Filza File Manager iOS App Review

Author: KvX  //  Category: Apps, News, iPhone

One of the greatest benefits of jailbreaking is gaining root access to your iPhone or iPad. Most people are pretty familiar with iFile when it comes to gaining access to your root directory, however for those not familiar Filza is the best File Manager available in cydia today. Filza is clean, well presented and a powerful file manager that is sure to leave you impressed as I know it did me.

Getting to Know Filza
I spent the last 3 weeks getting to know Filza on my iPhone 5, 5s, 6 and 6 plus. The first thing I noticed was how well it functioned on the listed devices. One of my major concerns was how it would look on the 6 plus as many apps and tweaks seem to not fair so well with such a large screen due to stretching and quality issues. However with Filza File manager it was clean and very well laid out for multiple iPhones. With this said the best selling point of Filza is just its ease of use and wide array of features for managing and using root access to the ultimate level.

Primary Features of Filza:

  • File viewers/editors for Media Player, HEX Editor, Text Editor, SQL Editor, IPA Installer, DEB Installer, Web Viewer, and Terminal to name a few
  • SQL Editor Allows for over 100k plus queries to be run
  • Execute Shell Scripts and applications
  • Cloud services for Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, WebDAV, FTP, and SFTP
  • Supports SMB (Windows File Sharing)
  • Easily search files and folders
  • Copy and move files easily with just a few taps
  • Download html files with ease: Allows you to copy html file to Pasteboard, and then paste it to destination folder
  • Manage Music by import, export, deleting or renaming easily
  • Easily navigate files in list view or grid view mode with thumbnail
  • Compress/Decompress zip/7z/rar/tar/tar.gz/gz
  • Install and extract DEB/IPA files
  • View DEB/IPA file information
  • Custom Black or white theme, custom folder icon and file extension icon
  • Many more features…

  • Summary
    Overall Filza is a very powerful and in depth tool for your iOS file manager needs. Just using it for a few weeks I can tell you it is something that will stay in my iOS toolbox for a long time. It is exactly what you would want and expect when it comes to having a simple yet powerful way to manage and edit your iOS files and folders. Just the functionality for cutting down on steps through copying, and pasting or simply searching make this a worthwhile App to add. Filza costs $5.99 but comes with a free trail and I am betting like me you will happily make the switch and pay the $5.99 as it is worth every penny and will pay for itself just in time saved.
