Mesh is an easyÂ wayÂ to “sync, share, and access” files between multiple PC’s.
From their site:
“Your work computer. Your home laptop. Your Mac. Your mobile phone. Devices live in multiple places. But the files you needâ€”and the programs that open themâ€”often donâ€™t. Live Mesh changes all that.”
I began using Mesh during the Tech PreviewÂ and I’ve been primarliy using it to sync certain folders between 2 pc’s (even though it does much more). This is valuable becauseÂ I can do things likeÂ maintian my Ham club contact list no matter which pc I’m on, check my bank balance or enter new check register entries,Â maintain other files and documents i need quickly, and everytime i save i know it will update on the other pc . It also has a website where i can logon and see my files even if i’m on someone else’s pc.
A few weeks ago at PDC2008Â (Professional Developers Conference) they unveiled this platform for use on Windows Mobile and Mac. I had been waiting on this from the beginningÂ becauseÂ I have a Windows mobile phone.
I have established folder sync on my Window Mobile Professional 6.1 Phone (HTC Tilt) so nowÂ I can do the same type work no matter where I am and everything stays in sync. I’ve even used this to install programs without having to plug a cable or swap the SD card around.Â Also, any picture or video I take on the phone is automatically synced to my computer.
If any of this sounds interesting to you I recommend checking out the site I believe it’s an open beta now so you don’t have to get in the invite queue!
