PDF Max Frequently-Asked Questions
- Using iCloud: Your documents are stored in Apple’s iCloud servers, and synced across your devices, you won’t lose your data even if you remove PDF Max, reset your device, etc.., but it takes extra time for synchronizing changes and it consumes bandwidth [for saving and downloading changes, including those by other devices] on the go.
- Using Local Storage: Your documents are stored in your device and can’t be synced across your devices and will be lost if you remove PDF Max [The only way to safeguard them is to backup your whole device]. Opening documents is often faster and it doesn’t consume bandwidth.
You can switch between iCloud or Local Storage at anytime but we don’t support moving data back & forth [But you can do it yourself by exporting and uploading to iTunes, then after switching the Storage, and then downloading from iTunes again]. To switch between iCloud and Local Store, open PDF Max and at the Library screen, tap the Settings icon at the bottom-right corner, then check or uncheck “Using iCloud” option (Your data won’t be deleted when switching).
Please note that the issue happens on iOS 5.x only, the upcoming iOS 6 resolved this issue.
