BBFileScout v0.5.1 Released – Free File Manager

We mentioned BBFileScout last week as a free/donationware file manager. Since then the developer has released quite a few updates that seriously enhanced the functionality. The latest release as of this article is v0.5.1 which brings a few nice features that I thought were worth a mention. I am really loving BBFileScout and really think it is becoming one of my BlackBerry must have applications.

What’s new?

  • Complete new implementation of content handlers – BBFileScout now makes use of the (pre-)registered document handlers – when a app register itself for a specify file extension BBFileScout now can read this association and launch the registered app [this implies, that installed PDF readers will now instantly work with BBFileScout]
  • Default BB-eMail Composer is used to send any FileAttachments from BBFileScout (previously there was a own implemented eMail composer)
  • If the default BB-eMail Composer is causing problems with sending attachments, then you can turn on the BBFileScout-“buildIn” eMail Composer via the Options.
  • additional options:
    • Use the BBFileScout build-in text viewer/editor (default ON)
    • Use the BBFileScout build-in ZIP handler (default ON)
    • Force BB media content handler for images, audio & video files (default OFF)

  1. Looks like OTA link isn’t working

  2. While this hasn’t allowed me to delete unwanted system files (My Fav’s icons) it is still a very handy tool to have. I totally feel RIM should have included this in the OS from the get-go.

  3. OTA doesn’t seem to be working. I seem to get the source of the jad file displayed instead.

  4. All links above this post still not working.

  5. All OTA links not working

  6. Used link in #2 and it worked just fine.

    I love BBFileScout.

  7. Anyone still having problems with the OTA links might want to try either a Refresh from the Browser menu or clearing the Browser cache. It might be a caching issue. 😉
