Reeder for iPad updated for iOS 4.2 with background syncing

Reeder, one of our must have apps for the iPad, has just received an update for iOS4.2. Finally, iPad users can take advantage of iOS4's multitasking capabilities, with Reeder able to complete its synchronization when running in the background. It's difficult to truly describe how useful this is going to be for users with large RSS lists, as it can take a good while to sync and cache all that...

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...

Synchtube: watch YouTube videos with friends in real time

One of the most fun things about YouTube is watching videos with your online friends, but it's tough to keep 2 or more friends in sync. Pre-YouTube, we used to call each other on the phone and try to start a tape in our VCRs at the same time. Fortunately, things have changed since then and now there's a tool to automatically sync up YouTube videos for multiple viewers: Synchtube. Synchtube...

Folder synchronization tool SyncToy hits version 2.1

It feels like it's been years since Microsoft released SyncToy 2.0. That's probably because it has been. But when you have a utility that's dead simple to use that lets you synchronize files between two folders, hard drives, or other storage media, why bother updating it? But SyncToy 2.0 wasn't exactly perfect, so Microsoft recently pushed out version 2.1 which features a handful of bug fixes and...

Synchronizing multiple Google calendars to iPhone

On today's This Week in Google, Gina Trapani presented a tip on how to synchronize your Google Calendar to iCal on a Mac. As it turns out, it is possible to subscribe to sub-calendars, but it's not immediately obvious how to do so. The same holds true on the iPhone. If you've attempted to synchronize your Google Calendar to your iPhone only to be disappointed that it only allows you to synchronize...

Xmarks testing bookmark, password sync for Google Chrome browser

Sure, Google began rolling out the ability to synchronize your bookmarks across various instances of the Google Chrome browser yesterday. And that means you can make sure that your bookmarks are up to date on your home and work computers, as well as your netbook, home theater PC, and any other machines you happen to have that are running Google Chrome. But what if you want to keep your Chrome...

Google Chrome to get browser synchronization

Google Chrome is a pretty slick web browser. It's fast, doesn't have a lot of toolbars cluttering the window, and runs each browser tab as a separate process which makes it harder to crash the whole browser. But there's one thing that's kept me from switching to Chrome full-time: The lack of a good way to synchronize your browser settings over the internet. If you use Firefox, you can install the...

New extension finally brings Google Bookmarks support to Chrome

When we first got a sniff of Chrome from the infamous comic book pages, most of us figured that a Google browser would feature tight integration with Google's web-based services. Though I guess if you count the metrics Google gathers via Chrome, that counts as a kind of integration. It's just not what we were looking for. What about things like Web History (which I still find just a tad creepy)...

Open source DirSync Pro syncs folders on any platform

With external hard drives being as cheap as they are, directory synchronization programs have become my preferred archiving method. DirSync Pro offers a fully-featured solution that is both open source and cross-platform. The app is coded in Java, so as long as your machine can handle .jar files you'll be able to run DirSync. While it's got plenty of advanced settings that can be used to modify...

Google Sync is using Microsoft ActiveSync push technology to...

Just install the plugin and any time you add or remove a bookmark from one computer the changes will be reflected on Firefox on any other computer you use.
