Is there a way to have Ubuntu One for Android Auto sync a text file I leave on my phone?

In /media/u1/Ubuntu One/ on my phone, i have a text file with notes I study. I update it everyday. How do I make the Ubuntu One Android Client auto upload this to my online folder?

Is there a good Ubuntu One for Android tutorial I can use for this?

Answer Resolved: Ok I searched Askubuntu and found this: Manually Upload Files from Android

Basically, The app doesnt have a Upload Button, but requires uploading via a another app (like foldersync for andoid).

To Upload:

  1. click + button in android ubuntu one
  2. click foldersync
  3. select file
  4. your phone will upload the file.

To download:

  1. open ubuntu adnroid one
  2. touch the file
  3. it will get downloaded to /media/u1/Ubuntu One/...

Hope this helps anyone.

Sorry for the confusion. What I meant is: What do I push on the Android Ubuntu One application to Upload my edited file. When i hold the button there is a "Download, Delete..." Option, but I didnt see a "Upload" option – nvidia-96needed Feb 20 '13 at 1:24
