UIQ is dead! But not for CellPhoneSoft, one of the most active software houses that still supports UIQ and who has produced File Associate, which can assign different applications to open files. For example, it can associate .DOC files with Docs To Go instead of the built-in Quickword. And it has a generic viewer to view .ZIP, SWF and TXT files too! Screens after the break.
Basically if you have installed the mainserver modulw with my Y-Tasks, you have had the possibility to change the file associations (i.e map the file types to other applications) since July 7th 2007 already, so it has been possible with freewares for quite some time already.
Yukka, your app is surely the first one that can change file associations on Symbian. What we meant by novelty is customizing the associations and providing a multipurpose viewer at the same time. All kudos to your great work!
