ES File Explorer has introduced a “Premium” version of their popular application that will cost users $9.99/month. This new version will require payment to use any of the following features:
- Side-loading applications
- Use of Video Player
- Unlimited File Downloads
- Professional File Analysis
- File Cleaning
- Zip File Extraction
ES File Explorer has been used by tech-junkies and cord-cutters for years without payment. However, this new update will require a $9.99/month fee to access these “premium” features.
This application is available for installation on tons of devices including the Amazon Firestick which is the most popular streaming device available today. Many used the app for cleaning and managing files within their device.
If you install ES File Explorer through the Amazon App Store, you will be greeted by the following screen:
Users will have the ability to test a 7-day Free Trial prior to purchasing the app for $9.99/month. Once your free trial is up, you will be automatically charged for the first month.
While this app is a great tool for managing files and content within your device, it’s most popular feature was the ability to side-load 3rd party applications that are not available in the Amazon App Store.
With this now being a premium feature that requires payment, many are left without a way to download these apps to their favorite device.
Luckily, there are a few things we can do to use ES File Explorer and side-load applications!
