When attempting to set up sync in the paid version 2.7.1, I do not receive a confirmation email. I have checked my spam folders and do receive other emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. Is this functionality broken in this software version on iOS 8?
I just requested the email from Gas Cubby at 1:38PM my time and received the email to my Gmail account almost instantly.
Tried again using my Yahoo address at 1:41PM and again, received it almost instantly.
You can resend the email/link. Please let me know if there's a delay in you receiving it.
If you do not have any data stored locally (just starting out) you may consider deleting the app and reinstalling.
