I have a question about Accordance Syncing. Does the Mac App Store version sync with iCloud, or does all versions use Dropbox for syncing across the board?

 

I (regrettably) closed out my Dropbox account since my college is having me use Office 365 (which interfaces with SkyDrive) and GMAIL (which interfaces with Google Drive) and I didn't feel like managing a third cloud service, especially since I also use iCloud.

 

However, if Accordance doesn't sync over iCloud but uses Dropbox instead, I can definitely re-create a new Dropbox account and use it for syncing Accordance.

 

Which By the way, if anyone wants some extra Dropbox storage when they signup, PM me your invite link and I could use it when signing up.

 

Thanks!

You'll have to re-create a Dropbox account since Accordance doesn't use iCloud.

I'll send you a sign-in link :-)

Dropbox was chosen because it is cross-platform.

@Rick M: Thanks for the info. I didn't get the link come through, so I PM'd you my email address to send the invite to.

 

@Rick B: That's what I was thinking why you chose it. That way it can be used on Windows and non MAS versions.
