Finally a mobile verison of Cake Boss! Did anyone upgrade yet? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Thread Starter 
I upgraded my version this morning by clicking on the email link. The link took me to the cloud homepage where I clicked on the shop button. From there it gave me the option to up grade or purchase. I selected The upgrade, paid thru PayPal and within about 15 mins I received the email instructions on what to do! Pretty straight forward. You do have to accept the 2010 update when you open your desktop version and click the cloud button under preferences to merge your current data to the cloud. I personally had to send a help desk email but I think that has something to do with my computer and not the program. Waiting for a reply now.

I am contemplating downloading the upgrade, but from the YouTube video it looks to me that there really are no new features, except for it being available from the cloud.. They haven't added any of the requested features like inventories, or options for putting in expenses as individual items etc.. I'm not sure I can justify paying all the extra money just to have it available online. I mean.. it's really not that hard to log into the computer to get the info I need..


Can anyway who has the program confirm if there is actually anything really useful in the new version OTHER than it just being available through the cloud?

I'm going to try it, but if there isn't any new features, it certainly isn't worth it...

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I can definetly understand Having to justify the cost! I am constantly on the go with a lot of waiting time during dance season! My daughter does competive dance so I have 3 hours of waiting each day my daughter dance which is 3 times a week at min. So for me that's 9 hours + a week I can use to update customer information, my calendar, keep better track of expenses etc! Having mobile access to cake boss is like a dream come thru in my case! Now I would be a very happy camper if I can get a response to tmy email as to why I can't get access!

I had been using cake boss 2010 for a couple of months when my computer crashed.  Once it was restored I could no longer get into my program Contacting support, they decided that my back up, on a USB, was corrupt and I could no longer get my saved data.  I was forced to start from scratch so I upgraded to the cloud for safety.  Not only do you not get preloaded material and ingredients when you upgrade but the is also a problem with conversions.  I have to convert lbs to ounces in order to get equivalents in cups.  I have been going round and round with the support dept for 5 days with no avail!

Thank you for this! Very helpful. I've been thinking about doing the upgrade for this reason(backup) but maybe I'll wait until they figure out their quirks. You'd think they would have worked that out before releasing the update.

Am I understanding correctly that the cloud based program works independently of the PC program, and if you have both they don't talk to each other? Or is the idea that people will migrate from their current PC program onto the cloud based version?
