Feature Highlight: How to Recover a Lost App
An application launched in the rollApp’s cloud requires an Internet connection to be delivered right your computer, tablet or smartphone via a web browser.
To save changes or edit files, first of all, you need to connect a cloud storage service: Dropbox, Google Drive, Box.net or 4Shared. And that’s really easy – go to rollapp.com/profile/storage and click Connect New. Then you usually do one of the following:
- To save your work, use the File > Save command.
- To safely close the application, use the File > Exit command. It will also ask you to save your work.
Or what to do if you need to restart your computer. Or if you experience a power interruption while you’re editing.
Don’t worry, rollApp has a solution and it’s kind of neat.
When, for some unexpected reasons, an apps is closed, rollApp will keep it running for you during about 10 minutes in your rollApp account. During that time you can re-open it from you computer or any supported device – just make sure you’re using the same rollApp account.
Then you can find the lost app(s) in the My running apps area, it will also show you the timer (how much time remains for the app recovering), click the app icon to re-launch it:
