SugarSync announces 2.0 Beta, major overhaul to cloud based file service

Today SugarSync announced the release of the public beta for SugarSync 2.0. The new version is a major update to the cloud based file storage service. The public beta announced today includes versions for Windows and Mac computers along with the mobile version for Android devices. iOS, Windows and other mobile platform users will have to wait a bit longer to get the new beta version.

SugarSync has implemented a number of improvements, including an overhauled user interface. Even the web version closely mirrors the application. SugarSync makes it much easier to drag and drop folders onto the app so they will sync across devices. Sharing has been improved as well, again implementing a drag and drop interface that will let users share folders just by dropping a folder or file on a contact’s name. SugarSync has enabled cloud search and a new SugarSync Drive will show up on your computer.
