Unfortunately let me down Great UI, but until it is fixed I rate 2 stars, errors on folder create/delete and errors on copy and pasting to an external SD card. I have another file mgr that can do it just fine on KitKat. So please fix and will rate 5 stars.

Sean Duckworth

Simple.and easy to use I love this file manager..I really am amazed at how easily I can get things done I normally would just put off due to being to time consuming or complacated. .I really like this app.and I first found it while on the infamous custom rom on my note 4 tmobile that I know about it.i will install on every rom I go threw.keep up the great work! !

Kevin Furjan

Crashing when adding a folder I mean, it is basic operation. It must work.

Chema Martin

Beautiful and stable Still lacking features when compared with the big names in the file manager business in android, but very promising, and it's hard to find a better looking alternative.

Uttam Kumar

Name Change... Bro the app ui is awesome but it's request that please change its display name from Amaze to File Manager Amaze... Coz I think I will help people to find in their app drawer. Only amaze is irritating

Guillermo Gonzalez

The best of the best. Period. The best I have used from all the top rated and recommended file managers and this one is superior in presentation and average in flexibility. If there is something missing g it is the unzipping feature but I have a personal favorite for that so there is no problem. 5 STARS.

Salvatore Mannina

Still the best material designed file manager I've tested but I don't like the fact that delete is now buried within a menu rather than at the top of the screen when files are selected.

Kat Yu

Paste is not working on SD, view compressed files Firstly, in the SD card copying a file doesn't work and when I cut a file it gets deleted instead. Secondly, sometimes I just want to see what's inside a compressed file, not extract it, the view files option is not working, please fix

Abhi Yadav

Use Google play store icon Amaze got much better icon inside play store. Use this one to display on mobile instead the round green one which is displayed on mobile.

Logan Seitz

Amazing file manager with root explorer. Finally get to have 2 apps in 1 that I like

Saunak Chowdhury

Love it but.... Please add a filter option...otherwise its great file manager...simple an cool...

Peyman Nazerian

The most considerate devs I've ever contacted on playstore Thanx again for being so considerate, Lord Shiva bless you brothers, Jai . .

Ajit Ray

All in one blast..... App is very nice.....but also add Apk Manager above App manager .......and ..extracting to desired location.

Eli Bendinsky.

Nice ui, no complaints Material design has made this app look very pretty, and the file management system is perfectly fine.

Qumruddin Siddiqui

Excellent This app is all you need. No problems so far. The one thing I disliked was the logo but the new logo resolves everything.

Abey Austin

This app juse "Amaze" me! The best File manager app with lots of customizations ?

Dela Anthonio

Beautiful and Functional I like this fill manager but I'm not a fan of the new launcher icon.

Jubal Saji

Best file explorer... Awesome work, loving the material UI... Only thing is the way it handles the USB otg ... The bookmark doesn't open up the USB drive... Other than that it's the best... Keep up the good work..

Jim Doe

Excellent No ridiculous permissions, no extras, no mining. Excellent! Please keep updating the app and upgrade the uninstaller and root functions. Still there are some issues when handling, creating, deleting folders and files.At least on Lollipop.Keep up the good work! Thank you so much, dev!

Benjamin Campbell

The Material Design is better than expected Despite being worried that the design may skimp on power features, I'm really impressed by Amaze. It's fully featured, but it's still beautiful.

Mike Strollo

Great start! I'd really like to see a move file option. Thanks for replying, but cut and paste is not the same as move.

prabhakar thota

Plz change the file name !! Everything thing is good .. !! Except file name plz change the name Amaze to File manager ... It's irritating !! Actually I have to give 5 star because of name nly I given two star .. !!

Hardik Trivedi

Good But no material animation when click on plus(+) button.

Sasha Stan

Why is the Google play store icon different then actual app icon? It's a minor thing but mismatching icons are kinda irritating. Besides that the app is very solid and customizable.

Ayberk Koc

:( Tried moving my media files from internal storage to sd card. All gone .. Thx alot.

Amit Date

Great but.. This is a great lollipop file manager.... But it doesn't have otg support.. Pls add this feature.

Julian Thomas

Possibly the best looking of the material design file managers There are only 3 or 4 file managers right now that follow Material Design, but I think this is one of the best as it has a few more settings than the others.

