- Why do you think it’s important to have a File Manager on your phone? (Or why not?)
I have found scenarios where I cannot accomplish a task with the existing system and therefore need to use a file manager. For example:
a download needs to be relocated so the correct app can see it. Currently downloading a pdf is a good example of this. The document viewer doesn't open it if I chose that as the action for the download. Instead I must save to Downloads and later move to Documents.
sometimes I discover there is a problem with space and need to quickly delete some music.
When samba was working, I used it to access documents on the home share. It worked very nicely.
Which are the most important features for you?
Bookmarks for fast navigation
Swipe up from bottom for quick access to other volumes
Which are the common tasks you try to accomplish?
Fix file locations so the correct app can see them (usually move from Downloads to ./Videos or ./Music, for example.
Delete when space is tight.
Access samba shares to use media that wouldn't fit on the device (I have a large collection on the home server, I can copy a little at a time and delete later).
How the current version of File Manager fails to meet your expectations?
It's actually very good. I have no complaints, other than Samba no longer works.
