Must have for windows 8!!!!

Seriously an amazing app for win 8!!!!! The file browsing experience in my win 8 tablet just got soo much better! I have one small suggestion, could you please add the option to disable the file explorer from switching the default yellow folder icons with icons of files inside the folder? it sometimes hogs the app when there are too many folders. Also, if you have the time, would it be possible to add the option of making the folder icons larger/smaller? Thank you so much for this app it is seriously the best app there is for win 8!

LOVE IT

I love this app. To get the best experience, you have to tag the folders you most use as "favorite". Then, every time you open the app, it goes right there where you want. After using a couple of others in the store, this one is way faster and takes full advantage of the metro experience. Highly recommended

Worst file explorer app

This app doesn't even open your documents and half of your folders. Avoid it!!! There are much better

Cannot show photo thumbnail!!

It cannot show my photo thumbnail nor playback the media contents (photo, video, music). Not as good as other file manager.

Limited

Nice, but limited. Doesn't connect with removable drive or Skydrive. Limited operations.

Virtually unusable

While it has a nice interface and looks like it has the potential to be a very good app, as it is it force closes way too often rendering it almost useless on the Surface RT. Hopefully the developer fixes it.

Great Interface, but crashes and has other issues

Well, I really like the Modern interface, and there is a lot to like about this program, but it has serious issues. About half the time when I open a pictures folder it crashes and exits the program. And it is not consistant on which folders cause a crash. Sometimes the same folder causes a crash and sometimes not. Very dissapointing. Also, it won't open some file extensions (e.g. "PRG"). These are extensions registered with Windows which open fine from the stock File Explorer. I get the message, "Error: Open, File Launch Failed." This program has promise, but it is not ready for use yet. Since there is no record of the dates of the updates in the changelog of this program, I don't know how often it is updated, so I am hesitant to continue using it. Also, there seems to be no way to contact the author for support or to report issues. I am running Win 8.1, 64bit, on a fairly new HP touchscreen laptop.

Great App!

Best metro file explorer, but if there is a way to access network shares I can't find it. Add better network support and it will be perfect.

Crashed everything!

The slick interface doesn't help much with the appeal of this app on the long run (short run too!) due to frequent crashes. Please fix this!

Good app

Nice app. Simple and easy to use. One improvement could be when a file is selected, like a video or picture, I would prefer to see it open in full screen and not see "My Explorer" still taking up part of the screen space. Continually having to swipe it out of the way is a nuisance.
