Sharing RM databases with Apple product users

01 March 2018 - 07:49 PM

I want to share some of my RM databases with remote Apple product users. To the best of my knowledge, iTunes will only allow me to share with Apple devices that can be directly wired to my laptop where I use RM and Ancestry.

One alternative is to use DropBox. As far as I am able to determine, this would require me and my prospective sharees to spend 9.99 per month in order to install and work with DropBox so as to share RM databases. Have I missed something or misunderstood this methodology? 

I already have minimum, free cloud-based storage apps that could be used. Certainly iCloud/iDrive is automatically available to Apple device users.

I also see that the new Files app implies that there is the ability to drag and drop files from cloud-type apps to other apps that cooperate. Couldn't RM be enabled for something such as this?

RM database location in iPad file system

22 February 2018 - 01:04 PM

I have a new iPad. I have installed the RM app. I have copied a database file to iCloud/iDrive on my Surface 3. I can see the database on my iPad, but as you know, RM doesn't see it on iDrive. What files/folders should I define in the iPad file system, and then copy the database to, so that the RM app can see and load the database.

P.S. What 'Topic Tags'? I don't see any to refer to.
