File managers are just as important on mobile phones as they are on computers. When it comes to smartphones the necessity increases due to the large number of files and applications that can be stored on these mobile phones. In this piece we’ll take a look at three of the best file managers that can be installed on Android phones so next time you’re looking for such an app, you’ll know what to look for.
First on the list is Astro file manager which like other file manager apps made for Android operating systems makes it easy to perform basic functions like copy, paste, move or even delete files without the need of the integrated file manager which at times can be difficult to use when a lot of operations need to be done. Among the benefits Astro includes are the ability to select more than one file at once and the ability to perform actions like compressing files into a ZIP archive. Also, the app comes with an internal task manager that will help you keep better track of the apps which are running. Astro will also give you information about your files, this way you’ll be able to get information like size and version of a certain file. The simple version is free but it contains some ads, while the Pro version is ad free but it will cost you a few bucks.
AndroZip, just like Astro, provides all the basic functions of an Android file manager. One of the main differences is that it will allow you to browse the content of the memory card and the content of the operating system. This can be helpful if you know exactly what you are doing, otherwise you could end up damaging your phone. Another difference from the previous file manager is the ability to compress files into a larger number of archive types, not just ZIP.
Last, but not least is ES File Explorer, another great contender that doesn’t lack any of the main functions a regular file manager has. Besides this, the file manager will allow you to add desktop shortcuts from within the application. Also, you can see the free space of your memory card, just like you would on a computer, and finally, you can use it to send files through Bluetooth or FTP, a feature unavailable with most file managers.
