    BitTorrent Sync Available for Windows Phone

    This will be a sweet addition to WP8.1

    BitTorrent Sync promises to allow users to share data and files with one another, but still own that data. It offers secure, unlimited file-syncing without requiring a third-party cloud. Your files are never stored on servers, so no NSA eyes will fall on it. You can also access your files anywhere. Create a Sync folder and you’ll be able to access it on any computer, phone or tablet. There’s also no limit on file sizes. Which means you can send files that range in kilobytes to terabytes.

    Ok, so I have spent some time here with BitTorrent Sync
    And it does work. I can sync between all of my systems to one location,, which is cool, an always on PC


    Due to the Security Limitations with cross app access on WP, it can be a bit limiting when it comes to documents.
    Right now, there is no real access to Video/Pix or Music. But it says that is coming.


    You can place a doc in the Sync folder on your main Sync PC, or other devices that you have setup to sync (ie; Surface Pro) (excluding WP).
    The file will show up everywhere (including your WP), you can open it on the phone and then save it to the phone
    This will place it in the Office Hub.
    But you can not save or share or move anything from the Office Hub to the BitTorrent Sync folder (due to the security limitations)

    This is the same though for all File Managers on the WP. They are limited to utilizing the phones free space only within their App space.

    So, this is a good thing, and this is what makes the WP OS So secure.
    But, it's a bad thing, cause it limits what you can really do with your device when it comes to using a different app for synching

    I love the fact that BitTorrent Sync exists, this is what I was hoping to see.
    A secure sync tool that would only talk to my PC's and not the cloud.
    This eliminates many issues people have with Cloud services and provides an excellent alternative.

    BitTorrent Sync works, regardless of the limitations, it is still useful at this time
    I hope it will get better and more robust over time.
