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.

If you’re an avid SugarSync fan, we’ve got some good news for you. Today, the application gets updated and enables full support for compatability with AutoSync on your videos. Initially the app only allowed support for photos, however, now you can easily sync between an array of devices as the app seamlessly works in the background to automatically gather your photos and videos. The only caveat is that you’ll require a good WiFi connection for the app to work. If you don’t already have the application, you can snatch it up on our popular apps database here or you can head on over to the Android Market for the download.

SugarSync is above and beyond your basic sync to the cloud applications. Introduced today was their new Android app that is the first to sync your photos to your SugarSync account simultaneously as you take your photos (truth be told there is an AutoSync option, where you can choose intervals, as short at every 15 minutes, via 3G or WiFi).There are absolutely no steps to this process. By doing this you have instant access to all of you files. SygarSync runs in the background, and uses its “AutoSync”. Hit the break for more.
