Using Apple iCloud

  • Setup a FREE Apple iCloud account — iOS / Settings / iCloud /
  • iOS / Settings / iCloud / iCloud Drive <ON>
  • Choose to store your data on iCloud for both Time Optimizer & Time Companion — Settings panel in each app
  • Time Optimizer Pro users: We strongly recommend using Time Optimizer Pro's Backup & Restore function when using iCloud.  When using iCloud Apple provides no method to backup an app's data.
