FX File Explorer features a Material Design UI and new ways to transfer your files between devices and computers:

* SMBv2 support.
* New "FX Connect" transfers files from phone-to-phone with Wi-Fi Direct. Supports NFC to connect two phones by physically touching their backs together. (requires FX+)
* New "Web Access" enables transfer and management of files and media from your computer's web browser. You can drag-and-drop entire folders to your phone from your computer, or stream your phone's music playlists to your computer over Wi-Fi. (requires FX+)

FX is a file explorer built to make working with files and media on your phone or tablet as easy as it is on your computer:

* Productivity-oriented "Home Screen": Directly access your important folders, media, and cloud storage
* Multiple window support, with dual-view mode to see two windows at once
* "Usage View" mode shows the total size and content makeup of every folder, as you browse and manage files
* Support for most file archive formats

FX protects your privacy:

* RAR file extractor
* Shell Script Executor

Android 8 / 9 Location Permission Notice

* NOTE: Android 8.0+ unfortunately required us to add the "approximate location" permission, as it's now required for apps that support Wi-Fi direct (because Wi-Fi direct leaks this information). FX does not ever actually query your location, and this permission will only ever be asked for on Android 8.0 and later when using FX Connect. This requirement previously applied only to Android 9.0, but because FX now specifies full support for the latest Android API, Android 8.0 also requires this permission.

App ChangeLog

  • * Android 8+ Fixes for FX Connect: Android 8+ *REQUIRES* us to add location permissions to use Wi-Fi direct (apps can theoretically abuse Wi-Fi discovery to get your location). Location is never actually used by FX. You will NOT be asked to grant this permission except when using FX Connect on 8+.
  • * New Google Drive/OneDrive implementation: faster/fault-tolerant uploads, edit documents directly (req Google / Microsoft Office apps).
  • * Fixes for Dropbox and WebDAV/OwnCloud
  • * Minor UI updates

    This is by far the best file manager I've seen for android. No ads and amazingly full of features. Very easy to use but powerful enough for advanced users. Also highly customizable. I can't imagine the amount of work that went into making such a polished and capable app. The free version is excellent and complete. But the extra features with the paid version add some nice functionality (the network and cloud file transfer work very well, better than most other apps I've tried). I'm happy to pay this developer for such high quality.

  2. guest-avatar

    apk The file manager: So, so, so good. I will never understand why Android didn't come with something like this. The text editor: 80x better than any other text editor for Android, and I have tried many. Lacks find & replace function (just has find), but it's such a breath of fresh air compared to literally everything else. Someone please make this exact app with added find & replace, I'd never need another text editor.

  3. guest-avatar

    Its a powerful file manager with lots of utilities inside, however its strange i have bought the professional version on one phone, planning to install it on another phone but it requires me to pay again on google play, its so good i dont mind pay again to use it on second phone, but not only did it charge again, it said youve already paid for it and i couldnt install it, please help Problem fixed thanks

  4. guest-avatar

    Amazing App 👍i love it. It's got out all covered Performance, Appearance & Style, best features, File transfer, Split View are the best, you can easily manage your data. I have just one small request, That is when you move any type of data between Main Storage (internal storage) to Media Storage (SDHC) The actual Data and Time overwritten with the current time. Which is so annoying.I want it to keep the original metadata information, for images and videos so it can easily sort out by time.

  5. guest-avatar

    I really want to like this more than I do right now. but it constantly has 'network errors' and drops networks streams quite regularly: every 18mins, 24secs (weird...). most similar apps can pick up their stream if interrupted, but FX can't. since most of my use for this is in network operations, it is disappointing that the one core feature I need is so unreliable, even if regularly so. everything else about it is marvellous.

  6. guest-avatar

    I was so stuck on the old es file explorer, that I even went as far as installing the apk from another source, even after their whole scandal. They had everything that I thought I wanted. Until now! You brought everything they had AND MORE! Just bought the full version. THANK YOU. Ill leave you a 5 star review, but I only ask for one feature. Please add the ability to hide folders on network drives. A lot of my folders on there is pure clutter. Thanks again!

    Great file manager. Provides most basic functionality in intuitive ways. Supports stable remote filesystem access like ftps, etc. I have tried out many alternatives and this surely is a topper! I used ES File Manager before, but since that one is no longer safe and supported this is a worthy alternative. And... no ads! Even nice themes!

