Chronicle Cloud is a brand new, lightning-fast cloud sync for Chronicle. At the moment, it is iOS only, but we plan to expand the number of available devices in the future, with the Mac version gaining Chronicle Cloud next. Multiple users people with different iCloud accounts can sign into the same Chronicle Cloud account to sync their data. In this way, partners, spouses, or business associates can manage the same set of bills.
How Do I Get Chronicle Cloud?
Chronicle Cloud is currently available exclusively on Chronicle for iOS (iPhone & iPad). Mac support is coming soon. Chronicle Cloud requires the iOS Pro Subscription. To purchase this subscription, tap the small icon of a cloud with an x on it in the lower-left corner of the bottom toolbar in Chronicle. You will be presented with a screen showing the details for Chronicle Pro. Tap the “Get Chronicle Pro” to purchase it. Note: Chronicle Pro purchases are tied to your iCloud account. This means if you purchase Chronicle Pro on your iPhone, you will also have access to it on your iPad, and so forth. If multiple people in the household who use separate iCloud accounts want Chronicle Pro, for example, to share data with Chronicle Cloud, each user will need to purchase Chronicle Pro. For example, if Max wants to share bills with Lucas, both Max and Lucas will need to purchase Chronicle Pro. Then, both users would sign into the same Chronicle Cloud account.
Creating Or Signing Into a Chronicle Cloud Account
To create or sign into a Chronicle Cloud account, follow these steps:
- Tap the cloud icon in the lower left corner of the toolbar. The cloud icon will have an x on it if you are not currently signed in.
- You will then see a sign in screen. Tap the red Sign in with email button, and type in your e-mail address and tap Next.
- If you’ve already created a Chronicle Cloud account with the e-mail address you enter, you’ll be prompted to enter your password to sign in. Otherwise, you’ll be asked to create a password to create your account. Tap Sign In or Save to finish.
- You’ll be taken back to the overview screen. You should notice the cloud icon on the bottom toolbar no longer has an x on it, signifying that you are signed in.
Note: If you forget your Chronicle Cloud Password, follow steps 1 and 2 above, and under the password field, you’ll see a link to reset your password.
How Chronicle Cloud Syncing Works
When you sign into Chronicle Cloud, all the bills on the device are immediately merged with your Chronicle Cloud account. If a bill is modified more recently on your device, it will be uploaded to the cloud. If the cloud version was updated more recently, the bill on your device will be updated with the cloud version.
Each time you make a change to a bill (editing a bill, logging a payment, etc), these changes are automatically uploaded to the cloud. Changes made while your device is offline or without an internet connection are automatically synced the next time your device is connected.
