* 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

* Zip, Tar, GZip, Bzip2, 7zip archive creators and extractors

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

  • Major update. Major changes to UI aesthetic, icons, and animations throughout the app. Improved performance. Fast-scrolling support throughout the app. Significant updates to "recents", sort-by-kind, image/video/app sections. Reduced app size by 25% via optimizations and vector graphics.
  • 8.0.1: Minor fixes, mixed rectangle/round icon theme option.

    Oct 2020 App increasingly errors copying files June 2020 Reducing stars. For a long time this app refuses to open media files with other apps. Text editor needs work. No support for OTG ugh. Copy files is slow. It's no longer my must have. -----End---- This has been my go to explorer for a donkey's age. When I used to root different roms, even now first app to re/install. Few things are a bit funky, perhaps getting dated, but its a real winner. I'd had it so many years, I'd be lost without it.

    apk One feature that I love the most here is the Archive Viewer, I can see the thumbnails on my .zip archived photos and browse between them without extracting them first! while other apps aren't showing any thumbnail for archived pictures. Next, the UI is beautiful and theme option is a really nice touch although I wish there's more colour palette to choose. For years, I've tried this app along with other file managing apps but I kept coming back to this one.

    Absolutely amazing! Hands down, the best File Manager on Android. Great looking interface, without lacking in any functionality you would want from a File Manger. Works with Android TV as well, making it easy to transfer and manage files on my Nvidia Shield with it's great interface. And best of all, it's completely free, with no ads! If you get as much out of this app as I have, consider supporting the developers. 5 Stars, would recommend to everyone.

    i really enjoy this file browser, but it's lacking in some areas. you can't move files around, you can only copy and paste them. moving files is kinda a basic thing when comes to a file browser. this file browser can open .zip files in the app without extracting them, but can't do the same with .rar file formats. other then that i like the app.

    Fantastic in every regard. One of the best apps in the Play Store. Intuitive and does everything you'd want, especially with the Plus add-on. Supports SMB very well. Let's you learn about the structure of the various Android file systems and where things are stored. Buy the Plus add-on to support the developer!

    Best for giving high quality options for android systems, you basically gonna have full control over your phone. No need of separate photo, video, audio players. But editing thing for photo, video, audio needs to initiate for full experince and this will increase the app quality, and hope we get a option to search by path eg. "/storage/emulatedstorage0". Besh wishes from my side, thank you.

    Not bad but could use improvements 1. A option to set default screen (aka i just want to see main storage when launch app) 2. Ftp could use a better browse cause the router storage never appeared.... 3. A way to create a hide list with password protection 4. Maybe a way to encript files? 5. A way for it to remove junk files 6. Maybe swipe gestures to change open windows and set default locations that will allways be open I guess try looking at es file explorer for reference

    A very useful file manager, with various file viewers/editors built in, and optional rooting support. I have used it for years and only recently found one missing feature - when choosing MULTIPLE files from another app (when said app has sent a chooser intent with EXTRA_ALLOW_MULTIPLE set to true), FX does not allow you to select multiple files. Unfortunately, the only file chooser I'm aware of that does support this, is Android's stock file chooser. For various reasons I can't use the stock chooser - please, add support for this.

    this is the best manager ive ever used hands down. But if i may suggest a feature request it would be the function to batch rename files. It really needs this. (Edit) after some research with the app it will not move files at all on the system memory. If i CUT a file and try to paste it somewhere else like DOWNLOADS it says failed access denied...I gave it full permissions.

    No recycle bin. If you delete by accident - it's gone forever. That's a deal breaker for an otherwise very good app. All the best file managers have recycle bins. Have been searching for a good ES replacement, but lack of this feature makes this a loser, runner-up. Hasn't been updated in a year. Looks abandoned. So won't hold my breath hoping for changes.

    Very good file manager! Still can't figure out how to change preview icon sizes... Would love to pin windows to the left menu and it seems rather wide taking up valuable screen space for browsing. Nice to have security protection on passwords, but having to authenticate every 1/2hr? Would be good option disable that if you have security on devices.

    I have tried many file explorers and this is the only one I found which doesn't have what I don't need. Simple interface, not highly complex settings and stuff. Perfect for my needs. The UI needs some polish though. For example some text and menu items are not aligned properly and stuff like that. Anyways a great file manager.!

    The best file manager. Only one issue: if you transfer files to OTG Drive and if OTG doesn't have enough space, it deletes all the data on the drive. The app development is dead I think. Coz, no update since 1 year and no reply from the developer when I contacted them over email.

    Thank you for helping me search for the truth. Saw your update on xda btw. Just.. thank u. You have the only explorer app that does things and asks permission to do things correctly. The amount of detail and hardwork you put in to this, is more useful than any hidden Google API, service or feature they've stuffed into my phone.. (not including the ones I've yet to find/access)

    The only reason I didn't buy yet it it's because is missing few options like 1.Put icons & video thumbnails inside a nice square frame. 3. Make a quicker way to copy and paste bc is not likable, and add all icons 4.Open a new tab is not friendly at all and makes me forget that option actually exists. 5.Copying fles speed is horrible 6.The theme and design for the app is not good, try to do like Astro, or an explorer more solid and clean 7.Give file size info behind folders.

