About this app

Sync lets you transfer files directly from device to device. Share photos, videos, docs without storage limits: our technology works especially well with huge files.

Create your own private cloud. Connect devices and sync files securely between your Mac, PC, NAS, and even server. Use Sync on your mobile to access the files you keep on your home computer or work laptop.

Sync encrypts all files during transfer and never stores any of your information on third-party servers. This means your data is protected against identity theft or attacks.

No storage limits
• Sync as much data as you have on your hard drive or SD card.
• Add large files of any size to your synced folders and transfer them up to 16x faster than the cloud.

Automatic camera backup
• Sync will back up photos and videos as soon as you take them.
• You can then delete photos from your phone and save space.
• Set up backup of any info from your phone to a folder on your computer.

Any device and platform
• Access folders and upload files to your tablet, PC, Mac, NAS, and even server from anywhere.

One Time Send
• The fastest and most private way to send files to friends and family.
• Send one or more files to multiple recipients without sharing the whole folder or creating a permanent sync connection.
• Send photos, videos, movies, or any other large file directly to friends.

Direct transfers, no cloud
• Your information is never stored on servers in the cloud, so nobody can access it without your permission.
• Transfer files directly and fast using BitTorrent peer-to-peer technology (p2p).
• Connect two devices by taking picture of a QR code, even if you are in local network without internet connection.

Save space
• Selective Sync lets you save only the files you need.
• Clear synced files to free up space on your device.

Supports all file types
• Sync photos, videos, music, PDFs, docs and books library to your Android phone or tablet.

To get the best performance and to avoid running up your data charges while syncing folders, we recommend leaving the "Use Cellular Data" setting off.

Note: Resilio Sync is a personal file syncing manager. It is not compatible with torrent file sharing applications.

The syncing works really well as long as you're not trying to sync a folder that was previously managed by Resilio Sync (likely old metadata causing problems). The encrypted sync feature is super useful for untrusted devices, although it's not without limitations. However I ultimately can't recommend this app for mobile phones due to the very high battery usage. The app has a sleep mode but doesn't allow you to configure the scheduler. SyncThing is harder to setup, but much lighter on battery.

It would be great if it didn't have a fatal flaw - % signs. These cause transfers to fail, but not only do they fail. No, that would be too good. It continues to attempt to resend filling devices with garbage files filling them up and wastes network resources. They promised a fix over two years ago and never followed through.

A little awkward but mostly works. I use this to transfer photos from one camera to another and it works quite well there, but when it comes to uploading to Google Photos, sometimes I have to exit Photos completely and start again, sometimes several times, to get everything. I'm not sure why it has this trouble, or how much of this is a Sync vs Photos problem, but before installing Sync, that phone had no trouble uploading everything to Photos all in one shot.
