I suggest you ...

Sync between devices

I would like to have my notes automatically appear on my other note devices with papyrus installed. E.g. Create a note on note 2 and it appears on my note 10 1. If possible allow editing too from that device.

I know that everyone has been waiting a long time for sync and I want to reassure you that it is high on our list of priorities. As users of Squid ourselves, it’s something we really want as well! We appreciate your patience.

This is something we’ve been investigating since the app’s inception and we continue to investigate constantly. Syncing is a very difficult problem to solve, especially with regards to handwritten notes which can be combined with images and text and contain backgrounds from multiple PDFs. I don’t have an ETA for when sync will be supported, but rest assured this is a high priority for us. We appreciate everyone’s feedback on this idea.

    Having two Fires, I expected that withh cloud storage, this would function like Evernote. The 7 inch is more portable of the two. My cloud storage will not download onto it, although the app itself did appear on its own. the 7 inch says that I have no premium features. At this time, it appears to definitey lack cross-platform usage, so if my device were to be replaced, I do not think my data is recoverable, or perhaps I am missing something?

    Should be implemented in a way that the notes can be edited from other devices. I want to be able to e-mail or upload on the cloud a note to my collaborators that they can edit. Currently we are using the pdfs generated by our separate versions of our notes. If this is implemented, it would be extremely useful for my work.

    If implemented, there should be option to sync either device to device in a collaboration way. And through an online storage way as well. Though, I do not, nor will I use online storage.

    Yes. Absolutely sync between Android devices. Please, I NEED this. Please help. Thanks!

    This suggestion should be merged with the Google drive option.
    Integrating the gdrive would make a big difference on my 2 note devices.
    being able to view on a pc desktop would be the added bonus.

    i can sync different devices with a selection.. but it is not real time sync.. if papyrus sync in the event of any changing on notes, we didn't need waiting for all notes and can use different devices in sync.. this is a cheap solution about bandwidth :D papyrus will be perfect and top

    Sync across windows and android!!! I keep using note 8.0 because of PAPYRUS. And I am going to to buy a new ThinkPad and Note 4 because of PAPYRUS.

    This here would be phenomenal to implement. But, if you do implement this. Please allow it to be device to device. Scenario one and one that I am almost always in, phone is my Wifi hotspot, and I use both phone and tablet to write and sign documents. Scenario two and seldom used in my case, tablet is connected to WiFi at some location. Not that I would sync any files on any other WiFi connection other than my own. For obvious reasons. The last one would be syncing through someones server. Which I personally never ever do. Not even the contacts on my phone are synced to my Gmail account. Not that I have something to hide. It is the principal of the matter to me. Any way, one reason for syncing between devices is that, it helps in preserving our data in case something goes woefully wrong with a device. And it happens quite often to me. As I like to implement mods to the system. But, I always do a TiBu before a mod, so I'm covered. But device synchronization would make it one less thing to backup. Any way, please make this happen.

    Sync over multiple devices is not rocket science, I don't understand why taking so long to make this important feature available.

    I recently purchased the cloud service thinking that the notes would sync as well. I'm glad that I'm not the only one.

    Sync over devices is a must.
    I have a note 4 and note 10 and right now each has different notes on it. What is the logic? It's like using a different app on each one.
    I am not using S note so I can someday move from samsung's ecosystem without being hooked to their app, but S note lets me share my notes on all devices including my PC which is great use.
    This feature including a PC app or viewer is a MUST.

    I would like this as well. The best would be trough one drive, but I have just registered a box account just for this occasion.

    But it did not work the way I thought

  • Sarah commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    When I first saw the cloud services I was excited because I assumed it was syncing, but was very sad to see it was just a backup feature. I save my notes as a pdf at the end of every class to my google drive, so the backup feature wasn't what I was really looking for.

    Would like to see Google Drive Sync which provides:

    * Real time push, i.e. I can see the created drawings immediately in Google Drive
    * Drawings can be used immediately from the PC

    My typical use case is:
    I want to create a first draft, hand drawn diagram. I take out my Galaxy Note, use Papyrus to draw it, switch to my Mac, open Google Drive, and copy/paste my drawing.

    Would be great, willing to pay for that too.
