Features Of Portfolio File Manager
Since Portfolio was introduced in December last year, its latest version 0.9.9 currently supports the most common features such as creating a new folder, browsing, copying, deleting, and renaming files.
You can tap on the folder to open and long press to edit or delete the directory.
It also supports a filter for showing hidden files and sorting files in alphabetical or last modified order.
Though Portfolio still has a long way to go, it has a perfect start and aims to fill the gap of Linux mobile-focussed file manager that can provide a good user experience.
