How do I backup and restore data
To keep your journeys safe I’ve added an import/export feature to the app. It works cross platform, so you can export iOS Tours and import them on you Mac and vice versa.
On iOS you can use iTunes to transfer your data to and from your devices.
To backup data on your iOS device, open the app and head over to Settings – Backup to iTunes. This will create a file called “BikeTourDiary.backup”.
On your computer, open iTunes and select your device in the list on the left. Select the Apps tab at the top, then scroll down to find the File Sharing section. Select Bike Tour Diary and find several files – one of which will be “BikeTourDiary.backup”. Either drag the file to your Desktop or click the “Save to…” button at the bottom of the window.
To restore your data back onto iOS, copy a backup file to the same folder in iTunes (either drag it into the window or select “Add to…” at the bottom).
Then open the app your your device, head to Settings and select “restore from iTunes”. All tours from the backup will now be added to any existing tours in your diary. This operation will not delete anything.
On Mac you can use “Import Tour Data” and “Export Tour Data” in the File menu. The file format is compatible with both platforms – but to import data on iOS the file needs to be called “BikeTourDiary.backup” – otherwise the device won’t recognise it.
