Spotlight: Amaze File Manager for Android is a nifty little app that's just starting out
In need of a file manager switchover? Cool! Why not give Amaze File Manager a try? This is an up and coming file manager app for Android devices running 4.0 and up. Right now, it's a pretty modest open source type of project, but we think it's full of potential. Not that one can be particularly innovative with file managers when there are so many of them nowadays, but that actually makes Amaze's point for minimalism rather interesting.

Amaze is styled in Material Design, which Android users are now quite familiar with. It also offers quick access to basic, but fundamental features like cut, copy, delete, compress, extract, and others. It is also easy to work in multiple tabs open at the same time and use the built-in App Manager to open, backup, or directly uninstall an app. History, bookmarks, and file search are easy options too, and what's even better, all of Amaze's features are freely available without any ads.

Amaze is work in progress, but stable enough to be used as an alternative to the favorite file manager that you probably have already. Grab it from the Play Store and give it a spin.

This looks like a straight up copy of Solid Explorer.

Yup, always been my choice of file manager for Android. Just grab the apk of the premium version and you're all set.

"Just grab the apk of the premium version and you're all set." Advantage of Android to a User But Big - no - MASSIVE disadvantage to the developer! Android needs to remove side loading of apps feature from the os.

I disagree. People are always going to try to pirate software and multimedia. I see no reason in making us all suffer for the irresponsibility of a few bad actors. Side loading software on Android is a definite plus and needs to stay.
