BotSync Enables Secure FTP File Synchronization on Android Devices

If you’re looking for dead simple and secure file synchronization for your Android phone, BotSync links your phone to a remote FTP directory. Stop worrying about filling up your Dropbox quota and start syncing from your own server.

BotSync synchronizes the directories you’ve selected at a set interval against the same directories on your FTP server. The connection is secured via SSH and even if you have a modest FTP account you’ll still have several times the storage of even a premium Dropbox or other cloud-based storage account. Visit the link below to check out the app at AppBrain, BotSync requires Android 2.1 or higher.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
