Sync Files Between PC and Android with Cheetah Sync

Every time I come home after my morning walk in the park, my Android smartphone is full of new pictures of flowers, trees, people and other random things that I observe in the morning. The pictures are exquisitely beautiful specially in the winter times when everything is covered with a layer of white snow. But then I have to look for my USB cable, which takes a considerable time as my little Chihuahua dog often runs away with it, so that I can copy the pictures to my notebook computer. I was looking for a way to to transfer the files without the USB cable when I stumbled upon Cheetah Sync. It is an Android app that can sync the selected folders on your computer and smartphone over the WiFi network.

You also have to install the PC software before you can actually sync the folders. The PC software is available for Windows and Mac. In the PC software configuration, you can choose the WiFi settings, but it is better to leave them untouched.
