Not the end of the world for me. I figured just as much but thought asking it here was worth a shot. But a lot of stuff is backed up, just not the recent stuff, so I'll manage. I don't think my situation is common, but perhaps you could make a feature kind of like the Find my iPhone app (which I haven't used), that syncs from the webpage rather than the iPhone itself.
I recently broke my iPhone by dropping it and since I can't get past the "Unlock" screen, I obviously can't open the ToodleDo app. I haven't synced with the web server in at least a week since it is a US phone but I am in Taiwan so I don't get cellular data and WiFi is not easy for me to access. Since it doesn't look like I'll be able to use my iPhone any more, is there any way I can sync the data onto the web server or even to my computer through iTunes (which I can still sync my iPhone with)? Or am I stuck with all the changes since I last synced inaccessible forever?
