ES File Explorer is one of most widely used app in the Android Ecosystem due to numerous reasons:
- it is free
- it can used on the one of the oldest verisons of android like Froyo
- Small is Size(5 mb approx)
Unlike other developers, ES APP Group is quiet active in updating the on regular intervals which is also one of the reason for the user to incline over this app. The app has been downloaded 300 million times and is still increasing, it’s certainly a popular choice. ES File Explorer is a fully-featured file manager that gives you control over your locally stored media, documents and more, also anything on your SD card or cloud storage provider of choice.The app also offers some extra features like an app manager, plus cache cleaner and task manager.
All the basic operations like cut, copy, paste, rename, delete are available. You can select multiple files at once to perform these actions, which help us to move a bunch of data from one place to another. The app is also the capable to compress and decompress ZIP files and unpack RAR files. You can also view video and music files. Customizing icon size and sorting order is also available.
Adding cloud accounts is as easy as logging into them. There is also support for Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SugarSync and more and once you’ve set up your cloud storgae accounts, you can view, edit, and move files in the exact same ways as your local files. This makes it really easy to move large amounts of data from your device to the cloud, all from your phone or tablet. ES File Explorer also functions as an FTP and WebDAV client meaning you can manage files on FTP, FTPS, SFTP, and WebDAV servers just like you manage files locally. Check out our tutorial on FTP
The app also allows us to customize the look and feel of the app, but we feel it is not up to the mark when compared to other third party developers. As there are so many features and technical functions, we feel that it might be confusing for some users to understand for the first time, but later it is quiet user- friendly.
