File sharing platform BitTorrent is launching a new iOS app this week called BitTorrent Sync that lets users synchronize encrypted folders and files across multiple devices.
The app is free and users can upload an unlimited number of files and folders to be shared on different devices. It’s designed for big files, so you don’t have to worry about compressing files before you upload them. The transfers are encrypted and your data and personal information are protected by private keys which are not stored on a server in the cloud.
Here is more about it from the BitTorrent blog:
Sync started from a simple concept: your data belongs to you, no matter where you are. This means you should be able to pick up your work on any device, or send your photos across the world, and back. And it also means that your stuff should be secure. Sync skips the cloud to deliver files faster, and safer. Sync doesn’t rely servers, which are vulnerable to hacks and prying eyes.
