SugarSync has released the lastest version of their cloud storage and synching application for BlackBerry. SugarSync v1.5 now includes the ability to stream music direct from their servers to your BlackBerry device. This is of course in addition to the other added features for the app as noted in the press release:
SugarSync for BlackBerry features the ability to remotely access, open and easily share your computer files, including documents, photos and more stored in a SugarSync account. With an appropriate document editor, files can be edited as well and synced back.
With the new version, people may stream non-DRM protected music - synced from their computers to the cloud – directly to their BlackBerry handheld device, and save local storage for favorite tunes, photos, videos, and more. The built-in music player enables people to play full sets, not just single songs.
The new version also includes email auto-complete, a time-saver feature which allows people to even more quickly share a files with colleagues or friends, as well as performance enhancements and bug fixes.
Lately, I have become quite a fan of cloud storage applications. With SugarSync adding music streaming to the list of offerings, it will push them beyond other services such as Evernote. When you sign up, you get 2GB of storage allocated to you for free with larger packages available for purchase starting at only $4.99/mnth.
