Reviews From google play store

This was a terrific app in its day. There's an updated version simply called "Solid Explorer". It surpasses the Classic app in every way, has a relevant feel & is better suited for more current versions of Android. Please consider using the newer up to date Solid Explorer & you'll be much happier.

Good app but not that intuitive to navigate around the various folders

Look good, little bit old. LAN (SMB), imortant for me, work but setup is little bit complicated.

I like that app and have been using it for over a year. I decided to buy pro version and have had no negative issues.

It won't delete or move files on SD card. I'm certain it's a permission issue. It doesn't even request permission when I try, it just gives a "Operation failed" error.

does everything for me and i am not a hacker. so, from copying files to viewing the properties and searching contents, everything is perfectly good for me. Thank you developer. i will be switching to pro soon !

Great app. Just +/- 4GB from my internal storage which was a total cache junk that even iManager can't find or delete.

Doesn't show external SD card anymore. Also no access to external sd. Please fix this. Switched to another file manager. LG G5, Android 8.0 Oreo.

Yet another licensing problem with the app. 2 emails sent to developer no answer. Really annoying to pay for an app and see ads on the bottom

best app but only one problem, file can't be moved from main storeage to sd card.

only need drop box and other drive support similar to new solid explorer.

The Best, but sd didn't work in Android 8, please fix it, thanks

Why not show SD Card. On Lenovo Z5 (Android 8.1)

Acurate high precision file size viewer same across Windows Ubuntu and Android 8.1

Good interface. Beauty in classic way

cut a folder from internal storage and could NOT figure out any way yo paste it to SD card .... getting good old ES explorer

I should grant permission every time I want to move file from or to SD card 😞

Excellent app!!! You'll never regret having this.

Can't read SD cards data

Could you add Zoho Work Drive? Would give five star if you had Zoho Work Drive as a cloud storage option!

Clean easy interface great app

No thumbnail is showing

Awesome better than es explorer..

Such an excellent file manager that i seen, different look which was really attractive 😍

The perfect file manager. Period.

it's too slow

I Love Love Love it !!!!!!

Jus to old and don't work right

Has never let me down in 5 years.

Do not cut and paste file internal memori to sd card

Solid! - lives up to its name.

does not open😫😠😠😠

Extract anything I thing

Sick wit it

Edit: Malwarebytes is catching an adware and won't let me install. There isn't a file explorer out there as convenient to use as this one. The layout is just so much more natural. It feels as if you're browsing your files on a computer. I've been using this since the first day the beta was on the market. I bought it the minute it was for sale. Can't say enough good things about this.

Don't make the mistake of buying from this developer twice. Bought this app and it doesn't work across different platforms. To edit Nougat you will need they force you to upgrade to the 2.0 app. Everything's about getting the money out of the customers pocket.. no one's really into what doing you initially buy the app in the first place anymore.

Nice app. Very clean and fairly intuitive. The only feature missing: I would love the ability to program gestures to perform actions (like ES does with the little bubble.) Adding that would be amazing, because one thing this app suffers from is navigation. Another problem - I followed the link in the description to download the 2.0 version, but cannot do so, instead of the download button I have the message saying "this version not compatible with your device" device is a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (updated 100%, not rooted.) This is the first and only time I've seen that message on the Play Store, after years of downloading hundreds of apps.

Guys you are just brilliant in this app.Only thing that stops me from buying unlocker is lack of multiwindow option (in some explorers it supports upto 10 windows open ) and space analyzer like in solid explorer 2. 5Nov 2018: Not able to write on micro sd on my new oreo device. Same is possible from Solid explorer 2.0.

This file manager should be rated higher than other respective apps. If you put a little time to get familiar with this app, you will see that you can do more things than a simple copy paste! Power users will love this app.

Stop working on note 8 oreo. Now it don't show chinese text anymore. And can't delete file from micro sd even after giving permission. It was working fine till it broke. Probably they are not supported anymore as last update was last year?

It cannot delete or move anything on sd card. I wrote a few emails to dev but totally no response. And unfortunately I have a paid version. On previous phone it worked.

