  2. Remind vertical scrolling positions

    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.

    To the developer

    Greetings to you. Hope you are all well.

    I would like to request, when you have, if you could make a plugin for a cloud storage company called Mega which is situated in New Zealand.

    If you need more details I can send them to you in the next email.

    I ask this because like your other plugins for GDrive, Box, Dropbox and others, I use them with Ghost and would love to have Mega storage used in the same. I think you know what I mean.

    Thank you as always for a wonderful program. I use…

  6. Maintain a history of working directories

    Ghost commander should maintain a history of working directories so that users can easily return to a directory from earlier. An alternative approach would be to support a directory stack à la pushd/popd.

  7. Search filtering files support through files contained in the content

    This idea comes from MT manager.
    For example, I store a lot of articles.
    But the name of files, which provided information is insufficient.

    If the function achieve, I just need remember a little content of the article.
    I can get it easily, without rummaging around.

  8. Display Total Progress For Copy/Move

    Copy/Move operations currently display % progress for current file. It would be nice to show % progress for total copy/move request as well.

  9. Move remote files remotely

    If I connect to a remote target (my NAS) to move files from one directory to another they are first downloaded to my Android device and afterwards uploaded to the new directory. This should be done on the remote device directy which would much more faster and reliable.

  14. SFTP: proper ssh server authentication

    Implement proper authentication of the remote ssh server, to protect from rogue services and MitM.
    Consists of the following:

    - Prompt the user for confirmation when connecting to an unknow server by presenting the server's public key's fingerpring and asking if it's correct.
    - Store servers' public keys to avoid prompting the user on subsequent connections and for detecting unexpected public key changes.
    - Provide capability to edit the known hosts store, à la known_hosts file.

    To improve system security, avoid storing any information related to SFTP on user storage locations. Store everything in private app data. Limit sdcard usage…

  15. NFC/Android Beam and Wi-Fi Direct Support

    Great file manager, but what would make it even better is Android Beam and Wi-Fi Direct support. File transfers through Android Beam would be a lot easier. Also initiating a Wi-Fi Direct or Bluetooth connecting by NFC for large transfers, automatically configuring the connection. Maybe a QR code generator to support those non-NFC devices. I know it's a lot to ask: Android Beam, NFC, QR generator and Wi-Fi Direct support, but anything would be great. Thank you in advance.

  16. Show free space of current drive/folder

    Just show "xxxM free" in status bar for the mount point of the current folder. This especially is useful for /sdcard, /system and /data/data.

  18. Add a terminal!!

    Nothing fancy, maybe let us write our scripts with the text editor, ability to execute them, and move them to whatever file directrory we might want them. Would be nice to do it all from ghost. Would eliminate having to download another app.

  19. to add descending option to sort method

    I would like to suggest descending option in sort files. I believe people will like to see newer files first. Now we can do it by selecting twice the same sort method. It's a bit long way for touchable screens.
