iCloud sync only available from App Store version- yet it's not on App Store?!

Ron Sowers Sep 21, 2016 08:07AM PDT

I just purchased Outline for Mac, installed it & license. I have owned Outline for iPad for years. I thought the sync would be automatic, and it was not. After researching on net I found a tab inside Outline for Mac for iCloud sync and in parenthesis is the following "iCloud Drive (available only for the Mac App Store version)". Okay. So I then went to the App Store to see if it is on the App Store- and it is not.


I will only use iCloud Drive and not DropBox or any other service.

I got the same problem.

Have you planned to release a Standalone version with iCloud support ?

Hi Hugo,

Apparently we cannot include the iCloud support to our Standalone version because some Apple restrictions.
We'll see if the future Mac OS releases would allow the apps downloaded from outside App Store to use iCloud.
Right now there is nothing we can do to overcome this restriction.