    Quite decent and full featured file manager, with actual multiple tabs/open folders, root access, builtin zip archive support for compression and unpacking. Only downside for me are the visuals. If it could better match Android native material/ design it would be great. Missing features: Share files by FTP and easy Select All Files functionality through the browser WebDav web interface

    The only issues keeping me from giving it a perfect five is the lack of a bulk rename option, and the fact that you only have the option to overwrite when you move a file to a folder that has a file of the same name. The latter is particularly annoying.

    Why does it install the Fx TextEdit without the users' knowledge despite the fact that in no way it helps either the user as well as the smooth functioning of FX file explorer app. Allow the users to remove this junk and I will give it a 5 stars. Otherwise under the disguise of privacy, the app may be collecting the users' private data without the users' knowledge and proving to be no different than some Chinese apps on the Play Store which exists only to peek into the users' data.

    Awesome awesome awesome! I left ES for a number of reasons, and this is even better! The only real complaint I have is not having an FTP server built in, but the web server works well enough. It's probably more accessible for less techie users, too. The file management is great and intuitive. Can be a little tedious to select tons of files, but that's not unique to FX, at all. So far the best file manager on Android, and I've tried them all. The plus addon is worth it, too!

    I would have been more inclined to use this app if the icon looked more polished. It has too much detail. A simple folder, etc would be enough. I don't know. Anyway, only had it for a day and I already love it. It has so much functionality and doesn't appear to have bugs or anything negative about it. Can connect to ftp Google cloud and has root access. Does everything was file explorer did and then some. Also is privately owned and allegedly pro-privacy orientated. A++ good design. Love it!

    Almost perfect. Certainly one of the better ones, I tried a few and bought the full version of this. No ads. Easy to use and navigate, I like the split screen feature. Reliably copies large files and directories off my network without dropping. I say almost perfect because it's lacking NFS support which I would like, but CIFS and ftp work flawlessly.

    Definitely one of the better functioning and looking file manager. Been using it for years and is reliable for everything I've needed it for. Started with the free version and moved on to the full and haven't regretted it since. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the time since it's been updated. Been a good while since the last. Hopefully it'll continue to be updated and supported cause there's nothing much that compairs.

    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.

    Fx File Explorer is beautifully conceived and presented, but unfortunately I had very bad experience. I bought it through in app purchase, but could see no clear signs that the app was upgraded at all. I asked for refund, so that I can re-purchase "officially" from Playstore. Google refused to refund. Worst of all, I wrote 3-4 mails to the developer asking for clarification and also for support for enabling write access to SD card. No reply so far.

    Bumping it down to 3 stars because after more than a year of using this app, there's still an annoying lack of a certain capability. When you mass copy (or mass cut) and mass paste, and 1 or 2 of the files you're pasting has the same name as the target location, your only options are "overwrite/merge" the file in question, or cancel the entire operation. PLEASE GIVE THE OPTION TO RE-NAME THE COPIED FILE. OR SKIP THE FILE. It is extremely annoying.

    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. One thing: In some devices, if you go to Root (System) and go to proc, scroll down, and your system will restart.

    Hi Devs, working brilliantly on Pixel 3 android 10. Can sftp and smb2 into multiple network machines, haven't tested over webz yet. Purchased the upgrade to keep these features. Small request, under the special folders, any chance to have a feature to "hide" certain folders so others using the app don't see the thumbnails as a result? Ta, :)

    Amazing App 👍i love it. One problem that's really annoying me, That is when you move any type of data between Main Storage (internal storage) And Media Storage (SDHC) Or to Cloud storage it doesn't keep the Original Time Stamp which very important for images and videos because you don't want all your digital data on current date and time, it's important to us it keeps in original time stamp. You can turn of the update file changes infx, but it doesn't work for cut & move & upload to the cloud.

    Not impressed with landscape splitview UI. Barely any room to work on either screen. Split view has to be set each time. 'Remember last settings' needed. App requires more clicks to get to where you need to go as there's no default opening window that could be customized. Since I purchased I will wait for update though for now I use another explorer.

    Pretty good for day-to-day file management - flexible, customisable, useful extra features available for purchase. Unfortunately, cannot get it it to recall last view and have to explicitly set display to 'usage' each time, which is mildly irksome. Doesn't seem to offer option of being a server (ftp, https, etc.), so have to use another file manager for that, but purchasable add-ons make it a flexible client. Day-to-day my go-to manager unless I need to do seriously heavy lifting via ftp/etc.

    When I am at a remote location and connect to my home via my own vpn server, fx can access my home lan devices if I put in the device ip. However if i use fx to scan the local lan to find a device using dhcp, fx does not scan the proper lan subnet. It scans the subnet of my network carrier, not the home lan. Thus I cannot locate dhcp devices and connect to them. Is there a fix?

