BitTorrent Sync launches API for building decentralized apps, comes to iPad

BitTorrent Sync, the cross-platform tool for sharing files without cloud interference, hasn’t managed to shake its beta tag yet, but that isn’t slowing anything down. In addition to announcing the service now has more than a million active users monthly, and it’s passed over 30 petabytes of data between devices, today sees an update for users and something for developers, too. The general release of version 1.2 is said to improve transfer speeds to up to around 90MB per second. A new native iPad app is out today, and the current iOS version has seen design tweaks and compatibility improvements for iOS 7. Sending and syncing data in other apps using BitTorrent Sync is now possible, and pics and video from your synced folders can be added to a device’s camera roll.
