Sync Review Data Between Devices

Thanks for the app. I think a feature should be added that allows review data (i.e., information on what cards are studied and answered correctly/incorrectly) between devices. I make my cards on the Mac app, but do virtually all of my studying on my iPhone or iPad app during my commute. When I sync the devices, my due for study, recently studied, and recently incorrect stacks on Mac do not reflect the studying I did on the mobile devices. A feature that syncs this info would be great -- unless there already is such a feature, and I cannot find/use it.

    Hi Jay,
    With iCloud syncing, those quantities certainly should update between devices.
    It could take a while for data to come through. Do you see other data come back to your Mac from the iPhone?
    Kind regards,

    It turns out I needed to update the app. I now see the data sync to the "recently incorrect" folder, but the "due for study" data seems to sync inconsistently. I reviewed an entire stack containing 41 cards this morning, but the stack now shows 24 of those 41 still due for study. Two other stacks I reviewed in their entirety show 55/108 still due, and 30/60.

    Hi Jason,
    It is worth keeping in mind that a note may become due in quick succession if it can be viewed in different ways. For example, if it is 'reversible'.
    The cloud sync is very new, and you can expect improvements going forward too.
    Kind regards,
