SugarSync App Moves To Version 4.0 In First Update Since Summer 2012 With New Design And More

Popular cloud syncing and sharing app SugarSync, which promises to give you "all of your data at your fingertips," got a major update today – its first since July 20th, 2012.

Probably the most obvious change is to the app's interface. In the 4.0 update, SugarSync has been totally redesigned to bring it closer to its desktop and web counterparts, adding – among other things – a new gallery with larger thumbnails, thumbnail support for common video formats, and some holo-esque elements.

Besides its visual overhaul, the app has several handy new features. Among them are cloud search (which lets users search across all their computers), the ability to sync folders from your SD card, and some under-the-hood performance/battery life enhancements.

Dropbox For Android Updated To v2.2.2, Finally Brings The Ability To Move Files And Folders

Of all the services that I use on a daily basis, Dropbox is probably the one that I absolutely can't live without. I store nearly everything in it, use it to quickly (and automatically, thanks to FolderSync) transfer screenshots to my PCs, and easily share files with other AP team members, friends, and family. However, the fact that files and folders couldn't previously be moved from within the Android app has always been pretty annoying.

Dropbox Now Allows Easy Public Sharing Of Any Folder, Even From The Android App

So, Dropbox just enabled a new feature that lets you share any folder, with anyone. I know what you're thinking: "but, Cam, I can already share folders with anyone I want. There's nothing new here." While you can share folders with other Dropbox users, this is different. It's actually more like sharing things in your public folder - it basically allows you to share the contents of a folder via link, but the recipient can't edit the files, only view them.

Oh, and it already works from the Android app, no update required.

So, here's the gist: on your desktop, you can right-click on any folder within your Dropbox folder and select "Get link." A window will pop up in your browser with the contents of the folder - simply copy the link in the address bar and send it to whoever you want to share with.

LiveSorter Eases The Process Of Sorting Apps - RIP, Manually Maintained Folders

With somewhere around 200 apps on my phone at any given time, it can be a pain to scroll through all of them to find what I'm looking for. Categorizing apps into handy folders can also be time-consuming. Fazik Logic takes the concept of sorting your apps one step further however with LiveSorter, a new app that automatically sorts installed applications into appropriate categories.

Adding to the list of LiveSorter's benefits, it has relatively no resource drain as it only wakes when a new app is installed and needs to be sorted. At the moment the app only recognizes apps from the Android Market.
