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 am trialing your cloud backup option & whilst it worked initially with only a few notes in Papyrus, now with a lot more notes (imported PDFs) it just fails to back up.
        I keep bouncing between LectureNotes & Papyrus because whilst I prefer the scrolling in Papyrus & the speed at which it imports & generally gets things done, moving between devices & having the files available (Dropsync) on both is actually possible in LectureNotes.

        Have to add my opinion to everyone else: S Note may not be ideal, but at least it offers free sync across all your devices via Samsung Account. It is great that I can back up to Dropbox, but real SYNC needs to be implemented - even if it is an added IAP.

        Right now, the only way to do "sync" is to go to Device 1, do a backup, then go to Device 2 and do a "restore database" from the backup you just created from Device 1. However, if you have a new note on Device 1, and you added a new note to Device 2, then this is impossible, because you'll lose one note.

        Hey developers! I see people ask you for a features that most apps already have. I also think of buying vip services but I see there's no future for your app. I ALSO WANT TO HAVE SYNC AND SHARING!

        Gotta agree, pretty disappointed that I paid for the cloud services and then found out that ALL it does is backup the notebooks to my Dropbox. If Evernote adds full SPEN support, Papyrus will become redundant.

        I have 2 devices. Samsung Note 3 & Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. I have purchased the PRO version of your app and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. However, i'd like to be able to have all notes in one place. (ie: .. take note on tablet.. then see that note on my phone) Is this possible?? and i'm not talking about backup thru DropBox .. which is also nice btw. Thank you

        Right now my tablet battery is dead and I can't access my notebooks to take notes on my phone. I'm in class right now, so this is an important feature.

        I use different devices and I have to back up to keep it up to date. Please provide a login so it updates in real time

        Forget real sync. Focus on the restore working. What is the point of real sync when you can only export.

        Yep, still waiting for this one... I love Papyrus, but I had to stop using it years ago because of the lack of sync :( It's just not feasible to do the whole backup process every time I need to hop between the phone & tablet, I use them both too much. Had to switch to OneNote, not happy about it. Would gladly run back to Papyrus and pay for the feature if this happens. *Especially* if it integrates with Google Drive, that would be the ultimate dream come true.

        Synchronize notes between different devices. I have a Galaxy Note phone and a Galaxy Note tablet. I would like the notes to stay synchronized between the two devises.

        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.

      • JasonJason commented  · 

        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!

      • MarcMarc commented  · 

        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.
