PlayCloud – Built for BlackBerry 10

Pour les possesseurs du BlackBerry PlayBook, peut-être connaissez-vous PlayCloud ; un explorateur de fichiers avec support de différents Clouds tels que Dropbox, Box, SkyDrive, Google Drive. PlayCloud a été écrit en ActionScript ; solution native sur PlayBook.

PlayCloud a été porté sur la nouvelle plateforme BlackBerry 10 ; puis a été complètement ré-écrit en C/C++ pour le coeur et Qt/Qml pour la partie graphique. A cette occasion, l’application a été re-baptisée PlayCloud 10. En s’appuyant sur le framework BlackBerry Cascades, PlayCloud 10 offre une interface riche, fluide et rapide. L’application est parfaitement intégrée à l’OS ; ainsi qu’avec les autres applications installées sur la plateforme (Twitter, FaceBook, NFC, Bluetooth…)

PlayCloud 10 vient avec de nouvelles fonctionnalités et nouvelles possibilités :

• Vue Local & System
• Support des SD-Card
• Support de Dropbox
• Support de Box
• Support de Google Drive
• Support de Skydrive
• Support de SugarSync
• Support de OpenDataSpace (expérimental)
• Support de Webdav
• Support de FTP(SSL)/SFTP
• Fonction impression (Support du protocol IPP et PDF/PS)
• Recherche des fichiers
• Partage de fichiers via les réseaux sociaux
• Transferts en tâche de fond
• Choix du réseau WiFi & Mobile (Gestion du roaming)
• Informations des transferts en cours
• Notification lors de la fin d’un transfert
• Intégration des applications tierces et natives BlackBerry
• Sélection multiple
• Ouverture, copie, déplacement ou suppression
• Vue détaillées des fichiers (avec commentaires)
• Image and audio thumbnails support
• Support des images avec méta-données EXIF
• Système de cache
• Aide en ligne


PlayCloud 10 a été qualifiée au programme « Built for BlackBerry » créé à l’occasion du lancement de la nouvelle plateforme BlackBerry 10.

En plus des nouveaux services de Clouds (SugarSync, OpenDataSpace, FTP, WebDAV…), PlayCloud 10 permet également d’imprimer vos documents via le protocole IPP. Pour l’instant seuls les formats PDF / PS peuvent être imprimés. Votre imprimante doit donc supporter le protocole IPP et être postscript.

Si ce n’est pas le cas, il suffit d’installer un service d’impression sur votre ordinateur gérant l’IPP. C’est le cas de CUPS sous Mac / Linux. Vous trouverez un exemple de configuration d’une imprimante HP2550L (USB) partagée via CUPS.

Sur le dernier screenshot, j’ai utilisé l’outil « avahi-discover » pour trouver et découvrir les propriétés de mon imprimante.

    Bonjour,
    J’utilise le BlackBerry Z10 et j’ai vu votre application playcloud pour se connecter à Skydrive. Comment se fait la connexion à Skydrive ? Conservez-vous les mots de passe de tous vos clients où la connexion se fait directement via la connexion sécurisée de Microsoft et vous n’avez pas accès au mot de passe de vos clients ?
    Merci

    • Nicolas dit :

      Pour les services Box, DropBox, Skydrive et Google Drive, l’ authentification utilise OAuth. Et donc est faite par le navigateur (lancé à l’intérieur de PlayCloud.
      Ceci permet en effet d’éviter que PlayCloud est la connaissance de vos identifiants.
      Note: il existe une version gratuite si vous souhaitez tester.

    Bonjour,

    J’ai fait l’acquisition récemment d’un BlackBerry Q5.
    Je dispose d’un compte SugarSync que je souhaite installer sur mon BlackBerry. Il n’existe pas d’application à proprement dit, raison pour laquelle j’ai installé PlayCloud.

    Malheureusement je ne vois aucun moyen de synchroniser/ d’installer SugarSync via le support PlayCloud.

    Connaissez-vous la procédure ? Et si oui pouvez vous me l’indiquer ?

    Bien cordialement

    Hello,
    Will PlayCloud eventually support BlackBerry Link?

    Does Playcloud work with idrive? http://www.idrive.com/index.html Thank you.

  5. allwi dit :

    Hi, nice app and thanks for offering a trial-before-you-buy version. This always shows that the developer is believes in his app.

    I know, it’s only a minor and only aesthetic thing but – can you change the folder icons to monochrome? Although it’s built-for-BB10, the icons make it look like a cheap Android port :(
    Maybe a small ‘use monochrome’ switch in the settings?

    Cheers

      Hi,

      I think that soon I launch a call to find a designer because I haven’t got really the time to work about the UI. Prefer to work about the features.

