X-plore allows you to see inside of your Android device. And also outside.

This is a dual-pane explorer, there are two folders shown at same time, and common operation such as copying files are done from one pane to another.
And X-plore shows folder hierarchy in a tree view for clear orientation and fast switching to other location.

You may explore internals of the device, and if you're power user and have your device rooted, you can make changes to system data - backup files, remove unwanted applications, etc.

If you're standard user, you may choose to hide internal memory from view and be sure not to mess with system.
You can comfortably see contents of mass memories on your device, or possibly attached USB memory stick.

Simple app manager allows to see, run, copy, share, uninstall and further explore installed applications.

WiFi file sharing
Access files on your Android device from other Android devices over WiFi.

Access from a PC web browser
Manage files on your Android device from your PC.

Access to FTP and FTPS (secure FTP) servers is supported.
Multiple servers may be configured.

X-plore can display shared folders on other computers in LAN.

X-plore can access various web storage "Cloud" servers, and access their files.
You need to have account in supported web service, then you can access your files stored online through X-plore.

Supported is also SSH File Transfer (SFTP) and Terminal shell emulator.

X-plore contains music player that can play music tracks from any available location.

With Vault function, you can encrypt sensitive files, even by your fingerprint.

Main operations are related to managing files and folders - viewing, copying, moving, deleting, compressing to Zip, extracting, renaming, sharing, and more.

SQLite database viewer
X-plore can show SQLite database files (those with .db extension) as expandable list of tables, each table containing list of rows and columns with database entries.

Main interaction is done by touch screen, clicking on folders or files to open files, or long-click to open context menu which contains options which can be done on particular clicked item, or multiple selected items.
Multi-selection allows to do operation on more files at once.

Opening file may mean to use one of built-in viewer for most popular file types: images, audio, video and text.
Or you may configure X-plore to use system application for opening files, in which case system-predefined application that can open particular file is launched.

Archives (currently supported are Zip, Rar and 7zip) are displayed as other folders.

App ChangeLog

  • - Fixed Bookmarks button (now it's standard function assignable to button bar or key)
  • - Fixed few crashes

Reviews From google play store

Developer doesn't respond to my questions. Help function doesn't work. Randomly pops up that 3 Beers required for this function. Happened with two different functions. Would be nice to know what other functions are going to require a payment. Why not just have a single cost to unlock all features without playing the hidden "beer game", & pay through Google Play not Paypal! Some reviews say after paying, asking for beers didn't go away. All in all, I'm not impressed with the app & developer.

UPDATE: Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the work you have put into this app. I keep coming back to it when others fail. PLEASE keep supporting Amazon Cloud. ORIGINAL: Initially I liked the features and ease of use and decided to buy the developer "1 Beer." But then I used the cloud features and LOVED what this app can do: so I bought him another "2 Beers!" OUTSTANDING app.

I have tried many file explorers but this is the one I have stuck with. Full of features and easy to use. Very easy to copy and move files and folders. Interface very different from other explorer apps - I really like it. Excellent response from developer.

I've been using xplore since Symbian. But the Wi-Fi file sharing is really buggy. Most of the time, it cannot find the other devices.there should be an option to add devices using ip:port instead of searching

This app has been very helpful for getting everything back up and going againit has been a blessing to use this app thank you so much for allowing me to try a free how did grateful to pay for it on the 1st of the month

I thought it was gonna be a good app until I used the music player feature it wants 3 beer donations when I try to change the song more than 3 times. And 3 beer donations = $3.80 yet its described as a free app.

It's the only good file explorer! but they added the number of files to the folder itself, I don't like this, I think it should at least be optional.

The app is very handy when on an Android TV. However, some of the features require a 'donation.' In order to access the file sharing feature, the donation is $3.90. The problem is despite following all the suggestions {uninstalling, re-installing, restarting device} and emailing support, the file sharing is still 'crippled' and requests for a donation continue. I've never had an experience where immediate payment via Google Play didn't result in immediate access to the full features of an application. I would hesitate for anyone to go any further with this app via a donation until the developers address this issue in a satisfactory way.

Brilliantly build application. Excellent screen design clearly shows the flow. File copying is realy fast. App seems solid in performance.. Hats off to the developer.