Lord_Zane 55

Cloud? I really love amaze. However I cannot give it 5 stars since I cannot add a cloud service to it. Add cloud support and I'll give 5 stars. Keep up the good work :)

Muhamad Rozaide

Working great after an update My problem fixed! Work like charm. Thanks

Tony Stark

Scroll bar Go back to skinny scroll bar, new ones distracting and janky. (I realize this was googles doing but implement the old one if possible)

Abhishek Vikramjeet Gaba

Needs some changes Some bugs need to fix

Tony F

Great app but Icon doesnt match one in app description

John Ng

Perfect: Change the name to A File Manager. What else to say? It does what its supposed to, is modular, and doesn't have ads. Looks pretty too...

Christina Perez

Fantastic File Manager! Superb UI and material design with themes, Root exploration and most definitely easy to use and ad free.

Arslan Memon

Good but how to disable the swipe to go to root explorer?

Lucas Chen Alba

Yes Finally a smooth and simple file browser, ty very much!!! But I would like a "select all" funcionality

Pritam Ghosh

Perfect Replacement For ES File Manager One of the best apps after the update

Amit Kesarkar

Great app Greatest file explorer and small in size works great on my s6 edge missing features like cloud integration root and an inbuit text editor luving it pls include the above features in next update then 5 stars

Suraj Jain

OTG no supported This app doesn't support OTG, please fix it and make it compatible for OTG.

ebinu abdul

Crash while share files Crash while sharing files from android folder inside internal SD

Artem Tim

Please Make animations faster like in gdrive or gmail. Update element ui is pixelized, fix please

Евгений Белоусов

Very good. I like this file manager.

Дмитрий Похиль

Good job Very nice have a desire to: increase the size of icons. Too small for alignment with other application icons.

prasath manimuthu

Excellent app with neat interface.... Please try changing the below. 1. Unable to share the folder. 2. Please make cut copy paste simple.

Tim. De9

Favorite file manager for lollipop A beautiful modern feel and a solid foundation with plenty of customization and features. Yep this file manager is my favorite and I have tried just about all of them.. I appreciate your hard work to make such a great app

Todd Simon

Excellent The BEST file manager I've used for Android. Simple, works well, and runs light on system resources. Better than FX, ES, and all the others out there. I love how they follow the most up-to-date design guidelines. Highly recommend.

Andreas Fritsch

Usually Excellent But lost ALL original file dates when moving photos from internal storage to SD card. Why don't file dates get carried over?

Ian Townsend

Works well and has by for the best looking interface of them all.

Eva Alvarez

Very Promising This is definitely one of my favorite file managers. I think it would be perfect if there were a share/cloud option and for it to be compatible with DiskUsage but aside from that, it's a beautiful app!

Carl Schatz

Great! Works well, looks good, and it's FREE. Author should be's certainly worth paying for it (a nominal amount)

Steve Brown

Very nice!! OPEN SOURCE!! Nicely surprised @ this file browser! Active application running @37.5mb, not bad. Very, very clean UI. Folder creation works. **dev. Please add networked access to PC. **dev. Please add option to allow changing the directory location for main menu items (DCIM, download, movies, music, videos and pictures).OPEN SOURCE app!!****No access to /data or others, even with root access and a app restart.

Aneesh Arora

Great material design look Very clean and neat material design look. Able to read sdcard and no ads. Perfect!

Rajat Verma

Much room for additions The Design and interface feels exceedingly fluid but the app lacks many features. Consider adding features like System Analyser, gesture navigaton, tagging, favourites, FTP manager, trash, swipe for options etc.

Carl Andres

Always forgets user defined settings android 4. It slowly becomes annoying.

Pan Wanqing

Oh so they finally added in the apk manager, great! The new UI is off though. E.g. the FAB has shadow that looks like 8dp depth, but the action bar has not, while the FAB casts no shadow on action bar. I mean, what logic is this? I'm irked by all those contradictions in logic.

BAYU Laksana

Bug found. When i open Settings > Color , the title bar doesn't exist. And suggestion, add features 'quick apply' for color.

martin cooper

Coooooool One of the best n awesome app in my life....

Paul Johnston

Nice work Another great open source app! And the only one I've found that opens tar.gz archives:)

Jack-Rich JP Salillas

Why the frequent updates? Don't you have a test device there before deploying an update???

Rendy Darmawan

Add feature SMB No feature for access SMB/LAN

Qumruddin Siddiqui

Good work, but long way to go Right now, the fab lacks animation, storage write is available on lollipop only, the collapsible app bar needs a revamp and much more. I know the devs are going to add a lot more with time. But for now, l will hope that time comes soon.