  6. Bootsy Whitelaw dit :

    Hi,

    again: nice app…I bought it after testing the trial.
    Can you please explain what « bookmarks » mean? Can I bookmark a certain folder on my ftp server so I don’t have to click through lots of folders and subfolders?

    Regards
    Bootsy

    • Nicolas dit :

      Hi,

      Indeed, with bookmarks feature, you can flag a folder item as a bookmark ; then open directly from the bookmark list.

      To add bookmark, just long tap on the folder item, then « create bookmark ».

      Warning, to open a bookmark, the cloud service needs to be connected (if you have disabled auto-connect feature)

      In the next release, you will be able to edit bookmarks and more.

      Nicolas

      • Bootsy Whitelaw dit :

        Hi Nicolas,

        thanks for your respond.

        When I long tap the folder item I get the options
        - rename
        - open with…
        - copy to…
        - move to…
        - select more
        - delete

        No option to bookmark anything on my Q10.

        Regards
        Bootsy

        • Nicolas dit :

          You should have an item with 3 dots in the context menu.

          You can open in large the memu (swipe to the left)

          rename, open with, copy to, move to, print, share, add bookmark, info, select more, delete

          Nicolas

          • Bootsy Whitelaw dit :

            Thanks a lot! With the option « one tap to open folder » it is rather intricate to open the large menu: first you have to tap folder – hold – swipe to top left so the folder is highlighted. Only then you can open the large menu.
            I switched to « double tap to open folder » so I can highlight a folder by just tapping it.

  7. S.K. dit :

    Hello,
    What is the difference between the free and paid versions of PlayCloud?

  8. Wendell dit :

    1. Request ability to add following Cloud services in future updates, if possible:

    Onedrive (I’ve read Skydrive is now Onedrive, but will not allow connection to Onedrive nevertheless)
    Mega

    2. Ability to switch views (from icon to list, etc.)

    Thank you for the app and support.

    • Nicolas dit :

      Hi,

      Microsoft hasn’t modified API to access to OneDrive Cloud service. So PlayCloud is already compliant with this service.

      In the next release, I’m going to rename service and update icons.

    hi, i just bought full version of app on blackberry z10. i have no idea how to configure my google drive account with app. am i missing something? it only recognizes files/folder on microSD and interal hard drive.

    • Nicolas dit :

      Just swipe down from the top of screen

      Then settings and accounts. 

      Follow all the steps to register your Google drive account an don’t forget to enable the view and set your network preference. 

  10. Pranav dit :

    I was able to configure my Google Drive account on my Z10. I can view and download all my files on Google Drive.
    However I don’t know, how can I edit a downloaded file from Google Drive, and then save it back to Google Drive. Is it even possible using PlayCloud?

    • Nicolas dit :

      Hi,

      As you want to edit a document and save in the cloud, just use the « Open with… » feature (don’t use copy).

      As the file is well downloaded, you can open it with your editor. Now save the document from the editor, then come back in PlayCloud application.

      In the transfer panel you should see your opened document with a warning : document has been modified.

      Just long press on the item, then select « save ».

      This feature doesn’t work for Google Doc file. Indeed Google Doc file can only be edited from a Web browser and unfortunately it doesn’t work with the BlackBerry Web browser.

      Nicola

      • Pranav dit :

        I thought as such.
        The app is a brilliant one, giving cloud services for multiple accounts at once. And also USB-OTG if I am not mistaken.
        Pity that files could not be saved on Google Drive, as that was the most important feature I was looking out for. Any chances for it to work in the future?

        • Nicolas dit :

          In the future, it depends on Google itself, their API doesn’t support it. That’s why I don’t use Google Doc for my documents. I use only Google Doc to convert.

          Nicolas

          • XhobTheUltraLamp dit :

            If you do wish to modify Google docs using your BB10, it is sort of possible, first, access the desired through a computer, then select the document/s you wish to edit, download them as a Word Document (which BB10 supports), then re-upload them to Google drive, next download them from Playcloud, edit them using your phone, then re-upload to Google drive using Playcloud. then to re-edit them in Google drive with a supported device simply reconvert them back to Google docs. Slightly tedious process, but it does work.

  11. Don dit :

    Great app and very convenient to have a consolidated cloud storage solution. But I’m having trouble seeing Google Drive files that are shared with me. I can easily see and download my own created files but none that others create and share. Is this possible… can you explain? Thanks

    • Nicolas dit :

      Thank you very much.
      You can read and download files shared with you.
      As you are in the Google drive view, just click on the 3 dots in the bottom menu ; in the menu you should find the item « shared with me ».
      You can copy in local or open the files.

        Hi,

        I having an issue now with Google Drive. When I try to register the account it says there is a problem with my cookies settings. I have cookies enabled on my browser and followed the instructions but it still won’t register the account. This didn’t happen before as I was able to connect to Google drive in the past with PlayCloud. Please help.

