The Daily App: FolderSync For Android3:00 PM EST Tue. Dec. 11, 2012
Cloud-based storage services are ubiquitous for business and personal purposes. Today's Daily App, FolderSync, is an Android exclusive that connects many of today's most popular cloud services in a single file browser.
Created by small German developer Tacit Dynamics, FolderSync is an extremely useful tool with deep syncing options and supports Amazon S3, Box.net, Dropbox, FTP, Google Drive, SkyDrive, SugarSync, Ubuntu One, Windows (Samba/CIFS) and many others. It also comes with an excellent file browser. Once accounts are added (only two are allowed in the free version), folder contents are accessible by going into the file manager, which is as feature rich as anything we've used. Files can easily be copied from one account to another and uploaded or downloaded without muss or fuss. More advanced features include creation of two-way auto-syncing folders between your device and a particular service.
The full version of FolderSync costs $2.29 on Google Play and allows an infinite number of accounts, sync filters, instant uploads and Tasker/locale support, and it gets rid of the ads that are in the free version.
Whether users are managing their phone's limited storage or want to have constant access to all of their cloud accounts at all times, any power user of multiple cloud services will be able to appreciate FolderSync's utility and ease of use.
