Auto-sync from mobile device to website?

Is there a way to sign in to Mindjet for Android so the things I create on my mobile devices automatically sync with the website? I'd really love to be able to create a map on my tablet and view the map on my phone and when I sign in to the website. I thought that dropbox was the easiest way to do this, but that seems to be a pain too.

Hi Brandi. Thank you for your post. Dropbox is the best way to store your maps in the cloud to access them on multiple devices. Can you tell me the limitations that you are experiencing with using Dropbox? Thanks!

Hi Brittney. I am using a Motorola XOOM wifi only android tablet, and a Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX android phone, and a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Here is an example of the problem I'm experiencing: I originally created a mindmap using my XOOM and exported it to my dropbox so I could work on it from my other devices. I opened the document using my android phone and added to it because this document is a work in progress. When I opened the same document from my android tablet, it didn't have the changes I made so I went back to the document on the phone. I didn't really see an easy way to save and exit, or return to the mindmap title menu so I exported the document to dropbox again and overwrote the original file. Now when I go into dropbox with the tablet there are two versions of the file even though the file was supposed to have been saved over.

I really just want the one file to auto-save and sync to my dropbox when I'm on wifi so that I can make a change on any of the devices and have the change show up on all the other devices.

Hi Brandi. Thank you for your patience. My recommendation is for you to rename one of the files. If the map is set to sync to Dropbox on both of your Android devices, then it should not create duplicate files unless you are saving the Dropbox version to the device itself. I hope that this helps.
