Online file synchronization service SugarSync lets you back up files from your computer and access them on the go using another computer or a mobile app. Today the company has released an updated Android app which also makes it easy to backup files from your smartphone or tablet thanks to a new AutoSync feature.

AutoSync automatically backs up photos from your Android phone’s camera roll to the web making it easy to access them from anywhere — or to download them to your desktop without using any wires or emailing photos to yourself.

You can also enable support for AutoSync folders, synchronizing documents and other files in folders on your mobile device.

Since SugarSync is a synchronization service, and not just a backup utility, it supports two-way sync. If you change a document on your computer, the changes will be reflected on your phone, and vice versa. SugarSync can check for updates and sync your files in the background, so you don’t need to leave the app running for it to do its thing.

SugarSync is available as a free download from the Android Market. SugarSync provides 5GB of online storage for free. Larger plans start at $4.99 per month (or $49.99 per year) for 30GB of space.
