Sync between devices
I would like to have my notes automatically appear on my other note devices with papyrus installed. E.g. Create a note on note 2 and it appears on my note 10 1. If possible allow editing too from that device.
I know that everyone has been waiting a long time for sync and I want to reassure you that it is high on our list of priorities. As users of Squid ourselves, it’s something we really want as well! We appreciate your patience.
This is something we’ve been investigating since the app’s inception and we continue to investigate constantly. Syncing is a very difficult problem to solve, especially with regards to handwritten notes which can be combined with images and text and contain backgrounds from multiple PDFs. I don’t have an ETA for when sync will be supported, but rest assured this is a high priority for us. We appreciate everyone’s feedback on this idea.

Off the top of my head it seems like there would be 2 ways to accomplish this. 1st, Squid would have to host their own cloud farm to store notes probably for an extra fee per month, or 2nd if they had a way to make the existing cloud backups "live" instead of just a restore point. With the latter there might be some issues if Device A updates a note but is not connected to the internet and then later Device B updates the same note before the first could be synced.
Syncing between all my devices is absolutely essential for me. I have been a "premium user" of Squid for years now. If this feature doesn't come before my annual subscription runs out, I will switch to the free Samsung Notes. Otherwise, it doesn't make sense for me to continue to renew my subscription. Almost every other solution (including Samsung Notes) offers this sync!

Couldn't a sync feature be realised by allowing the user to set the root directory where all notes are stored?
For example, I would then select the same folder within my OneDrive on all my devices. The syncing would then be handled by the respective cloud service and no separate server infrastructure would be required on behalf of Squid.

A syncing feature will require programming effort. However, every app I use has this feature. If a syncing feature is not rolled out soon, I suspect that squid will cease to be viable as a product.

The fact you can can't synch between devices is very disappointing. However I won't abandon Squid because of that. It's a good app for drawing which us my principal use. For important written notes I use OneNote. My concern is that Squid will disappear because of competition with the big guys. You have to solve this problem.

Please, please, please give us this feature! I can only access my texts and lecture notes on my tablet, would love to have them on my laptop as well so I don't have to carry around two devices.

I agree, I heavily use Squid on ChromeOS/ Chromebooks. It's weird that syncing between devices is still not available.

If you can create PDF or/and JPG, you should be able to export the native information such as
to Box, Dropbox, oneDrive, etc

Same issue. Can't believe I'm paying for premium and all my school notes are in one place on one device. Really crap I can't use it on multiple. I'll find something else to use.

Why don't squid has facilitis like onedrive. So all the motes will be available in all devices. And pretty much make the work easy for anyone.

Until sync is available with Squid I am using Google's new PWA called Cursive. It is basic but robust and, most importantly, allows me to create and view my notes on all my devices.

It has now been 3 years. Any ETA on this ?
Jeffrey Schurr commented
I was looking forward to this app but not having the sync feature is a deal breaker.
Frank Püttbach commented
Such a contradiction: on the one hand one of the world's best note apps and on the other hand no synchronization between devices. Why?

Sync between devices. Can t belive that this does not work. I work on chromebook, cause i want use different devices

Multi-device syncing is a game changer for me. I will immediately start looking for a substitute.

Investigating for 10 years....
Just the grab bull by its horns and hire more coders
Agree. Sync needed. Brilliant app. Simple and very powerful, but needs more input. More choice of nibs and a dropper type colour pick up function like ms paint. Would love an Evernote relationship, or google drive or ms..
Very fast on my Samsung note 6. Pen works amazing. I can't stop doodling.
Also great on S21 Samsung phone

I love the squid app! I am forced to use other tools because of this missing sync feature.
If it would encourage the developers, how about fund raising?
