Total Commander v2.6 update makes things look more Material-esque for the mobile file manager app

Total Commander just got updated today, and it became just a little bit less ugly than it used to be. The desktop file manager we all love has a mobile version as well, and, even if it wasn’t pretty, it did its job. Not it also got a nice makeover.

Version 2.6 is making an effort it bringing things to the Material side. It is far from becoming a good looking device, but it’s on its way there. The app has an overall dark UI and below you can see the entire changelog:

  • Android 5: write to external SD-Card without root
  • New material design icons on Android 5 (configurable, also on older versions)
  • Larger default space between icons and file names (configurable)
  • Option to hide status bar also on phones with Android 4 or newer
  • Show all user buttons in grayscale when using new button style
  • Load JPG thumbnails from EXIF data (faster)
  • Create new folder in “Save as” dialog
  • Media Player notification: Small “x” button to close player




The Play Store still shows the old screenshots, but you can install or update to see Total Commander in all of its new and improved splendor.

HTC File Manager in the Google Playstore – easier file management with a touch of Sense

HTC File Manager is finally on the Google Playstore and from now on you will be able to “file manage” everything on your phone with a Sense style. File managers are usually not flashy or exciting apps, but everyone needs them.

HTC File Manager is a system app that offers better access to the SD card and, considering you can find it in the Playstore, it will receive faster updates as they will not be system updates per se.




The app requires a recent HTC device to work, preferably one running on Android 4.4 and up. Even in this case it can be limited as some device SKUs and regions can be problematic in accessing the app, but let’s hope this issue will be fixed soon. You can find the HTC File Manager free in the Google Playstore.
