CloudMesh's big update includes background sync


Very cool app, am in the process of getting rid of my old ISP email Microsoft account so will use this to migrate the data from my old Skydrive to my new one.

Ever since WP8 you can do background downloads/uploads. On WP 8.1 things just got a little easier to do ;)

"Background" syncing is kind of deceptive here.  Actually, you must have the app open for it to sync.

What I really want is true background syncing, where files stay up-to-date automatically...without us having to open the app.  With that, I could rush off to the airport in the morning and have the satisfaction of knowing my files are on my phone.

How often should it check?  Let us choose: 10 min, 30 min, hourly, daily, weekly!

We are working on that, but first we need to test the system and check how users are using the sync capability.

Still the downloads are made in background but for now you have to open the app to start them.
