    • and many others.

    Probably not. If it was, I assume the source code would also be published on the download page.

    Love this app but could I make a couple of requests for future releases please?

    Would it be possible to disable the tip after the first launch of the app? I'm referring to the popup that appears in the top right of the screen when FileBrowser is launched:
    TIP: Use left arrow key or touch drag to left to move up in the directory structure.

    Also, I think the selection system could be improved. At the moment, if I want to select multiple items that are not listed next to each other, I have to select them one at a time then choose whether to move/copy etc then I move on to the next item. I think it could be improved with a modified press and hold feature. A single tap on the selection tick icon could just enable single selection. That way people can choose multiple folders/files with a single tap. Then there could be a tap and hold for 2 seconds to enable the option to select consecutive files. Then a press and hold for 3 or 4 seconds to select all.

    I'm not sure if this is making much sense. I know what i'm trying to say but it's tricky to explain. I can include some screenshots to demonstrate what I mean if that will help.

    Thanks for any help and I really appreciate the work you have done so far. FileBrowser is the best app of its kind imo.

    Sorry about the very late reply, did not notice this earlier There are currently no plans to make further updates. In the Symbian Foundation there used to be an EPL version which you can use as base of your custom updates.
