SugarSync for Android Automatically Sends Your Photos to the Cloud



Now that we are using our phones as cameras more often, we are beginning to amass a collection of photos on these highly mobile devices. Many users will upload a photo or two to Facebook, but not as many will back up their photos to their computer by connecting their phone with a USB cable. Enter the latest SugarSync Android app which has a built in AutoSync feature that automatically syncs photos and specific folders to Sugar Sync so that your memories are always backed up.

We really like the SugarSync app because you use the standard Android camera app, don’t need to take any actions and there are no wires involved. There’s no need to change your behavior or switch to a different app, just point, shoot and Sugarsync.

You can also use the folder autosync feature to keep a folder of documents in sync between your phone or tablet and you computer. Thanks to two-way sync, your files will always be up to date, no matter what device you are using.

As you can see in the settings menu above, you can set sync to run based on the conditions you want so that you don’t drain your battery, or blow through a metered data plan while you are on the road.

Users will also appreciate the fact that you don’t have to open the SugarSync app to start the upload process. SugarSync looks for changes based on a timeframe you choose and will automatically back up your photos at that time without any further action.

You can get the SugarSync App for free in the Android market and signup for a free 5GB SugarSync account to take advantage of the photo syncing.

    Good review – here are a few recent changes as of June 2011:
    You get 5GB of space with the FREE version, but now there is no restriction to the number of computers you can sync/backup (up from 2).
    It gives you the ability to upload and sync any folder on your computer.
    It is the only service that offers such a broad device and OS support with apps for BlackBerry, Android, iPhone/iPad, Symbian, not to mention your computer!

    Also if you use the below referral code you get a bonus 500MB extra on top of your Free 5GB!

    Hope it helps someone.
