Files and Folders for the BlackBerry PlayBook updated to v4.0.2 - adds SugarSync support and more!


I became a fan. Just get 3.0 try version few weeks ago and purchased after that. Really more powerful and scalable than other free and 0.99 options. Great app.

Great app, better now and this happened like two days ago.
You guys and gals at crackberry swamped or just a lot of Vacation time going on all at once for the staff?

Enjoy the weather because I know I am :)

Still lacks even the most basic wireless communication with PC's on your network LAN. The lower end $0.99 file managers have basic FTP, while some free android file managers have an even better smb included along with all the functions that this app has.
The developer has informed me that free smb can't be put onto paid apps due to open source licensing protocols. This is not any fault of this developer.

Amazing, a workaround for SugarSync support on the PlayBook !

SugarSync is a Cloud Storage solution that lets your computer to fully encrypt your files before sending out:
With SugarSync, you get 5GB of cloud storage space with the FREE version, but now there is no restriction to the number of computers you can sync/backup (up from 2). Now there is no restriction on the public photos (Facebook, etc.) you can post in the FREE version also!

It gives you the ability to upload and sync any folder on your computer.
It is the only service that offers such a broad device and OS support with apps for BlackBerry, PlayBook, Android, iPhone/iPad, Symbian, not to mention your computer!
You can also stream MP3 music files to your smartphone or computer.
Also if you use the below referral code you get a bonus 500MB extra on top of your Free 5GB!

Hope this helps someone!
