Aldiko Sync

Aldiko Sync


This application is designed to work with the eBook reader Aldiko. It allows you to sync your books and bookmarks across your devices using your Dropbox account.


** Note **

The app requires a rooted device to work with Aldiko v2.2.0+. This is because Aldiko no longer allows other apps access to its database.

** Note **

If you have an issue with the app, please use the in-app "Report Issue" feature, so I can address it as quickly as possible.

** Before complaining about the sync frequency in the Pro version, please read the entry about it in the FAQ here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1253576 **

Thanks!

The perfect companion to Aldiko The biggest thing that Aldiko is missing is the ability to sync your reading list across devices. This app fixes that. Sure you need root, but that's Aldiko's fault not the developers. The developer is quick to respond to any issues. Great app, great service.

Awesome app, Awesomer support! I love this simple app; read on my tablet, put it down, move to my phone, pick up where I left off. Looking forward to future updates with more syncing options! Support is top notch, 24 hour turnaround on my emails, never rushed support, always step by step. Happy Customer over here! :)

Works well This has been a very useful app. Will there be a version that works with 64 bit Android soon? It works on my nexus 5, but not my nexus 9