Used to be my most favorite file explorer on my Android phones, until I switched to the new one: Solid Explorer. Has more features than I would ever expect from a file explorer on a phone to have and reminds me the days of Windows Mobile Pocket PCs.

I love this classic version more than the "modern" version. But the only thing that is not working on my Samsung (Marshmallow) is "Cut" file or folder..

Nice app. It is love at first sight. The only shortcoming is the unavailability of this app while sharing. X-plore file manager provides this.

Need a fix for oreo update, can't write to sd card "operation failed". Modern version works great but I liked classic one. Please fix it for OREO.

I can't view my files on SD card. Error says ' Access Denied'.

رابط کاربری خیلی خوبی داره اگه تبلیغاتش کمتر بود بهترم می شد ، من برای انتقال ویدئو و عکس روی کروم کست پلاگین کروم کست این فایل منیجر رو نصب کردم، خوبم کار میکنه

Please can we have an update so that Nougat is supported on Galaxy S7. This is my favourite file Explorer and I really miss be able to use it.

Best file manager app. Until they released new version and stated the app we purchased is rendered useless.

Doesn't manage root properly. Root permissions are granted but it won't mount the root directory with write permissions.

Its terrible won't let me enter my data file

My most treasure app, allows me to drag and drop files between internal memory to SD card and reverse.

Does not have write access to my SD card. Useless.

I have been using this for years. Was really good but now can't access SD card and the unlocker no longer works with the latest Android update on my Huewei phone.

It's a perfect app that contains formats to open rar and zip and txt and a lots of things it's wounderful and very small

Just terrible! External SD card not recognized

Used to love this app but unable to access SD card on my new Galaxy S9.

Ftp crashes the app after 8.0 update.

Does not show my sd card although other file explorers are showing it.

Would be brilliant if there was syncing local folders with Google drive folders.

fails to open dropbox folder now

Problém s kopírovaním a vystrihovaním na microSD kartu

Can't read my sdcard marshmallow 6.0

Love that this app doesn't screw with file associations on my phone like other managers do.

Can't access the sd card on Android 8.

this file manager cant even access the sd card...

Cannot read misrosd on Oreo non root.

Can you support SMB.2?

I'm angered

Awesome file explorer. Super smooth user experience. Will recommend for sure

Does not work fully on Oero (android 8.0)

This is the best app as file manager ...I liked it very much ...

This is the best file manager I love it

This very fast

Nice application.,working properly. Thanks

Tried the rest, Solid's the best.

Muy bueno

The ui is just addictive.

thank you..💎💎💎💎💎

Fantastic app!



The best.



great interface

very nice

Best app





Download this app looking for a way to browse my network the way ES File Explorer used to. Solid Explorer CLASSIC does have a very limited network browser but lacks the simple functions to explore the C drive of a computer on the network. I wish I had known that Solid Explorer (not Classic) has no network capabilities at all before I paid for it. Fortunately I was more careful before giving them any more money for what sounds like the same program with an older skin but is in fact completely different.

Best app out there! Nothing else comes close for usability and features. Love the cloud to phone transfer capability , knocks spots off anything else I've tried :-)

@ Larry Kraus Larry, If you haven't already realized this; English is most likely not his first language, given his name, the fact that he gave specifics on how "not" to write to him about problems, and that he is, in fact, a developer of a great program, should point to the conclusion that he doesn't mean, " hey I developed this app, if you have a problem, deal with it."| Also he does care about this issue, about people having trouble using the unlocker. Just because he doesn't instantly respond with an answer, doesn't mean he doesn't care. He could have seen the problem people were having, and went straight to work on a solution, which he quickly found.| But if you still think he doesn't care about this app then go ahead and look for an alternative. Good luck finding one as good as this.

I am not able to transfer file from my phone storage to memory card or otg storage ,so what's the benifit of a file manager, will give 4 star if i can love file from 1 storage to another storage

this app sd card on xiaomi 4 prime not support.. pls fix

Купил ключ, теперь на новом телефоне реклама. За что я платил?

Transfer internal to external

Excellent file explorer!
