Treat Ios Like Dropbox Does?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I love Btsync on my main computers and would like to have it on my iphone.

 

However my sync is around 70 gigs and my phone is 16. Drop box has a similar amount of files in it and uses 70megs on my phone, I let sync get to 1.5gigs before I concluded that its actually syncing all the files to my phone.

 

So my feature request is to treat IOS like dropbox does, i.e. a file listing is presented but nothing is downloaded unless you select it.

 

Because of how BTsync works now on iphone I have sadly had to remove it.

Hi thanks for this. Is the default state? I removed sync reinstalled and qrcoded my folder and the settings say its not set to auto sync anyhow.

 

It had risen to 1.2 gigs when I deleted but I have reinstalled and its settled on 35megs for now, so I shall see how it goes.

I believe the default state is for auto-sync to be off - and so it's likely that you inadvertently turned it on at some point, which then caused your iOS device to try to download the entire contents of the folder you were syncing.

 

Anyway, I'll now close this thread, as the functionality you desire does exists in the iOS app, and therefore isn't a "feature request"
