Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

Yes they had a security issue a while back, but then so have MS, Google, Yahoo, it's an evolving field. Reality though, most breaches are a result of poor password/security practices by customers. so, because they ALL scoop and market private customer data that makes it OK ? They can only do that b...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

What about integrating a small utility which does the syncing after I have copied the project file via iTunes ? I don't get it, but hopefully you can explain. After you have copied the files via iTunes, what kind of "syncing" do you mean that you need? You just open it, right? So what wou...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

Actually, the sync code is the easy part. I said that we don't have the resources to support our own cloud service. Nor is that an area where we have any particular expertise or interest. And what makes you think that a roll-your-own service put together on a shoestring by a small company with no s...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

Literature and Latte simply does not have the resources to support our own cloud service, so some sort of external service will always be necessary for cross-platform synchronization. If this is an insurmountable obstacle for you, feel free to request a refund through the iTunes store. Apple is gen...

Re: Dropbox and Your Copyright

just my personal opinion this whole "depending" on Dropbox to sync was an ill advised strategy to start with. Creative work handed over to one of the worst data miners in history. Ridiculous. Lets hope LL down the road will offer a straight sync via cable without the need of any cloud serv...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

@lunk - the two of us will simple have to agree that we have a different view of what our rights to privacy are @pescat - "they are not worse than others ". Really sorry to hear that you lowered your privacy standards to that. How dare you expect others to do the same. And again, i don't c...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

I almost never log on to the Dropbox web interface. Usually only use the app, on both Mac and iOS. The apps are downloaded via App store so they shouldn't contain spy ware, right? So what's the big danger? it is outright scary of what some people know of how they are spied on. Do yourself a favor a...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

A. there is no Scrivener SYNC via iTunes!! All you can do is COPY a complete project file. Thats called copying, not syncing although it happens while iTunes actually syncs data between other ios and osx applications. What for do i need a multiplatform software if i can't use to work it on a smartph...

Re: Syncing between Mac & iOS

I guess I gotta chip in with this discussion. I've been a Scrivener User on the Mac for a long time and have been patiently waiting for the IOS version, you all know how long. Now the wait is over over and I actually really like the IOS version, I think other than the mess of sync its a great app, e...
