Royal File Explorer

Royal File Explorer

On the BoostApps Forum, user tAG has been trying out file explorer apps on his Sanyo Incognito. He found a couple that work, this one and another I can’t post because it’s commercial.  According to the publisher;

“Royal File Explorer is a powerful File Manager for Java J2ME enabled mobile phones. It is the complete tool for managing your files on your mobile phone.

It has features like Copy/Paste, Rename, Delete, Create Directory, View File Properties, Read and Write Protection of files, Hidden Files.”

File explorer apps are generally only useful with Java ME phones that have a memory card.  The phones’ internal memory is usually locked down and inaccessible to 3rd party apps.  One possible exception is the Sanyo Mirro which supposedly has a folder in internal memory that is accessible.

I tried Royal File Explorer on my Motorola i776 and Motorola Rambler, neither of which support memory cards. It installs on both but isn’t usable .

On the Rambler it displays a blank screen and locks up.

On the i776 it shows a couple of empty directories but  doesn’t let you do anything with them. There also seems to be a key mapping issue on the i776 as the left soft key, which is supposed to be the Menu key, doesn’t work and none of the other keys bring up a menu either.

For now the only phone that Royal File Explorer is known to work on is the Incognito.  Leave a comment if you try it on a different phone and it works.

There’s another file manager on BoostApps called Ultimate File Explorer that is known to work on the i856 and other iDEN phones with memory cards.
