The 10GB limit is free online (sync/backup) storage on Anytype servers for Alpha types, as a “than you”; IIRC, Beta types will get 1GB.
The longest term intention is to charge for space on Anytype servers (these guys have to make a living!) and to support self-hosting, where you keep everything on your own systems (i.e. don’t need Anytype storage space.
I guess there might be a pricing tier that allows unlimited storage on Anytype servers, but details of how that service will be priced haven’t been decided yet.
I just wanted to confirm that I was able to install the new download, migrate my existing data into the new format, etc. (on the desktop), with no issues from my side. (MacOS)
I installed the new IOS version, which has all synced perfectly. I had a second or two of confusion as the fresh install had the same icon as the alpha release, but I have now changed the icon image within the app to tell them apart.
I’m assuming that the previous version. 0.31 is no longer needed and probably shouldn’t be used anymore ( On the desktop, it greyed out the icon, but it doesn’t let me choose an alternative icon)
The only issue I have seen has been a UI issue within the ‘Bin’ area where an item can be hidden behind the navigation selection at the bottom middle of the screen, but I will report this in the bug section. This is limited to the floating navigation bar in the desktop application, not the mobile version.
So I log into the Legacy Anytype and get the prompts to follow the steps to migrate:
Final export of all data within the Legacy app
Download the new app and Log In (instead of Sign up) with my existing Recovery phrase
Import my existing data from the Legacy app
Now I am up and running with the new App. I had few questions to clarify:
I believe the new App is now completely independent of the Legacy app and is a completely separate copy am I right?
If so, we can completely delete the Legacy app AND all its data too? I believe my data in the new App will be safe but what confused me is both the Legacy app and the new app use the exact same login details (Recovery phrase) so they are the exact same account am I right? If that is the case is it safe to go thru the Delete account process (see screenshot below) to clean up the Legacy app and its contents? Would it affect any data in the new App?
A corollary to the above question which confused me: given they are the exact same account then I was wondering why the new App wasn’t showing the 10GB extended storage bonus for Alpha testers? Which makes me think they might not be the same account and are independent of each other?
I’m so excited that we have come this far as a community. I am usually lurking in the background, reading the forum posts and back-reading the telegram channel, but I felt the need to come on and commend everybody for their contributions and efforts.
I just downloaded the latest version and easily migrated my old data to the new application. My 10GB of space also reflects when I check my account information. Now I will spend the next week or so re-learning how to best use anytype for my workflow.
I’m not sure my message will be noticed but I don’t exactly know where to post it so here we go.
I tried AnyType when it was in Alpha and I did not really like it back then, so I left it aside.
But I’ve noticed the beta phase was starting thanks to the AnyType Reddit so I wanted to give it another go … And it might be a lot better now.
But now apparently there is a way to get 10Gb of sync space for the Alpha users and I’m wondering if I’m able to get it, and how can I be ?
I started with a new recovery phrase I did not have a backup from my previous tests and it would not have left me do it without the backup.
So is it completely impossible now or there is still a possibility ?
