BitTorrent Sync, the peer-to-peer secure Dropbox alternative, announced a brand new Android app today. As a bonus, it can also keep a version history of your files.

The new app is available for Android versions 2.2 and up (an iOS version will be coming later). The mobile application can sync files and folders on your phone with your desktop or any other devices you may have. Android users can download the new beta here, and everyone can get the desktop counterpart here.

The beta also adds SyncArchive, a new feature that keeps old versions of your files stored in a folder in case you need to go back in time and find something you’ve overwritten. Since BitTorrent Sync doesn’t use a central cloud, your old versions will be stored locally, so that storage space will come out of your own pocket.

    That sentence was so sweet to read. So sick of hearing about awesome apps that are planning to release an android version “some time in the future”
