The ability to take files from your computer and edit them on the road on your mobile is extremely useful, but it does tend to mean having to manually copying files from one location to another. Using Syncplicity you can make sure that the files you are working with are always available where you need them – this can be used for the purposes of keeping devices synchronized with the same files, or as a backup tool.

All of your files are secured using 256-bit AES encryption and you can share files with other by simply copying and pasting the relevant link into an email. You’re likely to find that Syncplicity becomes a frequently used tool and you may find that you start to lose track of which files you have been working with. Thankfully, there is a news feed available that keep you informed about which files have been edited most recently.

Another handy feature of the service is versioning. This means that when you make changes to a file, the original is retained so if you should change your mind about some editing you have carried out, you can step back in time to retrieve the older version.

The free version of the service provides you with access to 2GB of online storage and this can be used to keep two computer and mobile devices synchronized. There are no limits on the size of individual files, but should you decide that you need more storage space, or need to work with more device, you have the option of upgrading to the Personal Edition of the service which will cost you $15 per month.

Verdict

More storage space for free would have been nice, but Syncplicity is a seriously useful tool to add to your mobile device.
