File Managers

I have used Filez for several years now, but as many people have pointed out, its VFS support feels rather 'bolted on', since you have to type/graffiti the destination for any copy or move to SD card. LauncherX has quite good file management, but I still sometimes feel the need for a dedicated file manager, and now I have found the perfect solution in FileProg by Amit Gil. Fast(ish), simple and free: have a gold star.

A good tip

Paul Campbell read my last post and sent in the following brilliant tip for Snappermail users. Keep a copy of the TT Update on your SD card. Then if you have a hard reset and need to restore from SD card, do the following: Create a new message in Snappermail, attach the TT Update, tap on it to bring up the context menu, select 'Install'. That should install all the patches without you needing to go near your desktop.
