What are the features that you would like to be covered? The obvious one's would be to  browse your SD card, create directories, rename, move, and delete files.

Thanks for the oppurtunity

Exactly those features you mentioned. Imagine maybe a scenario where someone wants to rename an image taken with the phone camera before sending it by email. It's up to you how you choose to make the video.

Please remember to discuss your idea on the OpenIntents email group with other contributors before starting to work on it.

Good luck!
