The geek in me likes the idea of dual-pane file managers to perform heavy duty file management functions where files in a folder from one side of the pane can easily moved or copied to another folder location in the second pane.
The only Android version of a dual pane file manager, that I am aware of, is called X-plore.
The dual-pane interface is very nice, but do you know what really sold me on X-plore?
It is X-plore’s ability to access all of the cloud file storage services that I currently have accounts with. I do not know of any other Android file manager that is setup to give access to the number of cloud based file storage services, as X-plore does. X-plore gives you the ability to connect to Google Drive™, Dropbox, Box.net, Mega.co.nz ***, OneDrive, Webdav, Yandex.disk, MediaFire, SugarSync, Dump Truck, and Copy.com. This option alone in X-plore saves you from downloading and installing the apps for each of those services (thus saving you space on your smartphone and tablet).
I could go on and on about X-plore and the features built-in that you normally don’t see; however, due to the number of features (and their uniqueness), I have listed them below to let you make your own decision.
