UNCOPT File Browser for all Your File Management Needs

Since the introduction of Ice Cream Sandwich, Android has been rather stringent on developers because of the whole Holo requirements set forth by Google. Essentially, ROMs are required to have this theme in the ROMs in order to be able to access the Play Store. Because of this and because a seamless aesthetic always looks better, many app developers have focused on trying to implement the Holo look on all their creations. The result is a myriad of launchers, themes, widgets, etc that tend to give those on AOSP (and variants) a nice and lightly themed device. The latest inclusion to the “Holo family” is a file browser and manager created by XDA Forum Member uncopt.

UNCOPT File Browser is, as its name clearly states, a file manager capable of doing what most file managers can do today and more. One of its biggest features is something that TotalCommander fans will certainly appreciate, which is a split panel view to easily move files from one directory to the next. Panels are independent of each other and can be resized, which is a handy feature for devices that lack a bit on the screen real estate department. The app also has a very nice way of handling compressed archives which makes it stand out a little more. The files, upon being opened, are not decompressed or extracted on temporary directories or even on memory, which is a great way of not hogging down resources on your device. This last bit is of particular use for lower end devices, which may not have as much available internal memory. Moreover, the app offers the ability to view and open nested archives.

Some other features include full keyboard navigation, automatic sync of MTP and MediaStore, and all the root level access goodness that you are used to having (navigate up to root, change permissions, mounting system storage as read or read/write, etc). The dev is looking for some feedback to make the app better. If you have any features that you think may be worth considering, please let the dev know by posting your feedback.

UNCOPT File Browser is the nicest and most innovative Holo styled file browser for Android with root capabilities.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
