Ghost Commander is a dual-panel file manager (as well as a FTP, SFTP, SMB, WebDAV, Drive, BOX, Dropbox client!) which will let you to manage your files locally or remotely as well as tweak your system in the root mode.

This is an open source software (see and does not show any advertisement! The project exists only because of your donations.

The main idea behind the user interface is classic: copy and move files from one panel to another. Simple.
Also, to not overload the display with extra checkboxes, file selection is made as follows: each file row is divided by two zones: tapping on the left you open files and folders, tapping on the right you select multiple items. If you are left handed, that could be swapped in the settings.

Writing access to external sdcard drives and USB OTG is provided through a special "Storage Access Framework" mode. Native mode can give only a read-only access to external drives.

Ghost Commander supports FTP and SFTP servers and Windows network shares, as well as Google Drive, BOX and Dropbox cloud storage (plugin required), plus it can create/extract ZIP archives and work with as it was a regular folder.
For advanced users, this file manager also supports root (superuser) mode, which is essential to work with protected system files on a rooted devices, like to change file permission attributes/owners (chmod/chown) and even execute your own shell commands (busybox required).

This file manager is very customizable and comes with a lot of options which allow you to adjust its appearance and behavior to your personal tastes and habits.

Here's a list of the file manager's features which include, but are not limited to:
* easy sorting by name, extension, size or date
* customizable multiselect (by tapping, or select by wildcards)
* root / superuser (su) mode: remount partitions and make changes in system files
* change file owner and permissions (in root mode only)
* working with files via the MediaStore perspective (which allows writing access to external SDcard on Kitkat)
* ZIP archive support: create and extract ZIP files, view inside a ZIP without extracting
* built-in FTP client: upload to/download from your own site or a public one
* favorite shortcuts for folders and locations
* calculation of file and folder size and MD5 and SHA-1
* file search by content and other properties
* text editor (built-in or external)
* text and picture viewers
* sends files via email, Bluetooth and so on
* personalization: colors, font size, interface language, custom toolbar, etc
* Windows network support via an optional SMB plugin
* Streaming audio/video from a remote location to a player app
* Access to the Google Drive, Dropbox and BOX or any WebDAV enabled cloud storage (with plugins)

4 ★ 20180204-Su., …3-Sa., …: up' Martin D on February 03, 2018
4 ★ Fast & lightweight. The only thing I don't like is the paths -- / is unnecessary, and it would be nice to hide the full path of favorites. There's another issue, if I go to internal storage, then up and ok, then tap emulated it won't go to emulated (internal storage) thus the only way to get back to internal storage is go to home, Anonymous on January 12, 2018
5 ★ Totally deleted ES File Explorer Pro after discovering this gem! Reminds me of X-tree gold for dos. This app is totally customizable and is constantly getting updates!by WallyA. Prichard on November 14, 2017
5 ★ FTP, SMB, android, GDrive. Is there anything this app won't do and it's free! Worth every penny of the donation and this is how apps should be distributed. Well done Ghost Squared. you've set the standard Jason Brooks on December 21, 2017
5 ★ A great file explorer. Also you can use ssh of sftp to transfer files to and from your real computer. Just setup an ssh server on your home box. Set up a domain name service or know your IP address. You migt have to setup port forwarding on your Anonymous on January 15, 2018
4 ★ If you knew the old program Norton Commander on the PC then you know what I'm talking about. R you working with files management? Get this! Glad that they fixed the bug that appeared that made it impossible to zip files (awesome feature) Feature(s) I'd like to see n miss are sync/check for differences between folders n option to quickly select the different files. Also to be able to connect to networks via VPNby Mikael Söderberg on November 25, 2017
5 ★ I have tried plenty of other file managers but this one has them all beat with the amount of customization you can have. I was even able to apply a custom font I made of my own handwriting with no root(note 5) The addons make everything so convenient having all the necessities in one app. I move lots of files from my phone to a ReadyNAS and this app makes it seemess. I had an obscure problem so I emailed the dev and he was on it instantly. Couple emails later everything was squared away, user error lol. Give this app a try if you're looking for something new, a change of pace from your current or just compare it to what you're using now and don't be suprised if it's the other app that gets checked under your disabler!by Mike Clark on November 16, 2017
3 ★ Can't delete / cut files / folders without root? Didn't have this problem in old phone / older android. Stock file manager is cripled by ads but is João Sousa on December 12, 2017
2 ★ No gain over Total Commander: Access to SDCard using stock file manager is awful. Total Commander provides its native interface for that too (so it's quite obviously possible).by Anonymous on November 30, 2017
5 ★ just updated and found that the Info button has disappeared from the toolbar. Hopefully it is still available in the A Google User on November 13, 2017

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
