How to update your iPad/iPhone with new and updated Breeze Booth events

Breeze Booth (iPad+iPhone) events are created and altered in the Breeze Event Editor. This runs on Windows, so events need  to be synced (transferred) from the Event Editor PC  to the devices (iPads/iPhones) where they are used.

When PC and iPad are on the same local network

Local sync is the easiest and fastest way to transfer your events when PC and iPad can be  connected to the same local network.  Using Local Sync to transfer events

Local Sync: Events are transferred to iPads/iPhones by scanning a QR code into the Breeze Booth app

Updating devices remotely

When the device cannot be connected to the Event Editor PC with a local network, you need to sync events remotely via the internet. Dropbox or a web server are used for this.

You can choose whether to update (‘sync’) all your events at the same time, or update a single event. Updating all events is the best way to check everything on the iPad is up to date, but may be slower than updating a single event (especially if you have a poor Internet connection).

You can also update the event list before updating individual events.
