    I'm so excited I found this! And with the whole PRISM thing and government spying going on, I'm glad I don't have to upload my files to any company's cloud service in order to get the value that's offered

    I installed this so I could point out that there's now an actual android client on the bit torrent labs site. Install that rather than this.

    It is getting there. First up I could not get it to sync. I think it is a permissions issue, not sure. Second, it needs a kill button so you can mount the SDCard if btsync is set to sync there. So yea, it still has a bit to go to be functioning.

    A great idea for integrating btsync into Android, even though this is just a proof of concept. Would be really nice to have a native client / integration with more options (eg: wifi only).

    Works well... Needs updating to the latest build from bit torrent - 1.0.134.

    Liked it instantly and use it on Android, Windows and Linux to sync media and especially pictures taken with the mobile. Hope to see it losing the root requirement soon and to get some options like data transfer on Wifi only.

    Great as a proof of concept, but not feasible in any real world scenarios. Be sure to have root and busybox to try it out! Bittorrent is working on a native android version of BTSync...
