Beta & App Store Installed At Same Time?

I used to have both the Beta and App Store releases installed at the same time, and it was working great.

Lately, I noticed If I had both, Dropbox sync only works with the App Store version and not with the Beta.

I have since removed the App Store version from my devices. Is this something new?

    @HenryY ,

    I don't think its related to the beta. I seem to recall a similar issue during the very first betas. Let me look back over my posts and Ill edit this post if i find it.

    I do recall I was having a devil of a time (back then) getting the beta and the stable to use Dropbox. It had something to do with how Dropbox authorized the app. In the end I was able to get it to work. I am almost sure I made a post about the issue.

    Gimme a bit to do some research. Unfortunately it could take a bit of time to find :(

    grr no GRR

    The search is not yielding any results. Let me see if I can solve the issue I know I was able to at one time. My iPad it currently only has the release so I should be able to at least try it. :)

    Seems to be the thing to do to get it to working on my end anyway.

    1. Uninstall the release,
    2. Install the beta, and setup your Dropbox sync
    3. I personally wait till the sync is finished before moving on
    4. Install the stable. I did not get a dialogue asking about Dropbox sync (it did mention checking iCloud) it went straight to the Master Password screen.

    I feared it was using iCloud or something but opening preferences it was indeed using Dropbox.

    I assume this is because its reading the Dropbox connection from the beta. ** Maybe the beta and the stable share this I don't know.

    Both Stable and beta should now be using Dropbox.

  • @thightower I did try this, but if you do this, the beta will only sync that one time, and any changes you make from then on won't be synced via Dropbox.

    Hmm thanks for adding that Henry. Not seen that Ill gives it a try later tonight. of course it could be related to some of the release bugs a few of us have reported. Since the latest beta is the Release Candidate.

    Sorry I didn't read the whole thread. Do you mean that you are able to auth both but that it doesn't sync or that you are not able to auth?

    Unable to authorize the beta with the stable already installed.


    Uninstall stable, install beta, link to Dropbox, install stable, link to Dropbox.

    Possible problem :

    Henry was unable to successfully sync and when it did sync it only did one time.
    Possibly related to these topics since the latest beta was the release candidate.

  • I see the latest beta addressed the issue.

    Yes, I also can confirm that. Thanks @HenryY for reminding me of the subject, and to check it out.
