SugarSync updates Android app with enhanced sharing and mobile file management

Summary:SugarSync was recently rated the top cloud solution in several reviews and this latest Android update helps them get even better. Sign up and use their free 5GB account now.

Last month SugarSync provided video auto upload functionality for Android devices and today we see yet another major Android update that includes enhanced sharing, file and folder management, and opportunities to earn more free storage. I just renewed my 30GB yearly plan and am using SugarSync more and more on my Galaxy Nexus now.

As detailed in their press release the following new features are provided in the Android app:

  • Enhanced Sharing: SugarSync has always enabled you to share with your contacts, and now you can also share files or entire folders from the app directly with your friends and family on services like Facebook and Twitter. You can now easily share that large folder of videos from your vacation to all your Facebook friends and Twitter followers. Or send those photos to your email contacts. You can even SMS files or entire folders to anyone in your address book. Sharing what you want, how you want, where you want has never been easier.
  • Managing Files and Folders on the Go: You’re used to being able to organize and manage your files and folders on your computer. Why not on the go? SugarSync for Android now lets you copy, move and even delete files or folders, making the mobile app experience more similar to that of the desktop or Web client experience. It’s like having a remote control for your computers via the Cloud.
  • Easily Earn More Free Storage: On SugarSync.com, we’ve always made it easy to get more free storage by referring friends. Today we’re making it just as easy to earn free storage from the Android app. Just tap the present button on the top right section of the app’s home screen and choose where to share your referral link: Facebook, Twitter, email, SMS, or more. For each friend who joins SugarSync for free, you both get 500MB of additional free storage on top of the 5GB we start you with. And for friends that use your referral link to sign up for a paid account, you both get an additional 10GB free!

In addition to these new major features, this updated version provides quick actions, ability to rename your Android device, and full ICS support.

As I mentioned before I use SugarSync because they have mobile clients for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and Symbian. I just need them to get a Windows Phone app to be completely satisfied. There are clients for Windows and Mac computers as well. Check out their recent blog post linking to recent reviews rating SugarSync as the best in a growing cloud service market.
