"Major flaw - no two way sync"

Overall the app has major potential. Average UI and simple. Decent save one extremely significant flaw. The 4Shared folder (created only after downloading a file) does not have a two-way sync function. In other words, if you place a file in that folder, the 4Shared app does not recognize this as a new file that needs to be synchronized. There aren't any settings to change this either, so basically, you would have to do the upload manually, which with 100GB could take over a year at the current upload speeds. I could manually drag and drop to get things started and that would work great if the app would then monitor the folder for changes and synchronize things automatically, but it doesn't.

I'm glad I discovered this before I pulled the trigger on the upgrade. Without this function, the whole 4Shared system went from revolutionary to moderately helpful. I guess I'll be sticking with SugarSync for my Android needs.

Pros
  • Can access all of your 4Shared files/data from the phone
  • Can search all of 4Shared for files, apps, music, etc.
Cons
  • Cannot sync data from phone automatically (no linking to SD folders)
  • Uploading manually takes hours for large files such as .apks
  • No 4Shared folder on the SD before first download
