iPhone Mobile App Guide

Unlike the Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile platforms, iPhone has limited settings available in its mobile app. As such, some of the features explained in the Web Panel user guide may not have any effect nor related settings in the iPhone mobile app.  It should be noted that the Recovery Options and Auto-Sync scheduling features are not available on the iPhone platform.

Running the iPhone Mobile App (First time launch)

  • Ensure that you have registered your MobileSync Pro account.  If you haven't already signed up, you can do so now directly from the mobile app by selecting “Sign Up”. For more information see Create an Account.
  • Launch the mobile app by tapping the MobileSync Pro app icon on your iPhone mobile phone
  • Login using the username and password - same as the one for the Web panel.

 

Tip!: Set the “Remember password” as “ON” if you wish you skip the login screen in future, and go to the home page.

  • Once you login, you will see a list of mobile phones (iPhone platform), previously added through the Web panel and yet to be registered.

 

Tip! - If you wish to login using another MobileSync Pro account, you can go back to the login screen by selecting “Login”, to login as a different account.

  

  • Select the corresponding iPhone mobile phone from the list of mobile devices to login to the mobile application.
  • You have now successfully completed registration of the mobile phone. You will see the iPhone mobile app's home page. 

 

Tip!: This is a one time process except in case you wish to associate a different account on a particular mobile phone. In such a case, you simply need login using the different username and password and run through the same steps as above. Refer to the Change Login section for more details.

Home Page and  Navigation

  • On launching the mobile app, you will be taken to the Sync page (home page).

Note:  If you have not previously set the “Remember Password” for the login screen as “On”, you will first need to login, to get to the home page.

  • You can initiate a manual sync from the home page by selecting “Start Sync”. For more details, see Initiate Sync.
  • You can also view the Web panel by selecting “View Webpanel”. This loads the web panel via mobile browser, within a frame. See Access Web panel (within app) for more details.

Note: For detailed help on Web panel, see Web Panel Guide. This is a general Web panel guide that also covers features that are only relevant to mobile platforms.

  •  The Device/Web panel section shows a side by side comparison of data available in your mobile and the web account. You can tap the Refresh icon  to update the screen with the latest details.
  • You can access the following pages, via the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. Sync page is also the home page, and you can always get back to the home page from any of the other pages by selecting “Sync”. Rest of the pages are explained in the following sections.
    • Sync (Home Page)
    • Contents
    • Add Files

    • Document (Add/View/Delete)

  • On selection of the type of data, you will be presented with a screen containing list of data entries that you could select and view and/or edit/play. You select an item from the list simply by tapping on the data. You will then see the full data for that item, and depending on the data type, you will be able to modify by simply tapping on the details and entering new details. Once you have done the needed action, select “Done” to complete the action and return to the initial screen. Screenshot can be seen below.
  • You can add data by selecting the   button. This would bring a new form where you need to fill up the data by tapping on the each field to enter the detail. Once finished with entering all needed details for the data item, select “Done” to return the initial screen.

 

Note: You can also add data using the Web panel, and the same data will be available from the contents page after the sync. In the same manner, any updates carried out from the web panel and/or contents page will sync with each other.
