Soonr, a company that allows you to sync and store files on your mobile phone and other devices, has raised $4.5 million in funding from HighBAR Ventures and existing investors. This brings the startup’s total funding to over $20 million.
Soonr syncs your files to cloud storage via a downloadable client that runs in the background of both mobile devices, Macs and PCs. When you’re on the go, you can access these files with the web browser in your mobile phone. Soonr also offers an iPhone app and works on Netbooks.
The new funding will be used to expand the product into new markets and to support sales and marketing efforts. Soonr offers a free and paid version of its syncing application and is also sold through partnerships with resellers, service providers and OEMs. Soonr faces competition from SugarSync, ZumoDrive and Dropbox.