Excellent app, especially for moving data on local network like him wifi. Extends your phone functionality and makes working with your phone more like with a computer.

This application is excellent. I have tried a bunch of other file explorer type applications for Android and they were all terrible in one way or another. This app isn't something I need every day but when I need it I do need it. Maybe I set my camera on rapid shoot accidentally and have a hundred files to get rid of. Or I need to transfer a file to Dropbox. Or I need to move a ringtone to the ringtone folder. Maybe I need its picture viewer to find a pic I took. It does all of this and more.

I've been using X-plore for years now and I am very much satisfied with the experience. It is very convenient and so easy to use.

That's what I was Looking for LAN Management +FTP + Bulk Rename Utlity in one place. Thanks team for creating such an innovative GUI App!

This is a good app, but I am having troubles setting the default action for files. When I tap a video file it gives me a list of available apps, but when I tap an audio file it just opens the first available app even if an app like VLC or Google Music is there. How can I set so that no matter what file I tap and what apps are installed it will always, ALWAYS show me options? Clearing Defaults does not help.

I used to really love this app to access files on my Amazon Cloud and GDrive. But just now I've tried using it to organize some files on my PC via LAN connection. Whenever I drag some folders to another folder on the target PC, X-plorer transfers them but freezes afterwards. I pretty much have to restart it. Please fix this issue if you can.

Amazing. Appreciate your hard work. Request to the creator to make it more depth & strong. Thanks a lot.

For sure the dopest file explorer thats full featured, and most importantly, is the only disk map app. Even without disk map this app has everything, the in app purchase isnt an issue and only adds a few conveniences cause this aop is fully functional without lame ass ads. Even the mechanism to open folders is awesome. It has an App drawer so u can pack up APKs. Text editor, vid, music, pic viewers, color scheme, you name it. THE BEST, trust! especially for ROOT users.

Good everywhere...but the only problem I have with this is...that its has number sorting problem..eg. if I have 15 files in a folder and they are named 1 to 15 then when sorting by name...its shows 1 then 11 then 12 and so on till 15 and then 2, 3, 4 and so on... So, please solve this...otherwise its a very good file manager... 👍👍👍

This is without doubt, the worst app I have tried to use on Android. If I view an image, there is no way to get out of it! i.e. no "back" button or anything. I have to shut down my phone and reboot it to get out of the app. And yes I tried all kinds of taps, long taps, swipes etc. nothing would bring up anything to go back to the app. You are just stuck viewing the image. I stand by this review. After the reply from the developer, I tried again to use it. I read the help file. All I want to do is to be able to move files. I finally got the WiFi function to work so I could use it from my pc browser, but as so as I tried to access a folder it asks for money.

Really powerful dual-page file manager. Similar to Total Commander, but more intuitive. No ads. The developer is responsive. Question: how to use Disk map? I only see 1 rectangle labeled as "Root 0B, Free 5%, 1.4GB/23GB". I'm using a non-rooted Google Pixel with Android Q.

Good. Easy to connect to other devices on local network

Ever used dual-panes in portrait view? Messy. X-plore solved it. Ads? None. Author just asks donations instead, even that, is optional. Configurable tools? Yes. There's dark mode. Thumbnails. Selection icon is large you can't miss your selections. The best dual-pane explorer. Period.

Does everything that I need or would exspect to use and then some. Took a little while to figure out just how to do so but is overall an exceptional app.

Simply superb app. Easily manageable powerful file manager.

I have tried to use WiFi sharing but the App demanded to donate 3 beers for this service. I've paid around $4. Then I've tried it again. For my surprise it demanded for 3 beers again. I don't want to support alcohol misuse. It is very unpopular ... The function WiFi sharing works extremely bad. Can't copy subfolders and some files (f.ex. pdf). I would like to get my money back and quit the app

Very efficient and clever file manager. Does what I need it to do and more besides. Dropbox/Drive functionality keeps everything in one app. Makes my device life much easier. Complexities are kept to a minimum. Advanced functions are there if device is rooted. Worthy of donation.

A dual pane file manager is a must for me! This app is awesome! It also does not alter file attributes if you copy files to another folder or SD card! And you can work faster because of its dual pane system!

Really great for exploring local and cloud storage. Thanks guys!!

