Download Clients and Apps

There are two different apps you can download. The first is the client you install on your local machine ( Windows or Mac ).

You can locate the app from your Android mobile device by clicking the Play Store app and searching for "SyncedTool". This also applies to iOS. Go to the App Store on your iOS device and search for "SyncedTool". Once downloaded to the device, enter your login credentials to access your files.
