Duplicate buttons in DTTG

What is the reasoning for the duplicate buttons shown in the screenshot below?

There must be a less redundant way (an overlay sliding in/out from the edge of the window, or a toolbar at tho top of the screen, etc.). The redundancy in the current implementation is somewhat distracting IMO and, amusingly, makes the other four buttons that are different (help, settings, info, sort order) prone to be confused.

I can’t commnet on the why but thanks for the note.

The reason is that on iPad you can initiate a sync from both the list of databases or the list of records. When you initiate a sync from the database list, all databases will be synced. When you initiate it from inside a database, only that database will be scheduled to sync.
