The best wifi sync app for Android is finally here!

Wirelessly transfer photos, videos, music, and documents between your Android devices and computers, such as desktops, servers, NAS, or remote access accounts.
• Convenient and intuitive interface -- a single tap on your device starts the sync, without the need to physically access the computer.
• Fast and smart transfer -- only those newly created or modified files will be transferred. For a partially modified file, only the modified portion is sent over the network.
• State-of-the-art encryption – all network connection are protected against attacks even over insecure networks.
• File corruption never happens – file transmission is verified by MD5 checksums.

More amazingly, Acrosync does not require installation of proprietary server software. This is because Acrosync implements rsync, a mature open-source file sync protocol available on all platforms. By leveraging rsync, Acrosync can magically turn any computer into a file sync server without extra installation.

Requirements on the computers that Acrosync connects to:
• Linux computers must be accessible via ssh.
• Mac computers must have Remote Login enabled.
• For Windows computers, openssh and rsync must be installed, both of which are freely available as independent packages, or as part of cygwin.

Advanced features, such as public-key login, file exclusion/inclusion by pattern, schedulers, are available via a single in-app-purchase (which also removes advertisements).

Recently changed in this version

• Fixed a bug in uploading with deletion enabled.
• Private keys are now stored encrypted.
• File exclusion/inclusion fixed and tested.

    It did a great job of backing up my Nook to a Linux server. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in getting it to restore to my new replacement Nook. Solve this problem and I'll give it 5 stars, I really want everything back.

    Fail... Used to work now force closes... Got 200 meg into a sync and now I can't even load it! Waste of 3 bucks!

    This app doesn't work with a typical private key from ssh keygen, and it doesn't work with my sdcard. A complete waste of time, it has few options and is just lazy all round.

    As the title say - source code must be made avaiable

    Cannot access the microSD card (/storage/extSdCard) on Samsung Galaxy S3. It is not always obvious why a sync attempt fails: I tried once without results, then synced again and it worked. Still, it can be useful if the limitations won't bother you.

    This app was the easiest rsync client to use with ubuntu 12.04. Had no trouble syncing a folder on my computer within 5 minutes of installing. The in-app purchase options don't seem to work. I'd like to see this app improved; it needs a functioning pur
