About the new permission "SuperUser":
This permission is now requested to make Total Commander work better on rooted devices. It tells the SuperUser app that Total Commander suports root functions. It has no effect if your device is not rooted. Root functions allow Total Commander to write to system folders like /system or /data. You will be warned before anything is written if the partition is write protected.

    Been using the app for years and it's both (extremely) functional and easy to use whilst staying true to its desktop counterpart. Though to be fair I mostly use double commander on my PC, but they're basically equivalent in most regards. Top product with a great community. Your moblile and/or cross platform workflow will definitely improve by using this app; highly recommended for both novices and power users.

    This is a great app. I have been using it for aa while and find it to be one of the best file managers around. The 2 panels are a great help in doing many operations. The search is very verbose. There are great plugins to add. In short it had it all.

    The best file explorer overall, bar none. Drag n drop is awesome. I find myself using the built in music player a lot! The only thing I don't like is the limited support when, it comes to managing archives. For that one reason I still keep RAR on my phone. If the dev adds better support in that area I will uninstall RAR and forever use this one. I also think the built in text editor is very useful. I always download this on friends' phones when I need to help them because IT JUST WORKS!

    Minuses: - search is convoluted and very inefficiently designed in terms of actions needed to perform anything - lack of drag'n'drop functionality makes some basic tasks multiple times slower to perform than almost all other file managers out there Apart from that, it's a very good program. Free with no ads, stable, fast. It tries a bit too much to be a PC version for its own good, but it's still the best file manager out of about 10 other popular ones I've tried.

    It works good, but coult use some improvements. #1, the top under bar should not scroll when scrolling the list of files. Thay way you always have access to 'back/up' without having to scroll all the way to the top. #2, you need a better way to paste into an empty folder. Now you must do 3 dots, then create a folder, then long press on that and select paste (here) then delete the folder. #3, It would be nice to have easier access to copying multiple files without always going back and forth.

    And Total Commander said “Let There Be Light!” For me, working on any computer without an orthodox file manager is like trying to drive blindfolded in the dark so when I started using Androids I naturally chose Total Commander, having used it on MSDOS and then Windows machines since the early 90s. Thank you Christian Ghisler and everyone else who have helped make Total Commander the best and most capable orthodox file manager in the universe.

    This has been my go-to file management app for awhile now. I just add an shortcut to the downloads file within the app to my homescreen, which also helps on my devices that don't come with a native downloads app you can just add from the app drawer. I especially like that I can change the privacy/accessibility settings for each of my files right from the app. My only complaint is there isn't a way to 'share' a file so I can send/save them to Dropbox or Google Drive. Then it would be perfect. =)

    I'm very pleased with this app, as with PC version as well, which I recommend. I have one issue though, for quite some time. When I start from the app, to view on TV a video file, the subtitle is never recognised. If I start the video from native file viewer or a DLNA app, it works perfectly (Huawei P20 EML-L29/ Android 10)

    Every button I press has an error message "function not supported". Uninstalled.

    Excellent. Plain, simple, does just what one wants it to do: Find, delete, rename, move, copy files, and even move files between devices. As close to Linux file managers as I can find for Android. I have been using it for years. Works really well on tablets.
