An easy way to manage your Android device


ES File Explorer is a great tool for managing files and programs. It comes with many additional features, such as a tool for killing running applications, direct cloud drive storage (via Dropbox, Google Drive, or Skydrive), and an FTP client to use on your mobile device and your PC.

The app allows any Android user to manage all of their resources easily, access anything on their mobile device, and then share it if they so want to. Uploading photos, watching movies, and managing your 3G connection are now even easier.


When working with your files, you will have the classic options you are accustomed to on desktop computers, such as copy, paste, cut, create, delete, and rename. But, you can also send files to anybody via email.

You can also decompress ZIP or RAR files, access the contents of documents in many different file types, and even access the content on your computer via a WiFi network.

ES File Explorer is a very useful tool for those more advanced Android users, as it will place tons of possibilities at your fingertips.
