File Manager is another piece of Xiaomi's broad collection of apps that are available on the Play Store for devices others than theirs. This one is pretty simple to use but still functional enough. It can read all kinds of documents, archives, images, videos and so on. Other than managing files, it also supports offline sharing in conjunction with their Mi Drop application and has a built-in junk cleaner, if you need it. Its most recent non-beta update arrived with a build number v1-181224 and is ready to download.
Thank you for using File Manager. We keep improving and optimizing our app to make it better and more convenient. Here's what we've done in the new version:
- You can rearrange frequently used items at the top of the start page now.
- Search results are categorized now.
- You can see app icons on some folders now.
- We adjusted the position of the shortcut that appears when a USB device is connected.
- It takes less time now to delete files.
- We also made some minor UI improvements.
To be honest, by looking at the first bullet point in the release notes, it references an option for manually rearranging frequently used files at the top portion of the start page, though, without a doubt, I could not find a single clue about how it works or what it does. But rest assured, the categorization for results in 'Global search' and the feature where it displays app icons for some folders are present and do function properly. Those are not very significant additions but on the other side, combined with the forementioned speed related enhancements, it is safe to say that this version is worth giving a shot at.
