    Much like Cloudii, FolderSync lets you access all of your cloud storage services in one app. But it also allows you to set up sync schedules between specific folders on your device and whatever cloud services you like. It can also work as a file manager if you need one.

    This app let's you sync specific folders from your various cloud storage accounts (only two accounts in the free version) to specific folders on your device like cloud folders on a PC. This is especially useful for times without an Internet connection as your files are already saved for you. You have complete control over when and where syncing occurs to save battery or data, and syncing can go both ways.

    FolderSync is one of several apps that allow you to sync your Android device with cloud-storage services (pretty much as what Dropbox does for "big" computers). When installed on several devices, you can keep eg documents on those devices synchronised -- perfect if you are using your Androids for serious work.

Description

Show me more

FolderSync is a application that enables simple sync to cloud based storage to and from local folders on the device memory card. It currently support multiple OneDrive, Copy.com, Dropbox, Dump Truck, SugarSync, Bitcasa, Ubuntu One, Box.net, LiveDrive, HiDrive, Google Docs, NetDocuments, Amazon S3, FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV or windows share (Samba/CIFS) accounts, and support for more platforms are planned. Read-only access to protected file-system also supported - requires root.
Effortlessly sync your files. Backup your music, pictures and other important files from the phone to your cloud storage or the other way around. It has never been easier. Tasker / locale support enables fine grained control of your syncs.


FolderSync also contains a full file manager, that enables you to manage your files locally and in the cloud. Copy, move and delete your files in your cloud/remote accounts. Support for creation/deletion of buckets in Amazon S3. Upload and download files from the phone. It's all supported.


There is also a lite version, so you can test functionality before you buy. The lite version only allows two accounts and has no sync filters or Tasker support.
