Why is my data not syncing to my other devices?

First, check the iCloud status in the iCloud section in the Settings tab. Make sure sync is enabled. Here's what to do depending on the message displayed:

  • Critical Error: Update to the latest version of the app.
  • Ready: Check the status on your other devices.
  • Starting Up: Please wait a minute or so for the syncing to begin. If it doesn't, see the "Troubleshooting" section below.
  • Downloading or Uploading: Syncing is in progress. Please wait for it to complete.
  • Pending: Changes are queued up to be synced. Please wait a few minutes for syncing to begin.
  • Stopped: Something unexpected has occurred. You can try tapping the "Restart" button to see if the app starts syncing again. If that doesn't work, please see the "Troubleshooting" section below.
  • Not Running: This is unexpected. Please see the "Troubleshooting" section below.
