- How can I backup my notes?
In order not to lose your notes in case something happens to your phone, you should use backup feature frequently, since we still don’t have an option to automatically backup your diary notes. If you have created a backup, you can retrieve it on any other device.
Following steps will show you how to backup your notes:
- On the main screen open navigation bar (hamburger icon in the top left corner)
- Choose the option Backup and restore
- Click to Google Drive or Dropbox backup
- 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
- 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
- In the new window choose first option “Create backup”
- 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.
- How does the auto backup work?
First of all, you must enable this pro feature by tapping hamburger (three lines in the top of the left corner) 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, deleted note from two auto backups ago won’t be saved. That is why we recommend manually backing up to ‘Google Drive’ or ‘Dropbox’ from time to time, in case you wish that old deleted note back.
- How can I restore my notes?
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.
Follow the next steps, if you want to restore your notes to the current or a new phone:
- On the main screen of our app, open navigation bar (hamburger icon in the top left corner)

- In this step you will need to sign in to your Google Drive or Dropbox account.
- In the new window choose first option “Restore”
- This will open a new window with all your backups you created, named by date and time.
- Choose which backup you want to restore
- After a few seconds dialog will be shown where you click on “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 option “Delete backup data”! If you delete your backup data you can’t return notes anymore.
