Purchased DTTG 3 on iPad - can I sync with my iPhone that uses a different AppleID?

Basically what the title says. I don’t particularly want to buy another copy just because I use a different AppleID on the two devices.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who does this - anyone got any advice for me?

Thanks, all!

EDIT: I don’t use iCloud at all. Not sure it matters, but I thought I’d share that in case it does matter. :slight_smile:

I think the simplest solution is to sync with something other than an Apple product which requires the same AppleID.

I don’t think I understand. All my devices are (fortunately) in the Apple ecosystem. I do not use iCloud, by the way.

Best to read how to sync in the DEVONthink documentation. Bonjour will surely work for you.

Cool, thanks! I’m going to go read the docs! :slight_smile:

[I should know better, as a former dev. RTFM!]

You can, just set up a sync-store on some suitable place and you’re done.

I use two different AppleIDs (1 Mac on one and 1 Mac + iPhone + iPad on the other) and have the sync-store on a Synology.

DEVONthink To Go can’t sync woth a local sync store.

@EmmaKay : A Bonjour sync on your local network is definitely a good choice in many instances. See this the Help > Documentation > In & Out > Sync > Bonjour and this post for more info:
