Desktop Pocket changes not syncing to Android phone

Jeanne
I loaded the desktop version of Pocket this morning, imported my data from Dropbox, made changes and additions to existing data on the desktop thinking it would automatically update the Android Pocket, notta.  Is there a way to sync the desktop and the Android?

It happened to me yesterday, but it was actually importing in some way: just look at the notification area, you will see a double pocket icon, open it and one of them will be a warning saying that the version on your dropbox is newer and asking you to import it or not.

The problem is that this message should be some popup to be clear, the way it is implemented is really anoying and one easily tends to thing nothings is happening on the Android side as this warning is not visible.

I have the same problem. When Android Pocket updates, PC Pocket shows updated entries but when PC Pocket updates, Android Pocket does not show updated entries.

I do see the notification with my Droid X from Pocket but it does not do anything. The only way for me to get Android Pocket updated is to set up online sync as a brand new, which is not an acceptable user story.

I use Droid X.

As you suggested, reinstalling Pocket on Android solved the problem. Now it syncs when I click to use the update from Dropbox.
Thanks.

Worked for me too!  Was kind of nervous at first though.  Losing this secure database would have meant alot of work regenerating the information.

I am having the same issue as well. I reinstalled pocket on my phone but it is still not syncing with the new stuff I put on my pc pocket.

Any other ideas?

I suppose I am just too stupid to do the sync.  I have downloaded, removed, downloaded until I could scream but cannot get what I have on my phone (Motorola Razor HD) to sync with my PC.  Any simple solution?  The thought of losing my data is scary.

I am also having same issues of syncing.

I uninstalled the pocket app from my phone and reinstalled it. But no use. Syncing does not work still.

Phone Pocket does not sync any data from desktop pocket.

Will be glad to have a solution soon.

I was actually able to get it to sync. When you install desktop pocket you have to select the file from within your dropbox folder on your computer. Then it will all sync like its supposed to.

Hi

I have loads of data on desktop pocket. If now I uninstall and reinstall then I stand to lose all the data!

The situation is this that I have desktop pocket and phone pocket. What have I to do to ensure proper syncing short of losing all the data and having to recreate all the data once again.

Regards

Hi
In continuation to my previous post I have to clarify that there is absolutely no data on my phone Pocket, though loads of data exist on desktop Pocket.
Does this help you in any way in suggesting what I could do?

Thanks
