FileScout

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!