  8. guest-avatar

    I've been using this app for over a year and am totally satisfied with the free version. It has all the features I need without being overly complicated. I use the root access feature a lot, it's a lot easier than typing long random paths into adb push/pull when trying to hack games. This is one of the few play store apps that I would trust to have root on my phone. No ads, no trackers, nothing that could give some Chinese tech firm more backdoors into my phone.

  9. guest-avatar

    Very versatile and robust. I have been using CM File Manager Pro and ES File Explorer Pro, but their OneDrive Cloud could not work after I change my router to TP-LINK Archer C1200. I tried many apps and not a single one of them work properly with this router. Finally, I found this app, it works so well and it has all the functions I want on a file explorer. This is easily the best file explorer.

  10. guest-avatar

    Really good, but there is not yet mouse support, and this would be really easy to add. Other file explorers have mouse support but they are not as nice as fx, so i will continue to use fx and hope that i can right click to see context menu someday in the dear future. However, i might find another file explorer out there that takes the cake... Tablet computers are growing in popularity, whether its chrome or blue tooth keyboard and mouse.

  11. guest-avatar

    current best explorer; need better filename sense when choosing Save As option; need more support samsung dex feature especially when using a mouse with right click option. need more flexible network password management. typing a password every moment is a pain. perhaps a biometrics option wld be good. otherwise, best atm.

  12. guest-avatar

    Excellent. Would give 5 stars but for one problem. When connecting to Google Drive on my Samsung S7 phone, it fails with an 'internal error' message. No other explanation given. The same app on a Lenovo tablet works fine. Any suggestions to fix this error? I'm using the paid for version.

  13. guest-avatar

    there is something about this FM, that make it exceptional. It could be its easy interface, it's great organization of the tools. And it looks awesome in dark mode

    This app may be better than Solid Explorer. It allows you to distinguish disk space usage in pie chart. For rooted devices, you can turn on the root access feature for free. Keep improving this app. This is your #1 file manager. Also, the developer isn't working on this app now.

  15. guest-avatar

    Adina Hirschmann


    LG LS775, Nougat 7.0. Sitting out this update until there is an option to use original icons and settings, which was my reason to switch from previous file manager application in the first place. Your new material UI is flat, generic and just plain boring. Please notify me when your improvements include this "classic" option. My philosophy has always been "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

  16. guest-avatar

    Excellent app, but for one limitation. I find this app well designed, from its "usage" view, to the split screen implementation, cloud storage connection with adding a device wide account. Also, the webaccess feature is amazing to use.

  17. guest-avatar

    It's the best file manager out there, love it's clean design, and has lot of useful features. Plus it doesn't sell your data to anyone

  18. guest-avatar

    Needs 7zip with dual pane with compare folders hide same & when copying files keep original dates. Compare folder to archive contents. 3D file viewer with thumbnails. User edited open file extension panel with only user selected apps.

  19. guest-avatar

    The main app is great, unfortunately the thing I need the most often is the txt editor, & there are 2 things it really needs: 1) Whenever the txt app gets minimized or backgrounded & it deletes everything typed when this happens- every time, but it still "claims" that it saved when it obviously didnt. U should B able to disable it creating a new document so it doesnt ruin the work U did. Also it doesnt autosave or autoload the last file opened/saved.

    Larry Frascarelli


    I am impressed with this app. It is fast and powerful with many useful features. It's now my "go to" app for file management. I purchased all of the "pro" features. I used to use ES File Manager Pro but the company that bought it has been under fire for questionable practices and I am hesitant to use it. FX File Explorer not only replaces it, it surpasses it in features—and gives me peace of mind. 👍👍👍👍👍

  21. guest-avatar

    Good for Android, so-so for Chrome OS. It does everything I need it to do, file access, Windows network shares, and Google drive access on Android. When I initially used it in Chrome OS, it did the same, as such I opted for the upgrade to make it my daily driver. A few days ago, it couldn't find my Windows shares, giving me a network error. I had to find another solution for Chrome OS, but still recommend it for Android proper.

    Wojciech Wscibski


    WARNING! Be careful before you install this app may spy on you. Anyone wants to tell me why FX requested my location in the background? When I was at work and not using the phone? I paid for this app and its premium features. App itself is doing great job as a file manager but looks like it's spying on you

  23. guest-avatar

    Nelson Schneider


    Fantastic app! Works on phones, tablets, AndroidTV devices flawlessly. The free version is good enough, but the reasonably priced pro upgrade is 100% worth the money for the added networking features.

