SugarSync Updates BlackBerry App, Introduces New Sync CapabilitiesBlackBerry Users Can Now Sync Folders Directly to Device, Sync Photos and Folders From SD Cards (August 23, 2011)
SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/23/11 -- SugarSync Inc., maker of the award-winning SugarSync online file backup, access, sync and sharing service, today announced that it has updated its SugarSync for BlackBerry app, making it even easier for users to backup, access, sync and share all of their files and data to and from their BlackBerry devices. New features include the ability to sync folders for offline use, sync data from the device's SD card, and set an application PIN code for additional security.
"At SugarSync, we constantly strive to enhance our mobile apps to provide even greater productivity and efficiency for users on the go," said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. "With SugarSync, users can be as productive from their mobile devices as from their computers. Whether online or off, users can access the files, photos, music and other data they need."
Direct Folder Sync to BlackBerry for Offline Access
BlackBerry users have always been able to access all of their files and folders from the Cloud via SugarSync's app. But today, BlackBerry users can now select any folder on any computer and sync it locally to their BlackBerry for offline access. Are you about hop on a plane, but need to review and edit some files on your BlackBerry while disconnected? Just sync the folders to your device before getting on the plane, and have access throughout the flight. As soon as you get off the plane and connect to a network, you can re-sync all your changes to the Cloud and your other devices.
SD Card Sync Enables Syncing of Photos and Folders to the Cloud
The new SugarSync for BlackBerry app includes support for syncing the SD card on BlackBerry devices. This enables users to select their photos or other folders on their BlackBerry's SD card and sync it to their computers and the Cloud. Do you snap a ton of photos with your BlackBerry, but hate the process of plugging your device into your computer to get the photos off your device? SugarSync's SD card sync for BlackBerry enables you to select your Photos folder (or any other folder) and sync it to your computer from anywhere. No wires required.
Additional Security with Application PIN Code
All SugarSync mobile transactions have always been encrypted and secure, to make sure you can securely sync and access all of your files and data no matter where you are. Today, SugarSync for BlackBerry adds an additional layer of security by providing the user the ability to set a PIN code in order to access the SugarSync app. Did you leave your BlackBerry in the cab again? With the PIN code enabled, you have added security from someone accessing your SugarSync app if they find your device.
The new SugarSync for BlackBerry app is the latest update in SugarSync's line of mobile apps, which cover 95 percent of all mobile devices in the world including iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Window's Mobile, and Symbian devices.

The SugarSync for BlackBerry app, like all SugarSync mobile apps, is free to download. It is available for download now from SugarSync's site or in BlackBerry App World. SugarSync offers a free 5GB version of the full service, with paid plans starting at 30 GB for $4.99/month or $50/year.
