    file explorer $0.99
    file browser $0.99
    files and folder $2.99
    my file manager $1.99
    air browser FREE

    many others too!

    What's the difference? I heard a lot of positive reviews for "files and folder" but its the most expensive one and from the screenshots, I prefer the "my folder manager". Does the extra one or two dollar really make a difference? how is it compared to the FREE air browser (which is the one that I'm using at the moment)

    I have both File Browser and Files and Folders. F and F is worth the extra Starbucks Grande.

    I would personally recommend Files & Folders.
    Tried/Purchased a number of the others on your list but now I just use Files & Folders. I still kept the other one as backup, but barely use it.
    If you expect to work with a lot of files on your playbook, and across the supported cloud storage services, then Files & Folders is really for you. Otherwise, if it's just simple renaming, file cut & paste (or move) functions that you're after, then I guess you can settle for the others.
    Personally, I think the extra $2 is well worth the app.
    Hope this helps.

    I've used files and folders and my file manager. My file manger is what I stuck with. Its simple, fast and very productive. Definitely worth 1.99.

    If looking for free then nothing beats Air Browser, otherwise I like My File Manager more, it provides bundle of functionality and with good presentation.

    I'm waiting for the native file manager in OS2

    ...but currently my primary file manager is Stuff...it's the easiest one to choose between viewing files on the playbook or the BB phone - it's two buttons, at opposite corners

    You keep your finger on the file to get a pop-up menu...it's easy to copy files from the phone to the BB - to paste you actually have to be in the folder and touch another file and paste

    Unless I'm not seeing it, AIR Browser is pretty basic... One of the things I wanted to dig through was the system directories, but it won't even let you go outside of the user folders.

    I like File Commander because it reminded me of Total Commander on my PC so I was use to it. I wish they had TC on the PB. Its available on Android for free.

    I installed Air Browser when I got my Playbook last month because I did not want to pay for a file manager when OS2 will have one natively. I don't mind paying for apps but I don't want to pay for something I will only use 2 months!

    If you have OS2 and can side-load it, then ES File Explorer is pretty good.

    Another vote here for Files & Folders. Well worth the $2.99 I have File Browser as well, it is ok but isn't as robust as Files & Folders.

    Another Files and Folders vote here. It's probably the best 3 bucks I've spent on my PlayBook so far...
