Android Application Data Sync Detailed; Syncs Tablets and Handsets Together
Google is preparing to roll a massive Android update and as usual that means updating all of its services. This includes a new option, one that allows users to sync app data across multiple devices.
Basically, the idea of syncing game saves from a tablet to a phone will also apply to other apps. This is a brilliant idea since I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started to play a title on a tablet and wanted to continue on another device from where I left off. This is all part of the new Google Play Services 3.1 package, that’s not yet available to the public.
As usual Android Police was on the case and got an early pre release. This concept opens up many opportunities on Android devices, with functions like starting a movie on a device and resuming on another. This also applies to note taking software and can integrate Google Drive, Dropbox and other apps in the process. By the way, this is also good news for people with backups, who will get a more solid image of their last phone on their new device.
