Love it but add more features.

Really Love this app! I have couple of recommendations to make this already great app richer and finally replace it with windows default File Explorer: 1) Make tabs bold and make the current tab highlighted 2) Highlight the current file when previewing a file (e.g. PDF, Image) 3) Add more layout options for viewing files and folders (e.g. List, Icon, Tile, Detail, Content)

Very Sleek looking app. Lacks a few features

Just purchased the Modern file explore and love how easy it is to set up and customize the appearance. There are a couple of much needed features. Firstly, can’t seem to be able to open more than one window. This is sort of a deal breaker as I need to be able to copy files from one window to the other without browsing each time to the location. Secondly, It would be nice to be able to see the items in list mode instead of the large icon. Lastly, if there is no option to open more than one window, like window(s) explorer, pun intended, then a tab option or split pane would be nice. I see that you can put short cuts on the side and top which are handy but it’s still a lot of unnecessary mousing around. I beta test for sever high end professional audio companies and would love to help beta test anything you’re working on the above departments.

Good but needs improvements

It's so far the best file manager for the UWP platform, but it suffers from low performance issues. I'm also making an app that heavily uses the file system structure with recursive algorithms and doesn't suffer this kind of slow-downs when loading directory data. Other than that, and a bug where opening my D: drive lists all folders on the machine, it's a great app. Paid for it to support you and I will continue using it. I look forward to future updates :)

Good start

This is the closest thing to a real Win10 file manager. The others I've tried are terrible. But this could still use some work. Like a list view similar to a details view instead of tiles. Man I hate tiles. So good work and hopefully it will get better. If so, I might purchase it. Until then, I'll keep trying to make my own.

Missing many features!

Looks great, and is very fast. However: 1. Can't access network resources unless they are specifically mapped (can't add "Network" to the list 2. Must add all drives to access anything other than pictures, movies, cloud, by default. 3. No keyboard integration. if you want to walk the folder tree with a keyboard, you can't. 4. Can't launch files due to Windows permissions (this is the deal breaker) "Windows Store apps are not allowed to launch EXE files. The is a Microsoft restriction on all Windows Store apps". So then what is the point of this app anyway? Kudos to the developer for a great implementation of the current features set - but the app as a whole is not usable IMHO. 5. Can't change the view from icon/list/details etc.. Only icon view is available.

Buggy and slow

The behavior when clicking on a file to launch is very unpredictable. Sometimes it launches with one click, sometimes with two, sometimes no launch occurs regardless of the settings configured. Files get selected for every time you launch. Why? Should only select when clicking on corner checkbox. Selection is also unpredictable. The behavior changes on a whim. Accessing or launching files with UNC is slow. So slow that I thought nothing had occurred only to get a message 30 sec later that it could not open the PDF file. Why? Win file explorer opens it instantly with the associated application. Went back to the Win file explorer. Its a pain to use but at least its predictable.

Great UI, and quick, but needs a few improvemens

Love the look of the UI, and the app is responsive. However, it would be great if you could rename and reorder your favorites. Or if at least they were ordered alphabetically. Seems they are ordered in the order you added them. Also, for long running operations (like copying several files from a network drive), it blocks the app and there is no status or feedback on how long the operation is going to take. The Explorer8 has a great feature where it allows multiple operations at once and they don't block the UI. However, I would rather use this app as the UI for me is more pleasing and seems snappy.

Its okay

I tried using this to design a folder structure for work. Great ideas/interface, but not a finished product. I quickly encountered more quirks than I can tolerate

Guess I just don't like modern interface.

Completely lost when I first opened the app. Only music and videos shown by default. Need to add the c: drive? why? I like the detail view in win7 and earlier. Only options are tile or icon sorted left to right, impossible to find anything. May be the best explorer for win8 modern, I haven't found many options yet.

Awesomeness

This one of the best apps I have ever seen, very well made, makes it working with files and folders so easy, very polished, I would recommend to anyone.