Kapil Agarwal

Never ceases to amaze me Just when I think that it can't get any better, it brings along an update which improves the experience.

Rob F

Can't unrar big files, force closes every time and I had to download a different app to actually extract my files. Red looks pink, may be fine for you but it isn't for me. I'm going to continue using cm file manager. I'd rather not have to download another app to perform a task this app claims to do.

Franken Stein

Please make swipe dual tab look like root browser

Jim Doe

We will see.. - 1 star because you started asking for Identity permissions.

Aditya Narayan

UI Improvements How about adding options to add new files and folders within the floating + icon. The popup doesnt adhere to the material design philosophy. 5 stars to the app when this is implemented.

Isaiah Loubeau

amazing app does everything I need it to and more. thanks Devs

Brian Ferguson

Best out there. A solid app with constant updates and getting better every time.

Abdullah Namlah

Crashes After the new update it keeps crashing whenever I delete any file and change the color of the layout. Please fix it

Rudra Banerjee

Why a file manager needs access to identity? Great look, but seems fishy

Lord_Zane 55

Hard to use I hate the new tablet multipane as I have a small tablet. Can you make it an option? I also cannot figure out how to add bookmarks. Also could you add Dropbox support? Used to love this app EDIT: the ui is fixed!

Debanka Chanda

Great file manager I am too much invested in ES File explorer, so can't really change that.. But hey, you guys have made a beautiful and functional file manager!

Harpratap Singh layal

Buggy Multi pane is fixed. Now it force closes when you delete something

Frank K Mardian

Best one This is the best file manager I have used. A must on any nexus device which is missing a native file manager.

Henrike Sprengel

Cloud Service Integration Design and functions are great. I am just missing a link to cloud storages like Dropbox or Google Drive, with which I could upload entire folders. It would also be great to have a search function in the app manager.

Marco Scannadinari

Nice design however... For some reason its asking for root access when creating an empty file on my internal storage, yet when I deny it, it creates the file just the same?? Creating another file (`touch a.txt` in terminal emu) works fine with no root.

Laziz Rashidov

Looks like a good... I used to es file manager, but now it has a lot of adds and non usable features. Your file manager looks like to solid file explorer but has lack of features. By the way, one of the best free open source file manager.

Matthew Patrick

Fix please. So on other file manager if i open very large like conf file ex:apns config on /system/etc . then it not LAGS. Im using exynos note 3 btw. And in yours and some other it lags so much. Cant even scroll to bottom. Maybe allocate more ram? Or use all threads available? And remember hardware rendering :) great job btw. Best file manager

Thomas Milne

Really nice looking but crappy If this had browsing for network shares it would be better. File copying fails a lot for no reason, just stops and no notification. Can't see file details like size or anything. Useless. Uninstalled.

Shivam Baluni

Thanks !!:-) 100%free without ads Best file explorer with the best features. :-) .but sometimes it gers laggy ! Keep it up indians.

Bill Feinberg

Best File Manager Hands-Down I've tried most, and thus is the best File Manager that I have ever found. Straightforward, easy, and simple to use. It even gives you thumbnails of images and programs.

Stevenson Yu

Simple and Clean, but... I'm looking for alternatives to ES File Explorer, and this is one of the leading contenders due to its clean interface. Unfortunately I haven't made the switch yet because Amaze doesn't seem to support USB OTG yet.

Jerry Suppan

I very much like the clean, intuitive, simple navigation of this file manager. I one issue I have and that is I am trying to figure out how to give write access to the external 128GB MicroSD card. When I try to copy/paste, or cut/paste objects from one location to the other I am being told I need to choose the root folder of the resource (external MicroSD card) and give it write permissions. But, no where is it clear as to how to do this. At least it is not obvious how to do so. One feature I would like to see is, the ability to copy/cut/paste files from my home network's computer, NAS, etc., over WiFi to my Android device as well. Other then that, wonderful and simple file manager. A big thank you.

justin palmieri

Good replacement for ugly stock file manager I replaced the my files stock file manager with your app works the same but just looks better. Nice

jsn btc

Beautiful UI, Throughput Speeds Need Improvement I have been a loyal ES File Manager fan for a long time. After getting spam notifications from it, I had to unfortunately ditch it. I've tried Amaze before, but went back to ES. No more. Going to be using Amaze for a few months and really evaluate it well. However, I have to say I love the UI. I love the ease of use. Great work devs! I have seen benchmarks that put it quite a few steps below ES as far as read/write speeds. Hopefully this can be improved as more people move away from ES.

