Free BlackBerry file manager BBFileScout goes version 1.0

The creators of BBFIleScout have had a ton of user feedback since the release of their free file manager for BlackBerry. They have now released version 1.0 of BBFileScout and there are quite a few major improvements.

Latest updates:

  • Options reorganized – on BlackBerry devices it’s quite common to separate the application options into various screens – this makes the options way more organized and easier to understand.
  • Path entry fields (Startup Path, Thumbnail Storage & Playlist Directory) show now an additional button that allows you to browse in the file system to make an appropriate selection (in the past this was only possible via the menu).

Some of the core features that have been maintained are:

  • BBFileScout is a file system browser for your BlackBerry (including hidden files)
  • Create directories, copy, move, rename, or delete files
  • Zip files or complete directory structures
  • Extract Zip archives (incl. structures)
  • 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)
