    So I looked through the forums and couldn't find another post regarding this so I hope this helps someone.

    As is well known now, there are several free apps that are normally paid apps in App World for BlackBerry 7 customers. One of them is Fixmo Tools. I highly recommend it in general but I was just playing around with it, specifically "WiFi transfer" and it works pretty well on the PlayBook.

    There has been a lot of people here, (myself included) wishing and wanting a good way to transfer files between their PlayBooks and BlackBerry phones. Before I was using a file managing app to do this which sends files over Bluetooth. This is much faster!

    So my fellow Crackberryans, give it a shot! (And has anyone else already figured this out)

    App not found on Appworld in Canada?

    Edit: my mistake. Didn't know it was a phone app and not a PlayBook app. Wow! 7.99. Is it worth it?

    I think the Complimentary Apps might be US only Sorry Canada...
    But Fixmo is a GREAT APP and is worth that price!

    I actually purchased this app before it was free (in the US only unfortunately) for a whole $9.99 but I find that I use it daily. The undelete of emails and texts messages can be a real plus if you receive a lot of work emails or other things important, delete something then realize later "oh god I needed that one after all".
    Also I'm a fan of the Forward with edit function if there is an email using want to Forward but need to remove a section of it 1st.

    I have no affiliation with those who created this app or anything but if you already have it or wanted to get it this was a feature of the wifi file transfer that's not advertised in the app description.

    Very cool F2, and it's free. I've learned something new today as well.

    I've been using Fixmo Tools since day 1 of the beta. Love the way it's grown. The Undelete and Reply/Forward with Edit transfer are great. Couldn't live without them. I also use the Remote Print function a lot. Built-in SMS recovery as well. The latest versions alo allow you to delete modules that you may not want/need. I think $7.99 is well worth it.

    I haven't used Fixmo, but File Scout is pretty good.
