[androidguys]My new default file browser: Tomi File Manager

Tomi-File-Manager

Sometimes, I’m just not satisified with what my phone comes with my default, such as the messaging app or the file browser. When I first heard about Tomi File Manager, I saw the pictures and was impressed with an app that looks to take file browsing to the next level. Not only was it actually appealing to look at (unlike most file managers), the navigation was easy and everything is categorized very nicely.

The main UI is unique and even provides a quick glimpse at how much space is being used on your phone. I love the Apps tab because you can simply scroll through and check mark multiple apps and uninstall them rather than doing it the longer way in your apps drawer. Managing all other files is nice and easy too. Once in the Music tab, all files are sorted and can be viewed by song title, artist, album or even year created.

The directory is nice and supports rooted phone file managing which can be switched on in the settings page as shown below, which is always a plus considering some file managers charge extra for that feature. Oh, and did I mention this whole app is free and I’ve yet to see a single pesky ad on it? Whether that’s the case in the future, I do not know. But I like where the app is right now.

[xda-developers]Tomi File Manager Receives Substantial Update

The vast world of something as simple as file managers has evolved substantially since the long gone days of Windows Mobile. Our current file managers do so much more than show us with pretty graphics where our stuff is located. With the right permissions, file managers in Android can allow the user to perform everything from file maintenance to categorizing, and even uninstalling system apps. Earlier this year, we spoke about a file manager here on the XDA Portal that goes by the name of Tomi File Manager. Not long after, the app grew and evolved into a far more sophisticated tool, and because of the work put into it, we decided to look at it once again. It is now over a month later, and we visit this app once again only to see that XDA Senior Member uuOuu has been putting some overtime on this wonderful app.

This new iteration of Tomi file manager has been blessed with more root level privileges such as the ability to uninstall some of that good old fashioned stock apps (also known as bloatware) that our beloved carriers seem to enjoy trying to shove down our throats. Also, the app’s UI was somewhat revamped and has an easier to use menu bar to improve handling of files. A few other updates also include the ability to manage files in Dropbox, 7zip management, more languages, and even now supports handling of files via SMB and FTP. Lastly, if you are an Instagram user, you can now use Tomi to let Instagram pic the pictures by using its interface.

This app is a great example of the developer listening to feedback from users. If you look at the second post in the thread, you will see the results of polls created by the OP, which includes lists of all the things suggested by you (the users) to be implemented into the app. It is a constant work in progress and as you can tell, the feedback is what has made this app take off like it has. So, please stop by and see if you can think of something to make it even better. You can find more information in the Tomi File Manager app thread.

[gsmdroid]Tomi File Manager

What is the most important app when you want to organise your smartphone content or files. A File-manager.

In Google Play Store there are variety of File managers available some paid, some free. Nowadays many manufacturers have their own app out of the box to help new buyers. But that’s always not the case as users have their own taste of choice and their needs. So if you are reading this article then you must be very well aware of what a file manager do and will have your own choice of one installed. Well today, I found one file manager that is not only serves it’s purpose but also avoid the need for constantly organizing your documents, download or media and also act as app manager. It’s called the Tomi File Manager developed by TomiTools

Main Menu

At first,  I thought this app would be a same normal looking stack of folders or files showing my contents and will be same scrolling up and down as I have a lot of folders. But once I opened the app, I found a total different layout to the one we have been seeing till now. This file manager is reminiscent of carousal tray or old telephone Dialers. But that old style retro looks does a pretty good job in adding to aesthetics of app.

The developer made good use of the Circle or Ring that surrounds the menus which is actually to display phone storage in percentage. Colour scheme used for displaying the storage is grey and light blue which goes very well with the plain white background. 

The Dialer look of file manager hosts six icons each for Docs, Videos, Music, Pictures, Apps and Download. Icon name itself makes their use clear at the very first glance.

Docs will contains all your usual documents like word, Excel sheets and will sorted with latest file on top.

Videos menu will display all your video content on your smartphone based on timestamp by default. But you have option to display it based on folder where you saved as in normal File Managers. A notable feature is the HideList option which allows users to hide their content from displaying.

As Videos menu, Music will also show your music files and provide you look of a music player like layout allowing user to display music either based on Songs, Album, Artists or Year ( date ) of the music file.  If you want to manually sort out the files based on names, size and so on … possibilities are endless. By Default Music files are displayed but there more options to show audio files based on Music, Call Recordings, Ringtones and Folder. HideList option is available here too.

 Pictures will contains all the image files which is really fantastic, because a normal heavy user like me keeps on taking photos using variety of apps and grouping of them is done very simple here. I don’t have time to organize all this stuff but this app laid out the pictures very well with latest files atop in the list which is available here and for all other menu`s. If you have other folders containing screenshots it should be accessible of menu up top as in case of Videos and Music.

