import ru.bartwell.exfilepicker.ExFilePickerParcelObject;

// ...

    private static final int EX_FILE_PICKER_RESULT = 0;

    // ...

        Intent intent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(), ru.bartwell.exfilepicker.ExFilePickerActivity.class);
        startActivityForResult(intent, EX_FILE_PICKER_RESULT);

    // ...

    @Override
    public void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        if (requestCode == EX_FILE_PICKER_RESULT) {
            if (data != null) {
                ExFilePickerParcelObject object = (ExFilePickerParcelObject) data.getParcelableExtra(ExFilePickerParcelObject.class.getCanonicalName());
                if (object.count > 0) {
                    // Here is object contains selected files names and path
                }
            }
        }
    }

3. Add activity in your Manifest:

    <activity
        android:name="ru.bartwell.exfilepicker.ExFilePickerActivity"
        android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize"
        android:theme="@style/ExFilePickerThemeDark" />

4. If you need a "New folder" button, add permission in your Manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
