SugarSync App for iOS Adds Remote File Updating, Easy Sharing

SugarSync, a file sharing and backup service we’ve written about before, has updated its iOS app to version 2.2, and it’s a big improvement over previous versions.
Like a lot of my WWD colleagues, I’ve been a big Dropbox user. But the new version of the SugarSync app adds some unique and attractive features, including:
  • The ability to copy, move and delete files on a remote computer, and to copy files from one computer to another.
  • The ability to grab a public link to any file in your SugarSync account and email it. The recipient doesn’t need to be a SugarSync user to download the file.
  • The ability to add images from remote computers to the image gallery on your iOS device.
The SugarSync (iTunes link) is free for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; it requires iOS 3 or later. SugarSync has a free 5GB plan (as opposed to Dropbox’s 2GB), as well as personal and business plans with a variety of storage levels and numbers of users. According to the SugarSync blog, there’s an Android app update in the works. Apps are available for other platforms, and there’s a mobile website as well.
