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.
- 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)
