Must-have Android apps, according to Donovan Colbert

ES File Explorer

"ES File Explorer is exactly what it sounds like - a File Explorer, which is something that's missing from the default Android platform. It will allow you to cruise around the file structure of your Droid and the SD card just like a Windows CE device, copy, rename, delete files, and otherwise potentially brick your phone. You know, use it like the *real* PC it actually is.

"The image shows me browsing my local / (root) directory. /etc, /sbin, Jack Wallen and Neon Samurai *want* this app."
