avatar

    They have destroyed this app with built in clean utilities and all this category and advert stuff. With floating buttons. The app was great when it was just for browsing files, create a new app for these other utilities and go back to what this app used to be. RE: Fair play for the reply. I was perhaps a bit harsh in my rating so I've lifted it a little. My main opinion still standard. Create an app 'ES Cleanup Utilities' or something and migrate the integrated and overly invasive built in features to that. Leave ES File Explorer as it was, plain and simple with LAN, FTP, local etc file browing.

  74. guest-avatar

    The recently revealed hidden HTTP server with its security flaw, plus the software bloat of useless functions added (spyware?), ads, and other things, is just too much to bear any more. We've put up with the constant degrading of this app since it was bought out but it seems to have finally gone too far. I used you for years, now need to kick you to the curb as you've turned into a thug behind our backs. Sad.

  75. guest-avatar

    Very nice useful app for file managing and junk files cleaner simple look but complex complete choices and more tools makes it perfect. If you guys want the ads to disappear you can just buy the premium version, it is not worthless to buy it. I think it even much more better in the pro version everything is complete !This the best file manger & explorer in the world ! Thank you for dev of this app I really appreciate your work.

  76. guest-avatar

    what is going on in this app. I use it regularly, one of my favorite file explorer. now I have installed in my another new mobile. when I try to delete a file it is asking me root directory which I am unable to understand cox the hint that this app is given is so small that it is not visible to understand it properly. n when I tried to do it it's not showing anything. what a f***. irritating. I am uninstalling this app

  77. guest-avatar

    Uninstall! They took a great thing and ruined it. This current app is not the same app that received the great reviews. Off to find something with a lot less bloat. There are plenty out there (Ghost Commander)....all good things must come to end. Search sites and download a previous version (in the 3.x) and side load it. As soon as it opens and asks to update chose NO! Do not ask again. :) Also, most of these reviews are fake as some do not even pertain to the app.

  78. guest-avatar

    Only 4 stars because needs a big improvement for NVidia Shield tv devices, it is perfect if you're using a mouse, but not you're using a shield controller and sometimes you just don't know where are you on the screen because the colors contrasts. Give a thumps up if you're in the same situation like me.

  79. guest-avatar

    I am rating this three stars only because it has a data bloat problem. Other than that, it's a good app. The app size is less than 48 MB but I just discovered that with data it was consuming 383 MB. Clear the data and it's under 48 MB again. I just don't have room on my phone for any apps I have to monitor.

    I can no longer access my Microsoft OneDrive Account. I am hoping there is a work around or fix for this soon. It stopped working on 1/7 around 7pm CST and temporarily worked yesterday with remote sync disabled, but as of 1/11 I'm still getting the message "not found" when trying to sign in. I reached out to Microsoft but quickly realized that I'm able to sign in on the OneDrive app, my file esplorer in windows still syncs up with my account online, and I can access all of my files via the onedrive website.

    Ok so this app is good. It's currently the only file manager I'm using but it's really annoying. I don't know why I have to see the start screen every few days when I open the app to click on "Start Now" or having gestures enabled when I hate that feature or the app just moving itself to my home screen when I like my home screen void of apps. The app is good and feature rich but all this annoying little things has me looking for alternatives.

  82. guest-avatar

    Excellent application for exploring the mobile. Some suggestions: Please add the ability to rearrange the order of the shortcut icons on Home Screen. Also please add feature to choose which icons to hide and which ones to show. The application lacking the ability to view a zip file within another zip file. Music folder automatically scans and shows recent audio files. Please include ability to choose which files to show and play. Choosing and hiding recent files is also to be included.

  83. guest-avatar

    This app deleted my pictures the ones I liked the most its because of the adds everywhere and the complexed things so I suggest to you to change the place of the adds and write things in order and a little bigger because I have a small screen. Oh and I forgot my password please do something about that too. Except these it is super good,excellent.

  84. guest-avatar

    I've been using this app since my first smart phone and I love it. It give you a great and easy way to manage and access your files. The analysis aspect of it could use a bit more developing. By that I mean it should allow you to access the files it analysed. Other than that, it's a great app for file management.

    I have been using version which was the latest Ad and bloatware free version, but now it is discovered that there is a BACKDOOR in every version. They can get your files remotely.

