Sync lets you share your files directly from device to device without using the cloud. Sync photos, videos, presentations, PDFs, and more with unlimited sharing capacity and no folder size limits.

Sync links your devices with a private identity, which means your information is never stored on servers in the cloud. Sync skips the cloud to keep your data secure and transfers files up to 16x faster.

On-demand access to all of the synced folders on your Mac, PC, or NAS device allows you to sync your files only when you need them to save space on your Android device.

• Access your folders and files from your Android device.
• Add photos, videos, docs, and PDFs from your Android device to any of your synced folders.
• Automatically backup your photos to a folder on your computer to protect your memories.
• Files are encrypted in-flight to keep them private and protected.
• Your information is never stored on a server in the cloud.
• Take a picture of a QR code to easily connect to folders on other devices.
• Sync large folders on-demand.

2.0 Updates:
• Ability to cancel pending file transfers
• Back up your linked devices in two taps
• Change which devices you back up to at any time
• Peer list of connected devices visible for each folder
• View details for each folder including size, number of files, last synced date, and other helpful info
• Updated user interface and performance improvements
• Clear synced files to free up space on your device
• Improved action menu in the main folder list

To get the best performance and to avoid running up your data charges while syncing folders, we recommend leaving the "Use Cellular Data" setting off.

Please note that BitTorrent Sync is a personal file syncing application. It is not compatible with torrent file sharing applications.

    Over complicated and confusing setup. Doesn't notice changes/additions to files and no force sync option. Uninstalled

    Willful ignorance is no reason rate a publisher's software poorly. If you don't understand how to use it, then don't use it. Why rate it poorly simply because you did not take the time to learn it's usage. That would be like buying Photoshop and being upset you aren't instantly equipped with the knowledge to do the edits, or design graphics in the way you want... Be reasonable, at least pretend to

    If I wanted a subscription service, I would just use Dropbox. At least then if all my hard drives fail, the paid for cloud storage comes in handy. With Sync I'd be SOL and out the money. Moving to SyncThing.
