AMSTERDAM: BitTorrent has released an update for BitTorrentSync on Android and iOS that will make it more useful for frequent users on the move.
According to The Next Web, now the users can create different kinds of files and directly add them to a sync folder.
Earlier, the users had to open the Sync app before adding items which could only be uploaded to a folder that lived within their camera roll on iOS or their local file system on Android.
Now the users will be able to record a video or create a document on their phone and have any edits they make in other apps be automatically uploaded onto the rest of their Sync-enabled devices.
The update also means that iOS users can use the native camera roll viewer to choose what files they want to have synced up, rather than being forced to open the files from the Sync app.
Sync will be automating uploads when the users open a file from within the app if they need to make edits to a document.
Before the users could only preview the files in a synced folder. Now tapping on the file will take the users to an outside application where they can make changes. These will then automatically be sent to the rest of their linked devices.
The updated is available on Android and iOS users.
