File Manager is a professional, fast, and free file management tool for Android phones and tablets.

Tired of trying to figure out how to share files between your devices, Dropbox, Google Drive and even your FTP server? File Manager might be the app for you!

Put the power of professional file management right in your pocket! Rename, delete, or move files to and from your devices via Wi-Fi or data, and even stream to and from the cloud – all from the same app. One feature we really love is the fact that when you stream from the cloud you'll be able to do so without downloading and wasting space on your local device.

One potential downside of the app is the fact that it's ad supported; many users have reported that ads can be intrusive and clutter the workspace.

Ultimately File Manager is an easy way to manage, move and stream most files on your Android device.


  • Manage Many Kinds of Files Handles most files like pictures, video, documents, archives (even multi-part files!) and allows you to rename, delete, and move your files just like you do on your computer.
  • Supports Cloud and Wi-Fi File Transfer File Manager doesn’t just manage files on local storage, it has support for moving files wirelessly to other devices like your phone or tablet, to cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive and others.
  • Transfer Files and Stream without Downloading With File Manager you can move and stream files directly via SMB, FTP, and LAN directly to and from your devices.


  • Lots of Ads It’s ad supported to keep development going, but many users have complained about the slow-creep of excessive ads cluttering the interface.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
  • android.permission.ACCESS_SUPERUSER
  • android.permission.SYSTEM_OVERLAY_WINDOW
