Can there be a way to share assets and symbols across devices? Making one on an iPad and then using it on a Mac or vice verse, would be greatly beneficial.  Other than placing them within a document and staring that between devices, and then adding them to a category seems really cumbersome and frankly, unintuitive and clunky for such powerful software

Symbols are document specific objects -- they are not shared with any other document. So regardless of which device you open the document with, you should see the same symbols in it if it has any.

Assets can generally only be shared via the export/import procedure; however,  for the desktop versions only there is an alternative: create a document, add assets to it, & from the Assets Studio panel's 'hamburger' menu, select "Embed in current document." Do that, & when opened in another desktop app on another device, you will get this:
AFAIK, the iPad version neither supports the "Embed in current document" option nor will it offer to import embedded assets.
