First File Manager with Bluetooth Transfer for WP7
Some time ago, we brought you news of a Bluetooth file transfer application for Windows Phone 7. While it was quite a simple application, the Dark Forces Team app was also pretty powerful. With Bluetooth transfers achieved, it has given application developers another feature to include in their own applications.
Unique File Manager provides WP7 users with all the standard features of a good file manager, plus the added bonus of being Bluetooth transfer-capable. Developed by XDA Forum Member MOHSEN-UNIQUE, with credit given to the Dark Forces Team, the file manager is the first for Windows Phone 7 that is capable of Bluetooth transfer. A list of additional features include:
send any file via bluetooth(thank dft for buletooth driver)
can run any file in wp7 that definition in registry
can install xap file
can processing script file (.PROVXML)
can Extract zip file in to a folder
can manage file/folder (copy cut paste delete rename)
can view any file as text
The XAP does come with a disclaimer: Users will have to be running a fully unlocked ROM in order to use all of the features. Otherwise, it’s a very clean and efficient file manager, so any WP7 user looking to add to their app list would do well to give it a try.
To get started, check out the original thread.
