Welcome to 'Paul's Featured Apps', where I pick one of my favourite apps as featured app of the day! Today's app is...

ES File Explorer

What they say

Millions users

Free,Featured File manager & Appmanager & taskkiller which explores PHONE & PC

*thumbnails

What we say

ES File Explorer is one of the best file explorers BUT, it has one very special feature... it is the ONLY file explorer I have found that allows me to browse the various shares on my network on ANY device. Hugely useful in this regard and a generally accomplished file explorer - a must have!

Can you make it so it can analyse what is on the phone storage not just the SD Card?

Really like this but doesn't show USB devices?

sure it does, it just doesn't have a shortcut to them.
hit the memory card icon in the top-left to go to the root folder, then go to mnt>usb>system_usb (or docking_usb if you use a dock)
you can also bookmark it for easy access using the es bookmark manager.


Gazmondo: as in my advice to Singularitypoint, hit the memory card icon in the top-left to go to the root folder.

Hey does anyone know if I can access my shared folders with ES file manager via wifi? When I search in LAN I can only find the pc that is connected via cable to my router but It doesnt find the other pc that connects to the router via wifi. Any suggestions?
