The very last (highly rated) data store app with auto sync? +Restore from backup crashes app.
Ugh. I've had this app for a long time, but this might be the end. It's never had any sort of automated sync, and now to add insult to injury, it won't restore from the last set of backups I'd manually created 6 months ago. This year's set of iOS releases have caused me a world of pain, and it was hard enough to face the loss of the last 6 months of notes because of my own impatience. Alas, this last release was an unintentional update, since even the default iOS apps like "settings" and "App Store" all just disappeared from my phone after yesterday's announcement of iOS 11. So, yeah, I was prepared to cope with this part.
That 6 month old backups should crash the app when I try to restore is totally unacceptable, though. I'm hoping that the app creator(s) fix this immediately. In the meantime, be warned.
Great app, but forgotten.
I've had the app since 2015, and the only complaint(s) is that it is still missing updated features tobhelp integrate with the current standard for workflow. Sync needs to be brought up to speed, along with the ability to have some font options (basic font editing); Allowing more choices for elements viewable in the label/note title would also be nice. The app simply hasn't been updated in far too long (2015), and it's a shame because it looked so promising that I replaced Tap Forms with it... it could've easily surpassed that app. As is it still does serve its advertised purpose well; note structuring is a breeze, and it is a pleasing and easy interface to navigate.
Great app with flaws
The design of this app is fantastic, and the flexibility combined with templates is amazingly helpful in getting you up and running lightning quick. Overall, it's really cool, and really flexible. I do have some complaints: you have to manually create a master backup and sync it to Dropbox. What?! That doesn't fly in 2016. I have at least three iOS devices that I'm using on any given day. It really needs to sync between devices to be part of my normal work flow. Also, this is just me wishing for features, but I wish it could have helper apps, widgets or some sort of rapid input/execute button right on the home screen... "Add receipt" type function. Oh, and fields able to do computation.
