Like many other new posters, I’m looking for an alternative to BT Sync between multiple desktop and Android devices. Since it took a while to diagnose and find the relevant tracker issue, I thought I’d make a forum post to point others in the right direction. Hopefully this will save others some time if (like me) they search the forums and find nothing relevant.
If you use multiple Android devices there appears to be a known issue (currently reported as an enhancement request) that causes frequent syncs as the Android devices fight over file modification times: https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/issues/831
This issue only appears when the second device is added to the sync process, and causes noticeably increased CPU and battery usage across all devices. As I understand it, at present your only option is to only sync to one Android device till this issue is resolved.
Overall I’m impressed with Syncthing, I just wanted to call this out for other BT refugees since it doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the forum, and the issue title isn’t obviously relevant. If I’ve misunderstood the current state of multiple Android device support please correct me.
