Can’t Browse Files in List View
Update: latest version fixed the bug I had written about.
The app seems to do what you’d expect regarding viewing files that are synced on the cloud. One gripe is display of long file names. Most apps show the start and end of the file name with ... in the middle whereas Sync just truncates it with ... Seeing the last part of the file name is important to me. (The file name font could be slightly smaller too IMO.)
Need attention by the company
IPads and iOS is not this company’s focus at all, nor is usability. They play the “security” card as a reason for all the missing features. They have only done a single feature update in a year and it was a small viewing change! Nothing exciting.
They have yet to even integrate some of the great feature of iOS 12, i.e. files app integration. Nothing for 13. They barely works with the files app built into iOS. You will usually find you have to open the app to make it usable.
The offline files are often not offline and have to be redownloaded, I have run into this numerous times and reported it to no avail.
If you view the version history you will see only bug fixes month after month, and this bug has existed for 2 years! You also can’t stream video’s from the app like ANY other file syncing software. You will have to download it outside the app to stream it to a appleTV or other device.
Essentially anything modification or use of a file will require you to save it outside the app, locally or another sync app, and then put it back if you make any changes.
This app is a shame, they could have good privacy and a good app, but they have decent privacy, which is not difficult to implement, and an awful user experience. They are not worth the money. Find another app, I am looking for one now after using them for over 2 years I have finally just given up hope they will get better.
Looked Like A Promising Dropbox Replacement
Dropbox can’t be trusted, so I came across Sync in my search for an alternative. It looks good on paper, and the design is clean and simple, fairly intuitive.
However where it falls flat, and I mean dead flat, is I’ve had a couple instances of destructive data loss from sync failures (as in synchronization). Thank goodness I had those files backed up elsewhere, as they weren’t recoverable via Sync’s file recovery feature.
Second, there is an arbitrary sharing limitation of the number of folders (not users, total folders) that can be involved in sharing with other users. So even if you share with a single other user, as soon as one of you creates more than a couple folders within a shared folder, those folders and all the files contained within are not shared. There’s not even a notification telling you why, so you’ll likely be frustrated trying to figure out what’s going wrong. This is plain stupidity by the company, because I was in the middle of converting my sixth friend/family member over to Sync from Dropbox when I discovered this limitation that renders the entire service useless to me.
Since then not only have I not told anyone else about Sync, but I moved all 6 of those people back onto our shared Dropboxes (now using Cryptomator for sensitive files).
Oh well, their loss.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
