    I'd recommend MiXplorer. You can find it here.

    I used to use ES File Explorer, but have discontinued using it due to security concerns.

    If you're rooted, try Root Explorer.

    What are the security concerns on ES FE?
    Heck I've been using it since before my GNex...

    Hey Efin!

    Here's a little more on ES. It all may be benign, but I'm not going to take any chances. MiXplorer (pronounced "mix" plorer) is great - wish I would have found it sooner!

    Jim, sounds like the word should go out on the ES issue. As much as I am on these forums, I can't see how I missed that.

    Agreed for Root Explorer, I have it on my Nexus 7 and 10, but ES was on the S5

    I recommend "File Manager" by Asus. Does the best job on my local network of Any I've tried.
