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.

        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.

        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 🤞

        Hi, synchronising is a MUST nowday. Please invest in this direction, as in many case this is a reason to use or NOT to use SQUID.

        Thanx

        Please add me to the list of people who wish to have the sync feature. I don't need it to be a collaborative sync. Just have it update the copies on my other devices.

        I was so happy to find an alternative to the ipad only app Notability. I installed it on my Android and payed, then installed it on Windows. Then I was lead here while searching about how to access the same account on my Windows device. Too bad. I thought I had a winner.

        Syncing actually is not that problem, as long as it is not ment to be a collaborative thing.

        If you work with semaphores and timestamps you can more or less add this feature.

        It wouldn't be perfect, but hit the needs of a lot oft people.

        Onenote works this way.

        You could simlpify this feature if you you outsoure this feature to gdrive or compareable. Only the filestructure has to be discussed.

        Hello, any word on this? I love the app l, more than keep or evernote so much that I stopped my subscription with those recently and just use yours. However, without any sync between devices I am going to have to go back to the others!!! That is really necessary in todays era of productivity and connectivity. Please update me as soon as this feature is available

        Sorry, is the Windows version only available in the US or something? I live in Spain, and Squid doesn't show up in my Microsoft app store. I was kinda baffled that buying the premium subscription only applies to the Android app, but if the Windows one has been cancelled, well, then it's no big deal.

        cant belive this issue is still not solved.
        can recommend xodo pdf. they got live cloud sync and it's free.

        surely agree with this. I use 2 devices and it helps to have portability on both...
