Review Total Commander

Jay Feldman
Functions quickly, simple interface
Low-quality design
Total Commander for Android is a barebones file explorer, similar to a desktop file manager on PC but with none of the pleasantries.
Total Commander makes no real effort to look modern or inviting. I don’t think it even qualifies as being called minimalist. The app’s interface is skeletal at best. It functions fairly well, bet then, it had better, given that there's virtually nothing going on here.
The screen is split into two columns; each side capable of displaying its own path to your Android’s innards. This split screen presentation is actually the best feature of this app and makes copy and paste functions much easier and user friendly. You can also select multiple files and zip them in to a compressed package and even add encryption if you like.
I appreciate the direct approach to the presentation, but still would like to see a little more development in this arena. Barebones is fine, but the app should at least look like it was programmed for the current OS, and not a holdover from Android 1.5. Minimalist doesn't have to be ugly, and the current look of this app inspires little confidence.
Several functions require root access, so just judging this as a file explorer alone, I’d have to say this is pretty mediocre. Other than the split screen, this app offers nothing that others haven’t already done better.
Total Commander is a competent file explorer, but not the least bit memorable. I can’t think of a single reason why you should use this one over any of the more refined apps available out there, except maybe that it's free. However, if no-frills is your thing, than few apps do it better than this.
