X-plore for Symbian goes freeware

Published by at

One little utility that has been popular over the years for digging into the recesses of your Symbian smartphone's file system has been X-plore. Traditionally it has been fully working shareware, but with the developer's newer forays into other mobile platforms, X-plore has now been released as freeware, with a new version number, v1.60. Screenshots and link below.

Here's X-plore 1.60 in action, note that its compatibility is very wide and will run on everything from the oldest S60 devices onwards (even 'Series 60 2nd Edition is supported via a separate download):

Somewhat oddly, the license agreement pane still refers to the shareware origins - ah well, at least there's no 3 second delay on starting and exiting, this is the real freeware deal; confirmation of build date and version number

X-plore in action, tap to expand a folder - you'll get the hang of it. Long press anything for context-sensitive actions and note that many things about the interface (including the zoom/font level) can be customised in its 'Configuration' section on the menu; X-plore is supremely capable, from file viewers to an integrated zip archive tool

You can grab X-plore 1.60 freeware by visiting the download page here. Happy file browsing!

(I'd been waiting for this release anyway, but a heads up from Nokialino jogged me to check again)
