How do I sync between my iPhone, iPad, Watch, and Mac
Pocket Informant has a powerful synchronization system that you use to sync all your events, tasks, and more across devices. We support multiple ways to sync and you can even mix and match them to your needs.
If you use iCloud only for Reminders and Events, iCloud will sync these throughout the Apple eco-system and therefore Informant on all 3 platforms will read and use them. You do have limitations such as no sync of icons or color, but its probably the very simplest way to get this to work.
Google, Toodledo, Evernote:
You can sync your events to Google Calendar, tasks to Toodledo, and notes to Evernote. They all have free options and will work very well between all platforms Informant is on. Plus you get a web-based client as well. The only negative is you're dealing with multiple sync services and not all Informant features sync such as templates. You are also limiting yourself to only the fields/properties that they support.
This is one sync that syncs between all our platforms including Android. It syncs all of our data types, but has no web version at this time. Its a paid subscription with a two week trial. One of its major benefits is that you can create tasks from an email and have one sync system that handles all your Informant data including templates.
How to determine what syncs where
Now the key to syncing within Informant of any type is knowing that its like having a hard drive where you put your data. You may have 3 hard drives and when you save a file you choose what hard drive it goes to. The same goes with Informant: wherever you save an event or task - that's where it syncs. In Informant the hard drive metaphor is the same as Calendars for events and Projects or Sync Accounts for tasks.
So for example if you are creating a new event and the calendar the event lives on is "Work" and Work syncs to Google - then the event syncs to Google.
Another thing to be aware of is if you already have a ton of events. Events and Tasks can live "locally" - i.e. not syncing to anything. Adding a sync account does not always automatically move all those unsynced events and tasks to the new sync account. That depends a lot on if its the first sync account or not.
