This file manager app is great because it lets you backup all of your Android apps onto your SD card.  This is a great thing for most Android users because the actual internal memory on the phone is pretty small so this is a way that you can preserve that space and put most of it on your SD card.  You can backup the installer files which are APK files onto your SD card and then you can go onto your phone and just uninstall the app and free up more space.  In order to use the app again all you have to do is just go into the backup and reinstall it onto your phone.  The other nice thing about this app is that you will not have to use a computer in order to manage the files that are currently on your phone.  You can actually copy files, paste files, or just move them around on your phone to different locations.  You can also delete files, open them with other apps, and also create folders and stuff to keep it all organized.  You can also select a variety of different files in order to perform actions.

This app has been given a rating of 4.3 stars out of a 5 star rating scale.  This app can really help with organization of the files and apps on your SD Card.  The other bonus to this app is that it is free for you to be able to download off of the Android app marketplace.
