Just recently got an Android Tablet.. and have been using this app for years on my phone.


Is there anyway to sync your favorites, etc across multiple devices, or could you add such feature?  (Maybe even as a PRO Feature?)

Great request! We have already started this feature development. Definitively is a feature we really want to have specially for cases you are mentioning. We currently don't have an expected release date for this feature but for sure you will see it on XiiaLive!

Do a backup file on your phone (backup.xiia) and send it to your tablet. move it to the folder /mnt/sdcard/xiialive/backup/ and use the restore function in xiialive -> voila!

Correct Patrick, thats how I currently do it..  But it would be better if it was automatic.   The current way, if you save a favorite its not on the other device, unless you are constantly syncing your favorites file.

We have cloud sync feature but it is currently not part of Xiia since we need to figure out the costs for it... :/ Obviously we want cloud sync to be free. By the way how many favorites and tagged songs would you say you have?

I only have like 10 stations saved.. but it's just the principal of having to save it to computer from my phone, upload to tablet - etc every time i had or make a change.


How about an option for the app to place the backup file on Cloud Storage (Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, etc) instead of the local storage.  That way both devices could share the same backup file???

Other apps use Google drive for backup. "ColorNote" is a good example. That shouldn't cost you extra. The text file with the favorites and settings should be simple and small.

Yes, just use Google Drive or Dropbox. These two should be aviable for almost every one.
