SugarSync Becomes the First Service to Give Users True Sync Between All Devices — Computers, Smartphones and Tablets — With a Single Place to Manage It All

SAN MATEO, CA, June 14, 2011 –/– SugarSync Inc., makers of the award-winning SugarSync online file backup, access and sharing service, today announced its new Mobile Device Management capabilities for iOS devices — the easiest way to get files from your computer to your iPhone or iPad. In addition, SugarSync also introduced its improved and updated BlackBerry app, featuring significant usability and performance upgrades.

“With the new Mobile Device Management features and the updated BlackBerry app, we are extending our leadership in mobile cloud services,” said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. “SugarSync has always supported the most mobile platforms in the industry, utilizing the Cloud to give users freedom from their computers by giving them access to all of their data, anytime, and on any device. With this latest release, we make it even easier for users to leave their laptops at home and work exclusively from their mobile devices — whether online or off.”

Mobile Device Management Makes it a Snap to Get Data to Your Devices
In this release, SugarSync’s new Mobile Device Management feature gives users the ability to view and control their data on their iOS mobile devices from within the Web console, making it the easiest way to get files from your computer to your iPhone or iPad. SugarSync will be rolling Mobile Device Management out to the other mobile platforms in the future as well.

Today, users with iOS devices can:

  • Transfer files or entire folders to your iPhone or iPad from the Web. No wires needed.
  • Simply view all the synced data on your iPhone or iPad from the Web.
  • Easily refresh files or entire folders on your iPhone or iPad with a single click.
  • This is the simplest way to keep your iPhone/iPad in sync with the files on your computer.

You’ve always been able to access and manage your data on the Cloud from your mobile devices with SugarSync. Now you can access and manage your devices from the Cloud.

Platform Update Provides Improved Usability
As part of this latest platform update, SugarSync also tackled several usability improvements based on customer feedback. As a result, users can now take advantage of improved right-click menu options that give you even more control of your SugarSync files and folders. For instance, users can now simply right click and select “Add to SugarSync” to get an entire folder into their SugarSync cloud. In addition, there is a new “Share Folder” option that instantly adds a new folder to the SugarSync cloud and enables you to share it, all in a single step.

BlackBerry Users Get an Improved App
SugarSync has also introduced an updated version of its popular BlackBerry application, introducing significant usability and performance upgrades. Enhancements in the new app include:

  • Improved usability – SugarSync has revamped the user interface to make it consistent with the iOS and Android apps, streamlining the design and making it easier to use. Now actions like streaming music from your computer to your BlackBerry are easier than ever.
  • Improved navigation – To make SugarSync for BlackBerry consistent with the look and feel of other BlackBerry apps, SugarSync has added tabs to make it easier to access critical functions.
  • Simplified sharing – In this update SugarSync has made sharing much easier by integrating with the BlackBerry’s native email and address book. We have also incorporated the “Copy Link to Clipboard” feature, making it easier to share files and folders via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Bonus Referral Program Now Permanent!
Previously, SugarSync had a limited-time bonus referral program that enabled users to earn free storage for referring new users. As of today, SugarSync has made this bonus referral program permanent — allowing users to earn an UNLIMITED amount of free storage based on how many users they refer. For every person a user refers that signs up for a free 5GB account, both the existing user and the new user get 500MB (half a gigabyte) of storage added to their accounts. And for every person a user refers that signs up for a paid account (starting at just $5 a month), both the existing user and the new user get an additional 10GB added to their accounts!
