BitTorrent Releases Sync, Its First Consumer Product - Personal Tech News - WSJ

Sync different

"After about two years in development, BitTorrent’s Sync is now available to the public as a “freemium” product. It marks BitTorrent’s biggest move yet to change its image from a company that makes popular piracy technologies into one that makes legit consumer apps.

Sync lets people share and synchronize large files across their computers, phones and tablets, just like other competing “personal cloud” services. But where Sync differs is that it never makes its users upload files to a remote server. Instead, Sync uses BitTorrent’s peer-to-peer file-sharing technology to move files directly between devices and PCs. As with any good cloud service, Sync’s apps are available on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and even Windows Phone."
