iRestoreSync creates a local database on your iPad so that you can run the job functions of iRestore even while disconnected from the internet. When you are back in range, you can then "sync" your data, which will do a bi-directional synchronization with the server, putting your changes on the server and bringing back changes from the server. These actions are initiated from the iPad menus.
