NewsWhy “Just Store the App Data on Dropbox” won’t work for RSS readers Pin

When I was developing an RSS reader, users often asked me if I would make it sync via Dropbox (or WebDAV or iDisk or similar). For a while, years ago, before Dropbox existed, my reader did sync by writing files to iDisk. It didn’t work very well at all, and, looking back, I shouldn’t have shipped this feature. I made a mistake.
Syncing shared data in the cloud is never easy. Here are just a few of the possible pitfalls.
