Home Screen

Local Catalogs
The home screen displays the list of file, media, and network catalogs available on your device. The "Files" section shows the device's user accessible storage and internal system storage file systems. The "Media" section allows you to access all of your audio tracks, images, and video files directly.
Network Catalogs
The network catalogs are used to access Windows network shares, FTP sites, and SSH (Secure Shell) servers. The Bluetooth catalog is used to pair Bluetooth devices and browse Bluetooth FTP servers.

File Catalogs

Browsing Files: Icon View
Tapping on the "Main Storage" or "Media Card" catalog will open the file browser into the root directory of the user storage area.
Browsing Files: List View
Files can be browsed in either the icon view or the list view. Changing views is as simple as opening the "View" menu and then tapping the "Icon View" or "List View" options. The icon view shows a more compact display, while the list view provides additional information.
Cut & Paste
File can be moved and copied by selecting them and then either cutting or copying them to the clipboard. This screen shows the result of selecting three files and then opening the file menu and pressing copy. Files are selected using a Swipe-to-Select gesture.

Media Catalogs

Music Home
Opening the Music/Audio catalog displays an overview of audio tracks and allows you to browse them by artist, album, playlist, or all at once.
Browsing by Album
This screen shows the browse-by-album method of looking at audio tracks.
Image Home
Opening the "Images" catalog shows an overview of images/photos stored on the device. You can specifically look at only camera images, images grouped by their containing folder, or see all images stored on the device.
Browsing Images
This screen shows the image browser for a particular image folder.

Network Catalogs

Network Home
This screen is a network home, showing bookmarks for a particular type of network connection (FTP in this case). The green and red dots indicate the result of a connectivity test (ping) to see if the servers are currently available.
Connection Editor
The connection editor is used to edit connection bookmarks. Shown in this screen is a Windows networking bookmark.
Browsing Network Shares
Browsing a remote server is little different than browsing your device's memory card. Files can be cut, copied, pasted, and deleted. The File menu also contains a quick "Download" option to save selected items to your device.
Bluetooth Home
The Bluetooth screen shows paired devices and allows you to pair new devices entirely from within the app. The Bluetooth Push server is started from this screen. Tapping on the listed paired devices provides the option to browse their shared files using Bluetooth FTP.

Menus

"Action" Menu
The "Action" menu is shown at the left on each screen. Its name and content varies based on the type of screen, e.g., when viewing a list of files as shown in this screenshot it is a "File" menu.
View Menu
The "View" menu contains options for controlling how the screen's content is displayed.
Windows Menu
The "Windows" menu enables you to manage and switch between multiple open windows. The "Operations" option will open a list of currently active background operations, e.g., files that are in the process of being transferred.

Operations

Operation Dialog
The operation dialog appears whenever you begin a new potentially long-running operation, e.g., copying files or downloading from an FTP site. You can press the close button (or back key on your device) to clear this dialog while still allowing the operation to continue.
Operations Window
Tapping the "Operations" item within the "Windows" menu will reveal this activity. It shows the list of ongoing, completed, and failed operations.

File Viewers

Text File Viewer
The text viewer can be used to display plain-text files, such as source code, HTML, or text notes.
Binary File Viewer
A handy feature for software developers, the binary file viewer can display the raw contents of any file.
Image Viewer
The image viewer can be used to display PNG, JPEG, and other image types supported by your Android device. You can zoom in and out by pinching and spreading your fingers on the touch screen.
Archive Extractor
An archive extractor is provided to extract zip files. (Zip files can also be created using the file browser.)

Details Activity

File Details
You can open a "details" view for any item. In this screenshot, we've opened the details information for an image file. In addition to displaying the path, size, and date of the file, the details view will show you any additional metadata that can be retrieved from the file. In the case of an image, the "EXIF" embedded photo data is shown. For images, tapping the "globe" icon will display the GPS position where the picture was taken using Google Maps.
Folder Details
When viewing details on a folder (or system catalog, e.g., the Media Card), FX will display a breakdown of its filesystem ("disk space") usage. This screenshot shows the details of a music folder.
Overall Usage
When viewing details on a folder/catalog, a second pie chart at the bottom displays the folder's size relative to the available and used space on its storage medium.
