April 20, 2010: Cynapse, inventor of popular Enterprise 2.0 collaboration software Cyn.in, announced the public availability of a new offering: Sync.in – a real time document conferencing tool. With Sync.in, when multiple people edit the same document or note simultaneously, any changes are instantly reflected on everyone’s screen. The result is a new and productive way to communicate using text documents, useful for meeting notes, brainstorming, project planning, drafting sessions, training and more. Collaboration is further simplified with the Sync.in desktop based on Adobe AIR that works on Windows, Mac and Linux. Anyone can create free Sync.in public notes without even signing up and share its url to collaborate with others. Businesses can subscribe for a secure Sync.in Pro site for all team members at just $2/ user /month.
Sync.in provides a radically simple collaboration experience, one that is fast enough to augment natural spoken communication. Sync.in represents Cynapse’s commitment to delivering the industry’s most innovative collaboration tools for businesses. Sync.in is inspired from and based on the popular real time software Etherpad, recently acquired and open sourced by Google.
“Sync.in is the evolution of collaboration at its most basic level; I think users are going to love the real-time-ness that it brings to working together“, said Dhiraj Gupta, CTO Cynapse. “Etherpad was a proven innovation in real time collaboration. We are impressed with the Etherpad vision and intend to keep it moving forward, with Sync.in. An important step forward is the Cynapse built Sync.in desktop, based on Adobe AIR. Sync.in is now always available right on your desktop letting you quickly create and open notes, search and filter the list of notes and more features are already on their way.”
