Insync: A Google Docs-Loving Dropbox Rival

If you’re the kind of person who uses Google Docs and Dropbox a lot, perhaps for business, as is becoming increasingly popular, then you will be interested to hear that Asian firm Insync has just announced that its cloud-based sharing platform is available for free. How it works The service provides cloud-based storage for files but it specialises in Google Docs, allows users to easily sync, update and share documents between others. Its user interface is a neat alternative to Google’s own interface which turns your virtual docs into ‘physical’ files that are housed on your PC or Mac, making them infinitely more accessible and easier to view than through the standard Web interface. Shortly after loading, it will request access to your Google account, from which it creates a new ‘Dropbox’ folder which contains physical copies of all the files on your Google Docs account. The rest is easy, as Insync updates your Google Docs account with any changes you make to the files on your PC or Mac.
