Review: Share, sync files & documents between devices with OmniPresence for Mac

Access the same files on all of your devices using an intuitive interface and reliable service that comes with OmniPresence for Mac.

OmniPresence for Mac includes a well-designed user interface and all of the features expected in a program to sync documents and files across multiple devices. The accompanying free account with the developer's Web server makes it easy to sync for free, and even includes the ability to drop files into the cloud via e-mail.

After the installation process completes, the program can be accessed via a small icon that sits in your menu bar. The program's initial menu walks the user through the process of setting up the service. The small window contains a clear color scheme and well-labeled buttons, contributing to its ease of use. To its advantage over other applications, OmniPresence for Mac gives users the option to use their own Web server, if available. For those without one, the application prompts a sign-up for Omni Sync Server on the developer's Web site. This Web service does not have an obviously listed storage limit, which is an advantage over other competing services. If requested, users can also receive an e-mail address where files can be sent, automatically storing them in the cloud. On the computer, the program creates a folder where documents can be saved for uploading. This allows them to be accessed on other devices with the same application installed, including iPhones and iPads. The uploaded files worked smoothly during testing and were available in the cloud when needed.

With its features, including those available on the accompanying Web server, OmniPresence for Mac represents a great choice for those looking to store files for access across multiple devices.
