With BitTorrent Sync for iPhone, you can sync and share files between multiple devices using P2P technology, providing file transfers at maximum speed and with unlimited storage.

Features of BitTorrent Sync

BitTorrent Sync for iPhone is the perfect addition for those already using the BitTorrent Sync application for Windows or Mac, a system based on P2P sharing using secret keys (long alphanumeric codes).

The app for iPhone is based on the same system, but encloses the keys in QR codes, allowing you to synchronize files between multiple devices (PC-mobile or mobile-mobile) easily and quickly.

BitTorrent Sync for iPhone offers three functions:

Sync: Synchronizes your mobile device's shared files with your PC via BitTorrent Sync (desktop version). To do this, choose the folder you want to sync on your iPhone, then scan the QR code generated by the PC or Mac BitTorrent Sync (Connect Mobile option). This starts the synchronization of the content.

Send: Allows you to send or receive files using QR codes to another smartphone that is running BitTorrent Sync for iPhone.

Backup: Back up photos and videos from your phone to your PC.

Sync operations are performed using a direct P2P connection, providing a high speed file transfer. Data security is ensured by an encryption algorithm with 256-bit encryption.

In order to economize the use of your phone’s battery, you can set the program to stop synchronization if the remaining power is less than a pre-determined percentage limit.

A simple and easy to use interface

BitTorrent Sync for iPhone has a nice interface organized in a simple way. The three main functions, Sync, Send and Backup, are all accompanied by a concise explanation. Program options are only available through iPhone settings, and current sync speed, both upload and download, is conveniently located at the bottom of the interface.

Unlimited sharing

Because BitTorrent Sync does not rely on an external server and uses P2P file sharing, there is an unlimited capacity for storing and sharing files.

Our tests had good sync speed, but much depends on the quality of the connection used. Due to the high volume of traffic that the app can generate, BitTorrent Sync allows you to define whether or not you want to use the device's data connection to synchronize files. If you uncheck this option, the program will perform the sync only in the presence of Wi-Fi networks.

Conclusion

BitTorrent Sync allows you to share and synchronize files quickly and easily. The use of P2P delivers high speed syncing and the algorithm of data protection to 256-bit encryption ensures the safety of files during transfer.

BitTorrent Sync for iPhone is a perfect complement for those who already use the desktop version. The use of QR codes makes it easy to send files to other devices and synchronize content with your PC.
