Sweet Sync becomes first unofficial Sugar Sync client for Windows Phone

Sweet Sync

Although many of us are now hardcore SkyDrive users, some people still rely on or need Sugar Sync (www.sugarsync.com) for their file sharing and storing needs. And while Sugar Sync is working on a Windows Phone client, we have no ETA on when that app will arrive. So it's with great pleasure for us to see Sweet Sync on the Marketplace fulfilling that role.

The client offers most of what you would expect a mobile Sugar Sync client to offer:

  • Allows the creation, modification and deletion of any file or folder in your account, including received shares
  • Upload, Download and View Images
  • Create public links for your files and share them with friends
  • Open documents with public links directly on your phone (Not all filetypes can be opened)

We just took the app for a spin and it's hella-nice. Bold graphics (which are not Metro but still look nice), ease of use, plenty of options. Heck, we're impressed with it and while it may not replace our SkyDrive, we're not against adding extra storage when and where we can either.

Sweet Sync

Sugar Sync fetches for a fair $1.29 with a limited trial (read-only access). Our recommendation: if you use Sugar Sync, give it a shot. Even if the official app comes out, we tend to go with third-party devs for better support and more functionality. But that's us.

Pick up Sweet Sync here in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

boring look and looks more like boring icons of iPhone or android. Sorry but I stick to SkyDrive way better and way better with look. Also please stop pretending how nice it looks just to impress us to install it. LoL

The app is not available for my phone, I guess because of regional restriction. Fantastic.... Yet another reason to use skydrive in the meantime, until they release the official app.

Hi,
Can you let me know what region you are in and il make sure that the application becomes available to you
I've had to be selective (maybe too selective) in which areas i've released the application as its only in english
If anyone else wants a region to be added please email me wp7@anetics.co.uk

I stopped using SugarSync. I only use SkyDrive since the Windows 7 client was introduced. I've been waiting too long for the WP7 client and SkyDrive is a lot more better. Another thing is that I really don't like the design of this Sweet Sync app. It looks so Android looking to me.