Manil Chowdhury

Good: Simple, quick and open source. Problem: I set a folder as Home so it's the first thing I see when opening the app. The Home keeps getting reset back to root. I'm only using that because there's no option to have a shortcut widget for that folder on the phone Home Screen.

Giannis Maragoudakis

Beautiful Very nice design. Great functionality and Open Source! The only thing missing is FTP and SFTP support.

Michael Rivera

I want red primary and secondary the other orangish color is ugly and take off that refresh to view folders with a quick change like an added or removed file from another app Plz give us a red primary and secondary color

Mert Dirik

Simple, beautiful and supports SMB shares! I was looking for a file manager I can use to access to SMB shares. All other alternatives are either bloated with useless features like application managers, file cleaners or download monitors, or they don't have streaming from smb shares. Amaze is just what I want and nothing more. Bonus points for open source. Wonderful!

Rajish Vijayan

Best file manager I found so far Simple to use, not cluttered with unnecessary features. Does what it is supposed to do. Clean with an attractive UI and customization options.

Jesus Torres

Having problems! EDIT: Any way around having to disable root to view the sdcard?

Amir Siahy

Great job It's gonna be awesome if you add dual tab exploring feature like explore file manager also i had a problem with Search function when im trying to finde for e.x *.pdf the app doesn't find any match but when I'm search for pdf, it does.

Stefano Giaimo

Good alternate explorer now that ES has gone bloatware. Fast, easy, material design. Has an option for root access but still won't show me the contents of /data/data on AOSP 6.0.1. More tabs would be nice, cloud service support would be welcomed too. Gotta drop some stars because of the root access issues. Edit: My bad, I'm using systemless SuperSU. Probably why not all root features are functional. +1 star.

Ross Byrne

Could be the one... Now that ES file explorer has decided to be full of bloatware and useless crap, I am looking for a solid alternative. Amaze already has the SMB support I am after, add on SFTP and Dropbox support and this will be perfect.

Nicholas Ng

Can't attach files through this app. Tried attaching a zip to my email but always gets "can't attach empty file" error even though the zip is not empty. I can attach the zip just fine through the system file explorer. Please look into this.

Salem Zurqi

Soiled and Dependable Used to use ES File, but your app is awesome, easy to use and do it's job perfectly. Keep up the good work, also for backup an apk it would be nice to backup only the apk not the file structure.

Sourav Bagchi

Add cloud storage option I like this file manager over ES file explorer. Best file manager ever. But need some features like- cloud storage, encryption etc

David B.

Getting there A good file explorer. Especially if you want open source, but a lack of network drive access makes me take a star off.

CJ Chico

Better than es Now that es has gotten a little bloated and slow IMO, this app is great. Whether doing a simple file transfer, or browsing through your documents, this app is a must have.

Bruno Augusto

Awesome... ... elegant and efficient, but there are two things I would like to see: A simple dashboard as home screen (which, IMHO, makes more sense for the Home icon) and the ability to remove, or at least redirect, default links of predefined bookmarks (images, videos...) in sidebar

Spencer Mathews

Clean interface and functional. It would be nice if the APK backup function could rename files with their version number like ES File Explorer did.

Yuda Pratama

Need builtin images viewer Believe me, if amaze have this feature it will become the best file manager.

fist strike

Awesome! I have a suggestion, please when i select multiple folders, give an option to see the properties or total space used

Ayush Banka

Good looking file explorer that still needs a little work. Evertime I delete a file from while browsing the apks, the app crashes. Plz look into this.


Happy user Simple to use n navigate around .most importantly.... Less invasive permissions....Keep up t good work dev..

Isahaq Ibrahim

Best... Other than stock cm12 I need this for when I use custom roms that give me ES file manager. Utter garbage compared to this masterpiece

Parag Kokate

Loved it Ek number aahe asplet 8airbone isse chalta hay without file download thanks amaze team

Aditya Mokkarala

Powerful and customizable, yet simple and elegant This is one of the best file managers. Complete with material design, it's got everything a file manager should have without extra bloat and redundant functionality. My only complaint? The text editor needs a search function. A more "material-y" icon would be nice too.


Where's the cut function? The interface is nice, but there are many missing functions that I think are essential to a file manager such as cut and compress.

