[prMac.com] Topeka, Kansas - GoodReader, named as 2010's #2 best-selling iPad app in the U.S., is now available with an amazingly simple-to-use Auto Sync feature which enables users to download documents or entire folders from remote servers and mark them to automatically synchronize. Changes made to documents in GoodReader will instantly be available for others to access on the remote server with a simple tap of the Sync button. Other key new features are the ability to download entire folders from remote servers, rather than only individual files, and support for SugarSync.
"This entire update to GoodReader is dedicated to the 'Live on the cloud' idea," said Yuri Selukoff, president of Good.iWare. "GoodReader's Auto Sync is a beautiful feature - with the touch of one button, several documents or folders from several different servers can be synced simultaneously and available to everyone with access to the folder."
The Auto Sync feature is a solution requested by companies that must push out identical documents to remote employees, such as airlines who must send thousands of pages of updates to all pilots or sales departments issuing product pricing catalogs to their sales teams. Now, GoodReader enables users to add/delete new files and folders to a synced folder, and with a simple tap on the "Sync" button all contents on the remote server will match that of GoodReader. Likewise, if a file is modified - such as annotating a PDF file - it will get uploaded to the remote server (or vice versa) during sync. This feature aims to improve collaboration among colleagues or with customers, enabling numerous people to simultaneously work on the same document.
The Auto Sync feature works with MobileMe iDisk, Dropbox, SugarSync, box.net, and any other WebDAV or FTP server.
With its support for SugarSync, GoodReader users have one more way of syncing their files remotely. SugarSync is a popular syncing and online backup service enabling individuals and businesses to organize, manage, share, and access all their files on-the-go. GoodReader also easily integrates with MobileMe iDisk, Google Docs, Dropbox, box.net and other popular servers.
"As services like GoodReader give users enhanced ability to view and navigate PDF documents on the go, the user demand for greater mobile access to documents increases," said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. "At SugarSync, we give users access to all of their data, anytime, anywhere and from any device. We're excited that this integration will give all GoodReader users easy access, synchronization and backup of their documents from both iPhone and iPad."
GoodReader's new ability to download entire folders from remote servers rather than just individual files is another great feature addition for remote workers who may otherwise have to manually download folders with dozens if not hundreds of documents. Since its release, the iPad version of GoodReader has achieved #1 in sales in the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Spain and many others.