    Tried to use it to connect Android devices to a shared hard drive on my home network. You either pay for premium or download bloatware. Edit in response to their response. I was not given an option to watch an ad. It was either download bloatware or pay a fee to use the basic network features. Don't sell yourself short.

  87. guest-avatar

    I first downloaded this app many years ago, when I wanted a basic File Explorer. Now they've added so many extra things to it but it's just annoying, I just want to browse my files and be able to search them and open them. Not a one-man bands do a thousand things send you notifications annoying app

  88. guest-avatar

    Convoluted UI. But the worse is when I'm trying to transfer over 10GB of video to my NAS over LAN... as soon as I go to battery mode AND use another app in foreground, ES will stop, and the activity will be destroyed. :( Seemed to work fine plugged in though... Huawei P10. Please fix. Not reliable for large transfers.

    A third party app came with hidden adware app that had ads constantly popping up randomly. After a few failed scans with antivirus apps I remembered my old friend ES Manager. Straight away I could see the app causing me problems. Simple uninstall along with a folder delete and my problem was no more. Best app imo for digging deep into your files.

    ES File Explorer used to be great. I remember it back in the old days of Android Jelly Bean. It was by far the best file explorer on the market. Now, it is bloated, slow, and full of ads. It has way too many features, is way too complicated, and has many gimmicks that don't belong in a file explorer at all. I'm going open source from now on.

  91. guest-avatar

    A very good file explorer. Switched to it after using Astro for better part of a decade. After the update to Pie, Astro became kind of useless (cuz it stopped showing my internal storage files, meaning I had no access to anything in my phones memory), so I installed ES. I was immediately impressed with the features it had to offer, so I kept it and its now my go to file explorer. It easily allows me to access anything in my internal storage, as well as my SD card. Definitely recommend this file explorer/manager. I would definitely say this is an absolutely must have app... Don't think I need to say anything more!!!

  92. guest-avatar

    Update: what is with the unexplained permission creep? If you are going to do an update that needs new permissions to install, at least explain why. Prev: was looking for a file manager that would let me browse network drives and stream movies - this app was the first I came across that would let me do just that without hassle. I actually came here to buy it - looks like a review is the best I can do to thank them. Thanks! ***** it is now 5 years later and still feel content - what are the competitors to this?

    I think it does what it says. I uninstalled after about a week because it started managing parts of my phone without prompting. For example I had to use the app UI to manage my phone's ringtone. Weird. I mean, I got it primarily for file management. Maybe I got the wrong app. ES has a lot of apps.

    Good app all around. Would give 5 stars if there was less bloat and better prompts for enabling screen overlays. Over all, works very well for what it needs to do. My only gripe right now is that my OneDrive "is not found" for some reason. Fully closed the app, rebooted my device, still somehow can't find my OneDrive.

  96. guest-avatar

    Installs additional "tools" without warning, and without the option to get rid of these unrequited "tools". Subsequently this app occupies 16MB, compared to another excellent File Manager which takes only 6MB. This app also requires way too many permissions! I wanted a simple File Manager, so I promptly uninstalled this bloated app, and found a suitable File Manager.

  97. guest-avatar

    after i got it i would get random popups every 10 second because of this app , my phone would explode with something that would pop up and say " this application is not responding , would you like to close it ?" and it wouldnt stop will about every application forcing me to restart my device just for it to happen again about ten minutes after i turn it back on. i hope no one has to go through what i went through

    I used this app for quite some time and when my phone was broken I tried getting on the new one but it says my password is wrong. I'm very positive it isn't but there is no way to change it or login otherwise. It is kind of upsetting being I saved important things with this app and now can't use it. If this was not an issue it would get 5 stars.

  99. guest-avatar

    great app for file management. Lots of apps to go go along with this tool. I bought the pro version fpr my rooted nexus 6p. The logger is good. Pick all file types for the logger and see what is being accessed, created or harvested on your phone. Combine with a few more tools and you can at least know what is happening on these half locked Linux servers that make APT type attacks much easier..

    The subscription business model sucks. I'd like to support app developers for creating/maintaining good apps but allow us to buy it outright. the current $11.99/year subscription plan is over-priced considering over 5 years, it would cost $60.00 and I dont even own a copy, I just rent a copy. in the crowded field of file managers in Google play, it is really, really hard to justify the cost you're asking users to shell out.