Jonathan Szeto

Good, but... I would like more sort customization. I like that the main directory can be sorted by name with folders on top, but for let's say Downloads, I want it to be sorted by last modified (desc) with no preference on files or folders first.

Andreas Fritsch

Usually Excellent But lost ALL original file dates when moving photos from internal storage to SD card. Why don't file dates get carried over?

Lord Hex

Amazing file manager Have been trying so many file managers and since finding Amaze I've been recommending it to evryone. Features are nice to have but I feel that being streamlined for me is key.

Alexander Popovych

Best file manager ever. Built-in manager in sony sucks, but when I fpond this one, I was amazed :)

Chris Kellahan

Found this app after ES File Explorer became rubbish. I'm liking this so far, back to doing the stuff I want, and nothing more, in a tidy interface. No ads, no prompting me to install other apps or rate it.

Tjoe Pipis

Pls add music player & image viewer Like ES explorer, and Amaze would be complete but without any bloatware

Raja Patel

Great FileManager Awesome... Have been using this from a long time now and it's simple & good looking . Recommended many of my friends and they are also very happy with this

Mohammad Dhorat

Does what it needs to I came here because es file explorer now has more bloatware than software. Please keep your software simple. A file explorer should just be a file explorer. Thanks. Great job on this.

Šabonas Povilas

Was good… Then i upgraded to 6.0.1 its started to crash in lots of ways… before that it was best file manager…

Casey Leach

The best file manager I've ever used! I used to hate material design, I had no clue what it actually was... Then I got this app, it's beautiful! The only thing that it's missing is support for popular cloud storage. If you added Dropbox support, I would, I dont even know! I would pay you? Its amazing!

Arav Khanna

Just amazing But... Could you please show the total size of folders (like in solid explorer)? You could add an option for it in the settings

Ajay Godbole

the best I prefer a simple clean file manager which completes day to day file management tasks. I have tried 3-4 file managers. I must say amaze is the best . One request please keep it simple forever else it will become Es file manager

James Harvey

Great Having been put off ES Explorer due to the bloatware and annoying UI, I'm really happy I found Amaze. Great UX so far, very intuitive, and the Material design cues are most welcome. Limited number of permissions too. Very impressed thus far.

Doncho Mazhlekov

Free and not bloated Excellent app! Used to use ES but the free version became so bloated, I got tired of it. This has all the basics, it's free, no adds or useless stuff. Perfect for my needs! Great job, keep up the good work!

Laziz Rashidov

Looks like a good... Please make an update of thumbnail icon for pictures, when I switched to the grid view it looks like not material but kind of old style.

S Murali Mohan

Clean without Confusion Amazing and user friendly. A separate email sent to you. Adding increase / decrease of font size to Text Editor will be useful. I use Htc desire600, dual sim, v4.1.2, Sense 5.0

Mark Deacon

Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900F MM 6.0.1 - why can't I open the /extsdcard anymore on my phone? I'm confused ? - are these bugs?

Kyosan Shoujo

Hide file option has a bug There seems to be a problem with hide files options. Files that are unhidden later won't get unhidden from the gallery and music apps it seems

Carl Andres

Root explorer is ridiculous Yes it does copy files but will return 0 bytes. Bs

Cody J

only had it for a few minutes so far, but so far I love it! simple to use and quick to learn and setup how you want it, even has a dark theme and custom colour settings! Instantly decided to make this my main file explorer especially since EZ File Explorer is trying so hard to burn its self to the ground. Only thing I can think of that is missing is the ability to add bookmarks to folders on the android home screen/descktop. I have a couple folders I access regularly that are buried in the android/data folders.

Lauri Hyytiäinen

SMB Connection failure Otherwise this seems like a nice and working app but the smb connection is a joke. Everytime I try to login Amaze for some reason deletes the first letter from my username. Other features may work but I couldn't be bothered to try them since I need a functioning smb connection. The FTP connect does work fine though, probably due to there not being a username or password.

Eric Snell

Last version unusable. Could not start because of trying to cast an Integer to String or vice versa during startup. Had to delete app data and lost lot of bookmarks. Then, attempting to search and multiple problems. Click search area to update text and it disappears. Hit back button and app crashes with NPE in some fixSlashes method. Have to uninstall and switch to another, more stable, browser. Too bad, I used this app for a long time but I need something stable.

