Best filemanager for jolla at the moment! Please add a function to edit textfiles and save.

Add the function "Create New" Textfiles and links....would be wonderful!!

Nice app, thanks!

hoodlum's picture

Hi. I would like to help translate the app into Russian. How can I do this?

breakdaufnk's picture

Hi, are you planning on removing the scrolling arrows as there is a native solution in place? Do you think it would be possible to add a root option to the application?

Anyways... great app. I hope that more updates are on their way to our phones ;)!

tvicol's picture

Could you please add option to create your own shortcut ?

Also please correct sdcard shorcut to /media/sdcard.


Thanks for this application !

Both of the changes have already been implemented and pushed to the source code repository here:


I'm still setting up my new computer, so it may take a while before I can release the new version, sorry. :(

Cut & Paste seems broken. Trying to cut some files and paste them a new location. App says the process is OK, but in reality the files are lost forever. Using the latest version.

Matoking's picture

I have been really busy with matriculation exams, so I haven't been able to work on Filetug at all. I'll try to get an update out that fixes this soon enough!

Thanks for informing about the bug!


Okay, the bug should be fixed in the latest version!

wickedsp1d3r's picture

All right! Kiitos.

Schturman's picture

Big thanks for option of editig text files ! Very useful, for me at least...

One little problem, if you have a long list of files and need copy one or two somewhere in the middle of the list, you need scroll up to get copy/paste/delete/rename buttons. And for example if you copy something from system to nemo, you also have 3 option to go to the right directory for pasting:

1. After copying, you should go back all the way manually (to target directory) because it near to the copy/paste/delete/rename buttons

2. If you pull down, you have only "scroll to bottom" - please add also "Shortcuts"

3. If you press "scroll to bottom", here you can pull up and you have "Shortcuts" button.. Only this one is a short way to get nemo directory now.

Please add also "Shortcuts" to the pull down menu. And maybe something like popup window for copy/paste/delete/rename buttons instead scolling all the way up. Hmmm... but in this way you still need scroll up or down to choose directory for pasting... Maybe you also can add home icon or arrrow icons (up/down) near the copy/paste/delete/rename buttons in the same popup window or something else to fast scrolling to up or down or directly to nemo.


Matoking's picture

There should already be support for fast scrolling; when flicking a directory view a button should appear that will take you to the top or the bottom of the directory list depending on which way you are flicking.

I haven't added a popup window for file operations because I think it would obstruct the view too much and because I haven't found a way to do it in a clean way; the attempts at this have either looked or functioned badly.
