In my Android app I create a png and csv file and attach them to an email. When I try this on the Playbook the email is created successfully however the attachments are not added. I'm guessing its something to do with the directory where I'm storing the attachments and permissions, etc.
Any suggestions on what I may need to change to add the attachments?

Ive tried a number of things - html vs plain text mail, changing file locations, etc, etc. I can't get this to work.
Wherever I store the .png file it does appear in the 'pictures' section when you manually hit the attachment button from the email client. So I just put some extra text in the body of the email telling the user to do that - unfortunately the file browser doesn't show the file name so they won't know which one to pick... Oh well.
My biggest problem is that the file browser doesn't show the .csv files at all. I renamed it to .xls manually and it appeared right away. So, near as I can tell, there's no way to attach a csv file automatically or manually.
For now I've just put an entry in the FAQ in my app to explain how people can access them files through the connection to the computer. I also have backup to dropbox functionality (which is REALLY easy to implement by the way) to they can use that too.
If anyone has other ideas to try I would love to hear them.

I have the same issue. I think I'm going to have to hold off on porting my Android app. There are currently too many issues like this. So 'almost there'. Frustrating.
