Fist of all I'd like to say "thank you" one hundred times. The great app. Just a great. You are one of a few persons which knows how to write intuitive, convenient and effective UI. In our days, when developers prefers bells and whistles more then real functionality and convenience it is very important. I just unistalled a lot of file managers and related tools from my phone, like astro filemanager, oi filemanager, root exlorer and more.

Second I didn't find android plugin development guide. On the plugin page the manual is for windows only. Where can I download such howto?

And third, you mentioned that android version of TC is a hobby project and will remain free and ads free. If it remains closed-source?

Unfortunately I haven't had the time yet to write a plugin development guide. However, I plan to release the source of at least one of the plugins as a starting point.

Yes, it's copyrighted freeware, and I will not release the source. However, you can peek into the source of any .apk by using APKTool, e.g. if you want to know what functions are used by a specific app:

I just LOVE tc4android and I would like to write plugins for it.

Is there any news about a plugin documentation or sample code?

Are the plugins written in C/C++ and loaded via JNI ?
Or, is it possible to write plugins in Java?

No news yet, sorry. But you can contact me by e-mail to get instructions and a sample plugin source code.

TC plugins are just normal Android apps, but use a Service instead of an Activity as the main object. They are written in Java, but can call C/C++ via JNI as well. In fact, both my FTP and my WebDAV plugin use JNI for CPU-heavy things.
