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.

Make it so that the squid on my phone and the squid on my tablet are in sync with each other

It would be nice to have actual synchronization.
Right now I have t he app in my note 4 and note 10.1 and I can just create new notes in the tablet because there is no way of creating notes on both and add sync between the devices. You just either back up or restore and that means overriding the contents of one device with the contents of the other and that is definitely overkill for the app. I don't carry around the tablet everywhere and sometimes I need to make notes in my phone but I can't since I have tons of documents I've created on the tablet and I don't want them to get "overwritten" when doing a restore from the phone. I mean having the ability of creating notes on the go with the phone and later review, modify, and edit on a tablet is a must. The app is nearly perfect, just this issue is very annoying. I've had the app for years now and this is the only feature that for me is missing to be able to say is perfect. And don't give me wrong, it's my favorite app for note taking and I even have the premium version, but I just would like to have the cloud sync feature.
Please, I'm begging for this feature!!!

I have a Surface Pro 4 tablet and a Samsung Galaxy 5 phone, I really really need syncing across devices!
I have a new phone and would like to get all my pdf's from my old phone. How would I do that?

The easiest way to support this (and the smartest IMO) is to add support for any of the existing cloud storage services: dropbox, OneDrive, etc.No need to re-invent the wheel and let people use their existing cloud storage for the purpose.
Agreed. Let me know if you find a good alternative.

You may have noticed I been keeping a keen eye on this topic as I think it is useful to customers. The last time I wrote was in March 2016. Today is 25 July 2016. I think we have been pretty patient as customers.
It is a shame that we have no update from the Founder, Andrew Hughes. In the one instance he says this is a 'high priority' and yet we have no updates. Pretty poor form if you ask me.
The lack of this feature does make me 1. Feel sad that this feature is taking long to build. 2. A lack of communication from anyone in Andrew's team (maybe he is just a team of one!) to update us. I am not asking for a finished product, but an update would be nice. Do you agree? 3. Makes me want to look for another product that can sync - fine that you take our money for development, I get that. However, what I do not get is poor customer service.
Awaiting Andrew Hughes reply.
The lack of this feature has me looking at moving back to snote or One Note. I have a note4 and an android tablet, not being able to share is an issue.

Yes... I love the drawing interface. But lack of sync is annoying. I wish Google drive was the sync medium that way I could access online.
Cheri Earp commented
Would love to be able to sync to my google drive account since I have more space on it verses Dropbox.

Looking for SNote Alternative
Squid is OK overall but,
Can't pick up same note on phone/tablet!
A sync to centralized cloud is needed.
Today only multy device app can win the competition
Write notes on different platforms using the squid app via account sign in
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.
PNG Sync with Google Drive !!!

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.

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.