  24. guest-avatar

    It was best. But now can't move same file in a single folder. "Keep both file" option is not there only overwrite/merge them. My so many images have same file name. Can't rename them one by one.

  25. guest-avatar

    This is the best file browser I've ever use. It has a mature UI with loads of theme and customization. I've been using this for quit a while now. However, I will prefer if the dev could bring back the pop up menu when a file is long-press, this makes the app easy to use with one hand. Also the text editor should be updated to include "search and replace" function!

  26. guest-avatar

    Vladimir Bagaev


    Many thanks to you for your application FX File Explorer! I believe it’s really outrageous. I use it for last 2 weeks and enjoy it a lot. The first feature, which led me to your explorer – was a range select. I mean, where a user needs to click only the first and the last file in order to select a big range of files; instead of clicking every file in between. This is really helpful, I was missing this feature in default explorer very much. I managed to sort out my gallery of photos for last 3 yr

  27. guest-avatar

    An excellent file 📎 manager app, I have been using this as my main file msnager app for some time now… somehow I always come back to it and no matter what it ends up installed on my phone! I higly recommend it!

  28. guest-avatar

    Great to navigation. No ads. What more can one ask for? Includes root file access and text editor which is a nice bonus for developers. Absolute pleasure to use because of all the great customisations.

  29. guest-avatar

    Luminous Epoque


    Nice file manager, but it's really messed up whenever I switch order from alphabetical to date; the folders stop showing up in top of the screen and it's something I'm not used to, which is quite a pain on my neck.

  30. guest-avatar

    Hands down the best file manager app on Android. Insanely powerful, with beautiful graphics. No intrusive ads, and once you purchase fx plus the app actually gets the message and gets out of your way: no such thing as Plus Premium upgrade or stupid subscription nags.

  31. guest-avatar

    FX Explorer deletes the entire destination flash Drive/Memory Card when the files copied is greater than the free space available on the destination Drive/Card. It doesn't even stop you from copying. It just copies and wipes. 😳

  32. guest-avatar

    Great app. It has a nice and intuitive UI and has many useful functions to manage files. Very important is the multiple file explorer managing view that allows to switch fastly between directories.

  33. guest-avatar

    I use this since 4 years ago.. and never change... the best explorer on store... btw, i have problem n also sugestion.. First, apps folder not show any applications list... This feature only for rooted devices ? And second, it's would be good if this app had recycle bin and something similar like that :)

  34. guest-avatar

    The BEST file explorer for android! This app will give your android system a full file explorer as if you were using a Windows or Mac computer. You can access your internal storage and SD card and cut, copy and paste files. You can even change theme colours. I am always using the network side of this app to access my internal network. I've used it with Windows, Mac and Linux computers, plus with WD My Cloud home and pro. If you need a proper file explorer on your android system, this is it.

  35. guest-avatar

    Works flawlessly, beautiful design, lightweight, powerful file manager. What can i say more? This app is abseloutly fantastic. With just this free app you can do almost anything addition with the iap. But, in the other hand, the archive extractor is outdated. Many rar files left unable to be opened or extracted. That's my only problem from this app. What else can you complain when you able to fully customize the app and it's even ad free?

  36. guest-avatar

    This is the best file manager for android. It's clean, have many functions yet not bloated, and the policy of no-ads and no-tracking is admirable.

  37. guest-avatar

    Used to be really good, but seems to be unsupported now. I had a problem with the FX Connect, which used to work fine, and I've sent two emails over the past month or so, and never received any response at all, not even an acknowledgement that they received it. I'll resubmit my review and rating if they ever respond.

  38. guest-avatar

    Pretty good except when searching and accessing folder from another app. It defaults to listing files in alphabetical order. Very annoying. Should default to last modified.

  39. guest-avatar

    I like FX, but I wish to have folder sizes shown, as in old version. Without it I don't want to upgrade.

  40. guest-avatar

    I used to like this but its nothing but constant errors. Reinstalling the app. Remounting the cards, re-applying write permissions.. none of it works always a constant "Error ... Internal" that's it.. no explanations nothing so even with write permissions I cant delete A SINGLE FILE. Yet the default file explorer has no issues at all. Useless... Unless its fixed.

