BitTorrent Sync Mobile now lets you create, edit, and share files

Analysts have been predicting for a few years now that pretty soon, everyone will be on the cloud. But one thing that has been preventing some from actually going there are the security risks and of course, the limited amount of free storage you get. The arrival of the BitTorrent Sync app last year has enabled users to share large files without the cloud but through peer 2 peer sharing, but they could only view said files. But now, the newest update to the app gives you the power to create and edit, aside from just sharing files though the app.

BitTorrent launches paid file sharing app, platform agnostic

So you’re at your friend’s wedding, happily snapping pictures and candid memories on your new LG G4 with the very nice camera. After the wedding, your friend asks if she could have a copy of your pictures, as their photographer forgot to take candid shots of the guests – and you have a lot of those, hundreds of photographs. Aside from remembering not to hire this particular wedding photographer, what do you do? How do you quickly and securely transfer hundreds of high resolution photos to your friend’s phone, which is unfortunately an iPhone 6? BitTorrent thinks it has the answer to these situations with the BitTorrent Shoot app.
