P2P Dropbox competitor BitTorrent Sync comes to iOS


BitTorrent Sync, the P2P-based Dropbox competitor built by the people who brought us µTorrent, arrived on iOS devices Tuesday. BitTorrent said Tuesday that it also localized the service into ten languages, including Spanish, Chinese and German.

BitTorrent Sync for iOS - Mobile to MobileiPhone and iPad users can now automatically sync folders between their mobile devices and their desktop computers, share files with other mobile users or back up their photos to their computer. Data transfers are automatically encrypted, so it’s impossible that those photos accidentally get into the wrong hands. And the best thing: Sync is completely free, and usage is unlimited.

BitTorrent began alpha testing of Sync in April, and launched a beta test of apps for Windows, OS X, Linux and Android in July. At the time, the company said that Sync users had already transferred more than 8 Petabytes.

Sync is part of a number of services launched by BitTorrent in recent months to branch out beyond its traditional file sharing app. Other efforts include SoShare, an app that promises to help digital media professionals to share large files, and BitTorrent’s live video streaming service.

You can also try Fylet (http://fylet.com).
Fylet SIMPLE is a simple version of Fylet app. Fylet SIMPLE finds photos on your smart phone or tablet and automatically transfers them to computer. Fylet’s new product will use new technology to connect devices and transfer photos directly, even if your devices are miles apart. And Fylet is not like Dropbox. Dropbox is cloud based solution and stores your photos on their servers. Fylet doesn’t store your photos on any server, not even for a second. Your pictures are stored only on your devices. So you don’t have to worry about cloud privacy threats at all.

I don’t iOS users choose anything other than iCloud to backup their device. However, Android users actually have the luxury of choosing their software of preference. Being of the latter crowd, I’d like to see a review on my backup choice which is G Cloud Janko ;)
