Video: Saving and managing your projects with Dropbox

These days, you don't really need to have a computer to use your iPad to its fullest. With iOS 6, Apple made it so you can activate, use, and backup your iPad without needing a computer at all. So, if you are someone who chooses not to use a computer with your iPad, but you still want to be able to backup your Auria Project safely online or even share them with others, you have the option of using a free Dropbox account. Dropbox is a service that gives you 2 GB on online storage space that you can access anywhere you have an Internet connection and a mobile device or computer. You can purchase additional storage space or enter for free by encouraging other people to sign up.

Saving and managing your projects with Dropbox

These days, you don't really need to have a computer to use your iPad to its fullest. With iOS 6, Apple made it so you can activate, use, and backup your iPad without needing a computer at all. So, if you are someone who chooses not to use a computer with your iPad, but you still want to be able to backup your Auria Project safely online or even share them with others, you have the option of using a free Dropbox account. Dropbox is a service that gives you 2 GB on online storage space that you can access anywhere you have an Internet connection and a mobile device or computer. You can purchase additional storage space or enter for free by encouraging other people to sign up.

To get started, you go to dropbox.com and sign up for a free account. After you register, you'll probably want to download the Dropbox App for iPad. Although you don't need it to use Dropbox with Auria, all you need is your login information. In Auria, go to Menu > Settings and here tap the Dropbox logo. Enter the email address that acts your Username and your Password, and that's all there is to it.

Now, you can go to the Menu and choose any Dropbox related options. You can Save Project to Dropbox, which saves the project file in the native Auria format. Just be aware that this can take a long time, depending on the size of your project and your connection speed. You can also load projects from your Dropbox by going to Menu > Load Project. In here, tap the Dropbox header and look in the Auria folder for your project. This can be really useful if you have multiple iPads, maybe have one at home and one at work and maybe you want to work on a project you started on one iPad on a second iPad.

Even if you don't intend to load your project from Dropbox onto your iPad, it doesn't hurt to put a copy there anyway so you have a back up, especially if you're not backing your project up to a computer. In the previous movie, I've showed you the MixDown command, and one of the options there was to Export to Dropbox. So again, if you have a Dropbox account, you can automatically move a copy of your Mixed project there. So, that's a bit on Auria's Dropbox Integration. Again, Dropbox is free and gives you 2 GB of storage space. So, it doesn't hurt to create an account and have access to it, just in case you need to make a backup or share an MP3 version of your project with others.
