Synchronization with Dropbox

Here you can select to synchronize all the data with Dropbox (including pictures !).

The big advantage of synchronization is, that the complete database with all pictures is available on all devices assigned to the Dropbox account !

This means, you can enter/edit the data on your iPad or Mac computer, but it will be also available on your iPhone !

ATTENTION: Synchronizing with Dropbox is not recommended if you want to work from more than one device AT THE SAME TIME ! This can destroy your database !

This feature will be available with one of the next versions !

Managing categories

Here you can change the categories, or add new categories.

It is possible to add as much categories as you want ! (for example sub races like cat/main coone, dog/dogge, …)

ATTENTION: Changing existing categories will effect already existing entries as well !

This also happens, if you delete a category !
