Top 5 file managers for Android

You have frequently browsed through the file system of your Android device to manage or locate some files. At the end you’ve come to the verdict that the native file explorer is lacking in its capabilities and in most cases you will not find the File Manager though like on my HTC One mini.

Happily, if you ever look into Google Play Store, you’d find plenty of file manager apps designed to make the finding, editing, syncing, and managing easier on you Android Device. Finally, to save your time and hassle, I’ve tested personally following file managers for Android.

Note: They are ordered on which I liked the most.

1. X-Plore

Download

X-Plore has taken a unique split-screen approach to file management, giving you two interfaces to swipe between. You wonder to see that its dual explorer setup make it quite easy to switch between copy/paste files and directories.

Tired of limited storage?

Google Drive is a handy Cloud Storage and Synchronization service which is linked with all of your Google’s online services including Gmail, Android, the Chrome and Google’s online applications like Google Docs but is now also called Google Drive. Amazingly the most common form is a file synchronization tool, it has many added extras which are perfect for helping you work in the Cloud.

Google’s free offering is the best pricing option available with the most generous of its rivals. You can get 15 GB for totally free just by having a Google account. Though paid storage options are incredibly cheap, 100 GB of storage will cost you $2 a month, which is a surely small price, even the most impressive part is that for $10 per month you can get 1 TB of storage, may be more than that your physical hard drive space. The limit of a single file size you can upload is 1 TB.

The one annoying part is that it’s shared between your Gmail and Google+ social networking accounts as well, although only large photos uploaded to Google+ will count towards your limits. YouTube, Google’s video sharing service doesn’t count towards this total.

Digital voice assistant: Siri, Google Now or Cortana?

Love it or hate it, voice-activated digital assistants have become quite popular on smartphones now. They allow us to control various things on our phones without the use of hands, offer a speedy alternative to ask questions and they feel like the future. As smartwatches like Pebble, Galaxy Gear or G Watch and other wearables like Google Glass take off, which lack the big touch screens we find on our phones, voice controls are going to get even more important.

However, Microsoft had offered basic voice commands in the old Windows Phone since, but now they appeared in bandwagon of rivalries with the name of Cortana (an intelligent assistant) that offers basic commands just like Siri but also draws on your calendar, contacts, location and browsing history to offer personalized experience just like its big rival Google Now. Lets take a deeper look to measure all three.

It offers advanced features. Layers, item selection and other complex operations are easy to use in large part because they’ve been reworked for touchscreen interfaces. However, Photoshop Express does not give all features as Adobe Photoshop. But it is surprisingly the best photo editing tool and its clean interface is fun to play with.
