New in v9.3: Backup/Restore to/from iCloud

SmartPlaylist v9.3 will offer the following new commands:

  • Save settings to iCloud
  • Restore settings from iCloud
  • Save search rules to iCloud (per list A, B, C, ...)
  • Restore search rules from iCloud (per list A, B, C, ...)
The settings/rules are first stored locally on the device (that is why those new commands work so quickly) and then later synced to iCloud. So, even if you are not online or not logged in to iCloud you can backup/retore your settings/rules (on the current device only).

  

You can use this feature e.g. to
  • Save the rules of a list before changing them, so that you can restore them later
  • Save the settings before experimenting with new settings - you can always restore the previous settings if something goes wrong
  • Move your settings/rules to another device

New in v9.3: Support for iPad split view

With the next release you can use SmartPlaylist side-by-side with other apps on iPad in split view (drag panel from the right and select app, e.g. SmartPlayList).

Notes:

  • Older iPad models do not support split view
  • Tested (only) on iPad Air 2
