Alternatives to Ember App?

    I was beginning to really enjoy Ember, then as you pointed out, I lost all my data as well. But I am resilient, because I know there is a great team behind this that needs to look at these problems and fix them.

    Let me be a little more specific:

    1) The idea of synchronizing between iPhone and OSX is amazing! But it just doesn't sync properly which defeats the purpose.

    2) Just recently taking screenshots of apps stopped working properly. Like Xcode, Sketch, etc. This feature is essential.

    3) I lost my data because I was playing around with the Ember / Library settings. I wanted to fix the sync problem, but it ended costing me.

    On a positive side, this app is really efficient. The editing, sharing and filtering tools are great. The Dribbble reader is lovely because it saves automatically to your Library. And obviously, the iPhone app is insanely useful for taking screenshots of apps. The auto-upload is better than Dropbox's since that later requires you to open the app while Ember doesn't. It's like Photo-stream for designers.

      Hi Meng,

      Just wanted to update on these points!

      1. The reliability of the current iCloud sync setup using Apple’s iCloud / Core Data integration isn’t working as smoothly as it should. The system is slow to process library changes, and we’re bringing this back under our control in the v1.5.1 update.

      2. I’ll drop you an email about this. If you’re using iCloud, this may be why but I’ll drop you a note as we obviously want the screenshotting tools to be as robust as possible!

      3. Sorry to hear this: it’s related to #1, and we’re working as quickly as we can to get the updates to Ember on iOS and OS X out so you can get back to using Ember.

      As always, if you’ve got any more feedback I’d love to hear it here or by email.
