TROUBLESHOOTING iCloud backup vs. iTunes backup: The MyCrimp application does not backup operational data to iCloud (in order to minimize the size of the backup). In order to backup all the MyCrimp data (crimp specs, favorites, …) users must use the full backup through iTunes. In general operation, there is no operational difference between the backup types. However this can impact the user in the situation where they restore their device from an iCloud backup. This would happen for example when a user upgrades their device. In order for all data to be retained after a restore from backup, users must backup through iTunes. Alternatively, users can delete and re-install the MyCrimp application after a restore (user favorites will be lost).
