How do I backup all my data?

  1. Go to the Data screen and tap Backup.
  2. The name of the backup defaults to the current date. You can leave it or change it to whatever you like.
  3. Tap Save.

Now the standard iOS share sheet appears. There are multiple ways you can store this backup file. If you are signed in to your iCloud account Files is a good option. If you have a Dropbox account that works good too.

Here are the steps for Files:

  1. Tap Save to Files.
  2. Tap iCloud Drive.
  3. Tap the folder icon at the top of the screen.

How do I copy everything from one device to another?

  1. Make sure your other device is on and that PackCheck is installed.
  2. On the device with the data you want to copy go to the Data screen and tap Backup.
  3. The name of the backup defaults to the current date. You can leave it or change it to whatever you like.
  4. Tap Save.

Now the standard iOS share sheet appears. There are multiple ways you can get this backup to your other device. You can use AirDrop. You could also send the backup to yourself using Messages or Mail. Or you could save the file to Files or Dropbox and retrieve that file with the other device. If you are familiar with AirDrop and it is enabled on both devices, it is the easiest.

We’ll show the steps for AirDrop first:

  1. Tap AirDrop (again, this is on the device with the data you want to copy).
  2. When your other device appears on your screen tap it. If you have any questions about setting up AirDrop this Apple support article might help: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204144
  3. The other device will launch or switch to PackCheck and a message will appear asking if you want to merge the backup with the existing data or replace it. It’s up to you and it depends on the circumstances. If you choose Replace there will be one more message just asking if you’re sure.
  4. Whichever one you choose a spinner will appear for a few seconds and then the screen will show the data from your other device.

Here are the steps for Mail:

  1. Tap Mail.
  2. When the new message appears enter your email address and optionally a subject
  3. Send it.

Now switch to your other device.

  1. Open Mail and tap on the email you received from yourself.
  2. Tap on the PackCheck file enclosed in the email.
  3. A screen will appear with some details about what is in the backup file.
  4. Tap the Share button.
  5. On this screen tap an icon called Copy to PackCheck. If it’s not there tap the More button and look for Copy to PackCheck in that list and tap it to enable it.

Now PackCheck will open and and a message will appear asking if you want to merge the backup with the existing data or replace it. It’s up to you and it depends on the circumstances. If you choose Replace there will be one more message just asking if you’re sure.

Whichever one you choose a spinner will appear for a few seconds and then the screen will show the data from your other device.


My friend is going on a trip and I have a great list. Can I share it?

You can share any list or any activity with any PackCheck user you know (including yourself if you want to send a list or activity to one of your other devices).

  1. Tap on the list or activity you want to share.
  2. Tap on the Options menu (the … menu).
  3. Tap Share…
  4. Optionally enter your name and a description so your friend will know who it’s from and why you like the list or activity.
  5. Tap Share…

Now the standard iOS share sheet appears. There are multiple ways you can share. If your friend is near you can use AirDrop. You could also use Messages or Mail. Or you could save the file to Dropbox and send them a link. Here are the steps for Messages:

  1. If you see your friend in the recent section just tap their icon. Otherwise tap Messages.
  2. If required fill in your friend’s name or phone number.
  3. Tap Send.

When your friend receives the message they just tap on the file and follow the instructions.
