Hey, thanks for the new version with Google Drive integration: it's really a functionnality that was missing and gives the overall process much more flexibility! I haven't tried yet to download back to the phone from Drive, but it's a great step on the right direction!

Thank you! We are also glad to offer our users more convenient service. 

 

I'd like to give some tips and cautions in advance:)

 

  • What can be duplicated (to GDM(Google Drive Manager)): strokes, audio records, tags on each page
  • What cannot be duplicated (to GDM): transcribed texts, date records
  • What you should NEVER do: Please do not modify the files in 'Do not modify' folder. If you do, data in your apps can be damaged. It would be real tough (or impossible) to recover the lost file data
  • 'Rename' button will deactivated if you choose multiple notes (you can rename notes one by one)
  • You cannot use N2 during uploading/downloading (nevertheless, data won't be saved)
  • Please be careful when you OVERWRITE. When you overwrite from GDM to your notes, your recent strokes can be lost as it  synchronizes latest one with less recent one. You can prevent this problem by overwriting on 'Archives(Note box)', not on your 'Notebooks'

Hope our new function brings you much flexibility and convenience.

Hello,

 

NeoLAB is pleased to announce updates to both our Android and iOS applications that include a new feature called Google Device Manager (GDM)

 

You can now simply send your notes and notebooks from your device to Google Drive from within your app.  You can then download these notes or notebooks to any other device that you have the NeoNotes application installed on.

 

We will have greater details on operation available soon but we'd like to give some tips and cautions in advance:)

 

GDM is an app to app function.  You can not access your notes from outside our app.  We are fully integrated into Google Drive Manager.

 

  • Q: What can be sent to GDM: strokes (pages and books), audio recording, tags on each page
  • What cannot be sent to GDM: transcribed text, date records
  • What you should NEVER do: Please do not modify the files in 'Do not modify' folder. If you do, data in your apps can be damaged. It would be real tough (or impossible) to recover the lost file data
  • 'Rename' button will deactivated if you choose multiple notes (you can rename notes one by one)
  • You cannot use N2 during uploading/downloading (nevertheless, data won't be saved)  Please complete the task before continuing to write.
  • Please be careful when you OVERWRITE. When you overwrite from GDM to your notes, your recent strokes can be lost as it  synchronizes latest one with previous versions. You can prevent this problem by overwriting on 'Archives(Note box)', not on your 'Notebooks'

Hope this new function brings you much flexibility and convenience.

Hello everyone.

 

We are getting some great response to our Google Drive feature.  Here are a couple of hints about the feature:

 

The Google Drive feature is more of a back up and restore feature.  You have to manually back up the notebooks that you wish to have in Google.  It is not automatic like Evernote sync is.

 

When you press the Google Drive option from the app menu you will see your screen in 2 halves.  The bottom is what is installed on your device and the top is what is stored in the cloud.

 

Simply select the books you want to move to Google and upload.    Once you have your books in Google drive then you can download them back to any device with our app.

 

When you launch the GDM feature from any device you will always see what is in the cloud in the top section.   These are the notebooks that are backed up in the cloud.  The bottom half always shows what books are on that particular device.  

 

The first time you use this feature the top half will be empty.   At this point please select which books you want to send to the cloud.  Most users will send all, some users will be selective.  After you have done your first upload then you will see notebooks in the top and bottom.  

 

PLEASE NOTE:  There are two options after you have done your initial upload.  Those are "upload" if you only select the book in the bottom half.  This will upload another version of the note book and give it a new name.  If you select the same book in both the bottom and top screen you will have an option to overwrite.  This will overwrite what is in Google drive.   Depending on how you use your notebooks would determine which method to use.

 

If you always only want the most recent version of your book in Google then you should select overwrite.   This also applies to the restore. You can select both top and bottom to REPLACE the book on your device or just the top section to restore another version.

 

Please note that you can also download to your NoteBOX if you do not want some books to be in your NoteBook view.  

 

CAUTION:  If you use multiple devices now PLEASE make sure you are up to date synching your pen to the app else there's a chance you might not have the very latest version.

 

Because of the great feature that this offers we want the user to be completely flexible on how notebooks are managed so this is NOT an automatic sync like the Evernote feature.

 

Evernote can still be used in conjunction with the GDM feature with no issue.

 

We hope you enjoy this new feature.

 

Regards
