With new devices comes new software, and with new software invariably come ways to bring that software to the masses. Whether it’s Beats Audio from HTC, Bravia stuff from Sony, or even TouchWiz from Samsung, developers often take OEM-specific software and spread them to other devices. On that note, anyone running Ice Cream Sandwich can now take advantage of some new Huawei software, namely their File Manager and Cloud+ Drive.
XDA Forum Member harisn has posted the applications for anyone running ICS. So far it’s been tested on at least the Samsung Nexus S. The file manager is simply a file manager, and really it only stands to add options to the already solid list of file managers. It should be noted, however, that it does not always work right with devices lacking a MicroSD slot. Says harisn:
SD Card option in File Manager will not work / crash on Android phones with no (or virtual) SD card slots i.e Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Rest of the app works great!
Cloud+ Drive gives users 5 GB of free, and thus might be worth installing even if you’re not the biggest fan of Huawei. Of course, you need to have the File Manager installed before trying Cloud+ Drive, as the two work together. It should also be noted that if these work well for enough devices, harisn plans on releasing the following apps:
camera, music, keyboard, sound recorder and Huawei’s DLNA apps that works perfectly fine on my phones!
So if you’re looking for some Huawei goodness, check out the original thread._________
