SugarSync Launches AutoSync Backup for Androids

Online file backup provider SugarSync on April 25 launched a rebuilt application for Android devices that features SugarSync's primary market differentiator, AutoSync.

AutoSync synchronizes files and folders between any combination of Macs, Windows PCs, iOS and Android smartphones, and iPads-with all files backed up to the SugarSync cloud. All data is then instantly available from the SugarSync iPad application from any device, with no tethering or cables required.

"More users are using their smartphones as their primary device for capturing photos and videos on the go," said SugarSync CEO Laura Yecies. "As a result, their mobile devices are getting bogged down with tons of mobile photos, because the process for moving these photos from their devices to their computers is so difficult and time consuming that they simply don't do it on a regular basis.

"With our new AutoSync, you can simply take a picture or edit a file, and SugarSync takes care of the rest. Photos, videos, files and folders are all automatically synced to the cloud and to your other devices."

SugarSync offers 5GB of cloud storage for its free of charge accounts. For 30GB, users are charged $4.99 per month, 60GB is $9.99 per month, 100GB is $14.99 per month, and 250GB is $24.99 per month. It's all backed up on multiple servers.

SugarSync recently added the PayPal pay option. PayPal now is available in 190 countries and in 24 currencies.
