Files Tab
« on: October 11, 2004, 05:40:29 pm »
First off to the OZ team, great work.  This is the first OZ release (3.5.1) I've really sat down and tried, and I do like it a lot.  But more than anything, with Sharp dropping support for the Z, it's great that there are still community members willing to work towards it.

I was wondering if there is any chance we might see a Sharp-esque "Files" tab in OZ.  I normally have A LOT of files on SD cards, and so I have to have the "Documents" tab turned off (or else it takes forever to load, blah blah blah).   In contrast, the "Files" tab in itself was enough to convince me to upgrade to Sharp ROM 3.10.

There is a program called MyPDA that replaces the entire launcher with a filer-browser-like interface here.  It's designed for OZ, so maybe it would be an easy start for something like this.  The source doesn't appear to be available yet, but the fact that there's a note like that makes me believe it's GPL.

Anyway, thanks again for your efforts, and please keep up the good work.

The source hasn't been available since I last checked it out, probably a year ago. I wouldn't hold my breath.

We also would like to see such a FilesTab, but no one of the (small) Opie team has time to implement it. Patches welcome.
