iCloud Saving on iOS (NOT sync)

At the risk of being pedantic, iOS Scriv doesn’t have the automatic backup feature found on the desktop apps, although I certainly hope it someday will.

Yes, you can store you Scriv projects locally on your iPad, and use iOS Scriv’s sharing feature to manually create a zipped file from your project that you can send to a cloud service (e.g. iCloud Drive), or email to yourself, or whatever. I keep my projects in DropBox, but still do this at the end of every iOS writing session as an additional backup. It’s very easy to do

Then, if disaster strikes, you can pull the zipped file from the cloud service and recover your project from it. I’ve never actually done that myself, but a number of people on this forum have, for instance the folks in this thread: [url]External backup for Scrivener iOS files?]

Unfortunately, at the moment the backup process for iOS Scrivener is not automatic. But if you are diligent about using the sharing feature to make manual backups, then you would be covered if you ever lost your iPad. :slight_smile:
