I've noticed something: people who love Total Commander really love Total Commander. Like, they won't even consider another file manager most of the time. After seeing TC's extensive feature list, though, I can kind of see why -  this thing's chock-full of useful features. And with v2 - which was released as a beta in early September - it just got a lot more powerful.

Version 2 brings a slew of new stuff:

  • Drag&Drop files to other panel and to sub-folders
  • Built-in media player with equalizer, play queue, background playing, full screen video in landscape mode, stream from LAN and WebDAV plugins (they need to be updated too)
  • Improved stability of background operations
  • Select a range of files/folders with a long tap on an icon
  • Copy to external SD-Card on Android 3.0 or later even without root rights
  • Multi-Window support for Samsung Galaxy N7000, N7100 and N8000
  • Set permissions and owner/group for selected files
  • Custom scroll thumb also in the editor to scroll long files more quickly
  • Context menu now allows to add FLAC files to internal media player

    Why don't they use the new UI holo theme

      That's what I thought eversince I saw the app in the Play Store first!

    • digi_owl

      Or for that matter allow for bigger icons.

    • Davy Jones

      Those are old screens. It is very slightly more Holo than above. It's really the icons that need an update, the current ones look like they are from Windows 95.

      Truthfully I actually much prefer the UI to Solid Explorer's which is too bulky with oversized icons and ugly gradients everywhere. Total Commander might be less functional, but I find it easier to do simple tasks with.

    I used to be a Total Commander fan but lately I've been using Solid Explorer and I haven't looked back.

  • Patricia

    If you want a solid and beautiful file manager, please use Solid Commander.Total Commander is a an ugly crapware - sorry, TC, you've had your chance, but you seem not to learn ever...

      Solid Explorer*

      "Crapware". You can tell Patricia is a very well rounded person with an open and curious mind. What a beautiful personality.

      Your opinion is crap obviously. Several generations of geeks agreed this is the best file manager on PC and now is a hit on Android and someone calling himself Patricia cannot change that.

  • D4niel

    I really want a file manager to be just a file manager.

    • penisforyou

      Oi File Manager sir

  • Abhisshack D

    Solid Explorer beta 2 is way much better

  • Cheeseball

    Still using Total Commander due to the fact it handles Samba shares better and handles tar balls faster than Solid Explorer. The only problem is that it looks dated, but its still a nice classic look.

  • Raphaël Briand

    It still looks like arse.

    In this day and age there is absolutely no reason not to follow the android design guidelines. Pass

    Best file manager so far.
