Hi there! Yesterday, I installed Diarium on my Android phone & MacOS computer, and I'm syncing the diary to Dropbox.
I've been filling in images from the last year or so (around 6 images per month). I love it, and hope to start using it to save a photo from each day.
But, even with this relatively sparse use, I've also noticed that my diary size is already 30 MB, and the Android cache for the app is 90 MB. It makes sense -- my phone takes big images!
My intention is to use this app long-term, saving images over many years. But, I wonder if the space it takes up is going to be a problem over time. Since Diarium is (I assume) keeping the entire diary in local storage, is it possible that it'll eventually take up so much space that it's impractical to keep on my phone?
That would be a shame -- I like being able to snap and save photos on my phone, and write more about the day later on my computer. I really, really like it.
Is there any way for image-heavy diaries to not keep the images stored locally? Instead, storing them primarily in Dropbox, and only fetching & caching smaller versions as they're requested?
Or, maybe it already works that way? I can't tell. Not finding much written about it.
It looks like it might already be compressing the images some; I'm almost surprised my diary is under 100MB so far.
Any clarification on what storage optimization is already done (if any), is much appreciated!
Thanks for your time -- let me know if I didn't explain myself well. :-)
