How to start using Sync in Bookari?

Bookari automatically backs up your reading and annotations on the Cloud and synchronizes them between all your devices. When you open a book that you are also reading on another device, it will be opened on the same last page that you opened on both devices. This allows you to easily resume where you left off regardless of which device you are using.


On device A (one of your devices)

1/ In Bookari, configure your Cloud account:
  • Go to the application settings or click on the “Refresh” button in the toolbar
  • Enter your Bookari Cloud login and password in Sync and Sharing by clicking on “Login”
  • The “Bookari account” screen is displayed with your Cloud information and options. Please read the default options carefully and change it if you want.
2/ In the Bookari app, add books or annotations to the cloud:
  • Select the books or annotations you wish to upload to the cloud (if you did not select the option "All" in Synched books in your Sync options)
  • Click on “Sync” in the toolbar, then click on "Synchronize". This will mark the selected books as to synchronize.
    • A grey icon will be showed on top of the selected items. It means the synchronization action is registered but not yet done.
    • If you want to force the synchronization, you can use the “Refresh” button in the toolbar.
      • Click on it with no books selected
      • Books and annotations marked as synchronized will be uploaded, and books and annotations from the cloud will be visible on all your connected devices.
        • A cloud icon is displayed on top of the items that are only available in the cloud
      • When the synchronization is  done, the grey icon will be replaced by the blue icon.


On device B (another of your devices)

1/ In the Bookari app, configure your  Cloud account:
  • Go to the application settings or click on the “Refresh” button in the toolbar
  • Enter your Mantano Cloud login and password by clicking on "Login" in "Sync and Sharing"
  • The “Bookari Cloud account” screen is displayed with your Cloud information and options. Please read the default options carefully and change it if you want.
2/ When you return to the library, you will be asked if you want to sync. Just select “YES” and all the changes from device A will be synched with device B.


In the Cloud web page, show your documents and annotations:

You can now browse your library online through the online interface available at http://my.bookari.com (See description in the 4.16. Showing my datas in the Cloud section). You can read and edit your notes outside of their book context.
Note: For the moment, it is not possible to read books online from the web interface of the cloud.
