SugarSync introduces app for Windows 8 and Windows RT

SugarSync, the popular cloud storage solution, has announced that they're bringing apps to both Windows 8 and Windows RT. On top of all the features that SugarSync users already get, the new Windows apps bring some new features as well, such as Live Tiles, Snap View, and the ability to pin the app to the Start screen.

Once you login to the SugarSync app, you'll notice right away the design of the homescreen, which is obviously very Windows RT-esque. The homescreen shows all your folders that have been synced from your other devices and computers. Tapping on a folder will show you a view of all your sub-folders and files.

Another feature that SugarSync included is called Share Charms. This specifically makes it quicker and easier to share larger files from any Windows 8 device. Another feature is Snap View, which lets you keep SugarSync open while doing other tasks like browsing the web or chatting with a friend -- great for multi-taskers.

SugarSync for Windows 8 and Windows RT is available today for both platforms, and can be found by heading to the Windows Store. Both apps are free to download and free to use. You get 5GB of storage space right off the bat, but you can choose from a number of paid accounts if you need some extra storage.
