    I would recommend Dropbox Folder.
    Only Dropbox works with Mobile devices.

    With Dropbox Connection Moneydance uses the Dropbox API to talk to the Dropbox service directly. So, you don't need to have Dropbox client actually installed on your computer, but you do need to be online when Moneydance is running in order for changes to be synced. With Drobox Folder Moneydance will just read and write files to your Dropbox folder on your computer, which means that you need to have Dropbox client installed and running, but you don't need to be online in order for Moneydance to read and write the changes.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the quick response and guidance for directing me to the infinite kind knowledge base document. I decided to go with your recommendation to proceed with the Dropbox folder sync option.
    I ran into trouble when I tried to change the passphrase after opening file>sharing. The existing passphrase is not unique. How can I change it.

    OK your confusing me.
    There is no sharing under files.
    There is a FILE - SYNCING. In that window you can only change the passphrase after you set SYNC METHOD to DON'T SYNC.
    When you have made the change set it to Dropbox Folder again.

    Hope this helps.
