AutoSync We’ve covered the could magic of SugarSync before. This service backs up your files and folders to the cloud whether you’re using a computer or mobile device. Today, SugarSync updated its Android application to version 3.2 that brings the AutoSync feature to photos and folders. When these features are enabled, every photo you take, or folder you alter will be uploaded to the cloud automatically and shared across your devices.

The AutoSync feature is also customizable. You can choose the conditions under which SugarSync will start the uploading process. For example uploading intervals range from every hour to every 24 hours. You can also make AutoSync wait until you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network or external power source before syncing. This ensures your battery isn’t constantly being drained. If you’re going offline, you can also download content from your cloud onto your device.

I tried out AutoSync and it really does work. Seconds after taking a photo, SugarSync uploaded it to the cloud and it was then instantly available on my computer and iPod Touch (through the iOS app). SugarSync is free to use and comes with 5GB of initial storage.

    As a tech enthusiast, I've specified SugarSync for a while now for friends and clients as I love some of the great functions. I always use multiple backup methods and primarily use SugarSync as my redundant backup/instant access cloud device. It offers more free storage out of the box (versus Dropbox) and the integration across mobile devices is second to none. The functionality is top notch and I found that you can get a bonus of 500MB storage through this link – for a total of free 5.5GB Online Storage.

    Good review – there 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.

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

    Hope it helps someone.
