Files - Network File Shares

A feature that should be added (I don't think it exists) is like on my Torch I have the files area where I can get into my network file shares. It would be a HUGE plus for this device if through the bridge I could get to these shares and open things from my "z drive" on my network. With this in place, it instantly becomes a great corporate device.

Re: Files - Network File Shares

do I understand your inquiry?
you would like to be able, from your PlayBook, to access files on the Wi-Fi network?

Re: Files - Network File Shares

I do not know if your inquiry is possible.

ON the other hand I have been able to see the harddrive of the PlayBook as a mounted network drive on my Windows Installation. This is what I do to move files to and from the PlayBook.

You can also consider using a DropBox tool like "Files & Folders" or like BlueBox, both are available on the AppWorld.

Re: Files - Network File Shares

I can do it from my Torch, but not on my playbook. Still at this point, I am better off using my Torch over my playbook. Getting quite disappointing.

Re: Files - Network File Shares

Applications --> Files

You can add network shares in there.
