San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2008
Sharpcast today released SugarSync for iPhone, the first-ever commercial application featuring push synchronization of files and media between PCs, Macs, iPhones and iPod Touches, and the web. SugarSync transparently synchronizes files on any number of computers and backs them up into a secure online digital vault that is accessible through the SugarSync desktop software, any computer or mobile web browser, and the new SugarSync for iPhone application as well as applications customized for Windows Mobile and BlackBerry smartphones. iPhone users now have a fast, wireless and completely automatic way to view and share their files and media on the go, even if the computers where those reside are offline.
SugarSync for iPhone uses Sharpcast's powerful push synchronization technology to quickly access files over the air. SugarSync works seamlessly across multiple computers so people can easily navigate to any of their devices to view Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files, as well as photos. The files are synced to the iPhone over the air on demand, and stored in a temporary cache whose memory size is maintained automatically so that files viewed on the go use minimal memory on the iPhone.
Sharing any number of files from SugarSync for iPhone is fast and intuitive, even for large media files or presentations that are too large to send through standard email. Simply selecting any file will present the option to share the file. Because all the sharing is mediated online, files do not need to be transferred to and from the device -- the iPhone or iPod Touch simply acts as a remote control to send files over the web.
SugarSync is available for free trial at http://www.sugarsync.com, and subscription plans start as low as $25 annually for 10GB of synchronized online storage, sufficient for about 10,000 documents. The SugarSync for iPhone application is free with all SugarSync subscriptions.
New SugarSync Features:
Sharpcast also introduced several new features to the core SugarSync product today which are available free with all subscriptions:
- A new intuitive one-click file versioning feature that allows people to revert to any of the five latest versions of a file.
- A new home page for SugarSync personal websites that includes a feed of all recent account activity, enabling quick access to the most recently modified and shared files as well as a quick-launch to any synchronized computer
- Overall performance improvements and interface enhancements including a simpler means of restoring deleted files
- Enhanced native look and feel for the Mac beta version of SugarSync Manager
Built on the company's patent-pending Universal Synchronization Platform, SugarSync's powerful software-service combination gives people the easiest way to keep digital media and files automatically in sync across multiple computers, backed up online and remotely accessible from their mobile phones or through any web browser.
