My question: can I configure the Obsidian iOS app to use Obsidian Sync and also Google Drive simultaneously?
I have read the clear warning about combining sync services yet still I would like to cross the streams, because I have a particular purpose in mind.
Specifically, I’m trying to setup Obsidian so that I have a vault which syncs across a macOS, iPadOS, iOS, and ChromeOS system. However, on the ChromeOS system, I don’t want to run Obsidian. There I want to access the vault folder directly with other applications.
I presume I could build this setup by using Google Drive to sync everywhere. But then I expect relatively slow and unreliable sync on iOS, based on my past experience with Google Drive as a File Provider on those platforms.
I could also do this by using Obsidian Sync on the Apple platforms, and then also installing Google Drive on my Mac and putting the vault in a folder managed by Google Drive. However, then the sync to ChromeOS will happen only as often as I run my Mac. And I open my iPhone much more frequently.
So this seems to leave the configuration I am contemplating: setup iOS as the platform that runs both sync services. Is this possible?
I searched the forums, the help docs, and reddit for notes on synchronization.
I’ve also looked at the iOS app’s settings, but I didn’t find anything clearly relevant.
