What are the syncing options?
There are 4 syncing options in Capture 365 Journal.
Syncing using a cloud service
To sync using a cloud service, you must have a valid account with those services.
Please note, with Dropbox, syncing can only occur when the application is running and not in the background. This is due to a limitation in the Dropbox framework. With iCloud, syncing can happen while the application is running in the background.
- iCloud Shared
Shared syncing allows you to create, edit, view and sync your journal database with other people such as friends and family members.
This shared syncing feature uses the iCloud service, so you will need to have a valid iCloud account. Invited users will need to have their own individual iCloud account to join your shared journal.
Syncing locally / Peer to Peer
- 365 Direct Sync
365 Direct sync allows you to sync your journal data across to your other devices without using a cloud service. You won't need to have an account to use this sync feature.
Please note, 365 Direct Sync syncing will only happen when both devices are running at the same time. This is due to the nature of local syncing as that there is no server act as the middle person to distrubute the data. The data will have to sync directly to the other device.
You have the ability to encrypt the data stored on cloud services such as iCloud and Dropbox.
Note: To enable this feature, you must first disable any syncing services.
