Syncing and Re-pairing

With the earlier 6.0.7 release, LogTen Pro updated it's unique identifiers used by the Sync mechanism to meet Apple's plan for deprecating UDID usage. When you first sync your devices, you will be prompted to re-pair your devices.

Note: If you encounter slow syncing, it is recommended that you update all LogTen Pro iOS devices to the latest version (6.0.9), un-pair all of your devices, and re-pair only the devices you continue to use.
