After a long break... here is an major update

BBFileScout update to 0.3.6

What's new?
  • faster reading of directories with large number of files (incl. Warning screen)
  • Opening custom registered files:
    • BBFileScout allows you to associate own file extensions with custom applications (like you might know it from other OS)
    • Simply enter the extension [without '.' (dot)] in the BBFileScout-Options
    • Once such an associations is configured (via BBFileScout options) you could open any file type with any application that you have registered*
  • Options:
    • Confirm Exit of BBFileScout
    • Confirm Delete of files & directories
    • Show hidden files & directories
    • Custom file associations

* The 3'rd party application itself have to support to be started with an file as additional command line parameter (this is quite usual in other OS's but I do not know much about 3'rd party Blackberry applications right now) - I have personally tested this with GPSLogger (and 'gpl' as custom file associations)

Installation & Update
You will find the download link (incl. OTA) at the BBFileScout Homepage

Once again: Deleting or renaming files from your Blackberry can harm the core functionality of the device - use this function at your own risk! - Don't blame me, if you have bricked your BB.

Looking forward for your comments