  41. guest-avatar

    First impressions it looked somewhat plain and simple but WOW! was i wrong.As a "ES File explorer" user from start ,never used anything but it. After diggin in(FX) settings ..i found themes, the translucent options caught my eye...it also has the dumb dark mode(not for me). It's my go to file explorer now,I absolutely LOVE it! Thankyou guys.

  42. guest-avatar

    I've been using FX Plus for years. I love the split screen function and frequently use it to copy files between my phone and my PC.

  43. guest-avatar

    Shubham Maheshwari


    Very bad,.. please don't use this,... features are good but when u use it,it demage ur memory card as well as your phone memory too..due to of that no need to use ..I lost my 32gb card and data because of this software,..also create lots of problems when you use this..,no doubts strong features but jab self destroyed karne lage chezo ko to behtar hai use na kiya jaaye.. don't use and this is genuine review,..if developer work on that and resolve this problem than please told me I love to use it

  44. guest-avatar

    Excellent file manager and respects user privacy. One small improvement would be to add support for 7z compression, which I use a lot.

  45. guest-avatar



    Possibly the best file manager today. The only problem is i cannot find the "Enable SD Kitkat write workaround" in the file management settings. Is it no longer supported?

  46. guest-avatar

    Great app i wish it had no write access restrictions at least when i have granted root access.Please make the inbuilt video player much more low cpu speed friendly as es file explorer pro has no issue running smoothly.

  48. guest-avatar

    I have been using this for almost 5 years!! I love this app helps me navigate through files very easily! I think you should use it too.

  49. guest-avatar

    I've choosen this file manager after lot of exploring and I'm using the fx plus version since few days on my phone and android tv. And I must say it's a smooth and great experience. Just a little suggestion though, please add the shared folder in cloud storage too. (eg. Shared with me folder in Google Drive)

    akula Guru datta


    I fell love with this App , I can't understand why it is so underrated. Google drive ,Ftp server connection and many more .... Perfect for programmers....;)

  51. guest-avatar

    Love this app, I used to be frustrated by the lack of a "select all" option, but they added one. Definitely 5 stars otherwise.

  52. guest-avatar

    my file got missing after using this file explorer. i cut from download folder and paste to my hdd external. finishing paste and i eject my hdd external. but, after that i oppened using pc, my file got missing. i try many time and same as before. please fixed this. my file very important to me. i not give 5 because this. if u can fix this bug, i can give u 5 star

  53. guest-avatar

    Purchased via the in-app, and guess what... the app does not upgrade. Uninstalled and reinstalled, same #&%*! I have received no notification from google play, but my account has been debited haha. No feedback from the developper at all after I shot an email couple of days ago. Waste of time.

  54. guest-avatar

    Despite the improvements "Internal Error" occurs, Public Key Authentication does't work (does work with ConnectBot). Animations for cosmetic sake are not necassary.

    Mr Elye Diaz, SR


    Will review my 1* after I get a razonable support. This app has been my main source of file management in my NVIDIA Shield TV. Now its not letting me sign in not matter how many times I un install or clear data, cache etc. If there's any problems with google or whatever reason, just let me know.

  56. guest-avatar

    Good app. It will be best if you add feature like hidden cabinate and wirelessly transfer your file to PC. This feature is available in Asus file manager app please take reference of this app and try to add this feature in app. This will make Fx explorer is one of the best file manager on android. Thanks.

  57. guest-avatar

    Best file manager I've used on Android. Period. Does everything, works without any issues and has great add on features like media viewing and playing. Plus, great network connections for accessing file shares (SMB, WebDAV, FTP, etc). Can't recommend this app enough.

  58. guest-avatar

    I had the ad version on my tablet and I paid to upgrade it to no ads full version. Now I want to put the no ads full version on my Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus phone but Google Play says that I have to pay the $2.99 again. Can someone please help me? I'll change my review if I can get some tech support. Thanks.

  59. guest-avatar

    Can't speak to all of the features but from a purely UX perspective the best file explorer I've used on any platform. A lot of work has clearly gone into usability and quality of life and it shows. Easy recommend

  60. guest-avatar

    Worked great until I bought it, then cannot connect to smb share. Funny story, I'm connected to that very smb share on another device at the exact same time that fx tells me it can't connect. Well, off to find a new file explorer.

