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.

    Synching should consider customers with limited data plans and/or capacity of cloud server subscriptions.

    Try to avoid sending huge blob of data piling it as second versions of the previous blobs of data every time user highlighted one word in his notes.

    Pretty please. Automatic syncing will make this nearly perfect.

    I fully agree with about the importance of true cloud sync. I've just purchased the cloud plugin and do feel cheated. Lack of synchronization across my devices is the main feature that prevents Papirus from being my main note taking application. Syncing LectureNotes using combination of DropBox and DropSync works very well due to LectureNotes' straightforward file structure and location.

    dropbox support please, and options to back up each time a note is saved/closed (not every 12 hours)

    Must have this feature. The cloud services are already there! Make it happen!

    Please give us the users a status update on this planned enhancement. I write all my notes on my note 10.1 and review/study from them on my note 2. This is the only thing keeping me from purchasing the cloud service. Please, TAKE MY MONEY !!!!

    The lack automatic synching between devices feature really hamstrings this app. The simplicity of use and the great interface are the only things that keep me returning. I cannot believe that this most necessary feature has not been addressed in spite of all the comments.

    I second this. I can restore the backup from my phone to my tablet or vice versa, but if I have new notes on both devices I would lose data from one of them doing this. The changes need to be merged into the cloud database in near realtime rather than just backing up / replacing the whole database.

    I use the app on both my Note 3 phone and Note 10.1 tablet and I need to be able to make changes from either device interchangeably. I paid for the cloud features so I could do things like make a shopping list on my tablet and then use the list from my phone at the store, etc... this is a critical feature in my opinion.

    I would appreciate a status update since over a year has transpired since you commented on the interest in providing a sync option. Thanks.

    Join I just bought the cloud pack and am very disappointed. Backing up every 12 hours was not what I thought I would get. :(

    What I need is:

    1) Automatic push after I save. I want to take notes on my tablet, drive to work, and be able to access them. Whether on my phone using papyrus app, or via the web viewing PDF.

    2) I want it to sync both ways. Start editing on tablet, switch to phone while out, continue later on tablet.
