BBFileScout v0.5.5 Released: Create & Modify Playlists

We just mentioned BBFileScout last week but Tom let me know about a new feature that I didn’t even think of before. Currently it is quite annoying to setup a playlist on your BlackBerry and creating one on your computer is not always an option or an easy task. Now you can create a playlist using BBFileScout from files across multiple folders by selecting them with the space key and choosing menu>”Create playlist from selected items.”

You can now also open M3U playlist files which are the format that the BlackBerry uses for playlists. The other new feature I like is the ability to set a startup directory that the application will always open to.

As a reminder BBFileScout is a Donation-ware/free application where the developer asks that you donate as much as you feel the application is worth at this link. You can read more about BBFileScout at this link or you can download it OTA at this link.

  1. Quick clarification… The new Playlist Directory option specifies where playlists will be stored, not “a startup directory that the application will always open to”.

  2. Not sure about the new playlist feature.

    I like this file manager, but have found a couple file association issues. This new version still can not open *.pdf files when “double clicked”. I’ve set the association of pdfs to BeamReader to no avail. Also though I set *.mp3 associations to Mobiola xPlayer, they still open in the BB Player.

    • If BeamReader is properly registered as the default app to open PDF files (OS v4.5 or later), there should be no reason to add a file association — I use RepliGo Reader, and it works just fine! 😉 Does opening a PDF file E-mail attachment automatically launch BeamReader? Try deleting the association, saving, exiting, (and possibly rebooting) to see if it resolves the issue.

  3. I just went to download BBFileScout 0.5.5 for my 9503 Storm and was pleasantly surprised to find out that they have released 0.5.6. I don’t know what the difference is yet or if this is just the Storm version. GK
