Over a year ago, DocSync was founded by R. Paul Singh (News - Alert) as a response to the “tablet revolution.” He realized that mobile devices were presenting new challenges from a different perspective. While tablets were not the best devices for content creation – most of us prefer at least something with a physical keyboard – they were ideally suited for content creation. But Singh did not feel there was an adequate solution for him to access, search and act on all of his content from anywhere.
Thus, DocSync was born. The company was designed to answer the question, “Is your life going to belong in the box?” Singh saw that as people used cloud storage services, such as Box and Dropbox (News - Alert), there was a need for an app to help organize and keep track of all kinds of documents on these platforms as well as those files stored locally.
With DocSync, you don’t have to think about where something is, you can use it to search your computer, your e-mail attachments and your cloud storage locations. Even when you are not connected to the Internet, DocSync will search the metadata of file names, but when connected it will search document content as well. You can use the “Go to My Clouds” feature to search folders on Google (News - Alert) Docs and Dropbox; you can create project folders and move documents with a simple drag; you can even get daily reports on all your files and documents.
The iPad version of DocSync was added to the Apple (News - Alert) app store in May. Since then, Singh has been incorporating customer feedback in an effort to make the app more user-friendly and to add features that users want to see. He envisions an Android (News - Alert) version of the app in the future, and a version for the iPhone down the road.
The app is free to download and offers 128-bit encryption, and the in-app forum allows users to have their voices heard. In a crowded marketplace of remote access and cloud providers, DocSync fills a particular niche and, according to Singh, those who have used it love it, and they may have finally found a way to live outside of the box.
