This newer improved beta version developed by GMobile steps in where others have failed and provides one of the best file management apps available.
File Expert Concept Version (Beta) has quite a few new features from its older version, although it still stays along the same line of file managing and file navigation. It allows the creation of multiple tabs and the ability to swipe to switch between them, thereby facilitating the copying, moving, and pasting process.
File Expert Concept Version (Beta) also lets the user perform frequently-used features simply by swiping right, which helps save time when it comes to trying to find the gallery, recycle bin, etc.
Another feature is the optional Cloud Management that it supports, letting the user pair it with their Dropbox account (Beta), and eventually with other Cloud services like Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, Sugarsync, Yandex, MediaFire etc. in their final official version.
The developers have optimized File Expert Concept Version (Beta) for performance and function, so it barely takes up any of your device’s processing space while experiencing no lag when using it.
In addition, File Expert Concept Version (Beta) does all of the usual file management things, such as letting the user: access all storage (e.g. flash memory, internal storage and external storage), copy, cut, move, paste, delete, rename, search, share, send, create new, create shortcuts, view file properties, batch mode operations, recycle, tags, all while having a simple and easy way to view and sort (grid or list, descending or ascending by name, size, time, or type) items.
File Expert Concept Version (Beta) simply lives up to the expectations of its older version with a better functional streamlined approach.
Appearance and Layout
The appearance of File Expert Concept Version (Beta) is clean, minimalist, and thorough with either a minimal black and white UI (current theme),
dark background with colored icons UI (dark theme), or a light colored background with colored icons (light theme). The dark theme seems superior, but it hasn’t been finalized yet.
File Expert Concept Version (Beta) also has the ability to be used in a horizontal mode, which makes it great for use on Android tablets.
This app has a plain and simple layout that easily lets users find what they are looking for, although first-time users might need to experiment a few minutes to gain a better understanding of the apps layout and flow.
Overall, the appearance and layout is remarkably simplistic and easy to use and the more visually appealing dark theme seems better to use than the other two.
File Expert Concept Version (Beta) is free to download (only 2.59 MB) and install from its APK. Since it’s a Beta version, it might not be as stable as the older File Expert with Clouds (also free but with In-App Purchases), but it has a more streamlined approach to file managing and is a pleasure to use.
This is a powerful file manager that easily lets the user navigate through the files on their device, and it is enjoyable to use. For a free file manager (albeit a beta version), File Expert Concept Version (Beta) will be tough to beat.
File Expert Concept Version (Beta) requires Android 4.1 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
