The Android file manager with Material Design : Cabinet

 

You have just installed the new update of Android "L" for 5 or Nexus Nexus 7 and want a file manager look compatible? Are you a fan of the new Material Design of Google? Cabinet will be your favorite file manager.

As for the features, there is all you need - basic operations on files, create documents and folders, side navigation menu with ability to insert shortcuts and automatic extraction of the files zip. You can also explore and manipulate folders and system files, devices that have root access. But there is still much to be done, according to us, rather than the FTP support , which now is a protocol not widespread and too cumbersome for the general public, we would like the ability to manage cloud storage services such as Dropbox and Google Drive , support exploration of the local LAN and the implementation of the management of file permissions (chmod and chown) for root devices.
In any case, as there is not really bad start. We are curious to know how the project will evolve. The in-app purchases reported by Google are actually simple donations to the developer that will not add any function to the app, which is ad-free and open-source . You will need a device based on at least Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) to spin Cabinet. The size is negligible, just over 1MB
Cabinet takes advantage of the new guidelines for the design of Android and L offers a ' clean interface, tidy and extremely intuitive. The icon set is stylized, simple dark silhouette of a large and showing only the essential details. The view is available only in a detailed list , a practical solution but less pleasant in the grid view (especially in the galleries of images), which, however, the developer plans to support. Also excellent performance: Cabinet is always responsive and fluid .
After Cabinet is still in the beta phase in the material design, you have to go through the usual Google-play beta procedure to install the latest version on your androids can:
