Reviews From google play store

Cè un Bug in questa versione: le credenziali assegnate per l'accesso remoto via WebGUI spesso si resettono ritornando Random...rende di fatto impossibile accedervi da remoto. Per il resto tutto ok, le due stelle sono per attirare l'attenzione e risolvere il problema

Excellent app. I have total control of my syncs. UI is easy to use and the developer has thought of everything. I donated.


Sharing a single folder is a hassle. Good open source alternative to Resillo sync, but does not match the quality even with the free version.

Wish I could schedule periodic synchronization. Right now the only options are for sync when on certain WiFi networks or not at all.

Syncs files remotely and securely from phone and laptop to home PC without data mining by cloud storage services (it uses a discovery service to connect to your home PC). The docs are a bit weak, but trial and error are enough to get it up and running.

I'm using daily. Such a great application for syncing my notes and docs around.

This is a really great tool, if you get it to work. Unfortunately the user interface is atrocious. Since it requires a SyncThing installation on another device (e.g. your Windows PC) to work at all, you never know which side causes the problem. So, if something goes wrong, good luck figuring out how to fix it. I like the idea very much though. Not storing your data in a cloud service is the best option to keep it private.

Yep, just like everyone else is saying it drains your battery. I opened the app, left it with nothing set to backup yet and sure enough it's already showing up in my battery monitor the next day. It's using the battery to do literally nothing for me. What poor design.

Stay away from this nonsense if you don't want lose your files.

Android version of syncthing, awesome open source sync app

Great product and fairly well supported. The Android 10 problem was reported and responded to quickly and was fixed within days.

Wont let me choose a folder location outside of my downloads folded

Latest update fixed Android 10 issues. Works great again.

Best app in the business. Been a regular user. The latest 8 September update broke the app for me (android 9.0 One UI) . Crashes on launch. Had to revert to previous version. Edit: Looks like it got fixed with the new update. Thankyou devs :-D

Did not work on Lineage OS 14 (unofficial) [SM-T705]. Neat, Free and Private on Official Marshmallow [SM-T705].

9/10 - The app was a bit hard to set up and sometimes made duplicate copies of folders on my phone, or PC. Great app nonetheless, efficient in what it does. Sometimes does not connect to other devices unless restarted.

Thanks for a fantastic app devs!

Dev pushed out an update. Now works on Android 10! Thanks

Previous issue fixed within a few hours. Perfect.

Crashing on latest update Other than that 5 stars.

I can't open the app

I have been using this app for 3 months now and it was working perfectly untill last update on version I am on android 9, lineageos 16 and the app keeps crashing on opening. Tried every trick out there to make it work without success. If the problem is not fixed soon i will go back one version since it was working for me. Keep up the good work.

It works, but it's a power drain. I'm only syncing 80 KB of files that changes monthly

latest update app crashes on startup

Edited from 5 stars to 3 stars, doesn't work on android 10

Not functional on Android 10, but there's a fork that fixes that.

Doesn't work on Android 10

I had this working up until I upgraded to android 10. Im giving this 4 stars because when it was working it was great and easy to use. Hopefully they fix the issue with android 10 soon as ive seen multiplr users reporting that it wont start

Same issue not working on v10 never starts

Not working on Android 10. Constantly trying to start, but never completes.

I've been using it for about a year now, to sync my photos and music. It's also activity updated.

Bin sehr zufrieden!

Won't work without location access. There is no reason for it to ask for location access. Deleting.


Amazing app! 10 stars! Use it daily.

I'd give it six stars if I could. Does what it says quickly, efficiently and flawlessly. A superbly designed application, heartily recommended.

Not great. Great Web UI, but documentation is sparse to non existent, and it doesnt actuslly sync files, which is kind of the point of it. So its a bit like a beautiful car without an engine. Also it told me to turn of battery optimisation and proceeded to start draining my battery. 1 star for existing, 1 for nice web ui.

Absolut suberb for privacy and security.

Dark theme now? Yes! Using this app, I'm able to synchronize all of my devices and it's awesome.

Syncthing is super useful and a fantastic application. I use it to keep podcasts synced across devices so I can listen on the phone, tablet or PC at any time or place. The Android app is heavy on the battery, though, even with battery optimisation left on (which doesn't seem to hinder the sync features for me).


Nearly the perfect solution for me! But the most recent release prevents my phone from going to deep sleep. Now my battery drains roughly 5% per hour when the phone is idle.

Works perfectly. I sync about 20GB. Picks up new files fast.

Does not ask for write permissions for external SD card, and so is incapable of syncing files. What's the point of a syncing app that doesn't sync? Other apps have no problem writing to external SD card folders.

Works great in Samsung phones, but crashes every time I tried it on my HTC phone.

love the app, been using it for years now. would give it 5 stars if it didn't use 30% battery throughout the day

Will send only, and not receive, from an external SD card. This applies to all versions of Android on all phones. Whatever the developers say, this is the reality for all users who don't root their phones or follow a very complicated work around. Of course if you've got plenty of internal storage, this isn't a problem.

I use DirSyncPro (javascript, you have to plug the phone via usb to your pc) and this solves perfectly the issue... If only it weren't the greatest ram hog on my phone :( About 85-95MB. It uses even more ram than Dropbox.

best thing ever! secure, private, open source


Keeps telling me it's not configured to run, but I don't know what other conditions have to be changed. From the selection in the menu it should work..

Best sync app

Best file syncing app ever!

So far best app for auto sync files.

Very bad experience, difficult to understand. I deleted one the my picture folder. Never was able to sync. 0 documentation. not recomended

Nice app. would like to know if there can be option for selecting multiple files at once, and if possible option to go back to last updloaded directory path in the app. Thanks.


