I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Extract a zip file command

    add to the context menu (tap and hold on a zip file) command "Extract" which being selected extracts all the content of the zip file to the current folder.

  3. can view (at least) or edit file in hexadecimal mode (like Midnight for example)

    In Midnight Commander, viewing a file, the F4 key toogles to display the data in normal mode (text) or hexadecimal mode. Do the same in Ghost Commander. Thanks in advance

  4. Remove "Go" button from the Favourite

    I suggest to remove "Go" button from the Favourite. Once a favourite link is selected, it goes straight to the destination without pressing "Go".

  8. Comparaison du contenu de deux dossiers.

    Il serait très intéressant de pouvoir comparer le contenu de deux
    dossiers, afin de copier les fichiers manquants de l'un dans l'autre.
    Si cela existe, je n'ai pas trouvé la commande.

    Félicitations pour cette application qui ressemble presque à Total
    Commander de Windows. J'utilise exclusivement cette dernière pour
    gérer mes fichiers Windows, et j'en suis très satisfait.
    Paradoxalement, leur application Androïd est moins bien que la votre.

    Merci de me tenir au courant.

    Salutations.

  9. 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.

  10. Hardlinks and symlinks.

    Support creation of symlinks and hardlinks in filesystems that support them.

    Possible applications:
    - Hardlink installed APK files into /data/media to allow read access from unprivileged apps (e.g. for Bluetooth sharing)
    - Hardlink files between user directories within /data/media for multiuser systems
    - Symlink rarely used or big APK files into a different partition.
    - Every other kind of cool stuff one can do with hardlinks and symlinks.

  11. Show favorite item names (not locations) when long pressing on panle header

    When long pressing on the panel header, the list of favourites is
    shown. Could you add a setting to show the NAMES (if set on the favs:
    panel) of the items instead of the locations?

  12. Follow symlinks transparently in root mode.

    Optionally, make the behaviour user-configurable for those that want to see symlinks.

  13. Add exclusion (directories) to search function

    Would like to be able to exclude certain directories from search, either globally or individually for each search.

    Example: I have iBird Pro on my phone, which stores many hundreds of pictures of birds on my SD card. Because of this, if I am searching for a particular .jpg in Ghost Commander, I must wait for GC to chew through many large sub-directories filled with jpegs -- directories that I know will not contain the file I'm seeking.

    Being able to exclude a directory would make such a search orders of magnitude faster for my machine.

    Can I password protect a file on my nexus? For instance I would like to take a photo of a client with credit card photo or ID on file, but password encrypt this files. All while unlocked and unrooted. I'm sure I can make a document on my PC and password protect it to open said file, but it would be tits if I could do it from Ghost.  Thanks! As always 5 stars. :)

  18. mark files by date

    please allow marking files by date. Date range, to be specific. For example from 2013-07-01 to today. Or 2013-07-01 to 2013-07-05. Now it's possible only to mark by filename

  19. Quick scroll handle

    Scrolling throug long file lists (in directory panels) or text files (in the editor) by swipes alone can be very tedious. Please add a scroll bar handle where applicable.

  20. without a device with physical keyboard is there a way to do a search by name / file type ?

    like windows file search where you can look for xyz.apk inside the device, or specific .apk files as example.
