Pretty great

It's very fast and easy to use, but sometimes I get lost of where the app is. It would be nice if it always started at one location or have favorites. Each time I have to navigate to MY PC and then find the folder I need.

The Best File Manager

There have been many rumors going around that Microsoft will be making a modern file manager. This file manager is exactly what I envision would be the file manager in Windows 8.2 or Threshold. But two things that I would love to see implemented is: 1. Viewing files is out of the scope of this app, therefore have pictures, videos and documents open in their respective app. Take pictures for example. This app can view pictures but I would like to have pictures open in the modern app. 2. Don't have every folder that I browse to automatically be added to the favorites list. I'll edit the favorites list manually if I want to add/delete it. Thanks for making a great file manager.

Love file manager

Worked great for copying and moving files around with touch. I love the latest feature where you can browse through pictures.

So good but one major issue

I love this app. It almost makes me enjoy organizing my pictures. The multi rename function is great. The only problem I have run into is that on a surface the app won't load files in a single folder if it contains over a couple hundred files, it starts to load them and then just gives up. For photo management this is a real issue.

I am not a newbie to computers and I could not find my way through this application. I used the browse option and then it would not open any of the files in the folders I looked through. There is an option to choose a folder whereupon it appears in the bottom. At that point I have no idea what to do with it. Is there a help menu? I am guessing that all of the glowing reviews before this were made by friends of the developer.

Hands down the best file manager

Love the share feature and the details view.

The best file browser currently available

It's actually even a little nicer than the native Windows 8 file browser (which does exist, but can only be accessed through other apps, like Mail, Reader, etc.). It's crashed (blank blue screen, unresponsive) a few times when trying to open specific folders; I'm not sure if that is a random glitch, or if it just doesn't like certain file types. And it really needs sort options! Other than that, it's quite nice. I like the icon/tile view.

Well done and straightforward

BTW, for the people wondering why only your music/video/pictures libraries are available by default, that's actually required by the app sandboxing on Windows 8. Those libraries are the only places apps are allowed to get full access to "out of the box", any other folders can only be "given" to it by the user through the system file picker (which is what comes up when you "browse"). So it's not really something the author of this app could change.
