FileBrowser or FileBrowserGO?

Mon, 08 Oct 2018 14:00:00 GMT
FileBrowser or FileBrowserGO?

It's a question we get asked from time to time. The standard app is a once-only payment, updates are free and you get bug fixes and new features as regularly as we can make them. The FileBrowserGO app is subscription only and this allows you to try out the features free for two weeks after you sign up. Some of our customers like to support us regularly and the subscription model gives them the ability to keep doing that. Also we're adding extra features to FileBrowserGO as a way of saying thank-you to our subscribers. Much appreciated! Here's a comparison table of the features in our range of apps.

New Features Sync and Automatoc Backup

The new backup feature adds to the automatic sync capabilities of these apps. You can now set a local folder to automatically back up its content to any remote storage, computer or cloud. This is great for ensuring you never lose files you've stored in the app, and you can also use it to back up all of your photos. Any folder in the Photo Library can be replicated, so you can choose Camera Roll or Moments to categorise by date and location. There's no limit to the number of backups, so make sure you save your important stuff!

We love to receive emails from our users and we were really pleased to get this one: "I'm a graphic designer/web developer, and because of the onset of arthritis in my hands, my iPad is now a key development tool, as working with a mouse or trackpad is generally quite painful. FileBrowser allows me to work on my iPad, and share things seamlessly with any resource I need: something that would otherwise be a pain in the butt on iOS. Again, thank you: your efforts have made a difference in my working life."

Many businesses need to ensure their teams have up to date information available at any time, even when no network is available.

The setup is integrated with FileBrowser for Business' MDM settings feature so updating a fleet of devices with synchronised files is now really easy.

FileBrowser 5.4 released

Version 5.4 of FileBrowser is now available! In this version we've responded to many users requests for new file view modes.

On the iPad there is also a columns mode so files are listed with full details in up to three columns.

Another great feature is the new fast scroller. If you're trying to find a file in a folder containing hundreds of items, slide your finger up and down the right hand edge of the screen to quickly scroll through the folder.

More updates are coming, and yes, we are working on iOS8 specific features too!

FileBrowser 5.1 is now available

Sat, 05 Apr 2014 11:20:59 GMT
FileBrowser 5.1 now available

FileBrowser 5.1 is now available on the App Store, and it's packed with new features that we've already had many appreciative comments about. People love the new "Dark" theme colours which offer a focused iOS7 style view over your file systems. Of course the major new feature is Google Drive support, offering what we think is the most intuitive system for handling Google Drive documents. When you view a document, it's automatically converted to PDF for the best viewing experience, and when you copy a document to other storage or open it in another app, it's automatically converted to an Office format (Word, Excel etc) for editing. You have control over these options in the settings as well. Being able to organise, view, edit and back up or move your Google drive content to other storage has never been easier!
