It's a good time for fans of powerful file browsers. Just a few days after Root Explorer got a substantial update, popular alternative Solid Explorer is getting the same treatment. The changelog for 1.4.5 includes a laundry list of new features and tweaked settings, all of which combine to make Solid Explorer an increasingly powerful option. The app is offered in a 14-day free trial, with an unlock application costing $1.99.
Despite its slightly controversial conversion from being a free beta app to paid in the final version, Solid Explorer continues to be one of the most powerful, versatile, and best-supported apps on Android – especially in the file manager category. The app recently received an update that makes it even more powerful, specifically in the area of cloud storage: the app now has SugarSync support, as well as improved libraries for Box and SkyDrive.
We all knew this day was coming, and now it's here: Solid Explorer has graduated from beta. As one normally expects, the final version of the application brings several new features to the table:
-Out of Beta, yay!
-Support for Samsung's Multi Window
-Support for subtitles with streaming videos
-Ability to set ringtones
-Busybox included in the app
-Fixed issues with refreshing the gallery
-Optimized package size
-Minor bug fixes and stability improvements
It also brings something else that was quite unexpected: a price tag.
