A new app has today been released for the iPad which will give Dropbox a serious run for its money. The new cloud based app from Syncplicity offers a large range of functionality, allowing users to browse, share and manage files and folders stored on their PC, Mac, SharePoint servers, on a corporate network or in popular cloud-based services such as Google Docs. An iPhone version of the app is also available. The press release paints an intriguing picture for users looking for a new cloud sync service.
“Syncplicity is used by business customers who want to create their own Virtual Private Cloud to store, manage, backup and share important data. Leveraging Syncplicity’s unique approach, companies can give their employees secure anytime, anywhere access to documents and files – regardless of whether the data is stored across multiple computers, mobile devices, corporate servers or cloud applications like Google Docs. Unlike others, Syncplicity is easy and convenient to use, and does not require users to change how they work. Instead, it works wherever and however users currently keep their files and folders across multiple devices”
Of course, for Apple users, the imminent launch of iCloud is going to generate a large amount of excitement when it is released alongside iOS 5 in the Fall. Taking on iCloud and Dropbox, the new Syncplicity iPad app, with a strong focus towards business customers, will likely find an audience among users with a need for high security, comprehensive functionality and ease of use. The service offers 2GB of storage for those who wish to try it out free of charge.
You can find the new Syncplicity iPad app on the iTunes App Store.
