Automated Backup and Data Synchronization

Automated Backup and Data Synchronization


Overview

Automated backup keeps your inventory data synchronized with an online master copy, protected by account credentials. Whenever you make inventory changes on your device, those changes also get applied to the online master, and to any devices also signed into that account. Likewise, if the inventory changes on a different device signed into the same account, your device will also be updated.

















If you replace your phone, you can simply sign back into your account from a new device, and your inventory will be restored to that new device.
Note that each App Store and Google Play account needs to purchase the Unlimited upgrade to sync data.
