    Highly improved new version with iTunes-like music-player functionality

    • full support for the android music-library: edit playlists with drag-and-drop, sort songs by name/album/artist/year, browse albums in "Cover Flow"
    • integration of music library and file system: drag songs from folder to library-playlist, open songs from library in file system...
    • options to select what details to show: icons, extensions, size, permissions, time modified (also as "ago")
    • improved drag-and-drop
    • many fixes and improvements

    - fling-scroll inside zoomed image and to next image
    ... all completely smooth, even on slow devices

    The Android Soul said that we're the best file manager for Android platform.. Here are the reviews:

    File Expert is really an awesome android app with boot loads of features, maybe capable enough to replace anything from 3 to 5 apps you use currently, and guess what, still adding features you hadn

    Root Explorer isn't on the list - that's my favorite.

    Why? It isn't the same as Root Explorer. It's obvious from the responses here Root Explorer is the most popular, but it isn't in the poll ??

    SpeedSoft makes Root Explorer.

    But yeah, Root Explorer is absolutely essential for anyone who's rooted. Typically one of the very first apps I download on any new flash.

    Ah, I see - but really, use the name people are going to recognize. Root Explorer should be the name, not SpeedSoft Whatever the heck is up there! :eek:

    Can you please edit your poll and fix the name of Root Explorer? No one knows it under the name SpeedSoft.

    I use Bluetooth File Transfer, as it has a built in file manager which does everything I need to be able to do.

    Androzip does not display the file names if my language font is set when I view zip file contents. (only in view zip file. file browsing shows the font as it should).
    Does anyone know workaround?
