    Very good update, that's a great initiative to include an FTP server into NX-Shell, this is definitely gonna be useful to me !

    Have a happy new year and relax man, we'll wait for the next update :)

    Btw I was thinking about something for the video player, does it play webm? That'd be neat as it's a good format for small random videos and I'm sure I'm not the only one here with a collection of those that I picked on imageboards ^^

    NX-Shell-3? I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    ATM, video player was removed due to some complexities and the availability of other alternatives. As of now I can't really make any comments on it, but I'll look into some other features in the meantime.

    Does this support split zip files? I don't mind if it can't make them, but can it unpack them?

    Yes, it can't make them but it can unpack them.

    You should at least see a file called PRF2SAFE.RCV

    This app is awesome!
    I love the clean UI, and the fact you can use FTP!
    BTW there's a USB store device support?

    Minor update v1.20 released. Just wanted to get this one out as it includes some critical fixes and changes.

    Change-log:
    • Now uses official software keyboard with text validation for creating/renaming folders and files.
    • Refactored FS code to support copying to/from other mount points. (copying files now uses internal fs functions)
    • Properly get free/max storage for each partition using FS rather than NS.
    • Fixed progress bar from incorrectly blending into the background.
    • Update SDL_FontCache to v0.10 and revert back to using the Roboto font - which now properly displays accented characters such as é.
    • Display MP3 id3v2 cover art image if found.

    Screenshot

    Official keyboard is best imo thanks for adding it :) Could you add an auto update feature in future?

    I would easily be able to implement nightlies or something if the switch curl packages supported tlsv1.2.

    If you have the homebrew store you can easily update from there...

    Hmm, I guess that would work too :P How about an update notification when starting the app?

    Not a good idea if you want to stay on an older version for whatever reason or if you can't update because you can't easily download stuff (relying on 4G network...etc), I think it's totally okay to rely on stalking the git, thread updates and on the homebrew store to get informed and download new updates.

    Though I think the homebrew store should be updated to have more categories, especially a category for newly released apps (to promote new apps to common users who don't go lurk around forums) and also a category for themes (as for now they're invading the store and are classified as applications which makes browsing through the store quite harsh) it should also have a functionality to list all installed apps and update/remove them and also have an in-app button to exit the app back to the HBL but that should be discussed on a more appropriate thread...

    Talking about that I have a relatively simple ergonomy suggestion for NX-Shell that is the following :
    Why not bind the contextual action menu to the "+" button and add an in app button that we'd find on the bruger menu that we find by pressing "-" to leave the app, this would have two advantages, make things more intuitive/clean and also make the app totally usable from gamepad...

    If you want to provide nightlies maybe you should release a second NX-Shell app on the store for nightlies (I know I would occasionally use it to give you feedback on this thread), this would save you the cost of coding an in-app updater while still making things quite convenient...
