Synker - The Sync Widget

Synker - The Sync Widget


Synker, the Android account synchronization widget and Tasker/Locale plug-in, allows you to synchronize all registered sync providers on-demand or “Force Sync/Sync All/Manual Sync/Sync Now”. Synker will enumerate available sync-able accounts and allow you to create multiple widgets, or create one Sync All/Sync Now widget. Each widget is theme-able and configurable allowing for the selection of the accounts you want to sync. Synker enables you to have separate widgets for contacts, calendar, social media, and more. Press the widget to synchronize the selected accounts independent of the current Android auto-sync setting; no need to toggle auto-sync on/off! Synker also supports force synchronization of accounts by Tasker and Locale as a plug-in; create Tasker/Locale profiles to force sync specific accounts as desired or change the auto-sync setting on an account by account basis.
The sync notification service provides feedback about which accounts are actively syncing whether caused by Synker or some other mechanism.

The Accounts and Sync Inspector provides additional information about the accounts on your Android device and their auto-sync properties and sync settings. The inspector overview screen will allow you to toggle the state of the Android global auto-sync setting, force sync all accounts, cancel all pending/active syncs, and display a list of all sync-able accounts available on the device including non-user facing sync adapters. The inspector account detail page provides detailed information about an individual account including some interesting statistics such as total number of sync attempts per sync source, last successful sync time, last sync failure time, last sync failure message, and initial failure time. Also, the inspector account detail page will allow you to toggle the state of the Android auto-sync setting for the specific account/authority, force sync the account, cancel any active/pending syncs on that account, and edit the auto-sync period.

A splendid app indeed - especially good for devices which are either a bit slow or long in the tooth. We've used it with great success on a Cubot P9 and an HTC Desire C, both of which struggle under mild loading when the default account sync settings are left enabled. Now both devices are a whole lot more responsive because they are only synchronising when we want them to - as opposed to leaving the system to figure it out. ** Just remember that the sync notification service is not required for some devices e.g. HTC because it's already built-in.** Thanks for publishing this app .

Unclear Settings not user friendly. Lots of errors without global sync off. Waste of money. Simple but those few options are difficult to navigate. No option for refund?

Good way to save battery by turning off auto-sync and manually syncing everything using a single tap on the widget.
