Cloud sync solution Sugarsync brings batch photo uploads to iOS app, auto video uploads to Android

The fight to dominate the cloud sync space is becoming increasingly cutthroat, with services like Dropbox and Box bringing desktop features to their mobile clients at a quick pace.

Today, Sugarsync has joined the fray by updating its excellent iOS and Androids apps with a few photo- and video-centric features we’re sure  a lot of people are going to be very happy about.

The iOS app sits at version 2.5, and has included bulk photo and video uploads with the added bonus of leaving the app without interrupting the transfer. Also improved is the photo browser, which is now cleaner with a more native iOS interface.

The Android app sits at version 3.4, and though it already had bulk and automatic photo uploads, it now includes video uploads in the background over WiFi. That means that if you shoot a lot of videos and never know what to do with them, whenever your phone is connected to a WiFi network your files will be uploaded behind the scenes and, so as not to use too much battery life, can be set to upload only when plugged in.

Both updates also fix a number of bugs.

Check out the iOS and Android updates for Sugarsync.

    FolderSync does so much more and sync’s with a lot of the online services. It will also do FTP, WebDav, Samba and a ton more. You can also have it sync your pictures immediately (as you take them) and then sync your videos (which are quite a bit larger) when you are connected to your home wifi network at 1am and only if you are currently charging. You can turn these options on/off at will. I’ve tried about 10 different cloud sync’ing tools and this one was ahead of even DropBox and Syncplicity’s basis offerings.

    And before someone jumps in and says “This is my product”.. it is not. I am just a very happy customer who found the perfect app to suit my needs. The kicker for me was that it ties in with Tasker!

    SugarSync is my primary cloud program. I like it so much better than Dropbox or