Amazing! Moving tons of pictures to different folders on a network drive is almost impossible in any other app. This app makes it so easy. Thank you!

I use solely this along side of ES file manager, 1 does what the other cannot ...just perfectly 👌

I have been using this app since symbian days. Recently used this app to back and restore my device data between my phone and computer over wifi. It was such a hassle-free experience.

Author is quick to respond to problems. This is good app to use. Once I got to use to it. Since it operates differently to other explorer apps.

I'm a heavy user of phones since Nokia was leading the show 15 years ago and ever since I've been a loyal user for X-plore File Manager. I have tried many file manager apps but never got satisfied the way I am with this incredible app. I wanna thank you guys for this amazing and super useful app. Thank you and I hope to see more apps from and wish you all the success.

Thank you, this app is great. Would be nice if you could drag and drop the menus in the configure buttons setting. Would also like to see improvement on the overall UI.

A logical user interface. I hope the developer continues to make more apps of this quality.

Amazing file explorer! The UI is intuitive and makes it very easy to use.

Only thing i really see missing is trash and vault for the sdcard.. matter of fact trash on SD doesn't go to internal storage... a nice addition would be multiple compression routines as it handles alot of decompression routines

Decent, but not good enough. Taping on "Show details" for a file barely shows you any details about a file. For example: Show details does not show you what resolution a video file is or what audio bitrate a video file is.

Great interface. My main reason for using this app is to visually browse my terabyte server through FTP.

It is the best file manger but add when copying the same named files automatically rename

Developers, can we get a batch renamer with more features? One that adds enumeration and also adds custom batch renaming? Please, you're our only hope for a good batch renamer. Great job by the way.

Good but not perfect. I would like a windows UI instead of tree directory. Also tried to buy some beers but got error "Fail to get items to purchase, code=5"

Nice, I like it. But an horizontally interface, on bottom width of buttons it is much more preferable. If can you do it gladly I give a 5 stars and a "beer".

Been using this file manager for a few years and as default. 1 question, how to add a cloud storage that is not on the list of clouds in the app?

Best file explorer I have use since nokia symbian times, I love that mau mau game as well ;). This app is very efficient, it does the work so well and has so many features. Thank you so much for the app

Interface is tedious but it works for my purposes.

Has become too cumbersome to try to do the simplest of tasks and now full of very very distracting ads. Time to find a replacement.

Best app for file transfer and management. You can transfer over WiFi which means no cables.

To me this is the best File Manager I ever used. I always installed this App in all my devices. Very practical and easy to use. Thanks Developer.

I can't say anything more then what is described in the full details from the Dev themselves. Awesome app!!

Using it since the symbian s60v3 days. Feature rich and really like the built-in video player which handles subtitles.

Very useful., especially the LAN feature. Thank you.

24-8-19 After last update I cant access shared folders in pc via wifi. Please fix it. 07-09-19 It looks like you fixed it . Thx.

One of bests since Symbian. I think its under appreciated considering the variaty of it features and how well all of them work.

This app is so configurable access all media from Dropbox to USB files ads free and free what more could you ask for?

Only one among the several I tried, that let you share files through bluetooth that other "file manager" app won't let you

The app is trash. It constantly crashes, takes forever to transfer files and never even finds my external hard-drive! Absolutely useless app. Uninstalling.

My favorite file manager app but now I can not access sd card files, it does not show sd card and phone memory as before

Great App! It helps me to do lots of things only in single app. Thanks for this App

Changed from 5 stars to 3 stars because I just found out that the viewing quality of long screenshots is significantly degraded compared to other photo viewing apps

The best file manager for me. Includes ssh access which I use daily to my lab.

Pretty good file manager. Is there a way to ad file shortcuts to home screen? If so, definite 5 stars.

Getting old feeling of using Xplore that was used to be felt on symbian platform. It's still simply best.

I was using this app for a very long time. But recently i can't use it anymore, it ask for root only. Very sad

This is a great file explorer ! For once a explore that allows the use of physical keys . Highly recommend and perfct for a blackberry phone

Dialog box asking if I want to grant XPlore permission to access USB when plugging in USB OTG but when I select to grant permission, it unmounts the drive. Selecting cancel does the opposite i.e. grants access to the drive

I love this app cuz it gives me to be able to get into my hard drive as well as my Nvidia Shield internal drive

It just works, with plenty of features if you need them.

