File Manager for Android

The mobile phones modern smartphones are real computers that you carry in the palm of your hand. They have complex operating systems, large amounts of memory and file systems compatible with the formats used on PCs for several years. Because there are directories and files on your mobile phone, it is important to have a file manager program to browse directories of internal memory or memory cards that these devices support.

File Manager for Android

A very complete and free file manager that I use on Android is File Expert. In addition to allowing browsing the directories of the cell phone it comes with several extra functions like access to shared files on the local network by Windows or Samba on Linux, it works as FTP client, SFTP, FTPS, WebDAV and Bluetooth OBEX.

In addition to serving as client software it can also be FTP and HTTP server and even access file servers in the cloud like Dropbox and Box.net.

If the device has NFC, it also allows the sharing of files through this technology. In a Wi-Fi network, it allows direct sharing of files with other devices that also run File Expert.

It also manages applications installed on Android, enabling quick uninstallation and backup of applications. Can compress and unzip ZIP. Can uncompress RAR and GZIP / TAR / TGZ / BZ files.

When the browse directory has images or videos, it creates thumbnails for the jpg, png and 3gp image formats. It has built-in text and image viewer, allows searching for files and also supports custom themes.

File Expert is free and has no ads. Practically perfect!

I’ve used several other file managers on Android, and I’ve never found one that is as complete, fast, light and efficient as File Expert . Install on your Android through the Android Market and no longer worry about manipulating files on your phone.
