Sync is an app which lets you easily transfer files directly between devices. It allows for sharing photos, videos, docs, and other file types without hitting storage limits. What's more, the app is powered by BitTorrent technology, making it especially fit for huge file transfers.

With Sync, you can create your own private cloud, connecting devices and syncing files securely between your Mac, PC, NAS, smartphone and even server. Yes, you can use Sync on mobile to access the files you keep on your home computer or work laptop, for example.

Sync also encrypts all files during transfer and never stores information on third-party servers, which means your data is protected against identity theft or attacks. The app comes with an automatic camera backup feature that stores photos and videos as soon as you take them. You can also set up backups of any info from your phone to a folder on your computer, and access folders and upload files to your devices from anywhere.

Another cool feature is connecting two devices by scanning QR codes, which works even on a local network without internet connection. Selective Sync lets you save only the files you need, and clear synced files to free up space on your device.
