    I am looking for a file manager similar to windows explorer. I've read about EZ File Explorer and EZ File Explorer 1.5 cupcake. Do any of you know the difference and if they will work on the GN?

    Astro is my standby, es explorer is good too. If you want to transfer to your computer air DROID work very well.

    I agree with this, best one I found yet. Easy to use, allows you to favorite certain folders, and also allows integration with cloud storage.

    +1 I liked this much better than ES File Explorer. It's great if you're rooted too.

    I loved the old Astro. The newer version just seems to themed and "fancy" looking. Nonetheless, it's still my go to.
    Perhaps I'll give the others a look.

    EEk! To me that's just plain ugly. Does it have a classic theme? I just want to look at files and folders without all that background ugh!

    It also allows you to access PC's on your LAN over wifi.
    It has add-ons for task manager, bookmarks, backups, startup manager, etc.

    I don't think he's talking about app, he needs file manager for windows to browse system files in nexus..
    I'm looking for the same thing.

    es explorer can see files on computers that are in the same network, and has a built it zip tool. I haven't seen any thing as powerful as es explorer...just saying.

    I use Root Explorer. If you can pay for it, it is worth it. Most robust, straightforward, and simple file explorer I have used. Paid for it almost 2 years ago. Other file explorers have better graphics and maybe to some a nicer UI but simplicity is for me.
