Synchronization
What is ‘Sync’ ?
Synchronization is an operation of making data on aNote’s and PC/Mac (iTunes) or linked Evernote/Google Drive IDENTICAL. More simply put, think of iTunes or Evernote/Google Drive as the original source of your data and iPhone/iPad as the copy version. Since sync is basically making the device identical to iTunes or Evernote/Google Drive, if there were notes A, B, C, and D in your Evernote and notes D, E and F on your iPhone, the most easily perceived mistake when sync is that your iPhone will be updated with notes A, B, C, D, E and F. But this is WRONG because synchronization is again producing an identical copy of the original. The sync result on your iPhone will therefore be notes A, B, C and D while notes E and F being deleted.

Sync Sequence
1. Closely examine the coincidence of notes between iPhone/iPad and iTunes or Evernote/Google Drive.
2. If any differences in notes are found, classify for the relatively newer notes.
3. On the basis of this modified date, copy the notes onto the other side. This means copying the newer notes onto the other side with older notes.
4. Both sides now have the same notes.

Setting up Account
Opening Evernote & Google Drive account lets you manage your notes more effectively.
Once you log into your account, it will automatically keep its log-in status. This means that you don’t need to log-in to Google Drive or Evernote every time you execute Awesome Note.
To keep your data secure, set a passcode on some folders and lock it.

Synchronizing
If this is your first time making a Sync, it will take a while to sync with Google Drive or Evernote. It depends on how many notes & folders you have created, but generally it will take little longer than the usual Sync time. It needs to generate notes & folders on the Sync target server.

After your first Sync, the duration will be much less for it will only upload/download the changes made.

Syncing with Google Drive

IMPORTANT
Please make sure the capacity of inserted picture per note should be under 10MB to sync with Google Drive. In addition, each of the synced file contains note format information below the page. So do not erase it. Otherwise, you will not be able to see the note based on its original format.
Errors while syncing
Please check the below details first.

  1. Awesome Note only supports Document formats (DOC, TXT, RTF) and other files such as PDF, XML, CSV, ODS, ODT, HTML file formats cannot be supported so they do not sync.

  2. In case of irregular errors, unstable 3G and WiFi connections might be the reason.
  3. In case of irregular errors, It might be due to overcapacity of Google Drive server. Try again later.
