Tomi File Manager Update Brings Image Preview, Root Capabilities, and More

File management is a very basic need on Android. As such, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of file managers available for the platform. File managers are available in practically every shape and form. And because of the wide array of file managers available, it’s very difficult for any new file manager to stand out–but occasionally, one does.

A little under a month ago, we talked a little bit about Tomi File Manager by XDA Senior Member uuOuu. For those who don’t remember, Tomi set to differentiate itself from the sea of other file managers with its fantastic user interface and its ability to categorize your files into music, pictures, videos, documents, and apps. But despite the file manager’s many positive attributes, quite a few users found themselves looking elsewhere due to the lack of root access.

Now, Tomi File Manager has left its beta trial, and the latest versions bring many improvements over what we saw previously. Just like before, Tomi File Manager still features a fantastic user interface, which can organize files into distinct categories. It also still offers storage usage visualizations to show you just how much space you’re using with each file type. But recently, Tomi gained quite a few highly requested features such as root file management, a built-in image browser for instant picture previews, cut/paste support, and the ability to send folders to your desktop. In addition, you are now able to edit large text files from within the file manager, which when combined with the root explorer capabilities, makes for easy build.prop or hosts file editing.

If you’ve been looking for an extremely full featured (and user friendly) file manager, you should check out Tomi File Manager. And now that it offers root file management, there’s no excuse to not give this a shot. You can get started by heading over to the application thread.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
