We encourage everyone to use the CloudSync option when syncing between their personal devices, since it works automatically and seamlessly using your iCloud account. However, if you don't want to use iCloud syncing, you can use the Dropbox option instead. First, link to the Dropbox sync option in the app (if you have CloudSync sync enabled, you will have to turn that off first). To link to Dropbox:
iOS: on the More -> Sync Settings page, select Dropbox. You will be redirected to the Dropbox app to authorize Contacts Journal
Mac: from the Contacts Journal menu -> Contacts Journal Preferences -> Sync -> select "Sync Options" button, and select Dropbox. You will be redirected to the Dropbox website to authorize Contacts Journal
Once linked, you can use “Save to Dropbox” on one device, to save your data to Dropbox, and “Fetch from Dropbox” on another device, to download data from Dropbox onto that device.
Note that when you “Save to Dropbox”, it replaces the file that is stored on Dropbox with your device data, and it doesn’t merge the information together. To avoid losing data through this, we recommend you follow these steps:
- first, "Fetch from Dropbox", to ensure you have the latest changes from Dropbox
- next, make your edits on the device
- then, Save to Dropbox to make sure your changes are saved to Dropbox
