Today is the era of Cloud storage, where we can store and back up our files on the cloud. PlayBook owners seems to be left behind where there is only limited native apps of the cloud developed for this Blackberry Tablet. However, when we look closely, we can see that it is easy and powerful to manage all our cloud storage needs right from the PlayBook.
The Playbook can easily access any cloud storage even without native apps. I always use drop box for my main cloud storage. unfortunately until now there is no native apps from dropbox for Playbook. Luckily, BlueBox app and the Files and Folders app did a very good job and offered a wide array of choices for document management, downloading and uploading. The Files and Folders app also did a great job with Google Drive and Box.
Box supports the PlayBook with a native app. The app works great and the storage options are fine for their free account , however the limitation on the size of file uploads and downloads sometimes creating a problem. Microsoft SkyDrive offers bigger free storage compared to dropbox unfortunately they don’t have native app and no third party app until now can handle it. but you can still use the native browser in your Playbook to to access your files and read and download them from the PlayBook.
