For those of you who are using SugarSync for synchronizing files on your Android smartphones or tablets with your PCs, you’ll be glad to know that the Android app has just been updated. The update brings in a nifty feature that automatically syncs videos you’ve captured from your Android devices to your PC easily. This means that by using the updated version of the app, you will no longer need a USB cable or an SD card reader just to transfer videos to your PC. All you need to do is download the app if you haven’t done so yet, and tweak some settings to get you started synching your files including videos. The next time your Android devices is connected to the same network as your PC, the auto synching will do its wonders without you bothering to do anything else. The app also auto-detect new videos you’ve captured and upload the video to the cloud and then transfer it to your PC.
