SugarSync is one of our favorite cloud storage tools for a number of reasons, and this week the Android app got even better thanks to new features.
The new Android app for SugarSync now makes it easier to share ile and folders, adds the ability to manage your files and includes referral links so you can earn free storage faster.
SugarSync is a cloud storage service that offers 5GB of free storage for all users. Unlike the competition, if you share a folder, it doesn’t count against the recipient’s storage quota. You can read our review of SugarSync here. If you need more storage, you can buy it starting at $4.99 a month for 30GB, all the way up to 1TB of storage.
If you work on the go, SugarSync makes it simple to keep the most recent file with you at all times, no matter what device you have. The new SugarSync features will make collaboration and sharing easier for SugarSync users. Check out the new SugarSync for Android features below.
- Enhanced Sharing – SugarSync has always enabled you to share with your contacts, and now you can also share files or entire folders from the app directly with your friends and family on services like Facebook and Twitter. You can now easily share that large folder of videos from your vacation to all your Facebook friends and Twitter followers. Or send those photos to your email contacts. You can even SMS files or entire folders to anyone in your address book. Sharing what you want, how you want, where you want has never been easier.
- Managing Files and Folders on the Go – You’re used to being able to organize and manage your files and folders on your computer. Why not on the go? SugarSync for Android now lets you copy, move and even delete files or folders, making the mobile app experience more similar to that of the desktop or Web client experience. It’s like having a remote control for your computers via the Cloud.
- Easily Earn More Free Storage – On SugarSync.com, we’ve always made it easy to get more free storage by referring friends. Today we’re making it just as easy to earn free storage from the Android app. Just tap the present button on the top right section of the app’s home screen and choose where to share your referral link: Facebook, Twitter, email, SMS, or more. For each friend who joins SugarSync for free, you both get 500MB of additional free storage on top of the 5GB we start you with. And for friends that use your referral link to sign up for a paid account, you both get an additional 10GB free!
SugarSync offers apps for the iPhone, Mac and Windows to keep your files in sync, and simplify sharing. You can sync select folders to specific devices, so that you won’t fill up your netbook or MacBook Air hard drive with every file you upload to SugarSync.
