Ha. It probably does feel faster. Jokes aside, this update will be welcomed by the community. Most crashes that users have been reporting seem to be fixed. Let us know if you experienced crashes with Pocket Explorer and whether or not this update fixed them.
You’ll also notice the new ability to move and copy multiple folders at once. In addition, you can now cancel file operations using the app.

Edit: Damn!! This thing is blazingly fast!! It feels more like it's part of the OS instead of an app. Remember when our music and games lists scrolled this fast? Very impressive.
