Use of Multiple Devices with Proloquo2Go

Can someone please point me to the information that will help me to make sure that each of the devices that use Proloquo2Go has the same updated info.

My son has a primary device for school but has a second device at home. Want to make sure that everything is the same between the two devices without having to program each separately.

Thank you,

Denise

Hi Denise,

Hi Denise,

First of all, welcome to the Forum!

You can synch the two devices by creating and transferring a backup. In general, it is highly recommended to make backups regularly and store these somewhere safe in Dropbox or on a computer.

Proloquo2Go makes internal backups automatically, but if something happens to the device or the app gets deleted by accident, these internal backups are also lost.

There are three methods to make backups: Dropbox (recommended), iTunes File Sharing and WiFi. You can find the PDF tutorials for each method in this FAQ: http://www.assistiveware.com/support/faq/page/475

You may also be interested to know that you can also transfer individual buttons and folders. This may be useful when both devices are synched, but a new folder is added at school or at home. To transfer individual buttons and folders, please see: http://www.assistiveware.com/support/faq/page/480

Hope this helps! Please do let us know if you have any more questions. We're available 24/7 at support@assistiveware.com.

All the best,

Anne

You've got good advice from

You've got good advice from Anne. Just to share my experiences, my child uses a minimum of 3 iPads, 2 provided by the school. I have P2G on all three. With Ver. 5.1.1 P2G backs up the iPad in use automatically to Dropbox. I can restore to all iPads from Dropbox so they all have the same folders, buttons, etc. The school provides an "academic" iPad and a "talker" iPad. P2G on the academic serves as an emergency backup. Her home iPad and her school "talker" are her primary communication devices.
