What is sync?
When you purchase the Timebox Cloud service upgrade, your Timebox syncs with the Timebox Cloud and all of the updates (additions, changes and deletions) that you made to your Timebox are uploaded to the Timebox Cloud. Likewise, if you have multiple iOS devices, for example an iPad and an iPhone, all of the updates that you made to your Timebox on ANY of your devices are all uploaded and downloaded, such that all of your devices are always in-sync. With sync you will always have your latest Timebox on all your devices, automatically.
