BitTorrent Sync coming to iOS this week
I have been using BitTorrent Sync between my desktop and laptop since it debuted in private alpha form. The service has since matured to beta, and now ages a bit more as it spreads to another platform -- iOS, after landing on Android last month.
"Today, we’re happy to report that BitTorrent Sync is now available for iOS devices on the App Store. iOS fans: you can now sync freely", the company reports.
Beyond this latest move to another platform, the organization also unveiled localization efforts to get into additional markets. The latest version of the BitTorrent Sync Beta will be available across ten languages, including German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) and Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal).
BitTorrent prides itself on the fact that your files should be secure and it promises that Sync skips the cloud to deliver files faster, and safer. The service doesn’t rely on servers, which are vulnerable to hacks and prying eyes.
The service will be rolling out this week, so do not fret if you can't yet find it on iTunes just yet, as it will be there soon enough. There is no word on when the service will find its way out of beta.
