Will JJX have cloud saves or device syncing?

PostSun Aug 25, 2013 12:20 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew of any plans for JJX to have cloud saves or something similar that would enable players to sync their world with multiple devices. For example, if I was playing on my iPhone, and saved my game, I would be able to pick up right where I left off when I go to play it on my iPad. Is there anything that hints at this in the beta? I would LOVE this. I prefer playing on my iPad, but I would also like to play when I am on the go without having different worlds on each device.

Sure Becky, just let me hook the bluetooth chip in my iPod up to this huge satellite dish so it'll transmit to the other side of the world.

Sadly there's no sign of anything like this in the beta.
They could still add something before release, but I don't know...

This may actually lead to some worlds being deleted from people's devices, I personally don't like this idea. However, you can still transfer worlds via iTunes.

our family shares an iTunes account. I can't tell you how many times we have deleted each others' stuff on our own devices. Most apps have a way to turn it off, but we usually don't figure it out until it's too late...

I just use iFile's bluetooth file transfer feature. But I understand that wont work for everyone.

I use about three apps to transfer, without having to resort to iFile (Since one is un-jailbroken..)

Actually iCloud is one of the things that Apple programmed worse in its framework history (GameKit is probably the second). I studied it a little bit but I realized that it would lead to so many problems caused by Apple's library flaws that for the moment I just preferred to avoid it.

Maybe one day, when I'll feel safe about it :asd:

Okay, fair enough. Also thank you for all the replies. Hopefully something in the future is worked out so syncing will work. Until then I guess I'll have separate worlds. Thanks again.

I'm guessing the third worse thing apple coded was GameCenter?

Maybe. But I think Jack is counting all our connection issues as part of gamekit, which is already second worst.
