Need attention by the company
IPads and iOS is not this company’s focus at all, nor is usability. They play the “security” card as a reason for all the missing features. They have only done a single feature update in a year and it was a small viewing change! Nothing exciting. They have yet to even integrate some of the great feature of iOS 12, i.e. files app integration. Nothing for 13. They barely works with the files app built into iOS. You will usually find you have to open the app to make it usable. The offline files are often not offline and have to be redownloaded, I have run into this numerous times and reported it to no avail. If you view the version history you will see only bug fixes month after month, and this bug has existed for 2 years! You also can’t stream video’s from the app like ANY other file syncing software. You will have to download it outside the app to stream it to a appleTV or other device. Essentially anything modification or use of a file will require you to save it outside the app, locally or another sync app, and then put it back if you make any changes. This app is a shame, they could have good privacy and a good app, but they have decent privacy, which is not difficult to implement, and an awful user experience. They are not worth the money. Find another app, I am looking for one now after using them for over 2 years I have finally just given up hope they will get better.
Looked Like A Promising Dropbox Replacement
Dropbox can’t be trusted, so I came across Sync in my search for an alternative. It looks good on paper, and the design is clean and simple, fairly intuitive. However where it falls flat, and I mean dead flat, is I’ve had a couple instances of destructive data loss from sync failures (as in synchronization). Thank goodness I had those files backed up elsewhere, as they weren’t recoverable via Sync’s file recovery feature. Second, there is an arbitrary sharing limitation of the number of folders (not users, total folders) that can be involved in sharing with other users. So even if you share with a single other user, as soon as one of you creates more than a couple folders within a shared folder, those folders and all the files contained within are not shared. There’s not even a notification telling you why, so you’ll likely be frustrated trying to figure out what’s going wrong. This is plain stupidity by the company, because I was in the middle of converting my sixth friend/family member over to Sync from Dropbox when I discovered this limitation that renders the entire service useless to me. Since then not only have I not told anyone else about Sync, but I moved all 6 of those people back onto our shared Dropboxes (now using Cryptomator for sensitive files). Oh well, their loss.
I have tried in vain to upload files using the desktop website, and it is horrid and dysfunctional. Files upload much slower than other providers and transfers often break or present errors halfway through. I have had this service for a couple of months on a paid plan. I have a couple hundred gigabytes of data that have been waiting for months to upload to Sync. I have tried to upload to Sync using Sync’s website, desktop app, and (desperately) even mobile, and every single time it errors out. This has been done via different ISPs with speeds ranging up to 100+ MB/sec, yet everytime, upload speeds are painfully slow and the transfers error out. I agree with a previous reviewer’s sentiment that for all the features present, Sync really is not worth the pain inflicted. I have been giving them money for a months or three now, but if I cannot upload my data, the features this service provides are just useless.
App needs some work
Listing directories and downloading files keeps getting slower and slower. In fact, I can’t even download anything at the moment. It just hangs forever on two iOS devices. Net connection is good. Sync between Macs seems fine. Seems isolated to the app. File integration on iOS is hit or miss between versions. Sometimes it works... other times it doesn’t. There are times where I’ve even lost data trying to save a document in Excel. I have to open a copy of the file in Excel, then copy it back to sync to be sure I’m losing any data. It’s really too bad, this service is otherwise awesome... it makes zero knowledge cloud storage very easy to use. I hope the mobile app gets fixed soon!
Best so far
I have used dropbox for many years, and it’s not that I dislike them I just didn’t like the price. I found sink and they seem to be just as good with a cheaper rate. I did not like that my computer was jamming up with all my files when I got dropbox specifically to store files safely off my computer. Their option for solving that problem would have cost me more money. With Sync, this option is already included in the lower price. I have been using Sync for about a month and so far I am perfectly happy.
App works as well as expected
I use Sync on various devices so I don’t understand the negative reviews. I also don’t know why they did not email the support team. I am a paying user and am looking to upgrade with Sync as needed in the future. The experience isn’t perfect but it is largely hassle-free. If you’re tired of other services and are looking for great pricing, look no further than Sync. You can store up to 4TB for $200 a year and 20TB with two accounts for $400.
The application is beautiful and wonderful but the worst thing is that it does not support play of videos without downloading and does not support 3D touch
I was planning on purchasing a subscription but I was EXTREMELY disappointed to find out that video files cannot be viewed in the app on my phone, tablet or the website. I was looking for a good service to back up files especially the tons of videos on my phone off my child. What is the use of this service if to see the videos u have to download them? The entire purpose of wanting to buy this was to free up space on my devices. I can view videos in the Google drive, Dropbox and pcloud app. Why wouldn't u have this feature? Smh
I would trade my left Kidney for Sync
I love this app/service. It is the only end-to-end encrypted, convenient, amazingly designed and organized storage app out there- I don’t trust Google or Apple to store my data and keep it safe from hackers, law enforcement or advertisers. I’m a 20-year-old college student and it integrates perfectly into my life. If you guys send me a t-shirt I’ll rep it
No Search Feature Still!!!!! 🤦♂️
Sooooooo I was waiting on waiting on the much needed search feature to be added thinking to myself they must have to add that as it’s basically like the most important feature needed because how else are you going to find something out of thousands of files, butttttt nopeeeee not yet and makes me think they aren’t going to add that!!!! 🤔 Love the APP but I cannot use the thing with no search feature!!!!! 🤢🤮 Seriously I have in one folder 3,645 pdf files and there is no way I can, when I need something, scroll through all to find what it need!!!! Please add the simple/much needed search feature for the love of &@$!!!!!!!! The APP would be that much more useful and to me, actually useful as I can’t use it now/yet!!!!!
Needs the ability to stream and bug fixes
It would be great to stream videos instead of having to download the entire thing. Also, the app is constantly crashing when trying to view a photo. I almost regret this purchase. Not sure if the zero-knowledge encryption is even worth a subpar app. Desktop ui is subpar as well compared to competitors.
This is the real deal!
So much better than the competition. Left Dropbox after many years and not looking back. Fast response time when I did have questions with their tech support.
Useless on iOS 13
Background photo sync of camera roll which is the main reason I use this app no longer works unless the app is open. Have been dealing with support for weeks now and they have no clue. The app also feels like something made by an intern for an older version of ios so it could be a lack of updates that is causing the break in functionality.
Works like a charm
Does everything that Dropbox does, but end to end encrypted. Does everything that Tresorit does, but with less fanfare, and for less than half of the price.
Made duplicates of all my data on my phone
This happened to me with MEGA too and I don’t know how to fix it, but when I start uploading photos/videos, it copies the data and stores it on my phone. I can see all the files on the website, but I have no idea why it duplicates everything taking up unnecessary space on my phone. In my opinion, completely defeats the purpose of the app.
