Syncing is not working

If you have problems with syncing, please try the following steps to resolve it:

  • Make sure syncing is activated on all your devices. You can activate iCloud syncing in the Wokabulary settings
  • Check if Wokabulary is allowed to use iCloud under System Settings > iCloud
  • Make sure your are connected to the same iCloud account on all your devices.
    You can see the active iCloud account in your System Settings > iCloud
  • Make sure that you have selected the exact same vocabulary (language combination) on all devices. For example "French - German" is not the same as "German - English" and they won't be synced with each other. On the iPhone / iPad version you can see and change the selected vocabulary in the settings. On the Mac version, you can see the selected vocabulary in the toolbar of the Wokabulary window (and in the settings as well)

If none of the above makes syncing work for you, please try the following:

  • Disable syncing on both devices
  • Wait a minute
  • Then re-enable it.


If that also does not solve the issue:

  • Disable syncing on both devices
  • Then in System Preferences to iCloud / Apple ID Settings > Manage Storage > Wokabulary > Delete all data (See screenshot below)
  • Re-Enable syncing
