FX 5.1: USB OTG Support. UI Enhancements. Added range select in file/media listings. Added "Select All" option in media listings. Synthesized file listings (restores "System" catalog functionality in Android 7 / N). Optional support for in-app purchase of Plus License Key (APK license will remain available). Root add-on (free) may now also be enabled from within main app.
*** FX PLUS IS ON SALE FOR $1.99: A popular "free" competitor to FX just added lockscreen adware to their app. So enjoy a "buck off" the regular price of FX Plus to tell that competitor the same. FX--free or paid--has no ads/adware/bundled garbage. ***
