Works well if you need to sync with cloud services with a small number/size of data(~10GB) but anything larger than that will take a very long time to sync. Also, the auto-sync function is more like a scheduled sync. It will check and update every x hours/minutes that you define. So it doesn't live update upon new things being added. I'd recommend using Syncthing if you want a more robust service for syncing data across devices without using a cloud.

Does not work. I have several folders set up to pull from an FTP server, a very simple operation that the software is not doing. Well, sometimes it decides to. For a couple of my synced folders. But the rest, it just pretends they're empty. Even though when browsing the FTP through the app they aren't. Avoid.

An incredibly useful app that just... Works. As someone who maintains a library of music files, this app makes it syncing updates to my library a one button affair. My biggest gripe is that setting it up for SMB is a bit odd. Rather than having access to all shared folders on a locally shared drive, you must specify each and every individual root folder. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme. Ads are ads. But the functionally is solid for a free app. If you need a syncing app, this works wonders.
