Sliding Explorer: Holo, Clean, and Simple

We’ve featured plenty of feature-packed file explorers, many of them seamlessly integrating various functions and features of other apps into one little package. ES File Explorer, for example, packs a whole suite of tools, support for a variety of cloud storage services, and more. However, those who would rather a file explorer without the extras and cherry on top, may find what they’re looking for with Sliding Explorer.

Developed by XDA Forum Member shirwa, Sliding Explorer ticks every box a regular user will expect and require from a top notch file explorer. Gorgeous user interface with Holo design? Check. Access to root files? Check. Straightforward controls and options for selecting, copying, cutting and renaming? Check. A very small app size? Check.

But wait, what’s the ‘sliding’ in Sliding Explorer? Good spotting. Tap the top left corner of the app, and out slides the app’s shortcuts to the SD card and system directories. Favorite folders will also appear in the sliding quick panel, and folders can be bookmarked by simply long pressing on a folder and selecting the favorite action. Long pressing will also allow you to share folders and files to cloud storage and social networks.

Sliding Explorer has just begun its beta phase of testing, so Shirwa is welcoming any bug reports or suggestions. The app is compatible with any device running Android version 4.0 or newer, and is totally free for all. If you would like to give this a go, slide over to the application thread, as well as its Google+ page for more information.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
