Store important data in a secure private cloud, download files uploaded from other devices and keep them synchronized at all times, with this useful OS X app
Sync is an easy-to-use desktop application that allows you create secure backups of important files that can be accessed from a multitude of devices and any location.
It achieves this with the help of a cloud storage service that supports bi-directional synchronization and makes it easy to share files and work on collaborative projects.
Lightweight OS X app that links you to your Sync private cloud
In order to use this application you first need to create an online account. Sync monitors a folder on your Mac that is constantly scanned for new or modified files, which are automatically transferred to your private cloud. You also have the option of excluding certain folders if you do not want them to be synchronized.
Additionally, any items uploaded from another device or the web interface are fetched by the application and stored locally.
Sync offers end-to-end file encryption to ensure private data cannot be accessed without your consent or intercepted while it is being transferred.
Gives useful notifications and can be accessed from your menu bar
The Sync icon added to your Mac’s menu bar lets you know whenever content is being downloaded or uploaded. You can click it to open your designated sync folder, launch the browser-based interface and view the current status of your account.
The application can also display desktop notifications when a new file has been saved on your Mac.
Take advantage of a powerful online service that supports numerous devices
This OS X application can be used in conjunction with its Windows, iOS and Android versions so that you always have access to the files in your cloud and can keep them synchronized across all your devices.
You can create encrypted links and share them with others even if they do not have a Sync account, as well as invite other users to work on collaborative projects.
All in all, this is a straightforward OS X app that allows you to synchronize files between your Mac and the could-based Sync storage service. It is very easy to operate and can be a helpful backup and sharing tool.
