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.

    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 in regards to handwritten notes which can be combined with images and text. I don’t have any kind of ETA for when syncing will be supported, but rest assured this is a high priority for us. We appreciate all your feedback on this idea.

        I really like the local storage backup option. I use it as a poor man's sync between two devices.

        However could you please turn the periodical backup on for the local storage? Just like you did that with the cloud backup.

        I'm syncing my local directory with own cloud provider and I guess I'm not the only one. Plus, the function is already implemented.

        I have WP and Android devices with Squid installed on both. Being able to sync notes between them would be a great feature.

        Hi Andrew Hughes, It has been some time since you have given us an update to your progress on this very important feature that I can see many members are asking for.

        Would you please let the members know in the next few days? Before April would be nice. :)
        Many thanks, Shiraz.

        If I could schedule a local backup time (not even export all note) and save it to a cloud service that I synch already, all I'd have to do up upload the backup on my phone every morning.

        i will pay more money for this feature. please get it up asap and charge us for all we care. as long as the product is good, we'd be willing to throw money at Squid.

        cheers. ;)

        It would be a very convenient feature ... almost everyone has more than one device ... not all in the same place!!!

        To have notes organized is a great thing. Also the possibility to ascend the date and the time of creation just pushing a simple button on the menu when the note itself is selected. Thank you for your efforts to improve the app.

        How about to just have the notes stored in a publicly available location and use a third party tool to just sync the files.
        I'd really love to be able to sync the notes from my Android device with my Windows 10 machine. I have my own ownCloud and use FolderSync on Android to perform synchronisation of pictures and other files

        How do I relink my dropbox files, with squid? it worked with papyrus.

      • CarolineCaroline commented  · 

        There should be an option to automatically sync notes to an allocated folder in Google drive. (Like the app on the Apple app store 'Notability'). Being able to sync and edit notes on all your devices would be really convenient, and it would make this app my preferred one of its type because it is on phones and PC.

        Would love to be able to sync

        I am a long time user of Papyrus/Squid, but the lack of sync between my devices (Note2, Note4, Note8, Convertible Laptop with stylus, web Access) FORCES me to use Microsoft Note.

        So Still I didn´t ditch Squid because of the simplistic superior Note taking, but I cant wait for much longer !

        Check out how MS is managing PERFECTLY well the syncing and bring it in such a way to Sqiud

        Sync pdf with same account on multiple devices , including folderstructure

        I wish that you would add the ability to synchronize all notes against dropbox.

      • JbJb commented  · 

        I wish you didn't have to constantly restore backups between devices. It should be automatic.

        My Samsung Note Pro 12.2 was essentially a Papyrus/Squid device with a Samsung label. It just died and i have had issues with the Samsung so have migrated to iPad Pro. I miss my Squid. Looking forward to when it is available on the app store. Especially the stylus writing and finger erasung.

      • jonwilburtanjonwilburtan commented  · 

        Should be able to sync between devices or the web just like Google Keep. It would be almost perfect then.

        Dear developer,

        is it possible to allow access to data files without having to root your device to get accea to the folder? I would like to use dropsync or folder sync to sync across all my devices.
