windows garbage file explorer should be replace by this awesome .


23 June 2014

I had high expectations for this. I was curious what it might offer that the file explorer function in the OneDrive app didn't. Some of its reports looked really interesting. One of the first things I noticed, though, is it doesn't even show PDF files. (WTF?) It will show folders where I have PDFs, then will show no files present. Drop a small PDF on the desktop, go to Desktop folder, see all other files there and the PDF not shown. I'm an IT professional of long standing. I could probably figure this out if I dig long enough through the meandering, breezy, inefficient, time-consuming help site. But why should I have to? It's a file manager. Dig through the Help site for advanced features and great innovations, sure... but to actually have it show a PDF file existing? No, that's just silly. Or maybe I missed something? That begs there question.... why should there be anything to miss? Anyway... thank you for the trial period. Posting this review now and uninstalling.,

So far, this is the best most featured Modern UI file navigator/manager out there! Update to my review - I sent a couple of suggestions to the developer (I couldn't honestly think of more than a couple improvements), and literally within MINUTES got a REAL response! The purchase of this app will probably end up being one of the BEST Microsoft store purchases I ever made. I kid you not, and no, I have absolutely no relationship. This is just a great, well thought out app.

This APP is NO WHERE EVEN CLOSE to being Windows Explorer. To do that, the first thing would be to actually SHOW THE FILES IN THE FOLDERS!!! I feel absolutely so cheated by this developer/poser!

I love the app, but there are a few things missing. 1. Added "Open with" option so you can choose to open a file with something other than the default 2. More Multi-tasking support. You can have multiple windows open of different file explorers, however if you open up a file (like a picture, an audio file, or a video) it locks up those windows until you get out of the file you just opened. It would be nice if you could switch to another window without having to close a file. This would be most useful if you came across and opened up a music file that you felt like listening to the end but didn't want to stop what you were doing. Other than those two small things, it's a great working app, one of which I'm probably going to buy when my trial expires.

Loving the app so far, it is a very great modern UI file browser. Few suggestions I have is having a confirmation or going to files whenever you past within a folder? Also, an updated snap view for Windows 8.1. Otherwise, very awesome app, keep up the great work!
