    Filza and iFile both have the same features, true, but Filza has cloud access and a batter interface.

    Do you work for the developer or something? Never heard of it, never seen anyone recommend it, and can hardly find anything about it on the net.

    No. Filza File Manager is (for some reason) the second most preferred file manager app for iPhone file system. It does what iFile does, but better!

    I've used it for a while when I moved to IOS 8. iFile was not updated with the application names. Filza has a free trial. While I liked Filza and felt it was on par with iFile, I did not want or need to spend $6.00 fo buy it. Went back to iFile once the application names where updated. Now if I had not bought iFile a while back, I might have considered Filza as an alternative even though it's more expensive.

    A batter interface sounds like it could lead to sticky situations :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately application names still don't work for the data folder, which makes iFile pretty much useless if you want to access your stored files. It has been working in Filza for a while now.

    It works in the bundles folder which is enough for now. You can have access of your stored files using that folder. I have used it to update my favorite purchase theme from IOS 7 myself.

    Seems like this guy created user names on several sites to promote it for some reason. I will say with 100% certainty that it's NOT better than iFile.

    Mods should close this thread as solicitation.

    What would be really funny is if he cited his own post on other sites as evidence people are talking about it hehe.

    What? I just want to try and tell everyone Filza IS ACTULLY better. iFile is good and all...

    No! I just want to know what people think about this statement! I am not trying to advertise nor be annoying, I am truly a standard jailbreaker who is a member on Reddit and MacRumors.

    Could you explain how that would work?

    Also, Filza puts app names in the data side of application storage. So much more easier to get to stored documents that way, makes it easy to sync files from cloud to app, even when not in the app normally.

    I've seen posts by @coolstar on twitter that promotes this app over ifile as well (he's not the dev).

    Dropbox, Box and FTP servers aren't considered cloud access then I guess?

    Thank you!

    Yes, but Filza has Google Drive, Box, Dropbox and FTP.

    So, only one more cloud service than iFile has. OK.

    I have both, and find them both very useful, and not enough of a difference for me to choose one over the other. If you have purchased one, it seems to me that it is probably not worth it to purchase the other (I bought both as I purchase pretty much every new tweak/app that comes into cydia that even has a hint of usefulness to me, just for the fun in playing with it).

    I have GD because of the add ons in the web version. I can edit my website from anywhere, handy for school.

    File names are located in var/mobile/containers/Bundle/Application

    I used the info.plist file to get the Bundle Identifier for new apps but luckily while the icon names changed in most of the apps, the identifiers stayed the same. Also, I've discovered that most of the apps now have the same icon name. I FTP into my iPad using FileZilla to change the icon names of the icons that were not theme. This is the Original Theme for iPad and it has not been updated for IOS 8 but I was able to easily update with the latest Winterboard.

    Thanks! I love this theme. In IOS 6, I had 3 favorite themes that I used to change back in forth when I get tired of one but with IOS 7, when I discovered you have to create an icon for every app, I knew I had to find 1 theme that I really loved. Now I just change my wallpaper when I want my springboard to look different.
