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.

  • * Fixes for Dropbox and WebDAV/OwnCloud
  • * Minor UI updates

Reviews From google play store

Wow,... bought pro immediately. Samsung a5, oreo. Edit, I am amazed how well this works on my t9 and t95z Chinese android tv boxes. it is now a go to app.


This has got to be the most amazing file explorer i have ever used. Simply put it, the best. Like how it display the information on folders and partitions without even going into them. This is the only app that i came across that allows you to browse in the data directory of the device as a non root user and copy and paste not only the base apk itself of an app, but also the split apks along with it as well!! For that, 5 stars!!


This is my main application to manage my files. I own all the major file browsers. Material design and material animation with faenza icon theme is the ultimate in visual eye candy period bar none! The network switches is top notch and gets practically no errors when using it for file transfers even when it switches from wifi to cellular. This is the only file browser that keeps going for data transfers. Nas friendly through ftpes and webdavs if the certificate is valid for webdavs. The ultimate!


This app is in serious need of an.update. In Android Pie, apps cannot be uninstalled directly from app anymore. Inside the network on NAS devices quite often there are no thumbnails made, and because of that the Photos open quite slow and one cannot swope left and right to see the next. WebDav connection is buggy and crippels the wireless stick that i have that buggs in and looses connection (this does not happen with other File Managers). Their is not security to enter the app.


Missing basic features. This app was recommended on a few sites i visited and has good reviews but it can't do basic operations such as extracting zip files or searching for extensions. I tried searching for .pdf extension in a location i know has pdfs but there were no results. other file explores haven't had this issue.


This is a great file manager app. I've been using it for about 5 months now and my experience haa been mostly positive. Two things I've noticed: (1) I can't open .rar files and (2) you can (accidentally) copy a folder into itself, basically losing all files in that folder.


Intuitive and seemed to work well on Android TV until I tried to copy a load of files off Google drive onto my Shield TV. Then it said operation complete but when I check most of the files are missing. It was 1.4gb of data, with loads of relatively small files, but why couldn't it achieve the full copy???


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.


with NO Add and its Clean UI, this app is the Smartest, most Beautiful, Advanced, Innovative, Informative, Customisable and also Fastest "FILE MANAGER" which Can NOT Manage Files on "EXTERNAL SD CARD" !!! (es file explorer can). the developer should do something about it. after installing I was excited then disappointed! it also needs a cash cleaner instead of note editor! extra functions like transfer, etc can be moved to its add-on to reduce the premissions required for main app


THIS APP NEEDS A ZIP FILE EXTRACT AND THE ONLY OTHER PROBLEM I HAVE WITH THIS MANAGER IS THAT IT DOESN'T SHOW HOW MANY FILES ARE IN A FOLDER. I PUT ONE STAR JUS TO GRAB YOUR ATTENTION..IT'S DEFINITELY A 4 STAR APP AT THE MOMENT BUT WITH THOSE OTHER FEATURES IT'S EASILY A 5 STAR APP


One of the best file utilities for Android that I have EVER used. The only problems are with the version permissions and the app has no control over that. If I could root the system it would be perfect again, but Google and LG insist on protecting me from myself. App is fantastic.


Sorry, but your built in file extractor is awful. I wanted to extract a file that was a little over 400MB and it was going to take an hour! Any other program would accomplish this task easily in under a minute. And while there are stand alone apps that can extract files on the play store, why would I use those if I was going to pay to use your file manager that has the feature built in?


Although having 0 ads was amazing (Thank you), this free app is sooooo basic. If you want to do anything else apart from viewing local files, you have to pay money. X-Plore is a truly free alternative all singing and dancing app. Thanks but no, thanks.


Hi I really love this app and have been using it for so long now. The only thing is that for the search function, i only want to search within 1 folder and I have specified so in the search filters but the app still searches the whole entire device.... Naturally such a search would take a long time to load. So yeah


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 !


Only one minor quibble - Rearrange Bookmarks doesn't work - (Might be an upgrade feature). Otherwise excellent. A good replacement for the dreadful CZ File Manager built into the Lenovo tablets!! Now I can disable the wretched thing and ignore it! 😀


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.


This is one of my all time favorite apps but even after this fresh update it still has this specific problem. I get a zip file in my email. I choose to open it with FX and it just presents a bunch of text instead of the images in the zip file. ES Browser opens it with no problem. If I save the zip file first to my phone, then FX opens it nicely. Hopefully this problem will get fixed at some point because I still keep ES around for some zip files. I'm finally satisfied with the image viewer although ES is still better. Overall though, FX is best I've used. ES killed itself with extremely intrusive ads and general ugliness, otherwise it worked well enough.


UI loks nice but that's all. Web interface keeps failing. It either stops showing folders or it fails when uploading (This application has been stopped due to an error. Invalid response received from server: 404 Exception processing request: a=wiPBx9gM6MoU5Xg1H%2FCox5t50MflQOCBpQW1liPr%2FnE%3D&c=jexcwqlk_gxkjok&y=0nextapp.fx.sharing.web.service.NotFoundException at nextapp.fx.sharing.webimpl.HostImpl.b(Unknown Source) at nextapp.fx.sharing.webimpl.HostImpl.a(Unknown Source) ...). Half a year ago and still broken.


Great app but it has a serious limitation that impedes productivity. If you launch an app such as Word or Excel for a file stored on SD Card from FX, you cannot quickly save your edits. Only "Save As" will work and that increase interaction time. I ended up using a competing file manager. This seems to be a recent flaw. Emailing the developer did not yield any response.
