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).
