  1. Add a "token" option to the sftp plugin.

    right now the sftp plugin uses a userid and password, however many systems use a one-time-token (like Google Authenticatior).

    After the password prompt there is another prompt for the token, however GC doesn't currently have a away to handle this.

    • Share file(s) with GC -> GC compresses and encrypt the file with 7z with a predefined password and sends it to cloud/SD/WhatsApp..

      Purpose: Easy compression and encryption from every app for sharing files with friends or storing securely in the cloud. Full compatibility with all systems due to standard 7zip format. 

      Situation: I viewing e.g. a PDF in Adobe Reader or another app  

      1. Click "Share". 
      2. click "Secure with GC" -> in the next step, the shared file is compressed directly in a 7zip file with a user pre-defined password (normally you could use the same password for your cloud)
      3. Next, another "Share" dialogue opens in which the encrypted 7zip file can be stored via GC in the cloud or…

      • Add support for Android TV

        There isn't very much choice with file explorers that support android TV (leanback launcher). Ghost commander would be a great choice!

        • Unpack to separate subfolder

          When unpacking an archive need an option to unpack it in subfolder. For example when I download new music album which compressed in zip I first need to create folder with desired name and then make extraction in this folder. Might be good idea to add folder detection to not create one manually.
          PS. This ability exists in Total Commander for android.

                • Enable viewing of pdf files

                  Click on the left side of a file in the GC list. This would open the file in an external viewer such as FB Reader. This could involve choosing the external viewer in a Setting, or using Android's program picker.

                  • Sliding menu: bottom menu line should be swiped by page. The best example for this is Apex Launcher, which has a - sliding "Dock" feature.

                    Problem: bottom menu line currently is swiped without page flip, just dragged.

                    Suggestion: Page based sliding menu:
                    The bottom menu line should be swiped by page.
                    The best example for this is "Apex Launcher", which has a
                    - sliding "Dock" feature.
                    Also might be useful to check "Apex settings/Dock settings". Note the
                    - "Infinite scrolling"
                    and
                    - "Show indicator"
                    options, which are also useful features.

                    • Tree Command

                      I've been hacked, and rooted, overlay installed, and being monitored. Everyone thinks I'm crazy, even you the reader.
                      - My wonderful hacker left me a gift. They installed Goast Commander on my phone. It doesn't have SU and they've implemented Administrative privileges to limit my attempts to get them out of my phone.
                      - GC having it's own set of privileges allows me to get to root / it would be extremely convenient to execute a command that list everything to a text file.

                          When DropBox killed v1 of their API, the integration with BB10 died with it. Please update the BB10 version of Ghost Commander to use the v2 API.

                                • Check if file exists before copying from CIFS to SD card

                                  When I copy a folder with lots of files from a network share to an SD card (through SAF) Ghost Commander currently copies the files to the local storage. Only then it tries to copy the files to the SD card (I supposes that's another stupid Android limitation for our "security" and you can't copy files directly to the SD card) and complains that some of the files already exist.
                                  That would save lots of time if the check would be performed for each file before it is actually copied.
                                  This would greatly help in quickly synchronising folders which do…

                                      • Add an Menuentry for opening the progress windows (after the progress windows was closed)

                                        After you click on close in the progress window, there is no action to open it again.

                                        it would be nice, to get the progress window back again.

                                          The scrolling position isn't stored when GC is being minimized or when switching to a different app. Therefore you're always back at the top of the file list when you return to GC and not where you actually scrolled to.
