    Apparently no support for network file shares w/o paid and proprietary (eg, non-transparent) plugins, plus since recent update can't even run properly and always crashes. As reported by about 90% of Google Play reviews in the past couple of months.

    Firstly, it's builtin network folder support appears to work. Next, this UI is quite pleasing. Some UI improvements are in order, like if you copy a file then the UI for that covers the "back" button that would normally bring up the drive listing.. but after some struggles I found out that you can swipe left to get that listing as well, thus I can copy items into a network folder.
