SugarSync has upgraded its cloud-based backup service for Android devices, claiming that the new application offers the fastest and easiest way to synchronise files between Android devices and computers.
The online file backup system now incorporates SugarSync's AutoSync technology, which automatically synchronises entire folders and multimedia such as photos from Android devices to desktops or laptops.
SugarSync claimed that one of the main benefits is that business users can work on documents while they are offline.
"A classic example of this would be a user about to board an airplane with no Wi-Fi. Before boarding the plane, the user can select the folders they need access to while offline, use SugarSync to sync those files locally to the device, and then work on those files throughout the flight," the firm said.
"With AutoSync, SugarSync now automatically recognises when your device is connected again and will automatically sync your folders so that they reflect any changed files. No thinking, and no wires required."
SugarSync users can define how often the AutoSync feature works. The app can also help to boost productivity as users do not have to email files to themselves and data is retrievable even if devices are lost or stolen, SugarSync added.
The SugarSync for Android app is available now for free and can be downloaded online or through the Android Market.
SugarSync offers a free 5GB version of the full service, with paid plans starting at $4.99 per month for 30GB.
