  • How can I back up my notes?

In order not to lose your notes in case something happens to your phone, you should use the backup feature frequently, since we still don’t have an option to automatically back up your diary notes. If you have created a backup, you can retrieve it on any other device.

The following steps will show you how to back up your notes:

  1. In the bottom navigation bar, press ‘Settings’ and click ‘Backup and restore’.
  2. Click ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ backup
  3. In this step, you will need to sign in to your ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ account. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up
  4. After you sign in, you will need to allow ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ to create and access the folder where your notes will be stored
  5. In the new window choose the first option ‘Create backup’
  6. After a few seconds your backup will be saved.

Note: If you are already connected to your account, steps 4 and 5 will be skipped. Only if you use option ‘Logout’, you will need to repeat steps 4 and 5.

And for successful internal storage backup, complete the following steps:

  1. In the bottom navigation bar, press ‘Settings’ and click ‘Backup and restore’.
  2. Choose ‘Internal storage backup’.
  3. Tapping the ‘Create backup’, all your notes will be zipped in the ‘Download folder’ named ‘AscendikBackup’.
  4. Send that files via bluetooth, gmail, drive etc. to the other phone in its ‘Download folder’.
  5. Enter the app on that other phone, and click ‘Restore’.
  • How does the auto-backup work?

First, you must enable this pro feature by tapping ‘Settings’ in the bottom navigation bar and then ‘Backup and restore’. Log into ‘Dropbox’ or ‘Google Drive’ and enable ‘Auto backup’. After every action (edit, save, or delete note), it automatically saves that current version of the notes. Have in mind that, for example, a deleted note from two auto backups ago won’t be saved. That is why we recommend manually backing up to ‘Google Drive’, ‘Dropbox’ or ‘Internal storage’ from time to time, in case you wish that old deleted note back.

  • How can I restore my notes from ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’?

If you have created a backup, you can retrieve all notes on any other device. In order to do that, you will need to use the same account you sign in for backup.

The following steps will show you how to restore your notes:

  1. In the bottom navigation bar, press ‘Settings’ and click ‘Backup and restore’.
  2. Click to ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ backup
  3. In this step, you will need to sign in to your ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ account.
  4. In the new window, choose the first option ‘Restore’
  5. This will open a new window with all the backups you created, named by date and time.
  6. Choose the backup you want to restore
  7. After a few seconds, a dialog will be shown where you click on the ‘Restore’ button.

Note: If you are already connected to your account, step 4 will be skipped. Only if you use option ‘Logout’, you will need to repeat step 4.

Warning! Be careful with the option ‘Delete backup data’! If you delete your backup data you can’t return notes anymore.

  • Missing the backed-up photos after the restore? 

After the restore, you’ve noticed that your photos couldn’t be seen anymore? Try one of the following steps:

  1. If you did a backup & restore it on ‘Google Drive’, try it on ‘Dropbox’, or otherwise.
  2. Maybe the latest backup is too big, and your memory is full. Try some previous restores to see If the photos would appear.
  3. Delete all the backups from ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ and then back up the latest version of your notes on your old phone and restore it on your new phone.

  8. Now again press the back arrow to return to the list of apps, find the ‘Quillio’ app, clear the cache like in the previous step, then go back and force stop the app
  9. Once you are done performing the step above, go back to the device’s home screen and relaunch the ‘Play Store’. Your ‘Play Store’ app should update to the latest version within a few minutes
  10. Tap on the menu button from within the ‘Play Store’ app and go to ‘Settings’. Scroll down until you see ‘Play Store Version’. Tap on that to check for an update
