We stumbled on an app that could quite possibly be the best iPad cloud sync app that we have seen. It offers an incredible set of features that are sure to protect all your most important information as well as keep you in sync.
Best iPad Cloud Sync App
What does cloud sync actually mean and why would you use it? The cloud, of course, is the Internet and syncing all of your information to storage on the Internet that can be accessed from any device is what cloud syncing is all about. This means that you can have all your information kept safe, backed up, and accessible from your iPad, mobile phone, desktop, laptop or just through a web page. Best of all, everything is kept in sync no matter what device you use to access it.
One example of an iPad cloud app is Dropbox. With Dropbox you get 2GB of Internet storage (free) and you can then buy more as you need it. Dropbox gives you a place to put you files, videos, photos, and music that you can then access from the official Dropbox app or through many popular apps such as Docs To Go.
But we found something even better. We found an iPad cloud sync service called SugarSync. And this does things that Dropbox simply cannot do right now.
SugarSync. The Best iPad Cloud Sync Solution
SugarSync is a way to access all your files from just about anywhere and using any device. SugarSync’s online backup, file sync, and sharing service makes it easy to stay connected. With SugarSync you get secure cloud storage for all your files — documents, music, photos, and videos.
With Dropbox, you have to remember to place your files there or you won’t have them if you need access to them. Using SugarSync, you simply designate folders that you want to “sync” to the cloud and it keeps everything in sync anytime you make changes. This is the way cloud storage should be done and especially if you are using your iPad for buisness or for school.
Features You Get With SugarSync
SugarSync for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch includes:
- Anytime, anywhere access to all files, photos and music
- Instantly share remotely-stored files from your iPad with friends and colleagues
- Stream a music library from any computer (save valuable local storage space for favorites)
- Sync photos taken with your iPhone or created on your iPod or iPad back to all your devices
SugarSync for iPad also includes:
- Open cloud-synced files in a local document editor for editing and local saving.
- With SugarSync’s Upload by Email, files can be re-synced to all of your other computers via the cloud.
SugarSync is the best iPad cloud sync app I have seen. The features are perfect for anyone looking to not only get the most out of their iPad but get the most out of using it for business or school. I have been using it since discovering it and I am it is my opinion that it not only trumps Dropbox but it is a must have for every iPad user that wants the massive benefits of keeping their data synced up and safe.
They have a free option you can use and they also have paid monthly plans starting at $4.99/month for 30 GB of storage. This is a very generous amount of storage for the price and well worth it when you see how it works.
