Wifi Syncing

I have used Mental Case for a few years and it has been a great app/program. I have the iOs versions on my iPad and iPhone and version 2.5.1 on my Mac. I can't seem to get the Wifi syncing to work, is this because the version 2.5.1 on my Mac no longer allows Wifi syncing? Thanks for your help!

  1. How do I sync my iOS device with Mental Case 2.0?

    Mental Case 2.0 syncs much the same as Mental Case 1.9 with the iOS apps. There is one difference: how you initiate the sync.

    In Mental Case 2.0, you simply go to the Sharing tab on your iOS device, and tap 'Start Sync' to begin syncing with the Mac. In the Mac app, you should then see your device in the source list on the left of the main window. Select it there, and follow the instructions.

    My Mac program does not recognize any other devices, like it used to. I'm on the same network on both devices. Any ideas? Is there a way to get Mental Case 1.9 back?

    I figured out sending via bluetooth, but it's not a sync. If you get a chance, help would be great!

    Hi Josh,
    Wifi sync should certainly work with the newest Mac app, but not with the new iOS app, which only syncs via iCloud.
    What version of the iOS app do you have? 4.6.4?
    If you do have the older iOS app, you should be able to tap start sync and go from there.
    Some wifi networks separate devices from computers. Eg colleges, cafés. In that case, you can make a local wifi net with your Mac, and connect to it with your iOS device.
    In the long run, you are probably better moving to iCloud sync.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Drew,

    I'm sorry, but I am confused about why users are forced to use iCloud sync now. My storage is full because I use it for other things and now I have no way of syncing my notes between my computer and iPad.

    Or do I? How does the bluetooth work, because it isn't actually transferring any of my notes at the moment. I'm sorry if I am missing something obvious, but what was a great product has been rendered virtually useless for me all of a sudden and I can't even migrate my years of old notes!

    Please help!

    Thank you,

    Hi Sarah,

    Assuming you are talking about our current iOS product (v1.3), sync is via iCloud because cloud syncing is what people generally expect now. It means you can sync wherever you are, and don't have to have both devices on at once on the same network.

    Re: iCloud, you can either try to remove some data, or pay the upgrade fee to Apple and get extra space. That is what I personally do.

    You can't sync over Bluetooth, but our recent app has various export options. Probably the easiest is to export your library to an app like Dropbox, which will then upload it and make it accessible to on a Mac.

    Hope that helps.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Drew,

    I'm sorry about the confusion; I know what cloud syncing is, but prefer to
    use services other than Apple's for my online data storage. Given that I
    already pay a significant amount for other storage services, it seems
    absurd that I am now expected to pay for Apple's upgrade to be able to use
    your app.

    Are there plans to make more universal syncing possible sometime soon? Or
    is exporting to a third party my only option for the foreseeable future?

    Thank you for your response,

    We are considering other sync options in addition to iCloud.

    It would be a bit silly for us to support other options before Apple's, when everyone who has the app already has iCloud. Eg Not all customers have Dropbox, and that costs too.

    Kind regards,
