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.

        Any updates on this feature? The last post from a Dev was 3 years ago...

        This is a basic feature necessary for any major notaking application. Evernote, OneNote, Notebook, + others.

        The current back up feature is useless because you have to keep restoring and backing up from different devices. It is extremely outdated.

        This feature would really make this app much more usable by students and proffessionals who need to access their work from different places. It is a deal breaker for many who would just move to oneNote.

        Everything else about this app is superior so it is a shame there is a fatal flaw. Please update your users on the progress of this extremely important feature before they all move to another platform.

        This seems like its reasonably easy to implement to me - just store the notebooks in a local directory that syncs with Google drive. Just move the location of the data files in your code. Surely that's not too much work? Whip through it in vim in a few minutes!

        Wow! I'm really surprised that our notes don't sync at all - especially for premium users. I'd like to at least be able to view the notes without having to export them.

        geez, you have over 1000 votes here, and certainly many more that havent found this forum. just make a crowdfunding and hire a specialist to implement it, if its too dificult for your team.

        Oh my goodness, add me to your long list of people who must have sync capability for Squid to work for me. I, too, had been getting super excited over finally finding this app and so disappointed to find out syncing is not standard operating procedure already! Please find a way...

        Simple to do. Purchase the TRELLO app. Send your finished product to trello and open trello in all your devices!

        Interesting that this has apparently been a highly requested feature for over five years now and still not added. The ability to sync between devices is the one thing that keeps me tied to Evernote. If Squid offered this I could almost completely dump Evernote as a note-taking platform. I have abandoned a couple other note-taking apps for this same exact reason. Not sure how much longer I will pay for a premium version before I export all my notes to PDFs and move them back to Evernote, unless this can get solved.

        Dude. Got to have them sync. Makes this app almost unusable if I can't switch between devices and edit. May start on my phone but when I get home want to switch to pixelbook. Please figure this out. I'd even pay for this upgrade

        It would be highly productive to have notes sync across multiple devices signed into the same account.

      • Luis Beratto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        May be it is hard but is the most important. I can no edit my notes because my previous device is dead and I have only pdfs backup . So I stoped taking notes with the app.

      • Joe commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Thumbs up for this feature! It's the only thing missing to make it 100% best note app hands down.

        I can sync my notes by upload to cloud then down load on other device but it takes lot of time but if this can be done for each note Separately it will be very usefull

        I am a student and its not practical to carry everything I use to study with me all the time, i use squid on my tablet but sometime y cant take it so i need to check things in my celphone and i just cant because i have the information in the tablet. It would be very helpful if i could see the info on either one of my devices.

        Caneta com escrita tinteiro; disponibilidade de sincronização pelo gmail; facilitar a formatação de textos inseridos e colados.

        I think having the ability to sync your notes across all devices will really set Squid apart from from every other app out there, and make life sooo much easier for people who would forget their heads if it weren't attached... like me. Being a busy mom to 3 and constantly, and I mean constantly having to multitask, I have to write everything down or I'll forget at least 35 of the 1000 things I'm supposed to do each day. I used to just stick post-it notes to everything (mirrors, doors, kids, sippy cups, you name it), but Squid actually helps me out A LOT (I really love the weekly and monthly paper layout for doctor and vet visits), BUT because I'm in such a rush all the time, it isn't very convenient to have to run back to my Chromebook every time I need to check my list of things to do. I would LOVE to be able to check my phone while I'm out to make sure I didn't miss anything, or to see what's next on my list, and I'd like to not have to waste any extra precious seconds having to send those files to myself every time I remember to add something to my list. 🙏 Oh I hope you guys figure out the sync feature soon 🤞
