    iPhoneOS 2.x and 3.x Support

    iFile 1.0.x added full support for iPhoneOS 3.0 and is still fully compatible with iPhoneOS 2.x. Starting with iFile 1.1.0 iFile contains two executables:

    • One (identical with 1.0.1-1) for iPhoneOS 2.x users and
    • One for iPhoneOS 3.x users with all the new functionality starting with 1.1.0-1.

    Please check out the change-log here.
    Registration Process

    The registration process works the following way:

    • Upgrade to 1.1.0-1
    • Buy iFile in Cydia Store (if other payment methods are required please contact me via email).
    • Enter your email address in iFile's Preferences->Registration Status,
    • Leave iFile's Preferences
    Registered versions of iFile give the user additional functionality. For 1.1.0-1 this is

    • The capability of the ifile:// URL scheme for use by other programs like AttachmentSaver and Safari Download Manager.
    • File name search.
    • External viewer support.
    • Playlist playing in new Audio Player.
    • Display of song title instead of file name for audio files.
    • Display of thumbnails instead of default icons for images.
    • Text editor search functionality.
    Unregistered versions will behave the same way as 1.0.0-2 or 1.0.1-1, i.e. they show a registration pop-up once a day.

    You should buy iFile in Cydia Store. However, if you want to support the iFile development beyond that, donations via PayPal are always welcome.

    Until release 1.1.0-1 iFile has seen
    • 640,000 downloads of release 1.1.0-1
    • 390,000 downloads of release 1.0.1-1
    • 211,000 downloads of release 1.0.0-2
    • 186,000 downloads of release 0.9.7-1
    • 1,700,000 downloads of all releases.

    [​IMG]Feature Roadmap

    There are already following feature requests from iFile users for future versions of iFile:Release 1.2.0

    • Additional Localizations
      • Support for Croatian, Finnish and Korean added.
    • Fixes
      • Fixed crash when starting Movie Player after Audio Player.
    • Preferences
      • Setting to show/hide application names in /var/mobile/Applications
      • Setting to allow showing files in groups (Grouping)
      • Setting to allow sorting in ascending or descending order.
      • Thumbnail limit stored in iFile preferences, but not shown in Preferences GUI.
    • File Browser
      • iFile-to-iFile Bluetooth file transfer. On receiver side no registration required. On sender side iFile needs to be registered.
      • The file browser allows now to group files depending on the chosen sorting:
        • Alphabetic Grouping with Index: A-Z, and #.
        • Grouping by Extensions
        • Grouping by Size Ranges: 0-10KB, 10-100KB, 100KB-1MB, 1MB-10MB, 10MB-100MB, >100MB.
        • Grouping by Date Ranges: Today, Yesterday, Earlier this week, Last week, Earlier this month, Last month, Two months ago, Earlier this year, Last year, Two years ago, Older.
      • Changed sorting of files names and extensions to be not only case
        insensitive, but also sort for numbers in file names, e.g. a file named "Hugo (10).txt" will now display after "Hugo (8).txt".
      • Fixed position of bookmark icon by using a custom icon instead of the system icon (iPhoneOS bug).
      • Enhanced file search to also search audio file tags (title, artist, album) when display of song titles is enabled in iFile's preferences.
    • File Types:
      • PDF Files: Users can now choose Web Viewer or PDF Viewer to view PDF files.
      • SQLite3: Support for mime-type application/x-sqlite3 interacting and using kennytm's SQLite3 application as external viewer (can be found here).
    • PDF Viewer
      • Fixed memory leak when changing to different page.
      • Moved "goto page" button to navigation bar displaying current page number and total number of pages.
      • Goto page dialog does not have a value preset anymore.
    • Emailing Attachments
      • Removed "Emailing Attachments with iFile" from subject and "iPhone Attachments with iFile" from body when sending emails with attachments.
    • Web Server
      • Added WebDAV support (allows usage of iFile as network drive on Windows, Linux and MacOSX) - this functionality is restricted to registered users.
      • Added support for username/password protection of the web server. This is only a basic protection.
      • Changed directory listing to list directories first and then files.
      • Fixed problem with sometimes incorrectly displayed http address of web server.
      • Fixed problem that the web server often complained about being unsuccessful in starting. The reason was that the port it tried to use was still in use. Now it reuses the port and does not complain anymore.
      • Fixed issue that the file name did not get used when uploading a file with Internet Explorer.
      • Changed how uploaded files get named in case file with same name already exists: New file gets original name with "(<number>)" plus extension, e.g. "uploaded.txt" gets renamed to "uploaded (1).txt" if "uploaded.txt" already exists.
    • MPEG 4 Audio File Parsing
      • iFile extracts the song length now directly from an m4a's meta data instead of using a slow system call. This speeds up listing of song titles in file browser for very large audio podcast files.
    • Audio Player
      • Added support for double tap on album cover to switch to playlist view.
      • Added new repeat mode to play a single song without repeat. This is the new default.
    • Video Player
      • TV Output support added when using an original Apple iPhone TV cable.
    • Compressed File Viewer
      • Fixed issue that not all files contained in a tar file did get displayed.
    • Unarchiver
      • In addition to the Compressed File Viewer it is now also possible to directly extract a compressed file without viewing its contents.
    Possible Features for release after 1.1.0

    • Add preferences setting to change the font style for the editor.
    • Allow direct extraction of compressed files instead of always showing contents first.
    • bluetooth file exchange
    • pinch to make row height larger or smaller in file browser.
    • Add support for image swiping in image viewer (requires new image viewer).
    • Add support for ics file type if easily possible.
    • Show alert in case of large email attachements.
    • webdav support of web server
    • MMS integration.
    • Support for password-protected zip's, rar's etc.
    • Add sections to directory browsing including letter shortcut bar.
    • Reload directory with shake.
    • Allow background playing of music.

    • playlist support for videos.
    • Addition of files to music library.
    • SpotLight integration of iFile (API is private and must be reenineered - may not be possible)
    • Add ID3/song info tag editor.
    • Add support for embedded cover images from mp3 files.
    • Preferences Editor:
        • Editing of mime-types, icons per extension, application etc.
        • This may not make sense since calling other applications, these applications need to support taking arguments, which they normally don't do.
        • Setting icons per extension is possible in mimetypes.plist file in theme. Since icons should come with a theme, the associated mimetypes.plist file should reflect that.
        • Adding extensions is something that may still be added since this is the only setting a user may require.

    You don't have to pay for iFile. Add the source repo.beyouriphone.com for a cracked version.
