Looks interesting but I will not use the Mac AppStore to buy before try scheme. Just add a trial download to your website.

Not fair to give a starred review of any rating when you haven't used the product.

Instead leave a comment.

How am I supposed to give it a try? What a stupid policy to allow buying via AppStore only?

Me too. Looks like something I would use. But no free trial first ?? SORRY not for me then. Will just have to put the $9 back in MY pocket again . . . if the developer doesn't provide for free trial, does that mean he (she) does not have confidence in the product ??

It does not have ay kind of database to keep track of the changes, so Folder Sync cannot detect if the deletion of a file/folder is the action to be propagated or not.
So, although it's not bad for what it does, unfortunately there's no way of doing real 2-way sync.
And, for me, that's something that a real sync program need to be able to do.

It looks a bit DOS-ey too, no? Not very Mac-like.

Folder Sync keeps multiple pairs of folders in sync, safely and dependably. Great for backups and for managing content on USB drives, memory cards, and other computers/drives on your network. View differences between pairs of folders on screen using user defined coloured coding.

Folder Sync allows you to utilise a fully automatic sync (Sync to Left, Sync to Right or Sync Both Ways) making only the required changes to keep this as fast as possible.

You can also manually manipulate the files yourself in order to copy or delete just the files you select for the ultimate in control, something that other synchronisation applications do not offer.

Notable Features are...
  • Extremely Fast Comparison Engine based on Modified Date and File Size.
  • Extremely Fast Automatic Synchronization as only the files that are different are manipulated.
  • Ability to save pairs of folders to presets for quick and easy repeat of synchronisation.
  • Users have the choice of using automatic synchronisation options or performing copy and delete tasks Manually.
  • Provides a preview of all changes that will take place prior to actually committing those changes to disk.
  • Sync external Hard Disks (USB, NAS etc) with your Mac and vice-versa
  • Multi-Touch track pad support offering fast scrolling and difference navigation.
  • Quick Look and Finder Integration.
  • Very Configurable Interface and Synchronisation options.
  • Extensive filtering abilities to allow you focus on the differences that need your attention as well as easily excluding files.
  • Powerful built in selection commands allowing you to quickly grab the files you need, great for those manual synchronisations!
  • 64-Bit Cocoa Application
  • Tested on OS X 10.7
