Are there any tips that can help the DDSEP 8 app sync across various devices?
The sync currently only occurs while the app is running, and if the app is not running long enough, the sync may not complete. This is especially problematic for users who capture audio notes because transferring audio files, as this postpone the sync.
We suggest launching the app and leaving it running for a few minutes, and then touching the screen periodically to prevent it from going to sleep. You should see a network activity indicator near the top right of the status bar while the sync is happening. This activity indicator will appear as a circular spinner next to the Wi-Fi symbol.
