Paragon NTFS and HFS+ for Android Makes Using External Hard Drives Easy

Sep 7, 2012

Paragon NTFS and HFS+ for Android is a free utility that is designed to make it easy for Android users to access external hard drives that are formatted with NTFS and HFS+ file systems. While it's possible for some rooted Android devices to access FAT drives easily, there are limitations to this file system, particularly with file sizes, that do not exist in those. So, what Paragon's app does is to make it easy to mount and unmount drives that are formatted in NTFS and HFS+, allowing Android devices to access the files on them. Have a video collection to access on a tablet while on the go? This free-as-beer app will do the job. This is perfect for Android-powered HTPCs/media boxes, and could even be used on something like the APC.

Paragon NTFS and HFS+ for Android cannot be used by every device. It requires a rooted device with a kernel that has the FUSE kernel module – CyanogenMod roms should include this module, however. The app is available for free from Google Play.
