We’re very pleased to announce that our SyncPro® engine including cloud sync is now included with eWallet® 8 for Android.
The Windows PC (desktop) and iOS versions got the cloud sync upgrade last summer and now the Android version has it too. With version 8 of eWallet for Android you now have an additional way to sync and backup that makes use of cloud services, and doesn’t require a direct connection between devices. With cloud syncing you consider the wallet in the cloud to be the master, and then you can sync multiple devices (desktops, laptops, Android phones and tablets, and iOS devices) to that master wallet.
We still offer the direct WiFi sync method as well if you don’t want to (or can’t) store your wallet in the cloud, but we no longer offer the old USB sync, as many Android devices don’t support USB Mass Storage mode anyway.
In addition to cloud sync, we also completely updated the user interface using Google’s Material Design concepts. We also added new high resolution card icons for a new look, and one that fits in better with the new interface. The wallet file format is now the same as on other platforms, so wallets are essentially interchangeable across devices (there’s even a new feature that lets you email a backup copy of your wallet to yourself).
Please note that because of the wallet file change, if you want to continue to use WiFi sync between your PC and Android, you’ll need to upgrade your PC version of eWallet to 8.1.
A special thank you to our Android beta testing team who have been testing and giving us great feedback. If you’re interested in participating in a future beta, or have any questions or comments about the release, please contact us!
