Does the file system of your android device freak you out? Do the temporary and the permanent folders on your device seem too confusing to be handled? Then all you need to do is get yourself a file manger app. A file manager is an app that makes the Android file system simple and easily accessible for you. The most common operations performed on files or groups of files like create, open, edit, view, print, play, rename, move, copy, delete, search/find, and modify attributes, properties and permissions become tremendously easy with the use of such file managers. Some file managers even provide the interface to connect and share your files over the internet or the Bluetooth.
Pretty often new users of an Android device find it difficult to choose a suitable file manager for their device and tend to end up installing file managers with tangible interfaces and clumsy file views. Here is a list of the best file managers for your Android device:
1. Astro File Manager:
The Astro file manager is perhaps the best Android file manager that has been made till date. It makes the handling of files on your Android device extremely easy and comes with some pretty unique features as well. The file manager is capable of handling Zipped (.zip) and tarred (.Tar) compressed file formats. It can manage multiple files and directories and directories at once hence increasing the productivity of your device several folds. What’s even more interesting is that you can handle the files and directories that are being used by running applications using this file manager and hence need not kill the apps running in the background. Besides the file manager can help you attach files as attachments to be sent over the internet. One unique feature that Astro possess is its capability to back-up your apps on the SD card so to say that if you need to format your phone memory sometime your app data is going nowhere.
2. AndroZip File Manager:
The AndroZip file manager is another of the Android file managers available for download from the Android market. The AndroZip file browser provides the same features as the Astro file browser and at some places beats the Astro file manager in competition as well. The only problem that I saw when I used the App on my phone is its cut copy paste options. Most of the Android users need the cut copy paste options the mast for their file and in this file manager that functionality has been kept at a long tap menus distance away which can piss off some of the Android users who love to access their files in a ziffy. Even the interface the app provides is a little clumsy.
3. And Explorer:
The And Explorer is available for free download from the Android market is also one of the file explorers that are becoming increasing popular. The special features of the And Explorer are pretty cool and definitely need a mention- Lists files and folders sorted by name, size and date, Open file like HTML, MP3, Text, Video, Office on device, APK install support, Uncompressing support for ZIP, GZIP and TAR files, Regular and UTF-8 encoding support for ZIP, Multiple files and folders selection support. Now that is some feature support we are talking about and it will soon give the best in business a run for their money.
Amongst the other important File explorers for the Android device we have the Linda and the Discover file explorers topping the list. These are amongst the first File explorers that were developed for the Android device though not that feature rich they definitely offer some great features and an hardy and small application.
