Sending Photos from Blackberry 9320 to Blackberry Playbook

Good afternoon,

I wonder if someone could assist me in my plight?

I have previously submitted this thread however to the wrong section! (Blackberry Curve.) thus the reason behind the duplication as I had no response.

My wife has the above two items which she has bridged together, sadly there appears to be no option to send photographs taken by the phones camera to the playbook. Is this possible and if so could you please advise?

(I know I can download the pictures to my laptop from the mobile then connect the BB Playbook to the laptop to put them on the Playbook and that I can view the photos on the Playbook when bridged, but can see no option to download them to the playbook)

I have considered as a last option uploading to my cloud storage from the phone then re downloading to the Playbook, but ideally it would be easier just to 'send' the pictures from the phone to the Playbook.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Regards.

Re: Sending Photos from Blackberry 9320 to Blackberry Playbook

There are a number of ways, but they are all 'workarounds' - there's no straight answer.

I can recommend an App called 'Files and Folders'. It costs a couple of £, but it allows you to access files on your BlackBerry while bridged, and copy them over to your PlayBook.

Alternatively, the easiest way is to just plug both your PlayBook and BlackBerry into a PC and copy the files over that way.

Re: Sending Photos from Blackberry 9320 to Blackberry Playbook

Thank you for your prompt reply and suggestions

 

I thought this may have been a difficult task when the option did not appear when we bridged the two devices.

 

Our intention was to take the playbook and bb phone on holiday, take pictures on the phone then store them on the bb playbook. (When we went on holiday in July we carried the playbook around with us and took photos with the same, obviously carrying a phone is much easier.)

 

I have just taken a picture and sent it to my cloud storage then went online with the playbook and downloaded the same which appears to work fine.

 

I feel for the odd picture this may work fine however, for bulk I agree with yourself and the laptop connection could be the best choice.

 

I'll have a look at the suggested app and see if this is an additional option.

 

Thank you very much for your input.

 

Regards.

No worries.

Files and Folders has a 3 day trial - so it's worth having a play with.

But bear in mind - copying a lot of files over Bluetooth is slooooooooooooooooow anyway, so probably wouldn't be the most ideal method by any stretch for a large number of photos.

Enjoy your holiday! :smileyhappy:

Thank you, I checked the BlackBerry App World and viewed your suggestion. It does as you say give an option to buy and a second to try. My wife is currently Facebooking at the moment, but once free I'll try it out.

Re: Sending Photos from Blackberry 9320 to Blackberry Playbook

Files & Folders can do that for most BB users, as long as you're not on BES. It also has a handy thumbnail view, and can copy multiple files. Take the trial version for a spin to see how it works for you.

Re: Sending Photos from Blackberry 9320 to Blackberry Playbook

Thank you for all your replies.

I have tried the software suggested on the three day trial however, for our personal use as shown above it maybe not for us at this time.

For the odd photo we can send to our cloud storage then download to the Playbook as and when we like. For any larger amount connecting to the laptop on our arrival home seems the best choice. (When on holiday)

Thank you for making us aware of this app as it maybe something when our skills/needs require in the future.
