This is my first android application. I was using an application for windows to view what was eating up my ssd and thought it would be nice to have something on android that could do that.

I also implemented file manager controls (copy,cut,paste,delete,rename,new folder).

As I said I'd really like some feedback, being my first app and all.

Free(ads): Grid Size File Manager Free
Demo(noads): **Unpublished** not needed with free version.
Paid(noads): Grid Size File Manager
(links in next post, thanks willverduzco)

From the app description (What it does!):
Grid Size file manager has all the functionality you expect from a file manager with a useful visual feature. The grid view graphically displays the contents of your storage drive proportional to the size of each folder and file. The grid view also supports image controls so that you can zoom and pan to view folders.

Standard list view is also available for the folder tree, useful for typical file manager functionality and for interacting with files and folders that are empty and thus not displayed in the grid view.

To begin, tap the "scan storage" button. After scan is complete, you are shown your folders via GridView. See below to access ListView. Tap on a colored box to open a folder, labeled via the lighter colored band at the top of each box. To open a file within a folder, simply tap that box and select "ok" when prompted to open that file.

You can zoom in at any time with a standard pinch zoom. You can also pan around by holding your finger down and dragging across the screen. Press and hold on a folder or file to interact with it. Available commands include: open, copy, cut, paste, rename, delete and new folder. Tap the back button on your phone to go back to the previous level of folders.

Here are my requests
"open folder location" in file manager controls
Add % in Grid mode

This app is petty kick ass. I've always wondered where the heck all my free space went

Great app, could do with smooth animations and zooming like DiskUsage, otherwise I think I prefer your app. Loads much faster than DiskUsage does! Will come in handy when frantically trying to free up some space to copy something to the SD card.

psycho_maniac, thanks for the suggestions!

Those would be pretty easy to implement. When you say open folder location you mean like you can type in a location and it will open it?

Or maybe even have some sort of search functionality would be pretty useful.

kdb, antcodd, thank you!

ukanth, it has the kb indication on the grid folders and files. I does not have it in the list view. I could put the kb in the current folder status bar at the bottom but currently I only have the percentage of storage and folder name.

These are great suggestions! Keep them coming!

No I mean like long press on a location, lets say i see the "media" folder in /sdcard/media" using 50% long pess on that grid and select "open folder location" and it opens "/sdcard/media" with your default file explorer and you can delete stuff.
