Setup iCloud synchronization on iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad)

Guarded Key detects when iCloud is configured on your mobile device running iOS and automatically enables iCloud synchronization. When you create Guarded Key database and sign in for the first time, the app uploads your database to iCloud and all subsequent updates are automatically synchronized between computer/mobile device and the cloud. Guarded Key will be using your local database as a primary source of data, so if you are not online or cloud servers are not accessible, you will still have access to all your information and the database can also be retrieved through iTunes.
If you don't have iCloud configured on your mobile device yet, you have to follow the steps described here.

Configure iCloud on iOS:


Open "Settings" on your iOS device and select iCloud. Setup an account using your Apple ID and password.


Select "Documents & Data" and the device will navigate to this view. Set "Documents & Data" to "On" (enabled). This is the only option that must be enabled to make Guarded Key synchronize data. Other options can be set based on your preferences and needs for other content to be saved in iCloud.


Start Guarded Key, select tab "Menu" and tap on "Settings". Verify that "Cloud Service" radio button is set to "Apple iCloud".


Start Guarded Key and sign in. The app will detect that iCloud is configured on your device and it will display an alert "iCloud Configured" at the top of the screen. This alert will disappear after a few seconds and a new alert "iCloud Available" will show up. It means that Guarded Key was able to contact Apple iCloud server and real time iCloud synchronization is now possible.


You can verify that Guarded Key uploaded the database to iCloud by looking into the iOS view Manage Storage. Open "Settings", select iCloud, scroll down and select "Storage & Backup". Select "Manage Storage" and iOS will open a view, where you will see Guarded Key app and it's logo. When you tap on Guarded Key app, it will show list of files in the cloud. In this case there will be your database, GuardedKey.edb file.

Great! Now you can setup iCloud on Mac OS X to enable data synchronization between mobile devices and your Mac computer.

Well done! Your Guarded Key is ready to use iCloud.
