There are so many challenges that mobile professionals face. The
devices are small. Battery power is not long enough. Reception is
spotty at times. Shall I go on?
I’ve been using htc’s Tilt 2
(AT&T network) in addition to my htc Ozone (Verizon Wireless

SugarSync does a few things VERY well.
Device Synchronization: Keep files and folders in
sync and up-to-date across all devices: desktops, laptops, netbooks,
smartphones, iPhones and more. Change a file on device “A” and seconds
later it’s automatically updated on device “B”. This works fast and
Automatic Cloud Backup: Back up files, photos and
more to the Internet automatically and instantly, with many granular
settings for control and customization. I’ve used Carbonite
for two years to backup my data and a few months ago Carbonite enabled
remote access to these backed up files. However, SugarSync offers many

Collaboration, Workshare, Group Editing, Versioning:
Share individual files or entire folders of documents, media files (IE
music, movies, photos etc), and more with co-workers co-workers, family
or friends – all over the Internet. Collaborate with multiple remote
users, edit in real-time and sync with other folder members, and revert
to previous versions on the fly.
In addition to sharing individual files, you can share files
automatically to Twitter or Facebook and have the files shared with an
automatic link to the SugarSync stored document. Quite neat.
SugarSync is quite affordable too:
