SugarSync gives iPad users document editing & syncing

SugarSync has recently announced the second version of their iPad app, and this one brings document editing as well as syncing. And at the same time they did wonders to work around the fact that Apple does not offer access to the file system in terms of working with documents. Anyway, the SugarSync app was and remains a free download. The service on the other hand will vary in price depending on the plan you choose. They range from free for 2GB of storage space all the way up to 250GB of storage space for $24.99 a month. But getting back to this most recent update, the app will now allow iPad users to open up a document (with either Pages, Numbers or Keynote), then edit that document and re-save it to the cloud. As a fairly long time SugarSync user this change just becomes another reason that I remain a user. Of course, this also gives me a reason to purchase Pages and/or Numbers as well. Keep reading to see how it works and hit the read link below to check out SugarSync.

How it works:
1. Via the SugarSync for iPad app, browse and view files from all computers already synced to the SugarSync cloud.
2. To edit a document (for example), click “Open in Pages” at the top of the screen (an appropriate document editor, e.g., Pages, Numbers or Keynote, must be installed).
3. In Pages (or other document editor), edit as desired and save the file to the iPad’s local storage.
4. Sync the file directly back to a SugarSync cloud account and remote computers via SugarSync’s Upload by Email. (Updated files are found in a dedicated SugarSync folder).

    Good review – there are a few recent changes though:

    You get 5GB of space with the FREE version, but now there is no restriction to the number of computers you can sync/backup (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 iPhone/iPad, Android, Blackberry, Symbian and WinMo.
    On the Free version the upload/download is faster than when reviewed :)

    Also if you use the below referral code you get 500MB extra on top of the Free 5GB or 10GB extra on any of the paid-for services!

    Things are moving fast with cloud storage providers. If you use the following link to sign up for Sugarsync, you now get 5.5 GB of free online storage forever: https://www.sugarsync.com/referral?rf=ejjfpyq3n6nmz

    I have been using Sugarsync for a long time now and am more than happy with their service.
