    "As a person who works on multiple devices, having a solution to sync files over multiple devices is an important resource. Based on a recommendation I tried Goodsync which is available on both Windows and OsX. While the software does get the job done, I have to admit that I was not too impressed with the user interface. Also the software comes with a $30 price tag. I think I will keep shopping around for a solution."

    "Used this for a moment, It is not really at all what I was looking for. It does have plenty of options for you if you just want to use Windows or Linux. However I was looking for something for all my devices including my Macbook, and Android Cell Phones, as well as Tablets. Keep in mind these are not supported. Wouldn't recommend if you need access to your files on these devices! Also needs Java, an old outdated platform much like this application."

    "I use different platforms, even in my home. If you want people to buy this offer something no one else can or is, a way to use this with any and all files. Not that I can use it from mac to mac but windows to iphone would be really helpful to me. I prefer my laptops windows but I do not prefer windows for my phones and tablets. Giving me a way to sync all these devices would be awesome. chrome is the only thing that comes close but i still cant transfer files between."

    "I have a large collection of files I like to have with me at all times, so they always end up on multiple devices. And, of course, they are always out of sync with each other. AllwaySync helps address that and keeps everything up to date. The only thing missing is support for Android... if there were a way to sync everything onto my phone too, I'd use this all the time."

    "Some people own a lot of Garmin products, like smartwatches, GPS devices etc. This is the hub where you go to sync them all together. The program is so easy to use and it syncs in minutes. Just love the way its just a one button process."
