Syncs successfully once, then it can't find its own folders to sync again. That's pretty annoying and inconvenient. If I need it to sync regularly and don't have the failure notification turned on, I'll just lose new data when I upgrade to a new device under the impression that everything synced. I'm going to need to try something else while this is broken. Shame because I otherwise like it.

It's a robust software that comes with many features. Everything that's got to do with backing up your data and keeping it current, this is it. Advanced option shouldn't be touched and kept it in the default settings if possible because even with the documentation provided it's not easy to understand. Requires some experimentation to figure it out. This utility has URL that can be used with web browser to invoke sync. Has extensive logging that traces all the movement of data.

1. Everytime I open the app, Android considers am opening a game. Please fix that. It unnecessarily brightens the screen. 2.Provide an option to edit the folder pair name. 3. Bug- if you try to cancel a sync with Instant sync option enabled, then it continuously keeps on syncing repeatedly. 4. Provide an icon on the folder pair screen to pause the schedule. Apart from the above issues this is a very good app. Still I give it 5 stars because the stability of the sync outweights these issues.
