File Explorer

  • Playbook

File Explorer makes the task of managing the files and folders on your BlackBerry® PlayBook™ a breeze. This file manager presents an expandable Folder Tree, Breadcrumb style navigation bar and folder contents with three viewing styles – Thumbnail, List and Details views. It recognizes the common file types such as Images, Videos, Music, Documents, Spreadsheets, PDF files, etc and lists them using appropriate icons.

File Explorer allows you to explore your entire file system (not just the documents folder). The breadcrumb navigation bar clearly depicts the documents folder as safe and the system folders as unsafe using different colors for these regions of the application.

This file manager allows you to perform the key tasks such as copy, move, rename and delete files and folders with ease.

Reviews and Feedbacks

I have been using your file app for several weeks now and I really like it. It helps me to organize my files, helping me to see what I have on my PlayBook and putting all in order. I really like the three methods of viewing the files... especially in thumbnail mode (for finding pictures).
I have several file explorers installed, this one I find easy to use and navigate around the OS2 structure. Well worth buying.
Works like a file manager should, really good. It allowed me to find the files I was looking for. Worth having.
Great app and low cost. I love the tree view.
This is a must have on the PlayBook!
