First off, using the Files app you should be able to "send" layouts from one version to the other. Also, you can mail them to yourself from one version to the other. Also, you can do it the way you said, using iTunes File Sharing

Thanks for sharing!!!
Dan, just wanted to make a correction to your post - I could not mail from one version to the other because the Beta version expired and could not be opened. If I had paid attention and knew ahead of time that the Beta was GOING to expire, you are correct, I could have mailed the layouts to myself to back up.  The entire problem I reported on is when the Beta completely stopped working, preventing me from opening it and taking steps to backup my layouts.   Thanks!

This is good to have as information, but also please remember that the Beta is:
1) free to use with Dropbox as a backup
2) not supposed to expire, really... so if it does, let us know so we can spin another version to bridge until we have something to share.

Thank you!
I use iPad 2's, which got left behind 3 months ago because they can't run a new iOS update that MD now uses. So I stopped getting updates on the MD2 beta - that's why the 90 day expiration just shut it off.  I realize I'm in an unusual situation, but I posted this because there are probably other iPad2 users in the beta program that will have the same situation.
Oh wow, hadn't thought about that. Sorry about that. In that case we could've bridged you another 90 days, but yeah... point taken. Thanks!
Hey there, would you kindly move the answer part of this to an answer and then mark it as accepted answer? This way it'll show up properly in lists like /qa.

At some point we'll modify the site to be able to mark questions as "answer in question."

Thanks!