  61. guest-avatar

    Adding Google drive on Nvidia shield is broken, can't authenticate. 5 stars when it gets fixed

  62. guest-avatar

    Why A fX Connect isn'r not working on my samsung galaxy note 10 plus ... i can't connect other devices ... Please Fix it ASAP

  63. guest-avatar

    Found this app excellent especially for use with external sd card transfers and ability to show e-books for reading

  64. guest-avatar

    Perfect. Quickly switched from another 'popular' explorer. No ads. Great design and usability. Can browse the /system folder which is amazing. Love it. Dear developers, please do not bloat it with unnecessary functions. Keep it simple like it already is. No need for cleaners and file analysis tools. In my opinion, the text reader and built-in media player is also not needed. That should be left for third party apps. But I'm not complaining. It is good utility nonetheless.

  65. guest-avatar

    I've used this app frequently over the last few months and feel able to honestly comment: 1. UI is aesthetically gorgeous. 2. The app is totally user-friendly, without the need for intrusive 'user tips/hints'. 3. Navigation to all features of the software is straight-forward and not at all confusing. 4. It allows the user to explore the Android system to whatever depth/access-level allowable. 5. Extremely stable. 6. I use the free version, (it has some functions limited, but tbh I dont really need these anyway), and find It has all, (if not more), the functions one would expect of a good quality file manager. To sum up: If you are in need of a file manager, be sure to try this one out - you won't be disappointed :-)!

    Seems OK for free but i am wondering if searching for hidden folders is included in the free version. I am on the 7 day plus trial at mo because es file explorer pro has disappeared from play store and my purchases. 3rd paid app in 18 months to go grrrrr 😐 If the devs can answer that question for me i will be grateful 😐 .

    Rather Than Focusing On Animations, Developer Must Have Included - 1. Video Player Missing ASPECT RATIO Feature - Option Like 16:9, Best Fit, Original, Fill Screen, etc. are Required. 2. In MATERIAL DARK Theme - File Selection Colors Should Be More CONTRASTING To Differentiate Selected From Selected Items.

    Great file explorer, but webdav doesn't work from corporate sharepoint. I've tried on Total Commander with same config and everything was OK. I cannot resume downloading/uploading from/to netwotk services! Please, fix this!

    This app used to work beautifully well. Now the FX connect feature does not work at all and generates many errors. I get no response when I request support from the developer.

    I use this app as my main file manager. I like it so far, but i have these issues that should be taken care of: - over smb (not sure for local files) after editing and saving a file that is in Windows EOL format (CR+LF) the file will be automatically converted to Unix EOL format (CR only), this is quite annoying - text editor does not have the possibility to enable line numbers like the text viewer (why?!) - network credentials are not remembered during a session.

    very good app but needs sum changes in UI, like adding tabs for different paths and adding menu for holding touch.its very annoying when touch and hold on file, nothing happens at all. sorry for my bad English

    Excellent File Explorer... Easy to use and Nice Interface.... The Better File explorer for android....

    needs ability to cast to TV. Needs a shortcut function to sync two folders (SFTP to local).

    While the overall performance of this app is very good. I found it useful because it can show me all files according to their extension except documents, which is also my biggest disappointment about this app. My documents folder is always empty, so I have to go every time to the main storage and other sub folders to find the document file I needed. I hope there will be a update to fix this or else I have to buy again another app to do that.

    Very complete app with tons of options and features, and all this without annoying ads. Definitely the best file manager for Android.

  78. guest-avatar

    I use it almost every day, in place of built-in and pre-loaded file managers. Excellent.

    so great app & so fantastic, i can do anything extract play music play videos, extract packs, so awesome app!!

    I love the simple layout, neat and tidy. Only issue I have is being able to link SharePoint. I have been able to link OneDrive but am unable to work out how to link SharePoint. Sadly this could be deal breaker for me, which I hope is not the case. Emails to the developer have gone unanswered this far, could anybody help?

    Excellent! Have been a long term user of ES File Explorer Pro - But FX File Explorer is much better! Very pleasing interface; easy to use; I like the keyring password for better security to LAN & cloud files; works well in accessing files on NAS drives etc; FX Connect works really well in transferring files from one android device to another (non rooted as well) etc.etc.

