Immediately after the release of BEIKS’ free FTP app, BlackBerry users are getting another, and more besides: Mobile File Manager and Mobile Viewer are now available from Rove Mobile free of charge. Mobile File Manager offers a great deal more than just FTP support, allowing users to connect to SFTP, WebDAV, and Windows file shares as well. Mobile Viewer, formerly known as BlackBerry Viewer, displays a BlackBerry’s screen on a computer monitor, making presentations of any BlackBerry app a simple process and allowing for easy screen captures. Both are available free from Rove, so have at it!
A great find from BlackBerry Sync: BEIKS is now offering a completely free FTP client for BlackBerry. The software, called BeFTP, was designed to connect to the BEIKS FTP server to download content for other BEIKS apps, because the BlackBerry browser doesn’t allowing downloading of all kinds of files. It’s fairly limited, because it connects to the BEIKS server automatically and doesn’t allow you to save new connections, but you can’t beat free. Their pro version is a bit more full-featured and costs $10, and of course there’s always Mobile File Manager from Rove if you need even more.
