Last week, Synology released a couple of new beta apps – DS Download and DS Video – for owners of its NAS boxes. Now it's added a third app, called DS Cloud, that allows Synology NAS owners to sync files to their Android device for offline viewing.

DS Cloud seems quite useful, as it lets you select certain files and folders you want to sync, as well as per-folder behavior, which basically ensures you always have the most recent version on your device (I wish Dropbox could do this!). You can also only allow it to sync over Wi-Fi, and quickly access files that have been recently updated.

Like Synology's other new apps, DS Cloud requires the beta version of DiskStation Manager in order to use the app.

DS Cloud's a free download in the Play Store – get it below.
