BitTorrent Sync Gets Updated With iPad and iOS 7 Support [video]


Back in August, BitTorrent has released BitTorrent Sync, a new P2P-based Dropbox competitor app for iOS. The service also comes localized into ten languages, including Spanish, Chinese and German.

The app allows users move big files between devices, not unlike what you do with Dropbox, Bitcasa and other cloud-based storage systems — except that BitTorrent’s P2P distribution architecture means that nothing is “stored” in any cloud that can be accessed.

You can use it to back up photos from your iPhone to your laptop, or use it to send files from you iPad to your home computer. As with the desktop and Android versions, there is no file-size limit. In a sense, adding the iOS support is a natural extension of the original premise of Sync: being able to access your data regardless of device or location.

BitTorrent Sync has been updated today to v1.2.29 which brings iOS 7 UI compatibility and it now becomes an universal app. Check out a full changelog below…

  • Added version for iPad
  • Design changes and iOS7 compatibility
  • Ability to send and sync files in other apps via Sync
  • Save pictures and video from sync folders to Camera Roll
  • Improved connection speed
  • Other fixes and improvements

BitTorrent Sync is available as a free universal app ( iPhone and iPad ) on the App Store
