Feel free to post any comments or questions into the forum.


iTunes File Sharing

You can use your existing RUMlog files from your Mac

To see how it works look here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4094?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

Copy your Mac RUMlog files and your dxcc.rsd database to the iPad. After logging you can copy back the log file.


ADIF Import

  1. Send your ADIF text file to your iPad by e-mail or use Notes with iCloud syncing.

  2. Copy the text into the clipboard.

  3. In the Log Settings push the „Paste“ button to insert the text.

  4. Push the „Import“ button.


You can also use the new Dropbox API, see below!


Using the Dropbox

You can create an account here: https://www.dropbox.com/home

  1. In the Log Settings  right upper corner is a "Link to Dropbox" button provided. You will be requested to enter your Dropbox account data.

  2. Now look at the Mac in your Dropbox folder. There must be  a new folder "RUMlog" in an "Apps" folder. Both were created by Dropbox.

  3. Copy desired logfiles into this RUMlog folder. On the iPad Log Settings switch now over to use Dropbox. After a while the files should be become selectable. Syncing the files may take few minutes.


Using the new Dropbox „Drop-ins“ API

Dropbox is offering a new feature: Drop-ins. You can upload and download files now direct from an application to/from your Dropbox.

Only the download is supported yet for iOS! The upload function should be coming soon.

You need to install the Dropbox app on your iOS device: https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/dropbox/id327630330?mt=8

Now you can copy your RUMlog logbook files to your Dropbox, using your computer and download it direct in the RUMlog app on your iOS device. You don‘t need iTunes file sharing any longer for that. Please note: There are no Sync functions!

Use the „Download from Dropbox“ button to download a logfile.

Hint for classic version: You can use this function also to download your modified „dxcc.rsd“ database.


Using the Dropbox, allows you now to import direct an ADIF file. Copy your ADIF file into the Dropbox and use the „Dropbox“ button on the ADIF Import section. (Log Settings)
