  • New: Add "Ignore network information" (for BES users)
  • New: Add "always use open with..." option
  • New: Use Google Print Cloud service to print a Google Drive file or a Google Doc
  • New: Use Google Print Cloud service to print a URL
  • New: New authentication webdav method
  • New: Select All option
  • New: Password protection
  • Fix: Network "Online" status for BES users
  • Fix: Remove double buttons action
  • Fix: USB info (USB-OTG)
  • Fix: Change directory background in landscape mode
  • Fix: Italian translation

If you already own PlayCloud 10, the update should be showing as available. If you've not yet checked out PlayCloud 10, then be sure to check out our review of the app to get a better feel for it, especially if you work with a lot of different cloud services such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and even FTP servers. There's a free and paid version available so you can try out the app before you go all in and purchase it for $1.99.

it's to deter losers from just saying first!! There is no need to say it at all... Now run back to your basement and wait for mommies approval!

You have an odd fetish with basements and "mommies"

You have an odd fetish of looking stupid by saying first. Why not just make a comment that doesn't necessitate saying first? Or is that too complex for you and others like you who think it's cool to say first like a moron?

First of all:-) I agree that's it's a bit silly, however, it's not a big issue ,it just is a little game. Q you gotta lighten up. Even Kevin gets in in the fun now and again.

Thanks crackbrry and Quick you think of how Kevin doesn’t mind and I'll think of what kind of credit card you use to talk to women.

You are more pathetic than I thought. I'm actually engaged, so your argument is so invalid that you trying to be cool with your name (lmfao) and being first, you just look even worse crying for attention. "Hey look at me, I'm cool, I'm trying to be cool by saying first and my "cool" name will get people liking me" LMAO run along troll, run along

OK let's do this

1) I never said was first. I asked why can't you say first. Being surprised that no one has commented
2) you state I crave attention yet I've commented a dozen times or so. I believe you comment every chance you get.
3) If we are name dropping Quicksilver is basically saying "second place" so I understand why you have sand in your vagina
4) You mentioned troll here is the term fool
"In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people"
Kind of what you just did.
5)congratulations on your engagement.

So......

For users who may not be in BES, how would you guys rate this app?

No involvement in company (ProgWeb) just very curious about the app as well as the security.

Thanks all!!

Meant "on BES" not "in BES"!!

I'd rate it about an 8 and use it daily. It's a great app and if an app was built into BB10 file management or even in the Hub, say, if BlackBerry made a developer phone verses a consumer phone, this app is in between. It's really the best out there working on all devices and in multiple languages. It's getting cleaner and easier to use which helps.

I guess this will have to do until we get support for Google Drive on OS10.

Is the NSA and google together on this playcloud?

From my  phone

Jesse Stanghini

I'm with you on this one. NSA runs anything Google. Sadly.

nicklas79

Ah ah :)

I'm only an independent developer. I do it only on my free time. I do it to support BlackBerry too. No data are collected and I don't communicate info.

However, as you use Google drive service, or other cloud, you should read the "private policy" of these services.

Can I hook up my own NAS behind the home router?

"OwnCloud" not "PwnCloud"

Bla1ze, EXCELLENT quick overview. Proud of you being a stellar new IEIC. I've used PlayCloud for a long time and daily and the ignore network information add-on is great as I use BES hard. Keep up the stellar work and look forward to reading more of you daily.

I bought the app after the write-up, but think I like the native file manager from 10.3 better. And since I only use BOX and BB RFA the other account integration is not needed. Nice app, but deleting it for now until I may need some of the features it offers.

Did it fix the SFTP issue?

kennyiceberry

User of the app for a month plus and it has probably been upgraded at least once already during that time. Increased stability is always welcome. I wasn't one of the folks asking for password protection, though I understand why some needed jt. On the other hand, I already have a device password; one needs to balance the need for vigilance with practicality--I personally don't want to be logging into services every time I go to use them. But it's good to have the facility if required.

Personally I am seriously down with the inclusion of the FTP client. In terms of clouds, that doesn't get more personal and of course, secure.

Great app to connect to my ownCloud.

It only misses ability to sync folders automatically.

It needs a picture browser and video streaming (like the Android app for Dropbox).

Also, too many system notifications for things like uploads and downloads.

Have had this app for over a year and I still find it very user-unfriendly.

Does anyone know how to remotely access files on a lenovo ix200 cloud edition using playcloud? Can it be done?

This sounds awesome. I enjoyed DJ Reyes' review, but never checked out the app.
I might just do that now. But it would be nice if they also integrated MEGA.

Proud to be the one who fixed Italian translation on this great app! :P

 does it better!

Good article. I use all of these and more. Maybe with more updates they will add even more storage. Thanks!
