No longer just Dropbox or iCloud
Users of MindNode for iOS know that you have the option to import documents from Dropbox or iCloud directly through our app’s Document Picker. This has always been limited to just MindNode documents. Dropbox has decided to deprecate their old API and we took the chance to revamp Import for MindNode and it now lets you easily import all formats from any cloud storage you have on your iOS device, right there in the Document Picker.
It’s as easy as installing your favourite cloud storage
A pre-requisite for importing on iOS is that you install the iOS app of your preferred cloud service. As an example I have chosen the three most popular, next to iCloud Drive.
Next go into the MindNode app and tap on the cloud symbol. Choose Import.
At the bottom of your screen you will find options for your available storage.
If yours is not yet there, tap on more and make sure that it toggled to visible.
Exporting documents from MindNode
Generally, when you are done with your edits and want to save your document back to your cloud service, you can use the Share menu in the document screen to do so.
Though slightly hidden, it is possible to automatically save documents to some locations. When you go through the iCloud Drive import option and tap the Locations selection in the top left there documents added to MindNode that way will automatically share changes back to the respective service.
While Dropbox was the first big cloud sharing service, we recognise that there is a multitude of different options out there and want to leave it to your own discretion to choose one. When you do, simply make sure that they are able to handle package files, like MindNodes.