    I like this app a lot, enough that I paid for the Pro version. But I am only giving it 3 stars because I am taking off 1 star for each of its 2 faults. First, it won't open azw3 files in FBReader Pro, even though the latter DOES support the new system (and Google's own Files app does). And secondly it misbehaves when I slot in a USB flash drive. Plus the app developer never replied when I emailed about both issues, which shows a poor attitude to customers - shame given that it is mostly so good.

    This app is dangerous for moving files from internal storage to microsd. It has destroyed 4 microsd of mine. I have used this app years before till now. I've concluded this after my last microsd's been destroyed. I think deleting or copying in microsd also harmfull and dangerous

    Very good app. Would be perfect if SMB3 and for SMB also encrypted connections were supported.

  85. guest-avatar

    Clean and easy to use design. No bloat at all! Really happy I found this app after the whole ES file explorer scandal

  86. guest-avatar

    Wow I've just played around for a bit and have fallen in love. Very cool app. I just used system root to edit some system files. I love the split screen. User interface is clean and friendly. It even writes and reads .txt files. I was looking around for an app that does that and I found it in FX file Explorer by accident. Likely going to purchase full version.

  87. guest-avatar

    Been using this app for years. Has some major bugs as of recent. I am unable to delete files on external sd card. And I've already granted write permissions. I am also unable to rename files. I bought pro years ago. Unfortunately I am looking at other file explorers since this problem. Fix these bugs, I've already tried other file explorers and am able to do these tasks with ease. As soon as you fix this problem, I'll happily give a 5 star rating.

  88. guest-avatar

    Sadly, I've uninstalled it. It refuses to write to SD card or network despite my having granted access. Had no response from developers to my query about this. Pity - as it looked like an app well worth paying for ... At a second attempt I got it to access a network share, but any alterations to a text file on a network share cannot be saved. If that can be overcome perhaps I'd buy it, otherwise I shall have to make the best of it as it is. The free CS can save to net !

    New update doesn't work at all on my phone. No reply from "support" email. Not even a vacation responder, just silent abandonment. Update: Still no support. Email address is a black hole. FX was among the best before this unpopular, broken, abandoned version. Oh, well. I guess three bucks for three years was still a good deal. (Yes, that's right. The paid version doesn't buy support.)

    Perfect app. Needs a bit of learning since UI is different from file/command explorer. I use it with root & extensions (paid) and it's great for networking.

    Best file manager I have ever seen, I just wish I had known it existed before. It does everything I need in a simple way I like the way you can manage all folders you have from the main window.

    I can't delete external storage cause youre app Don't know how to get permission and every thing else in this app is fine. I found the app usefull and it helped me a lot. And the Design is cool

  93. guest-avatar

    Better than the best file explorers and they too without ads. Unlimited customisation ability.

  94. guest-avatar

    Very good , but fx connect not working with S9 plus on android 10.

  95. guest-avatar

    Can't edit large file (1 MB) "load failed: file size exceeds available memory"

  96. guest-avatar

    Well done! coming from ES File explorer pro, this is a fantastic replacement. the only thing that would be nice is to add gesture support to enable switching between open windows by swiping instead of choosing from a list. would also be nice to see transfer speed when copying network files. 5 stars all the way! if you are a former ES file explorer user, I think you will find this a perfect replacement.

  97. guest-avatar

    Best Explorer on play store. Simple and does everything a file manager supposed to do without any BS. Also dark theming available which is right up my street as far as looks go. Fantastic work Dev 👍🏽

  98. guest-avatar

    I love it no annoying ads and also it is very fast thank you

  99. guest-avatar

    Excellent! Raced to the store for a playstore card so i could purchase the app within the hour. Very useful. This is THE must have app for rooted devices. Thank you. Love it. After using it for a long period of time, still think it's the best. I don't rsally edit system files so much if i can hekp it, but it's a good way to quickly test ideas and use them in a kitchen so the phone operates well. If i could fix one thing it'd be split screen copy and pasting. A bit more room on the toolbar :)

    Stopped working on my Shield TV after the most recent Shield TV update. When it's working, it's the best file exploren for android TV. After the most recent Shield TV Experience software update version 8.0.0 ( I get a message that the app needs to be unistalled and then reinstalled from the Play Store. However, doing so changes nothing. I have reinstalled multiple times and cleared data to no avail. The app now gails to access the device properly.
