Best app in the store. Outstanding support.

it s one of the best file explorer so far that I have been using

This app is the best file explorer available period. Beautiful layout and works perfect, downside being Mr. Tallet is hampered by Microsoft limitations and so can't put in disk cleanup, defragmentation and various other tools that no apps are permitted. It's a shame as it's better than the file explorer Microsoft provides and just as reliable if not more.

This app is a solid performer. I would like to see hidden files and folders, current storage space for all devices and jumplists on the taskbar icon in a future update. The app is beautiful and easy to use. How about a modern Control Panel?

I'd buy it, but the search function disappears in portrait mode...

Good application

I love this app. I use it quite often on my Surface Pro 2. It's very full featured and easy to use. However, one thing I use it for somewhat often seems to be a big buggy. It's just a cosmetic bug but it's disruptive. If I share something to this app via the share charm (usually screenshots), the list of folders to save to is white text on a white background. It's not unless I open the app first that the background isn't white and I can read the options. It's a long-standing bug that hasn't yet been fixed. I hope it does. Other than that, it's a very useful app.

Love the look of the UI, and the app is responsive. However, it would be great if you could rename and reorder your favorites. Or if at least they were ordered alphabetically. Seems they are ordered in the order you added them. Also, for long running operations (like copying several files from a network drive), it blocks the app and there is no status or feedback on how long the operation is going to take. The Explorer8 has a great feature where it allows multiple operations at once and they don't block the UI. However, I would rather use this app as the UI for me is more pleasing and seems snappy.

I tried using this to design a folder structure for work. Great ideas/interface, but not a finished product. I quickly encountered more quirks than I can tolerate
