This application has seen only the finest improvements. I purchased about 6 file apps for my PlayBook those first couple months. I kept about 4 of them installed for quite a while too. Just couldn’t pick a favorite. Some have tons of features, but are difficult to navigate, others have just a few features with a good UI…
F & F has everything I want and then a bit more. Google Docs access, Box.net access, Dropbox access, SugarSync access, BlackBerry Bridge, Remote and Email access. Some features are still in the beta phase but between the UI and the functions I have to put my money on Innovatology’s Files and Folders. Check it out below.
