I've had a variety of smartphones including Palm, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry devices. In every case, however, there was one type of software that I looked for right away. A file manager. To me it does me no good to have a 2 gigabyte storage card in my smartphone if I don't have a smart way to work with those files. On the Blackberry I've discovered eFile by Dynoplex. This is a full-featured file manager that lets you move files, delete files, rename files, and even make directories or folders. There's a free version of eFile, but I'm going to talk about the features in the full version eFile Pro. The interface is somewhat similar to Windows Explorer. It's quite intuitive and easy-to-use and that's really nice when you're talking about working on a smartphone. The program even has a tiny arrow cursor that you move around as you would a mouse. This makes it easy to navigate around files and folders. eFile Pro gives you the ability to easily store files on whatever type of storage card your device uses. So, when you get an email with an attachment you can easily save it to storage and later move it to your PC. Another feature of eFile Pro is unlimited online storage. That's right, when you buy eFile Pro you get a free account where you can store as much as you want. You can backup the contents of your data card to this online area or save your attachments there. The site is really secure because it uses your Blackberry PIN for authorization in addition to a user name and password. Your data is also encrypted. The storage is a terrific feature to have because you can keep data there and then access it from anywhere. eFile Pro is solid and very easy-to-use, perfect for all users. If you have a BlackBerry device and want a way to work with files this is your solution. Give it a try, I recommend it.


If you have software you use on your "smartphone" or PDA, come and talk about it with us in the Forums. We look forward to seeing you there.
