ES File Explorer

Cover art

 What it does: ES File Explorer is a file manager.

Offenses

  • Intrusive Ads

If you asked any android buff 5 years ago what file explorer they’d recommend they would tell you to download ES File Explorer in a heartbeat, unfortunately the devs have since pumped the app full of bloatware and it asks you to download shady apps a few of which have questionable content. ES also started displaying ads on the locks creen without user consent.

Alternatives: MiXplorer, Solid Explorer, FX File Explorer

  1. I use the ad-free pro version which appears to be ok. I have astro too but ES is easier to use. I hate ad supported apps and try to avoid them or upgrade to ad-free as quickly as possible.
