    Has everything I need in a file explorer and nothing I don't need. It's great. Best one I tried over the years and very much appreciate the understated looks and lack of ads. Would prefer proper error message if samba share couldn't be reached (server offline) and when samba share info entered doesn't make sense to the app. If I can't use backslashes, or manually prepend my server name with smb:// or prepend my user name with the domain name like I can on Windows, then tell me! Currently it will then end up showing you what looks like an empty folder eventually, which is a bit confusing. Some other app made sense of what I entered despite all that. Very minor quibbles and now that I know, it all works reliably, though. Full Review

    Love it so far! Absolute best alternative to annoying ES Explorer, which got bought, hijacked, bloated, made obnoxious & ruined in the last couple of years. Thank you, Speed Software! This seems simple, thorough in features, intelligent, technical not silly/irrelevant, rich yet ideally minimal. Does everything I need, and I've encountered no problems whatever so far. I had all but given up finding a good file manager. Even has dark view (without making me jump through any hoops!) Also love the legacy list style option! Very happy, relieved & grateful. Will buy pro soon if there is one, to support dev. Full Review

    Explorer does a hundred things and it does them all very well. The only thing missing is a concession to users with visual issues. Could you add some size and contrast values to personalizing settings? p.s LOVE the "send" function. Its brilliant. Full Review
