What is Ghost Commander?
Ghost Commander is a file manager with two panels for the Android™ platform. Its development was inspired by the famous (Norton|Midnight|Total) Commander desktop applications, so if you are familiar with those great programs, you will find Ghost Commander a familiar and very convenient environment.
As was said above, it has two separate panels, both of them able to show files from different locations. What does that give you? For example, when you need to copy files from one folder to another, you just select the files in one panel and the target in the other, then hit the '5' key (either on the physical keyboard or on the toolbar). That's it. No need to do such boring steps as copying the files to the clipboard, navigating to the place you want them to be copied to, pasting and then going back.
List of features
Browse the local file system. Navigate easily through the folders tree. Save short cuts to the frequently visited folders to the favorites list (and also as icons on the system desktop). Copy/move/delete/rename files and folders, create new folders. Launch a file with an appropriate application (for example launch an .apk file to install an application). Open a text file for editing, create new text files. Open a zip archive as a folder - copy (extract) files from it. Create a new zip archive, add new files to an existing one, delete files in an archive. Search files by a name mask on the local file system. Calculate the occupied size of files and folders, have the folders sorted by size. Connect to an FTP site, download/upload files and folders. (Active and passive modes supported.) Open a Windows network shared folder (Samba protocol). Copy files/folders to and from. (With a plugin.) Customize looks and feels - turn on/off the file icons, manage row size, background and foreground colors, tool buttons. Work in the root: mode to the file system on a "rooted" device.

I love that app. Highly recommend for power users.
Reliable, lots of options (sftp etc). Cumbersome at first, efficient and safe then. Great.
Copying or moving files between the two panels are awesome. Lots of plugins, SMB, SFTP, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, WebDav.
If you know what a dual-panal file manager is, you probably will too.
Lets you specify and external editor for the 'edit' command, but the internal one is good enough for basic text manipulation or viewing.
As of this posting, it doesn't support FTPS, unfortunately, but it's still being actively developed, so hopefully...
It supports sftp via a free plugin

That's correct!.. It's got plugins and for Google Drive, too; with which it's possible to upload folders, btw. :)
