by Ian Black

Organize files on your Android tablet (File Manager HD) or shop for a stogie (Thompson Cigar) in today’s fresh apps.

File Manager HD (Free)

Need to move and organize files on your tablet? Check out File Manager HD.

Humbly described as the “first and best” file manager for Android Honeycomb tablets, iIt supports Hi-Def resolutions like 1280x800, features thumbnail viewers for multiple file types, and delivers cut, copy, and paste functionality. It also lets you search and share files, compress and decompress large files, and supports list or grid views of folders.

The creators say the app was fully tested on the Motorola Xoom but it’s free so there’s nothing lost in trying it on another make and model Android tablet.
