BotSync wirelessly syncs files to your Android device via SFTP

There are plenty of big-name sync tools available for Android -- like Dropbox, SugarSync, and Fiabee. Those of you who prefer taking the DIY approach, however, might want to check out BotSync, a new app that can connect to your own SFTP server. Configuring BotSync is simple enough. Enter your server address and credentials, the appropriate port number, local and remote directories to use as you...

Fiabee releases companion apps to share, sync files between Chrome and Android

Fiabee is a relative newcomer to the cloud-to-mobile storage game, having only released its iOS app [iTunes link] back in June. The company has now begun focusing on Google's platforms and has made beta versions of the Fiabee app available for Android devices and Google Chrome. The Fiabee Chrome app is no bookmark -- it's an extension app (all its HTML, JavaScript, CSS, images, and fonts are s...

Cyberduck brings FTP, WebDAV, S3, and Google Docs transfers to Windows

Cyberduck has long been a favorite app of Mac owners, and with good reason. The free, open source app is a powerful way to transfer files between your desktop and the cloud, supporting FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Docs, Windows Azure, and more. Now, Cyberduck has finally arrived on Windows. The release of version 4.0 beta packs the same great features as the Mac version, including SCP,...

FluffyApp updates, adds region capture and better tray controls

FluffyApp for Windows is a terrifically easy way to share screenshots and files online. Since it arrived with its CloudApp-for-Windows goodness, developer Richard Wang has been busy adding new features -- including several incredibly useful ones in version 0.8.7 and 0.8.8. For starters, FluffyApp now supports region selections, so you're no longer limited to full-desktop or program-window scre...

DropItToMe lets people upload to your Dropbox via a password-protected Web page

Dropbox is an extremely handy service, and it's made even more handy by all the developers who create useful new ways to interact with our Dropbox storage. A while back, Jay wrote about AirDropper -- which allows other people to email files right to your Dropbox. Today, I discovered DropItToMe. Like AirDropper it allows other people to add files to your Dropbox. DropItToMe, however, works via ...

Russian firm successfully unlocks encrypted BlackBerry backups

256-bit encryption certainly sounds like it's secure. But depending on how a company implements that encryption, it may not provide quite the level of protection you'd think. That appears to be the case with BlackBerry backup files, if reports from Russian security firm Elcomsoft turn out to be true. Using systems running an Intel Core i7 CPU, they were able to break the 7-character unlock cod...

Burnbit turns just about any download into a torrent

Ever found an awesome download on the Web and thought, "Man, why don't they offer a torrent download?!" It's so much nicer pulling down Ubuntu ISOs at 690K per second via µTorrent instead of 250K or so via HTTP. A newly-launched service called Burnbit is set to give Web downloads a much-needed punch in the face. Head over to their website, drop the URL to an HTTP download in the blank, a...

ZUploader is an awesome desktop app for uploading files, pictures, and text

Zscreen is an absolutely phenomenal screenshot tool. One of the features I like about it most is its awesome integration with online hosting services -- and not just for images. ZScreen also support short URL services, text hosts like Pastebin, and file hosts such as RapidShare and Drop.io. It's certainly a handy feature, but what if you're not a ZScreen user? Wouldn't it be slick to have stan...

File transfer on its way to GMail chat

Now that you can upload any file to your Google Docs, it only makes sense that Google would start tapping into that cloud storage elsewhere. The crew from Mountain View has just announced that both iGoogle and Orkut chat now have built-in file transfer. Next stop: GMail chat, where you'll soon be able to send files to chat participants. Start a chat, click actions, send your file. Ba-da-bing! ...

MailDrop automatically saves email attachments to Dropbox

Dropbox has to be one of the easiest ways to move files around. If you receive a lot of files in your email that you'd like to move into your Dropbox, check out MailDrop. MailDrop is a Windows executable that will watch a specific folder in an email account, and download any attachments on messages it finds in that folder to the folder you specify in your DropBox account. It can connect to any ...

Updated script makes creating text files from Mac's Finder even easier

About a week ago I posted about an AppleScript that you can use to create a new text file in the Finder folder that you are looking at. I was a little bit surprised by the reaction; some people thought it was a great idea, while others thought it ridiculous and couldn't imagine why anyone would ever want to do that. Well, if you fall into the latter camp, you might as well skip the rest of this po...

There are currently SugarSync clients for WinMo, BlackBerry, iPhone, Mac and Windows, and starting today, Android phones (Android netbooks too, if they ever appear). The apps are free, but you pay for storage, starting at $4.99 a month. You can try it free for 30 days, or keep it free w...

AutoVer's Got Your Back(up)

Fireworks, parades, unicorns made of ice cream, pleasant leprechauns doing amusing jigs; these things are fun. Backing up files is not. If you disagree with this you may be a loser. Check that, you are a loser. Or a network admin. Wait, that should read AND a network admin. Boring network geeks aside, backing up files is important. Much like prostate exams. Important, but painful. If you're not ba...
