BitTorrent Sync from BitTorrent lets you sync and share unlimited files and folders across all of your trusted devices. Sync and share any file! Photos, videos, word docs, PDFs - any file big or small. Sync can handle any size and there are no limits. Sync all the GBs you want. BitTorrent Sync for Android gives you access to all of your synced folders when you’re on the go!

• Access all your Sync folders and files from your Android device.
• Add photos, videos, PDFs, or docs from your Android device to any of your Sync folders.
• Automatically backup your files (photos, videos, PDF, documents) to a folder on your computer.
• File transfers are encrypted and protected by secure keys.
• Your information is never stored on a server in the cloud.

To get the best performance and avoid running up your data charges while syncing your mobile device, we recommend leaving the "Use mobile data" setting off.

Please note that BitTorrent Sync is a personal file syncing application. It is not compatible with torrent file sharing applications and is similar to Box and Dropbox.

BitTorrent Sync for Android is not compatible with Intel Atom-based devices and is compatible with BitTorrent Sync for desktop version 1.1.27 or later. If you don’t already have this version, you can download it at:

This is required to enable you to send feedback and other information from the application to our team of developers. The application will also ask permission to access your camera for scanning QR codes, as well as to access network connection and storage in order to download and store files on your phone and SD card.

    Very good application but please provide a toggle button widget to start/stop syncing. It will be very useful rather than opening the application every time. I don't prefer to keep any activity running all the time on my phone. I will give 5 stars only after getting the toggle button. Thanks.

    This is the only syncing program I use. I plan to combine it with owncloud soon in order to run my own tracker as well.

    I tried to share my pictures , which I store in the external SD , and the result is "can't write into the folder". Then I can' t use it to share my photos nor videos. I can understand to keep in sync can require some metadata, also is not mandatory to write them in the same folder of data you want to sync right? Just store metadata somewhere else when sharing read-only folders, maybe?

    Does what it says, good support services. Just missing manual hosts list, can't access home server without it.
