First I would like to state, “I Love My Blackberry”…
Many of you may not know that I put together an article “How to use a Blackberry Smartphone with a cheap “Pay As You Go” mobile phone plan… back in March of this year. The article continues to gain in popularity AND, yes, I am still using my Blackberry 8320 with the T-Mobile “pay-as-you-go” plan with continued success.
If you are a heavy duty Blackberry user then you need this software on your Blackberry. FileScout is an awesome utility that gives you control over the management of your file system on your Blackberry. FileScout is pay-what-you-want (Donationware): and currently runs on RIM OS 4.3 or higher (sorry no support for 4.2.1 devices) AND with Blackberry models 8110, 8130, 8220, 8310, 8330, 8700, 8800, 8820, 8830, 8900, 9000, 9500, 9530 & 9630.
FileScout – The “all in one” file, zip, text and image manager for your BlackBerry®
FileScout Core Features:
FileScout is a file system browser for your BlackBerry® (including hidden files)
Create directories, copy, move, rename, or delete files
Zip and Unzip files or complete directory structures with your BlackBerry® (no support for password protected zips)
Copy and delete complete directory structures
Open all media files (supported by your BlackBerry®)
Register additional file types with other (3rd party) applications (if supported)
Open files (like ini, xml, etc.) as plain text so you can edit, mark, copy, and paste text fragments of files that normally can’t be opened with your BlackBerry®. This can become very valuable when you receive email attachments that are not normally supported by your BlackBerry®
Delete pre-installed wallpapers, videos, and ringtones in order to free memory on your device***
Please note: once these features are deleted, the only way to get them back is to hard reset your device!
Display thumbnails for supported image files (if enabled in the options)
Search for files and directories on your BlackBerry® device
Send any file as an email attachment to your BlackBerry® contacts
Send any file via Bluetooth to another device that support OBEX
Define a favorite directory list (as shortcuts)
Show details for files & directories [modification date, is hidden, etc...]
Resize (& rotate) images in order to save time and money when sending photos to your friends via your BlackBerry®
Create playlists (across multiple folders)
More to come? – is there really something you miss for a file manager application? If so, let the software developer know!