Picture Menu

Next is the Apps menu. This is section were the Tomi FileManager comes in handy as it can act as a App manager too. Under Apps you will find all your installed apps that are downloaded by you, pre-installed and the apk section. The App manager also have options to Backup your installed apps, Uninstall them or Delete the apks. Multiple selection is allowed if you want to perform any above task for more than one app.

Apps Menu showing 3 options

Lastly, the Downloads menu, this actually shows  your download folder from your phone and SD card storage. If you have setup different download path for your apps then you have option to add them and content should be available under download menu of those download folders too.

Once you enter any of six above menu’s, you should see those contents displayed in normal file manager fashion. Nothing new in there and that actually is good thought. Here you will have option to refresh the content or hide the content if you wish to secure your personal content from others.

There are two more menu’s available at the bottom. One of them is Directory and other is Toolbox.

Directory View showing online storage

Now, this developer have provided users with the normal file manager layout too if don`t like new layout. It’s called as Directory and is placed at bottom left. All the inbuilt device, sdcard and other system level directories can be accessed from here. But the list doesn’t end there, the developer even added option to login online storage at Dropbox. Samba or FTP service connections are also allowed. This file manager is neatly designed with create folder, sorting content, display and search option also provided on every page.

If you are a Pro user or Geek then you must be very well aware of requirement to access the system or OS level directories. That normally will require users to have Root access on their Android smartphone. So kudos to the developer, he has added Remount file system and Host editor option which is used to change read write access to system level directories and to access host file respectively.

As usual, all apps have Settings option and this has too. Here you will find the options to allow this file manager to display your system hidden files which is disabled by default. Keeping it disable is good option if you are new to android system. You have Languages option where you can select the one that suites your region and devs are constantly updating the language support to different countries. Last one is the Root Explorer,  again if you new to Android and don’t have much knowledge then let it be disabled. As it opens doors to OS level files to users.

Settings Menu

So guys what i shared today is a beautiful and well organized file manager with simple looks but useful in every aspects. 
Thanks for reading this review. If you have queries regarding this app,  do leave a comment in section below. I will try to help.

[androidpot]Tomi File Manager for Android Upgrades to v2.0

Tomi File Manager, a full featured file manager, smartly classifies your own files into Music, Pictures, Videos, Documents, makes you the best file explorer and downloads manager, and closely works as primary root explorer for advanced users in different using scenes, has moved to its first major update for 2.0 version, after its initial release in May, 2014.

Working with Light Theme and Dark Theme, Tomi File Manager 2.0 improved its GUI to highlight its core feature – Smartly classify and manage users’ own files. “We believe that the majority of files which need to be managed are users’ own ones, not system files of Android OS.” stated by Tomitools, the development team of Tomi File Manager, “In the new 2.0 version, we make icons to each file category, like Music, Pictures, Videos, Documents, Applications and Downloads, bigger and much clearer, than our previous version. So users can easily find out what they need with simple tap.“

While dealing with selected file, Copy, Move, Delete, and check file Details are the majority of behaviors with high frequency, so Tomi File Manager changed listed options in action menu, and bring the highly used options to front of users. As well, options to Rename, Share, and Compress will be popup by simply tap the “More” option.

When users want to do some operations to selected files, they can easily find out right option in the action menu, and do not need to spend even minute time to search in a long long option list. “Using scenes, means what kind of option that users will want to selected files, are much important than a simple function.” Tomi File Manager builds every function based on closely simulations to users’ daily usages. And this is why Tomi File Manager is different from other file manager apps.

Besides file management, Tomi File Manager updated its Apps Manager in 2.0 version, to classify Pre-Installed applications and Downloaded Applications. Downloaded application means the apps which are installed by phone users, and Pre-installed application means the apps which are installed by system and phone vendors. Users can easily find out apps they installed on the mobile phone, and uninstall the one do not want, to save free space. Otherwise, as to rooted devices, users who have root privilege can uninstall the pre-installed apps, and do not need to manually identify if selected app were pre-installed or not.

Meanwhile, a separated tab for managing stored APK files is also part of the new Apps Manager. Some friends have suggested us to support management to APK files, and now we have this feature. When people download or transfer APK files to phone device, it is really not convenient to find such file among folders or files. But please do not worry, here we support this feature, to enable you this easy and convenient option to manage your APK files. If an APK has been executed and installed, we mark it “Installed”, so you can delete it or not; if not installed, we also tell you “Not Installed”, then you can install it. This is also one way that Tomi File Manager serves users in different needs and different using scenes.
