The best free commander on the app store for sure!
Thanks for the favorites customization and a dark theme.

very good file manager

Thanks for a such product. I use free version and very happy with it, as it provides me with almost all functions that I usualy need.
The most missing function in the free version is absense of internal viewer, however I believe that it is a good compromise to have a such quality product for free.

… но Pro версия стоит оч. дорого, лучше тогда уж CRAX тогда купить. Хотя меня бесплатная пока устраивает.
