Update: in one month BitTorrent Sync's userbase doubled. It jumped from 1 million users in November to 2 million users in December.
BitTorrent recently announced that more than 1 million people are now using its cloud-free syncing tool, BitTorrent Sync.

The announcement that BitTorrent Sync crossed the 1 million user mark is certainly exciting. What’s even more exciting is that BitTorrent Sync version 1.2 has been rolled out and it comes with performance enhancements, iOS 7 compatibility, and a new developer API.


On Tuesday, the 5th of November, the BitTorrent team announced that it updated its BitTorrent Sync tool to version 1.2. This new release comes with several new bits and features. Here’s a quick look.

BitTorrent Sync 1.2 – Performance enhancements
The application received a significant speed boost and is now two times faster.
“The app’s been clocked at 90 MB/s on the LAN. Which means your 10 GB file will be synced in less than two minutes,” the BitTorrent team explained.

BitTorrent Sync 1.2 – iOS enhancements
The cloud-free tool is compatible with iOS 7, it runs as a native app on your iPad, it has an updated design, it comes with improved connection speed, you can use it to send and sync files in other apps, and you can save media from your Sync folders direct to your camera roll. That is what iOS and iPad users can expect to get from BitTorrent Sync 1.2.

BitTorrent Sync 1.2 – Developer API
Developers who want to use the power, performance and security BitTorrent Sync has to offer will be glad to know that BitTorrent released the BitTorrent Sync Beta API. It allows them to create distributed social media, communications, and enterprise apps on top of the platform. The API works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
