5.0 out of 5 stars File management made easy on the Kindle Fire and HD series September 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
So what is ES File Explorer, and why would you need it on a Kindle Fire or the newer Kindle Fire HD series? The Kindle Fire doesn't include a good file manager app, but this one works exceptionally well on this tablet device and other for help with navigating the directories and much more.

Windows users can look at this ES File Explorer as the equivalent of the Windows Explorer file management application and navigation tool that has been the operating system from Windows 95 on. Mac users should think of it being like the Finder on the Mac OS and OS X operating systems, which is responsible for the overall user-management of files and such. If you've never used the Windows Explorer on your PC or the Finder on your Mac, then in all honesty you might find this app to be of little use.

Speaking subjectively, I had downloaded this app in its earlier version here for the primary purpose of easily finding files on my Kindle Fire, and copying PDF files to the 'Documents' directory. Have also used it to upload a variety of JPG images to the 'Pictures' directory when I have photos to review with clients and friends, and it really works quite well with tasks like this.

If you download and install it, you'll find that the interface is deceptively smooth and easy to operate if you're used to using file management on a PC and on a Mac. But it can be somewhat dangerous in operation if you don't use common sense: if you don't know what you're poking at, leave it alone.

In addition to performing file management duties, some use it for installing third-party apps, for installing "sideloaded" apps onto the Kindle Fire, as there are wide variety of compatible apps from the Android market on the 'Net.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This App and Use It All The Time November 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you are familiar with Windows Explorer or the My Documents / My Computer features of Windows, you will feel right at home with this app. It is easy to quickly maneuver around on the file structure of your Kindle Fire and you can copy, paste, delete, etc. to your heart's content.

I picked this up for free in the Amazon App store about a year ago, and as I type this review the app is still free - if you have been looking for a good Explorer or file management app for your Kindle Fire, there is no need to look further as you should grab this one right away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Utility September 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
The ES File Explorer has solved some of my more vexing problems with my Kindle Fire. For instance, let's say you download a pdf manual from a manufacturer. Kindle Fire handles that by keeping the item in the downloads folder of your browser.

Well, let's say you actually want that document, in your documents folder. ES File Explorer solves that.

Very intuitive, but be careful as you will now have the freedom to delete some very important files.

Access and control of your content is what ES File Explorer serves up, and it does it with a nice looking interface and customizable themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire Users, Its The Holy Grail !!!!!!!!! November 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought the Kindle Fire for grad school to "organize" and keep my pdf's and research material on one device. The HORROR after two weeks of use, 30 pdfs, 5 textbooks, and 15 free ebooks later was maddening. I spent two days searching discussion boards before i finally picked up the buzzword "file manager" and searched for apps. Ijust downloaded this and almost cried with delight and relief. All of my documents instantly were uploaded and organized in folders with drop down list views like in windows explorer. Granted the naming convention for already exsting docs is a little annoying and I will probably spend my friday night renaming files, but its soo worth it! Now I have no more buyers remorse. This solves the "collection" and organizing documents problem new kindle users are facing.

1.0 out of 5 stars VIRUS STILL EMBEDED - 5/28/2014 May 28, 2014
By MUvaney
Verified Purchase
A lot of times when I read reviews I look at dates they were posted because older ones often get fixed by updates or can be discredited do to something like a complaint about what an app costs and not working way a person wanted it to, but now in app store price has dropped, this isn't one of those cases. Reviewers have stated finding an "MMarket Pay" virus tied to this app and I just ran a MobiShield virus scan on my Kindle and the virus is still very much embedded in this software on 5-28-2014. I ran 2 other virus scan software and way they work is just show a bar run across your screen and if they find something a second bar run by saying "cleaning" but aren't specific as to what they find or where it was found, so it wasn't until MobiShield scan was ran that I was able to identify virus and where it came from.
So there is that, which is enough to annoy and lead me to immediately delete the app.
Secondly, I found this in the app store when looking for flash player... if you expect this to help with flash issues it won't.
Next, file sorting ability... opened and was going to try it but the program is NOT intuitive at all. If you aren't familiar with it, it isn't easy to figure out and use easily. I wouldn't bother with this app!

TO AMAZON: As Kindle user we go to the Amazon AppStore because it easy and readily available, and maybe this is a little naÔve, but we in turn are giving you our trust that apps are at least moderately accurate to description and not harmful virus filled crap. Yes all things should be buyer beware, but there should also be some trust between the provider (you) of something and it's buyer.

The "sd card" on the Kindle Fire HD is actually a folder - not a physical SD card. I think the folder's location is /mnt/sdcard. I had read that plugging a Kindle Fire into a Windows machine's USB port causes it to mount like a flash drive (Mac users have to install the Android File... Read More
