Please note that this is an initial beta release of FX.  While we have tested this product extensively on a number of different devices, please do not use it for critical operations at this early stage of public testing.  Please ensure any files you manipulate with it are backed up.

We greatly appreciate bug reports, feature requests, suggestions, and questions.  Please report bugs to  A community forum is also available at

Epic 4G Touch My favorite file explorer is the one in Miui rom, but this one definitely puts up a fight. I love it, beautiful and user friendly

@Michael Please file a bug or e-mail Happy to help but need additional info. You're the first failure-to-launch report so far. If the app doesn't launch at all (i.e., doesn't launch-and-crash), it's generally not a problem with the app but with your phone/device. Generally speaking the first step for any Android app that behaves this way is to uninstall and then reinstall, and/or reboot the phone.

Will not launch

by Locus the 10/18/2011

absolutely brilliant used this app for less than 1 minute before it became my default file browser for non root stuff windows network support is easy to setup once setup it just works. interface is familiar to my desktops, (win and linux) so that helps

by David the 10/18/2011

Very nice Just missing root access, necessary in a file manager, nowadays.

Comprehensive & nice looking I didn't think this class of app could be improved much. I was wrong. Very nice pie chart displays. Useful network support.
