Why does the file manager have to be so difficult to use, i.e. for moving pictures?

For example, the camera saved many photos in device memory, and since that does not show up in mass storage mode, and the directory can't be moved, and multiple files can't be selected, it's now necessary to move each picture one at a time.


On the Storm with 5.0, it's taking 16 clicks and 3 swipes to move each picture.  Multiple that by 100+ and I should be in for carpal tunnel just because the camera was accidentally saving internally.


It never occurred to anyone in Waterloo that someone might need to delete more than 1 file at once, or move many pictures from internal memory to the media card?


This is right up there with being unable to download an e-mail attachment after it was clicked trying to open it.  Even a cheap pocket camera has a "move all from internal memory to card" function.
