    Overview
    Apollo's current features are:

    - Graphical User Interface: Minimalist design which is based on default hbmenu and official home menu esthetic.
    - Selecting items: A simple but mandatory feature.
    - Copying files and directories: Before doing so, application checks whether user is trying to overwrite currently existing files or directories and then asks about overwriting them.
    - Recursive directory deletion: It allows for complete deletion of directories' content and obviously for file deletion.
    - Renaming files and directories: Speaks for itself.
    - Sorting items: Alphabetically or reversed.

    More options are always good, nice work. I'll check it out. I see viewing text files is planned, if you can integrate text editing you'll be onto a winner.

    I will definitely look into this. My goal is to implement features that are most requested by the community, so any suggestions are welcomed.
    I thought about ftp, but I don't know whether should I implement someone's code or code it myself. I'm also interested in the way that current ftp (for example ftpd) works 'cause it doesn't show japanese/chinese/korean signs and I'm curious if it is possible to support these languages.
    Thank you, half of the time which I spent on Apollo, I spent on the design.

    Could you add a thumbnail view type? Selecting items in list view is a bit of a hassle for me.

    I planned to implement other view types (detailed list, bigger list and thumbnails) after accomplishing my current 'planned feature list', so yeah it should be done in 0.3 version

    Thank you. Simple thumbnail list should suffice.

    I second the USB storage access. I want to move files from a USB drive to my SD card.

    Awesome job, this is one of those must have kind of apps.

    And it shows. Looks very nice, sleek and very Switch-like.

    I'd agree, a text editor would be amazing. USB storage access would be nice as well. Keep a thumb drive of a bunch of roms/nsp's to load on the go would be a cheap alternative to SD cards.
    Regardless, I'm keeping my eye on this one.

    Poked around a bit, definitely looks really sleek.

    Text editing will be big, I'll wait on that. So far so good.

    This is going to actually replace NXShell for me and probably many others. No offence to the creator of NXShell, it's great, but I'm kinda getting sick and tired of it's clunky UI so this looks very promising! Keep it coming!!!

    I would love to access the sd card via usb connection, similar to gold tree usb install, but also to copy/move other files than nsp

    E-Reader functionality would be fantastic. There really isn’t a good E-Reader for switch at the minute.
