    "*enters password* - WRONG. *resets password* NEW PASSWORD CAN'T BE YOUR OLD PASSWORD... AAARRGGGHHH I've lived through this enough times to want to die, so I finally got tired and tried different password managers. I ended up staying with 1password. It's really easy to use, and has a very reasonable price. I'll never have to remember a bazillion passwords again!!!! FREEDOOOOM!!!!"

      "This app is very user friendly and reminds me of using windows 7. If it is an image or video it has a thumbnail, all other files have icons. Storage Analysis is a good feature as it lets you know which directories are taking the most storage. Storage Analysis also displays the total amount and available amount of storage on the device as well as the SD card"

      "This is a good file explorer, but it isn't specific to managing documents. Sure, it can help me with that, but i need something specifically designed for that purpose. This will probably lack some features as its primary purpose is something else. I'll keep looking."