Sudhir Khanger

Featrues killed the simplicity of Amaze It was my favorite file manager because of its simplicity. Now its only purpose is to cram features. I am not a root user. Let me hide/remove APK, APK Manager, and FTP server. Pull down in main screen shows the appbar where as it refreshes in folders. That's so confusing.

Fab Mini

That's not a good update A rollback would be best option. Folder size and content not shown anymore. And that's just one issue.. Update: uninstalled. Move files also not working. This is app simply doesn't work. It doesn't do what a file manager does. So what's the point. Uninstalled.

Hanrui Zhang

Deleted and Re-installed, Fixed Now Thank you for replying, dev! I cleared data but it didn't work, so I just uninstalled and reinstalled Amaze. Works like the first day I installed it again. Thanks for your work.

Alekos Orendain

Clean and simple It's great if you want a no frills file Explorer. Only draw back is it seems to have no built in media player, which I often use to customize notification tones.

Chris Sterling

The Mark Of Good Code Very impressive for an open source app. Might not meet all your needs but it is very clean and customisable not mention ad free. Thank you devs. Keep hacking strong.

Mark Deacon

Important options have been removed! 1. The move option has disappeared, can no longer move folders around. 2. When using the cut and paste option instead. It keeps showing as unsuccessful? 3. Shows my sdcard again which is good! 4. Actually going to uninstall this until fixed.

Matt Cloutier

Functions Broken The "move"option has been completely removed with only the choice to "cut", but even when copying and pasting folders in my storage, it crashes and only copies half or less the files. Please fix.

Gokul Vsd

Open source and I love it But there are a few bugs, mainly: Sometimes when you go back to the previous directory or you close the app and open it, it changes back to list view from gird view, and the files I've hidden reappear. Also, RAR files take too long to extract.


Crashes if you have back navigation enabled in settings and leave the app. Also, the navigation bar is colored by default but the toggle in settings is off at first launch.

Yağız Şimşek

Thanks for making it worse I live this app because it is easy to use and simple. When I open a file it crashes. It's very annoying. You have to fix it

David Hanney

Haphazard and Crashy Very much Not the ES Explorer replacement I was looking for. Strange UI where you must scroll to the top of a listing to find the action buttons. Samba looses your directory position so you must renavigate. Lots of forced closes. Right now it has a notify that it is permanently stuck at about 25% copying a file. Selecting that notify takes me to a blank white screen. Swiping Amaze away in the task manager does not remove the notify. Feels like an uphill struggle to do anything. Shame. Uninstalling.

Tobi Fink

Samba streaming not working anymore I chose Amaze as a replacement for ES File Explorer. I used to stream from my samba share to vlc. This doesn't seem to be possible anymore. I would appreciate some feedback on this problem. Maybe I can help to elaborate. Apart from that it's a great app.

EsQueue SeaQuake

SMB connection failure This feature is broken. It doesn't connect with the correct info even though other es file explorer worked with the exact same settings. It also seems to erase the first letter on the username everyone it try to log on.

Ali Qureshi

What Happened? I really loved Amaze but the recent update broke a lot of key functions. For example moving or even copying files results in errors now.

Will Robinson

Was perfect but recently 'compress' is causing Amaze to crash (Select files, select 'compress', blank 'zip' created, "Amaze has stopped working..." // Also fails to copy files to SD rendering its name a bit of a misnomer.

Christian Velasquez

write permission bug keeps nagging and suggesting to enable write permissions for my micro sd card in android 6.0.1 on my lg g pad x 8.0.. stock lg file manager deletes files just fine without write permission nagging

Andrew Cruickshank

Sorry The web reviews give this too much credit. Its missing features that should be staple. And it crashes often.

Glen Seeds

No SMB support This is supposed to be there. The change log gives no clue as to how it disappeared. Since that's the only reason I wanted it, I uninstalled it immediately.

Guy Montpellier

Constantly getting... "Unsuccessful operations" when trying to copy files from internal to SD card. Was a successful uninstall though.

Ashay Kapadiya

Forced Stop on deleting files. Its gets lagged everytime i open it.and it gets unable to also mix up the folders display.and also on deleting images it forced stops.pls bring new update and fix

Evgeny Markov

Screen flickering and crashes Nice file manager, but i see screen flickering when i press "+" floating button and then press "back" button. If i press "+" and then "x" animation goes smoothly. Also app crashes when i try to zip something.

Supper Happy I'm using a nexus 7 tablet and this app works great! I can access the files I need on an external flash drive with ease and without constant irritating pop-ups slowing this old device down.

