  1. Just learned something new... With "Automatic sync" off, if you select a file from the host the file is downloaded to your device and will remain so long as the file on the host is not changed. If you change the host file, the file on the mobile device is removed from BTS's listing (in the app itself) but the old file remains on the mobile device. If you change the file on the mobile device, the host is updated and the file on the mobile device remains in the listing of the BTS app. Do wish these things were documented.
  2. I was trying to figure this out as well! First I looked for some documentation on how BTS is supposed to work on mobile devices but there is very little. Seriously, BTS for mobile devices needs a comprehensive manual like the desktop product. As for the "remove a file from the mobile device without removing it from the host" issue, this needs to be addressed ASAP (assuming it hasn't been already). All I have to do is mistakenly touch a 1GB file and I'm screwed. Very frustrating...
  3. I've used several P2P syncing apps in the past but they went by the wayside or grew to be very expensive. For the past couple years I've been using GoodSync (GS) and have been quite happy with it. However, when I learned of BitTorrent Sync (BTS) I just had to give it a try. Today I ran a few "low tech" tests to see how the two products compared. Here's what I found when transferring 1108 files totaling 406MB: Time To Transfer Over The Web BTS = 12 Minutes GS = 28 Minutes Time To Transfer Over A LAN BTS = 10.5 Minutes GS = 0.75 Minutes Memory Use BTS = 4.9MB GS = 9.9MB I'm thrilled with the feature set of BTS but the "over a LAN" transfer rate seems awfully slow. I'll give it another try in case something was amiss.
