Sync across Multiple Androids?? 2 years 2 months ago #43556

Hello All,

I have not yet purchased Comic Rack, because I am not certain if it will do what I want to do.

If I use Comic Rack on my phone, and then try to use it on my tablet, or vice versa, will it remember where I left off, and pick up from there?

I do not have my tablet at work... so on lunch breaks will read on the phone.. but then when i get home have to find where i left off can be a pain.

Please advise.

I think it will if you sync both devices.

Come home sync your phone to crw. Crw will then know where you are. If you then sync to the tablet it should get the information.

You will need to setup reading lists in CRW (the PC version if you dont know the acronym). These are then used to sync reading progress and whatnot between devices.

I know I've done this with Moon Reader Plus+ for my books. It uses a sync location on Google Drive or Drop Box. However ComicRack doesn't have this setup yet. Until you initiate a sync to your PC, all of your devices will have the latest location you left off from that device only. So if you start reading on your tablet, then choose to switch to your phone, it will NOT update your position.

Thank you Fuzzy.

With ComicRack, is the sync to PC done over Wifi? or is is plugging the phone into the computer??

If it is over Wifi, I may not mind doing it... if it is wired... then i may have to look into Moon Reader

Since you have the Pro on Android, you can do this over wifi. Sync your phone when you get home. The PC version will set your read progression in it's lists, add/remove books if you have that set up. Now sync your tablet. The tablet will look like your phone.

Thank you sqeed. That is what I would like to do.

Where do I keep the comic files? On the desktop? On the phone? On the tablet?

How do I make the wifi sync happen?
