I'm using SugarSync to sync files between my phone and my computer, but I'm not sure if things are actually working as they should.
It would be great to watch Android network traffic in real time.
Does anyone know of an app?
There is an app called 3G WatchDog.
It can monitor 3G data transfer and Wi-Fi traffic. A pretty neat application.

Isn't really an answer, but...
There is WiFi Analyzer which shows more information on the wireless networks your device can reach. It gives you more detail than the average user would require.
As far as I know, there is no application available on Android (yet?) that can "sniff packets".
Would be an interesting application to have in the pocket.
You can view, sniff, and save actual network packets, however this requires root access.
Shark for Root app does this.
First, you need root access in your phone. Then you can try a different package sniffer.
Some free apps are:
Internet Speed Meter Lite is an app which exactly does it.
I using wifi analyzer app for my samsung galaxy, download it from apkant. I think it's quite exactly for me.
I use CoolTool to get current information about my phone. And with this you can monitor traffic data (ascending and descending).
The pro is that it displays as an overlay then you can monitor while using the app. Hope this will be helpful.
Network Log is an app quite simple to use. It shows real time packets in a human-readable way as well as statistics. It takes it directly from iptables, hence you need a rooted device.
