3 Ways to Share Files Using Sync 1.4

Just recently, Bittorrent released Sync 1.4, an peer-to-peer sharing app, that make sharing files and folders with others rather easy.

Now, if you aren’t familiar with Sync 1.4, here are 3 ways by which you can share files across your devices:

#1: Photos

Placing your photos on Google, Microsoft and Facebook and so on and so forth is easier when using this app. First, create a folder with a name of your choice and then add it to Sync 1.4 as well by selecting the Select folder and Add folder options. Make sure that whoever you share this with also has Sync 1.4 on their device.

#2: Music

If you don’t use Spotify or Google Drive for your music, Sync 1.4 can come in handy as well. Create a new folder and add it to Sync. Hover the mouse pointer over the shared folder and select QR Code. Leave it open.

Now download VLC from Google Play and open Sync from your Android phone. Go to Settings and Advanced and uncheck the Simple mode. Scan for the QR mode that was left open earlier while also adding the folder on your PC to your Android phone. From here on, any music you drop into that folder will also be available on your phone.

#3: Messages

You can also set up a basic messaging system using Sync where you can share files, messages as well as documents too. For this, start a folder titled “[Your Name] Inbox”. Add that folder to Sync and share it with friends and family. Just remember that whoever you share your inbox with will have complete access to its contents. In order to avoid this, you can create a number of folders for different people or use OpenPGP to encrypt these messages.
