BT Cloud on Android

Where is the BT Cloud synced folder on an Android (Kit-Kat 4.4.2)?

 

I loaded the BT Cloud app onto my Sansung Galaxcy S4, but it took a long time to log in. I just had to put the phone down a do something else while it located my account. It now seems to work.

 

Now I would like to include BT Cloud on the list of sites I can access through Astro file manager with Cloud. It can log into Dropbox and Skydrive (which I am not using), but not BT Cloud.

Re: BT Cloud on Android

Hi DJFulford48,

 

Welcome and thanks for posting. The Sync folder is not displayed separately as a ‘local’ folder as it is on PC/Desktop, but it’s simply accessible through the app by clicking on BT Cloud Sync in the left hand menu. 

 

Cheers

 

David

That's all very well if all you want to do is view the file on your phone. What I don't understand is how it works if you want to use your Android device to edit a shared file.

 

For example, I have several Word documents containing works in progress. When I edit a document on my PC, all I have to do is save the edited version to the Sync folder in order to be able to view the latest edited version on my Android phone.

 

How do I do it the other way round, though? Suppose I edit the document on my phone (yes, I really do write books on my phone!). Where do I instruct my Android-based word processor to save the revised file so that the cloud version gets updated so that I can subsequently access it on my PC? I tried doing a straight "save" (as opposed to "save as") but the updated version doesn't get copied to the cloud.

 

The only way I have found is to keep deleting the document from the cloud and then re-adding it. That's clunky, a real hassle, and cannot surely be the design intent.

 

Kind regards
