Device and app compatibility questions are our most asked questions. This support article covers the ability (or inability) to sync across devices and across operating systems with Future ADHD Digital Planners.

Device Sync - same operating system


Apple Devices (iPad to iPhone & Macbooks)

Sync is possible using GoodNotes by signing into the same iCloud account on each of your devices or using a Goodnotes account. We are also working on a iOS sync video like the Android one below!

From GoodNotes' support article:

Please do the following on all your devices:

  1. Sign into the same Apple ID.
  2. Enable iCloud Drive:
    • iPadOS/iOS: Open the Settings app on your device, go to Apple ID > iCloud, enable "Sync this iPad". Tap "Apps syncing to iCloud Drive" and also enable "Goodnotes" in the list.
    • macOS: Open System Settings, go to Apple ID > iCloud, enable "Sync this Mac". Click "Apps syncing to iCloud Drive" and also enable "Goodnotes" in the list.
  3. Open Goodnotes, tap the ⚙️ icon in the top-right corner of the Library view > Cloud & Backup > Cloud Storage and enable "Use iCloud to Sync Documents."


Android Devices (Phones & Tablets)

It is possible to sync using all of our recommended Android apps. We put a video together showing how to sync in each app. Here are timestamps so you can jump to the relevant apps:

Samsung Notes: 0:00
Flexcil: 1:38
Penly: 5:10
Noteshelf: 7:25
Xodo: 11:02

* The tutorial video below also includes syncing on Xodo across Android and Windows devices.


Windows Devices (Phones & Tablets)

Sync is also possible for Windows devices using the Xodo app and following the same steps as the Android example above. See timestamp 11:02 for the Xodo sync tutorial.

Device Sync - different  operating systems


Apple / Android Sync

There are currently no available options (that we know of!) to sync Apple and Android devices through an annotation app. GoodNotes has announced that they are working towards this though so we're hoping it will have the cross-platform sync!

If you hear/know of a solution, let us know!


Apple / Windows Sync

There are currently no available options (that we know of!) to sync Apple and Windows devices through an annotation app. But GoodNotes  have also said they're working on this. As soon as there is an available cross-platform sync, we'll update this article.


Android / Windows Sync

Android to Windows sync is possible using Xodo. You can watch this in the Android sync video above. Just to timestamp 11:02 to go straight to the relevant Xodo tutorial. 🙂
