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 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!

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???


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

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

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.

Very good app. Already surpassed ES File Explorer. I made sure to take the file apart and look around for any tracking stuff or anything else that could compromise privacy of this app. Found nothing of concern and am pleased to make use of this app on daily basis from now on. Thank you for your effort!

keeps crashing on some image gallery dirs.. like avatar maker cats, camera uploads (dropbox link), my pics subdir i made, some picsart dirs, and some network shares.

Very Good Explorer. However App lacks some important features. Instead of split screen the storage spaces and folders should be able to open in different panels. Sliding the panels give access to cut, copy, paste files and folders to different storage including USB storage.

Fantastic file manager especially for all the customization it allows. The only annoying thing is the lack of the scroll bar, which would be very useful for folders with a lot of content. If this feature will be added I would sure rate it with 5 stars.

Best modern file manager app.. Bring back the "rapid scroll" bar when scrolling up/down. I just updated from an older version now its gone. You know, when a folder has lots of files, you start scrolling and there pops out a scroll bar that you can drag to the bottom.. THAT.
