BitTorrent Sync has now entered public beta and is available for download for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android devices. The app allows you to synchronise your files across all devices and share them with your friends and family
BitTorrent Sync has a peer to peer protocol that allows you to move files directly from one device to another without using an insecure intermediary. The files transferred are encrypted and only those people who have the 'secret key' can access the shared files.
The app further allows you to create 'read-only secrets' that are ideal for sharing materials with your colleagues and 'one-time secrets' that can be used only once. It has Sync pops that can scanned quickly to access your files from your mobile devices.
Sync has also added some advanced features called 'Sync Archive' which is like a basic versioning system so the user can access deleted and old versions of files. It also has one-way synchronization that allows the user to push files somewhere, without replicating any changes made to the files.
It has also added 'Mobile support' which allows the user access to files and folders across platforms whether Linux, Android, Windows or iOS. The BitTorrent Sync app is very cool and allows your to sync photos between your smartphone and PC or between your home and office PCs. Users don't have to go through Dropbox or YouSendIt to share files/folders with friends or colleagues.
