Just getting used to Moneydance and loaded an app on my IPad, but we have broadband internet and cannot have both laptop and IPad on line together. How do i sync? The IPad is subscribed to AT&T. Also will be going to ICloud shortly and am wondering if this will backup all my data and sync or will that only work on Apple Applications?

Thanks for your help.

    Currently, the app only loads over local wifi. We're currently hard at work (and internally testing) an update to the app, which will permit syncing via Dropbox and will not require a local wifi connection. For the moment, I'm wondering if you've tried creating a computer-to-computer network on your laptop- this may make it possible for you to sync with your iPad.

    I'll also post on this thread when the update for the app is available for use, which will make the wifi syncing issue moot. Thanks for using Moneydance, and please let me know if I can be of further assistance,

    Hi Angie,

    My wifi provider is going to set me up with another address for my IPad and that should work so I can be signed on to both at the same time. If it doesn't, I'll be getting back to you. Thanks again.

    I still want to find out about ICloud if they will eventually sync on that platform.

    Sachsdmsr,

    We're not currently working on iCloud integration with the app, this is an existing feature request, and ticket is attached to this discussion. By posting in this discussion your interest in the ticket has been registered. This is equivalent to voting for it, and you'll automatically be notified when we have updates.

    Good luck with your wifi provider, and please let me know if I can be of further assistance,

    Sachsdmsr,

    I just wanted to be clear- are you asking if the iPad app will sync via iCloud, or if Moneydance data files can sync'd via iCloud?

    Good morning Angie,
    I'm hoping the New ver of the app will still support WiFi?
    Mine (iPhone) works now (after new router) and would hate to loose this ability.
    Thanks,

    Hi Angie,

    Just got access to the same wifi with both laptop and iPad, but i evidently don't have the correct code to identify the iPad. Where do I find that? The codes that come up on Moneydance on the iPad are 4 lines long and can't be entered in that manner and even entering all of them they aren't accepted. This shouldn't be so difficult.

    Thanks for your help again,

    Hi Angie,

    I hope you can help me as the above issue hasn't been resolved. I even reinstalled MD on my IPad. The access code (entered all 4 lines with no spaces) is not accepted by my laptop. I'm on the same wifi with both laptop and IPad. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I even went into ITunes and made sure my ID was the same as my laptop. I really would like to get this issue resolved so I can take my IPad wherever and update my transactions.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Unless I am missing something there is a subscription fee for Drop Box. Further up this thread I see talk of iCloud sync, but then nothing more about it. I would love for this app to sync using iCloud.

    Thanks.

    I haven't paid any fee. Downloaded and it works seamlessly. Syncs automatically as I enter data on my iPad.

    OK, sorry had a little tunnel vision going there. When I went to Drop Box site the first thing I looked at was Pricing for teams and figured they were charging for everything.

    So if I put Drop Box on 2 macs and 2 iPhones will I be able to keep one MD file synced between the 4 devices? So if my GF makes an entry on her phone in a matter of time it will appera on mine?

    Thanks.

    If you are using the same data file between all devices and sharing through dropbox that should work. Just make sure that you don't have two desktop versions of Moneydance open at the same time using the same data file, as there's a risk that you could save one and overwrite the data being written on the other open desktop.

    Do you mean 2 desktop versions open on the same computer or on seperat computers? My goal is to only have one file for the household, with seperat accounts within the file. If I take $ out at the ATM or deposit or what ever it will show on all devices, her phone, her laptop, my phone and my laptop. And of course the same if she makes a transaction.

    Thanks.

    In theory you shouldn't be able to open two instances of Moneydance on a single computer at the same time (there are ways to do it, but you'd have to go really out of your way to make that happen). I was referring to updating a single file from two different desktop computers via dropbox. Just make sure to not have two desktop versions open with the same file at the same time, and always save and close Moneydance when you are done with it.