This is just awesome ! Replaced my sync tool (which stopped working on Android Pie) to keep my internal SD card backuped at all times. And it replaced my Dropbox between my Home and Work PC. Thanx a lot for this !!

Good good good

Works on Phone, Tablet, and Chromebook.

CPU sits between 6% and 20% when idle. Ridiculous. It went a bit mad last week and drained 3Gb (yes 3Gb) of mobile data trying to sync from server. Had thousands of reported files that were not synced when they were. Managed to sort it but not before I ran out of data. Set it to only sync on WiFi now but prior to this last update this wasn't necessary. You need to keep an eye on it so not ready for the big time. But there is no real alternative.

Has all the features I could wish for from a sync app.

better than Dropbox. I moved from resilio sync. no need to pay for additional storage. unlimited storage for free and works consistently on all my devices. too bad ios support is not there yet. thank you developers

Excellent in every respect. Why waste money on the likes of Dropbox. My desktops, laptops, phones & tablets all connected. Phone & Tablets automatically upload photos to the desktops. Easy to stream music. No messing about with dedicated servers. I am convinced most people will agree after trying it. (I have been working with computers since the 70s with mainframes)

Perfect if you're tech savvy!

Love this app. Have syncthing set up in multiple areas to sync my files across my pc and mobile devices. Works great, for keeping my encrypted vault in sync as well!

Great app. It's a brilliant way to synchronise files between my phone and my personal server.

awesome application!

cannot write to SD card except with the inconvieniont workarounds.

Sync data without having to trust other servers. I use synching to share files that I don't want to put on other servers. Once it's set up it will sync files in the background. I also use this to keep my keepass database synced between devices.

I love this app. Fully decentralized multi device synchronization, excellent! I use it to synchronize my mobile photos (send only) to my desktop (receive only, with Ignore Delete enabled in the Advanced settings), synchronizing my Joplin notes between two mobile devices and my desktop, and synchronizing my RSS feeds using spaRSS DecSync on my mobile devices and FeedReader (only RSS reader with DecSync support) on my desktop. What stops it from getting a 5 star rating is that, while not difficult, it's too arcane to set up for non techie users; you wouldn't give this to your parents without setting it up for them. The UI could do with a serious redesign to make it more user friendly. I've also experienced one issue where one of my mobile devices suddenly stopped synchronizing. Removing and readding it solved the problem, but that shouldn't happen.

Excellent, reliable, fast

Always showing Error ( folder marker missing) any solution???

perfect. great work

nok on android NO WRITE ON EXT SD, so not usable*** it can create a directory , but no write access !!!*** other like dropsync can write to extsdcard *** repLy from developper : I can write to SD*** Is it an answer : no ==> app removed***

fan of the project since early hours, I ay c accross machines operating system and continents :-)

Great app, but buggy.

doesn't work on Android Q. can this be fixed. overall this is an excellent sync tool.

Still not perfect but it's slowly getting there. For those interested in using it, the main problem is that fact that it's neither seamless nor guaranteed. Connections between mobile devices and mobile and desktop devices tend to break on the phones end. Even between desktops connections aren't always stable. Again, when it works it works flawlessly - but it still doesn't work 100% of the time.

a must have

Feature Request 1. Dark theme would be nice addition. 2. The icon behavior should also include an option to directly open the default or selected sync folder. (Dropbox Style) Its a well made application. Great work Syncthing Community.

One of yves must have apps on any of my devices. Period.


Thanks for perfect solutions, but I cannot write to my directories on ExtSDcard on my new phone with And 8.1.+. In other apps I can give access, in Syncthing I have not this options. I have big SDcard, no free space in phone. Sorry for my engl. Thanks.

It's excellent to run my own owronanal cloud that can sync the data between my computers and some folders between my phone and pc.


One of two sync apps I use (the other is Resilio).Very robust,though somewhat complex.Currently syncs about 40gb between 3 phones and two pc's.

Fantastic app. It will get a 5 start review when it supports writing on SD cards, but even without it, it is still one of the most useful application on my phone.

EXCELLENT!!!! I have a simple need that this app took care of with ease. Within a few minutes of installing, it began the transfer -no hassles. Thank you Devs!

Synchronise all your devices on an add-hoc basis across operating systems- you can select which folders you want access to from which mobile/ tablet/ laptop or deskop. Install & forget.

Yikes - deleted all files on phone in Linked folders - one way synch as sender - when connected device went off line. Appreciate that developers make these things but this seems far too risky and unstable for my liking. No evident logs. Jeffrey on 4/2/19 reports similar data deletion.

Almost perfect

Great sync tool. Completely replaced Resilio Sync and I'm not looking back.

Is this app being used as a bitcoin miner? I'm seeing over 29 unencrypted connections to this app from mutiple addresses. Can the developer expain what this is about?

awesome. ty

Excellent, just one idea: prevent the photos from being deleted on the receiving device when deleted in the phone. Thanks for the quick reply. A bit confused here: can you be a bit more specific? Do you mean the Settings-Ignore Pattern of the receiving device´s settings? Or the Android app? Just paste "ignoreDelete" there?

amazing service! I can sync my text based note files across multiple devices without any problem.

Best way to sync files across devices in a decentralized architecture with no need to any cloud service. Thank you, Syncthing community!

I added 38gb of files on a synced folder in my PC, and now whenever I open this app to try to sync the folder on my phone, my phone crashes! what gives? EDIT: My phone has 4GB of RAM (Mi A2 Lite, 64gb version)


requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read sync settings
Allows the app to read the sync settings for an account. For example, this can determine whether the People app is synced with an account.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.
