But automatic sync in Emacs should be quite straightforward and is
independent of the mobile end.  You can use a timer, for instance:

,----[ C-h f run-with-idle-timer RET ]
| run-with-idle-timer is an interactive compiled Lisp function in
| ‘timer.el’.
| (run-with-idle-timer SECS REPEAT FUNCTION &rest ARGS)
| Perform an action the next time Emacs is idle for SECS seconds.
| The action is to call FUNCTION with arguments ARGS.
| SECS may be an integer, a floating point number, or the internal
| time format returned by, e.g., ‘current-idle-time’.
| If Emacs is currently idle, and has been idle for N seconds (N < SECS),
| then it will call FUNCTION in SECS - N seconds from now.  Using
| SECS <= N is not recommended if this function is invoked from an idle
| timer, because FUNCTION will then be called immediately.
| If REPEAT is non-nil, do the action each time Emacs has been idle for
| exactly SECS seconds (that is, only once for each time Emacs becomes idle).
| This function returns a timer object which you can use in ‘cancel-timer’.
