The Table Cloud Backups

The Table Cloud Backups feature allows you to backup your notes and highlights to the VGR Cloud, so they are never lost. This means if you get a new phone, you will still have access to access to any notes and highlights you previously made.

The Table Cloud Backup feature is a system that has several parts:

  • The app on your phone or tablet
  • Your account at branham.org
  • The actual storage of your backups on the VGR servers.

These three components work together to store and retrieve your files. The Table app must be linked to your VGR account, which then securely links The Table app to your own backups.

To use this feature, you must first make sure you have the latest Table app update installed. Once you have the latest Table app, you will then log in to your branham.org account through The Table app. This will allow you access to The Table Cloud Backup features: Backup and Restore From Backup.

The backup feature saves a copy of your notes and highlights to the VGR server. (You can choose to either backup automatically in the background, or manually select a button to create a backup.)

The restore from backup feature allows you to pull backups down from the server and load them in The Table app.


Here are a few instructions on using The Table Cloud Backups Feature.

Please be sure you have the latest Table application update from the App Store or Google Play Store. If your application is not up to date, the Cloud Backup option may not be available to you.