Alberto Ramos

it is pretty, free and light. It's crashing whenever I minimize the app or change to another app like when trying to play audios

Makesh Vineeth

Please provide us the option to make the top bar always visible . I sometimes find difficult to navigate when top bar is hidden. Also app force stops while creating a new folder.

Shivam Gupta

Need this 1)Besides copy and delete, add 'cut' button too. 2) Add a Recycle Bin so that deleted files can be retrieved. This app is light and bloatware free and I loved this.

Alan Ho

Crashed Latest version of the app forced closed when I tried to delete a file. Otherwise, a good light-weight file explorer.

Igor B

Cannot open video files over network Good app! But cannot open video files over SMB connection. The playback stops after a moment. Otherwise great app!

Somesh Thakur

Superb! Material UI and user friendly. A bug which I faced was, On selecting Sort apps by ascending order it does nothing.

Glen Shrubsall

Needs work. Performs OK, just keeps telling me has stopped whenever I try to open something and samba shares continually need to be refreshed.

Sriram Vemuri

Please provide an option to disable pull to refresh The file manager that convinced me in both UI/UX. But please do provide an option to disable pull to refresh, Everytime I pull down intending to reach top of the list fast it refreshes. And also an option to reduce the action bar width.

The go to File Manager I generally don't rate an app with four stars, but this one is simple, intuitive, beautiful, customizable, free and most importantly ad free.

Kinjal Goyal

Vry bad version. Hate it badly Whenever I used to open amaze application a pop up window used to open, saying unfortunately not responding. I am unable to retrieve my data. Fix it ASAP


Not working App crashes any time I try to copy/paste or delete a file

Denny Mancilla

Just amazing... So easy to use; simple, no-nonsense interface without any ads... I could even use it with root access in my Tab S when no other file explorer (even ES File Explorer Pro) could...

Mochammad Aditya Dwi Amanda

Crashh on jellibean/lolipop Crash when copy cut paste file etc and smb transfer start service crash too :( . Please fix it

Akshay K H

Neat, zip not working After dumping ES explorer i was searching for a simple file explorer and finally i found this really appreciate the work by devs for this app.

Arik Topaz

Where did Samba support go?? I used to be able to access my network shares through amaze, now I don't see any such option or setting anywhere, did you guys remove it for some reason?

Vladimir Rujević

Amazing file manager Really well made and functional, good and simple design, just right amount of features. Root explorer is working fine and has helped me debloat my phone. App manager is having some minor problems, it only updates application status after reboot. Otherwise no problems, I would give you 10/5 stars if I could... I'm using f-droid version, installed it over Google play only to leave this review.

Topher Lee

Amaze is amazing. (Too cheesy?) I'm a big fan of anything open source. I love the "Material" UI and the ability to change the theme colors. I'd like to incorporate this app into my own ROMs. Thank you for making it open source and not including ads. You're awesome. EDIT: Any chance we'll get to see tabs, samba and ftp client support? The only reasons I still have ES installed...

4 sars because of annoying error Everytime I press the home button or whenever it has to open like a picture in another app it gives me an "Unfortunately Amaze has stopped" error. Phone: Galaxy J1. Please fix this. This app is sooo amazing! I don't want to give up on it because of this.

David Bridges

useless app obfuscates standard folders. cannot return to search results. only finds sd card. overwrites standard file browser without permission. test example: install then try and set ringtones from phones set of ringtones. how this gets more than 1 star by anyone is a mystery.


Nice replacement for ES Nice replacement for bloated ES file explorer. Not so many options (eg no option to choose location for app backup). Nice that it supports app backup, but when testing this the backupped .apk's could not be installed! (Parse error)

Madangopal Menon

Crash issue Just installed and tried. IT CRASHES everytime I try to rename a file. OS is jellybean on MT6589 chip, so I guess it should work fine. So uninstalling as of now.

Nienfa Shung

Better than rest but bugged. Minor bug, causes duplication of items in the gallery and apks, but deleting one causes deletion of both items. App worth 5 stars if bug is fixed

Steve Louie

Works well Had a problem with the previous update where the app would crash on open. The 10/6 update fixed the issue. Very quick response from the developer.

Sachin Tennakoon

Superb I will give more than 5 stars,( but unfortunately the maximum is 5). But can you fix the problem with backup location. ?

