Work Drives BlackBerry 10 Network Shares Work Drives BlackBerry 10 Network Shares2

If you were worried about access to network drives and shares from your BlackBerry 10 smartphone then worry no longer. BBin spotted a new Work Drives application for BlackBerry 10 in App World and its a doozie. It allows you to map MULTIPLE network drives to your BlackBerry 10 smartphone and the best part is that they show up as regular drives to the File Manager and Documents to Go apps.

Features include:

  • Mapping Network Drives -  Manage multiple network drives from your BlackBerry device
  • File Manager Integration – Access documents and manage network folders from the File Manager application
  • Document Management – Create and edit documents using BlackBerry 10 familiar applications like Documents To Go
  • Attach documents to Email from shared network drives
  • Save attachments directly from Email to a shared network drive

You can actually check it out now in App World if you have a compatible BB10 device. BlackBerry 10 just keeps on getting better every day!

  1. now this is really cool, totally digging this

  2. The future’s so bright I gotta wear shades…

  3. Offline files?

    • I don’t think any platform other than Windows does that and it does it badly

      • No other core mobile OS does this natively. There are applications on both android and on iOS that does this – although severely convoluted on iOS (click click home press & hold arrgh). However these require a VPN connection (either through Cisco or another app running as a service, or lame IPSec connection via Settings > VPN on both platforms).

        Actually if enabled on the BES this IS ACTUALLY capable on BB5 onward. Its not easy to get right and there is a document on blackberry.com/btsc specifying this.

        However NO other mobile OS does this without the need to authenticate your applications because this is done via BES behind the firewall!

  4. Not installable on the delv alpha… that’s lame.
