File sorting, cloud search added to new app version
Premium cloud file locker SugarSync today introduced a new iOS app for the service. The latest app simplifies access and file sharing from any computer, or directly from an iPhone or iPad. The redesigned iOS app brings a new user interface -- creating a consistent UI design across all SugarSync platforms, including the SugarSync 2.0 desktop and Web applications.
Today's update to the iOS app includes a simpler design and more intuitive navigation, allowing users to quickly access and share their files and folders. The new navigation includes a device filter, which provides the ability to either view all of the folders in a user's SugarSync Cloud or only the folders syncing to a specific computer. Managing and accessing shared content has been enhanced by two new sections -- "Shared by Me" and "Shared with Me."
A new "cloud search" feature has been added to the service. The new search allows for discovery of any file or folder synced to the SugarSync Cloud from any computer or device. Search results are grouped into different categories such as folders, documents, photos, videos, making it easier to navigate all the content.
SugarSync offers a free 5GB version with larger plans available ranging from 60GB to 1TB. The iOS app for the service is free, and available now.
