History Test

File Expert with Cloud V7

fev7_screen.png


1. UI makeover
Turquoise and white interface with newly-designed icons for more comforting and cleaner visuals.

2. New layout
Users can now swipe to the left and right to view different file directories: categories, Cloud and tool, which expedites
file locating and operating.

3. Cloud collection
The new File Expert is more than local file management, which gathers worldwidely mainstream Cloud services (Google Drive,
Dropbox, Box, Yandex, SkyDrive, SugarSync, KDrive and Vdisk); users are able to manage files on different Clouds in one App.

4. Small and optional
Smaller APK size: only 2.73 MB, remarkably reduces memory space.
Optional plugins: additional features can be added as plugins according to individual demand.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Clearer UI, practical features

I've installed the App on my phone, here's my feedback:
1. UI
The new version does improve a lot in UI: the fresh color impresses me, comparing with ES, Solid, Astro's rigid layouts... I believe the fresh style suits me better.
2. Recycle Bin
The feature is pretty practical for Android file management. I sometimes remove files by mistake on my phone and cannot do anything to recover them. It makes me feel like I am using Windows laptop!
3. Safebox
An in-build file safebox will be easier to use when you organize files on the phone; you can copy or move them to Cloud or safebox, double insurance!
4. Suggestion
File category is more frequently-used than advanced features, I suggest you highlight this part instead of advanced features.
When I try to add account to Google Drive, the App is forced to close(My phone is Xiaomi 2S). Please fix it ASAP.
Thank you for such a good-looking and helpful App!

I like the interface

Unlike grey, blue and other dark colors, File Expert takes a bold attempt in interface designing. Personally, I like the bright color blending.
As for the features, it meets my needs!

Unsmooth scroll!

Hi developer,
Here's my bug report:
1. The scroll is not smooth enough and the top bar will conceal when I swipe upward.
2. What's more, all operation seems slower than the previous, could it load faster?
Looking forward to your update!
