Syncables 360 7

Thanks to the new version’s cool new features like Wi-Fi sync for Android and Blackberry phones, and wireless media streaming over your home of office network now, Syncables 360 stands out among some stiff competition, winning our TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award. This program will automatically sync files, folders, documents, media and browser bookmarks between two or more computers or smartphones or multiple computers on a network and backup your data to ensure that it’s safe. Additionally, this program allows you to take your data with you wherever you go and access it on any computer via a removable storage device. Given its support for smartphones, security features and email clients like Outlook, Syncables 360 was a natural fit for our top spot in the category of sync software.

Features

In our tests, Syncables 360 does exactly what it claims to—allows you to access the data from one computer on any other computer. With this program, you can keep all of your data—from documents to email to video—updated and available on any Syncables 360-enabled computer. We were impressed with how easy it was to install and configure this program for use across a network. We think the program is particularly useful for netbook users that have a need to quickly and regularly sync data between their home, mobile and work machines. This program automates just about anything you want and runs right on start up so you don’t have to fiddle with settings every time you want to run a sync. If you want to make syncing your data even more easy, Task Assistant wizards can break the process down into three easy steps.

In addition to keeping your data current across a network, you have the option of manual sync using an external storage device like a USB flash drive or external hard drive. While hauling an external storage device around can be a bit of hassle, you’re probably already carrying a smartphone in your pocket. Syncables 360 is configured to take advantage of the memory on board BlackBerry or Windows Mobile phone. Users can now wirelessly sync media and contacts between mobile phones and computers.

If you’re upgrading to Windows 7 in the near future, Syncables 360 does an excellent job with data migration. You simply select the data you want transferred and this program will move it all—documents, spreadsheets, Outlook contacts, etc.—with just a few mouse clicks. You don't have to worry about the data being in the format you need because this program's Roundhouse technology converts all of your media, bookmarks, contacts and email into the format that's compatible with the phone or computer you're using.

Syncables 360’ network synchronization options are ideal for media enthusiasts. Any computers on a network with this program installed can stream media, transfer files or automate syncs. This program has sharing options for network sharing and synchronization—privacy controls allow you to share what you want with who you want.

In our day and age, nearly everyone spends a bit of time on social networking sites sharing photos, videos and other media. Syncables 360 is a handy accessory for anyone with a connected lifestyle. With this program, you’re directly connected to sites you use and can upload photos or media without entering your username and password. When you sign into this program, you’re automatically signed into YouTube, Facebook, SmugMug and Flickr. With this program, uploading media to your online social spaces becomes a simple drag-and-drop affair.

Syncables 360 features excellent support for email to ensure that you’re in contact with the world no matter what computer you’re using.

Mac or Linux users will be pleased to learn that this program runs on OS X 10 and is equipped for Ubuntu. Users working across platforms will want to take a look at Syncables 360 Premium—it costs only ten dollars more and allows you to sync files between PC, Mac and Linux-based systems.

Ease of Use

In contrast to some of the other sync software we tested, Syncables 360 was configured and up in running within minutes. You won’t have to navigate confusing menu trees or spend an afternoon tinkering with advanced options when using Syncables 360. The interface is straightforward and doesn’t burden end users with technical jargon.

Home users won’t usually have a need to conduct full bidirectional, real time synchronizations, however, in the event that this is an important feature for you, keep in mind the fact that Syncables 360 will not automatically delete files on your home system if you delete them while working on another computer. The same is true of Outlook or Thunderbird emails.

Support and Documentation

Syncables 360 is easy-to-use and reliable so you probably won’t encounter many problems. But, in the event that you do run into unexpected hang-ups or confusion, you can find thorough FAQs and support information on Syncables 360’s home page. Users can also submit a ticket to tech support professionals.

Summary

Given the fact that it doesn’t mirror files or delete files during a synchronization, Syncables 360 is probably not an ideal solution for small business owners coordinating massive projects over a network. But, with support for BlackBerry and Android phones, Syncables 360 is an ideal solution for individual users working on a number of computers and devices. Further, Syncables 360 is an ideal utility for automating syncs and sharing data over a network. Factor in the program’s smooth integration with popular websites like Facebook and its everyday usability is all the more clear. Whether travelling, coordinating between home and work or simply safeguarding your data, Syncables 360 is an ideal program for keeping your data safe, up-to-date and accessible.
