Y-Browser Updated to V0.88
I’m wondering why the super-popular free S60 3rd Edition file browser, Y-Browser, hasn’t yet been updated to V1.0. Whatever the cause, Y-Browser V0.88 is now available for download, and this time it’s not a MOSH-only application. The update brings several bug fixes, provides FP2-compatibility and offers new features like file type associations and command shortcuts available via its Settings menu. In addition, the download page now offers updated V0.88-compatible plug-ins such as BtObex sender, Mail folders, Text viewer and Zip.
If you are a Symbian screen reader user, note that Y-Browser 0.88 doesn’t work smoothly with screen readers. That is, as you press Right to move to the list of files inside a folder and then press Up and Down to navigate among the files inside that folder, both TALKS and Mobile Speak tend to repeat the full directory path before reading the file name which gains focus. This is much more noticeable with TALKS as the so-called screen refreshes get announced in rapid successions — something for both screen reader developers to look at. I’ve used my N82 to test both screen readers with Y-Browser 0.88.
