Grid Diary Sync is our service for syncing and backing up your Grid Diary journals on all of your iOS devices. It is available for members and it’s a single subscription for all devices.
Why did you create Grid Diary Sync?
We have two main reasons:
Stability and reliability.
Dropbox and iCloud were never 100% successful for all of our users. On Dropbox we had continued challenges with duplicate entries appearing in journals. On iCloud, we had problems with data loss. With both services, when things went wrong, we were at the mercy of systems beyond our control that weren’t tailor-made for Grid Diary data. Understandably, our technical requirements and product roadmap aren't the same as either iCloud or Dropbox’s so we don’t expect them to change their services to meet our data’s needs. With our own service, we can quickly respond to changing needs and bugs that might arise.
We've architected new Grid Diary Sync to securely store your data.
By default, Grid Diary Sync encrypts the data "at rest" on our servers and securely transfers the data from our servers to the Grid Diary app
Of course. It will encrypt your data when sync from your devices, or you can just store you data locally on single device.
In the future, we are planning a feature called end-to-end encryption. It utilizes a user-generated, private key to encrypt all entries before they reach Grid Diary servers. With possession of the encryption key held only by the end user, maximum security is assured for journal data.
How much does it cost?
Grid Diary Sync is included with Grid Diary membership.
