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.

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
