AVG launches LiveKive cloud sync and backup tool

A while back, we told you about AVG's new LiveKive service, a new cloud synchronization and backup tool which appears to have been named after a vat in which mash is made during the brewing process. But enough about AVG's odd choice of monikers -- LiveKive has launched and is now ready to accept your files into the AVG cloud. LiveKive takes aim at services like Dropbox and SugarSync, though...

Quickoffice Pro HD launches for Android Honeycomb tablets

Quickoffice has launched a version of its mobile office suite that's tailored specifically for Android Honeycomb tablets. Quickoffice Pro HD, as it's being called, was designed from the ground up for tablet use, and as such features a user interface that's meant to take advantage of the extra screen real estate tablets have compared to smartphones. As expected, Quickoffice Pro HD allows...

SugarSync blocked by China's firewall like so many invading Huns

While you can't see the Great Firewall of China from space, its reach is global -- preventing those on the inside from accessing sites on the outside. Recently, another popular Web service was added to the block list: SugarSync. As the company's Laura Yecies points out in a blog post, SugarSync's aim "is to make information access fast, easy and ubiquitous." That, of course, is a philosophy...

Mozy announces sync apps for desktop, iOS and Android

Desktop-to-cloud backup provider Mozy has announced that it will soon release Mozy Sync, a file synchronization service like Dropbox or SugarSync.

AVG LiveKive to launch as Dropbox alternative

When you think of AVG, you probably think antivirus -- probably because it has sat near the top of Download.com's list of most downloaded apps for years. AVG has been tapped by tens of millions of users for malware protection, and the company now hopes those same people will turn to it for synchronized cloud storage. Called AVG LiveKive, the new service will launch in beta form next week --...

SugarSync giveaway: win a 30GB account for a year

When I reviewed SugarSync for Android in September, I came away with one resounding conclusion: it's better than Dropbox. The Android experience is better, and the Web experience is better. There was just one niggle: the free version of SugarSync was feature-crippled. Earlier today, however, SugarSync lifted the crippling restrictions from its free version and bumped the storage up to 5 GB. In...

SugarSync ups free storage to 5 GB, now allows any number of connected devices

SugarSync has announced that users of its basic, free plan will now get 5 GB of storage 'in the cloud'. Previously, that limit was 2 GB -- a limit that its main competitor, Dropbox, still has. The free 5 GB plan includes unlimited device support, and, as before, you can sync any folder(s) you wish across computers (Windows and Mac) and smartphones running iOS, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile...

SugarSync for Android is just like Dropbox... but better

Dropbox has received a lot of attention recently, mostly thanks to the rampant 'OMG 250MB referral!!' scheme that they've been successfully leveraging over the last couple of months. The thing is, just like Apple, Dropbox might be receiving the most press, but that doesn't mean it's better than the competition -- and there's a lot of competition! Enter SugarSync, a Dropbox competitor with a lot...

Syncplicity gives SugarSync a run for its money

Syncplicity is a new service that lets you synchronize files between two or more computers.

Sharpcast cuts its price in half before its half price promotion ends

Sharpcast's SugarSync provides one of the most complete solutions we've seen for keeping your files synchronized across computers, mobile devices, and the web. The service was free while in beta, but we were a bit turned off by the pricing, once it was announced, with prices ranging from $50 a year for 10GB of storage space to $500 for 250GB. At a time when many companies are offering 5GB or...
