Hi,

Just purchased a license and trying to get an idea of when Google Drive will be supported on Android. I don't mind using dropbox for a little bit but I dislike having to sign up for it _just_ for Moneydance. I use Google drive for everything else and would like to just have one cloud footprint to manage.

    Hi Chris

    I have tested Google Drive for Moneydance syncing between computers and that works.
    But at the moment Google Drive cant sync with Android devices. Its my understanding unlike Dropbox, Google Drive does not have an API that Moneydance can embed in its mobile app to make syncing possible.
    I have Google Drive which I use for a number of things but I also use a Dropbox free account for Moneydance syncing.
    As a long time, user of Moneydance and reader of this site I have never read a commitment to try to find a way to be able to use Google Drive for syncing to mobile devices.

    Google drive certainly has an API to do this and I have several apps that use it for synchronization of backup files to drive. So there's no reason not to support it in my mind. One of the most prominent apps I have that does this is DUO 2FA.
