Where is my data stored - can anyone else access it?

All of the app data is stored on your local device or your own personal Apple iCloud account.  It is not shared with the developer or available to anyone else.  Only those that have access to your devices have access to your data. See below for additional information regarding data storage for particular apps.

Transferring your data from one device to another

  Clever Net Worth can be used on your Apple Macs, iPhones and iPads.  However each device maintains its own local copy of the data which is not shared between your devices (or with anyone else).  If you are using Clever Net Worth on multiple devices, a change made on one set of accounts will not be seen on the other device. This is great if, for example, you are using the app for your accounts on a Mac and your partner is managing their own accounts on their iPad.  But what if you want to change the device you are using to manage your own accounts?  For example, you want to change from the Mac to your iPhone? Luckily, since v4.3 this is relatively easy to do.  Just follow the steps below: In summary: Install the latest version of Clever Net Worth on your new device If you purchased the Unlock Accounts inapp on your old device, ensure you have restored the purchase on your new device: Tap 'Settings & Support' Tap the 'New A/Cs Remaining = .... to UNLOCK' Tap the

What is shared between the Mac and iPad or iPhone versions of Clever Net Worth?

Clever Net Worth now works on both your Mac computer (desktop or laptop) and your iOS devices (iPhone and iPad).   If you have multiple device types that use the same AppleID, then there is some special linkage between the various versions: The 'Unlock Accounts' inApp that you have bought will work on all devices without having to pay for it a second or third time. As an example, if you bought the "Unlock Accounts" unlock on the iPad version of Clever Net Worth, this is also available for free on the Mac version of the same app.  To access it, just start the Mac version, tap on the 'Settings & Support' tab, tap on the first button in the list and the "Unlock Accounts" purchase screen will be displayed (which will initially have a price displayed). Then hit "RESTORE".  Your purchase from the iPad will be restored and applied to your Mac version!   However, all the account, balance and collection data is independent between your various d

How are the Puzzles Created?

  It may come as a surprise to some but there is a lot of work involved in creating the puzzle files used in my Anatomy Puzzles, Art Puzzles, Map Puzzles, Poster Puzzles and Window Puzzles apps.  All up it takes around 30 - 40 hours to create the 14 puzzles in a single pack. Here's a quick summary of the process used for each and every puzzle: First of all I need to search the web for interesting images that are: relevant to the pack being built,  high enough resolution (at least 2000 pixels on the longest side),  available for use in my apps (public domain or available under a suitable Creative Commons licence),  and most importantly be interesting and beautiful.   The above step alone can take some time and I will often search out at least 20 potential images for each pack - some don't make the grade in later steps. Next, I use the amazing iPad app "Procreate" with an Apple Pencil to: prepare the image - crop out unwanted portions, improve brightness if needed etc.

I'm Left Handed. How can I set this in the Puzzle apps?

  The various puzzle apps (e.g. Anatomy Puzzles, Art Puzzles, Window Puzzles etc) all use the mechanic of dragging a puzzle piece with your finger to the correct place in the puzzle.  By default the apps assume you are right handed and offset the piece to your left so your finger and hand do not obscure the piece while you are moving it.  But what if you are left-handed? Not to worry, all the puzzle apps have a left or right handed setting.  To change from right to left (or similarly back to right), tap the corresponding 'L' or 'R' button at the bottom right of the puzzle choice scene.  The setting will be remembered. Setting to Left handed mode will now offset the puzzle pieces to the right of your finger...just what is needed to not obscure the piece. Here is an image showing these buttons in Window Puzzles.

How do I turn Sound Effects on and off in the Puzzle Apps?

The various puzzle apps (Art Puzzles, Anatomy Puzzles etc) play a couple of sound effects by default when playing a puzzle: A "pop" sound when a piece is correctly placed A deep "bong" sound when a piece is placed in an incorrect location An angelic chorus sound when the puzzle is completed. You can choose to turn off these sounds by tapping the speaker button on the bottom right of the puzzle choice screen (next to the right / left icons).  The speaker button will look like one of the following: Sound Effects are currently on.  Tap this to turn them off. Sound Effects are currently off.  Tap this to turn them on. Turning the sound effects off will let you listen to your own music while playing the puzzles (for example, start the Music app, select some music and then go back to the Puzzle App).
