Dropbox vs. iTunes

02 January 2014 - 08:35 AM

I am using the app on my iPod and set it up to have the data read through iTunes file sharing.

To test out how things work, I made a few changes to some Notes, then I went to the app, and noticed that the notes had not changed. So, I decided to sync my iPod, and check again; but there was no change to the notes. As best I could determine, I needed to connect the file sharing between RM and with the new current data file, within iTunes. When I added the file again to the RootsMagic document, finally it had the most recent data with all my changes.

This seems cumbersome and I wonder if there is an easier way to set it up so that iTunes checks for any updates each time I sync?

If I were to switch to Dropbox, would that automatically update the data on the app whenever I save my changes?
