Online file storage

Now that Shapr supports other platforms, it would be nice to be able to have design files accessible from any of the platforms without having to export and import them. A ‘one database’ kind of thing where I could edit some on the iPad and finish up some work on a PC before printing, as an example.

Probably not an easy task to share the file locations from wherever they are stored natively within the iPad app, I can understand.

An option to ‘use cloud storage’ for design files by default and be able to point at something like Dropbox as the repository. Basically asking for a network friendly file management setup for Shapr files.

Yes, we are working on it. The internal builds are already supporting this, and it’s working very well. We are going to release it publicly this year.


Dropbox,Box,Google Drive,Microsoft OneDrive are among the services that enable you to share big files easily, store them in the cloud, sync them across multiple devices, and collaborate on them with collegues and clients.

Hopefully we’ll be able to choose our desired cloud service among a few options.

Unfortunately not, we will only offer our own cloud service, but it will be optional. We would not be able to implement a high quality sync service (especially not on iOS) based on other 3rd party providers. However for enterprise customers we will offer a self hosted version of the sync service.
