Review

SugarSync is a client application that allows you to make use of the cloud-based services of the same name. It allows you not only to store data of any kind in the cloud, but also to share it with other users or devices.

The desktop app has a straightforward functional design. It has a navigation menu on the left that allows you to access its different features through tabs. The tool lets you manage the synchronization and data sharing functions. It is very easy to add files to your folders in SugarSync via drag and drop. Similarly, you can view the status of file transfers, the data you are currently sharing, associated devices and public links.

It is very convenient that the application allows you to set limits on data upload speeds so that synchronization does not affect other browsing tasks. If you are concerned about the security of your data it is good to know that SugarSync uses highly reliable AES-256 protocols for its storage. Unfortunately, unlike other similar services, SugarSync does not use end-to-end encryption, which means that the service provider has access to the contents of your files, which is a potential threat to your privacy.

In short, this desktop application allows you to use the services provided by SugarSync in a more convenient way than its web interface. It is very easy to set up, and once done, you rarely have to do it again. The application can be downloaded for free. However, the services will only be available free of charge for a short period of time. When the free period expires, you will have to pay for the service, which may be more expensive than other similar services.
