Can I migrate iOS data to Studies desktop, or can I only migrate from desktop Mental Case?

Currently I do have the desktop Mental Case, but I just don't use it and it basically sits in the garage up on blocks gathering dust due to the inability to regularly sync up with my iOS Mental Case without problems. But am I correct that to get my card stacks over to Studies, I will need to sync my iOS app to the desktop Mental Case to get the scheduling and card data over to it, and then migrate from desktop Mental Case to Studies? If so, I can probably turn on sync and at least get it to work once so that I can do this. But if there is a way to migrate my card and scheduling data (not sync) from my iOS Mental Case to Studies, let me know.

    You can transfer the card content just by exporting to files from the iOS app. But as you point out, to keep the scheduling etc, you would need to sync it over.

    There is not sync back from Mental Case to Studies though, so if you intend to keep using Mental Case, you are probably better just to try Studies out with some data, and do the proper migration later when the iOS app arrives.

    Thanks, I bought it and I'm looking it over now. Looking forward to the iPhone app!
