    Have you fixed the image copying bug? It could be down to your filesystem handling... sometimes images don't seem to be copied properly and can't be read by the Pictures app.

    I agree that copy/paste has to be a lot faster. Other Android apps like Ghost Commander can do this instantly. PBOS/QNX provides a POSIX interface which I assume would make it very easy to modify files and folders.

    I'm 99.9% certain this is a bug in the OS, not in our app, as other apps have the same trouble. It looks like the screenshot feature is setting incorrect permissions on the file.

    Help? I have recently saved a pic from BBM-later decided to delete it. However in spite of the picture being deleted, the image of the pic still appears in my picture app, like a ghost that doesn't want to go away. It appears in an unknown album as well. In file manager however, it doesn't appear. I've tried rebooting, even took the battery out, but nothing works. This is on my phones's hardrive and not memory card. It's extremely annoying! Is there a solution?

    Try to press the power button and release the button as the device has rebooted.

    I tried doing that, twice now-just to make sure I'm doing the right thing, but the unknown album with ghost thumbnail still appears.

    We're working on some neat updates, but can't publish schedules.

    The drawback is speed. We prioritize reliability, functionality and flexibility over pure performance. Copying or moving a file or folder locally could be made more efficient, at the expense of flexibility. Files & Folders isn't yet optimized for situations where the source and destination of a copy/paste are the same. But those optimizations are quite high on our to-do list.
    Any new on this? Are you gonna update the playbook version and improve copying speed? Or has this app been abandoned too?

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do. You should be able to stream music from Dropbox to F&F in its integrated media player- you shouldn't have to download the tunes to play them. But, if you want to store your music in the cloud for playback, the best app for this is probably ES File Explorer, which needs to be sideloaded. ES is the only app that I'm aware of that allows you to queue up a number of tunes for playback, rather than having to select them one at a time as all other cloud access apps do. You can also create playlists of songs stored in the cloud. Also, if you're just looking to download music from Dropbox to your PB, from my experience, ES downloads files considerably faster than Files and Folders does.

    thanks
    I am trying to get music from drop box on to my pb so I can play them when I am not connected. I don't see the point in using data to stream them when I can just download while I am using free wifi.
    I hope I am explaining myself correctly.

    Well then, for me, the best app for transferring files to and from the cloud is X-Plore file manager. It's a dual pane android file manager like Ghost Commander except that is has Cloud access and in that it needs to be sideloaded. Being a dual pane manager, it means you can navigate to your Dropbox music folder in one pane, and navigate to your Playbook's music folder in the other pane. Then, you can multi select the DropBox files you want to move, hit copy on the toolbar, and the files will be transferred to your Playbook. You don't have to keep navigating back and forth as you do in F&F. Again, downloads for me are much faster using X-Plore- twice as fast or more for me than F&F when transferring files from my Box accounts (not sure about DropBox). The only downside is you can't access Google Drive from X-Plore, but you can access Box, DropBox, SugarSync and SkyDrive with it.

    yup you nailed it.
    its a pain going back and forth with f&f. that's why I was checking on version 6
    I have never side loaded anything before. maybe its time I learned

    For Google Drive, I'd recommend ES File Explorer. I'm running 1.6.2.5, which easily accesses G Drive, though transfers are not quite as easy as X-Plore for the other Cloud services. Stay away from the latest versions of ES (it's up to version 3.0.?), since, though the UI is nice, for some reason it can't access the cloud on the Playbook.

    YW. A couple of tips for ES that some may not know about. One is that ES has multiple tabs, Local, LAN, Net, FTP, and Bluetooth, You can switch between tabs from ES's homescreen by swiping left or right on the screen. Second, in settings/layout settings, you can choose which tabs to show and which not to show (I hide bluetooth and FTP so I don't have to swipe through them). You can also enable the tab select bar by swiping down from the top. Third, in settings/Home Directory, if you set it to /accounts/1000/shared/ you'll be taken to the playbook's media folders each time you open the app, and fourth, in settings/Root Settings, check the box "Up to Root" to give you full access to the playbook's file system.
