Tomi File Manager is a fast and convenient Android file manager app that automatically organizes your photos, music, videos, documents, apps plus downloaded content into sub-categories.
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy S4
Pros & Cons:
- Fast file management with convenient shortcuts!
- Automatically organizes your files!
- Features a traditional hierarchical file manager for more advanced users!
- Clean UI!
- Missing support for compressed files like Zip and RAR.
- Occasional force close errors.
Tomi File Manager is straightforward and the key feature automatically groups your files into sub-categories. This is very convenient for browsing files. By default it sorts items like music by date, but goes farther to sort by call recordings, ringtones, all music on the device, or like traditional means by folder hierarchy.
Upon first opening the app you’re greeted by theDashboard which shows a general summary of the space available on your device (including SD Card). This shortcuts to the storage utility settings of your device. Separately it has a traditional hierarchical file manager for more advanced users. I like the ‘Common’ button in this component because it serves as a storage summary and shortcut for typical starting locations on your device. The core features, however, organizes shortcuts for Music, Pictures, Videos, Docs, Apps and Downloads. I’ll briefly outline the features of each (most have typical file manager features like copy, cut, move, paste, share and viewing file details):
- Music: sorts music by songs, albums, artists, and years. Music is handed off to your default music player app.
- Pictures: feature a basic photo viewer.
- Videos: hand off playback to default video player app.
- Docs: hands off to default document app type but has a built-in text file viewer with editor.
- Apps: shows all your installed apps and has a batch uninstaller feature (note: it does not have an app backup feature.)
- Downloads: group all the files that reside in your ‘Downloads’ folder.
Tomi File Manager is quite good but lacking support for compressed files associations like Zip and RAR. In my case it handed off to other file manager app’s compressed file viewers. This is a concern as it leads me desire to use the referred file manager app. The developer is actively improving the app so I envision this to be a non-issue for long.
