InSync works like Dropbox but it is much cheaper because it works with Google Storage and Google Docs.

    Thanks for the feedback, Flokass!

    Dropbox does two things that no other system (yet) does. It provides the necessary programming tools (APIs) for all of the platforms that we support: OS X, Windows, iOS, Android, and Windows 7 Phone; and it provides syncing to truly native filesystems on the Mac and PC.

    The short answer to “Have you considered X as an alternative sync solution” is “Yes” for every value of X that people have asked about. We have considered them, and have had to reject them for various technical reasons.

    We'll keep an eye on InSync, though, and appreciate you letting us know you are interested in it!

    I also just started testing with InSync (insynchq.com) and have been pleasantly surprised. At any rate, I don't think you need to use InSync at all. InSync is just a third-party application built to use the Google Docs APIs. There's no reason (that I know of) why 1Password could not do the same thing and use the Google Docs APIs for storing and retrieving the 1Password data files.

    The thing I am unsure meaning of is your reference to "truly native filesystems on the Mac and PC." Maybe that's the true kicker to this problem.

  • There are rumors about a so-called Google Drive. If Google Drive appears it will probably be better to take GDrive than take InSync.

    I would also very much appreciate a dropbox alternative like Insync or Google drive.

    Since there appears to be a SDK for Google Drive I am very curious if and when it will be implemented....
  • I realy hope Google Drive will appear soon.
