Use iCloud

Choosing between iCloud and local storage

The first time you open the Bible Memory verse app on a device, it will ask you if you want to use iCloud to share your verses and keep your progress up-to-date across all your devices.

Use iCloud

Choose Storage Option

If you want to practice your verses on more than one device, choose the Use iCloud preference.

If you plan to only use the Bible Memory app on one device, choose the Local only preference.  (You have the option to move your verses and progress to iCloud once you want to start using the app on a second device.)

If you’ve never setup iCloud, refer to Apple’s iCloud page for easy instructions.

What happens to my verses and progress if I delete the app?

If you chose to use iCloud, your verses and progress will remain stored in the cloud.  Only the app will be deleted.

If you download the app again and choose to use iCloud, the app will retrieve your verses and progress from the cloud.

If you chose local storage, deleting the app will also delete all verses and any record of your progress.

If you download the app again, your verses will be gone.

What if I want to also delete the app’s data from iCloud?

  1. From the Home screen, tap on the Settings app, then tap on iCloud.
  2. Tap on Storage & Backup, then tap on Manage Storage.
  3. Tap on Bible Memory.
  4. Tap Edit.
  5. Tap Delete All.

The Bible Memory app data will be deleted from iCloud, and will no longer appear on any devices using iCloud to access your verses and memorization progress.

What about iOS 8 and iCloud Drive?

iCloud Drive is not backward-compatible with iOS 7.  This means your Bible Memory verses will stop being shared between iOS 7 and iOS 8.

If you use iCloud to sync your Bible Memory verses between devices, each device would need to be upgraded to iOS 8 for verses to continue to sync between devices.

Please be patient as Apple migrates your iCloud data behind the scenes.  There may be a short delay before your iCloud verses start to appear on iOS 8, considering the large number of users upgrading to iOS 8.
