Solid Explorer Coming to Android TV In The Coming Months


Your average user isn’t going to use a file browser to side load the latest update to their apps, they’d rather have it pushed out and update in the background silently. Fortunately for power users we have such great tools such as Solid Explorer. Till now it’s been seen as just a phone and tablet app. Then the developer of the app shared thoughts on an Android TV Version.

The following is a direct quote from a recent post:

As you already know I’m working on Android TV support. I’ve managed to adjust major remote control navigation issues, but I have to tell you that it’s still terrible.

Perhaps I should totally change the UI to match Android TV ecosystem? This will probably take months to complete, but when done you could enjoy all SE features packed into convenient and intuitive leanback interface. This approach, however, would make SE for Android TV paid separately.

Let me know what do you think.

Would you like to see Native Android TV support come to this App?

    Hope it’ll be better than ES File Explorer, which is a UX nightmare on ATV.

    Not as a paid app, no thanks. I already paid for the original app when ES file explorer was miles ahead and now he’s testing the water for another purchase. Even with apple you don’t charge separately for an iPad, iPhone and apple tv for that matter.

    • don’t be cheap, if it requires a completely new UI, damn straight he deserves to charge for it. And if it’s quality, I’ll buy it. If you don’t want to pay, don’t complain when developers ignore Android TV.

        My ass he needs another pay. If you’ll go splurging money, than that’s your problem. I ain’t spending another penny on the same sh*t once again. I remember the days this guy made his app paid ignoring all the beta testers who helped the app become what it is today.
