by Jason on January 10, 2017


We’ve just released version 1.1.9 of the Sync desktop app, for both Windows and Mac OS X.

If you’re already running Sync, click the Sync icon in your menu bar or system tray and the upgrade option should be visible. Otherwise, you can upgrade by downloading and installing the app directly.
