New Solid Explorer file manager for Android intros split screen drag-and-drop

New Solid Explorer file manager for Android intros split screen drag-and-drop
Solid Explorer by NeatBytes is not your average file manager. It recently went out of beta, and has now wiggled its way into the Play Store with a two-week trial version, costing $1.75 afterwards. Granted, most file managers for Android are free, and your phone probably comes with one out of the box, too, but this is money well spent, considering what's on offer with Solid.

The version that graduated from beta features an interface that is in accordance with Google's latest Material Design guidelines, and, besides the all-important Chromecast support, now has linkages to most every popular cloud storage service you can think of: Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, Sugarsync, Copy, Mediafire, Owncloud, Yandex, and even Kim Dotcom's Mega service with its free 50 GB of storage. The app can also serve as a front for your own private storage, be it with the FTP, SFTP, WebDAv, or SMB/CIFS protocols.

When it comes to the Solid Explorer's interface, apart from being pretty in Material Design, you can preview files from two folders or categories in split screen mode, and drag and drop between them to move or copy. Take a tour in the video below, and give the trial a chance, if you are interested to see what's new and cool in the world of Android file managers.

I remembered using a file explorer with similar feature. This one looks better though.

TOO overpriced for a file manager (nearly 2 USD?) Amaze has Material Design, looks nice, performs almost all the functions this can do, and is free - NO STRINGS ATTACHED.

It's hands down the most aesthetically pleasing file manager but charging that much for it is sick.
