EPIM Cloud accessible now from Android app?

Post by lbw2112 »

Received an EPIM Android update yesterday and when opened a Pop-up for login for EPIM Cloud popped up and there's also a setting for it.

Is this new? Is the Android app finally able to sync to EPIM Cloud? If so are all modules able to sync?

If so this is great news.

Thanks,
Larry

Yep, its' true. Please keep in mind that's a Beta version, so some glitches are possible with it.

Thanks for the warning, I don't mind Beta testing. This is a huge development for EPIM.

A few questions please,
1) Do all Modules sync with Android?
2) Is it possible with Cloud to do a one way sync TO the android phone as it is with wi-fi sync?
Thanks, going to sign up for a year of cloud now.

1. Yes.
2. Not possible unfortunately, only full (2-way) sync is supported.

As you say ... It's a huge development for EPIM.
Just started testing/having a look, how it works

@ lbw2112
so far only first experiences ...
Starting with new/empty data sets on both sides, a new entry is synced to cloud and when starting any side, it connects to cloud and syncs.
Yes, glitches are there, but a natural part of beta.
It's too early to say more

Speaking of the cloud,
I've been experimenting with using EPIM in Dropbox. Have been happy with the results, although Dropbox wants to monthly charge for access to multiple devices.
My ultimate scenario would be to be able to access EPIM from 2 PCs on a network, a tablet, and Android phone from anywhere, and have ALL data synced between them all. As I use Kanban within tasks, that's not possible at the moment with EPIM on Android but hopefully someday.

My question is for those with similar needs, have you found an optimal cloud solution for your data (preferably no monthly fee involved). Believe I currently have 6 gig of storage with Dropbox.
Haven't checked and compared Dropbox, EPIM Cloud, Google, AWS, and OneDrive to see what is available now.
