Finally a mobile verison of Cake Boss! Did anyone upgrade yet?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

I just received an email announcing the Cake Boss Cloud! The upgrade is $49.00 which I think is well worth the convenience.  I have been wishing for this since I purchased the software. Has anyone upgraded yet?  Would love to know what you think so far.  My main question is will the cloud automatically update the desktop version? Thanks Kelly for listening to our request!

 All of those are my questions, too.

 

I am wondering when we will be able to scan a grocery receipt into it and have it add it to the materials and ingredients and inventory and supplies...How rad would that be? Or have it tied into Square, so it adds the payments automatically? I will cross my fingers...

No new info on their web site (which seems odd) but they have a few YouTube videos highlighting features of the new cloud version:

I decided to upgrade, and immediately, when you click the link, it tells you to sign in... Wha? I don't have a username and password! After trying to link 3 times, and clicking the "forgot password" I figured out that i needed to click the small "shop" button...

BUT, I only have an option to buy the whole thing for $149, not the $50 upgrade. But, Why is an upgrade for $50 when I bought the darn thing for $150? It costs the same thing!

 

HTH!!

FYI, it does say that you will get a link to instructions on how to move your stuff over, after the upgrade.

You need to click the upgrade button, not the purchase button. Here is a direct link:
http://cloud.cakeboss.com/Home/Upgrade

FYI the cloud version also costs $20/year for storage after the first year.

According to their Facebook page, the desktop version and cloud version are completely separate. You can migrate data from the desktop version to the cloud, but not the other way around.

Thanks, Jason, but I CAN READ! FYI, that IS THE BUTTON I pushed. It is in THE EMAIL THEY SENT ME. In fact, EVERYTHING you have written and MUCH MORE is in our emails that went to the people WHO ACTUALLY PURCHASED the product, It just doesn't address our questions. If you would like to be "in the know" , send me a valid email and I will forward it to you ;-D

From email:

How to Get to the Cloud


1. Purchase your $49.00 upgrade by visiting http://cloud.cakeboss.com/home/upgrade.
2. Complete your purchase with PayPal.
3. You will then receive an important email from us with detailed instructions for sending your CakeBoss 2010 data to your Cloud account.

That is the text of the link in the email (the email is available from their FB page) but the link actually goes to a different URL (check the address bar of your browser), it looks like they messed up when putting together the announcement. Not a big deal, since as you said you can click the Shop button to navigate to the correct URL.

OMG, why do I keep clicking the little plus sign? I don't know if I can take so much new information all at once!

Do you have the software Jason? I'd like some information from someone with firsthand experience with it.

Nope...the best place to ask questions would be their FB page:
