Ghost Commander

Ghost Commander

Ghost Commander is a file manager for the Android platform with two panels. If you like using Midnight Commander or GNOME Commander in Linux, Ghost Commander may be a suitable alternative in the Android world.

Ghost Commander copies and moves files between its two panels. This file manager can also upload or download files from FTP servers and Windows network shares (Samba plug-in required), create or extract ZIP archives.

The operations are bound to number keys, with same numbers as in the prototype applications for easy recollection.
