iTunes File Sharing:
Move it to New Devices
iTunes File Sharing. A powerful feature that not too many know about. App databases can be saved on your computer, so you have a backup of just that app's files.

If you get a new device, you can copy the file over to the new device, if Restore from Backup doesn't do that automatically (or you want to start fresh).  The apps transfer, but the data may not always do so, due to iOS backup glitches.

In some cases, such as our iPad/iPhone cooking apps, you can copy the file ss.db to share the recipes on two devices.  Or send the file to a friend to get them started with a ton of recipes.

Our Trip Boss apps also have a tb.db file so you can backup or transfer the database.

However, copying these between devices is a complete overwrite, so be careful--if you add data to a device, then copy the file to it, you'll lose anything you added. It is not a sync function.

Apple has a detailed tutorial which should get to get you started.

Backups are only as good as the last time you saved them, so it's a good idea to save after making changes.

We suggest designating one device as the "master" for all data entry, both with our cooking and travel apps. If you input on both devices, one could get overwritten using this process.

For more details, we outlined steps on our blog.

Trip Boss
Travel Journal

Exciting Update Coming Soon!

The next time we update Trip Boss Travel Journal, we are going to include Trip Boss Itinerary.  So, not only can you journal your trip, but you can list, in fine detail, all the places you visited on your itinerary, keeping track of the places you like (rate them too!) and the ones you don't, for future reference. 

Right now you can save places within Journal, but soon, by adding the Itinerary function, you can link those to each trip.  There will be a minor price increase, so snap up this app at the lower price until we release the update.

Recipe Websites Next?

Which recipe websites do you want to auto-import into Recipe Manager-Serving Sizer on iPad?

Currently we have a selection of websites that auto import, but more can be added by tweaking the learning code in the app on our end. However, so many websites out there, so many more to target.

Here's a list of sites we've tested:
