    Really first rate work Jason! The changes in this most recent version of Internalz are just fantastic. I hope you're considering Rahul Sood's Facebook comment encouraging you to investigate employment opportunities with Palm.

    You've brought essential functionality to WebOS; albeit functionality that at this point can only be available to the Homebrew community. On the "inside", you'd be able to bring Internalz's file management yumminess to the masses of WebOS users who (for whatever misguided reason) don't want to use Homebrew or (perish the thought) aren't aware of it.

    One thought I'd like to plant in your mind for possible inclusion in a future version... the ability to select multiple files for moving and deleting. I'd guess that's already on your list somewhere, but just in case...

    Agreed 1000%. Even though we know that we're dealing with developers of the highest character with Jason and the WebOS Internals team, third party apps/utilities such as Internalz and Preware should always explicitly prompt the user to choose such associations.

    Yea, I've contacted Rahul. I love Palm and would love the opportunity to do whatever I can for them. Also, I'm looking into possibility ofhaving a pdk hybrid app powered a much less powerful, more restricted version of Internalz.

    For the record, Internalz doesn't force default handler status on any file extension. It simply adds webOS as a possible handler. If there isn't any other app that uses that extension, then webOS uses it as default, which makes sense. But with already-existing extensions, the user needs to specifically change filetype associations; nothing forced A great example of this is txt files, which remain mapped to DocView and if users want Internalz to handle txt files, they need to make the decision and set the choice themselves

    What version of FileMgr do you have installed?

    I have the v1.1.5 FileMgr installed

    Java restart did not fix anything

    The one thing I'm missing is a simple (i.e. GUI-based) way to upload files to my website.

    Thank you for your fast answer. Even if I am not a developer, I am curious of what could cause something like that.

    Thank you for your help in making the palm pre what it is with this great tool.

    Have a good day.

    Hey Jason

    Thanks for the wonderful app, I love how one can hide few things from webos, is it possible to hide an entire folder rather than just a file. That would make things very smooth. Thanks a lot.

    Update: Realized I can do it by tapping and holding

    Imternalz sets itself as the default handler for .ipk files (if there is no default handler already). The posts from Roy Sutton and garavin are saying that it should ask the user before doing so.

    It's not a question of forcing or not, it's a question of making file associations without the user being aware.

    Most of the rows are greyed out. How can I add an app? For example, I'd like Music (Remix) to be my default music player.

    The author of the application needs to add code to make that happen, and then the application should ask you the first time it is run whether you want it to add the association or not.

    does anyone know the directory location of the folder that is used for the download location for the palm app catalog?

    App Catalog downloads ipk files then installs them (removing ipk file after install). The app data can be found in /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/

    I'm still learning as it goes.. Awesome job! Just donated!

    Jason, watching the new features video for 1.3, I was very happy to learn how to edit the autoreplace word list by watching you do it, as some of the replacements drive me mad and I hadn't looked into how to change it... So your video was informative on different levels...

    Now... I tried to edit the list (en_ca), but when I go to save it, the program just stalls and doesn't save. The application doesn't freeze completely as I can do a back gesture and the popup with yes and no goes away, but the modifications aren't saved.

    Master mode is enabled, I have tried to save, as you did in the video, by back gesture and answering yes, also tried by going in the menu and clicking save file and also tried to enable to autosave... none of which worked. I tried to uninstall Internalz and FileMgr and re-installing, restarting the phone. Nothing. Tried to copy the file to user storage and edit it from there... Nothing.

    It did work when I tried to edit other files (as a test) like the en_us and fr_ca, which are smaller than the en_ca which is 88.1k.

    anyway... don't know if this is a known issue or not... Regardless, keep up the kick *** work, you're amazing!

    Note that the current testing version of Preware now asks the user's permission before making any changes to the file association table. This should satisfy your valid concern about security implications - thanks for raising it as part of the public alpha testing.

    I recommend the same change be done to Internalz, but that is Jason's call of course.

    Is there a way to use the Pre's image viewer when opening images in Internalz? I want to be able to scroll through all the images in a folder...but it's not looking like it's possible?

    And it may very well in next release Though I am curious why you're re-quoting/restating a post you've already made several comments on and saying the same point again. And talking with Roy, the security concern he had was not just about filetype association, but also with installing possibly malicious ipk files, so I don't think it's possible to ever be completely out of security risk with ipk install. Unfortunately, ever since 1.4.0, users have to be responsible with their installation choice, all we can do is minimize the risk, giving as much info as possible.

    You can disable Internalz as default image viewer. However, as Palm never made their Photos app able to handle launch targets, it's not possible currently.
