Sync via Dropbox no longer practical (3 computers only with free account)


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Alfred sync is the last function I use DropBox for. But DB has now limited the use to 3 computers only for the free account. I have 4 Macs and beta- and other testing partitions on some of them.

 

Is it possible to make iCloud sync available for Alfred in the near future? iCloud sync works fine with other applications like Notebooks.app, NetNewsWire.app, Cardhop.app and more.

In a word, no. Those apps all function in a fundamentally different way to Alfred. They manage their own data (there's no way to add anything to NetNewsWire except via the app), whereas Alfred watches the filesystem. iCloud works well enough for apps like the ones you mention that can use CloudKit, but Alfred can't.
 

Alfred would have to use iCloud's file syncing, and that is still not reliable enough, which is why Alfred's help strongly advises against using iCloud. It has lost a lot of people's data.
