FolderSync is a application that enables simple sync to cloud based storage to and from local folders on the device memory card. It currently support multiple OneDrive,, Dropbox, Dump Truck, SugarSync, Bitcasa, Ubuntu One,, LiveDrive, HiDrive, Google Docs, NetDocuments, Amazon S3, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV or windows share (Samba/CIFS) accounts, and support for more platforms are planned. Read-only access to protected file-system also supported - requires root.

Effortlessly sync your files. Backup your music, pictures and other important files from the phone to your cloud storage or the other way around. It has never been easier. Tasker / locale support enables fine grained control of your syncs.

FolderSync also contains a full file manager, that enables you to manage your files locally and in the cloud. Copy, move and delete your files in your cloud/remote accounts. Support for creation/deletion of buckets in Amazon S3. Upload and download files from the phone. It's all supported.

There is also a lite version, so you can test functionality before you buy. The lite version only allows two accounts and has no sync filters or Tasker support.

    The first day I added new users to my FTP Server on one of my Windows boxes at home. I gave the users access to one and only one folder (+subfolders) each The root folder on the PC itself is: Z:\Android\Backups\Nexus7(2013)\Sync\ The Accounts are Chris, TitaniumBackup, & Device-Storage. So I added the FTP accounts, 2 for each (1 using my LAN IP for when I'm home and one using my WAN IP for when

    Easy to use, regular updates, support for many cloud services, easily the best syncing app available for Android!

    Easy to use and I love the feature to only sync over certain networks. It does force close occasionally on me and doesn't seem to like semi-colons in filenames but overall this is a great app!!!

    Great app with lots of customisable sync features. I use it to backup my mobile devices to my NAS. It recognises when connected to my home LAN and backs everything up automatically. Great stuff!

    Paired with Titanium, this tool is essential to protecting my music, photos, ebooks and game status by synching to a home Window 7 pc. A recent android upgrade was recovered by having this in-home, off-device backups. Thanks, chaps!