    Text editor loses file contents once you switch to another app. If you have one text file opened, switch to Chrome return to FX you get a blank file (new file). Also, more annoyingly, the file open dialog lacks a "recently opened" option to return to a text file you were editing minutes ago.

    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.

    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 :-)!

    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.

    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 !

    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."

    Do not use this APP if you have Android 10 and use SD cards/External Storage, it can only see/read the menu option to enable/disable write/delete access are missing, and if you try to write/delete if ask you to enable this via menu !!!!

    One of the most intuitive file manager out there. I tried a tons of them, big names and obscure apk... There's 'nothing clearer. The major "con" here is that you can't unzip a file.

    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 :)

    Very good file manager but two issues. 1. Need a option to rename copied files of same name and skip that file. 2. App name should be in full, FX File Explorer.

    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.

    Out of the FE I've used, I've found this to be the best and have used it w/o any problems for the past year. File transfer through NFC, SMB and OTG have all been hassel free. Fairly feature rich overall. & @ an affordable price for the paid ver. esp fond of the priv policy. Just thought I'd add my review given the recent update. The only criticism I have is that I actually preferred the old icons. It's harder to differentiate with Grid View. Section is ok. Also .ogg format is not recognised.

    Clean functional interface. Works to copy files from FTP or SMB share in my house quite well. BONUS: I bought the pro upgrade on one phone to keep the network copy feature. When I swapped to a new phone and re-downloaded the app -- it's still PAID FOR and I got the Pro version with just a single payment. Very pleased with that; most apps with in-app upgrade only upgrade on a single handset and when you get a new handset you have to pay again. Very very very very pleased with this app. Will recommend it to everyone.

    This is by far the best file manager I've had the pleasure of working with. However, the latest update has made the UI, quite frankly, ugly. Besides the cosmetic issues, for some reason the latest update also replaced the ability to sort by file extension with the ability to sort by file "type". While this IS a helpful feature, it's not quite granular enough (ex: animated gifs get lumped in with static images) and it shouldn't replace file extension sorting.

    i do love this app, alot like the old es file explorer (which i dont know what happened to that). Although... i did the in-app purchase of the 2.99 where the media and network thing but when i go to the play store the fx license key thing still 2.99 as if i didnt even purchase anything. Update to where the media player has repeat and shuffle. and the video player has sort of the same attribute as vlc? that would make this app at least for me the most awesome file explorer ever 😁

    Have had this app for years (Pro version). Has been very reliable until recently. Now when I try to connect to my network pc, it is hit or miss. More often than not I have to restart my phone before it will connect. I rely upon this function. I emailed the developer, but have not heard back. And yes, I tried the suggestions from the FAQ. I expect more from a purchased product.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hey not bad not bad at all. I think there could be some easier methods of copying and pasting etc but its good. Also when I make a new document in a folder it seems to create an outdated word document, so word flips out and wants me to save a new copy blah blah blah, kinda redundant. But overall I am impressed by this file manager. Just setup nice shortcuts and use the split screen mode and you're winning!

    This is a Very good file explorer / file manager . But the split window feature isn't enough. I need multiple windows, something like ES file explorer's multiple windows, where you can swipe left and right to go to desired folders, this is extremely powerful feature for fast & fluid file exploring and file management. That's the biggest thing that has made me hold on to it, I want to move away from ES, but keep coming back to it (remove reinstall it few times since that malware tragedy) .

    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

    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!

    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.

    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. 👍👍👍👍👍

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?

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    The file explorer is OK, but the text editor is infuriating to the point that I wish I could have all the wasted time of my life using it back again. The most egregious problem is that switching context away from the application loses all changes made since the last change. Given that switching context in Android can happen in many involuntary situations, that's just an absolute fail on the part of any tool like this.

    I paid for this years back. One of the reasons I cannot use the app, is that sharing text from the browser to FX gives an error, and what's really diappointing, is that a free app CX File Explorer does. ES File Explorer fails just like FX. The free ones are outdoing the paid ones with very simple features. I don't care about bells and whistles if the basics aren't covered first. As for all the cool features you've built into this, I wouldn't know them, because the simple feature has limited use.

    Good app with minor improvements required. I have brought this app because of their simple UI, but one thing i found difficult is that the search menu and pop up menu while copying deleteing etc is placed in the top which is finding difficult for me. As everyone one loves to do simple activites with one hand, but due to placement of menu at the top we will be forced to use both hands. Hope develpers wiill take this suggestion seriously.

    After es was taken off the play store, my first reaction was to get it from my titanium backup. In the meantime I started looking elsewhere. When my phone became ridiculously unresponsive, even on an 8 core pixel2, I tracked down the pig to the es app locker. So I've dumped es and switched to fx. I am seriously glad I did. For smb, it is seriously faster than es. The user interface is also a big improvement.

    I don't see where is the MAJOR change they talk about in the changelog. Except for the new ugly icon set and not-so-smooth scrolling effect and animations, all the rest is pretty much the same... A great and solid file explorer though, but I'll definitely NEVER understand why developpers universally feel the urge to change things for the worse, especially when there's nothing wrong to change in the first place...
