* root / superuser (su) mode: remount partitions and make changes to critical system files
* change file owner and permissions (in root mode only)
* ZIP archive support: create and extract ZIP files, plus view inside without extracting

Excellent for frequently moving files around. It could mark files, then move them in batches. It got RESIZEABLE thumbnails, fonts, different colours of fonts. Minus a STAR cuz it's hard to use on small screen device's, or by people with big thumbs, or without a stylus. And for not being able to swipe between image files inside the Image Viewer.

Отличная программа, самый удобный файловый менеджер! Давно пользуюсь этим файловым менеджером - с самого начала использования Android, но в последнее время появилась проблема - папки с картинками не удаляются сразу. При удалении папки с фото или видео, она вроде как исчезает, но после перезахода в папку, удалённая папка опять появляется, но уже пустая. Получается он удаляет только файлы внутри папки, но не удаляет саму папку. Только со второго раза удаётся удалить (уже пустую) папку. Если бы не этот досадный баг, был бы идеальный файловый менеджер.
