BabyGrow Backups

While BabyGrow does not (yet!) support syncing your data via iCloud, it does have a simple mechanism for performing backups via the free Dropbox┬áservice. If you don’t already have a Dropbox account, I heartily recommend their service. It is useful for many more things than just keeping your BabyGrow data backed up.

The backup process is fairly straightforward. Once you have a Dropbox account, launch BabyGrow and tap the gears icon at the bottom of the right hand side of the screen:

TapGears

Then choose Backup, scrolling down if necessary:

TapBackup

You will be asked to log in to your Dropbox account. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be taken back to BabyGrow. Tap Start Backup:

TapStartBackup

That’s it! All of your data is now safely backed up.

If you need to restore your data for any reason, the procedure is very similar.

Tap the gears icon at the bottom of the right hand side of the screen:

TapGears

Then choose Restore, scrolling down if necessary:

TapRestore

You may be asked to log in to your Dropbox account. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be taken back to BabyGrow. Select the backup you wish to restore:

ChooseBackup

Finally, tap Confirm:

TapConfirm

After a few moments, your backup will be downloaded and restored to your device.
