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.Bobby commented
I get that it's difficult to provide sync, but the LACK of effort to even STREAMLINE the process of BACKUP and RESTORE is infuriating.
You guys need to take that process out of the settings and put it into the UI of the notes.
There should be some sort floating button that I can hit before I close the app and I would then hit that same button when I open the app restore to the latest version.
It's not that hard. I realize my tone is harsh, but like many others, I love the no lag writing experience... BUT the more I use the app, the more aggravated I get. I know file sizes get large, but I (Like many others who have tried everything to keep using this app) archive notes I don't need anymore as PDF's in dropbox or google drive. So file size should not be an issue.
Just... please please please streamline the backup and restore process!Bobby commented
I am switching to Notebook by the zoho corporation. They offer syncing between devices and I can import a picture of a template and write on top of it just like squid. The lag is very minimal. I can group notes inside a file/Notebook and I can even lock a whole Notebook or just a file.
One thing I can't do is write on a PDF, but converting a template to jpeg is fine with me and there are plenty of PDF annotation apps out there for when I need to fill out a form.
So long Squid.

We currently support creating and restoring backups to/from Google Drive via the local backup settings: http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1185616
I understand that this does not meet everyone’s needs. Adding support for Google Drive to the automatic backup options is something we continue to investigate.
I recently wrote an open letter to Cloud Storage providers on this subject: https://medium.com/steadfast-innovation/open-letter-to-cloud-storage-apps-on-android-a2d0eb919fc4
Please encourage your favorite cloud storage provider (i.e. Google Drive) to fully support the Android Storage Access Framework (as stated in the above letter). This will not only help us to better support backup and restore to ANY cloud app, but will help the ecosystem as a whole.
