QamarDeen 1.0.4 is now live in the App Store and in this version we have turned on iTunes File Sharing to allow you to manually backup and restore your QamarDeen data. iTunes normally backs up your data each time you sync your device, but for those who want a little extra assurance you can now have that. To backup your QamarDeen data simply connect your iOS device to your computer and open iTunes. Click on the name of your device in the devices list on the left hand side and then select the "Apps" tab. If you scroll down you should see the "File Sharing" section and QamarDeen as one of the apps that uses it.

If you select QamarDeen you should see the file "QamarDeen.sqlite" as shown above, you can press "Save to..." to save that file on your computer. To restore your data simply press the "Add..." button and choose the QamarDeen.sqlite file on your machine, when it prompts you if you would like to replace the file choose "Replace" and your data should be fully restored.
