AIR Browser: BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0


The new Blackberry Playbook OS should be available in early February.

Event if I'm working on a new release specially for this OS version (new SDK version, etc...), the current version of AIR browser (such as the others apps AIR Calc and AIR GReader) are working fine with the new OS...


[PlayBook] AIR Browser issues: No files

Hi again,

After installing for the first time AIR Browser (or during the first launch), you should have a message panel for allowing the app to access to the device file system (only the file system!).

In case you reject the authorization, the app wouldn't be able to display any content.

The solution is to go into the control panel of the tray (wheel icon notched on the top right)
Select Security > Application Authorizations > AIR Browser
Ensure that file access is "Allowed".

You can see this tip in AIR Browser page.
The Search engine should help you to find some tips...

Thank you


AIR Browser updates


I did many releases recently, then I'd like to explain the last features.

1. File extension
I was reticent to provide this option because of this operation is very dangerous. Inexperienced users could be bothered by the fact they can't open their files anymore...
Now users can change any file extension, and add extension to a file even if it doesn't have one.

2. Image Thumbnail
I had some problems with this, Did a couple release to fix it.
By clicking on the folder icon on the top menu bar, you will see a check-box to enable/disable the thumbnail display. This option is persistent: closing the app won't reset your choice.
For those who having images folders containings many HD pictures, the last release improve the thumbnail display and prevent the saturation of the memory (and crash).

The next release will revert English as the default language. I just forgot to revert it after testing the languages.
Always about languages, the Portuguese language should be available soon! Thank you Diego.

If anyone is interested to help me by providing me translation services, I will be thankful.
I will provide you the English version (or any available).
There is no big deal, just few labels to translate... It shouldn't take so long...

Thank you
