I noticed yesterday that SS6 Pro was on sale on Google Play so I grabbed it. It's on my Galaxy Note 9 and running great. However, I also have a Chromebook and installed it there, but I don't see any way of linking the two installs so that I can work on Observation Lists on the Chromebook and then have those be available on the phone.

 

Is this not possible or am I overlooking something?

 

Thanks....

IME you have to email those lists from one device and then download/import it to another.  No way to link the two AFAIK

I thought that even if you sued the basic version of LiveSky it would do this.

I think if you're connected through LiveSky,  then you can access lists from both devices.

I can confirm that when you subscribe to LiveSky, you can access the planned observation lists and actual session observations from multiple devices.  I have found it helpful to have my lists sync'ed between devices.  There is also a web view of all your SkySafari data at http://livesky.com.

 

The LiveSky subscription is $9.99/year - which is worthwhile if you enjoy the convenience of having is data synced between devices.  But SkySafari 6 Pro can certainly stand alone without LiveSky and you can manually download/import the data if needed.

+1 on doing it with free LiveSky  but I think you need to have Cloud Storage turned on in Settings.

Just adding my confirmation here too. I've got the free version of LiveSky and can sync over all observation lists and all saved app settings to all devices running SkySafari. For me thats my iPhone, iPad and Mac. Just need to make sure you are signed into your LiveSky account on the devices.

Thanks everyone. Let's hope (though it's minor) that this applies to lists created while not logged in on one of the devices.

I have emailed lists from my tablet to phone.  Pretty simple to do.  Email list pops up in the bottom right when you open a list.
