Microsoft OneDrive comes to BlackBerry 10

Hot off the press — BlackBerry have today given us another cloud storage option, this time with Microsoft's OneDrive. It's more likely that Windows Phone users will use OneDrive routinely, but we now have the option for BlackBerry 10 as well.

The app itself is much the same as the DropBox and Box apps we've had from BlackBerry from day one. You have the ability to toggle on and off auto uploads of both pictures and video as well the disabling using your mobile network. 

Features include: 

  • Automatically back up pictures and videos you capture on your device.
  • Share important files and documents.
  • Comment on or edit documents while you're on the go.
  • Seamlessly and easily work with your online files on your device.

As I'm already a OneDrive account holder due to having various Windows Phones over the last few years I'm not entirely sure how much free cloud storage you get when you sign up these days. Feel free to let us know in the comments.

Well it's about time,I hope BB didn't give them the Ford contract???

seascape

Huh?

I think it's nice that BlackBerry is developing BBM for Windows Phone and Microsoft released OneDrive for BB10. Now, how about Bing + Bing Maps for BB10? Not a shortcut, but a REAL native app.

rain620

YES. Among all these platforms, WP and BB are those who should help each other.

koolrosh

It was probably as a result of giving them BBM. I'm sure there will be more partnership between BlackBerry and Microsoft in the future.

Know if there are any file size limits? I use Box instead of dropbox because of the automatic backup but it's useless for videos since they exceed the max file size limit. Does One Drive have this as well?

Don't trust MS any more than Google so, I'll pass. However, it's good news for those who need it.

I do wish they would add automatic media uploads to Dropbox.

somerandombbusername

I used to be like that, but times have changed. Now I trust MS more.

grant.palin

Strangely, I've felt before, and do feel now, the same. Plus the way Microsoft are tying together their systems, and the modern design, suits me better.

Supa_Fly1

^ agreed! At least their offering EAS for free to everyone not trying to nickel and dime us like the conglomerate Google.

grant.palin

That's helpful, but one's got to wonder where the catch is. "No free lunch"...There is an optional yearly fee to remove advertising, but I'm looking for information about support.

Prem WatsApp

During the early 2000's, it was like "evil Microsoft", (Google was on the rise, but I didn't expect them to get that far), and Linux was the Rebel force against the Evil Empire. The "Year of the Linu-X Desktop" was going to hit any day.

Now it looks like Microsoft had the more "honest" business model, selling a software product in conjunction with some services instead of a now huge advertising company that started harmless as a search engine, gradually commercialized search results, sidebars and the rest of the web, made "free" services available, propelled user tracking and pretty much desensitized the majority of the web population of privacy concerns. (Just my view)

The "betrayal" also was, Google kind of supported open source, but that seems like a pretty one-sided thing now on their terms, they got big "not being evil" on the back of Mozilla whereas Microsoft was closed source and therefore "evil" with their "embrace, extend, extinguish" approach. (Agree to disagree, this is purposefully opinionated)

How things have changed now. Microsoft has moved into a much more positive light, now that they're not the dominating 600pound gorilla anymore.

The native app integration is MUCH nicer and cleaner than the Android app.

it would be nice if all the platforms just play nice, and allow the consumer to have choice of phones, not just because one has the apps etc, the choice of product should be on the quality of the phone,
this is great for me because I have now 3 cloud storage area's the gigs are adding up

Gord Cluthe

I agree with the "just play nice" and let the consumer decide.

It appears that with this announcement as well as BBM coming to WP soon; that the right people finally got together and shook hands on the right agreements.

deltact

I think the mobile industry will shift to the sharing and cross-licensing model once the market matures more, like the non-mobile computing industry.

Precisely right! It's headed that way. OS's and devices will become generic. Like who cares what brand TV they have at home - it's a technology that is mature and big breakthroughs more rare...

Finally! Guess BlackBerry made the app so they could integrate it into File Manager (probably with Microsoft's help); it's just like the Connect To DropBox, but better with camera backup!

Glad that now I'm able to access my Sky drive from the file manager. Just a bit let down though cause only shows 7Gb available

This is very timely as I am gradually moving away from GMail, having set up an Outlook account and gained access to the resultant services - OneDrive, Office Online etc. Already added the new Outlook account to my Z10. Now I'll hook up OneDrive.

I'm hoping this will eventually lead to some integration with Office Online for editing of Office docs, saved via OneDrive. Wouldn't mind being able to use OneNote on my BB!

They have the infrastructure to do it.. at least I think so.

Just sold my Macbook Air for a Surface Pro 2 because I felt kind of claustrophobic. This could not have come more timely! Thanks MS and BlackBerry!

mmcpher

Huzzah! I've had sideloaded Andorid apps to access SkyDrive/OneDrive for years now, but this is by the far the prettiest. It looks functional and smooth, although I haven't tried uploading. I would like to have it integrated as one of the main "save to" options on my Z30! Can't wait for BBM for WP!

Oh, and I get 75 gigs for OneDrive. I have Windows on a number of pc's, a WP, a Surface Pro and Office 365. You get some for each, and they are making progress with integration across all of the above. Not there yet.

I like OneDrive but i access it through the native bb10 app called PlayCloud. PlayCloud seeamlessly intergrates OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, SugarSync, and few other storages. And it gives all the functionality that this new OneDrive app does, even sharing folders through email.

I presume there alphabetical so if I rename my laptop and desktop to for instance work laptop it would be listed after onedrive?

I no longer have a single Android app on my phone except the ported version of flipboard that I don't use anyways. I am proud to say that BlackBerry 10 has come a long way since last February. Hopefully BlackBerry goes hard with the next generation of devices because I think their relevance is returning and their hard work on the new OS is paying off. Keep it up!

This didn't so much make my day as make my entire week, especially given the automatic photo uploading.

Oh, hi everyone btw. First post here.

dannybaird

Xandrex_BSCF

This is the difference between Microsoft and Google.

Google want you to use all their Google services.
Microsoft want you to use some of their services chosen strategically to benefit them.

And today what benefits Microsoft is to eat cloud market share (OneDrive vs GoogleDrive).
