2.7 (See all)

iSynchronize is a data synchronization tool for Mac computers that can automatically copy your data between your computers when new files are added to one of the folders that you want to synchronize. The developer of this application started working on it because didn't trust public companies with his data. He has a point. If you have sensitive data on your Mac and you need to sync it with one or more computers, you should take every precaution possible. iSynchronize needs to be installed on every computer that you want to sync on your home network. It will continuously monitor the folders that you add to a watch list to make sure that all your Macs have the same data all the time.

This app requires a user account, but the developer states that they don't sell your data and that they can't see the files that you backup.

iSynchronize is a very simple app. When you install it for the first time, you will be asked to sign in or create an account. After that step is complete, you can start adding folders to the client. Once you install the app on your second Map, you will see the folders that you shared on your primary Mac and you can start syncing their contents.

There is a catch, though. This application can only be installed on Macs that run OS X Lion or newer.

In short, iSynchronize can be an easy solution to data syncing that does not store information on cloud servers. It is easy to set up and use.
