SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - SugarSync, a free service that lets you access, sync and share your files and folders across all your computers and mobile devices, today announced its new SugarSync app for Windows 8 and Windows RT, which can be downloaded now via the Windows Store.
"SugarSync is the only Cloud service that supports such a wide range of platforms, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Symbian," said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. "In anticipation of the industry's interest in Windows 8 and Windows RT devices, we have developed a new SugarSync app to take advantage of the new Windows user interface."
Windows 8 and Windows RT users can go to the Windows Store to install the SugarSync app. Once the app is installed, you can access all your folders, documents, photos, music and movies from any computer or device that is synced with SugarSync. You can also share large files with a few select people, or share them broadly with public links. And unlike other Cloud services that only let you sync one special Cloud folder, SugarSync continues to let you backup, access, sync and share as many folders as you want in your existing file structure.
In addition to SugarSync's existing industry-leading features, the new SugarSync apps also include these Windows 8- and Windows RT-enabled features:
- Tiles - The apps include live tiles that keep you up to date with recent changes to your files, and more. Now you've got a direct view into your Cloud activity.
- Pinning - Now you can pin your most frequently accessed folders to the Start screen for quick, one-touch access. Accessing your Cloud just got faster.
- Snap View - By incorporating Snap View, you can now keep SugarSync open while browsing the Internet, chatting with a friend, or updating Facebook. Your Cloud is now a multi-tasker.
- Share Charm - Share any file via the Share charm. The Share charm combined with the power of your Cloud streamlines the sharing of large files from any Windows 8 device.
SugarSync for Windows 8 and Windows RT is available today from the Windows Store. SugarSync for Windows Phone will be coming soon.
