Total Commander 2.0 beta 1 for Android is available now!

WARNING: This is a beta version! Please make a backup of your data/SD-Card before using it!

What's new?
- Audio/Video-Player, can stream from Internet and from (updated) plugins
- Drag&Drop in file lists (by holding down finger on file icon)
- Scroll thumb also in the editor
- Write to restricted external SD cards
- Set owner and group for a file or multiple files
- Root mode: Ask for permissions when copying, deleting, and saving file in the editor
- Custom date/time format
- Improved stability of background operations (file functions)
- Prevent operations from pausing when screen is turned off

The history of changes can now be found here:

The plugins LAN and WebDAV will be updated soon too, to support the music streaming.

Here is all the information you need to install:

The beta is not available in the play store because it's not possible to host a final version and beta version at the same time.

You can download TC from us directly and install it on your device. If this is your first installation of TC for Android, please open the "Settings" app of your Android device and go to the "Applications" page. Here you need to allow apps from "Unknown Sources".

Now there are three ways to install Total Commander:

1. If you read this page on your Android device, just click on this link:
http://ghisler.com/tcandroid2.apk

2. If you read this page on your PC, and have a barcode scanner app installed on your Android device, double click on the following QR code, then scan it with your phone to start the download. You can get a barcode App by searching for barcode in the market. Personally I'm using the app "Barcode Scanner" by ZXing Team, it's a very simple one, which is open source, so it should be safe.

3. Finally you can of course type in the above link by hand in the web browser of your device.

On some devices, you need to go to apps - downloads to install, clicking on the .apk in the notification area may fail.

Please post your bug reports and suggestions here in the forum!

Thanks for your help!

Best regards
