Chronicle Cloud is a lightning-fast cloud sync service for Chronicle. It is available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac (Mac requires version 9.5 or later). 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 on Chronicle for iPhone & iPad. Mac support is available now starting with version 9.5. Chronicle Cloud requires either the iOS Pro Subscription, or a subscription to Chronicle Cloud on Mac.
On iPhone: To purchase this subscription on iOS, tap the small icon of a cloud with an x on it in the lower-left corner of the bottom toolbar in Chronicle for iPhone or iPad. You will be presented with a screen showing the details for Chronicle Pro. Tap the “Get Chronicle Pro” to purchase it.
On Mac: To purchase this subscription on iOS, click the cloud icon on the top toolbar, and then click the Purchase button.
Note: After purchasing either subscription, sign up for a Chronicle Cloud account, and your purchase details will be saved to your Chronicle Cloud account. After that, anyone who wants to share bills can sign into the same Chronicle Cloud account without having to purchase a subscription. If multiple people in the household want Chronicle Pro to share data with Chronicle Cloud, only one user needs to purchase Chronicle Pro. For example, if Max wants to share bills with Lucas, only Max or Lucas will need to purchase Chronicle Pro. Then, both users would sign into the same Chronicle Cloud account, which will merge their bills, and allow them both access to all Chronicle Pro features on iOS.
Creating Or Signing Into a Chronicle Cloud Account

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.
