FX File Explorer version 4.0 is now available with a new Material Design UI!

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.

FX has no ads.

The free main module of FX File Explorer (this product) includes all file management features for working with files on your phone/tablet.

The "FX Plus" add-on adds media management, network (FTP, SFTP, SMB, WebDAV) and cloud capabilities (Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, Box, SugarSync). The "Plus" add-on is a paid app (with a 7-day free trial).

The free "FX Root" add-on is for developers and knowledgeable enthusiasts who need to make changes as the root user.

* Pinch-to-zoom in any "Explorer" window, zoom-in to see additional information about items
* Intuitive swipe-to-select gesture for managing multiple items (Slide finger horizontally across items to select/deselect them; see YouTube Videos, web site documentation, or in-app help for more information)
