FileScout 2.0 - Updated to support BlackBerry 6 and new features. Win 1 of 35 free copies!

With BlackBerry 6 well on it's way now, we'll be seeing a lot of applications get updated with some new features and new support. One such application that I'm rather happy to see get updated so quickly is FileScout. Matthias, has released v2.0 of FileScout which adds some new features to the app and ensure BlackBerry 6 support.

New features include:

  • RibbonBar for TouchScreen Devices (incl. the new 9800 Torch!)
  • ZIP Browsing: When you have marked a ZIP you can select, if you would like to extract the complete archive or if you would like browse the content of the ZIP.
  • New ZIP-Browsing Key ShortCuts (TouchScreen Devices will show a own ZIP-Browsing RibbonBar to offer identical functionality)
  • Small Menu tweak for OS6 (to keep the OS and FileSout MenuItems separated from each other)
  • When the ‘File Rename Dialog’ will be opened the filename is already selected

What’s Fixed?

  • Opening directories containing a lot of files should be way faster then before
  • Possible dead lock while browsing images fixed
  • A lot of small tweaks and some small menu name adjustments
If you don't already have FileScout you can pick up the premium version for $6.99 which, comes with a free trial. Plus, Matthias has given us 35 free copies to give away to you all so, if ya want a copy drop a comment on this post. Good luck folks!

FileScout 2.0 - Updated to support BlackBerry 6 and new features. Win 1 of 35 free copies!



Have been using the free version of this app for a while.
Very intuitive app!
I would like to have my own premium version!

The free version works well enough that I wouldn't pay for the premium version just yet but I would probably use some of the increased functionality of the pro version.

I used an older version a while ago and it was really good then. I'm sure it has only gotten better so of course I'd love to snag a copy :)

It sounds wonderful! I already use my bb bold for Everything, especially work related files. This would help tremendously.

I use the free version, so I'm definitely interested in getting the premium version. Very useful app!

Been using the trial for a while now and defenetly an awesome app. Would love to win a copy of it if possible :D

Would love to win a copy of this! Maybe not as much as the 9800 :D but it would still be great. Thanks for another awesome contest CB!

I am planning on getting the new 9800 and this would go great with it, if i can win a copy

I'm a long time user of this app., And love it. Hope they have a way to delete the unwanted default pic, and ringtones.

I plan on getting (or winning) a torch by the 12th, would love to have this app. I was debating between this and another explorer tool. Hope I win this.

Even the lite version of Filescout is good product, so I'm wondering whether I can win the premium version to complete my 'BB' day....

I would love to win and use FileScout , I have seen it recently and found out to be amazing. It's got so many functions that are just too good to be ignored. I am looking forward for this.

Really nice stuff, most of my email attachments were zipped/rared. I'd love to have one copy of this.