  12. Lukas dit :

    Hey there,

    my question is – does it support sort of autosync when using a webdav remote folder? i’m using a synology diskstation, and they also publish an android app which lets you browse your local folders and the diskstation folders. it works fine, but you can’t sync folders automatically. there is a special android app for it, which doesn’t work on bb 10. if there is any possibility to sync folders or subfolders automatically, i’ll download it today.

    thank you in advance

  13. Marc dit :

    I have a home network Levovo StorCenter. It has the ability to turn on FTP, sFTP and WebDAV. How to I set up play cloud so that I can see those files. I don’t understand what is supposed to in the domain portion of the address. Is it the ipaddress? If not what then and how do I determine that on the NAS? Thank you.

    • Nicolas dit :

      To add an account. Just swipe down from the top of screen, then in settings – account section, add a new account. For FTP,FTP-SSL or SFTP, it’s the same type of account. In the host field, don’t forget to write the uri scheme. Host can be a domain or an IP address.
      About WebDAV, the uri is a http:// or https:// URI with IP and often a pathname.

      Uri is given by the server.

      • marc dit :

        Can you give me an example of how it would work with a dummy type url. I have tried with the ip address but it does not seem to work…

        • Nicolas dit :

          For ftp:
          ftp://192.168.1.1
          For SFTP:
          sftp://192.168.1.1
          For WebDAV:
          https://192.168.1.1/remote.php/webdav/

          How to connect from your desktop comptuer ?

          Warning, if your storage server is accessible only on your local network. Your mobile phone needs to be connected in WiFi in your network.
          If your server is available from Internet (you have done a network redirection on your Internet modem), you can connect from the GSM network in using your Internet public address.

    Hello,

    I am considering purchasing this app and was wondering about the folder sync ability. Can I select my Camera folder on my phone, sync it to a folder on one of my cloud services and then as soon as I take a new picture with the camera app have it uploaded to the cloud?

    Thanks,
    John

    • Nicolas dit :

      This feature is planned for the next release.

      • johnt dit :

        Thanks for your reply. Are upgrades free when I purchase the app now? Also when is the next release with this feature due to come out?

        Thanks,
        John

        • Nicolas dit :

          All updates are free. But if you wait before to buy th app, the price can change ;)

          • johnt dit :

            Hi Nicolas,

            I have now purchased the app. Overall I am satisfied however I have not been able to find a way to select multiple files and instead need to select and move on file at a time between my device and my cloud services. I have checked the settings menu as well as every other place I can think of with no success. Can you share details of how to do this?

            Thanks,
            John

          • Nicolas dit :

            Hi, thx for your contributions.
            So to select multiple files, just long press on an item file, then in the context menu select « multi select » or « select all ».

  15. johnt dit :

    Thanks for your help!! I just neglected to scroll up in that context menu and din’t realize those 2 additional entries were available.

    I am looking for forward to the future release with folder sync functionality!

    Thanks,
    John

    Hi,

    I’m having issues registering Dropbox on Q10 in Playcloud. I press « register », then « allow ». My browser opens to the API Request Authorization – Sign in page. I enter my login information, but the « sign in » button will not submit.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    • Nicolas dit :

      As you are in this page. You aren’t in the PlayCloud context but in the BlackBerry web browser. You can try to reboot your device.
      As registration will be completed, the allow button shows « connect » and finally you will be able to enable the cloud view.
      Don’t forget to set your network preferences, thumbnail behavior…

  17. Costa dit :

    Hi, thanks for a great app. The google drive access, particularly the ability to share files from there saved my son from switching to a iPhone. I could not see an option for email anywhere on this blog, so could I make some suggestions for the app here?

    - in the bottom L corner where we select the cloud service, device, SD card, etc., please allow for rearranging the services. For example, I would like to see google drive right at the top of the list, so that when I open the app I see the google drive icon right away and I am in google drive.

    - to simplify uploading, please put an « upload » option in the right context menu. Then allow to browse for file. I realize you use the native BlackBerry move method. This is good and it could stay, but I think the other option would be simpler and faster.

    - now here’s the big one: shortcuts on the Blackberry screen for whatever drive we want. So when we have registered and setup our drives of choice in Playcloud we can then have the option of creating a shortcut icon on the home screen for the drives we might choose. This way I would have e.g. the google drive shortcut with the image on my home screen and tapping it would take me directly into google drive in Playcloud. It would look like we have google drive natively on the BlackBerry. I think that would be a killer feature imho.

    Take care and best wishes.

    • Nicolas dit :

      Hi
      Thank you very much for your message.
      You can contact me via BBM Channel support for PlayCloud.
      Re-arranging your storage space will be supported with 10.3.1 OS release.
      I add your suggestion about shortcuts on the home screen.
