I have tried to get Obsidian working on iOS and Android twice and failed - is it just not simple enough for someone at my level?

So I’m wondering if I should wait for it to be a bit more simple - basically I am trying to do it on both apple and android, and I am syncing via Google Drive, but the walkthroughs seem too complex and I can’t get it working. Is it best to wait until there is a more neat solution? Thanks!

IMO Yes. The only viable solutions as of now seem to be using the proprietary Obsidian sync. Otherwise, you have a separate solution for keeping your local files in sync with files in Google Drive. On Android, it is relatively easy using apps like Foldersync (as described in the official walkthrough), but on iOS, there doesn’t seem to be an easy way.
