  1. Does anybody have any idea why you cannot view Samba shares from a playbook app. There is so much effort in supporting online synch services, why not plain old samba? I just want to get at the files on my home server.

  2. Downloading it right now!

  3. There are lots of options with files n folders but frankly the file manager called “Stuff” is way better designed. It does Dropbox as well and has one of the best UIs of any PlayBook app.
