Syncplicity is a Web application to synchronize data across multiple systems,
thus enabling several users to share and act on the data. It enables you to
backup your important documents, photos, and music online and access them

Also, you don’t need to be a file techie as sharing, backing up, and
synchronizing files is automatic and just takes a couple of minutes. Install it
on one computer, sync your data, and let others access it from the Syncplicity

For multiple users there is no need to upload it again and again. Just create
a new document in your computer and Syncplicity will automatically upload it
within minutes.

If multiple users are collaborating on a document there is no need to email
files back and forth, instead you can set up a shared folder in Syncplicity.
However, you can retrieve your files which you have created a few months ago and
deleted later. Simply go to the site and find it there, as your files are
already in Syncplicity, and others get access right away. And if they choose to
use the Syncplicity client, the files simply show up on their computers.

If you’re at a client site and you’re looking for an important file, simply
login to Syncplicity’s website and download your file. Make changes if you want
and upload it back. The edited version will be there on your computer.
Syncplicity transfers all your data using 128-bit SSL.

Finally you can use Web-based services like Scribd ( to view
documents online, Zoho ( to view and edit documents, and Picnik (
to edit your images. Another important aspect is that you can correlate your
Google Docs account with your Syncplicity account. Also you can automatically
upload your photos to your Facebook account.
