Although many of us are now hardcore SkyDrive users, some people still rely on or need Sugar Sync (www.sugarsync.com) for their file sharing and storing needs. And while Sugar Sync is working on a Windows Phone client, we have no ETA on when that app will arrive. So it's with great pleasure for us to see Sweet Sync on the Marketplace fulfilling that role.
The client offers most of what you would expect a mobile Sugar Sync client to offer:
- Allows the creation, modification and deletion of any file or folder in your account, including received shares
- Upload, Download and View Images
- Create public links for your files and share them with friends
- Open documents with public links directly on your phone (Not all filetypes can be opened)
We just took the app for a spin and it's hella-nice. Bold graphics (which are not Metro but still look nice), ease of use, plenty of options. Heck, we're impressed with it and while it may not replace our SkyDrive, we're not against adding extra storage when and where we can either.
Sugar Sync fetches for a fair $1.29 with a limited trial (read-only access). Our recommendation: if you use Sugar Sync, give it a shot. Even if the official app comes out, we tend to go with third-party devs for better support and more functionality. But that's us.
Pick up Sweet Sync here in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
