Folder Lite

I wanted to give you guys a heads up of a bug that I have just found in the latest version of Folder (1.2.1) regarding iOS 4 only.  Sometimes when you have had Folder opened already and it is running in the background, sending a file to Folder does nothing.  I can sometimes make this happen but sometimes it works.  I will track this down and get things cleared up for release as soon as I can.  As a workaround, you can go into the background manager on the iPhone by double-taping the home button.  Once you see Folder, tap and hold on it's icon.  A minus will appear and you can stop it from running.  Once you do this you will not have this problem of files not showing up after being sent like they should.  I am disappointed that this made it through my testing process, I want to get this fixed as soon as I can.  I will let you know here when I get a new version submitted.

I have also been working on getting a lite version of Folder up on the app store that is ad supported.  I know this isn't exciting for existing users, but if you have been waiting to try out Folder then you can for free once the lite version is released.

Thanks to all Folder users, I hope that you find it useful like I do.


  1. When will folder lite be available on the iTunes store?


  2. Hi frank,
    Folder lite is basically done, I have submitted it to apple. There was a problem with the way I implemented the ads (apparently you have to hide the ads if apple doesn't give you one). I should re-submit it this weekend and if all goes well about a week later it will be available.
