Each of the apps may be downloaded and used right away, and each have their own qualities that make them stand out from the others on the market.

 1 – ES File Explorer

2 – File expert with clouds

They market it as a tool for managing files on your phone, tablet, your PC and your cloud server, so it is mildly impressive just for that. The interface is pretty intuitive though it deserves a gentle criticism for being uninspired. It helps you find and target files quickly and helps transfer files to other devices using the Internet or Bluetooth.

It has a nice indexing feature which you can use to find your files again later. The app is fast and this is helped by the indexing system it uses. They say they did it because people have massive cloud services with hundreds of thousands of files and their app is suitable for them.

There are lots of settings to play with such as your language, date, Bluetooth, file managers, etc. There is a home screen widget you can set so you can see some stats on your home page, and there are plugins to allow you to view different files within the app itself such as letting you see HTML files or image files. It is currently a very highly rated app both on the net and on Google Play.

5 – Root Explorer

Root Explorer - android apps

This is a very popular file management app, though if your phone has to be rooted first is not very clear (it seems that way). The point of the app is to allow you to manage files on a slightly more fundamental level to the point of being able to do things that the normally functioning Android operating system would not allow you to do. Once you get the app going you will find it has a lot of functions that are listed using symbols to help you pick the one you want.
