The My Health Care Wishes App
In September 2016, the ABA ceased new sales of the My Health Care Wishes Pro app due to reasons of financial sustainability.
The app may be revived and released under new ownership sometime in 2017 or 2018. When that happens, we will report it under “What’s New.”
In the meantime, the app will continue to be usable indefinitely on your phone, but it is important that you backup all your information. We highly recommend this if you have not previously done so. You must perform a Backup if you intend to upgrade to a new phone. The backing up process works only from iPhone to iPhone and from Android to Android phone.
To Backup your content - Click on the ‘Backup’ icon at bottom of screen and choose Backup. There will be two options Backup and Restore. Choose ‘Backup’ and the DropBox window will appear.
If you already have a DropBox Account click on Allow and sign in. All your information will be backed up. If you do not have a DropBox account, you will need to sign up for an account (it’s easy and it’s free) by choosing ‘Use a different account’ and signup.
To Restore your content - Click on the ‘Backup’ icon at bottom of screen and then choose ‘Restore’. You might see one or more backup files in the display. Choose which file you wish to use to restore your information, they are sorted by date. Click on the file you which to restore and your file will then be restored into the app.
Note: If the back-up files do not appear, try refreshing the display on bottom right and list should then appear. This works of course only if you previously performed a backup within the app.