Can't access anymore the root folder despite SuperSu being installed. Seems like an update broke the app.

I wish this developer / company should long live, cause I know thier apps From Nokia Symbian OS days and they are master piece apps in those days. I really liked them a lot. Donated my contribution. 🙏

Something is not right on USB OTG, can't read the card. It keep accessing the usb but nothing show up.

Satisfying work...i m using this app last 3yrs no complent and no issue of any interuption👍👍👍

LOVE It is easiest File management system that I have try...

Very best file manager for Android. Not suitable for Apple. Dumb Apple.

Does not organize files in a comprehensive way to find anything.

Great, except that the text editor sometimes shows a blank file, especially when switching back to this app, or just turning the screen back on. This makes you think that all your data in the file is lost. If you save it as so, it will erase your data in that file. You have to back out of the file & re-open it to see your data again & save it. However, any unsaved changes since you last saw your data will be lost. 😫

Loving its layout and scan feature for finding device on wireless lan

Gets a job done but the UI is a little cluttered.

They promptly fixed the APK installation issue in Android 10. Thanks developers!

The best file manager I've ever seen, on any platform, on any operating system! Thank you for creating this wonderful app, I use it all the time. 3 beers for you!

This apps is amazing. But it needs de grid view option.

Very handy File System Explorer App with tons of convenient features!

please add Hindi language Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi Hindi plus fix bug in android TV when ask stroage permission for SD card

Everything is built around navigation! Love it!

Doesn't show System Apps on 'App Manager' menu..Interface is good and lightweight app..

Nevergot 2 use app, hack disabled & removed it from phone. This is " Y " I Will never put any financial information on this phone or on a PC !!! NONE !!

I use this app since 2010 (symbian OS on n73).. very very very handy and nice .. thank you developers

Great file manager. You just have to familiarize the interface

Files put in vault completely disappeared after re opening the app. Thanks

On screen Fingerprint scanner not work on Samsung A50.... Face unlock dont available Must used password for security

Nice, but it locked up once and I had to reboot my device to open the app again. I haven't been able to get it to repeat. Unable to backup multiple files to Google storage at the same time. A little confusing at first, but after learning all the features, it's fun to use. Very handy for backing up media files to your SD card. Batch rename is great for media files. Lots of cool features. Thank you developers. Backing up multiple files to Google drive is working. I am changing my review to 5 stars.

Best file manager I've ever used. Been using it for a year or so and have no complaints. I like being able to see the folder tree, being able to have two halves with different folders or drives in each and a lot of other features. Once you get the hang of it, everything is easier, but especially moving or copying files between folders. Works best on a tablet but it's fine on a phone too.

An awesome and powerful file manager that is able to perform just everything you need, especially for me connecting via FTP and SSH to my server. This app would totally be worth 5 stars if there wouldn't be problems from time to time that the SSH connection interrupts ("input stream closed"). If that occurs, it occurs quite frequently... And another small thing: I would like to use the pack zip feature also on local storage, so far it is just able to do this on remote servers. Thx for this App

Works perfectly again after a few issues. Hurrah!

Ok for mobile, but not for android tv. I bought Sony Bravia Android Tv and i had a hope that everything gonna work like on mobile. It's not. I have limited functionality what's annoying . Im trying copy file from PC (by DLNA) to pendrive connected to tv (where xplore is instaled ) and I can't, becouse x-plore have no permission to modify content. I can watch movies etc. but thats it. If I long press some file or folder then window with options gonna pop up , but I can't choice any of them.

** Have some problem on SMB v1 file transferring on updated version. ** Back to old version, which is 4.15.00, if i want to transfer the file to external hard drive, it is very stable at a specific speed. However, the stability of file transferring in this updated version seems a problem. Sometimes it pops out a window reading something like " SMB time out ", and the speed is way lower than the old version. Hope developers could fix this problem.

Doesn't show Dual app's folder. Append something regarding this. (New version mobiles now have "Dual app" capability)

great app..just trying to find value of a beer and how to donate.

Awesome... Wish it could access all files without rooting device...

Most easier app .I used this since 2010. Iloved it
