An update is heading our way for the Sweet Sync for SugarSync app. Sugar Sync (opens in new tab) is a cloud storage option, similar to Dropbox or Skydrive, and Sweet Sync is your unofficial Windows Phone connection to the cloud service.
The update takes Sweet Sync to version 1.4 and brings background photo synchronization into the mix. When enabled the app will detect new photos on your Windows Phone and sync them upon startup.
The version 1.4 update also adds the option to sync only when your on wifi and select any sync folder in your account to sync to (or not to sync to). This is a nice data saving feature.
The update has just passed Marketplace certification so look for it to be pushed out in the next 24-48 hours. In the meantime, you can find Sweet Sync for SugarSync here at (opens in new tab) the Windows Phone Marketplace. There is a trial version with the full version of Sweet Sync for SugarSync running $1.29.

I love sugar sync for some purposes related to office docs because I work with a lot of groups that are using Office 2003 (I know....lame). I am not sure why it would be better than SkyDrive for photos though. I have the app nonetheless!
Wow that's really great , a Windows Phone connection to the cloud service. I also love sugar sync I have that app. Now I am lookin forward to work with Sweet Sync.
