A File Manager App is used to explore the contents of your internal, and external storage memory drives/cards in Google Android. It is similar to Windows Explorer which is used to browse, search for, and manage files in Windows. In Android, you need a File Manager App to install/sideload APK installer files for apps which you downloaded from third-party websites. File Managers are also handy for deleting folders, and files which you no longer need anymore. You also need a File Manager App to copy, and move files to different folders, and external microsd cards. You can also use a file manager to rename files and folders, and search for files and folders by name.
File Manager by Rhythm Software is one of my favorite File Management apps for Google Android because it is fast, simple to use, and stable. When I launch File Manager, it starts up in seconds, and managing files is very simple even on a touchscreen. It has a handy feature called storage analysis to see which files, folders, and apps are using up the most storage, so if I need to make room on Google Android, I know which apps, files, and folders to delete to free up free space to install other apps, and files on Android.
File Manager has List and grid view for file browsing, and built-in text editor, image gallery and swf player. There are also 3 sets of commercial icons for 80+ different file types, toolbar and menu items.
File Manager also supports multi-file selection to delete, copy, and cut/move multiple files and folders at once.
File Manager also supports Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, SkyDrive and SugarSync Cloud storage services, and Local Area Network share, FTP file sharing and WebDAV support with online media streaming. It also has compress and decompress support.
It also supports creating short cut icons to files and folder in the homescreen for easy access.
File Manager makes it easy for managing, searching, and sorting your files and folders on your Android phone or tablet without the need to plug it into your PC or laptop with a USB cable to use Windows Explorer which can be more time consuming because you need to turn on your PC, look for your USB cable, and turn on your mobile.
You can download File Manager from Google Play or from File Manager by Rhythm Software on Amazon App store for Android and Kindle Fire.
