G10+

The G10+ mobile application for BlackBerry10 provides authorized access to your Google+, Google Drive, People and Google Photos accounts. Permission is needed before access to user information is guaranteed.

G10+ uses the federated access mechanism, OAuth 2.0 to obtain access to your Google+ profile, Drive and Photo account and therefore requires that you authorize the app first before you can use the app.

After authorization, the Google servers (API) will grant the app access and refresh tokens which will be used to obtain access to your information. The access token, provides short-lived access and must be refreshed by exchanging the refresh token to get a new access token, therefore, when you re-launch the app, a toast pops up that read “Re-authorize app to obtain access”, it means that:

  • Either the access token has expired, which the installed OAuth 2.0 library will automatically exchange for a new one and the you can refresh the app for details by clicking the refresh button which can be found by the rightmost side of the Action Bar or pressing the key ‘r’ if you use the BlackBerry 10 physical keyboard device,
  • Or, the refresh token has also expired, which will require that you authorize the app by swiping down from the top of the app, click the settings button and click the re-authorize / un-authorize button,
  • Or, you have not authorized the app at all.

Consequentially, in order to use the app after it has been re-launched, press the refresh button on the rightmost side of the Action Bar or press key ‘r’ if you use the BlackBerry 10 physical keyboard device.
