BlackBerry file sharing solutions from Enterprise File System Inc

Comments

There are several file sharing systems available to corporate users such as Cortado, and each will provide a competitive advantage over the others. Depending on your organization’s needs, it’s important to evaluate each for its strengths and weaknesses.

One of these systems is Enterprise File System (EFS). EFS lets you create folders, copy and paste documents between remote systems, delete documents and folders and email remote or local documents.

Free BlackBerry file explorer BBFileScout updated

Comments

BBFileScout is a file explorer and zipping application that is really impressive, especially being free. With BBFileScout, you can view files, rename files, move files, hide files, zip filles and heck, even associate files to a specific application ie: .doc to Documents To Go. It also includes an integrated text viewer.

A BBFileScout v0.6.9 is released and you can download it OTA.

Updates:

  • Hide and unhide files and directories via the File/Directory information popup
  • Option ‘Show filenames in Menus’ - enables/disables the display of current selected file in the #Menu (default on)

Fixes:

  • Fixed internal NullPointerException [when updating root]
  • Options: it’s now possible the remove a previously specified playlist directory (in order to disable the complete playlist functionality of BBFileScout)

Effectively manage your files on your BlackBerry

File Manager Pro

Before you say, “Hey, didn’t he already review a file manager?” I will correct you that this is the first time I am reviewing a GOOD file manager. While I might have been a little harsh in my review of Bilby File, it was because I knew there had to be something better… And I found that better something with File Manager Pro by Terra Mobility.

One of the first things I appreciated was the quick “tutorial” the application runs through the first time you open it. I really dislike opening a new application (especially one with as much depth as this one) and hitting every combination of keys trying to figure out the fastest way to complete a task, but this app has you covered from the beginning.

Now let’s hit the feature list and go over the high points:

• Support For The Storm — Provides double tap and multi-touch selections, and swiping for fast file list scrolling. No compatibility mode needed!
• All Standard File Operations — Copy, Move, Rename, Delete, New Folder and Send as Email. In addition, recursive Copy, Move and Delete operations are supported.
• Manage Your Zip Archives — Open and browse Zip archives the same as folders. Extract all of the contents or just a subset. Create new archives or add to existing ones.
• Select Multiple Files And Folders — Select a range of items, an arbitrary set, or any combination of both. Do any file operation on the selected items, including compressing them into a Zip archive.
• Search For Files And Folders — Search in a single folder or across multiple folders, even recursively. Specify whole words only or to use case sensitivity. Select search result items and perform any file operation.
• Fast Access With The Favorites List — Avoid tedious folder navigation and jump directly to frequently used files or deeply nested folders with a single click.
• Sort And View Files Your Way — Sort files by Name, Size, Type or Date, in Ascending or Descending order. Specify the display of file information, and control the viewing of hidden files.
• Launch Files In Documents to Go — Click on a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file and have it opened in Docs-to-Go. Click on media files — audio, video or image — and have it launched in your media application. (requires OS 4.5 or higher)
• Modify File Attributes — View properties on files and folders, and assign the Read-Only and Hidden attributes.
• Integrated Text Viewer — Built-in text file viewer that includes a Find feature for text searches.
• Unsurpassed Performance — Open and browse folders containing 1000’s of files with virtually no performance penalty.
The first thing we’ll take a look at is the options, most of which pretty much just cover how items are displayed. As you can see below, you can also choose your level of compression when creating zip files.

File management software for BlackBerry

Comment

When I first saw the screen-shots of BilbyFile I was very excited about writing the review for it. I saw this great looking file manager where I could tag multiple files and move them all at once. I admit that some of my excitement was based on a few assumptions… you know what they say about those.

Let me start by explaining the application and then I’ll give you my list of assumptions that caused this app to bum me out.

Features:
• View device memory/SDCard/folders/files
• File properties
• Folder properties
• File: copy/move/delete/rename
• Folder: create/copy/move/delete/rename
• Star files: copy/move/delete

BilbyFile is a file manager that allows you to “star” (select) multiple files and then copy/move/delete them all at once. This is useful if you know exactly what all the files are called… This brings me to my failed assumptions.
