FX File Explorer is a file manager with optional media, networking, cloud, and root capabilities. FX is designed to let you quickly and easily manage all content on your phone or tablet.
But just how good is it?
Well, let’s start by saying NO Ads which is a good start, stable and fast. Which you expect from most file managers worth their salt.
The icon and detail list views in file explorer windows give you the following; Cut/Copy/Paste/Delete using clipboard, Storage space usage analyzer (tap View->Details within any file explorer window), In-app documentation (tap Tools->Help within any window).

Yes it is a good file manager. Cloud storage management is excellent. Hands down the best on my Xoom tablet. I love the gui the interface and design. I have said before that Solid Explorer Beta 2 is my personal favourite but, now I’m not so sure.
