  1. update ui to take full advantage of material design concepts

    now that we're well out of the gingerbread era, ghost commander deserves a ui refresh. it would be a good idea to maintain the gingerbread-compatible branch, but i think a new version that updates the ui to moderns standards would be a great improvement.

  2. Add Operations Menu

    Add a selection for the file operations menu when you press the menu button so you can copy, move, sendto, delete a file(s) without having to long press. You would have to highlight a file or files first.

  3. Create a 'directory' that lists recently saved or downloaded files.

    Similar to the 'Recent Items' menu in Windows. This way, if you cannot readily remember the save location for a specific app, you can go to this 'directory' and it will have a 'shortcut' to the recently saved/downloaded file and also list its true location. Big time saver and convenience. Thanks for the awesome app by the way!

  4. Add a separate font size setting option for the toolbar buttons

    So the toolbar button size can be adjusted without affecting panel font size.

  5. Make files shareable via Ghost Commander

    For example, when I'm browsing pictures in the camera gallery, I would like to click the share icon and then select Ghost Commander. Ideally, once GC opens up, you'd be prompted to select destination, which would be one of your favorites (including SFTP servers etc.).

    I found this, which might help out in developing the feature:

  6. 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.

  7. Let external text editor be used on not the native file system

    Use external text editor to edit files located not on native file system.
    (Copy the file to a temporary location, call the editor, then if the file was changed, copy it back)

  8. Could you add a drop down menu for the destination directorate

    Could you alter the destination menu with a drop down menu that would allow the user to select the sdcard.. It would make it easer to copy from home directory to the sdards directory.. Thanks.. (Still haven't figured out how to copy my home directory files to the sdcard directories).. You wouldn't have a 'how to' file and a web link to it would you.? ruhagomeh@gmail.com.com

  10. The cache folder size information

    I sometimes need to frequently check many folder size, by comparison, but the GC as long as change directory, the folder size preview is empty,
    Originally wanted to come up with a fast calculation according to the time of storage properties folder size algorithm, but found that seems to have the fast algorithm,
    In this case, hope for folders have "display size" option, the default does not display, only to have a need to display the size of a folder to use, can regularly or manually check size in order to reduce resource consumption

    Can consider the proposal:
    ★more panel …

    May want to think about the WiFi note that comes with some apps.. Many web users go to the (library) to use there WiFi.. And I have found that with my Smartfone.. The library's WiFi stopped working just after installing apps on google play.. (Some of the apps had a note about probing the WiFi connections..)

  13. Rename more then one file in the same time

    Using Total Comander in Windows, I find very useful the possibility to select multiple files and rename them all at once, adding a counting number or just adding some other text to the files.
    Renaming every single file at a time is pretty a waste of time (for me).

  14. Add an optional second toolbar

    I really like the Toolbar but find the scrolling to be a bit of a bother, especially on my phone -- not so much on my tablet. I'd like to see the OPTION of TWO toolbars. Under my scheme, the main toolbar would have the functions that I most use and need, including a link to swap in the second toolbar. Users could decide whether they wanted Toolbar 2 to contain (i) everything, (ii) everything except the Toolbar 1 functions, or (iii) some other subset of the available functions. The Settings function would include an additional column for Toolbar 2…

  15. Open with ...

    I'm reading ePubs with MoonReader.

    Usually I'm starting from GC and select the wanted book there.

    For whatever reason there is no option to always use MoonReader for ePubs. Thus when simply clicking the file it returns to the GC screen and nothing happens.

    Half a year ago or so the 'Open with ...' list available from the context menu showed 'MoonReader' and I was able to open the book this way.

    After some of the last updates the 'Open with ...' list shows only some google apps completely useless for ePubs, no more moonreader.

    Within the internal file manager…

  17. Windows share and Share via

    I'm using the "Windows share" functionality of Ghost Commander all the time, although I miss the option to (will describe a scenario):

    Watching pictures in the Gallery app of the phone, want to send one to my Windows share folder on my computer over wifi, I now have "minimize" the gallery app, open the ghost commander app select the source folder of the picture, find and select the picture, select the destination folder from favorites in this case the Windows share and copy the picture.

    It would be much easier it the destinations in favorites or custom ones or at…

  18. Specify some file extensions as generic extensions to open easily

  20. User Guide webpage have white background option. Wasting black ink stops me from printing info I need to operate app.

    The black background on the webpage for User Guide isn't practical because it waste ink printing the black background. You don't have to change the initial pages just make a link to webpages with white background Nd black lettering.

    Sorry ... if I posted this on the wrong board. I didn't know where else to post that would get the proper attention. Though my post does have to do with Ghost Commander user issues.

    Thanks for your time to read this post...