Swapnil Dharane

Its really great except... I am not able to delete files/folders.The app is crashing when I try to do so. Even after the latest update

Darren Soh Colz

Uninstalled. Delete a whole folder of videos in Amaze but it still shows up under device folders in Google Photo. After downloading a new Gallery app found that the folder is still there !! But it doenst shows up in Amaze. Some how just "hidden" the file but its wasting the device memory!!!

Very Basic Feature For Any File Management System Is A BUG Here ! Yeah! You've Fixed The Copying Issue Perfectly. I'm Impressed ? . But The Only Reason Behind 2 Stars & Uninstalling Application Is That- CUT Option Is Just Name, Bcoz Actually It Does COPY OPERATION. About Rest Of The Things, Proud To See This MADE IN INDIA Application Has Comparatively Better Logical Interface Than Others Like Solid Explorer Classic Which Have Over Hyped Interface (Consisting Unnecessary Elements & Icons). & BEST PART OF THE AMAZE IS LOWEST RAM CONSUMPTION ?...

Kurt Appolis

Really good material design Works well and intuitive. Files don't appear to move when you cut them over tabs - am i doing it wrong?

sam sern wee

Any way make the paste option in bar permanently shown, instead of having to drag down the bar to see it? Unable to search file in subfolders

Renzo Pacheco

Good This app has a lot of nice features and a great interface, but I've face a problem a lot of times, some files I've deleted still show up and the samd happens once I've cut and moved them to another location, they just duplicate. It's kind of annoying.

Appears ok, but by whatever reason corrupts PDF files (20 pages file) when copying from internal storage to microSD card. Looking for alternative.

Patrick Grace

Just crashes Tried to delete file and it crashed. Tried to copy a file and it crashed. Though this would be good replacement for ESFile but it fails miserably.

Felix Bachofner

Constantly crashes I love that this is open source, but the fact that it crashes all the time is a real problem. I'll try on another device soon.

Kenn Gerard Cal

Easily one of the best If not THE best file management app out there. Minimalistic features (kinda) but such a good user experience.

Shyam Sundar

Could have had LAN Tab!! Many file managers now have option to connect to PC connected on same WiFi. This add-on to this file manager should certainly make it the best file manager which it is not today.

young chun

Very good but the cut function... Amazing app but the cut function simply works as a copy function. Everytime I use the cut and paste I have to go back and delete the file from before. Please fix this ASAP!

robert karton

Crash On Nexus 5 with 6.0.1 when I try to open as card folder the app crash.

Purnendu Podder

Awesome Alternative to ES File Explorer Sweetly Materialised. Very clean and minimalistic design. But what I am missing in it is the use of gestures. Hope to see the same in the future updates

Works great No feature bloat is the best feature. Does one thing and it does it well.

Trevor S

Was using it but now just crashes Installed Amaze some months ago but now I can't use it. I go to open it and it always reports 'Amaze has stopped'. Using a Nexus 5

Pankaj Purohit

Clutterfree simple file browser Minimalstic clutter-free file browser without any bloats which does the jib and does it very well. Icing on the cake, its open source

No annoying ads in your face! Awesome file manager with no annoying ads!

Macovei Vlad

Every time I press the the recent apps button the app crashes.

keVin Ş

Scroll issue When I try to use the scroll bar (instead of swiping my fingers) the transition is not good, it just flickers...

mike malczewski

Great file manager Does what it's supposed to do and best of all it's free! Way better than any other ones on the Play Store.

Vishal Srivastava

Cut doesn't work If I cut and paste, it just copies. The source files are never deleted. Fix it please.

Ivica Janev

Deserves the name This is excellent. Would like to request the developer to include different icon sizes (smaller icons if possible) and grid view for all folders. Good work

Joe Bennett

Great file manager I really like this. My only request would be to add support for cloud storage ( Google drive, drop box, etc). Awesome program.

Saman Saadi

This app plus ghost commander can beat non-free ones.

John Ciarfella

Great !!!!! but crashes Nice job so far But saving the 5th star for when its a little more stable.

Crashes, nice interface Looks good but crashes on create folder

Thomas Kemmer

Free and Open Source Finally... a small, simple, free file manager that has all the functionality you need and also looks nice! Thanks for making this Open Source!

Joel Hill

Finally Found the File Explorer I've Been Looking For! It's perfect. File storage integration would be nice, but it's a fantastic app.

p pang

Bugs Nice file manager but has bugs related to move/copy/paste operations(fails everytime )
