I tried on my phone and tablet through the Play Store. There are many similarly-named apps, but no ES File Explorer. What happened to it ?
Google probably removed it
QuickPic is back on Google Play Store while ES File Explorer disappears
It is actually available on play store too for a price of Rs.380 for people who want to support the developer as it is quite popular on xda forums but donation is only available via bitcoin which many can't do.How do we know that it is a safe app ?
Yes, Solid Explorer is the most used by Rooting community, where they know what file they are changing for customization & tweak. Not for Naive users though.Have you guys used Solid Explorer? I personally use the pro version of it and it works good enough. If you have root, you can also browse your root FS plus it has support for various cloud storage providers and FTP/SFTP protocol support for remote file storage. You can also transfer data from your phone to any device by hosting a FTP server on your phone from Solid Explorer.
Yes it has and the same features are also present in other File Explorers. Only thing is to be cautious while using Solid in system partition because it gives more privilege to users in system r/w access as compared to other explorers.All the features I've mentioned are good for non-root users as well.
I tried the file sharing in FX Explorer today.Does it have any method to give and take files from PC ?
I use Files by Google & it is quite good for transferring between mobiles, have you tried it.If you are on same network you can use SMB feature..
In MiXplorer you get more speed compare to FX,
I use both.
For large files I use MiX for smaller I use FX (because of UI)
Its not that good compared to MiXplorer IMO. I create ftp server and hotspot (if required) and don't need to turn GPS/bluetooth on to share files. This is another app I use to quick share stuff between my own devices:I use Files by Google & it is quite good for transferring between mobiles, have you tried it.
I know it is not as good but for a typical person not knowing anything other than app install from playstore(useful if other device belongs to such person), it is fine(mixplorer playstore version is not free).Its not that good compared to MiXplorer IMO.
