Pros & Cons:

It's professional looking and well thought-out. The navigation is easy to follow and it can happily manage your data files.
Would be nice if there was a Help somewhere rather than having to go the developer's site.

Our Review:

File Manager (File transfer) is a very visually fresh way of managing your data on your Android device. When you first open it, it displays all the menu icons in a friendly fashion that doesn't scream "basic" but rather in a well thought out and dare I say it, professional way. The navigation vaguely reminds me of customised CRM view I once used. It defaults its Home Directory to your external memory card but this can be changed through the settings and you can also change the theme to Light or Dark but who cares? It's more about what it can and can't do.

The software, like a lot of the others described here, can do a wealth of file manipulation, searches, sorting, creation of folders etc. The settings are clear and easy to navigate though the front-end may take you a while to get used to if you're not a regular Android app user. Apart from the local file management, you can also scan your network and manage files that way too. I haven't tried that but if you do, let me know if it works well or not.

There is a very nice tool in this app called Storage Analysis, which I really like. It shows, at the top of the screen, your device and any external storage, total amount of memory and available memory. Underneath it lists all your folders, their size, and the percentage of storage it uses. Not really useful I suppose if memory size doesn't interest you, but useful if you are careful about how big an app really is when it creates its installation folders. (I promise you I'm not an anorak!)

Again I will mention the Help or in this case, the lack of. If there is a Help option somewhere in the app, I can't find it. Also, I am running this on my my tablet and overall, it works really well both physically and visually. I'm not overly sure how it will visually work on an Android phone unless the screen is a pretty decent size.
