    There are a great many file managers available for android, and new ones appear frequently. For instance, a real innovative one (with drag-and-drop, continuous zoom in all view, advanced multi-touch support and much more unique features) is ScaliCommander

    If you have tried some file managers, which do you like most and why?

    OI File Manager, far better than Astro, in my opinion, it just seems so much faster then any other file manager...and its free, without any ads.
    Peace.

    I'm partial to Linda.

    I've tried out a few but can't really remember what in particular bugged me about the others. I guess I just found Linda to be the most intuitive to use, with the cleanest and most pleasing UI.

    What about Astro in particular does everyone love so much?

    "Speed Software Explorer" should count for it

    iTunes-like audio playback for folders and playlists, seek without screech, full featured music player in the next version very soon now!

    already usable as folder-based music player (also the free trial version!), edit playlists with drag-and-drop, multi-select while playing

    support for headset controls (double-click for next song, long-click for previous one), background playback with status bar notification, pause at incoming calls and headset unplug

    see the website for instructions!

    Can ScaliCommander search a folder full of Word Documents for key terms?

    currently only file and folder names are searched, but I will soon make the contents of some document-types like Word Documents (and also metadata of media files) searchable, too. You can count on it.

    You just convinced me to try out your app.

    EDIT - just noticed it's pay only. What about a free/ad-supported version? Also, does this file manager have root access like Root Explorer?

    There's a trial version, see the website, at the bottom

    no root access yet (though you can browse "normal" files on the internal storage)

    How soon do you think?

    I've found a workaround program and am considering paying for the full version... However, that other program forces me to save my files as PDFs and load them onto an internet server. So, not ideal.

    If you can find a way to easily search any folder of Word Documents for the contents therein, you'd make a paying customer out of me.
