SugarSync, a free service that actively syncs your folders and files across all your computers and mobile devices, today introduced a completely redesigned app re-written from the ground up to be truly optimized for the iPad. The new SugarSync for iPad app introduces a radically simplified interface that enables you to get things done faster and brings the most-used features to the forefront.
"The increasing proliferation of mobile devices continues to drive the demand for solutions that give you access to all your data from whatever device you happen to have with you at that moment," said Drew Garcia, VP of Product Management at SugarSync. "As the way people use their mobile devices evolves, our mobile innovations are helping people stay ahead of the curve by revolutionizing the way they access and interact with their data on the iPad."
Simplifying The Mobile Cloud
From the moment you log in to the SugarSync app on your iPad, you'll notice a simplified interface. We've moved all of your devices, shared folders, photos, and more to a permanent toolbar along the left side of the screen for easier navigation. We also put one of our most popular and useful features -- mobile photo and video backup -- right on the home screen for instant access.
Navigate With Drag and Swipe
Navigating the new SugarSync for iPad app is simple and intuitive. To access your files, simply click on a device and a panel with your synced folders and files from that device will slide in for easy viewing. As you click into folders, additional panels will slide in and stack on top of previous panels as you navigate deeper within any file path. You can drag, swipe, half-swipe, and use other familiar gestures to see more or less of your data. And no matter where you are in a file path, the toolbar on the left stays present, so that you can quickly access other devices and important data without having to click a "Back" button frequently.
See It All From the Same Screen
Instead of seeing the content of one folder taking up the entire screen on your iPad (and seeing lots of wasted white space), you can now see the contents of many folders at once and open files in any of them instantly. This is especially useful when you want to browse photos quickly without having to scroll through every photo sequentially. Applying the same principle to documents, songs, etc. means you can do a lot more a lot faster, and in a way that we think is just more fun.
