MolSync is an app for iOS devices (iPhone, iPod and iPad) that provides a chemistry-aware client for Dropbox, which is a cloud-based file storage service. The app allows browsing of files and folders, and viewing of chemical datatypes. Chemical data files can be interconverted and used to generate graphics content. The app can import and export content with other installed apps, using generic data sharing methods. It is also tightly integrated with the Mobile Molecular DataSheet, and the two apps can be used together to provide local editing of chemical data with remote synchronisation of cloud-hosted files.
MolSync is developed by Molecular Materials Informatics, Inc., founded by Dr. Alex M. Clark and headquartered in Montréal, Canada.
The MolSync app provides the following capabilities:
- access to a Dropbox repository
- viewing, format conversion and graphics generation tools for chemical data files
- data sharing between other installed iOS apps
- data synchronisation with the Mobile Molecular DataSheet
A tutorial-style overview of the app functionality can be found in the introductory article.
The app can be used to browse data and manipulate data on a Dropbox account. When used in conjunction with the Mobile Molecular DataSheet, it can be used to keep data on the device synchronised with cloud-hosted documents. It can also be used to keep documents current between multiple devices (e.g. iPhone and iPad), or for multiple people to collaborate on documents. Documents can be shared publicly, and even tweeted directly from within the app.
MolSync runs on Apple touchscreen devices, which includes the iPhone, iPod and iPad.

 User Reviews
I have used this small app and feel it could be just the starting point to getting people to collaborate by sharing molecules and maybe data. Newer updates make this even more dynamic ...http://cheminf20.org/2011/09/22/sharing-public-data-with-molsync/ - Sean Ekins
