SAN MATEO, Calif.–July 20, 2010 — (BUSINESS WIRE)–SugarSync Inc., makers of the award-winning SugarSync file sync, backup and sharing service, today announced the launch of an updated version of the popular SugarSync for BlackBerry app, enabling people to stream music from their cloud-based SugarSync storage account to their BlackBerry handheld devices.

SugarSync for BlackBerry features the ability to remotely access, open and easily share your computer files, including documents, photos and more stored in a SugarSync account. With an appropriate document editor, files can be edited as well and synced back.
